The next word uttered by God was Wisdom (Hochma). Wisdom represents reflection, meditation, intuition, and insights. Wisdom is the echo of the first archetype Crown. It symbolizes the mirror in which God’s Oneness reflects itself. Reflection— via meditation or other techniques of inner discovery—enables us to locate the divine part of ourselves. Kabbalists paint Wisdom in silver-gray to signify the wisdom we attain as we age. Gray also suggests that life is not black and white, all or nothing, good or bad. Wisdom correlates not to any particular planet, but to the zodiac wheel in its entirety. It is wise, then, to examine the entire, complicated, circular (endless) picture. As the source of the astrological wheel, Wisdom also generates and oversees the divine astrological contracts that guide our paths here on earth.
