Mazal Tov is an expression used when offering congratulations or wishing good luck.
A more significant message is revealed by delving into the meanings of the word mazal.
The most common definition of mazal, is an �alignment of stars.�
Each of us in born under an astrological field with a particular energy flow.
Our mazal determines personality, circumstances and potential�our destiny.
The Jewish people believe that we can transcend our destiny. As referenced
in the Torah, G-d lifted Abraham above the stars and changed his destiny.
Another meaning for mazal is a�drip from above.� Our tradition
sees our mazal as the influence of the stars trickling down on us.
The mystics have yet another meaning. It is said that our soul, our mazal,
shines like a brilliant star from above with only one ray inhabiting our bodies.
The visual expression of Mazal Tov combines all of these meanings.
The top of the painting shows the heavens filled with stars that are
shining and trickling downward. The main orb, symbolizing our soul,
emits an orange ray into the largest circle, representing our physical body.
Destiny is represented by the silver bar. As it travels through the stars,
the upward movement expresses the concept of transcending one�s destiny.
The design highlights the juxtaposition of the down and up movements.
When we offer a Mazal Tov, we evoke the energy of the cosmic field to channel blessings.
When heaven and earth meet and blessings abound, our destinies can be transcended.
