LIBER TRIGRAMMATON - (English Alphabet Attributions)
Class A Document
Here is Nothing under its three forms. It is not, yet informeth all things.
E - The Triple Light, the Triple Flame, J- The Hook, The Horn of Plenty
Now cometh the glory of the Single One, as an imperfection and stain.
But by the Weak One the Mother was it equilibrated.
Soft C, P – The Pregnant Goddess
Also the purity was divided by Strength, the force of the Demiurge.
I – The Projectile
And the Cross was formulated in the Universe that as yet was not.
A – The Five Fold Star
But now the Imperfection became manifest, presiding over the fading of perfection.
Z, Nf - The Lightning Flash
Also the Woman arose, and veiled the Upper Heaven with her body of stars.
B – The Book 2 , Y consonant
Now then a giant arose, of terrible strength; and asserted the Spirit in a secret rite.
H – The Fortress
And the Master of the Temple balancing all things arose; his stature was above the Heaven and below Earth and Hell.
D – The Bow 3
Against him the Brothers of the Left-hand Path, confusing the symbols. They concealed their horror [in this symbol];
R - The Emperor, x-The Cross
for in truth they were
┘ The Black Brothers
The master flamed forth as a star and set a guard of Water in every Abyss.
Q – The Lion, F – An Axe
Also certain secret ones concealed the Light of Purity in themselves, protecting it from the Persecutions.
K (hard C) – The Virgin
Likewise also did certain sons and daughters of Hermes and of Aphrodite, more openly
G – Union
But the Enemy confused them. They pretended to conceal that Light, that they might betray it, and profane it.
S – The Serpent
Yet certain holy nuns concealed the secret in songs upon the lyre.
M – The Wave, The Valley
Now did the Horror of Time pervert all things, hiding the Purity with a loathsome thing, a thing unnameable.
Sf – The Son
Yea, and there arose sensualists upon the firmament, as a foul stain of storm upon the sky.
┘4 The Black Brothers
And the Black Brothers raised their heads; yea, they unveiled themselves without shame or fear.
w – Vision 5
Also there rose up a soul of filth and of weakness, and it corrupted all the rule of the Tao.

Then only was Heaven established to bear sway; for only in the lowest corruption is form manifest.
L (upright) – Balance – A Foot
Also did Heaven manifest in violent light,
N – The Gate
And in soft light.
O – The Moon, Y (vowel)
Then were the waters gathered together from the heaven,
V – The Horns of Power 7
And a crust of earth concealed the core of flame.
T – The Table
Around the globe gathered the wide air,
U – The Cup
And men began to light fires upon the earth.

Therefore was the end of it sorrow; yet in that sorrow a sixfold star of glory whereby they might see to return unto the stainless Abode; yea, unto the Stainless Abode.
W – The Eyes (Spirit)
1 The manner of manifestation
2 The Book is Knowledge, the Fanning (unfolding) of the Pages are the breasts of Our Lady concealed in the shape of the letter.
3 That which propels the Arrow across the abyss)
4 L for Foot denotes Balance
5 The eyes in lower case denoting blindness
6 Actually, T final = 89 the “Wrong Kind of Silence”
7 The shape suggests rain, funnelling or draining of water

Ø – denotes Hebrew Key Tf – denotes t final used Sf – denotes s final used Nf – denotes n final used ĸ – denotes hard c − denotes L upright ω − denotes initial w
- The Law = 220 (hence number of the BOOK CCXX)
The Law = (98 + 7 + 1) + (50 + 4 + 60) = 220
- HORUS= 440 = ( ) Crowley = Knowledge = Winged Globe = Secret Word = Kundalini
HORUSf and HORUS. These are 458 and 440 respectively. We expect the current of Horus to persist through this Aeon. Taking the formula for this current then, with a non-final (non-terminating) S we have 440, a further glyph of these currents and a general formula for many operations under this new scheme : --- As 40 into 11 it is the magickal force (11) of the glyph M (M=40), whose properties are also general attributions of the God: e.g. They typical image of the God is that of a naked child, surrounded by an egg of blue, and pressing the index finger to his lips. The egg of blue is the womb, which is the motherhood of M, this womb is the sea of Binah, which is M, and finger to the lips denotes the silence of M. ---- As 220 into 2, it is the intelligible manifestation of The Law (220) in the sphere of the Living Word (2, Chokmah). ---- As 44 into 10, it is Authority (4 into 11, the magickal force of Jupiter, and the elements) over the 10th sphere or Material Plane (Malkuth).
