Tarot Card Comparisons: Tarot of the Old Path and Thoth Deck Tarot- The Five of Pentacles

The Five of Disks-Worry, is the Thoth Deck version of the Five of Pentacles.
The Tarot of the Old Path, illustrates the Five of pentacles in the greens of the earth element it represents. 

Represented on this card is a type of poverty, as a destitute couple stand under a tree bearing five pentacles.

The man's attempt to comfort the woman seems feeble because of his wounded hands that symbolize intense suffering. The ragged clothes imply a wounded soul.

Although the woman's hands cover her face in a gesture of despair, the man's eyes are raised in hope of finding surcease from above.

The Primary meaning of this Five of Pentacles, seems to be that of destitution and hardship while seeking spiritual and material comfort and guidance.

Thoth Deck 5 of Disks-Worry:


By now my readers are familiar with Geburah, a state of energy that is severe in its function. If not, please refer to past blogs.
 Geburah is a corrective state of intelligence, whose severity is  an action towards self assessment, rather than anything karmic.

The Thoth Deck 5 of Disks, is called Worry, often called the Lord of Material Trouble. Here Mercury is in Taurus. The angels of the Decan are Mibahiah and Pooyal
In the Five of Disks, we have Geburah-Severity, influencing the Material World ( Assiah) Please refer to past blogs for more information or purchase the book: Qabalistic Tarot by Robert Wang.

As before stated, "To Worry" something, is translated as the shepherds of Old England used the word, which is a type of strangulation a sheep dog does to a sheep. This strangulating is a biting and holding on to the Sheep's throat,which stops it in its tracks and is just for that purpose..  Thus we understand that the five of disks is so named because it stops all material events, such as profession or monetary gain, dead in its tracks.

Again, Crowley shapes this card as an inverted pentagram, which implies  difficulties. He also placed the geometric figures of the Hindu five Tattvas in the individual disks, each symbolizing a Alchemical element of  Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Spirit. In the Hindu system these are the underlying currents of matter.

Mercurial energy is opposed in Taurian earth, simply because earth has a natural tendency to be stationary  while Mercury is swift motion. Granted it takes a strong Mercury to influence  and unbalance Taurus but Geburah is just that strength.  In fact, instead of Severity, She is sometimes called Strength and causes instability in the five states of matter. This instability is vibrationary, much like an earthquake, yet the Five states of energy ( Five Tattvas) have enough attraction necessary  to hold together on the lover planes, forestalling complete disruption. So this is more like the dog holding the sheep at a standstill,; a kind of intelligence applied to labor.  The Five of Disks thus implies intense strain with long moments of inaction.
 
When the Divination brings up the Five of Disks, the querent is:

  • going through a period of rumination, anxiety or concern...maybe all.
  • Feeling left out of social events because of lack of money.
  • The querent is going through challenges of insecurity, deprivation, and even exclusion. 
  •  Here the mind is focused on survival issues and thus stopping creativity dead in its tracks as a feeling of helplessness and inertia take over.
  • There is a foretelling of material trouble for the next 5 weeks or 5 months. 
This card reminds us that by focusing on what we have lost or don't have, we cannot create more. We need to focus on what we do have, and on the thing we can do; maybe just a baby step is all we have, but that is motion and is enough to get us going again.  The axiom, of ", a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step,".is the solution to this worrying problem that confronts our intellect.
