Tarot Arcanum 15: Passion

The Fifteenth Arcanum is the pluralized “I,” which esoterically is called Satan.

The Fifteenth Arcanum represents passion, which is based in the Luciferic fire. It is necessary to know that the principal defect is sexual passion, lust.

In the Kabbalistic synthesis of the Fifteenth Arcanum, we have, 1 + 5 = 6, the 6 in itself is sex. This signifies that in sex is the major force that can liberate the human being, but also the major force that can enslave him.

The Fifteenth Arcanum signifies the work with the demon. It is the process of the dissolution of the “I.” Eden is sex; the internal beast, the psychological “I” obstructs our way towards Eden; it is at the door of sex, in order to invite us to the ejaculation of the seminal liquor, or in order to deviate us from that door by showing us schools, theories, sects, etc.

Hebrew Letter: Samech ס

Timetable: Sixth Hour of Apollonius: “Here it is necessary to remain quiet, still, due to fear (this signifies the terrible ordeal of the Guardian of the Threshold, before whom a lot of courage is needed in order to overcome him).”
