Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-Key 0-THE FOOL & The Wild Wood Tarot Key 0- The Wanderer

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-Key 0: THE FOOL & The Wild Wood Tarot-key-0-THE WANDERER:

The Fool or Wanderer is the most esoteric of all the Arcane. Every card in the Tarot Deck is an aspect of THE FOOL-0, and therefore, 78 different aspects of your Psyche, who is the soul.

As a Path, THE FOOL/WANDERER connects Kether -1-(Crown) with Chokmah-2- (Wisdom). To the Qabalist, Kether is known as the Source of All, The "I" and Chokmah is known as Father God or God of the Covenant, who along with Binah-Understanding forms the "AM".

The Path of Aleph, meaning OX, is about the "flowing of Life Force and creative power", showing the "SPIRIT'S aim to be that of Earth and/or Sensual Being. Crowley symbolizes this "Holy Spirit" ( The Spirit on every level of the Tree of Life)  as a dove in the Thoth Deck Card. Crowley also called The Letter Aleph, a phallic symbol.....but then so is the Projected Will that is THE MAGUS, and one wonders if Crowley was so besotted with the Phallus, that he was unable to see anything else; However, truth be told, by reference to Sexes and sexuality do we come to the minutest glimmering of understanding about the Universe.

To even begin understanding THE FOOL, we must entertain  a multifaceted and fluid interpretation of Force and Form.  In his book THE THIRTY-TWO PATHS OF WISDOM, Dr.Paul Foster Case, founder of the Builders of the Adytum, calls this Path of Aleph, the Eleventh Path and the fiery or Scintillating Intelligence. which makes sense as The Path of Aleph boarders on the Limitless Light (Ain Soph), which is "not" or "naught", Light without limit which is darkness to us who need a beginning and a end to see. So here we try to explain what can't be seen as The Fiery Darkness which is the possibility of vibration or motion and the First Perception of the One having potential for activity.

In the context of Masculine sexuality, the Fool is the Testes, and the Magus is the Phallus,(represented by the three flowers beneath the spread legs of THE FOOL) as He directs active first flow from the Fool rather than potentiality doing so. However, I fear that is a rather limiting concept of the ONE-----as the Ain Soph is "No-Thing", but then, all concepts are less than the potential for conception.

We may reason that the potential for Thought, comes from the Dark Energy as Dark Matter (The First Material of creation is Thought). The appearance of Thought emanates Mind, which is the vessel for Thoughtful ideas and/or Womb of Thought Forms, i.e. The I-magi-nation, transcending all reason. Thus, our reason, leaves us with more questions than answers but necessarily so because we then must build (create) the answers, just as the Divine Creative does!

Limitlessness is a very difficult concept! To say that THE FOOL represents the initial potential for thought which transcends reason, is about the best I can do with words. However, the special reality we may touch in sleep, often gives us images that do not correlate to our mundane understanding of reality, so our dreams seem to be so much abstraction and are considered as nonsense to our waking condition. However, the Great Work (As above so below) involves the assimilation of The Real, not a reality conceived of mundane ideas base on self-absorbed survival thinking. And the Real Concepts are from "what is Not" making "What is" from Dreams of Potential- Self!

To think of the Universe as "God Dreaming" (Darkness Dreaming it is Light) is very difficult to grasp, and the fact that you are a "Lucid" Dreamer (Image of God), who has been given the "Power of Observation", meaning you can change the Perspective of "Things" (The Simulation Hypothesis of Quantum Physics), is just about as mind boggling as it gets....and just such a glimmer of insight requires a "beyond the Mundane" understanding of Self! Thus, your Divinity is not often acknowledge by the mundane; However, your Womb, the conception of "the image of God", is the invisible Sephira, Daath (knowledge), which is the Path Where Goddess (Understanding)/God (Wisdom) meet face to face ( Tibetan,Yab Yum) and is known as the Path of Daleth-THE EMPRESS, your Spiritual Birth Mother/ Feminine Principle of the Divine Creative!

 All the Paths leading upward to Kether, THE FOOL, THE MAGUS, AND THE HIGH PRIESTESS, must be approached with a certain understanding of whimsy, as we realize that by crossing the Abyss and approaching Kether (As above, so below) means the total annihilation of Self as we perceive it. Thus, presenting us with the irony of our attempt to grasp such esoteric and refined principles from an earthly-mundane perspective.

It must be noted, that often, when teaching the Major Arcana and knowing what I speak, cannot truly convey what I am saying, brings a smile, if not outright laughter to my face. To me, The I AM potential is ironically displayed as a limited conception--a Me. Being a "Me" must never be taken to seriously, for it is a simulation of the Soul, and that concept of Self will change daily, when one enters the Higher Self.

ALEPH: (Ox) Avram ( Abraham).

And God said to Abram," Go for yourself from your land, from your relatives, and from your father's house to the land that I will show you. And I will makes of you a great nation. I will bless you and make your home great, and you shall be a blessing."
                                      Genesis 12:1-2
Thus began the long journey for Abram, who hasn't yet earned the name Abraham for he has yet to earn the holy  Heh, signifying his connection with the Divine. Many long trials, tribulations, journeying through foreign lands and through deserts ---all signifying the travels one must take on the Paths of the Tree of Life of Qabalistic fame. This Hebrew Letter, Aleph, is all about a change of perspective, that must happen before we can become the divine being we were created to be. This Divine Wanderer, is being depicted on the Wild Wood Tarot-Key 0-The Wanderer.

We know this journey to be a deeper one than just a physical change----it is about an inner change where we must leave behind our previous presumptions, closed minded thought, expectations, etc. Where we must change our perspective about life, ourselves and everybody else and we must go for ourselves leaving the past behind, as we travel the rainbow path. The Rainbow Path is a collective of the many paths taken in life that have led to the One.

In Qabalistic terms this is the path of  key-0 -The Fool or Wanderer Card (Patriarch), for he is Kether the Sephiroth on top of the Tree of Life. Kether, who represents the Highest level of the Universal- Collective-Mind which we can only approach by completely annihilating the Self-Simulation, as we conceive it, but with a whimsical approach, so that we may understand the irony of attempting to grasp such lofty principles from an earthly perspective.  "As above, so below and as below so above", signifies this journey  that seems most difficult and impossible as we look into the mirror image of below to see that which is above. We must look deeply into Malkuth (Below), using all our senses, and there find Kether (The Above---"the other side of the Mirror')in all things.

The Divine Spirit is all we know (The One Energy Conscious that is us, all around us, above us and below us), we live within it (as  a reflection lives in a mirror), we breath it ( Spirit is Breath); it is ourselves. Everything is an expression of the  One Energy symbolized by the Fool/Wanderer, which is the beginning of All, as Aleph is the beginning of the alphabet. And as an Ox, the meaning of Aleph,  we must be strong in our journey, never deviating, sometimes plodding along, through many perspectives of ourselves and everyone else, before we can view the Above ( "see the light").

Qabalisitically, Key -O- The Fool or Wanderer, is represent by the "0", because zero is  a great symbol for the Universal Egg of Spirit, The Egg of Akasha. The Mathematics of  zero is plus 1 (male) minus 1 (female). Thus the egg of the Cosmos is a fertilized ovum of undefined sexuality, neither male nor female but ripe with the potential for both.  Hence, Key-O-The Fool is Androgynous energy (I call it "The Womb with a view") which differentiates into the dramatis personae  of the other twenty-one keys. Obviously I gave you many avenues for research here, You must "go forth alone" to travel this path----which means a lot of self realization through diligent effort. The Statement I have formed as a loop for dispelling my inordinate need to "quit", is simply this, " Get over yourself and get on with you, For impeccability is what we do".  With that in mind, I take on the next challenge with a step into the Abyss of the unknown, and find that my foot is solidly supported! God speed on your miraculous journey into your Above that Adored your Below into being! 
The Thoth Tarot Card-The Fool or The Wild Wood Tarot-The Wanderer, is the Divine Negative above the Tree of Life; the source of all things. It is the Dark Energy, the Unknowable, the innocent and it is the Vacuum part of Air.

This card is attributed to the Hebrew Letter Aleph, which means Ox, and by its shape represents a plowshare, making the symbol Phallic. Aleph or Alef is the first of the Mother letters, Mem and Shim are the others. Making this card a womb as well. These three correspond to all the triads that occur in the Thoth Deck cards, notably, Fire, Air and Water,; Father, Mother, Son (Sun); Sulfur, Salt, Mercury; And the Hindu, Rajas, Sattvas and Tamas.

The Fool or Wanderer, is the Qabalistic zero, which is the equation of the Universe; the initial and final balance of the opposites.

If we assume that the Tarot is of Egyptian origin (Crowley obviously does) then the medieval  name for this card Le Mat (from the Italian, Matto which means mad-man or fool) which later becomes Maut, the Egyptian Vulture Goddess who was a more sublime modification of Nuit that Isis. Among the legends concerning the Vulture, there are two most prominent and they are that the Vulture has a  spiral neck (the Universe according to Einstein, is of Spiral energy----we call this Spirit) and the other, is that the Vulture is supposed to reproduce her species by the intervention of wind. In other words, Air/Mind is considered the Father of all Manifested existence. This Fool, (derived from follis, which means wind-bag) is both the Father and Mother in the most abstract of terms. This is Air/Mind element is implied by the Wild Wood Wanderer, who with absolute trust in Spirit, is stepping into the Abyss of Air blown clouds onto the rainbow path, leading to the Wild Wood beyond.
[Prometheus-bound by Paul Rubens.]
Then there is the legend of  Prometheus who stole fire from his Father Zeus, and gave it to mankind (The Life Force). For his punishment he was chained to a mountain and a Vulture would swoop down every 7 days and eat his liver; somehow this never killed him for it symbolizes reincarnation.

The legend goes on and he was later saved by the Goddess Hathor, but it is important to note, that Fire is Spirit, and Mountain means Earth, the Greeks believed that the Liver was the home of the soul and Vulture is the Goddess of Reincarnation ( the number seven is the number of the Goddess). So basically, Prometheus (Fire-bearer) was disowned and was made human and had to live and die with mankind. Some might call that theft Foolish, others would call him the Savior. Therefore the connection between foolishness and holiness are traditional. In the East the madman is believed to be "possessed" by divinity, a holy man or prophet. This was also a belief of many Native American nations. In our western culture, so deep is this identity of the fool, that it is buried in our language. "Silly" means empty, i.e. The Vacuum of Air, Zero. And the word "silly" is from the German word Selig which means, holy or blessed. This describes the Innocence of the Fool. Since He/She is the Whole (Holy) one the Fool or Wanderer is also compared to the "Holy Ghost".

In the beginning, there was no separation of male and female (there isn't really one now either), as all is one energy  as Male is expressive and female is receptive, both aspects are attributed to the Fool and both aspects are in each of us. Thus, mundanely male is easily categorized as electric and female as magnetic.

In the Thoth Deck the Fool is illustrated as the "Green Man", the "April Fool", who to the Medieval,  is the Personification of the mysterious phenomena that produces Spring. Any way you look at it, The Great Fool, is a definite doctrine. The Survival mind is always looking for a Savior but Salvation (whatever that may mean) is not obtained by any reasonable means. Reason is an impasse, a damnation, only divine madness, offers an issue.

This is the Qabalisitic formula of the Tetragrammaton.[ Zero = plus 1, minus 1.] This is also the formula for male and female. Let me give you a clue, if you-The Psyche,  manifest a male-polarity form on this side of the Mirror of Light, than your identity on the other-side of the Mirror is Female in polarity. Welcome to the concept of Hermes-Aphrodite...Divine Hermaphrodite!

To reiterate: THE THOTH TAROT- FOOL- 0 & The Wild Wood Tarot-Key 0-The Wanderer, is the initial potential for thought, transcending all reason. Thus, objectifying the Upper Regions, the Supernal Triangle is a futile endeavor. However, once we recognize the impossibility of consciously approaching the Highest Levels of the Tree of Life, i.e. The Universal Collective Unconscious, in a direct manner, we are forcibly driven into the key Principles of the Mysteries/Metaphysics of As Above, So Below, so Below, as Above.
 We begin seeing that the Below is a mirror reflection of the Above. The Divine Spirit is all we know, we breathe it, we live within it, it is ourselves. Because we know this Divinity to be "the One Energy that cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed and transmitted", we know that everything is of this One who is Two, as symbolized by THE FOOL that is the Path of Aleph.
In this context, Aleph is attributed to Air and means Life-Breath. Just as Spirit is from the Greek root word Spiro, which means Breath. Tho One Spirit, the Holy Spirit, is then the Life-Breath. This is well known in Eastern cultures, and Prana Yamas (Breath yoga meaning,"life/death") are a major if not primary part of all Spiritual development. The Word Prana, is the Life-Breath energy and "I Am Prana", is another way of seeing yourself.

