Peh is the path connecting
Hod, the sephirah of human mind-forms,
with Netzach, the sephirah of polarized
energy. As the first path within the Astral Triangle it is the

Peh means 'mouth', the personality understood as the
soul's means of concentrated expression on the lower astral planes.
The personality is a product of Hod and
Netzach: The light of Tiphareth is
split up into the many-rayed manifestation of Netzach and this
division is confirmed by the analytical mental capacity of Hod: The ego is constructed.
While the light of
the soul passes into the personality via this symbolic mouth,
speech passes out of it. The activity constituting the ego-personality-mouth
is the use of language,
the splitting up of creation into comprehensible pieces. But
speech can be monologue or dialogue, condemnation or communication,
a means of isolation or understanding, a barrier or a bridge.
It depends on the
degree of mutual
fruitation between the
mental concentration of Hod and the collective
inspiration of Netzach. Consider
for a moment the openness of your Solar Plexus chakra. In tarot, the problem is illustrated
by the trump of The Tower, referring of course to the tower of
Babel from Genesis where all communication eventually broke down,
but also to the ego-personality which may become a fortress against inspiration from our fellow
Only when Hod
and Netzach are in perfect sync, the light of Tiphareth will shine
into the personality and illuminate our earthly relations, the
ego becomes a vehicle for the word of spirit, the tower becomes
a house of God, and there is
a balance between internal
and external impulses.
