Thoth Deck Tarot: THE FOUR EIGHTS

By viewing past blogs, you may notice that Hod (8th Sephira) is on the same plane as the 7th Sephira, Netzach. Hod is Splendor and Netzach is Victory, both have the same inherent weakness.
They both are reactionary and short lived.
The 8's are reaction to the damage that has been done by the 7's. Therefore, the 8's seem to be a remedy for the 7's mischief, however, they are more of a spontaneous reaction than a perfect correction. This being so,they still are free of the errors of the 7's.
The Eight of Wands-Swiftness:
Being that this card is attributed to both Mercury and Sagittarius, it represents and ethereal idea of fire. It's almost like this ethereal fire burned up the gross elements displayed in the 7 of Wands. The Cardinal sign, Mercury, represents the swift onrush of the idea of fire. The Rainbow, represents both Sagittarius and the sublimation of the idea of Fire. This card represents a swift response, but not necessarily a well thought out one. In the eight of wands fire is no-longer conjoined with combustion and destruction , rather it more like pure electricity.

The Eight of Cups- Indolence:
Because of Water having very little strength on its own, and Saturn is the ruling planet here, this is a very unpleasant card. Time and sorrow have descended on pleasure and the inherent weakness of water (stagnation) can't act against Saturn's  obstinacy and  opposition to reform. Weary of life, there is a thought that life holds no joy. The emotions have been stretched beyond the capacity of the querent who has lost heart in emotional issues.







The Eight of Swords: Interference.

Since this card is influenced by Jupiter in Gemini, the will is not weighed down by internal stress or external stress, as is the 8 of Cups.
Gemini is and Airy intellectual  sign and Jupiter is optimism and geniality so  as Crowley put it, "It is simply the error of being good- natured when good-nature is disastrous." 
In the world of Swords, this is unconscionable, for the Sharp- wit of the Sword must be wielded with a deft blow, anything else is but a distraction.
This also points out another problem with the 8 of Swords, that of the unexpected interference of pure bad luck! Through out our history we see examples of this, as a small incident brings down empires......"best laid plans of mice and men, etc."

The Eight of Disks-Prudence:

Being a disk, and dealing with money and material matters, this card seems a great deal better than the 8 of Sword and 8 of Cups. Simply because in these material and financial matters, there sometimes is a strength in doing nothing at all. It is prudent to "put something away for a rainy day".
Sun in Virgo, makes this a card of the horticulturist, the person of Husbandry who has planted the seed and must now wait for the harvest. This is not noble, but just a element of  calculation that makes the gamble seem profitable. This person is very affable, (sunny in disposition) but is shrewd maybe even cunning and is nobody's fool. Often, this is the card of the Master craftsman, as slow, prudent work and paying attention to the details, is require to achieve the best result.
The inherent weakness in Prudence is the overdoing of "doing nothing at all". Too much prudent behavior can mean many missed opportunities in the material world, where swift response may bring more profit.
Thank you for your interest and comments . May you live long and prosper!
