Parshat Vayetzi - "Birth of a Nation"

#‎Vayetzei‬ - "Birth of a Nation"

The Parsha this week tells the birth-story of 11 out of 12 of the Tribal Patriarchs, laying the foundation for understanding the Cycle of Sacred Time which is the Jewish Year, as reflected by Jewish Astrology.

The order in which sons of Jacob were born, the spiritual identities of the four mothers who birthed them, and their unique Tribal functions, both outwardly in physical reality as well as inwardly in the realm of symbols and archetypes operating within the individual personality, all have their seeds in this week's Torah portion.

The 12 Tribes correspond to the 12 constellations. This week it's "Birth of a Nation." Later on in Parshat BaMidbar, the appointed directions and functions of the now-mature Tribes are described in exact detail.

"As Above - So Below." The 12 Tribes around the Mishkan (Tabernacle) is the reflection of the heavenly arrangement. Recreated in exact detail each of the 42 times they encamped in the desert, as if to indelibly stamp this power-configuration into our very DNA, this arrangement is the sacred mandala of the Israelites.
