Spiritual and Magical Powers of the Four Aces in Liber 777
The Four Aces in Liber 777 have many attributions, but surprisingly they do not have divinatory meanings! The Aces relate to Kether, the Crown in the Supernal Triangle.
Path 1 is the place of the four Aces, the sphere of the Primum Mobile and the sephirah Kether or Crown.
The Four aces revolve around the Pole Star and rule each of the four quadrants around it. The occult Meridian passes through the Great Pyramid. The Four aces represent the point on the top of Yod in YHVH, attributed to Spirit or Akasha.

Golden Dawn descriptions of the Aces
Ace of Wands
A white radiating angelic Hand issuing from Clouds and grasping a heavy Club which has three branches in the colours and with the Sigils of the Scales. The right and left hand branches end respectively in three Flames and the centre one in four Flames, thus yielding Ten the number of the Sephiroth. Two and Twenty leaping Flames or Yods surround it, answering to the Paths of these. Three fall below the right branch for Aleph Mem and Shin. Seven above the central branch for the double letters. And between it and that on the right, twelve – six above and six below – about the left hand Branch. The whole is a great and Flaming Torch.
It symbolises Force, Strength, rush, vigour, energy, and it governs according to its nature various works and questions. It implies natural as opposed to Invoked Force.
Ace of Cups
A Radiant white Angelic Hand issuing from clouds and supporting on the palm thereof a cup, resembling that of the Stolistes. From it rises a fountain of clear and glistening water; and spray falling on all sides into clear calm water below, in which grow Lotus and water lilies.
The great letter Heh of the Supernal Mother is traced in the spray of the Fountain.
lt symbolises Fertility, Productiveness, Beauty, Pleasure, Happiness, etc.
Ace of Swords
A white radiating Angelic Hand, issuing from clouds, and grasping the hilt of a Sword, which supports a white radiant celestial Crown from which depend, on the right, the olive branch of Peace, and on the left, the Palm branch of suffering. Six Vaus fall from its point. lt symbolises invoked as contrasted with natural Force; for it is the invocation of the Sword. Raised upward, it invokes the Divine Crown of Spiritual Brightness. But reversed it is the invocation of demoniac force, and becomes a fearfully evil symbol. It represents therefore very great power for good or evil, but invoked. And it also represents whirling force, and strength through trouble. It is the affirmation of justice, upholding Divine authority; and it may become the Sword of wrath, Punishment and Affliction.
Ace of Disks
A white radiant Angelic Hand, holding a branch of a rose Tree, whereon is a large Pentacle, formed of five concentric circles.
The innermost Circle is white, charged with a red Greek cross, From this white centre l2 rays, also white, issue. These terminate at the circumference, making the whole something like an astrological figure of the Heavens.
It is surmounted by a small circle, above which is a large Maltese Cross, and with two white wings; four roses and two buds are shewn. The hand issueth from the clouds as in the other three cases. It representeth materiality in all senses, good and evil, and is therefore in a sense illusionary. It shows material gain, labour, power, wealth, etc.

Divine Name of Kether in Assiah
AHYH 21, HVA 16
Pure existence, belongs to I. The sound of the word represents the indrawn and outdrawn breath.
MTTRVN – Metatron 314, 964
Kether of Assiah
RAShYTh HGLGLYM 1032, 1592
Sphere of the Primum Mobile — “beginning of whirling motion” — tells us that Kether is the point from which we measure motion. The Sephiroth might even perhaps be considered as co-ordinate axes.
Element (with Planetary Ruler)
Root of Air
Kether is said to be the root of Air, because of the force of Air, or the balance of Fire and Water, and, as connected, it is Aleph, with the ideas of Zero and Unity.
