- Waite, The Pictorial Key...
This is one of the rare instances where Waite explicitly provides the Qabalistic correspondence. Even Case, who embraced the idea of diseminating the knowledge of the Tarot, didn’t even include that correspondence.
Lunar attributes always come in threes. This is most clearly presented in the diadem worn in Waite’s version. The waning, full, and waxing moons represent the triple Goddess Artemis-Selene-Hecate/Diana-Luna-Trivia. This is described in Thelemic texts as the “triple cord of silver.”
This trinity is represented on the Tree of Life through the Path of Gimel, the Sphere of Yesod, and the trump The Moon. Artemis/Diana symbolizes the influence from Kether descending into Tiphareth. Selene/Luna is the full moon/womb of the Mother, (Yesod). Hecate/Trivia is the “crone”, or post-menopausal woman, (the Moon card).
