The Ace of Disks
, is the seed of the Energy Transformation that we call Earth. 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 soil into living forms, long before our scientist "discovered" this very concept called "Therm o-dynamics".
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. However, 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; rather they are the whirling emblems of Star, Planets, atoms etc, all of which are whirling spheres.
There is the new doctrine of Tetragrammaton where He' --the final earthly component, the Daughter, 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," 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 complicate 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 seven sevens adding to 156 (Babalon-The Scarlett woman.) Now showing all this is far too lengthy and complicated for this blog, so I recommend that you get the Book of Thoth, and scroll to pages 210-212 for further information and references.
This central cypher 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-- (This card is a research and meditative must for the Student of Gnosis. )
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; Represents the earthly part of Earth. This 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 too numerous for this blog enumerations, suffice it to say, that the Princess of Disks is Womb hood (Womanhood) in its ultimate projection.
When the Ace of Disks (Pentacles in other decks) is thrown during a reading, the querent is in a years time, experiencing material gain, through labor. Power, wealth etc. The Ace of Disks represent materiality in all senses. , grounded, practical and organized.
When the Princess of Disks is thrown, it represents a young woman with rich brown or red- brown hair and dark eyes,. She 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.
By careful comparison, the student can see how the Princess of a Suit, is Married to the Ace-Seed of an Elemental force.
