Netzach means Victory. To reiterate from past blogs: Feelings, instinct, and
undifferentiated Group Mind, are attributed to the Sphere of Netzach.
Netzach is in Assiah, influencing the Material World. The planet and
sign of the Seven of Disks-Failure, are Saturn in Taurus. The Angels of
the Decan are Herochiel and Mitzrael.
Saturn in Taurus brings disappointment, often because of a great deal of work that brings little reward.
are sixteen of the gemantic figures (See AC's book, 777 or "The Hand
Book of Gemancy" Equinox Vol. I, No.2). The Seven of Disks is in the
shape of the gemantic figure Rubeus, which is the one of putrefaction, a menacing symbol.
you are a student of Alchemy, putrefaction is noted as a necessary
process of chemical transformation, before purification can be
produced. Thus the atmosphere of the card implies blight, cultivation is
spoiled. The suggestion is bad money.
The Seven of Disks, Failure, is also called.The Lord of Success unfulfilled and rightly so, as it is about physical failure and non-success.
Milo Manara, has illustrated a medieval scene of a cloistered novice who seems to be excited over her own work. One of the practices of Sex magick is to reach a climax, concentrating on the image of the desired manifestation. Here he has combined medieval magick with authorship of manuscripts. This all will make sense if one understands the meanings of, business, transaction, the fruits of one's own work, and exchange, that he applies to the 7 of Earth. He also assigns the meaning of Saturn in Taurus, implying the need to focus or consolidate in a continuous and possessive manner. Which is the practice of Sex magick. The practice of "self pleasuring" while looking at a mandala or image of what you wish to happen, is an old one in the process of invocation, where one "calls for with earnest desire."
the Seven of Disks (Pentacles in other decks) or the 7 of Earth, is thrown during
a reading, implied:
- is a fear of failure with finances, health and
- However, 7 in Netzach is a weak event,and deregulation of
the element of earth, so soon the querent's project will be completed
if determined to "keep on" and ignoring the feelings of never finishing
- The Determination to release this fear of failure should go on
for within 7 weeks or 7 months. However, this determination must be
hard fought, for there is a tendency to abandon labor, and allowing
everything to sink in a mire of sloth.
- Yet again, putrefaction is before
the transformation of purification, so this is the point where the
"lowest fallen becomes the highest exalted" .
- The implication of this
card, is that you shall succeed if you don't listen to the thoughts of
failure that are tempting your brain. Push harder, you'll soon succeed!
