With the Crowley-Harris Book of Thoth, our Hierophant ( ♉=5 ) holds a Key: Borromean Rings. Affiliated with Tarot for over 500 years, these Rings are also a hyperbolic link complementing 2 octahedron 'glued' together in 4-dimensions (3-space): http://books.google.com/books?id=NyU...ahedra&f=false

Curiously, the same hyperbolic manifold is also described by the Whitehead Link (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Whitehead_link), a circle embedded in our space by mapping the sequence of Planets from Tree to Tarot.
Using the Star of David as a configuration to mark the 6 'directions' of a sphere...
