The Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: THE EIGHT OF WANDS

Mercury in Sagittarius, rules the 8 of Wands-SWIFTNESS-card. Mercury being masculine force is representing the stabilizing of the Fiery Energy, shown as electric Sagitrian arrows radiating outward from a central point. However, Sagittarius is unstable in Mercury, so the balance of energy is rapid and fleeting, as arrows are from a bow. .
Here we have the Intelligent Energy of  Chokma (Wisdom) being swiftly brought down as the message of the Original Will.

The number 8, also refers to the Sephira, Hod, which is the Splendor of electricity, speech and light. Hod also represents the individual mind and bright reason. Thus we have the illustrated card showing  Light-wands turned into electrical rays that are sustaining or even constituting the vibrational energy of physical Matter.  Hod is one of the Sephira in the Astral Kingdom, which is a fluid electromagnetic spectrum of vibratory energy. This may be unseen to us, as we only see the Visible light spectrum which is less than .4% of the entire electromagnetic spectrum that we call the Multi-dimensional Universe. Therefore, Form  is created in the Astral fluids , by the individual mind in Yesod (Foundation) the lower Astral Sephiroth. before it is seen here in the lowest Kingdom of the Astral crystallized light that we call Malkuth (kingdom) or Earth. However, the whole of the Astral kingdom seeks to deceive. Not because it is bad or wrong, but because we view Astral images with the perceptual vulnerability of our own individual mind. Subjecting these images to the judgement of reactionary-experience rather than fact.  We are particularly susceptible to deception in the alternatively bright and murky sphere of Yesod (Sub-conscious) and it is in the Higher state of Hod, that we begin to understand our perceptions.  

 On the Thoth 8 of Wands, the central illustration of the "As above, So below" dual pyramids displays a rainbow above them, depicting the restored Universe of shinning light which deals with the maxima, and the seven  colors of the visible spectrum exhibiting interplay and correlation.

The Thoth card represents the high velocity energy that is the master-key of  modern mathematical physics showing no flames, for they have become the electromagnetic spectrum where the fiery- electrical energy has become a intelligible form. Thus the 8 of Wands- card is all about swiftness and/or rapidity.

Again the Rider-Waite 8 of Wands card is laid out for more of a  mundane reading or divination. On a blue sky and lush landscape background, Waite displays 8 leaf sprouting wands, as if suspended or falling. Again, the phallic force of Mercury is shown in the shape of the wands, and the swift movement of growth is shown in the sprouting twigs and leaves. Obviously Rider-Waite, still holding to his oath of secrecy, didn't spend great effort in designing this card, and it is simplicity itself.

When the 8 of Wands  is thrown during a reading, the querent shall or is experiencing:
  • A hasty communication (letter or message) within a 8 day, or 8 week period that is quickly passed or expended. 
  •  Too much force is being applied and expended in a very rapid rush. Violence may result but short in duration. 
  • Love of the open air and is courageous, bold,  and  a lover of field sports----as long as they don't last too long.
  • The querent is generous, subtle, eloquent and yet a somewhat untrustworthy personality;untrustworthy because they don't stay in one place too long.
  • Rapidity and Swiftness, Spontaneity seem to govern motivation.
  • Lots of energy to solve issues, if the querent acts fast on the solution
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