Now I have described the Magus in past blogs, as relating to "Words" (vibration), the underlying sonic of patterned manifestation. However, it is the power of breath that expels the sound. Thus THE FOOL activates THE MAGUS.

Crowley, considered Air to be a vacuum, as related to THE FOOL who is the fertile Nothingness and egg of Spirit, so too speak. The universal Egg of Spirit is known, by Gnostic and Qabalisits, to be the EGG OF AKASHA, the zero of THE FOOL which also represents this egg of spirit, and is the mathematical formula of us one male, minus one female= 0 . Therefore, the understanding is that the Egg of Akasha, is a fertilized ovum of undefined sexuality, but having the potential for Both! One who is Two.

The Fool/Wanderer, is the very expression of the god name of Kether, Eheieh, which means- I will be. This is the Divine Child as yet unborn, who is all potential and who is our very beginning!
Therefore the Tiger, "fawning about" the Thoth Fool's  leg, is also an archetype representing the Animal Nature (survival mind) as related to the Higher Spiritual process.
The androgynous figure of the Wanderer, is dressed in the mosses, barks and foliage of nature, as related to the healing processes of nature.

The Horns on the Thoth figure represent those of Dionysus Zagreus, the green clothing is that of the Green Man of Spring, the grapes at his feet are a tribute to Bacchus, the Greek God of Ecstasy, and the Crocodile (great creative energy) a swimming at his feet in "the Nile" (Crowley quote). Also are images referring to the Godhead, such as the dove of Venus and the vulture of Maat. Then there is the triple egg shape created by the caduceus in motion, symbolizing the Ain Soph Aur (The three states of No-thing). 
As you may realize, the imagery is so subjective that I haven't the space to detail it all for you. If you need more detail, and you do, I would recommend reading Crowley's BOOK OF THOTH,  Robert Wang's Book: THE QABALISTIC TAROT and investigating the Mythology of the Ancient Greeks and Egyptians.

When THE FOOL  card is thrown during a reading:
  • The querent is in or experiencing a state of  ecstasy and/or a state of Peek experience.
  • Fearlessness.
  • Courage. 
  • And is completing all motion  by Faith, absolutely trusting THE SPIRIT.
  •  A feeling of being protected, and that everything will work out.
  • Being open to what the future brings!
  • Taking a leap into the dark.
  • All that is required is faith in your soul.
If ill defined by accompanying cards, The Fool, is then the harbinger of folly, mania, extravagance and even negligence

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-Princess of Disks & The Night Sun Tarot-Page of Pentacles.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-Princess of Disks & The Night Sun Tarot-Page of Pentacles;

The Thoth Tarot- Ace of Disks, represents the seed of the Energy Transformation that we call Earth, and is the throne the Princess of Disks or Page of Pentacles sits on.

The knowledge of the new Aeon of Horus, dispels the archaic concept of Earth as a evil, passive, immobile, even dead  element. Rather, Earth is a transformation of Intelligent Energy Conscious that many moderns call Gaea. Now this may all be new to us of the "Divide and Conquer" military industrial complex, but as I tour my Soul, I find a Perspective-Personality, of Native American manifestation who named this Intelligent Force of Earth, Grandmother River.  This "primitive" personality, as did the Alchemists, seemed to understand that the " Water and Sun" union, transformed the energy of soil into living forms, and that all blood, is "Mother's" blood long before our scientist "discovered" this very concept in  the science of genetics.

Therefore, The Thoth Deck Ace of Disks, is a styled rendition of a Molecule, (the union of atoms) show in the back ground of the Emerald Green of the Aeon of Isis (Grandmother River ). This Emerald Green is of the King-Scale color decided upon by the Egyptian Hierophants. Therefore, this green is not the original vegetable green of Isis but that of the " emerald-spring green" of the new Aeon following the resurrection of Osiris as Horus. Nor are the disks considered to be the dead chemistry of coins or pentacles; rather they are the whirling  emblems of  Star, Planets, atoms etc, all of which are whirling spheres...just as your 7 dimensions of Aura; of Star Fire around your body Spins, Whirls, and Shouts out Loud---I AM ME!

There is the new  Qabalistic doctrine of Tetragrammaton where Heh' --the final earthly component, the Daughter/Princess/Page, is set upon the Throne of the Mother, to awaken the Eld of the All-Father. In the words of Zoroaster, Tetragrammaton is a " rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud." Hence, "The Name" is not a dead symbol, but a whirling Sphere of Divine Action.

The  center of the Thoth Deck Ace of Disks is a complicated Hieroglyph  representing the "the chosen priest- and apostle of infinite space" and/or the "prince-priest the Beast." (Liber AL. I.15.). In the center of all is yet another form of Tetragrammaton, the Phallus, showing Sol and Luna, with the number 666 inscribed, as to equilibrating the 7 sevens adding to 156 (Babalon-The Scarlett woman.) Now explaining this philosophy of the Hermetic Qabalah, is far too lengthy and complicated for this blog, even many books have a problem with the explanations, so I recommend that you get the Book of Thoth, and scroll to pages 210-212 for further information and references.
As stated: The central cipher on the Thoth Princess of Disks, is enclosed in a Heptagram that is interlaced with Pentagons whose sides are extended forming a wheel of 10 spokes, bounded by a Decagon encompassed in a circular band with the inscribed name of TO META EHPION--- [Meaning "beyond Ehpion"..Ehpion, is a name often associated with Lucifer]
About this whirling Disk are its six wings (6 is the number of the Sun) The Thoth Deck Ace of Disks is the glyph of Earth as understood in the new Aeon of Horus. Sol and Terra are known as living beings, one's constant companions in a Universe of Pure Joy.

The Princess of Disks or Page of Pentacles;   Represents the earthly part of Earth. The Thoth Princess is strong and beautiful and impregnated with a secret wonder. Crested with the head of a ram (another symbol for Aries, Mars, The Lightning Lord, and/or the male electric force, the Sun) signifying a head full of fertile ideas,  She holds a diamond (precious stone of Kether)  tipped sceptre, into the earth, which symbolizes the birth of the Highest- Purest light  in the deepest darkest elements. What the Ace of Disks professes, she makes manifest.


As would a priestess of Freya or Demeter, she stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat-sheaf, which is the sigil of the Priestess of Demeter. She is pregnant with the secret of the future. ...The bearer of Spring; a Spring that frees us from the "dark horrors of winters past". The fertile Consciousness of Horus rather than the dead militaristic  and slavery- obsessed consciousness of Osiris.
The disk she bears, is a Chinese idiom denoting the twin spiral force of the universe in equilibrium giving birth to the Rose of Isis, the Great Fertile Mother.The characteristics of this card are in a plethora of ancient myths, far too numerous for this blog's enumerations, suffice it to say, that the Princess of Disks is  Womb-hood (Womanhood) in its ultimate projection.

 Princess of Disks or Page of Pentacles, is about Mastery of Creativity and Birth of  New Forms. She is the pregnant one of new conception on the Thoth Tarot card.

As you may have gleamed by now, all the Tarot court cards represent archetypal states of conscious energy that weave a pattern of energy and data in the material world.

The Greeks called this state of consciousness, Persephone, who enters Hades, every winter and escapes Hades and manifests on Earth every spring.
  1. She is the pioneering nature of fertility,(represented by the Aries horns on her head) and:
  2. The serpent transforming into an ermine cape, represents her ancient earthly passion to create.
  3. Her lighted crystal staff, shows her desire to give birth to new forms that are in alignment with who she is.
  4. Her determination to manifest the organic balanced harvest is shown by the pedestal of  grains that she is standing on.
  5. The balanced union of  female magnetic and male electric forces are represented in the yin/yang center of the lotus blossom which show the creative approaches to motherhood issues or issues surrounding her own mother (Persephone and Hera had issues).

(see astrological birthday/Tarot wheel chart to establish your archetype personality)
On the brink of transformation, the Princess of Disks personality is the earthly part of Earth. Brooding in wonder, she is strong and beautiful while pregnant with the secret wonder of the future.

As would Freya and Frey,( Norse Grove Goddess and God) she stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat-sheaf which is a symbol for Demeter. But she is not alone. Contrary to the sexism of divisonistic thought, She is never without He and He is never without She, so She holds in Her left hand a disk which bears the Chinese ideogram denoting the twin spiral force of Goddess/God (The Divine Creative of all Creation), in equilibrium; from this is born the Rose of Isis (Rose-Mari), the Great Fertile Mother of the Nile delta.

The characteristics of the Princess of Disks personality are more numerous than a blog hopes to enumerate for She is the Ultimate in Womanhood and has all the characteristics of the "Womb with a View" , the Mother of all Forms.

She contains all the characteristics of mysterious woman and it depends on the influences she is subject to whether "one or the other" of these traits manifest as action. However, this is not a scattering of energy, rather whatever trait she acts on, it is pure and focused, and life changing. To the shallow (those afraid of their depth), she is bewildering inconsistency; to the centered, she is a "Powerful Moment" of Beauty.  Hence, she is both nourishing and vitalizing.

The Night Sun Tarot-Page of Pentacles, uses the traditional tarot's Page designation, instead of that of a Princess. Pages, although considered androgynous, were assumed safe to use on the Medieval tarot decks, since they weren't showing a ruling feminine force, that the Christian Inquisition violently objected to.
However, secretly, the Page was still considered a "virgin girl", who was both mischievous, impulsive and initiative.  She usually was considered the bearer of "good news". Hence, the Night Sun Tarot depicts her holding a rolled scroll.  Around this page's shoulders, are the crescent horns of both her Parents adornments, depicting the Moon goddess. Instead of a grove, she is in front of a large tree, and surrounded by lush vegetation. On the Upper left and upper right, of the Night Sun Card, are shown the sigils of earth, marking the Page of Pentacles as "earth of earth".

Page or Princess, We may see her as Persephone arising from the nether world of winter into the bright light of Spring, symbolizing that from the deepest, darkest depths arises the Wisdom of "Womb-Rite"; the resurrection and regeneration of the Living. There really isn't any negative here, unless one finds her ability to "be purely in the moment", too rapid and unsettling for their need for past linear- stability. Such a shallow one would be unable to see that stability is based purely on "the movement of Moment" and not a linear line of addition. Thus is she serpentine in her motion. The universe is Spirals upon Spirals, dimensions upon dimensions, union upon union and suffers no division. To enjoy her, you must dance with her in her sacred grove of Life.

If the Princess of Disks or the Page of Pentacles card shows up in a reading, it is best said that:

  • Rebirth is apparent from past defeat, or that a new love is blooming in your life etc.
  • This is the Lady of Rebirth and Renewal and to understand the Depth of the Ultimate Womb---is to meditate long and hard on this card, and to read the Goddess Myths with the eye (I) of the soul. In this world, where love is a profit sharing endeavor, it is hard for most of us to believe that "Love built Me to be Itself"----Love is a state of energy consciousness and is Now, and fearless of the future.
  • Force manifesting into form.
  • Energy acquiring density.
  • A young Woman or person that is:
  1. Purposeful, determined and diligent.
  2. Responsible, preserving and intelligent.
  3. Generous, reflective, and sensitive,
  4. A good student who is worldly and sensual.
  • The creative part of the Earth anima within the organic form. We are all Androgyny, (female side of brain and male side of the brain) and both sexes of our species can become pregnant with desire and creative ideas.
  • This creative idea and the desire to manifest, has been gestating with in your nature for some time.
  • For a woman, this card can represent the need to resolve motherhood issues.
  • For male and female, this card can represent the need to resolve or restructure relationship issues with Aries or Scorpio people in your life. ( Aries-March 21 -April 21) (Scorpio: October 21-November 21).
  • Do to the very nature of the Princess of Disks "tunnel focus" on creation, this card can warn us of  the dangers of becoming so focused on one thing, that we cannot enjoy the life all around us. 

