“Apocalyptic Key – The Seven Seals of St John”

from Dogme et Rituel de la Haute Magie by Eliphas Levi

The seven seals referenced here originate from a vision in the Revelation of John, the last book of the Bible. In it the seer writes, “I watched as the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals,” before going on to describe seven visions, the first four of which are of the four horsemen of the apocalypse. Elsewhere in the book it is hinted that the lamb is Jesus. From the symbols in the above image it would seem that Levi saw astrological correspondences to the seven seals.
