Daily Zohar 3866
109. בֹּא וּרְאֵה, מַה הוּא סוֹד הַקָּרְבָּנוֹת לְהַקְרִיב שָׂעִיר (כְּנֶגֶד שָׂעִיר) וְלֹא דָבָר אַחֵר? וּמַדּוּעַ שָׂעִיר בְּרֹאשׁ חֹדֶשׁ, וְכָאן גַּם כֵּן שָׂעִיר? אֶלָּא, אִם תֹּאמַר מִשּׁוּם שֶׁהוּא צַד שֶׁלּוֹ – טוֹב. מַדּוּעַ לֹא הָיָה עֵז?
110. אֶלָּא דָּבָר זֶה צָרִיךְ, וְהוּא נִמְצָא לְבַעֲלֵי כִשּׁוּפִים, שֶׁכָּל מַעֲשֵׂיהֶם בְּמַה שֶּׁלֹּא (מִתְחַבֵּר) יִהְיֶה בִנְקֵבָה. וְעַל זֶה שָׂעִיר, שֶׁלֹּא הִתְחַבֵּר בִּנְקֵבָה בְּכָל הַצְּדָדִים שֶׁלּוֹ. עֵז, כַּאֲשֶׁר הִתְחַבֵּר בִּנְקֵבָה. וּמִשּׁוּם שֶׁהוּא מֶלֶךְ, נוֹתְנִים לוֹ מִשּׁוּם הַכָּבוֹד שֶׁלּוֹ, זֶה שֶׁלֹּא הִתְחַבֵּר בִּנְקֵבָה וְלֹא נָתַן כֹּחוֹ לְאַחֵר. וְזֶה יָדוּעַ לְאוֹתָם הַמְכַשְּׁפִים שֶׁמִּשְׁתַּמְּשִׁים בְּמַעֲשִׂים אֵלֶּה. וּמִפְּנֵי כָּךְ שׁוֹרִים עַל הַשָּׂעִיר הַהוּא כָּל אוֹתָם הַחֲטָאִים.

“וַתֹּאמֶר אֶסְתֵּר אִישׁ צַר וְאוֹיֵב הָמָן הָרָע הַזֶּה וְהָמָן נִבְעַת מִלִּפְנֵי הַמֶּלֶךְ וְהַמַּלְכָּה.”
“And Esther said, “The adversary and enemy is this wicked Haman!” So Haman was terrified before the king and queen.”
When Haman, who is on the other side, becomes terrified before the king and queen, Light and joy are revealed, and Israel goes out to freedom on that day, that is Yom Kippur. Then the other nations wish to join Israel with this joy. As Israel gives a gift of the scapegoat to the other side to stay away from them, they provide a share of their joy to the other nations to keep them away on their lower level.
The Zohar asks, what is the secret of offering a male goat, not other animal offerings, and why a male goat is selected for sacrifice on Yom Kippur and Rosh Chodesh. Is it because of its pleasing look? And why not a female goat that is larger than the smaller male goat?
The Zohar answers that a male goat is needed for this purpose. It is known to those who are doing witchcraft that a male goat that didn’t yet mate with a female is on the other-side because other gods are not fruitful. Therefore, a female goat is fruitful and can not be used by the other side.
The other side is called ‘King,’ but he is old and foolish. He is honored with a male goat that did not connect to a female, meaning he didn’t give his power to another of his kind.
Sorcerers use a male goat to carry their black magics and sins. On Yom Kippur, the male goat becomes a scapegoat that takes all the sins of Israel to the other-side.
Why a male goat that didn’t mate with a female strong for the other-side?
The god of the other side is not fruitful because fruitfulness is from Hashem. The Sat-n worshipers use the male goat image with a female breast because they cannot be fruitful. They draw their powers from this world. Everything that has a continuation is under the control and protection of Hashem, and they can’t get energy from it.
As we come closer to the Final Redemption, the other side gets stronger by pushing the world to sin and increasing the power on their side. That would give them the power to dominate the world. Most evil leaders are not ‘fruitful.’ Many of them are childless and or without the ability to have children. Some have adopted children to create the illusion that they are on the good side, but they are not. They are happy to kill children that represent life and continuation. They draw the energy of life from the death of children as Pharaoh did. They have a forked tongue like the Snake and say the opposite of what they mean or do.
The aspect of continuation is life and the aspect of connection to Hashem. When we study Torah and Zohar, we continue the life force from the upper levels to the lower world. Sharing and giving Tzedakah creates a continuation from our energy to others and produces Light and life force.
To break the hold of the other side, we need to be united with the power of Light and make fruitful actions of continuation. When it is related to having children, the man is responsible for being fruitful, not the woman. If a woman gets married and intentionally avoids having children, it is considered her sin. The first precept of the Torah is “Be Fruitful” to tell us that this is the key to connecting to the Light.
