Thoth Deck Tarot: THE EIGHT OF DISKS-PRUDENCE

The Thoth Deck 8 of Disks, marks the turn of the tide, as the seven of Disks was the fullest possible establishment of matter---failure. This is simply because of the Second Law of Thermodynamics, which many call Entropy. Matter proceeds from order to disorder in the Seven,
The number 8 represents Hod-Splendor, and is very advantageous, as it represents Mercury in its highest spiritual aspect, as Mercury both rules and is exalted in Virgo, which belongs to the Decan and is governed by the Sun. Thus, the Thoth Deck 8 of Disks, signifies loving intelligence applied to material matters. This especially true in engineering and agricultural matters. This 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 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. 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". 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-Prudence, 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, 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".
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
If ill dignified by the accompanying cards, avariciousness, mean, hoarding, and lacking in enterprise, are suggested.

I appreciate the correlation with the 7 of pentacles and entropy. I, very basically, associated the second law with the Tower, although I see the numerical association now. Can you tell me if you relate all 7s to entropy of their element and if the 8 corresponds to the third law. Thanks so much for your time, you're a great mental catalyst!

Hi Bella. The number 7 is also associated with Venus, whose metal is copper, noted for its outside beauty but internal corruption.Since the 3rd law deals with a perfect crystal having an entropy factor of 0, something that has never been reached. I would think that 8 corresponds to a transformational process towards purification after putrefaction. Thank you for your interest and comments. You are a stimulation! May you live long and prosper.

I am working on oracles as a way or connecting to the divine. Your work is beautiful and inspiring. So much so that I threw my first spread: The Emperor Change Prudence I am supposed to be writing an application to go to college to develop the idea that the bacterium in our gut (the second brain biologists are calling it) may be where the conciousness exists. You see the bacteria that digests plants provides all sorts of nutrients as they grow in us and they're profoundly healing and the bacteria that digest animal products cause all of the diseases of affluence in western culture. I do mean all and it's science baby. So Eli will you make sure you don't eat any animal prodcuts and eat lots of whole plant foods so I can know you will live long and maybe evolve us all as we prosper. After all once we get all those planty (proventellia) bugs to their greatest mass imagine what will happen. There are three times more bacteria creating us than there are cells. We can already see what's happening as we increase out intake of animals. 1 billion lives are lost each week and millions suffer constantly and our species seems to be running to extinction while wearing burkas of death. But I have great hope.

Hi Tootie. Divination is the way to "receiving" from our other states of Multidimensional Intelligence. I am glad you could both comment on my work and yours. Thanks for the good wishes and update on health. I have my own garden. May you live long and prosper.