- AIWAZ = 4 + 4 + 60 + 4 + 6 = 78
(that is, Aiwaz manifest in Kether versus Aiwass the same force manifest into Chokmah) This is the number given by Him for His name. It had not been confirmed until now.
N.B 78 = Σ12 the summation of all numbers from 1 to 12, and their synthesis.
- AIWASS (SSf) = 4 + 4 + 60 + 42 + 42 = 156
(Aiwaz manifest into Chokmah = 78 × 2 = 156. Note the curious transition from the Z to the double s and the accompanying phonetic changes. A mystery is here concealed as to the distinction between these two manifestations.)
S is the serpent that climbs the Tree of Life, while Z is the Lightning that flashes through the sephiroth.
- AIWAZ (W) = 4 + 4 + 400 + 4 + 6 = 418
(Aiwaz with W activated gives us the formulaic number for this Being, as declared by Himself in Liber Al vel Legis.)
- HOOR= 7 + 200 + 200 + 9 = 416 = Winged Secret Flame, The Sacred Mysteries, Place of Silence
The elemental Form of Horus (Note his Two Eyes) explained below.
- RA HOORKHU = 13 + 416 + 237 = 666 = Σ36 = LUXFIRE = Edward Alexander Crowley
Ra = The Sun
Hoor = The Horizon
Khu = Means Light, and symbolized to the Ancient Egyptians the concept of the Self (The impersonal Life force that manifests in the Soul) For religionists, Khu can be interpreted as the Soul and the phrase “The Khabs is in the Khu, not the Khu in the Khabs” – Liber vel Legis I, 8 and can be translated as “Heaven is in the Soul; not the Soul in Heaven”. Note that, hbha = 5+ 2+ 5+ 1= 13= dja = 4+ 8+ 1Ø, and that AHBH which in the new Key is 22: the entirety of the old Law, which the Book of the Law now places in proper relation as under Will, i.e. under Thelema (Will is English for the Greek ΘΕΛΗΜΑ). 24 Note that Ra-Hoor-Khuit is called “The Visible Object of Worship”; MESSIAH = 40 + 1 + 24 + 24 +4 + 4 + 7 = 104.
LUXFIRE-- What generations past corrupted as Lucifer: The Morning Star, Herald of Dawn, The One who comes raging like a comet from the sky, and in falling, burns and lights the Heavens for the Eyes of the Children of the Earth. A holy name concealing the marriage of Light and Fire. It is the Initiate’s Love and his Lust for the Earth which has him fall and give of this Fire and Light to Others.
- RA-HOOR-KHU or 13 + 416 + 237 is now 666, the word into Tiphareth, versus 444 of the old system (the word into Chesed), essentially reaffirming this force as Solar. See mystical numbers of the heavenly bodies.
Ra-Hoor or The Sun on the Horizon
Ra-Hoor-Khu or The Light of the Sun on the Horizon
13 = Ra (The Sun) = YH the Father and the Mother of the old glyph, and also AHBH (hbha, Love) and AChD (dja , Unity) of the same.
416 denotes the God’s elemental Form (104 × 4) or the Messiah24into the 4th sphere (Power) which further breaks down to Love acting Materially (13 × 8 × 4) through Mercury (The Word).
Combining this with Ra we have 13 + 13 × 32 = 13 × 33 or 13 × 11 × 3 for RA HOOR: The Magical Force (11) acting upon Love (13) acting upon Binah (3). Note the idea of Power and how this magickal force is applied to Binah in one case (the active and not in the passive form) in light of the 12th Aire: “There is no power that may endure save only the power that descendeth in this my chariot from Babylon”. ( Babylon is a corruption of BABALON, the Formula by which one transcends and releases the Energies of Binah.)
- Note that RA HOOR= 13 × 11 × 3 while HOORPAARKRAAT = 13 × 11 × 4 and that RA HOOR and HOORPAARKRAAT are the active and passive formulae of the same God HORUS.
237 is Khu: He is the very Self of RA-HOORand all that this entails as explained above.
