I finished my first index and it helped me to notice a lacuna in my discussion of the planets. I haven’t given Mars much attention at all and that is quite an oversight. Let me start rectifying that now with this little post.
John Michael Greer notes that the mathematical operations that you use to generate a geomantic shield chart constrains the number of figures that can occupy the 15th position of the chart, the Judge. If you are in an astrological or Kabbalistic mood, you’ll notice that of all the planets with sefirotic associations have at least one sign that can play the Judge, except Mars-Geburah. Neither Puer nor Rubeus can ever appear there.
