This piece, first of all, demonstrates that the first full moon, of the first month of the Hebrew calendar, establishes the average of full moons there are in a year.
The Hebrew word “HaPesach”, seen inside the full moon to the right in the art piece, is the first full moon of the first month. The numerical value of “HaPesach” is 153.
The lunar calendar is based on cycles of the moon’s lunar phases, consisting of 354.37 days. The solar calendar, based on the position of the earth during its revolution around the sun, consists of 365.24 days.
Together they average 360 days
There are either 12 OR 13 full moons within this time frame for an average of 12.369 full moons in a year.
The Gregorian calendar, that most of the world uses, is based on the sun. Using the Gregorian calendar, a leap year with an extra day is added to keep everything in sync. The Hebrew calendar is based on both the sun and the moon. The sun determines the years, and the moon determines the month.
On the Hebrew calendar, an entire month is added 7 times over a 19 yr period, and by this calendar, the first full moon of the religious year is the moon of Passover. As mentioned above, the Hebrew word for “the Passover” is “HaPesach”, which has a numerical value of 153. The square root of 153 is 12.369, the average number of full moons there are in a year.
The word “Tree”, in Hebrew, is the Divine proportion
The Divine proportion is 1.618.
Tree in hebrew is spelled with the 16th letter “Ayin” meaning eyes, and the 18th letter “Tzadik”, meaning righteous. The word Aytz (tree) is 16th and 18th letters, sitting together next to each other: 1618
Looking at this word’s letters, being the 16th and 18th letters, the 17th letter is notably missing between them. This is the letter Pey. Pey is the mouth, and means to speak. It is literally the vehicle of creation.
Is it a coincidence that the 17th letter of the Hebrew alphabet is a mouth? There are 17 muscles in the tongue you speak with, and it takes 17 muscles in your face to smile.
The letter Pey also begins the word Pri, meaning fruit.
Fruit comes from a tree, right?
The word pri or fruit is the word going horizontal, to the right in this piece. Again, “Aytz” (tree) is 1618, the divine proportion.
Pri which means fruit, is spelled with the 17th letter (Pey) having a numerical value of 80. Next is the 20th letter Reysh, having a numerical value of 200, and lastly the 10th letter, Yud, having a numerical value of 10.
Its cardinal (physical) value which is based on the numerical value of that particular letter, is 290.
Its ordinal (spiritual) value which is based on letter placement is 47. 17+20+10=47.
If you square root 47 three times you get 1.618 (the divine proportion), but both are applicable:
(17) Pey (80),
(20) Reysh (200)
+(10) Yud +(10)
290/47 = 6.17
Looking at the relationship between the words, “tree” and “fruit” in the Hebrew language, we see that between the physical and the spiritual, life operates via the divine proportion.
