My knowledge of these things is limited to intuition, but a few ideas came to mind.  First, I don't think these were meant to be strictly technical drawings, but stimulation of the subconscious mind along the lines of Kabbalistic meditation upon the Tarot.

This strikes me as a diagram of potential flows of energy and areas of activity of the Sephiroth in the aura similar to electron probability clouds.  Not to be interpreted literally, this is only useful once perception of your 'bioelectricity' awakens via study and meditation.  I'll continue later.

interesting perspective.

mental alchemy is about unlocking the potential inside yourself. With each level of mastery a person achieves, they will find new abilities have developed.

A person can find that they will no longer need such things as tarot cards, for foreseeing, as they will have the ability to see naturally through their third eye.

Symbols when presented to our minds can be like keys. And these keys can unlock doorways of our mind.

These two images strike me as symbolically similar:

The red lion symbolizes our personality's animalistic emotional level being controlled by an enlightened subconscious mind.  The loop of roses symbolizes the concentration (sun idea) of electromagnetic force (vegetable/ moon idea) leading to evolution and the development of self-consciousness (sun idea).  The lion's waving (moon idea) tail strikes me as similar to the water of life coming out of the dragon's tail, feeding the lunar tree on the right.  The smaller dragon being held, ready for flight and the vegetable trefoils almost 'taking flight' from the woman's crown seem like the 'chalybs' or butterflies mentioned in some places like Mary Anne Atwood's Hermetic Philosophy and Alchemy

 

"the First Matter is indeed the union of masculine and feminine spirits... these are his generations, physical and metaphysical. The thing itself, continues he, is a world without form, a divine animated mass of complexion like silver, neither mere power nor perfect action, but a weak virgin substance, a certain soft prolific Venus, the very love and seed of nature, the mixture and moisture of heaven and earth... speaking of the same Matter, a clear Light, which fills with true virtue every mind that has once perceived it; it is the nucleus and bond of all the elements which are contained in it, and the spirit which nourishes all things, and by means of which nature operates universally; it is the virtue, true beginning, and end of the whole world; in plain terms, the quintessence is no other than our viscous celestial and glorious soul drawn from its minera by our magistery.  O our heaven, O our water, O our mercury, O our slat nitre, abiding in the sea of the world! O our vegetable; O our sulfur, fixed and volatile; O our caput mortuum, or dead head, or foeces of our sea! Our water, that wets not the hands; without which nothing grows or is generated in the whole world! And these are the Epithetes of Hermes, his Bird, which is never at rest.

 

It is of small account, yet no body can be without it, and so thou hast discovered to thee a thing more precious than the whole world; which I plainly tell thee is nothing else than our sea water, which is congealed in gold and silver, and extracted by the help of our chalybs, or steel, by the art of philosophers, in a wonderful manner by a prudent son of science.

 

...and if we presume to add here, that it is the simple generated substance of life and light, immanifestly flowing throughout nature, and define it as that without which nothing that exists is able to be, we are not for this yet wiser how to obtain or work it apart; nor are words sufficient to convey a just notion where there is no ground of apprehension; and whether a thing be most like water, earth, fire, quicksilver, azote, or ether, is indifferent to the mind, needing actual experience to fix its idea. This the art promises to a patient and true philosopher, but as a reward of individual labor and perseverance only."

 
From Goethe's Faust:

“You can’t, if you can’t feel it, if it never

Rises from the soul, and sways

The heart of every single hearer,

With deepest power, in simple ways.

You’ll sit forever, gluing things together,

Cooking up a stew from other’s scraps,

Blowing on a miserable fire,

Made from your heap of dying ash.

Let apes and children praise your art,

If their admiration’s to your taste,

But you’ll never speak from heart to heart,

Unless it rises up from your heart’s space.”

 

“When scholars study a thing, they strive to kill it first, if it's alive; then they have the parts and the'be lost the whole, for the link that's missing was the living soul.”

WHAT IS SACRED GEOMETRY?

Sacred Geometry means literally “the Sacred Measure of the Earth.” It has been taught as a powerful, practical spiritual science to closed groups of Initiates in every great spiritual tradition of the world. Sacred Geometry holds the keys to how non-physical Spirit creates the manifest world through specific patterns, each of which creates specific functions of Life or Consciousness. Sacred Geometry provides a solid foundation for both Scientific and Spiritual Knowledge.

Every pattern in Sacred Geometry is like a “Letter” in a “Divine Alphabet”; every pattern creates a specific function of Life and Consciousness. We can learn to read these “Letters” (patterns) and then ‘spell words’ with these divine creative forms. In other words, we learn to read in the book of nature and use spirit’s own language of sacred geometry to create optimal effects in any work we undertake.

Sacred Geometry allows us to directly understand the “geometric coding system” that Spirit uses to manifest all Life and Consciousness. It gives us vital insight into the foundations of both spirit and matter, insights which can be applied in both spiritual and scientific pursuits. It also allows us to heal the painful split between spirituality and rational, scientific understanding which so afflicts our modern society and our own soul life. Sacred Geometry has been taught for millenia to Spiritual Initiates in multiple spiritual traditions around the world for a very good reason: it can be applied to transform our own life energy, consciousness, and the world around us in the most beneficial ways possible. In fact, one reason that the previously secret teachings of Sacred Geometry are now being made publicly available (by multiple spiritual traditions) is so that the knowledge can be applied to help heal ourselves and our planet.
