The Thoth Deck Two of Disks represents a very important understanding of the Motion of Conscious Energy in building and maintaining life and the second law of thermodynamics. Change is the constant the keeps energy moving. Here, Chokma (wisdom) rules in the suit pertaining to Earth. This is the type of energy appropriate to the Two in its most fixed form. The Two, Divine Twins, or Goddess/God or the Divine Androgyny or even the concept of the Divine Hermaphrodite (Hermes and Aphrodite ) . We may see that the Two of Disks is about how Union of Electric (Male) and Magnetic energy (Female), combine to make a living world but it is also about the Organic Living Organism that eats itself to stay alive (organic matter), here seen as the "serpent that eats its own tail", and Chokmah---The Great Spirit Identity, in mutual combination. As in most of these Thoth Deck Cards, diligent and deep investigative study is recommended as layers of Knowledge go into the weaving of the image.
The doctrine- that change is the support of stability, is shown here in its most fixed form. The State of Conscious energy behind all this Change/Stability is Jupiter and Capricorn. These symbols are inharmonious and the good fortune of Jupiter is somewhat paled and both Capricorn and Jupiter seem to have little influence on this card. But if you study Crowley's [ Atu x] Jupiter is shown as Himself the Wheel that emphasizes the idea of this card. But this is for future study.
In the Two of Disks-Change, two Pentacles, one above the other. are shown spinning in clock wise and counter clock wise motion. Both are symbols of Yin Yang as shown in the Hsiang. Combined, they represent the harmonious interplay of the Four Alchemical Elements.The dynamic energy of the entire Universe is represented here. and as you may see, these cards are much more than pretty pictures.They are Mandala's, showing a "higher" knowledge than is commonly sought by lazy brains that fear discomfort. The knowledge of the Two who became many will reveal why the material world is so important to Spirit.
If this card is thrown during a reading, it represents, pleasant change, the harmony of change, alternating gain and loss, weakness and strength, wandering, and discontented with any fixed condition of things. It is the Union of opposites and is shown by being now elated, now melancholy, industrious, yet unreliable, fortunate in prudent management, yet sometimes unaccountably foolish. Alternately talkative and suspicious. Kind, yet wavering and inconstant. The list is a long one for the Union of Opposites, is what powers the Spinning of the Universal Wheel. A perfect balance is never sought in the Material Universe, as it would become a great solid Diamond...That would be solid without the movement of time/space-electric -magnetic etc. Life cannot make diamonds live. The Alive must be flexible---a state of imbalance that continually moves forward---much like a child who learns to walk by placing one foot before the other, to avoid falling. Cause and Effect, demand imbalance to exist. The Two of Disks reminds us that we are not seeking perfection---Perfection has realized Itself and built us a little less than perfect, so that we can be impeccable (the action of always being true to yourself, also known as Virtue) in our motion, without reaching a state of Perfection that would freeze all Motion. Life depends on imbalance--constant change to even exist. It's OK to be you...impeccably
