Are All Gods the Same?
The theory of correspondences is one of the oldest and essential laws of Magic. It is easy to understand; everything in the universe is linked, and several clues give us the ability to reveal this hidden web. A yellow flower is linked to the Sun, the milk to the Moon, and so on.
The elaboration of these complex relationships has an unexpected consequence in the realm of the Gods and Goddesses.
As everything is linked, the idea of equivalence progressively appeared. Magical Qabalah was the perfect playground for this. Several authors began to list symbols, plants, stones, perfumes associating everything to the sephiroth of the Qabalistic Tree. Ten was a good number for that; not too small, not too big. It was a reasonable size that fit well in the Western occult world.