  • When the Princess of Disks or Page of Pentacles, is thrown, it represents:
  •  A young woman with rich  brown or red- brown hair and dark eyes,who is generous, kind, diligent, benevolent, careful and endowed with persevering courage.
  • She may also be pregnant with child or birthing ideas, projects, identity and self aspects.
  • She is on the Brink of Transformation and Revelation.
  • She may also have a concentrated desire to learn, and is applying her fertile mind to scholarly pursuits.  
If ill defined:
  • She becomes wasteful and prodigal.

Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Prince of Disks & The Night Sun Tarot-Knight of Pentacles

The Tarot of EliThe Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- Prince of Disks & The Night Sun Knight of Pentacles:

 Both represent the airy part of Earth (Air is Conscious-Mind) and thus the Prince of Disks or Knight of Pentacles, is considered to be the intelligible part of Earth. He rules the zodiac from the 21st degree of Aries to the 20th degree of Taurus. Therefore we have the ox /bull, the "sacred animal of Earth", pulling the chariot on the Thoth Prince card .
The Thoth Prince of Disks is wearing a helm crowned with the Bull of Taurus. In his left hand is the Globe of Earth with geometric symbols implying agriculture (which is an invention of Binah-the Great Mother) and in his right hand is the orb-scepter adorned with the equal armed cross (Earth-Air-Water-Fire) a symbol of the Great Work (Life) accomplished. Therefore, he is the stable but active force of the "Green man" as he brings forth from the Earth, vegetation which is the substance that Spirit enlivens. He is barely clothed because we have a "pan-force" here who is both fertile and lustful, like a bull. He is Earth's Husband which in the Anglo-Saxon, means "keeper of Her property"; He is a Care-taker of Her Forms.

 In past blogs, I have stated that Tiphareth, the 6th Sephiroth, is The Central Sun; the Soul of our conscious-energy expression into incarnation, and it is from Tiphareth/Beauty that the Intelligence of all the Princes or Knights of traditional tarot radiate. Tiphareth is called-Beauty, and is as high as our Personal Conscious can go up the Tree, since Tiphareth/Our Soul, is the inventor of that personal simulation. This state of Consciousness is known in the Mysteries, as the Christ, or Buddha consciousness and it brings the body into a "higher" state of vibratory life force that we may know as "unconditional Love".
 Since we are the Psyche of the psychosomatic form, a higher state of vibratory life force changes the physiology. However, only through diligent meditative techniques and ritual divination is this conscious state possible to physically experience. This is because the Soul/or Solar Self, is the transmitter of our original personality, that gets interfered with on the earth plane, due to indoctrination, fear of rejection (peer pressure) etc.. After a time, that interference is so great, that we can't "tune in" our Real Psyche anymore and now "belong to the world of Man".

(Also called the Knight of Pentacles, in other Tarot Decks), is the Prince of the Chariot of Earth.

Prince and Emperor of the Gnomes this Prince is zodiacally attributed to the last Decan of Aries and the first two Decan of Taurus.

The Prince of Disks is the Air of Earth and/or Specific Air (Rational Mind) of Primal Earth. The Chariot of the Prince of Disks is pulled by the Bull of Taurus, demonstrating this attribute.

Being Air of Earth, the Prince is Intelligible Earth, as Air is Mind. Thus he brings incredible energy to physical matters. Such intelligent Earth, is the instinctual mind that shows its incredible focus on building, as in bees, ants, etc.
Because the Prince of Disks is so active, his armor is light and nonrestrictive.
  1. On his head is the Bull helmet, reflecting an animal sacred to the earth.
  2. The disk in his hand is an orb resembling a globe, marked in agricultural mathematical symbols.
  3. The orbed scepter, that is surmounted by a cross, is a symbol of the Great Work accomplished. The Great Work being manifesting the Higher States of Conscious Energy, in the lower states of consciousness below, on earth; by physical focus and attention to work.
  4. On the Thoth Prince of Disks, the double Helix, that he is holding shows his ability to build new worlds that can be implemented consciously (winged helmet) in concrete and aesthetic ways.
What many of us don't understand, is that if you empty your brain of random thoughts, while only focusing on the task at hand, you are meditating! Even a daily commute in your car, with radio off, and doing nothing but "hands on the wheel" driving, while paying absolute attention to traffic, is a meditation! The Prince of Disks intelligence does understand this, and albeit seemingly slow, knows that multi-tasking, is just another way to do nothing well, as he is wont to focus completely on the task at hand. 

The Prince of Disks,is the Green Man force of Celtic mysteries, whose job it is to bring forth, from the Earthly element, that Vegetation, which is the sustenance of Spirit itself. The Mother Earth makes the form, he enlivens it and enforces the design.[Green man image courtesy of Lunamagic]

The Character of the Prince of Disks or Knight of Pentacles, is methodical, competent, ingenious, enduring, trustworthy, cautious, and imperturbable. All the qualities of a very capable manger and a steadfast preserving worker. Very good at horticulture and hard-patient work.
This Prince of Mind and Earth, is ingenious  as he constantly seeks new ways of using common things. Always adapting the circumstance to his slow and methodical purpose. This is to say, that his plans are well thought out. His emotions are subdued, thus he may appear insensitive and maybe even dull and slow of wit. But this is because of one's misinterpretation of his mental activity of which he won't devote to ideas that he understands to be beyond his expertise.  Simply, the reaction of others to this stalwart character, depends entirely on their temperament and not his. 

The Night Sun Tarot-Knight of Pentacles, wears the bull headed cape, which displays his Taurian nature. While, his head dress is displaying the Ram horns of Aries, displaying his zodiacal sign of Aries in Taurus.  The lush greenery, and his green outerwear, all depict the fecundness of his nature. The Sun, radiating behind him and the tree, is the Solar Tiphareth on the Tree of Life.
On the upper right of the Night Sun card, is the sigil for earth, and the upper left is the sigil for fire. Therefore, the Night Sun Tarot designates him as "fire of earth", as designation the Thoth Tarot gives to the Knight of Disks, Crowley's interpretation of the King.

The Thoth Tarot-Prince of Disks and the Night Sun Tarot-Knight of Pentacles, represents the physical architect and the builder of new worlds. On the Thoth Tarot Card, the steel chariot represents his steely eyed determination that he uses to build fecund and fruitful worlds (flowers and fruit in the background). The many little boulders in the back of the Chariot, are from breaking down big obstructions into little ones so his new worlds are less obstructive and difficult for the alive.

The Prince of Disks or the Knight of Pentacles reforms the body through exercise as he is also a sportsman. Like Taurus the Bull, he forges ahead, unimpeded to form abundant and beautiful structures.

This Personality is one of great energy brought onto practical matters.
  • He is energetic, enduring, steadfast, a capable manager, and tireless worker.
  • His many qualities are shown in a character that is  competent, ingenious, thoughtful, cautious, trustworthy, and imperturbable.
  • On a consistent basis, he invents new uses for common things and adapts his circumstances to his purpose in a slow deliberate, well thought out manner.
  • Thus, some may think him slow and stupid, to their peril, for he is almost totally lacking in emotion and is somewhat insensitive but is very clever.
  •  Most often, he makes no effort to delve into ideas he believes are beyond his scope, and may find the more "esoteric" types aggravating. 
  • The Prince of Disks personality is slow to anger, but once he is angered---you have a implacable charging bull to contend with and physically this person can be quite "bull-like".
  • It is almost impossible to differentiate between "Well dignified" or "ill dignified" characteristics of this Card. Suffice it to say, that if "ill dignified" (surrounded by Lower emotional cards) that the quality and quantity of his character is somewhat degraded. To the point of being duller, slower, and even less empathetic.
  • This man's personality is often refereed to in the common vernacular as "the salt of the Earth" because his character is so trustworthy. And like all "slow quiet types" is easy to get along with...but terrible in anger.
  • He is a force of Nature, that should be respected and loved in all of us and a very necessary "power of the body" needed by Spiritual-Life itself. The Power of Spirit must be aligned with the Power of the Body----to become a "Holy Spirit"...for those Souls who malign the body, proclaiming it's nature as evil, are doomed to failure in the Great Work. Life obviously adores the Body----------and we are a Spiral Energy Expression of Life (Spirit and Spiral come from the same root word "Spiro" which means "breath"). It's okay to adore your body---as long as you know that all bodies "are another way to be spirit" and that the purpose of Spirit is to make bodies live!
  • This card represents mastery of body, through sports and exercise.
  •   A younger man or Taurus person that you are inspiring or is inspiring you  to be more physically active, or to move in directions more fruitful for you or him.
  • For women this card represents the inner animus of your nature that is the dynamic youthful aspect of yourself that loves activity.
  • The Prince of Disks can also represent a desire to  travel or relocate during the month of Taurus (April 21-May 21).
  • Trips, new people that inspire your moving in new directions or relocating in a new environment. This card shows the gift of practical thinking and focus in the material world.

  • Implies issues of physical activity. Such as, body building, muscle tone, sports, and a steel like resolve to move through issues and remove blocks.
  •  The querent is in a kind of Moving meditation, a focus on the material world, experiencing personal balance and productivity.
  • Becoming or is a builder who works steady towards their goals and being singularly focused on establishing security.
  • The querent, is both kind and trustworthy and will complete a long and laborious task, "come hell or high water".
  • There is suggested a Mastery here, of change and harvest procured by knowledge and productivity.
This is a hard card to make negative, the only thought being, that of slowness, and seemingly dull witted.

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Queen of Disks & The Night Sun Tarot-Queen of Pentacles.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- QUEEN OF DISKS & The Night Sun Tarot-QUEEN OF PENTACLES.

Archetype core- Personality--Generous, fertile, opulent, compassionate, comfortable, supporting, Mastery of Reflection and nurturing.

In the zodiac, The Queen of Disks rules from 21 degrees Sagittarius to 20 degrees Capricorn ( the symbol of the goat on the card). 

This represents the function of Earth as Mother. Everything about her is abundant; affection, passivity, kindness, generosity, sensibility and practicality.  

The Thoth Queen card shows a Teutonic like image representing the Goddess Erda who was primary Muse and  universal life giver to many primitive cultures in Europe.

As a persona (from the Latin Personae, which means Mask) the Queen of disks (Pentacles on traditional tarot decks) represents a mature, dark woman who is practical and able to make specific forms  out of potential substance. In other words, she is able to both nourish and define. She is the physical nutritionist. We must also remember that a personality is but a mask over the face of our Spirit. Which another Thoth Queen, Queen of Swords, points out as she holds a mask in her left hand.

Esoterically for the querent, the Queen of Disks, suggests a high level of compassion, loving and nurturing the earth, and rejoicing in life.  This card also suggests a gift from a rich relative and since it is a Threshold for birth ( giving substance to dreams) the Queen of Disks can also represent a happy marriage for a young man. 

The Queen of Disks, is a personality grounded in mothering and the earth. She shows great harmony with the Physical World  and health. This is a Wise Woman of Earth, who is very intelligent when it comes to physical things but can have difficulty arising above the material world. 

There is great symbolism to this card: 
  1. The dual meaning of the Serpentine Horns on her helm that represent the Horns of Hathor (Egyptian Earth Goddess whose symbol was the cow) and the Life force of Earth. 
  2. The Capricorn goat.
  3. The Crystal headed staff of Life (Crystallized light is what earth material is called in metaphysics). 
  4. The Reptile Patterned Dress that symbolizes regeneration force (serpents shed their old skin to become new).
  5. The Pineapple Throne of Earthly Wisdom and nutrition.

For the Qaballist, the Queen of Disks, is Water of Earth, Specific Water in the World of Primal Earth.  On the Thoth card, she holds a symbol of her ruler-ship over earth, the  six sided solid (cubed crystal) that refers to the Altar of the Mysteries. The Mysteries, are the Gnosis of many studies, from that of Alchemy, Qabalah, Tantra, Theosophy, Rosicrucian, Theology, philosophy, The Emerald tablets, etc.  Therefore the Qaballistic study of this card requires greater depth than this blog can represent on one page. I advise the serious student to do their research.

