Description

The Salt-headed Wand is the scepter of the Third Adept in the Portal Hall (The Second Degree). The Third Adept in this particular ceremony represents the feminine qualities of moisture and receptivity. Of the Three Alchemic essentials, salt is the physical vehicle of manifestation for the other two. Sulfur characterizes each thing in a particular way—mercury gives animation—but salt provides the matrix. Salt is the receptive body, the material substance. The symbol of salt on the Tree of Life embraces all the Sephiroth except Malkuth, and is as it were, the Reconciler between sulfur and mercury. The horizontal dividing line in the symbol implies the precept of Hermes, “as above so below.”
