Circle Dance

Celtic Awen. Awen is a feminine noun and a Celtic symbol of unified expression corresponding to the 3 expressive aspects of the Hebrew letter Hei. These 3 aspects of unified expression intercalate 3 expressive aspects of the soul's divine service as bard (psalmist), ovate (prophet) and druid (lawgiver, one's soulspark of Moshe). Blue symbolizes the Shechinah. The segol trope (3 dots) carries and brings down the light of Atzilut.

The Holy One makes a circle dance ... Yeshayahu 25:9
In the messianic era, man will receive his light and bounty from the infinite source of consciousness via the agency of woman. R. Shneur Zalman of Liadi, Tefilat LeKhal HaShana

I believe that R. Shneur Zalman is referring to the mytical unity of Yesod (Siyuma Degufa - Lingam) with Malchut (feminine divinity - Peh, referring to the "lower mouth" - Yoni). Of course, it's highly likely that I'm wrong.
Happy Samhain!

You could be right about that. I haven't actually read the work.

Thanks (about Samhain)!