 To reiterate: The Thoth Tarot-Queen of Disks, is the Organic Living Organism of Earth. Gaea to some, Mother Nature, of all physical organic life, to others. She is the Water/Blood Of Earth and nurtures all of us with "mother's blood" that flows through our circulatory system. With the globe in her hand, she builds worlds with diet and nutrition.

The reptilian gown on the Thoth Queen of Disks, represents her  capacity to regenerate her body (organic living organism) through diet and nutrition. The pineapple throne she is siting on, represents the new fruitful worlds that she creates from past barren deserts.
With the clarity of her crystal wand, she established nutrition in all financial, health, work related areas and relationships.

With the practicality of the Capricorn goat and Aries the Ram ( her crown), the Queen of Disks establishes stable diets for herself in all areas of her life. Erda, the Teutonic goddess, who was worshiped by all primitive peoples as the universal life-giver and primary muse.

As stated before, Binha, the Creatrix, is the "will to form" and is a force that is imposed on the Pure Fiery Energy of Chokmah.
She is known as Understanding, the 3rd Sephiroth on the Tree of Life. As one knows, for an idea, once understood, can be molded into manifestation.
Again, these are not Persons, but States of Conscious Energy, called "Beings" (Archetypes) that are parts of the Divine Collective Unconscious, meaning the deep Imagination of The Tetragrammaton (YHWH), "All That Is", where images are formed and words won't explain.  Images are the only way to realize these deep inner layers of Mind and that before Mind.

Binah is the 3rd Sephiroth on the Tree of Life, in the upper part called the Supernal Triangle, She is the essence of Womb, and I often call this state of Mind a "Womb with a View", because She conceives by Understanding.
The Queens of Tarot all represent the Water/Unconsciousness in each suit; water representing Unconsciousness. They are enthroned in the Element of Consciousness (Un-Conscious is a state of Conscious) and make it bring forth the Force of the King, by realization and understanding that develops that force. As consciousness does to idea. On the Night Sun Tarot, the force of the King is implied in the Hebrew letter, Heh (upper center), that means window or sight, and is assigned to the Emperor-Key 4 card, in the Thoth Tarot.
The Queen of Disks, often called the Queen of Pentacles, is also Queen of the Thrones of Earth; Queen of the Gnomes.The Night Sun Tarot, shows her surrounded by fecund growth, even intertwined with her padded throne. On her head the "crown of thorns" that implies the sacrifices of rule.
Her crescent horned mantle, indicates the Moon, and or Mother Goddess.  In her hand she holds the golden coin, with pentacle center.  In gold, above her head, and in the upper right, is the sigil for earth.  On the upper left of this card, is the sigil for water; implying she is "water of earth".
Astrological attribution is last Decan of Sagittarius and the first two Decans of Capricorn.
The Queen of Pentacles is Water of Earth, a specific consciousness in the Primal Earth element. Most of us call her "Mother Nature".

Her ruler-ship over earth is implied in the art of this Night Sun Queen card.
Her Throne is color of vegetation as she is the life of such. On the Thoth Card, she is the Highest Aspect of passivity and this is shown as a winding passive river flowing through and fertilizing waste land. On the Night Sun, her passivity is implied as one sitting at rest.  The Great Work is ultimately expressed in fertility, where the "As a Above manifests in the Below'. She as Queen of Earth,  is the facilitator of such manifestation.

The Disk on the Thoth Queen's left arm is curved with loops and spheres interlaced, representing the ambition of matter to take part in the Great Work. This ambition is often described as Fecund motion. This is also shown by the Spiral Horns on Her helmet/crown, as Spiral force is both Spirit and Vital Life Force. 
Once again, the reptilian patterned armor of the Queen represents the regenerative force in nature, as serpents shed their skin to become more.
Hence the Queen of Disks or Pentacles:
represents the Watery part of Earth and the function of that element as Mother. She is also "Grandmother River" to certain Native Nations.

As before stated: In the Zodiac She rules from the 21st degree of Sagittarius to the 20th degree of Capricorn and represents the Highest aspect of Passivity/or Magnetic Force in Repose. As a psycho- physical (psychosomatic dynamic) union, we may notice that just by sitting by a calmly flowing river, we can feel  inner peace flowing through our desert landscape of worry and fear. We become re-balanced and centered again by the Magnetic Flow of the Great Mother. This is the very essence of our Form's life giving blood and brings back the feeling of paradise that form gives Spirit.  Grand- Mother River is a great Lover of Being! She is the river of Psychic-Magnetism, that forms all light into beings.

The Thoth Card depicts a  goat standing on a sphere, referring to the dogma of the Great Work as fertility (The expansion and liberation of life.) The Helmet she wears is of coins and/or disks, and upon it are the Great Spiral Horns of the Markhor. Her staff is topped by a Crystal Cube (Three dimensional Hexagram)  and in her left curved arm and hand, is the Spiral decorated Disk/shield. Everything in creation is a spiral creation better known a "circles upon circles".  Once again, all this represents the Ambition of matter to participate in The Great Work and/or Creation. Besides being Erda to the Germanic tribes, she was also called "hairy Mari", by certain ancient christian sects. Implying the Animal Mind of Earth, which we now call Mother Nature. To the ancients, Mari was the name of the Ocean goddess, therefore,  hairy Mari was the "land animal" aspect and/or Creatrix that is the great Ocean Mother.

The Archetype personality (and person) symbolized by this card is endowed with:
  • The quiet and serene qualities of power.
  • They are indeed ambitious, as water is ambitious which is to say they calmly go about their work.
  • They have immense wealth of affection, kindness, and greatness of heart. 
  • They are not usually intellectual, but instinct and intuition serve their needs just fine.
  • Having the qualities of being, hard working, practical, quite, domesticated they are also unassumingly lustful even to the point of "kinkiness" as they revel in the sensual fertility of their demeanor.  However, this can lead to the Bacchanalian abuse of alcohol and even drugs finding them useful  in getting outside themselves and/or the mental servitude of their cultural minds, into the Happy frivolity of surrounding Nature.
  • a person interested in physical nutrition and health.
  • a shedding of poor eating habits for those of  a new diet.
  • a shedding of old habits, or even the purchasing of new clothes.
  • the querent does all things she can do , well and it will be fruitful
  • One of a high level of compassion, nurturing abilities. loving physical life and all it has to offer.
  • one who is exceptionally procreative and nurturing in the nature of Mothering.
  • Power of practical wisdom on the physical level and in the inner world ,, applied spiritual wisdom .
  • a dark woman of great heart and serious cast of intelligence.
  • Opulence
  • Generosity
  • Also implies presents from a rich relative or a rich and happy marriage for a young man.
  • Erda, the Teutonic Mother Earth seen as a warm an nurturing deity.

Besides being a personality,
The Querent is experiencing:
  •   A loving relationship with the physical plane.
  • Physical or practical competence.
  • Knowing how to maintain personal security, in health, wealth and spiritual manifestation. 
  • A personality grounded in the physical world, in harmony with Mother Nature.
  • Regenerating health. 
  • Also the querent may be involved with important people who are Aries or Capricorn who can present new opportunities that inspire new focus on dietary and financial health or any aspects of their life.
  • The Queen of Disks, states that you are pioneering (Aries) new ways  that are nurturing  and stabilizing (Capricorn). Practical beauty, health, and fulfillment are easily established in this persons life.
    When this card is Ill Dignified:
    • This personality type can be dull, servile, foolish drudges rather than workers.
    •  Life for them is purely robotic and they can't seem to rise above their appointed lot.
    The general advice of this card:
    • Is to go forward quietly without overt attacks upon existing situations, i.e. go with the quiet natural flow of your personality in all situations.

    Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- Knight of Disks & The Night Sun Tarot- King of Pentacles

    The Thoth Tarot- KNIGHT OF DISKS & The Night Sun Tarot- King of Pentacles.

    The Knights of Thoth Tarot, and Kings of more traditional tarot all rule from Chokmah, the 2nd Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, that is both Wisdom and the Will to Force. He is the idea of male polarity AND THE WILL TO FORCE OF HIM IS REPRESENTED AS THE KINGS.

    Now there are those who think that Male came first, or that Female came first. This argument is because of our short-sighted physical perspective on sexuality. The startling fact to some, especially the posturing male, is that if you come up with the idea of male, then you come up with the idea of female at the same moment.There is no male concept without the concept of female and vise versa. So the argument of whom came first, is null and void when talking about the Supernal Triangle (The upper Trinity).

    The Will to Force (Chokmah) and the Will to Form (Binah) are a figure eight of united  spheres, formed from One Energy, to produce the Will - To - Be. Although they are represented on the Tree of Life, as communicating on one path, it is in reality a fiqure 8 of one infinite energy, that is One Energy, in 2 different actions, cooperating.  Therefore, it is another way of saying the mating of I and Am produces the idea of Being/Me.  Our concept of sexuality is in need of adjustment before we can understand the One Energy that made itself 2. I like to say that 1-Kether, is creating "other" as A-Chokmah and M-Binah, and has realized "I AM", i.e., existence.

    Chokmah is the second Sephira and thus is the force behind the four Deuces. The Personification of that force is represented in the four Knights/Kings. In other words, Chokmah's will to force, is at its most concentrated and dense elemental form on Earth, such as the most elemental form of electricity which we call lightning.

    The Knight/King OF DISKS or Pentacles:
    Represents the Lord of the wild and fertile land and as such is the King of the elemental spirits of earth such as the Gnomes. 

    The zodiacal attributes to both the Thoth card and Night Sun Card, are the last Decan of Leo and the first two Decans of Virgo. Being that the Knight/King of Disks/Pentacles is the most dense manifestation of the Elemental Yod force (Fiery Father), he is the force behind fruition, and  growth but tends to be slow. The Knight's or King's fertility is represented in this card by the use of the Stag antlers on the Helm of the Thoth Knight. The understanding of the mythical animal images of the middle ages, comes in handy here, as the Stag is the beast that ate the serpent, ( received wisdom) and in so doing sheds it's skin, and any illness or old age, just as a serpent does.So to make a long and wonderful story short, the Stag represents the Knight's power to regenerate  as does the organic matter it is a symbol of.

    Many of us have seen the Fire of Earth, in its volcanic upheavals; However, how often do we realized that Volcanic upheavals are Earth regenerating itself? Thus is the Fire of Earth that is the Knight; fleeting yet is also the cycle of rebirth. On Earth, when lightning strikes the Oceans, proteins necessary to life are created.The same fruition is implied by the corn or fruitful plane that his horse is grazing on. Thus he carries a flail, used in grain harvest and his disk/shield is that of solid nutrition.

    The Thoth Tarot-The Knight of Disks, represents the fiery part of Nature. Related to the phenomena of earthquakes, mountains and gravitation but also to agriculture and the activity of Earth that produces Life. In this case the heavily Armored Knight has his helmet thrown back, indicating a more placid state rather than violence.
    His horse has all its  feet on the ground, rather than the leaping horses of the Other Thoth Knights, and is nibbling the grasses. All of which point towards a solid standing in nutrition, which the Disk/Shield represents,and the Earthly activity of producing Life.This battle King, can now rest and reap the just rewards of his sowing.

     Since, the Knight of Disks or King of Pentacles rules from 21st degree of Leo to the 20th degree of Virgo, he is thus concern greatly with agriculture. This puts Mercury in the constellation of Virgo which implies Intelligence; a cleverness that is very Natural in the animal world. This "Salt of the Earth" personality is very complex but well knit and if their contact with the Earth is a healthy one--such as agriculture provides, or a Medical Doctor or Herbalist, this is usually a well-defined persona. However, if they are forced into a world of technology, or imaginative stretches beyond instinct, they tend to be ill defined. Hence, The Thoth Knight of Disks or Night Sun- King of Pentaclesrepresents the physician, the healer, and the farmer. A solidly natural personality who rides through fertile land.

    To a Hermetic Qaballist, The Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles, represents the most condensed form of the Yod Force, or elemental life force which brings about fruition and growth. The Thoth Knight's Stag horned helmet, and the crescent horns on the shoulders of the King of Pentacles, represents regeneration.

    As a Personality, the Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles, represents a mature man who is a healer, a doctor, a good mathematician, and/or crafts-persons who is concerned with quality and security. An older man that others rely on and often confide in, trust and seek advice from. Such a personality tends to be seen as lethargic in tenancy as well as, very stable and dependable.

