In Thoth Deck Tarot, the number 10 represents the final issue or manifestation of the Energy. Solidification is final, the force is completely expended and results in the end of a thing or death. This is the natural degradation of Time, making change a necessity to continued progress.
The Celestia rule of this card is Mercury in Virgo, implying that the accumulated wealth is inert substance and must be kept in motion by investment or purchase, rather than accumulation. This futility of material gain is shown by the arrangement of the Disk/Coins on the Tree of Life, where as the smaller 9 coins end at the larger Tenth coin, representing accumulation.
All the disks are inscribed with various Mercurial symbols , with Hod (8th Sephira-Splendor) being the exception as its inscription is that of the cipher of the Sum.This indicates that the only possible release from the impasse produced by the exhausted elemental forces, is the Solar Will of the Father,. This fiery will, animates all things and will vibrate all impasses apart.Thus in the case of Hod, Mercury becomes the Logos, the Word (First Vibration), the Will and the Wisdom.The Arcana of the Eternal Son and Virgo the Virgin, is implied in every way in this cipher of the Sun.
When it comes to the whole card of the Ten of Disks, it is a hieroglyph of the cycle of regeneration. The mundane implications here are that accumulation of Wealth can only progress through willful reinvestment into objects.
The magical implications of this card go deeply into the Mysteries of the Fiery Lingam and the Water- Yoni, the descending female triangle to the ascending male triangle and the magic that comes from uniting the Macrocosm with the Microcosm, producing True Wisdom and Happiness. This will have to be researched by the diligent student, as this blog is not a Tome of Magick.
Suffice it to say, that when this card is thrown, the querent is experiencing riches and wealth. A completion of material gain and fortune, but at a stalemate. The wealth is not progressive and changes must be made. There is old age, a certain slothfulness about this wealth that weighs heavily on the person. This can cause a dullness of mind,that is bright only in money accumulation matters. This is an end of the cycle of accumulation and now a recycle must begin. Like water, wealth loses its life supporting strength when bottled up: it must flow to stay healthy. Wealth becomes prosperity when invested in others. Prosperity recycles back into wealth,. The message in this card, is don't hoard your wealth, reinvest it and all will be well.