237 = 79 × 3; 79 a prime oddly omitted from the traditional literature26, and this current acting upon Binah once again, so it is again that Power that descends along Cheth (which is 418 spelt fully Cheth + Yod + Tau = 8 + 10 + 400) the Chariot of BABALON and the path uniting Binah to Geburah, the 5th sphere.
When combined into the Unity of the God’s name, these add up to 666 which is the summation (and so contains the idea) of all the glyphs from 1 to 36. It is the most mystical of the numbers for the Sun, and reaffirms this as essentially a Solar diety. It is the triple Aleph or the Living Word into the 6th sphere, Tiphareth, the Human Consciousness.
- RA HOORKHUIT = 759 = 666 + 93
(93, a number dear to Thelemites, denoting the Old Aeon glyph for Aiwass and Thelema, is here added as a termination to the God Name, indicating the manifestation of the God
- PAARKRAAT = 156 = KAOS = BABALON = KAOS, the Victorious Queen in the old Key. Reference notes on Aiwass.
- HOORPAARKRAAT = 416 + 156 = 572 = O Nuit! = The Prophet and his Bride [Hoor (416) + PAARKRAAT (156) ] = LOTUS = One Sword = One of Heaven = Universal Heart
Here we see the elemental form of the God (HOOR) combining with the Supernal energies. Observe that:
RA HOOR= 11 × 13 × 3 : The Magical Force (11) acting upon Love (13) acting upon Binah (3), while:
HOORPAARKRAAT = 11 × 13 × 4, The Magical Force (11) acting upon Love (13) acting upon Chesed (4)
And that these are two halves of the One God HERU RA HA.
Note also, The Prophet and his Bride = 572 = HOOR(416) + BABALON (156), of which The Beast and The Scarlet Woman are emissaries. HOORPAARKRAAT is Harpocrates in the Greek or HORUS the Child. He is the Child God of the Love Between these two Forces.
His is The Universal Heart of the Aspirant. He is denoted as the Silent and Passive form of the God HERU RA HA.
- HOORPA KRAAT = 416 + 7 + 136 = 559
13 is left out of formulae in this title of the God
- ANKH F Nf KHONSU = 111 + 2 + 6 + 531 = 650 = L.U.X.
ANKH AF NA KHONSU = 111+ 6 + 74 + 531= 722
= RA HOORKHUIT + 56
ANKH AF NA KHONSU (ŏ) = 111+ 6 + 74 + 531= 602
ANKH = 111 (The triple Aleph – an old glyph of the Word emanating from Creation.)
- KHONSU (ŏ) = 401 = “He is the First and Last” : the Aleph(1) and the Tau (400); that is, he is EW on the scale, the East and the West – HE contains the entire tradition / Path with Him.
- KHONSU = 531 = The Virgin and the Man = Inviolate = The glory Ineffable = Thy Secret Temple = Secret & Not
- HAD = 19
A prime number, indicating the current to be found in the 2nd Aire. Traditionally, interpreted as the feminine glyph. See also Job in the Tradition.
- NU = 270 = 3^3 × 10
The Supreme Goddess Unmanifest. Note this action upon the 3rd sephira raised exponentially (think: recursively) upon itself : and this acting upon Malkuth, the Kingdom, or the glyph 1 0 which as Unit and Space contains All.
- IT = 93
(A suffix to God names and formulae, indicating manifestation, i.e. that He or She is manifest: eg, Nu, Had versus Nuit, Hadit)
- HADIT =112 = An Ibis, Chit, Ptah, Path, Beth, Magician
All these ideas pertaining to Chokmah and the Grade Therein : (112 = 56 × 2, the old glyph for Nu upon Chokmah; i.e. Mazloth – a star in Her body); the Ibis which is sacred to Thoth, the Egyptian form of Mercury which “presides” over Chokmah in his office as the Living Word; Ptah partaking of this Sephira as well as after Uranus; Chit is the mindstuff – the effusive river of energies called thought; Beth is the corresponding Path of the Magician, i.e. the Magus28
- THELEMA = 221 = The Shrine
The word of the law is Thelema” might translate : The Word (Aleph) + The Law = Thelema : 1 + 220 = 221)
- BES NA MAUT = 456 = Enginery of War = The Chief of All (L averse) = O Blessed Beast (L averse) = Uraeus
- MAUT = 333 = Fallen and Defiled
The number of Choronzon in the old Key
- MAAT = 137 = Thebes
- TA NECH = 93 + 108 = 201, Tf
TA NECH = 102 + 108 = 210 = Σ20 = A Babe in an Egg, Titan
- COPH NIA = 93 + 78 (= 93 + AIWAZ) = 171
- ABRAHADABRA = 23 + HAD + 23 = 65 = Aleph = (The double word of power uniting the 6 and 5 = 65)
- L.U.X. = 650 = Ankh f n Khonsu (= 65 x 10 = Abrahadabra x 10) = Night of Time = NOX (ŏ)
L.U.X. which culiminates in the Union with HGA is the equivalent of 65 (or the two-fold word, ABRAHADABRA) into the material plane or 10th sphere (650) is the other half of N.O.X. which

together are 13 x 10 x 10.