    In Mythology, the Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles, represents Baal the mountain god  who handed down laws from the mountain tops to those who dared to climb up and receive them. He was often seen as stern, authoritarian, heavy, tenacious, reliable and practical.
    The Thoth Knight of Disks, of the Qabalistic Thoth deck, is known as the King of Pentacles in many other tarot decks. Traditionally because the pentacle is the symbol of the ascended man, this card also represents Mastery of Abundance and Prosperity.
    On the Thoth Card, he is the harvester, who with threshing tool in hand, is prepared to harvest all that he has cultivated. With the capacity to manifest inner world skills into the outer-world, he is determined to achieve harvest in the areas of health and finances.
    The Knight of Disks or King of Pentacles, is also considered the Physical Doctor, the Healer  who is focused on health care, and a concern for body health.

    Qabalists know that form must be in constant motion to be animated, yet it also must be stable (gravity) and often reconstruction of the motion of Life requires a destructive element to "de-construct" before reconstruction can be created;  However, destruction must be held to a point of healing rather than destruction for destruction's sake.
    Therefore, in the area of health he monitors his diet (horse eating grains) and in the area of finance, (his large coin shield) he creates and protects that which is financially necessary.

    The horned helmet, suggests he is a diagnostician who determines what is necessary in order to manifest abundance. Leo the lion appears on his shield, representing the creative aspects of manifesting harvest.  He is steadfast, reliable, accomplished, the epitome of success, such as the illustration of the Celtic god Cernunos.

    All in all, The Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles is a slow, stalwart, dependable, person of good physical strength and health. If the Reader is using a Celtic Cross pattern in their reading, and this card falls in the 4th position ("What is beneath you") this can mean Earthquakes or mountainous obstacles are to be encountered by the querent. But again, this depends on the surrounding cards (such as in House and Home--the seventh position especially so if a 7 of Disks is there.) otherwise, good health, good food, and a good physician are represented. If the Knight of Disks falls in the 7th position of House and Home, we have a masculine stalwart, dependable, Romantic presence in the querents life. 

    The upside down triangle with bar, is the symbol for the element fo earth. The upward pointing triangle with bar is the symbol for the element of air. Therefore, the assigment of the Fire of Earth as the Knight of Disks, is not assigned to the Night of Sun Tarot as his King is Air of Earth. Rather, the Night Sun Tarot assigns this Fire of Earth to his Knight of Pentacles, who is represented as the Prince of Disks, that Crowley assigns the Air of Earth to.

    As all depicted on all of Fabrio Listrani's Kings and Queens, his King of Pentacles wears the crown of thorns, implying his sacrifice to the toils of rulership.
    Around this fertile King, all dressed in fecund-green the King rests his hands on his Pentacle throne. Around him sprouts his harvest, and he is reaping his sown pentacle/coin.
    The crescent moon-horns, depict his union with the cycles of the Moon and the Divine Feminine.

    Top center of this King of Pentacles card, is the Hebrew letter-Heh, meaning  window or sight, a letter Crowley assigns to the Emperor card.

    When the Thoth Knight of Disks or the King of Pentacles card is thrown during a divination:

    • It's a good time to concentrate on physical and financial health.
    • Use your diagnostic abilities to manifest harvest in your life.
    • For woman this Knight of Disks, represents the dynamic assertive part of themselves, the inner animus  that wants to sustain abundance in health and fiances.
    • Disks as a suit, represent the earth sign months of Capricorn ( December 21-January 21), Virgo ( August 21-September 21), and Taurus (April 21- May 21) which may indicate particular people with those signs who may assist you in opportunities for harvest in you life.
    • The Querent is entering a period of  Spiritual Fruition.
    • A sense of happy practicality that is reflected in daily life.
    • They are experiencing Self-Knowledge  as steadiness, reliability, and accomplishment in the material world.
    • It implies:
    • a concern for the body and good health.
    • A doctor or herbalist concerned with health.
    • The querent is showing the spirit of fertilization, as joyous practicality, steadfastness, reliability and is an epitome of material success.
    • Generous, courageous but is not prone to seeking adventure.
    • Ordinary activity, in social position, accomplishments, experiencing a success that is relaxed and enjoyed.
    • A mature reliable, dependable, and wise male upon whom others may depend on and with whom they lay their burdens.
    • A dark male, who is both courageous and lethargic in tendencies. However driven in matters of material success. 
    • A good financial provider who understands and likes work knowing it leads to financial security. The querent may be such a person or involved with such a person in their life. The surrounding cards or position in the reading would support this understanding.

    The only negative side to this archetypal personality:

    • Is the personality's total dependency on practicality, tending to make the person plodding, lethargic, and often unmovable.
    • A master of physical matters, but rarely understands emotionalism.

    This archetypal  personality type:

    • Tends to be heavy, dull and preoccupied with material things.
    • They are laborious and patient but show little intellectual grasp of emotional matters, even on  matters that concern themselves. T
    • his Knights success is mostly instinctual and/or in imitation of Nature.
    • Though he may lack initiative, he has the deep smoldering fire of Earth that produces growth.

    In the happiest cases, This Son of Soil's earthy qualities will be directed towards:

    • Romance and material imagination but can be ill defined as over-whelming ambition, superstition, and idle dreaming.
    • Also churlishness, jealousy (dull sort of way) of the Active minds around them which often keeps them stupid in the sense of lack of foresight even in their own affairs.
    • Such an ill dignified personality will find meddling about in petty matters to be their expertise, and they will spoil whatever comes their way.

    Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-10 of Disks: Wealth & The Night Sun Tarot-10 of Pentacles

    The Tarot of EliTHE Qabalistic Thoth Tarot 10 OF DISKS-WEALTH & The Night Sun Tarot-10 OF PENTACLES.

    To an astrologer, the 10 of Disks/Pentacles card represents Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the old "god of commerce and communication" and when he rules in Virgo (an earth sign) material gain becomes so vast it may lose its importance.
    A practitioner of the Qaballah would know the 10 of Disks as Malkuth (Kingdom) in Assiah (Material World) which would represent an embarrassment of riches.
    The divinatory meaning is physical prosperity, abundance and material success.

    Therefore this Hermetic Tarot card suggests a complete wealth, which includes financial security and firm foundations for home and family. Also suggesting that property has been or is being acquired for the founding of  new generations or traditions.

    There is nothing "Higher Consciousness" about this card, as the Swiftness of Mercury, is set about gathering material gain in a total focus and all is at the very pinnacle of objective physical success.  Hence, this cleverness in mind for prosperous activity in money matters, can lead to a certain dullness of mind, a slothfulness brought on by feeling totally secure  and a resistance to take risks.
    The Thoth Tarot,10 of Disks-Wealth:
    Prosperity, wealth, success in the world of finances and physical health.

    1. This card is the sum total of the other 35 minor arcana since complete wealth is a synchronicity of mind, body and soul.
    2. This card indicates that by using your communication skills (Mercury symbols on top three coins).
    3.  And linking them with your healing abilities (the caduceus on the bottom coin).
    4. While listening to your inspiration (the star coins).
    5. You will be able to manifest abundance (the three Hebrew symbols for abundance coins).
     As stated: The Astrological sign for this card is Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the representative planet for communication and organizational skills.  Virgo is the sign of prosperity and abundance  manifested in a tangible way. The Thoth 10 of Disks card indicates that allTen of your conscious states of energy (The Ten Sephiroth of the Tree of Life) contribute to a balanced flow of healing, communication, and organizational skills all accumulating to active function on the physical plane.To the Supreme One, this world is Real, and not the individual simulations that are seen by personalities. It is Real, because it is the accumulation of all the Self-Awareness experiences of the One Collective. To, the personalities, and/or "mask wearers" our own way of identifying ourselves, makes our reality, albeit not a reality for others, we think it real. The operative term here is , "think it", as thought is an individual creation. THE 10 OF DISKS, is Qabalistically called the Lord of Wealth. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah.

     However, impoverished you were taught to believe you are, the 10 of Disks/Pentacles reminds one that your Spirit and body are manifesting abundance.  Obviously this is a card of prosperity and also obviously, it will change, but for now eat, drink and be merry.
    One should also understand that Wealth becomes prosperity when we spend it, or share it with others, as our wealth prospers others and thus ourselves, which is also a form of communication.

    To reiterate, the Sephiroth, MALKUTH is Earth, and the animal mind, that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah.  It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are 3 Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious.

    Assiah is the only Sensual and/or intimate Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life, as they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel the Conscious experiences as "psychosomatic" operators.  But to travel the other Sephiroth as a Psyche without a body (soma), is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight (All seeing Eye), and all the "Five Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I". The senses of the body are also the only way to know of "other", for they surround us in a senses of separation, so that What is All I, can now be I AM Me; a very necessary separation of identity from which to learn discernment. However, contrary to popular opinion, there are more than 5 senses to the physical body. The Yogis of Tantra, claim there are 33 senses to the mundane body; for instance, you have a sense of balance, a sense of self and if you think about it I am sure you'll come up with more.

    What we often fail to understand when viewing all the individual ways a mind is being presented, that there is only One Mind,The Universal Divine Collective Unconscious, and each of us is a unique perspective of Being-Me, presented by that Mind as I AM ME. I AM is the Name of the One and Me is the self-reflections of the One. This Wealth of  Self-Perspectives comes from imagination (The Divine Feminine), and can cause us to "not see the forest through the trees", thereby losing the joy of observing such wealth to fear of being lost among the many and/or rejected by the many.The number 10, when added together, is 1+0=1, helping us to remember that the I AM+Me= I AM, for there is really only One. Other is merely a "self-reflection", and therefore, as we "observe others", is how we observe ourselves. All us, plus the flora and fauna of Earth, and Earth Herself, are a collective of self observations, of the One Mind/Energy.

    Traditional explanation of Tantra. (from Wikipedia)

    The Tantric tradition offers various definitions of tantra. One comes from the Kāmikā-tantra:
    Because it elaborates (tan) copious and profound matters, especially relating to the principles of reality (tattva) and sacred mantras, and because it provides liberation (tra), it is called a tantra.
    A second, very similar to the first, comes from Swami Satyananda.
    Tantra embodies two Sanskrit words: tanoti (expands) and trayoti (liberates)... It is the system by which you liberate or separate the two aspects of consciousness and matter - purusha and prakriti or Shiva and Shakti.
    A third comes from the 10th-century Tantric scholar Rāmakaṇṭha, who belonged to the dualist school Śaiva Siddhānta:
    A tantra is a divinely revealed body of teachings, explaining what is necessary and what is a hindrance in the practice of the worship of God; and also describing the specialized initiation and purification ceremonies that are the necessary prerequisites of Tantric practice.
    Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar describes a tantric individual and a tantric cult:
    A person who, irrespective of caste, creed or religion, aspires for spiritual expansion or does something concrete, is a Tantric. Tantra in itself is neither a religion nor an "ism". Tantra is a fundamental spiritual science. So wherever there is any spiritual practice it should be taken for granted that it stands on the Tantric cult."

    According to Tibetan Buddhist Tantric master Lama Thubten Yeshe:
    ...each one of us is a union of all universal energy. Everything that we need in order to be complete is within us right at this very moment. It is simply a matter of being able to
    recognize it. This is the tantric approach. [ and the Qabalistic Approach; for the Hebrew- Qabalah, translates to "receiving" and that is why Crowley and I know Qabalah as Tantra].

    Which is also the Qabalistic/Gnostic approach.

    The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. However, Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world of spinning atoms, i.e. the centrifugal force of a Spinning of a Disk. All things seem solid in the Kingdom of Malkuth because of the Stability of a Discus/Atom in its spin. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many, as only those who take risks can) and agree with his philosophy.

    It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our inner-conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion. Our Mental/emotional perspectives cast our body forward or backward as a disk is cast in an Olympic game. It takes dedicated practice to cast our body/disk towards it's intended life-target. In magical practice this "hitting the mark" is called Impeccability. Such accuracy requires a soul to manifest many bodies, before it hits the mark! That mark being the expansion and liberation of Life (Tantra) through personal interaction with it. Another meaning of Tantra is "to weave", for that is just what we, a Psyche does. We weave our own observations, self-identities, and/or perspectives into the physical matter around, in and as us.

