1,10,100 - A doggy tale


In renaisannce art the lamp was used as an emlem of Diogenes the Cynic, nicknamed 'The Dog'. If we associate the Hermit with Diogenes 'the dog' then we have a tryptich of dog cards:

The Lunatic - aleph = 1
The Hermit - yod = 10
The Moon - qoph = 100

Dogma?


If you're using the Golden Dawn's model of the
Tree of Life, beginning with The Fool, you'd go:

Pillar of Mercy

Kether to Chokmah THE FOOL
Chokmah to Chesed THE HIEROPHANT
Chesed to Netzach THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE
Netzach to Malkuth THE MOON

How might V The Hierophant fit into your equation?

I see I forgot about The Hermit... this was because
the dog(s) on The Wheel of Fortune distracted me.
As there is no dog on The Hermit, what about this?

The letter Aleph is also attributed to the constellation Orion, hunter of the Bull [taurus] and Hare [Lupus], lover of the moon goddess Artemis/Diana, accompanied by hunting dogs [canis major and minor]. In the Book of Job and Amos the Hebrew word Kesil [KSYL] is used for the constellation Orion. Kesil [KSYL] also means Fool.

KSYL Orion, Fool

Job 9:9 - Which maketh Arcturus, Orion, and Pleiades, and the chambers of the south.

Job 38:31 - canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?

Am 5:8 - Seek him that maketh the seven stars and Orion, and turneth the shadow of death into the morning, and maketh the day dark with night: that calleth for the waters of the sea, and poureth them out upon the face of the earth: The LORD is his name

The word KSYL Orion also means fool, stupid fellow, dullard, simpleton, arrogant one. And is used 70 times elsewhere in the bible [psalms, proverbs and ecclesiastes] to mean such:

KJV (70) - fool, 61; foolish, 9;
NAS (70) - fool, 35; fool's, 2; foolish, 6; foolish man's, 1; fools, 23; stupid, 1; stupid man, 1; stupid ones, 1;

KJV = King James Version
NAS = New American Standard

According to some the 'dog' on the fool card is not a dog but a hare, this too would fit in with the identification of the 'fool' with the constellation Orion, which is pictured with a hare at its feet, representing the constellation lepus. If it is a hare then we can still consider the dog present, if off picture, as we know the hare is running from Orion's hunting dog canis major, Sirius.
