Blog followers know by now that Chesed is the architect of the Supernal (upper triangle on the Tree of Life) whose intelligence externalizes the combined potent forces of the upper Trinity. Chesed is the administrator of manifestation and the laws there of.
The Thoth 4 of Disks (Pentacles in Ryder-Waite decks) is the most complete expression of the grounded Chesed forces. This card shows the influence of Chesed in the material world, or the World of Assiah, as our material world is called in the Qabalah.
The Four of Disks -Power, is also called the Lord of Earthly Power, by A. Crowley. The Angels of the Decan are Keveqiah and Mendial. The planet is the Sun and here it is in Capricorn.
The illustration of the 4 of Disks
suggests a fortress implying law and order maintained by undaunted vigilance.
The Disks themselves, are square implying that revolving or motion, is opposite to this card. However, another form of Chesed is in the Key 13 card of the Major Arcana, and it is the Death of stability, so that revolution can continue, 1+3=4, so the number of Chesed lays hidden in gematria/numerology. The Engineer of manifestation, has the power to reorganize it through a process we call Death.
The Four square disks
each contain one of the symbols for the four elements and the walls are strong and seemingly immobile. Yet we have the Sun reborn in Capricorn so new powerful activity is present, and this activity is best shown as the Dancing Skeleton of key 13. What hints at underlying power in the 4 of disks Tarot Card is the orange-yellow color of the card.
Like the eye of a hurricane, The Four of Disks is the "Dead Center" of the Engineer of all manifestation Here at the center, everything looks quite and stable, but violent activity is in the making, so soon that stability will "fly to the winds". Capricorn is the center "where the Sun turns Northward." So the turning is happening in what looks to be stable.