    Some Souls have gained so much  objective wealth in perspectives, that they can manifest more than one "individuality" at a time.
    As an impeccable Qabalist knows, each new manifested individual Personality is a Fractal made of past personalities, that reside as "memory" in the Soul (point of creative consciousness in the Divine Unconscious called Tiphareth). Therefore, after many life-times, where the Psyche/Soul has experienced the entire Zodiac of personality construction, it can choose to make more than one "Identity Fractal" at one point in time. It seems that the more experience in Self Awareness construction a Soul has, it wants more intimacy with Self.
    This vast materialism is shown on the Night Sun Tarot, 10 coins, as decorated with Pentacles, formed in a circle around the Pentagram, with the crescent horns of the "Bull of Earth", completing the circle. This "bull" could also be  The Great Mother that is "The Holy Cow", Giver of Milk, and therefore, giver of life, that is the Egyptian Hathor, or "cow goddess" from whose teats comes the Milky Way. Either, way, this card depicts the vast wealth of the above and the below, represented as the Pentagram, and fertility of the bull or ox. 
    Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world; it is the Goal Achieved by the Conscious of The Divine Dual Creative; where the I Am becomes I AM ME-the manifested and therefore sensual trinity of the Above Supernal Triangle.
    The sigil for the planet Mercury is shown on the upper left and the sigil for Virgo, is shown on the upper right of this attractive Night Sun 10 of Pentacles.
    Therefore, our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the intimacy of the "As above, so below", i.e. "The Great Work".

    As energy that is Spiral (Spirit), we are "everywhere and no where" at the very moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into the eternity of the Divine Collective Unconscious. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, as "Myself", giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to discriminate my motion by being intimate with form! One must remember that Spirit, comes from the Greek root word Spiro- meaning breath. Therefore, as the "breath of Life", I- Spirit, Am intimate with Life and have the power to animate it as I please.  In other words----"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective and or Self-Definition. I am a Soul/Psyche, a whirlpool of conscious, in the Ocean of Unconscious! This Rocks! I find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually forming reality to my Self Awareness.  To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, a Wealth, and my Soul knows its purpose is to "BE"!

    It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place" of I AM in Time Space! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or Lustful, thereby meriting the suffering or pleasure brought on by physical senses as a punishment (The Lust of Goddess/God built us after all!). Rather, We are the accumulated Wealth of Self Image-Creation (self imagination)--made alive and sensual in order to discern thought through sensual means within the One Mind.  The Divine Creative's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as aSolution- not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct ideas/reality right at the time and place of "seeing/sensing an error"! I Am the Image maker "ME", who can recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"! I AM ME is our individual name of inheritance!

    For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria (numerology) which simply means The First Sephira -that is Kether, is The Above Ocean of Unconscious, that we bring to The Below, the tip of the Whirlpool that is individual consciousness!
    In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal!
    Thus, we are "Lust without the need of result"! Lust being the Divine Frenzy, that is the rhythmic vibration in all things that began as "I Will BE"! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life of Ten dimension and each dimension has 10 Trees! Like I said, we are Fractals, which are copies of the orginal I AM! This makes us all who are manifested in the world of Assiah, "holy Spirits", as we are the manifested collective of all 10 states of Sephirotic intelligence! To not know this, we have only ourselves to blame, for we have forgotten the the fact that "truth is made manifest", which simply means, is created as Self, not as "something else". The 10 of Disk or Pentacles also helps us see that to know that all we see, is another way to be me, is to know the Collective that is Wholeness and to Understand true wealth as Self. 

    When the Ten of Disks is thrown during a reading:
    • The querent is assured of physical prosperity and abundance.  But being a 10, the end of a cycle, means it may be short lived.
    •  The querent is at a physical cross roads where supply is stable but boredom has set in and is non stimulating.
    • However, the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon arrive.
    • Attainment, accumulation, accomplishment, realization.
    • Riches and wealth, completion of material wealth.
    • Family wealth and inheritance.
    • A time of good harvest.
    • The wealthy communication between Soul and body.
    • In the next 10 weeks or 10 months you will experience opportunities for abundance by utilizing communication, organizational and intuitive skills.
    • It also indicates that during this period you will experience a better alignment of abundance on the physical plane where things seem to "go your way".
    • This may also indicate that setting up good communication with the Virgo people in your life will profit you (August 21 to September21) or add to your abundance emotionally, physically and mentally.
    • If Ill defined:
    • Theft and robbery.
    • Gambling.
    • Family misfortune.
    • Loss of inheritance.
    • Legal troubles after a death; or legal troubles and break up of an estate.

    Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 9 of Disks: Gain & The Night Sun Tarot- 9 of Pentacles.

    The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-9 of Disks: Gain & The Night Sun Tarot-9 of Pentacles.

    Astrologically the 9 of Disks/Pentacles Tarot card represents Venus in Virgo which brings great efficiency but with lackadaisical feelings. A card of physical gain that is not really sought.

    To a Qabalist, this card represents Yesod (Foundation) in Assiah (Material World) and promotes the meaning of "good luck" and management. The Divination meaning of this card means inheritance or material gain.

    The 9 of Disks, also symbolizes contentment and peace of mind achieved after working hard.

    Here we have success and a certainty gained from knowing you've made the right choices and done the right thing. Self discipline in the material world. As Crowley stated," everything is for the best in the best of all possible worlds."

    In the Hermetic Qabalah and of the Tarot, the number 9, not only represents completion but also the establishment of balanced and fulfilled Force.
    Here, on the Night Sun Tarot, Venus is also in the constellation of Virgo as the card displays the sigil for Venus-upper left and the sigil for Virgo-upper right. The often cold earthly and indifferent nature of Virgo may be described as the very opposite to Venus. In Virgo, Venus is in her fall, so Venus never fully develops in this sign. However, the indifference and aplomb thus formed, shows good luck in material affairs, favor and even popularity, all without deep emotional commitment.The Central Disk/Pentacle, is always the Central Sun, 6th Sephiroth of Tiphareth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. Here on the Night Sun Tarot 9 of Pentacles, Tiphareth is assigned the "All seeing I" (often depicted as an eye, a sigil for "I") as it is the Christ/Buddha consciousness of the Solar Logos, and/or the Soul.

    The mingling of  both good luck and good management is shown in the arrangement of the Thoth Tarot 9 of Disks. This managed arrangement as an equilateral triangle of 3, pinnacle upward, together and surrounded by a ring, with 6 larger Disks, in the form of a hexagon. All of which signifies the multiplication of the Original Vibration (the Word) and/ or Logos. The Multiplication is always done in 3's, Father, Mother, Child, Maid, Mother, Crone, and Father, Sun, and Whole Spirit; to name a few. This is seen as the three central Disks form this magical pattern of fulfillment. 

    As it descend into material crystallization, the original whirling  energy or spiral energy, gradually exhausts itself, as shown by the other 6 disks taking the form of coins.The marking on these coins are the magical images of the planets. The degrading of the original energy by multiplication, does tend to slow it down and complicate things, thus the human body is a very slow version of the Original Self.

    As a Spiral/Spirit Energy Self, we are depicted as the Qabalistic Tree of Life, the whole image of 8 Sephiroth, being the Original Human/God-Man, Adam Kadmon, crowned by the Supernal 3, who when multiplied into many states of energy conscious, and/or diversities of the One pattern, becomes most complicated indeed! Each of us is a complete Tree of Life multiplied by the Cubed number 3.  So it is okay that you are complicated, just getting the complications all in complimentary patterns, working together on all planes of energy consciousness,( which is called 'wholeness and/ or Holy Spirit) seems impossible, yet this cooperation can be achieved by one realization at a time. Baby steps, are motion and motion, no matter how small, is sacrosanct to Life.

    Therefore the 9 of Disks/Pentacles, represents what assists us in knowing that success in the material world is not the "end all" of security. Rather, knowing thyself is the True Security, a strong foundation from which to create all good fortune. When each of us completes the realization of the Self, that is, "above all things, know thyself", even death is known as good fortune! This understanding of  " completion and renewal", i.e. death, may take some contemplation by the fearlessly diligent student but until one does, the lowly animal - survival mind shall always rule the body and thus breaking the pattern of cooperation that manifests Love, and wealth as the true state of Mind.

    In the Tarot 9 of Disks or Pentacles, The Force in fulfillment- balance of the nine is very apparent in this card.Here in the Night Sun Tarot, the coins are balanced in a form of 2 Pentagrams, with a central "I" bringing it all together.  Fertile vines, and sacred geometry, all indicate a "wholeness" of synchronicity.

     The descent into matter tends to complicate the image, as all weaving (Wyrding) tends to make it hard to find the original thread that began the tapestry. FYI ---the Thoth Deck Disks are called Pentacles or Coins on most other decks. Aliester Crowleyfelt that coins or pentacles, just didn't get the idea across, that all matter is made out of "spinning atoms", and that the spin of a disc balances it into a seeming stability, that slowly degrades.

    The 9 of Disks/Pentacles reminds the Qabalist that it's all about perspective. If we look at ourselves from the lofty perch of the Soul (Tiphareth-Beauty) all is easily seen, understood and adjusted, in the daily life of the physical person that the Soul's Vibrations produce; However, if we are looking up from the Earthly presence towards our incomprehensible Soul....we tend to only see what we are trained to see. The necessary perspective changes to achieve this Psyche enlightenment of Looking downward at ourselves, is why the Adept studies the Tree of Life and achieves personal initiation on each state of energy conscious called Sephiroth;  To Know Thyself requires us to look beyond ourselves which is a many step perspective change!

    When the Thoth 9 of Disks-Gain or the Night Sun Tarot-9 of Pentacles, is thrown during a reading, it implies:
    • That in 9 weeks or 9 months the querent has experienced or will experience an inheritance, and/or much increase in money.
    • 9's are the number of completeness, so complete realization of material gain is suggested here.
    • According to the dignity inferred by the accompanying cards, this could also be covetousness, treasuring of goods, and maybe even theft and underhanded waggery.
    • Spiritual activity is implied here also, but Disks are Earth-Material so spiritual awareness maybe gained in the spiraling of the downward flow of Force and Form, but very slowly and may be hardly noticed.
    • A complete manifestation of  material gain.
    • Success in the material world.
    • The 9 of Disks, also symbolizes contentment and peace of mind achieved after working hard.
    If ill dignified by the accompanying cards, certain character flaws make their appearance such as:
    • Covetousness, treasuring of goods, and there may even be theft or knavery involved.
    • It then means lack of Self-discipline will keep you from gaining in the material world. 
    • However, this is rare and most often this card represents a personal accomplishment gained by following your own path. It shows us that by disciplined focus, we can design our own fate.

    Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-8 of Disks: Prudence & The Night Sun Tarot- 8 of Pentacles.

    The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- 8 of Disks-Prudence & The Night Sun Tarot- 8 of Disks.

    The 8's of Qabalistic Tarot:

    As anyone can tell from past blogs, this series of Thoth Tarot card descriptions is generalized to the number of the Cards, with brief explanations of their foundation and content.
    The Four 8's are attributed to Hod (8th Sepiroth--Splendor) on the Tree of Life. Since Hod is in the same plane as the 7's (Netzach-victory) the same weaknesses and/or defects that are in the 7's will apply. Yet, in a sense, the alleviation of the 7's weakness is also being applied in the 8's. One might say that the mischief has been done  and there is an action against it---much like white blood cells attacking a intruder in the blood stream; not a total cure but a beginning in that direction.

    The Thoth-8 OF DISKS: PRUDENCE
    Astrologically this card is placed as the Sun in the constellation of Virgo. Hence, the planetary aspect here is a very practice one that tends to cause concern with small details.
    Qabalistically, 8 of Disks (8 of Pentacles in other decks)  is Hod (splendor) in Assiah (the material world). Prudence in the Material world is no great virtue, for this is the tendency to focus only on the small details while ignoring the bigger picture.
    The divinitory meaning of this card is, skill, prudence,  and over carefulness about small things, at the expense of the great.
    However, on the positive note, the 8 of Disks also shows the abilities to work steadfastly on new projects, and proceeding to others later on.  Often this is called the Master's  Craft card, since it is about focused will, skill with energy and material matters and is the kind of objective focused state needed for esoteric meditations. It is about craftsmanship that thinks of the work itself rather than the goal of reward.

