To reiterate, MALKUTH is Earth. that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah. It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are Three Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious. It is the Only Sensual Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life, as they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel the Conscious experiences. But to travel,the other Sephiroth without a body. is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "Five Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I". To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than five...as many as ten, but that is not for this blog to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree while you still support a physical body.
The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world...the Spinning of a Disk. Where the Stability of a Discus is in its spin.I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion.
THE TEN OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah. Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world. (illustration form the text book: THE QABALISTIC TAROT by Robert Wang)
The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This vast materiality is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life, of Ten Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world---------it is the Goal Achieved, by the Conscious of God. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. The Great Work.
As energy that is Spiral, we are "everywhere and no where" at the very moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to discriminate my motion! In other words----"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective.
This Rocks! I find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually. To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind of God...until now!
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or Lustful (The Lust of Goddess God built us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and sensual! God's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an error"! We Rock Dudes and Dudesses! I am the Image maker, who can recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Mage-Nation number "10"!
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic Geomatria which simply means The First Sephira -!- Kether, The Above, that we bring to the Below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal! Thus, we are Lust without the Need of result! Lust being the Divine Frenzy,that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life!
When the Ten of Disks is thrown during a reading, the querent is assured of physical prosperity and abundance. But being a Ten, the end of a cycle, means it may be short lived. Therefore, the querent is at a physical cross roads where supply is stable but boredom has set in and is non stimulating. However, the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon arrive.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
