Tarot Card Comparisons: Rider-Waite-Smith and The Thoth Tarot -ACE OF WANDS

THE ACE OF WANDS, of the Thoth Deck, shows a flaming club/Wand with flaming Yods (meaning-hands) going in the directions of the individual Sephiroth on the  Tree of Life . 

The Rider-Waite (Ryder-Waite) ACE OF WANDS keeps with the traditional wooden wand, the Hand of God(Yod) holding a obviously phallic Wand whose leaves are also shaped as the Hebrew letter yod.  Both the Rider-Waite and Thoth Card imply that the  Ace of Wands is the source of All Energy. The entire  Tree of Life is the glyph of the power of Fire, of Kether, the Crown on the Tree of Life.

The All Powerful name of God in the Qabalah is Tetragrammaton and the Yod is the first Hebrew letter, of the Hebrew spelling of that name (you may look all this up in the book QABALISTIC TAROT by Robert Wang). The Yod, is associated with the English word, "Father".
When you look upon the Ace of Wands, you are viewing the Fire (Father) aspect of the One Energy that is in all things, as well as, in all Sephira on the Tree of Life. This Fire is obvious when looking at the Thoth Ace of Wands, but suggested as the life force in the sprouting wood wand of the Rider-Waite deck.

The Fire, also represent Spirit  which "Knows Itself through Form", and thus is loosely explained as the underlying Fire in all things, but in no way is this a complete understanding of the Spiral Energy {Spirit} that is all around us, in us, below us and above us, and unseen by us; However, deeply felt by us.  The Ace of Wands is the invisible "movement within all Motion", which is about as clear a understanding as we can get. The Qabalah, calls it, "....the primordial Energy of the Divine manifesting in Matter.", yet it is at so early a stage that it is not definitely formulated as Will (Conscious Spirit) and has no form until Binah, the Great Mother, gives it form. 

Please note, that small cards, known as Minor Arcana are not Divine Persons as are the Atu (Major Arcana). Rather, they are sub elements and/or "blind forces" under the Demiourgos (Creative Intelligence), Tetragrammaton. These "blind forces" are ruled by the Intelligences, in the Yetziratic World, who go forth from the Sechemhamphorach (Lord of the Universe). Lord being and Anglo-Saxon word for Husband- Husbandry, and means that he is "keeper of Her Forms". In other words"There was no Father 'till she Named Him Father", simply stating the Form of Father (Fire-Light) belongs to Her creative Dark-Womb. This is one of the many mysteries studied by the Qabalist and theoretical quantum physicists. A study just too lengthy and in-depth for this blog.  

For now, the Element of Spirit (Fire) has its own Lords of the Atu or Major Arcana, (Magus, Emperor, Hermit etc.) .  and each Atu possesses it's own private, personal and particular Universe, with all Demiourgos complete, just as EVERY MAN AND WOMAN is a complete composite of the 10 dimensional Universe depicted by the Sephiroth on the Tree of Life!
  Now all of you are taught that you are built "incomplete" and must seek Goodness (God-ness-----Demiourgos-ness) in order to "make it to heaven" . Most people actually believe, they are in the image of God, and/or made by God, with the God mind of Imagination (making you a Demiurge), but somehow, this Divine All Knowing, All building, All Creating Power has judge you a sinner, It's precious and Divine image, by not completing you......OH COME ON! You are made in a completeness, a Wholeness, that must always progressively identify Itself as evolutionary Self Awareness! You are THE CHILD OF GODLESS/GOD and what you are taught to believe as sin, or incompleteness, is the unending potential of "free thinking" (freedom of choice) that empowers progressive creation! This understanding is lost to you because you are taught to belittle your identity, or are belittled by cultural definitions that make you believe someone else has rule over you, even though you are made "in Gods image" and have freedom of choice. How ridiculous!  Because of this assault on your self value, you may have forgotten that God doesn't build what  God doesn't want! There is a fire within you, this Ace of Wands Demiurge, that drives you over mountains, into the deepest seas, and towards the void of space, creating always creating, because you are the child of the Divine Frenzy of "I AM ME". Ever changing, ever creating and every experiencing that which you create.

"ABOVE ALL THINGS, KNOW THYSELF".....YOU ARE A Demiourgos OF YOUR OWN UNIVERSE, The God of Macrocosm made you the god of your own Microcosm. It is time to know that we didn't come into being as a delusion of God or Goddess; we came into being as a Self-Reflection of Goddess/God. The Phallic-God that is expressive energy and the Womb-God that is receptive energy.The Fire of Passionate creation, the burning need to be, is that Fire felt, and the Mind is the vessel/womb of idea and thought.

This will take some meditation on idea and thought, which is the "purpose" of the Tarot and the  Qabalah. You are blinded by "man-made" definitions of yourself, the Universal Collective Unconscious- Picture Language of the Tarot and the Qabalah, help you to "see again". Your mental blindness, is an illusion created by the Military Industrial Complex of Rulers, who know the art of "divide and conquer" so that you can be "man-made", which is to be divided, spirit from body, mind from soul, by placing the definitions of religion in between; dividing mind from Soul- energy by believing you are not energy but seeking it, Personality from purpose, by training you to believe your purpose is some service of the State or corporations. Idea, is not thought. Idea is Form, thought is definition of form. Thought is justly untrustworthy, as it is anybodies definition and excuses ignorance. That is why "Truth is made Manifest"---Idea, is Form. Thought is definition. For example, yell the words "grow grass, or become grass" at you table. You will find that no matter how forceful your tone, the thought of the definitive word grass does not build the form of grass. Grass is an idea.  The word Grass is merely a thought and not a truth to you, as you cannot build it as form yourself.
You are an Idea of God, not a definition of thought, a word or any combination of words, made by mankind.

Any division between Spirit, consciousness, unconsciousness and subconsciousness causes Weakness,  confusion, division, and  separation due to errant communication between our "Sephirothic energy conscious"; our Tree of Life. Strength requires Union. In the world made of seekers, there aren't I AM's, there are Rulers and Slaves... there are "I Ain't s" those who must seek happiness, love, value, etc, all of which is supplied by "somebody else" (Saviors) ,because somehow," God had a bad day when God created you as It's own Image!"
 Sorry people, but this is thoughtless, God has day's only when God has Form, because "Days" come from Time/Space and not from the Infinite and Endless! "I AM God's Day"...........is a far more intelligent way to understand this! "I Am the Love of You", is a far greater understanding of God. 

The Thoth  ACE OF WANDS, and that of the Rider-Waite deck,  as stated by Israel Regardie of the Golden Dawn,:(Regardie, The Golden Dawn, v. IV. 'Book T'):  "First order of appearance are the four Aces, representing the force of Spirit acting in, and binding together the four scales of each element and answering to the Dominion of the Letters of the Name in Kether of each. They represent the Radical or Root Force. The four Aces are said to be placed on the North Pole of the Universe, wherein they revolve, governing its rotation, and ruling as the connecting link between Yetzirah and the Material Plane of the Universe."
When the ACE OF WANDS, of both the Thoth and Rider-Waite decks, is thrown during a Divination, it implies:
  • Having a new thought or new idea.
  • Great energy of new beginnings where one has discovered a new source of trans-formative power.
  • The querent is planting the seeds for a new public identity.
  • Inspired Consciousness, a desire for self-growth.
  • The passions are aroused and creativity is assured.
  • A gift of great sexual energy, strength,power and the love of life.
  • Expansive energy and will-power for whatever one's goals dictate.
  • The first impulse and passion will begin.
If ill defined by the surrounding cards, the Ace of Wands implies that chaos begins.

Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
