The Inner Zodiac:

The sincere practitioner of the Divination Arts must realize that the adepts of the ancient world taught that a men are their own priests and women their own priestess. A study of ancient Hermetic metascience makes this fact abundantly clear. A study of the Alchemical Process, for example, reveals to the student just how important the "Individuation Process" was to the adepts of old. (We refer the reader to the works of Carl Gustav Jung, Erich Neumann, and Edward Edinger for more information on the true meaning of Alchemy.) The ancient elders emphasized independent moral and spiritual development. The job of the mystery school adepts, and the purpose of the Hermetic Arts, was to lead men to psychic wholeness. The adepts knew that the fragmented mind and virtueless heart can not hope to initiate or sustain a healthy relationship with other human beings or with the world. On the contrary, such an individual will be a danger to himself and to everyone he encounters.

“When two plus two equal one,” wrote the Pythagoreans, then will the Christ take birth within. Now, interestingly, the first card of the Tarot's Major Arcana, entitled The Magician, happens to depict a Hermetic adept or initiator in the very process of uniting Fourness into Oneness. The Four are represented by a Wand, a Cup, a Sword, and a Disk, which sit upon his strange three-legged table. These objects represent the four elements (Fire, Water, Air, and Earth), the four suits of the Tarot, and the four modalities of consciousness (Intellect, Emotion, Sensation, and Intuition). They also represent the four sister Divination disciplines which also require unification. In fact, we may wonder how consciousness could possibly experience unity if the tools for the job are not first unified.
