Tarot Arcanum 22: The Return

The Twenty-second Arcanum is the Crown of Life, the return to Light, the incarnation of the Truth within us.

The Kabbalistic synthesis of the Twenty-second Arcanum is, 2 + 2 = 4: man, woman, fire, and water. It is יהוה [Iod Hei Vav Hei]: man, woman, phallus, uterus. Behold here the holy and mysterious Tetragrammaton, the Holy Four.

Hebrew Letter: Tav ת

Timetable: “There is a thirteenth hour; this is the hour of liberation.” 

Transcendental Axiom: “The sun ariseth and the sun goeth down and it hasteth to its place where it was born.” 

Forecasting Element: Predicts longevity, inheritances, notability, delight of honest enjoyments, rivals that dispute the affections, friends that care for us, obstacles and aptitude in order to defeat them, uncertain situations and contingencies that clarify them.
