Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: THE KING OF PENTACLES

Faithful followers of this blog, know by now that Chokmah is both Wisdom and the Will to Force. He is the idea of male polarity and is the dynamic motion that is projected as the kings or in the Thoth Deck, the Knights.
  Because of Patriarchal rule of our cultures it is proper to think that Male came first and  that Female came latter. This argument is also because of our short-sighted animal physical perspective on sexuality, where big strong stud is better than soft small female. The startling fact to some, is that if you come up with the idea of Male, then you come up with the idea of female at the same moment.There is no male concept without the concept of female and vise verse. So the argument of whom came first, is null and void when talking about the Supernal Triangle..
The Will to Force (Chokmah) and the Will to Form (Binah) united produce the Will - To - Be, i.e. The Divine Creative,. which is the way of saying the mating of I and Am produces the idea of Being.  Our concept of sexuality is in need of adjustment before we can understand the One Energy that made itself Two.
Chokmah is the second Sephira and thus is the force behind the four Deuces. The Personification of that force is represented in the four Knights (Thoth) or Kings (Rider-Waite). In other words, Chokmah's will to force, is at its most concentrated and dense elemental form on Earth.

THE THOTH KNIGHT OF DISKS:
Represents the Lord of the wild and fertile land and as such is the King of the elemental spirits of earth such as the Gnomes.  The zodiacal attributes to this card are the last Decan of Leo and the first two Decans of Virgo.

Being that the Knight of Disks is the most dense manifestation of the Elemental Yod (Fire) force he is the force behind fruition, and  growth but tends to be slow.   This fertility is represented in this card by the use of the Stag antlers on the Helm of the Knight or shown in the Rider-Waite deck as fecund plant growth. The understanding of the mythical animal images of the middle ages, comes in handy here, as the Stag is the beast that ate the serpent ( received wisdom) and in so doing sheds its skin (antlers), any illness and old age, just as a serpent does.So to make a long and wonderful story short, the Stag represents the Knights power to regenerate  as does the organic matter it is a symbol of..
Many of us have seen the Fire of Earth, in its volcanic upheavals; however, how often do we realized that Volcanism is Earth regenerating itself? Thus is the Fire of Earth that is the Knight or King the cycle of rebirth. The same fruition is implied by the corn (sacred to Isis-Ceres)) or fruitful plane that Thoth Knight's horse is grazing on. Thus he carries a flail, used in grain harvest and his disk/shield is that of solid nutrition. He is the most expressive force of fertility that is expressed through the legendary Green Man.

The Rider-Waite King of Pentacles is most effective in illustrating the fecund growth of this Earthly Fire. Surrounding his throne- bound King, dressed in robes of greenery, is a dense growth of green plants. The heads of the bulls on the thrown are a medieval symbol of fertility. Waite's King holds the scepter of the Sun in one hand and a Pentacle, the symbol for earth and also mankind, on his lap with the other, acknowledging the union of male and female forces in this one King..

WHEN THE KNIGHT OF DISKS  or KING OF PENTACLES IS THROWN DURING A READING It implies:
  • A concern for the body and good health.
  • A doctor or herbalist concerned with health.
  • The querent is showing the spirit of fertilization, as joyous practicality, steadfastness, reliability and is an epitome of material success.
  • Generous, courageous but is not prone to seeking adventure.
  • Ordinary activity, in social position, accomplishments, experiencing a physical success that is relaxed and enjoyed.
  • A mature reliable, dependable, and wise male upon whom others may depend on and with whom they lay their burdens.
  • A dark male, who is both courageous and lethargic in tendencies. However driven in matters of material success
  • A Doctor of physical medicine.

A good financial provider who understands and likes work knowing it leads to financial security. The querent may be such a person or involved with such a person in their life. The surrounding cards or position in the reading would support this understanding.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