- My heart =156 = AIWASS = BABALON = KAOS
- My tongue = 699 = Word of the Law = A Secret Key of this Law
- Restriction = 465 = Σ30 = Black Brothers = Double = Wickedness
- BE-WITH-US = 418 = Let ASARbe with ISA = The Silver Star = Perfection = The Prophet (ŏ)
(418 – a Glyph for the Great Work accomplished and Abrahadabra (Ø) in the old Key. Note also in the injunction: “Let Asar be With Isa” that ASAR+ ISA = 333 in the old Key and 73 in the new. This may be suggestive to NEMO.)
- Seven spirits of unrighteousness = 1550 = 155 into Malkuth (155 = evil, veil)
- NEMO = 311 = The Beast & His Bride = TARO = ROTA = Every way Perfect = The Self-Slain (See Ankh-af-na-Khonsu)
- SEBEK = 439 = Crocodile
- Crowned Child = 450 =“Amoun”
(Amoun is mate to Maut, father to Ankh-af-na-Khonsu: a revision of the YHVH formulae) He is both the father and son of their love.
Moloch, is Baal, which is Abel, or Apis the Bull and he appears as a man with the head of a bull, and later, a calf. In a sense, He is the dark or averse side of Kether, and has been alternately viewed as a God and a demon depending on the culture of the nation. He demands great sacrifice (often the first born), and the Initiate must slay the God’s appearance in the final projection of this sphere.
- Great work = 440 Tf
- The Great Work = 777
- No-thing = 469 = Being Not = Let Being be Empty = The Chief of All
- English Alphabet = 486 = Key of this Law
- Cosmos = 518 = Chaos is my name = Egg of Blackness
(Cosmos is the Naming of Chaos i.e. attributing an Order to elements in the Universe: the Egg of Blackness, which is Spirit.)
- O Prophet = 521 = A Word = Saviour = ISIS, my mother = Strange Pale God = Be done with Speech = The work is ended = Annihilation = Divine Perfection
An interesting set of entries. Taken from Liber vel Legis, technically it refers to the scribe of the Book, who as a Student in Chokmah, was the Word made Flesh, which children of Men take for Messianic force (Saviour). This prophet is extolled to abandon this bloodless Life (Strange Pale God), to be Silent*, for the Work is ended, and the Annihilation of Himself into this Force, that is the Word (instead of opposing and so refracting it in Speech) results in the Divine Perfection – a title of Kether. *Liber Bvel Magi 2-3: “2. …the Word that is God is none other than He. 3. How shall He end His Speech with Silence? For He is Speech.”
- MERCURIUS = 535 = The Ruby Star = The Serpent Flame Therein = Beast of the Field
- The Great Work = 777 = Key of the Vault = Three Ordeals in One = Yea Than, Yea Theli, yea Lilith*
*The three ordeals and their passwords.
- The Understanding = 701 = The Gate of the Abyss = The Four Beasts = Knowledge and Delight
- City of Fifty Gates = 718 = Of All Truth = Company of Heaven
- Secret Understanding = 731 = Secretest Chamber of the Palace = One Knowledge = Absolute Bliss = Sweeter than death (ϖ)
- Power of Understanding = 1070 = Stabat Crux Juxta Lucem*= Stabat Lux Juxta Crucem* = Light, LIFE, LOVE, Force, Fantasy, FIRE = Wisdom and Folly
The first two entries denote the proper means of acquiring and increasing such Power as witnessed in the 10th Aire. The third lists the virtues of such a Power. The car called Millions of Years refers to the soul’s path. Power of Understanding as we know by the incidence, reciprocity and identity (See BABALON AND KAOS) is equivalent to Wisdom (the traditional title for Chokmah) which leads to Folly (The Fool, is a title corresponding to the Kether).
