MALKUTH, the Tenth Sephiroth,and the domain of the Tens, is Earth. Malkuth is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah.
It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the
Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are Three Sephiroth composing a Triangle,
but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the
other States of Energy Conscious.
Malkuth is the Only Sensual Activity, of
Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually
experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life, as they often
forget that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel
the Conscious experiences. But to travel,the other Sephiroth without a
body. is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to
Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "Five
Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense
of "I". To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more
senses "felt" than five...as many as ten, but that is not for this blog
to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of
Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree while you still support a
The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of
Pentacles or Ten of Coins, or the 10 of Earth, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the
stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world...the Spinning of a
Disk. Where the Stability of a Discus is in its spin.I find this to be a
brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy.
It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances
our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion.
TEN OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The
Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah. Again, this
is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material
The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses,
as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This
vast materiality is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole
Tree of Life, of Ten Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various
symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is
dedicated to this Manifested world---------it is the Goal Achieved, by
the Conscious of God. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. The Great Work.
energy that is Spiral, we are "everywhere and no where" at the very
moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind"
body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time
Space continuum, giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the
ability to discriminate my motion! In other words----"freedom of Choice"
which simply means free to move by perspective and/or definition.
This Rocks! I
find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and
move about sensually. To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an
inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind
of God...until now!I now have senses of colored sight, taste, touch smell, and hear the joyous song of the day. I have the sense of happiness, the sense of sadness, the sense of direction, the sense of ambition, the sense of accomplishment, the sense of motion, the sense of being me. The Senses I have in Malkuth are almost too numerous to mention....but that never stopped me from trying to mention them. You see, I have a sense of self-value as well!
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred
Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the
Earth, not because we are bad or just Lustful (The Lust of Goddess God built
us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and
sensual! God's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution
not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy
(motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to
deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an
error"! We Rock Dudes and Dudesses! I am (the name of us all) the Image maker, who can
recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic
Gematria ( read 777 by A. Crowley) which simply means The First Sephira -!- Kether, The Above,
that we bring to the Below!
In other words, we don't have a goal, we are
the Goal! Thus, we are Lust without the Need of result! Lust being the
Divine Frenzy,that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! Like I said,
"We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life, each the ascended man Adam Khadmon! We just need to "Remember" our inheritance, that we left behind as we became a continuously more "condensed" version of Self. As in a condensed book, some data is left out and we must go back to the original manuscript to find it. The Tree of Life is that manuscript and the Paths are roads to the data left behind.
Milo Manara, in his 10 of Earth, depicts a relaxed restaurant scene where a reasonably wealthy, long legged young woman is comfortably enjoying a glass of wine, and a book. The 10 of Earth is a scene of comfort, inheritance, and income; the meanings he as assigned to this card.
Manara assigns-the astrological meaning of Mercury in Virgo, which implies the need for critical and detailed communication.When the Ten of
Disks or 10 of Earth is thrown during a reading, the querent is assured:
- of physical
prosperity and abundance. But being a Ten, the end of a cycle, means it
may be short lived. Therefore, the querent is at a physical cross roads
where supply is stable but boredom has set in and is non stimulating.
However, the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon
