Tarot Card Comparisons: Tarot of the Old Path-King of Pentacles and Thoth Deck Tarot-Knight of Disks

The King of Pentacles, of the Tarot of the Old Path, has illustrated a strong, shrewd, steadfast looking King.
He is dressed in the Green of the ruling element earth.
He protectively holds the symbol of the Pentacle, which is also represented in his crown.
In the language of flowers, the fox glove behind him, implies a man well established in his occupation who is a well established leader and a confident man.

The primary meaning of the King of Pentacles a shrewd, confident man who is well established in his business or occupation. An experienced leader.

The Knight of Disks:
There are no kings in the Thoth Deck Tarot. A. Crowley wished to express the concept that these are battle kings,i.e. knights. Thus the Knights are the Kings of the Thoth Deck  Tarot

Faithful followers of this blog, know by now that Chokmah is both Wisdom and the Will to Force. He is the idea of male polarity. Now there are those who think that Male came first, or that Female came first. This argument is because of our short-sighted physical perspective on sexuality. The startling fact to some, is that if you come up with the idea of Male, then you come up with the idea of female at the same moment.There is no male concept without the concept of female and vise verse. So the argument of whom came first, is null and void when talking about the Supernal Triangle..
The Will to Force (Chokmah)and the Will to Form (Binah) united produce the Will - To - Be (us). which is the way of saying the mating of I and Am produces the idea of Being.  Our concept of sexuality is in need of adjustment before we can understand the One Energy that made itself Two.
Chokmah is the second Sephira and thus is the force behind the four Deuces. The Personification of that force is represented in the four Knights. In other words, Chokmah's will to force, is at its most concentrated and dense elemental form on Earth.

THE KNIGHT OF DISKS:
Represents the Lord of the wild and fertile land and as such is the King of the elemental spirits of earth such as the Gnomes.
The zodiacal attributes to this card are the last Decan of Leo and the first two Decans of Virgo. Being that the Knight of Disks is the most dense manifestation of the Elemental Yod force, he is the force behind fruition, and  growth but tends to be slow.  
This fertility is represented in this card by the use of the Stag antlers on the Helm of the Knight. The understanding of the mythical animal images of the middle ages, comes in handy here, as the Stag is the beast that ate the serpent ( received wisdom) and in so doing sheds its skin, any illness and old age, just as a serpent does.So to make a long and wonderful story short, the Stag represents the Knights power to regenerate  as does the organic matter it is a symbol of..
Many of us have seen the Fire of Earth, in its volcanic upheavals; however, how often do we realized that Volcanism is Earth regenerating itself? Thus is the Fire of Earth that is the Knight; fleeting yet is also the cycle of rebirth. The same fruition is implied by the corn or fruitful plane that his horse is grazing on. Thus he carries a flail, used in grain harvest and his disk/shield is that of solid nutrition.

WHEN THE KNIGHT OF DISKS or King of Pentacles IS THROWN DURING A READING:
  • It implies:
  • a concern for the body and good health.
  • A doctor or herbalist concerned with health.
  • The querent is showing the spirit of fertilization, as joyous practicality, steadfastness, reliability and is an epitome of material success.
  • Generous, courageous but is not prone to seeking adventure.
  • Ordinary activity, in social position, accomplishments, experiencing a success that is relaxed and enjoyed.
  • A mature reliable, dependable, and wise male upon whom others may depend on and with whom they lay their burdens.
  • A dark male, who is both courageous and lethargic in tendencies. However driven in matters of material success. 
A good financial provider who understands and likes work knowing it leads to financial security. The querent may be such a person or involved with such a person in their life. The surrounding cards or position in the reading would support this understanding.Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
