As you can see, the name of this card in French is Le*soleil. The little* is a rhombus. As I have recently explained, the rhombus is a central element of the code. Each time it appears in the name of a card, it signifies that the term preceding it must be doubled and added or substracted to the term following it. Let’s start with the first cipher (ACEHILMOPRTVX). I always put in bold characters the letters who belong to this first cipher. And, as we did for Le*mat, we are going to work with the rhombus (*). Each time, we will be looking for 19, XIX, the numeral that appears on top of the card.
Le* soleil: (12+5) x 2: 34. 15+12+5+9+12: 53. 53-34= 19.
With the second cipher (BDFNSU) now. Only the letter S applies here. The rhombus effect is not … effective here as the letter S is after it, not before.
Le* soleil: 19 !
Now… What do we do with the Bar Code ? This Bar Code is supposed to help us solve the equation. When it is present with no apparent use, as is the case here and with VI-Lamovrevx, it means … something else. With VI-Lamovrevx, it meant 666. Let’s decode this one:
IIIIIIIIIIILe*soleilIIIIII. The easy way first:
IIIIIIIIIIII IIIIII. 12 bars + 6 bars= 18… What’s in a 18 ? … 3 x 6, 666 ! Another 666, the Number of the Beast in The Book of Apocalypse.
The hard way now, with the first cipher:
IIIIIIIIIIILe*soleilIIIIII: (12+12+5) x 2= 58. 15+12+5+9+12+6= 59. 59- 58= 1 ?
With the second cipher:
IIIIIIIIIIII * s IIIIII: (12) x 2= 24. 19+6= 25. 25- 24= 1 ?
In both cases, the result is 1 and 1 is not 19. Or is it ?
19. 1+9= 10. 1+0= 1 !
This solution puts the number 1 in a special perspective for us. In the Grand Wheel of Tarot, 1 and 19 are a pair, the two opposite poles of the same axis. Also, for 12th century theological reasons, neoplatonic reasons, the concept of One refers to the Deity and Light. 1 is well placed here, in The Sun.
There is another solution with the Bar Code that gives us 109, or 19. I just can’t seem to remenber it at this time. Sorry!
