The readers of this blog may have understood by now, that the number 7, Netzach (7th Sephira on the Tree of Life) has an enfeebling effect but in this case it is made even more enfeebled by the influence of Saturn in Taurus.
This cards interesting disk emplacement is in the geomantic 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 Saturn in Taurus brings very little gain 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 Golden Dawn and Rider-Waite Tarot Decks, the Disks of the Thoth Deck are known as Pentacles. In other decks they are often shown as coins.
When the Seven of Disks is thrown during a reading it implies that in 7 weeks or 7 months, the querent (the one receiving the reading) will experience or has experienced, unprofitable speculation, and employment difficulties. Little gain for much labor leaving promises for success unfulfilled. Hopes deceived and crushed as apparent fortune is lost. Cultivation of land, with little gain. Sometimes this card suggests slight and isolated gains with no fruits resulting. Depending on the dignity of the accompanying cards, the 7 of Disks-Failure, can also mean honorable work undertaken for the love of it and without a desired reward.
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 dare to desire it.
What many of us don't realize is 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 and to think ill of ourselves is to perform ill as a form. Since the most powerful Force of our Mental Self is Imagination------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!", morning, noon and night or whenever 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 errantly calls those reactions, emotions. Above all things know thyself! You are a Psycho-dynamic- Force that operates a Power-Tool--known as "your body"!
