Understanding the Complete Framework
Before we describe the movement of the
through the 22 Oracles, it is important to understand how the framework
is laid out and how the energy of any house
is affected by the planetary ruler (based on its row) and the chakra
with its astrological sign and chakra
ruler (based on the column).
When looking at the planetary ruler for any row, remember that
when reading for the rising
chart, use the planetary ruler on the right of its row, and
for the moon
chart use the planetary ruler on the left. Please see
the Planetary Pairs for a description
of the relationship between the planetary ruler for any row.
When looking at the chakra
ruler for any column, remember that the signs along the top
and bottom will designate which planet rules in that sign (see Cosmic
Layers). The 1st chakra being ruled by ,
the 2nd chakra by ,
etc. As has been stated,
by day and
by night. This is denoted by the shading applied to the signs
along the bottom and the top. Over time, the outer planets
of Uranus, Neptune and Pluto became visible to our 3D reality, so
by day and
by night. See the Astrology
reference page for a description of the symbols used here.
Let's use an example to clarify this. Since the diagram on
the left represents the sun
chart, any house
in the framework will describe the pure
potential available for the card assigned to that house.
When reading any Card in the sun
chart, both the Rising and Moon energies are combined for that
For instance, when reading the rising energy for the
in the sun chart,
we see that the planetary ruler is and
it rules in
in the 1st chakra (which is governed also by ).
This represents a person who has command over any limitation that
may be imposed upon them. Having the rising energy rule in
the night sign of
means that they will be gifted with an intuitive ability to understand
the workings of constraint. At the same time, given that the
rising energy is working in the night, that person will likely have
to obtain these gifts through their own merit, proving to themselves
that they are worthy of such powers. Based on their own ability
to differentiate discernment from judgment, will be the allowance
they offer themselves in realizing their own opportunity.
In combination with this, reading the Moon energy for
in the sun chart
we have ruling
in the 1st chakra, which is governed by .

Following the Ace of Spades
Now that we have defined the manner in which the quadrations can
be formed to manifest the unique 22 combinations, let's see how
the individual card houses
can become a reflection of this new set of structures. By
through the various Oracles, and noting the house
in the framework that it resides in both the rising
chart and moon
chart, we can now designate that house
in the sun chart
to the Oracle for that year.
That means that for year 0 (at the time of birth), the combination
of the sun chart,
chart is represented by the Tarot Arcana 0, 'The Fool'.
If you look at the house
is in for the rising
chart of year 0, that house
is assigned The Fool as its archetypal outward--or rising--energy.
Look in the diagram above and notice that for year 0 the
represents the Fool in the rising
chart and the
represents the Fool in the moon
chart (see the Karmic Wheel).
By extending this, and following the
through the first 22 quadrations, the house
where it falls in each successive year indicates the house
in the framework to assign to that Oracle.
From this it will be seen that for the first 22 years--taking into
account both the moon
chart and rising
will have experienced 44 of the 45 available houses
in the framework. The only house
that will not have been experienced is the birth house
(that which they own in the sun
chart), which will be entered at age 44. This will hold
true for all members of the Karmic Wheel. For the fixed
state cards, they will have experienced 44 of the 45 available
combinations of card energies transiting through the houses
surrounding their house.
On the 22nd birthday, the rising and moon charts will crisscross
on the Karmic Wheel, and for the second set of 22 Oracles the
will walk the path in reverse, experiencing the Moon energy from
the standpoint of the outward Rising position and vice-versa.
Remember, these statements are symbolic in nature. It
is important for any card reader to become attuned to their intuitive
powers in order to make effective use of this system.

signifies the seed of humanity, the archetypal emergence onto the
material plane. It is the doorway both to and from the Spirit
realm. It is no wonder that it is the symbol chosen
by the Order of the Magi to represent their organization.
You will only be able to understand the role of the
through use of your intuitive powers. When looking at Life
from the standpoint of time, the totality of humanity is represented
as 1 point in time. As the time unfolds, humanity evolves,
and that point within time moves and describes a path.
But from the standpoint of time itself, the movement of that point--or
all of its points in totality--makes up the true picture of humanity.
The points are not linear, one following another, but are taken
as a whole. If we accept that as a given, then the concept
of past and present takes on a different meaning. In essence,
there is a reflection of the Future, through the Now, from the Past.
It is like a sine wave, repeating exactly the same vibratory rate
present in the Past, the Now and the Future, only working upon life
through different circumstances. In this way, by anchoring
to our pure potential (the sun
chart) and atoning for the Past (the moon
chart) we will automatically harmonize the Future (the rising
The phenomena of the
should be analyzed in and of itself, without regard to the framework,
or even any of the other cards. This will be left as an exercise
to be accomplished individually, but let's use an analogy to give
a few hints about the function of this card. When we emerge
onto the earth plane, we do so through the gateway of the .
At any moment in time, circumstances present at that moment are
unique. When we are still young, we can see the gateway clearly
and there is an undeniable connection to the Spirit realm.
Over time, however, the moment
of birth slowly disappears into a myriad of memories generated
by our momentary choices.
At the end of life, the natural hope would be that we find the
gateway that we entered through at birth in order to return to our
True place within Spirit. However, having lost the memory
of our moment
of birth, fear that the gateway will thus not be found leaves
us with a feeling of dread. That feeling permeates our waking
life, often overshadowing our ability to look within to reconnect
with the innocent nature of our youth. This becomes a fear
that now gets associated with the
(and for spades in general). The good news is, when leaving
this lifetime, we exit through the gateway of the ,
and the Spirit realm will look the same no matter what moment is
chosen for the time of death. We do not need to fear death
since all doors lead to the same place.
The Spirit realm can be loosely associated with the picture that
all of humanity represents from the standpoint of time. That
picture remains the same regardless of any point that may be seen
as a part of it. In other words, it matters not what point
we choose to leave this realm; all points return to exactly the
When we take the time to look within in order to release judgment
and allow our youthful nature to permeate our thinking, access to
The Gateway becomes available. This, then, is the first step
