|The Threes speak of the strong creation through
the element to which they belong. This creation
leads to advancement and growth which propels
you forward, sometimes uncomfortably.
Three is referred to as the number of the mind.
The number three is closely aligned with the
triangle in geometry. The triangle in alchemy
was the symbol of logic, intellect and reason. It
was also the symbol of fire. The triangle is also
another analogy for the trinity.
The Three also gives a sense of completion,
although normally that of the completion of a
portion of a project rather than the entirety of the
The Kabalistic Link for the Number 3 is Binah,
Understanding, the Throne. Binah is negative,
and thus able to receive the positive flow from
Chokmah. She is the great Mother of the
Universe, but she is also at the top of the Pillar
|of Severity, for the embodied spirit sees death on the
horizon as soon as it is born. The idea of
experiencing sorrow and death is implicit in the
descent of life into form. The seed planted in the
earth dies that it may multiply, so Binah is death for
the Chokmah force and truly belongs on the pillar of
Severity. The next six Sephiroth are what the
Kabalists call the Lesser Countenance of the Cosmos
on a lower plane. Here we will find the forces of
growth and abundance.