    The eight of Disks and/or Pentacles represents talent, skill, craft, learning, and practical ideas being turned into a profitable profession. The card itself symbolizes the harvest tree where hard work and skill have become fruitful and now you only need await the ripening of the harvest.

    Therefore, in a positive note, the 8 of Disks/Pentacles implies skillful manipulation of physical material with talented fingers along with prudent thoughts and the wisdom to coordinate both.However, there is a negative note as well, for, as shown on the Night Sun Tarot 8 of Pentacles, it can also mean avidity and poor advice. Here, the advice from the shamanic feminine figure is given to the male shamanic figure, which seems to intrigue the male.

    Fabio Listrani's "earth Shamans" all wear one horn, the crescent symbol of the Divine Feminine, the golden coins depict the Sun like energy of the Divine Masculine. The predominant color of green, signifies the element of earth. Unlike the Thoth card, the Pentacles are in the left hand and right hand tree, forming an arch showing the balanced union of the left hand and right hand path. The Thoth Card depicts the tree made of serpentine weaving, showing careful attention to details, and the equilibrium of male force (right hand path) and female form (left hand path). Both ultimately reach the same conclusion of equal and opposite, achieving a balance.

    The Sun sigil is on the upper left of the Night Sun Tarot, while the sigil for the constellation Virgo, is on the upper right.

    At the top of the Thoth Card, is the Sun sigil and at the bottom of the harvest tree is the astrological sigil of Virgo. Virgo reminds us that by attending to details and utilizing our organizational skills, we shall repeat the just harvest. Trust in your skills is the foundation of this harvest rather than the need for control; only a deep abiding trust in your skills will reap the just reward as harvest follows the ordered skill of the prudent mind. Prudence and wisdom are qualities of patient skill , not pushing to make things happen nor holding back or resisting. Also implied, is to avoid listening to the advice based on avarice from others.

    On the Thoth Tree, the coins or pentacles have blossomed; the patient skill of wisdom and prudence has prevailed and the successful harvest is shown by the protective leaves that hold back chaos. There is no place for doubt in this card it is a manifested Trust of skill. The Night Sun's Pentacles or coins, seem to be attached to the barren tree, rather than grown from it, and therefore, enforcing the "bad advice of avarice".

    The  Tarot 8 of Disks/Pentacles, marks the turn of the tide, as the 7 of Disks/Pentacles, was the fullest possible establishment of matter transformation that has become a failure of the great structure of the 4's. This is simply because of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which many call Entropy. In this law, matter proceeds from order to disorder and in the 7  matter has done so. In the 8, disorder begins the renewing process that proceeds into a step by step process of purity. In our organic world of light, compost supports the healthy seed; much as the process of the 7 to 8, in Hermetic Qabalah.

    In the Hermetic Qabalah and the Tarot, the number 8 represents Hod-Splendor, and is very advantageous, as it represents Mercury in its highest spiritual aspect. This is well, as Mercury both rules and is exalted in Virgo which belongs to the Decan and is governed by the Sun. Therefore, the Thoth Deck 8 of Disks, signifies loving intelligence applied to material matters. This especially true in engineering and agricultural matters. The 8 of Disks/Pentacles card can also be called the card of the Master craftsman.

    As Crowley so eloquently put it. " Note that Virgo is Yod, the secret seed of Life, and also the Virgin Earth awaiting the Phallic Plough."
    This may sound unseemly to some, however, the Sun is the Phallus to Earth, as the Sun ejaculates its energy to the material womb that is Earth, so Crowley's explanation makes perfect sense. 
    In Qabalah, Masculine force is Electric, expressive, while Feminine Force is Magnetic, receptive. Since every Sephiroth on the Tree of Life is Androgen, that is both expressive and receptive, the student often becomes confused about the gender attributed to the Sephira. This confusion is easily dispersed by the understanding that the Divine Twins, as shown on the Thoth Sun card, are dancing in every state of conscious energy on the Tree of Life. The rhythm of the dance may be "more active" or "less active" , "more receptive" or "less receptive"but the motion of Force and Form is always there. Hence, to the Qabalistic Magi, God is neither male nor female, rather Hermes and Aphrodite dance as one and are called Hermaphrodite.  More to research for those who dare!

    To continue, the interest of the 8 of Disks, is a more common interest, as the Sun in Virgo suggests birth, fruitfulness, and supply. Thus, the Disks are arranged as flowers and fruits of a Tree, whose trunk is the "Middle Pillar" with both left hand path (female) and right hand path (male) fructification represented as eight flowers; the figure eight is also the figure of feminine form and masculine force in union, i.e. the "Twisted Circle of One who is Two" and/or a Mobius loop. All of which reinforces the notion of birth and fruitfulness of a Great Tree whose solid roots are in fertile land.

    When the Eight of Disks or Pentacles, is thrown during a reading, the querent shall be or will be experiencing:

    • The fruits of their labor in the next or past, 8 weeks or 8 months.
    • This card suggests skill, cunning, and prudence in material matters.
    • However, there is a tendency to be "penny wise and pound foolish", which is being over-careful in small maters at the expense of the great.
    • Thus, there is a gain of ready money in small sums, rather than the larger gain suggested in the 9. 
    •  Industriousness, especially in land cultivation is also suggested by the 8. 
    • The ability to accept struggle as the means of learning and diligently applying what is learned, is also suggested by this card.
    • In the Western culture, we are often taught that "smartness and talents" are inherited, this is a fallacy invented by the lazy, for What looks like talent, is more often than not, a long struggle before accomplishment.
    • Those who have the ability to struggle have the emotional power to accomplish anything. 
    • However, there are those who reincarnate, and bring their past diligent struggle, as talented performance in this life, but still, it was a diligent struggle "once upon a time".
    • That in the next 8 weeks or 8 months you can experience the harvest of your skill, prudence and wisdom. All from your organizing or attending to details.
    • This card may also mean that all that you have learned or are learning will facilitate new growth in a skillful financial endeavor in the next 8 weeks or 8 months especially if you pay attention to details.
    • This financial endeavor could involve Virgo people ( August 21 to September 21) or harvesting a fertile relationship with important Virgo people in your life.
    • This card represents a wise state of mind that operates from a foundation of prudence, centered integration, and order rather than from chaos.
    • That Prudence is a short term focus on the small details, baby steps rather than a long term goal.
    • After about 8 wks or 8 months, there will be good influences to start a utilizing your learning as a skill in business or career.
    • This is a card of "talent" (which means hard work on the details) and shows the possibility of turning a skill  or talent into a profession, or money earned.
    • The 8 of Disks card is about turning all that learning the details, into beginning a profession; from student to  beginning Master Craftsmanship.
    • 8 of Disks also calls for caution, for Prudence overdone, resists change and the ability to move with the changes, is success but to resist change can only bring failure.
    • The important message here is to  at first pay attention to the details and then focus on the big picture to insure success.
    • If ill dignified by the accompanying cards, avariciousness, mean-hoarding, and lacking in enterprise, are suggested.

    On the Qabalistic Tree of Life of the Hermetic Qabalah, the 7's of Tarot are attributed to the Sephiroth- Netzach (victory) which is very low down on the Tree of life. This is a doubling of the unbalanced nature of conscious energy as consciousness is now descended deeply into illusion while engaged in a frantic struggle with self-identity. Netzach pertains both to Venus and Earth, and the Heavenly Beauty of Venus is now debauched by Matter.  The four 7's bring no comfort as they are the denigration of each element, exposing the utmost weakness in every case.

    The Thoth-7 OF DISKS : FAILURE
    [Pentacles in other decks]
    Astrologically this card is  Saturn in Taurus which indicates a great deal of work with very little reward.

    To the Qabalist, this is the 7th Sephiroth-Netzach in Assiah, the influence of Victory in the Material World....but this is a small victory after extreme effort.In other words the rewards aren't worth the effort. Hence, this card seems to be as all 7s, which means very little good to be gained in the material world from continued emotional and mental effort.However this "little gain" is deceptive, since this card is more about fear of failure than failure itself.  Therefore, the 7 of Disks reminds us that trying to defeat our own fear is what is holding us to a snails pace, if any pace at all, towards our success.
    Fear is not to be defeated, by trying to defeat it, for it is made of the "first material" of creation, called "thought". Therefore, trying to suppress or defeat fear is futile, as that just means you are using your own thoughts and emotional force against you. Rather, Fear is to be understood as a means of   focusing on the issue; fear tells us to use our power of observation like a type of magnifying glass. Again, Failure is not the problem, it took Edison over 999 failures to make a light bulb, showing that previous failure did not stop the invention of  the successful one thousandth try, it only caused him to look at different approaches to the problem!
    Hence, the 7 of Disks reminds us that it is our own fear, that tricks us and leaves us to believe we are incapable. 

    The 7 of Disks also reminds us that we must keep on our projects, they will be completed by perseverance with in 7wks or 7months.

    The aware consciousness knows that fear is only for the sharpening of the senses so that we can pay attention to the details; it is not for avoidance. Therefore failure tells us what didn't work, not to stop working on solutions!  To listen to our fear of failure, as if something serious and life defeating just happend, is to abandon labor and sink everything into sloth. 

    The 7 of Disks, implies that we are fooling ourselves by fearing discomfort, which is also fear of failure and/or vulnerability. Hence,
    we become inactive, passive, and fallen. The Fear of failure states," it is better to lay here on the damp earth of wept for dreams than stand up and pry your feet from the resistant mud of
    assumed comfort". [Eli]
     [Mike_kiev | - <a href="">Man stuck in mud</a>]

    Again, what I say to my own sub-conscious... consciously- is , " If you wish to speak to me you must stand for I'll not kneel to your weakness!"....I then slog on to a new day where success awaits me. Thanks to the 7 of Disks-Failure, I am reminded that its not far now...your still breathing so get on with it!
    Therefore, The Thoth Tarot- 7 of Disks is about putrefaction, a very important alchemical paradigm that precludes purification. Therefore, the number 7, Netzach-Victory (7th Sephira on the Tree of Life) has an enfeebling effect; However, in this case it is made even more enfeebled by the influence of Saturn in Taurus.

    The Thoth cards interesting disk emplacement is in the gemantic figure Rubeus, the most ugly and menacing of the 16 figures. ( 777-And other Qabalistic writings of Aleister Crowley).

    There is an atmosphere of blight about the card and since leadened Saturn, in Taurus brings very little gain on earth, with a great deal of effort, it is blighted in many ways To carry on this idea. The back ground of the card suggests cultivation and spoilage and Netzach's four colors are blotched with indigo and reddish orange, which again promotes the concept of spoilage ( the reddish orange, on the card is faded by processing). Saturn's disks are lead in color and suggest bad money.

    *NOTE: In the Night Sun, Golden Dawn, Rider-Waite Tarot Decks, the Disks of the Thoth Deck are known as Pentacles. In other older medieval tarto decks they are often shown as coins.

    What I have most often found is that it is the individual's Fear of Failure that is the stumbling block to success here and that somewhere in their emotional past the idea that they were/are unworthy of success, is an underlying personality construct.  Other people have reacted so emotionally to loss, that gain itself is a threat as they might lose it and therefore will not now dare to desire it.

    The Night Sun Tarot-7 of Pentacles, emphasizes what many of us don't realize, that we are both Force and Form (The study of Force and Form is the Qaballah) and that our Spiritual and/or Mental Force runs our physical form. Therefore, to think ill of ourselves is to perform ill as a form. Since the most powerful Force of our Mental Self is "E-motion" that the Divine Creatrix- Imagination, forms into manifestation, you are held to no actions of the past if you are willing to imagine a new future. Imagine yourself -Well, wealthy (money raining down all around you) etc. and you will set a force filled course of prosperity for your physical form. Make a forceful chant such as," North, South, East and West, my prosperity flows to me which ever way is best!", do this morning, noon and night or the instant you worry about income. By taking action to change your mind, you are being Spirit in motion. Spirit is action; a forceful energy-in-motion, while the "lizard brain" is a fear based survival mind who reacts to environmental present-actions with past fear and in error calls those reactions, present emotions.
    Above all things know thyself! You are a Psychosomatic- Force that operates a Power-Tool--known as "your body"! This power tool-body, is stressed as the Image of the Night Sun Tarot-7 of Pentacles. Here the 7 major "swirling energy centers" and/or Chakras, are shown as the Pentacle coins. The background of this card is covered in sacred geometry, with the body in the pose of the Adam Khadmon, "Supreme Being" that is the Whole and Real Person.