*Two means of achieving such power. See the 6th Aire. Lat: Erect the Cross near the Light; and, Erect the Light near the Cross.
- The Gates of Understanding = 1156 (scale of 156) = The Wisdom of the New Aeon
(A beautiful example of the Geometries revealed by the Key. Here we have the two Supernal Formulae, contiguous and counterbalancing themselves on the more material continuum of 103, Understanding or Binah and Wisdom or Chokmah, being technical terms corresponding to 2nd and 3rd spheres and here adding to 156 × 10, whose formula for transcendence and release is 156.)
- The Throne of Understanding = 1288 = Watchtowers of the Universe (see Liber 418)
- Winners of the Ordeal X = 1087 = The Royal and the Lofty
- That Mighty Devil Choronzon = 1317 = Weird and Monstrous Speech*= Tremble ye O Pillars of the Universe (from 10th Aire before confrontation with this Demon) *See 10th Aire.
- The Stone of the Philosophers = 1366 = The Gross must pass through fire = Hold! Hold! Bear up in thy Rapture = In swoon of the Excellent Kisses!
Succumbing to the ecstasies and the Bliss destroys the Energies that are the cause of which it is the effect. Orgasm or Samadhi—these are Death. The Communion is over. Yet, it is the Reward of the Operation.
- The Whirlpool and Leviathan and the Great Stone = 1371 = The dung of Choronzon = The Great Snake of Khem, the Holy One
(Note: This is one less than the Lord of the Forces of Matter. See doctrine on the Shame of Khem and 4th Aire wherein all this is enacted.)
- The Lord of the Forces of Matter = 1372 = The great princes of the Evil of the World = Olalam Imal Tutulu (Regards Mayan, and the 2nd and 3rd Aires)
Note here the (666 + 20) into Chokmah. 666 reduces to the Unity for it is the Number of a Magus, for “He is One”*. It is also three circles, taking in from above by the glyph of the numeral (see doctrine on three Wheels). * “One is the Magus, twain his forces…” Liber Bvel Magi, 00
- Victory over Choronzon = 1519 = Aye! Listen to the Numbers and the Words = The Athanoor called Dissolution = Unity Uttermost Showed
Aye! Listen to the Numbers and the Words: a promise to NEMO who confronts this dispersive Force. In this wise, Let Him be Sure.
- The Key of the Pylon of Power = 1403 = The Chosen Priest & Apostle of Infinite Space = Warrior of Ra Hoor Khu*= The wisdom of Ra Hoor Khuit* = The Reward of Ra Hoor Khut*
* Different manifestations of the God taken verbatim from the text.
- The Stabilities of Being and of Consciousness and of Bliss = 1777 = Leaping Laughter and Delicious Langour ( )
- The Direful Judgments of Ra Hoor Khuit = 1812 = The Palace of Two Hundred and Eighty Judgments = The Wings of Maut the Vulture
Self-explanatory. Recall that Maut = 333. The Palace of Two Hundred and Eighty Judgments is encountered in the 3rd Aire after where the Seer de-feathering the Vulture takes these for the plumes of his Arrow.
- Thus Is the Art and Craft of the Magus But Glamour = 2222 (Note this action : the Grand Scale of 2 and its relation to Chokmah.)
This short list shows that the text of Liber vel Legis is consistent with both the English Key and the Mystical Traditions and Interpretations we have from prior researches. Meanwhile it may be of interest to compare the values of certain formulae and names in light of this new key. These revisions further explicate the nature of the formulae in light of the new key and the New Aeon energies.

The Letter A a
A is the Star: that Fire Visible in the Sky corresponding each one to a Living Soul on Earth. It is that Point of Light that shines in the Darkness of Night; it is that which is fixed above the revolving Earth to guide the Traveller. Its sound when prolonged is the Song of Ecstasy (Aaaaaa!). When punctuated with H, or the Light, it is the sound of discovery (aha!) so that the A in itself concentrates already that Light into the Wheel, whereas the I, is the Ray, the Hollow Tube wherein was hidden the stolen Fire of Heaven. By extending the middle bar, it becomes the Pentagram. In this way the A, the Star can be see as the concentration of this Light, whereas I is the projectile Light. And these are both the feminine and masculine forms of 4.
