Daily Zohar # 2829 – Ki Tetze – He was ruddy, with beautiful eyes
Zohar Ki Tetze
Malchut is prisoned in her exile. The minister of the other-side, Sam-el nests among the stars to have Malchut under his control. His power will be removed in the future as the prophet Obadiah tells us.
“אִם תַּגְבִּיהַּ כַּנֶּשֶׁר וְאִם בֵּין כּוֹכָבִים שִׂים קִנֶּךָ מִשָּׁם אוֹרִידְךָ נְאֻם יְהוָה”
“Though you soar like the eagle and make your nest among the stars, from there I will bring you down,” declares YHVH.”
The name for planet Mars, ‘מאדים’, comes from the word ‘אודם’, ‘red’. The Shechina is white fire. Netzach and Hod have the white from Chessed and the red from Gevurah. Aaron, the high priest, connected to the aspect of mercy from Chessed and King David to judgments from Left column, Gevurah. It was said on king David (1 Samuel 16:12) that “he was ruddy, with beautiful eyes and a handsome appearance.”
Moses and Aaron, Netzach and Hod were true prophets. The face of Moses was shining with prophecy from Binah that is the supernal energy of the Sun.
Planets, colors and sefirot on the Tree of Life is significant and define the light that can be revealed from the specific vessel/sefira. The seven major planets have great influence on the world of Malchut. Each have special characteristics and in combination with the four elements of Fire, Wind, Water and Earth affect every aspect of life in Malchut.
By studying all these aspects we can tell a lot about the energy of the subject.
