Columns from Liber 777:
  • XV—"The King Scale of Colour (י)"
  • XVI—"The Queen Scale of Colour (ה)"
  • XVII—"The Emperor Scale of Colour (ו)"
  • XVIII—"The Empress Scale of Colour (ה)"
  • CXI—"Sephirotic Colours (Dr. Jellinek)"

Within the western magical tradition, the Tree of Life is used as a kind of conceptual filing cabinet within the larger system of the Qabalah, the use of which was central to the mystical teachings of Aleister Crowley. Each sephera ("Emination") and path is assigned various ideas, such as astrological planets and signs, cards of the Tarot, and the classical elements. Many of these correspondances were gathered together in Crowley's book Liber 777, which is used for these listings.
