40 Small Cards

40 Small Cards
 
 
The small cards are distributed orderly among the Sephiroth: Aces for Kether, twos for Chokmah, etc. The court cards are placed more specificly: Kings/Knights to Chokmah, Queens to Binah, Princes to Tiphereth and Princesses to Malkuth. The magical society The Golden Dawn associated the sephirotic small cards 2-10 in terms of the decans of the Zodiac, 36 sections of 10 degrees each. Each of the twelve houses has three decans, and each decan is a Minor card of the Tarot. To each minor card is attributed a pair of angels one of which rules the day and the other the night. Both the angels and the cards are reflecting the worlds above and illustrating that below (Wang;47-49). The small cards and their angels can be involved in pathworking or rituals regarding the individual Sephiroth.
