Attributions of Strength

Correct design of Strength

A smiling woman holds the open jaws of a fierce and powerful lion. This also represents the mastery of the lower by the higher. But in this case it is the soul which holds in check the passions, although her feet are still planted on earth, and the dark veil still floats about her head and clings around her.

Letter Teth – T

Teth: The Act of Power. She who rules the Secret Force of the Universe

Liber 777

Teth is a Serpent, as is very obvious from the shape of the letter. The symbol of Leo also resembles the Uraeus. It being the house of the Sun, the idea is to emphasize the identity of the Star and the Snake.

Zodiac Sign

Leo

Leo is the fifth sign of the Zodiac ruled by the Sun. It is  a Fixed Fire Sign. Predictions: Leo rules from July 23 – August 22 and all Sundays.

Path of Wisdom

The Nineteenth Path is the Intelligence of Secrets and of all the activities of the spiritual beings, and is so called because of the affluence diffused by it from the most high blessing and most exalted sublime glory.