*A is also the Arrow after a certain mystery (see Liber 418), wherein the projectile nature is also evinced.
B is the first of three "Stable" glyphs whose value is 6 , The lower case "b" denotes the 6 in its shape, which corresponds to its numerical value. B– uppercase, is The Book, fanned open as seen from its figure is Open to All. Traditionally associated with the "Word" it denotes the Word Spoken (not the Word Flesh) and is that Falseness and Illusion which is the Highest truth below the Veil of the Abyss and lights the happy, balanced, golden character of Tiphareth.
Mystically, it is the glyph for the Conversation of the HGA. Its appearance in Formulae such as BABALON for instance, announces the Conversation as the catalyzing initial step, which is again revisited before Balance is achieved and ON is opened, and the N is set to vibration.
C is the glyph of NUIT. It is the over-arching of the Night Sky (even the crescent of the Moon, after another manner); it is the womb and in a sense represents the Cup manifest in one of its more immediate and practical incarnations. For the first Sky of Man is the wall of the Womb, and the Gash in the Sky from which the Light pours in is the Yoni, and all these symbols are interchangeable here.
As a yoni, or a womb, or a Cup, it is necessarily modified in character by that which is poured into it, or that which it contains. Hence we see that the C glyph takes on two distinct phonetic existences: It can be Soft or Yielding, as in the word Celebration; or Hard and Active as in the word Cat.
When followed by one of the female vowels A, O or U, it is usually ‘hard’ in the English language. Examples are case, cane, cone, copper, cute and cuddly. In this case C takes on the Value of 30 which is K, its homophone, holy to DIANA the Huntress, and even BABALON.
Hard C, Soft C—This is a simple case of phonetics, the hard c and k being homophones are given the same value. In fact, the letter C has no distinct phonetic existence. When soft as in the word "cedar" it is phonetically, an S; when hard as in "case" it is phonetically equivalent to a K.
*However, the attentive Student will note either the addition of a k to a word terminating in c (as in magick) and the growing tendency of people to replace c with a k in alternate spellings of a name or catch-phrase. In this way, "kool" is cooler than "cool" and "Karla" is sexier than "Carla". Most Ad and PRfirms exploit this truth. Instinctively aware of this development, they use its power to attract attention. Finally, by employing it, and disseminating its use, advertisers themselves contribute to the advance of this evolution.
D is the BOW that makes swift (and deadly) the ARROW. This is the first indication of movement. The A is light fixed in a Star, the Bis a vibration, the C is that which receives (say, feels) the Vibration. With D we have the first notion of movement, and it is the primum mobile, that which is All Motion, but Moves Not. It’s value is 8 and by its shape we have a hint of this infinite motion contained in its double loop and centre-fold.
E is the Light, the Breath and the Fire in One. The First of the Letters, it is the Foundation of all other glyphs and replaces the aleph as the First, the primum mobile.
*See letters U,V and W in this chapter. The Student will note the transition in the Latin of the p into the f of English as in pater for father, pedis for foot. The Greeks overcame the difficulty by appending an h to the P, hence the ph equivalent to the English F in Greek-derived words such as phonograph, telephone, physics, etc.
The nature of this force is double, or as is said, it is double-wanded. As 2, it is the force that divides, the axe or the hatchet which makes 2 of 1 (e.g. in the act of splitting a single log in two). And this ‘f’ is the division between the Waters Above and the Waters Below the Firmament it is the Aethyr, or the Aire by which Vision, Hearing, Distance and in a sense, Time, are made Possible.
When Initial it is 10, which is Ph its homophone, and is the female counterpart to the 2 (the 1 0, that is the Lingam standing by the Yoni), the Pregnant Goddess (P) enthroned (H).
This reveals further revisions in the old formulae. IAO, which was revealed to be FIAOF to correct the short-sightedness of IAO, which was enumerated at 93, is in actuality 220.
