Kether, the first Sephiroth, is symbolized
as the Point, The Crown and the Swastika, and if you have been
following the blogs, you know the point to imply completeness unto
itself , without dimension or external definition. The Point is also
attributed to the number 1 which mathematically has the potential for
all other numbers.
To simplify, Kether is the first "I",(Dark Energy Conscious) that reflected upon itself, producing "Am"- Chokma (wisdom)the second Sephiroth, Thus Chokmah is a reflection of Kether. Then recognition that Chokma or "Am" is different than the "I" produced the Third Sephiroth, Binah, who is the "Understanding" of "Me". Thus the Trinity of Creation began. Because of "Self reflection" you will find Three Sephiroth in every Triangle, each a reflection, that reflects upon itself, producing yet another 3 states of energy conscious.
Obviously, your inherited conscious, is bigger than you thoughts.
The Crown symbolizes the Holy Guiding Spirit to which we may aspire.
Swastika, is actually a Buddhist symbol for the "First Swirlings" of
manifestation and represents the swirling motion around the Point that
emphasizes self contained motion.
reiterate, the Four Aces are the Root Force of the Alchemical Four
elements. The Ace of Disks is the Root Force behind physical
manifestation, that governs the motion within the movement of Matter.
The Ace of Disks:
the influence of Kether, "The First Swirling" in matter or the World of
Assiah, as Qabalists call it. It is a card of materiality, but not
necessarily good or evil nor is it necessarily wealth.
card is clothed in the Green of Spring, new growth, and the Aeon of Isis, the
mother of Form who is normally shown as Emerald green, but in the Ace of
Disks the Aeon is shown in spring green after the Resurrection of
Osiris as Horus' Horus being the New Aeon.
The Wings represent the Four
Arch-Angels whose powers balance each other and create stability. The
six wings also represent the number of the Sun and the implied union of
Earth and Sun that creates the Alive.
we know atoms to swirl, and planets to revolve, we know that matter is a
swirling motion and not a static one at all. Thus the card implies
swirls and movement within a stable image. or as Zoroaster
Stated:,"rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud."
The Greek words for " to the mark the beast" appear in the center of
this card. The number 666 also shows in this card, This all shows the
Earth to be the world of the Animal, as its highest form. The God-Mind
(Human) has changed this by expanding the mammalian predator by Genetic
Manipulation, combining the Animal DNA with that of "the angels that
fell to Earth', thus the human body is a G.M.O, for the purpose of
advanced evolutionary work; The Great Work, which is to bring the above
and the below into perfect union. Thus the Beast is seen by some as a
lowly thing, whereas God has seen the Beast to be worthy of Angelic
status. I don't presume to question God in this, I just exalt in my
inheritance. Doing my best to Be the "As above ,so below".
to Crowley, the central Hieroglyph is that of "the chosen priest and
apostle of infinite space," (The Husband) ,"The prince-priest the
Beast"< [Liber Al. I.15.]. Thus, the Phallus is shown as the central
symbol of this card, as that is the symbol of Tetragrammaton
("rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud,") again showing the Sol
(Phallus) Luna (Yoni) union of reflected light. Crowley took this card
as his personal Hieroglyph, so deep study is required to understand his
deep and subtle meanings implied by this card. Purchasing his books and
reading them over and over is this authors suggestion.
Milo Manara, in his 1 of Air, preferred an attractive Mother Nature look to his card, Here the sensual female figure is all bedecked in leaves and green colors of the earth element. Both Thoth Disks and Erotic Tarot Earth cards correspond to the Pentacle cards in other decks, such as the Ryder-Waite or Tarot of the Old path.
Manara assigns the meanings of instinct, the sense of touch, and the physical sphere, to the Earth cards and specifically assigns to the 1 of Earth, magnetism, ecstasy, success, and perfection. The assigned astrological meaning is the earth element itself and implies, productive and imaginative states of consciousness.
