Paul Foster Care sometimes quotes Judges 5:20, They fought from heaven; the stars in their courses fought against Sisera, as an example of Astrological wisdom in the Old Testament/Torah.
In his Gematria notebook, you can read that the word Sisera comes from Hardsheth. Hardsheth means the enchanters. The root is HVSh, meaning to engrave, to cut, to plough, to shine, to grow, to whisper or mutter (compare this with Isaiah 8:18, Wizards that peep and mutter), to be soft or viscous, like clay, loam, a forest, deaf, a worker in brass, a cutting tool. All these meanings relate to Venus and to Taurus. Sisera is typical of inharmonious desires.
Sisera means literally battle order (your desires constitute your inner battle field).
“The stars in their courses” is mazloth, the zodiac assigned to Chokmah. How does mazloth defeat inharmonious desires? Mazloth rules the movements of the outer universe, hence karma. It is karma that teaches us during the early stages of evolution and refines and unifies our desires.
Sisera was vanquished by Baraq, the leader of Israel. He won because he had help from the prophetess Deborah. Deborah tells Baraq that the Lord God had commanded him to muster troops of Naphtali (Virgo) and Zebulun (Capricorn) and concentrate them upon Mount Tabor (literally mount = Hermit). Baraq declines to descend to battle without the prophetess. Deborah consents, but declares that the glory of the victory shall belong to a woman. As soon as the news of the rebellion reaches Sisera he collects nine hundred chariots of iron (Mars) and a host of people. According to Judges 4:14, Deborah says, “Go! This is the day Yehovah (Chokmah) has given Sisera into your hands. Has not the Lord gone ahead of you?” Baraq went down from Mount Tabor with ten thousand men (ten to the power of four). As Deborah prophesied, Baraq defeats Sisera.
Mind that Baraq means ‘lightning flash’ – the women (negative desires) is kicked out of the tower.
Mind that Baraq first ascended and then descended (from earth to heaven and back to earth and received the powers of the inferiors and superiors – The Emerald Tablet).
Sisera escapes on foot (Pisces – understanding), while his army is pursued and destroyed. He runs into the tent of Jael, wife of Heber (HBR), the Kenite.
Paul Foster Case on HBR, habar: to divide, to cut apart, divide out; that which cuts; to pronounce, enunciate. HBR is the root of a noun which designates an astrologer, one who divides the heavens (and anticipates karma). The basic idea is that of the subdivision of space, and it is allied in meaning to what is suggested by GDL and SVP.
HBR is part of the Gematria of 207, like AYN SVP (limitless), AVR (light), GDR (a wall, a. Boundary), and RZ (mystery).
The Kenites were coppersmiths and metal-workers (Alchemy). Kenite, QYNY, is probably derived from Cain, QYN – Abel’s brother.
Jael is the Hebrew name for the Nubian ibex, a desert goat. That’s Tarot card 15, Capricorn, Oyin, the eye, and the renewing intelligence.
Jael allowed Sisera rest in her tent. She gave him milk to drink and Sisera fell asleep. When asleep, she hammered a tent peg (Samekh, Key 14) through his temples (governed by Aries).
Excerpt from the Song of Deborah:
“Extolled above women be Jael,
Extolled above women in the tent.
He asked for water, she gave him milk;
She brought him cream in a lordly dish.
She stretched forth her hand to the nail,
Her right hand to the workman’s hammer,
And she smote Sisa; she crushed his head,
She crashed through and transfixed his temples.”
Wikipedia: Scholars have long recognized that the Song of Deborah, on the basis of linguistic evidence (archaic biblical Hebrew), is one of the oldest parts of the Bible, dating back to the 12th century BC.