Union, Coitus, the Beloved and the Lover, Summing: all these are symbols pertinent to G. In shape it denotes the Lingam and Yoni conjoined (the C taking in the horizontal I) and also the Child in its Womb. Its very Nature destroys duality and its numerical glyph of (2 0) denotes this Union that is the Reduction to 0 through the Union of the opposite (the 2 reducing to the 0, which is the Great Work). The Wheel is the Circle Squared and all androgynous Gods, and all Child gods preside over its operation and for this reason, it is the first vocalizations infants make. It is also one of the primal letters and corresponds to primal conditions and forces. It requires no teeth and no tongue to pronounce, but only the action of the throat and so it is one of the sounds infants first articulate, as in the "goo-goo ga-ga" of the folklore.
The uppercase H denotes a castle with its two towers in shape, while the lowercase h, denotes the throne.
It is in fact, the softening* of the I, which is responsible for many additions of letters and the transition from Latin to the Romance Languages. This ‘I’ in the English gives birth to J (through union with G) and the Y sounds; to H sounds in Spanish and modified G in French and Italian. The introduction of the letter J into English usage can be traced to Spanish influence, in which the softening of the I became a H. Thus original Iesus in Spanish (or Hay-Zeus), becomes Jesus, the letter J in Spanish denoting the English H sound. Similarly, the I in French and Italian took on a soft g instead of a j, as in gesu. The Hebrew glyph Yod, transliterated as I, also plays a contribution in J’s usage in English. An example is Halleluyah and Hallelujah, where j retains its original ‘I’ phoneme.
Of the Three homophones: the K, Q, and the hard C: The K has always been favoured by the Poets. Its very existence is at War with two other letters with which the K must Fight for survival.
L is the Balance, without which there could be no Movement. It resembles a Leg and a Foot in shape: that is, the lower parts of Man.
The Squaring of the Circle or its Failure are mysteries that correspond to the letter L, which can take two values, the Upright and the Averse depending on the letters immediately following and preceding it. Whether this letter is Averse or Upright is decided by whether the particular Balance is established or Not.
One of the Mother letters in the Old Key, its shape denotes a Wave or a Valley carved by a River, and has traditionally been associated with the element Water. Mystically, it has been the symbol of self-sacrifice, of motherhood and the Hanged Man, in the Book TARO. Also, to pronounce ‘m’ requires compressing both lips shut, and thus it has also been associated with Silence in the Tradition*.
The Letter O o
The O is the Moon, the reflective nature of Water and the Egg of Spirit. It is also the Universe or the reflective nature of Consciousness. In both cases, reflection (= projection) is implied. It is 80 when it is New and when Full it is 200. Like the Cup, the Moon is Full when directly facing the Sun: Only then does it Receive fully of its Light and is wholly illumined. And as the Sky at Night, it is The Splendour into the Kingdom which is 8 (the 8th sphere - Hod - Splendour) into 10 (Malkuth, the Kingdom) or 80; which in the Day, shines Golden like the Cup which is 200.
* The symbol for Mercury is the symbol of Venus crowned with the Crescent Moon, or Horns of Power.

The Letter V v
Resembling Horns in shape, V is the glyph of that which born of the skull, gores the flesh and uproots the tree. It’s value is 80, which is that of the soft O, or the new or crescent moon, its corresponding female glyph. Note that both glyphs resemble these horns in shape.*
* The difference between these letters and their correspondents on the pole of the sexes, is in their shape at the root. U and C are right angle images of each other, and differ from the V only at the base, which in the latter case resolves to a point and in the case of the U is a continuous, smooth arc.
* This is always the case when the effect of a glyph is perceived but not isolated or understood: Humanity seeks to relate the unknown to something it knows. Until it separates the action of its combination with other elements, it sees the new glyph as modifications or variations of an existing glyph.
That path which leads to the open EYE and is the Balance, is Y vowel and takes the value of 70 which is N which is a Gate and Eye and Death. For this Gate is the Gate to the Understanding or Binah, and this Eye is the Eye of Shiva. The passing through the Gate N or the opening of the Eye of Shiva, destroys the Universe. This necessary step is not as dire as it would seem. To perceive the Universe without Error—and this is the meaning of the "Eye of Shiva" or its Opening—requires that the Initiate Cease. This Universe (of the 6), being a Mirror or a Looking Glass, reflects the Image of that which envelops the Eye, and is False unless what looks is No Longer, is Dead, or in this Life, Empty of Light.* Otherwise, All that is Seen is one’s own Reflection. And this path is beyond the Supernals, and IT is the Balanced L which is the key to the Gate that is N.*