    The sigils for both Saturn and Taurus are displayed on the upper left and right of the Green Tarot card. Green, in this case, is the color of fetile earth. His chakras, are lettered in Hebrew rather than the traditional Sanscrit writing of the Yogis.

    The Thoth-7-of Disks: Failure.
    Physical failure, labor thwarted, and everything is sunk in sloth. While the Night Sun Tarot applies to this card  a pause in the garden of financial, health, and physical relationships.  Here, is the time to spiritualize matter, and relax in success before progress. Here, Fabio Listrani may be illustrating the "secret of putrefaction", where matter is in a moment of repose before becoming pure enought to transform to the next alchemical change.

    Take a long look at the Thoth card. Its astrological sign is Saturn in Taurus. The planet Saturn is symbolic of constricted, restricted and/or the feeling of limited energy.  Taurus is representative of productivity and achievement. The two together tell us that our productivity and achievement are being restricted and limited by a leadened thought process, i.e., our fear of failure.This aspect of Saturn and Taurus can also be seen in the coins as the helmet symbol is Saturn and the Bull is Taurus. Hence, predicting a feeling of failure that interferes with our mundane financial situation. The Helmet is also a symbol of a conscious constriction of which fear is indicative of. This card also indicates a loss of capacity to inspire ourselves or others.

    Yet there are contradictory meanings here since this is a pause in the force of our creativity, this could also be just waiting for the fruition of our efforts and is a time of repose and waiting for results. Seeds of new growth are being planted here and the querent may be waiting for a better and more rewarding path to be discovered, which seems to be the artistic interpretation of the Night Sun Tarot 7 of Pentacles.

    As stated, Netzach, is the 7th Sephira on the Tree of Life and is called Victory. As the ruling intelligence of the 7's; victory implies an exhausting  contest won by supreme effort.  This enfeeblement of exhaustion is accentuated by the fact that the 7 of Disks is ruled by the influence of Saturn in Taurus.  Saturn being a heavy, dark, primeval ( Known as the "Old King " of the gods) planet, is made even heavier, more obstinate and plodding by the influence of Taurus, yet the moral character is firm and obstinately capable of overcoming obstacles' by sheer determination.

    As artistically shown by the 7 of Disks card, in mundane affairs, Saturn in Taurus is not very good with money matters. It is indeed, financial failure. In fact, unless very well dignified, money comes slowly or just wastes away. However, all Is not lost for the very plodding, obstinate and determined behavior suggested by this card, can save one from financial ruin by their natural careful, saving  and quite frugal character.


    When the 7 of Disks-Failure or the 7 of Pentacles, is thrown during a reading, the querent will be or has been:
    • Experiencing for the past or future seven weeks or seven months, unprofitable speculation and employment. 
    • Loss of apparently promising fortune with little gain from much labor. 
    • A cultivator of land is suggested, yet very little gain thereof. 
    • There is also suggestion of slight and isolated gains that bear no fruit, though seemingly promising such.
    When very well dignified by the accompanying cards,
    • There is a suggestion of honorable work undertaken for the love of it, without desired reward.
    • The honorable work being reward in itself.
    • This is often called Lust with out the need of result and in this case, it is about the love of physical work where the perfected craft itself is the reward.
    • In the next 7 weeks or 7 months, the more rewarding path will be discovered and the period of waiting is over, or you will have to confront your fear of failure in the next 7 weeks or 7 months in order to plant anew and reap a more generous harvest in your future.
    • It is time to move through old fears and self defeating thoughts of past failures whether they have been experienced in the past 7 weeks, 7 months or when you were 7 years old.
    • Fear is constricted energy focused on a point of I Am...I Am is our inherited God Voice within our Super-conscious. It declares the direction of our energy such as, I Am sad...I Am happy...I Am poor..I AM wealthy..In the infinite realm of possibilities, I AM is the foundation of all creation and creation is a restriction of energy to form a "point in time". Which we are! Since you have been given the God-like freedom to declare yourself any way you like...repeating concepts of failure tell your Greater Self that you demand failure as an expression of your likeness! Knowing this:
    •  It is recommended that for the next 7 weeks or 7 months that your repeat declarations of Wealth. How about; "I Am The Will and the Way. I Am the Wealth and I own the Day!". Say this at least 7 times a day for 7 weeks or 7 Months. I've been doing it now for the past 7 years and my days flow in a joyous dance of discovery. I highly recommend that you remember yourself as a I AM Magic Sorcerer from the Source of all Creation who has been given the power of emotional focus to create your reality.  This is a great power---use it gratefully!

    Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 6 of Disks -Success & The Night Sun Tarot-6 of Pentacles.

    The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot: 6 OF DISKS-SUCCESS & The Night Sun Tarot- 6 of Pentacles
    [ Crowley's Disks represent Pentacles in other decks]

    As always, the 6's are about a balance of trinities which makes them powerful and stable in dynamic movement. The Thoth 6 of Disks card represents physical attainment, accomplishment and success. The Thoth 6 of Disks and Night Sun Tarot- 6  of Pentacles,represents the harmonious energy of Earth, that the balance of polarities have made fruitful, the Son, Father, and Grandfather aspects of electric force and the Maid, Mother, and Crone aspects of magnetic force....It is Born! This fruitful birth, is shown as one red apple on the Night Sun Tarot Card.

    It is important to remember that this is earth, and gravitational forces will pull this successful creation down into itself, where everything becomes slow and heavy, so this success is temporary but enjoyable just the same.Therefore, on the earth are shown 6 coins of pentacle centers, in a grouping of 3's.

    There is a great beauty here that comes from the balances of mental, emotional, and physical energy enhanced by the higher conscious states of Self that are represented in the 6th Sephira/ Beauty/Tiphareth; the Christ/Buddha consciousness. Being Beauty feels great!

    This Beauty is not determined by fashion, nor culture, this is the Beauty that created me so it could be me ! The great inner beauty of synchronicity; the harmony radiating from the Divine Creative, through the Soul/Psyche and into the form.

    Generosity is shown here, as you now have enough success in physical health, finances, and emotional balance to assist others in their success.

    Astrologically, this card is Moon in Taurus, whose sigils is shown on both Tarot cards, which suggests productivity (Taurus) and a deep inner satisfaction (The Moon) or a deep desire on the subconscious level. The foundation of creation vibrates from the deep passion and desire of I-Will-Be and the deep satisfaction of manifestation as I AM Me! Therefore,The Qabalistic  Tarot-6 of Disks: Success, or 6 of Pentacles, represents the 6th Sephiroth-(circle) of Tiphareth, that is the Full Harmonious embellishment of the Energy of the Element, i.e. Beauty, in the Element of Earth. This card shows even greater embellishment because the Moon is in Taurus which is where the Moon is most exalted. Therefore the Moon is in its highest form and adds the illusion of brilliance; However, the Moon is in transient, so the approach to perfection is not long lasting, as it will be assaulted by the cycles of everyday living.

    Therefore, to achieve success in any endeavor means that we must be in union and/or communication with our inner master and/or The Real Person (Soul) who built us as it's masterpiece. There is only diligence and doing indicated here. Hence, this is where the axiom," Above all things know thyself" really comes into its own. 

    Upon viewing this Thoth Tarot Card, one can see that the Disks are arranged in a Hexagram as a skeletal format. The Center of the illustration glows with the light  of the rose madder of dawn surrounded by three concentric circles of golden yellow, salmon pink, and amber. (due to processing fade these colors are very light). These colors represent Tiphareth (Beauty) fully realized on earth.

    The planetary signs are arranged in their normal attribution but they are shown as disks irradiated by the central Sun which is idolized as the Rose and Cross. The rose has 49 petals, which is the interplay of 7 with 7. Seven rayed stars are the Symbol of the Great Mother Goddess, as is the Moon. Upon investigation, one will find that the Male electric force and the Female magnetic force are never separate even though upon first glance they appear to be so.

    Hence, the formula for success is indicated in the six planetary circles shown on this card:
    1. represents success through discipline.
    2. r reminds us that success is achieve by being open and  flexible to options that may present themselves.
    3. reminds us of our beautiful heart and follow what has heartfelt meaning in our life.
    4.  The Moon indicates success attainable through following the truth of ourselves, by being authentic.
    5. reminds us about how important organized  well timed communication is important to success.
    6. reminds us to express continually steady energy into our professional or personal issues in order to achieve success; the Tortoise vs the Hare scenario, where rapid spurts of energy do not achieve success whereas steady on does.
     The Thoth 6 of Disks/Success suggests that success comes from deep within rather than the superficial without, which is symbolize in this card as the joining of the Western Cross (deep inner self integration) and the opening and blooming of successful achievement ( the Eastern symbol of success- the lotus). This is also implied in the art of the Night Sun Tarot 6 of Pentacles, as on the leaf- barren tree an inner power, created the perfect apple.

    To reiterate; the sixes imply definite accomplishment and the carrying out of a matter.
    However, 6 is not only a number of accomplishment, but also that of the Sun/Son or Christ/Buddha consciousness, thus a certain sacrifice of control is made by the self-conscious. The 6 is also the number of the Dying gods, and means a definite personality deconstruction in order for reconstruction to the original construct, that brings success.

    The 6 of Disks-Success, is aptly named The Lord of Success, as the Moon is exalted in Tarsus: However, this Lord of Success is also shown on the Night Sun Tarot Card, as a great tree, hoary and leafless, yet who succeeded in baring fruit. Here the charm, subtleties, ebb and flow of the Moon are merging with the hard work and deliberate earth qualities of Taurus, ensuring success in business and other earthly matters. Which is implied by the scattering of coins at the base of the tree.
    To a Qabalist, this is Tiphareth (Beauty) in Assiah (the Material World). The natural flow of the Moon's charm and subtleties are united with the hard work and deliberate qualities of Taurus resulting in sure success in business and mundane areas.
    When thrown this card tells the querent that physical attainment and accomplishment is well on its way in 6 weeks or 6 months due to a hard work ethic.

    When Thrown during a reading, the Six of Disks implies: 
    • Material attainment and accomplishment, but with a caveat dealt out by the law of Karma; you'll have to put out effort, to receive back success.
    • The successful cycle of income or security is steady and predictable.
    • The querent is also generous, sharing the wealth, giving people what they are willing to receive.
    •  The Six of Disks also suggests that money owed will be paid and the querent shall receive what is rightfully theirs.  
    • The 6 of Disks card also suggests that money owed will get paid in 6 weeks or 6months, and you will receive what is rightfully yours.
    • Financial help from a friend, or employer will put you back on stable monetary affairs, is also suggested. Because of the necessary flow of wealth into prosperity, the 6 card also suggest that we share our good fortune with others in order to keep the flow going.
    • The card suggests charity, synergy and success, in physical or financial relationships. Hence, the 6 of Disks card is esoterically about the Union of ternary consciousness,the I AM Me of one linked up with the I AM Me of another, suggesting that success is because of united goals. 
    •  This is a all around satisfying card to get in a reading, especially when it lands on a Earthly position in a reading  [Such as House and Home or Beneath you positions of a Celtic Cross reading] or when there are other complimentary Disk cards around it.  The sixes are always a relief from the severity of the fives!

    • Also, prosperity in business, success, gain, power, influence, rank, nobility and rule over people, in material undertakings.
    • Fortunate,successful, just and liberal. 
    • As you may note, The Six of Disks-Success, is because of labor on the part of the individual and is thus earned and not a gift; However, like attracts like so in the next 6 weeks or 6 months gifts may appear.
    • With the Moon who is "Priestess of Illusion" so prominent in this card, it is appropriate to understand that material success alone is an illusion of success.
    • Spiritual Manifestation (which we are) is only Successful when The I AM ME, our trinity, is in balanced communion of correspondence. When the "As above is so below" and where value of Wealth is known as Presence and not material gain.
    If ill dignified by the surrounding cards;
    • Purse-proud, insolent from success or even prodigal.
