The Zodiac

16" x 16"


The 4-letter Divine name, known as the Tetragramaton, or in Hebrew, Shem Havaya, (the Name of ultimate Being and becoming), has 12 different letter combinations. The mystics understood that each month of the year receives Divine influence of character and blessing through the 12 ways of forming these holy letters.


Rabbi Zvi Elimelech, known as the B'nei Yissachar wrote a lot about the subject. Each letter combination is based on a a verse where the letter combination associated to that month is an abbreviation within a given verse. For instance, the first month of Jewish year, Nissan is associated with the regular letter combination of The holy Name, Yud, Heh, Vav, Heh, and is based on a verse from Psalms, Yismachu Hashamayim V'tagel Ha'aretz, May the heavens rejoice and the earth be glad." 

The Name combinations move clockwise From Nissan at the top to the last month, Adar. The letter combinations also move clockwise in each inner circle according to the months of the year. There are a total of 144 letter combinations of the Divine 4-letter Name.
