Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: THE KNIGHT OF PENTACLES & THE PRINCE OF DISKS

 In past blogs, I have stated that Tiphareth is The Central Sun of our conscious energy expression into incarnation. Tiphareth is called -Beauty, and is as high as our Personal Conscious can go up the Qabalistic  Tree of Life.

This state of Consciousness is known in the Mysteries of Ancient Wisdom, as the Christ, or Buddha consciousness and it brings the body into a "higher" state of vibratory life force; a force some know as "unconditional Love". When the body channels this State of Energy Conscious that is Tiphareth, the physiology changes into that of a "Masters body". However, only through diligent meditative techniques and ritual divination is this conscious state possible to physically experience.
 THE RIDER-WAITE KNIGHT OF PENTACLES. AND THE THOTH PRINCE OF DISKS are comparable cards.

The Thoth Prince of Disks
{Also called the Knight of Pentacles, in other Tarot Decks), is the Prince of the Chariot of Earth. Prince and Emperor of the Gnomes and is attributed to the last Decan of Aries and the first two Decan of Taurus.
This Prince is the Air of Earth and/ or Specific Air of Primal Earth. The Chariot of the Thoth Prince o Disks is pulled by the Bull of Taurus, suggesting primal earth.

Being Air of Earth, the Prince is Intelligible Earth, as Air is Mind. Thus he brings incredible energy to physical matters. Such intelligent Earth, is the instinctual mind that shows its incredible focus on building, as in bees, ants, birds etc.
Because the Prince of Disks is so active, his armor is light and unrestrictive. On his head is the Bull helmet an animal sacred to the earth. The disk in his hand is an orb resembling a globe, marked in agricultural mathematical symbols. The orbed scepter, that is surmounted by a cross, is a symbol of the Great Work accomplished. The Great Work being manifesting the Higher States of Conscious Energy, in the lower states of consciousness below, on earth. This bringing the "As above so below", is done by physical focus and attention to work. What many of us don't understand that if you empty your brain of random thoughts, while only focusing on the task at hand, you are meditating even when doing the most menial of tasks! Even a daily commute in your car, with radio off, and doing nothing but "hands on the wheel" driving, while paying absolute attention to traffic, is a meditation! The Prince of Disks intelligence knows that multi-tasking, is just another way to do nothing well or as is stated in the folk lore axiom as "jack of all trades, master of none." 
The Thoth Prince of Disks, is the Green Man force of Celtic mysteries, whose job it is to bring forth, from the Earthly element, that Vegetation, which is the sustenance of Spirit itself. The Mother Earth makes the form, he enlivens it and enforces the design.
The Character of the Prince of Disks, is methodical, competent, ingenious, enduring, trustworthy, cautious, and imperturbable. All the qualities of a very capable manger and a steadfast preserving worker. Very good at horticulture  and hard= patient work.
This Prince of Mind and Earth, is ingenious  as he constantly seeks new ways of using common things. Always adapting the circumstance to his slow and methodical purpose. This is to say, that his plans are well thought out. His emotions are subdued, thus he may appear insensitive and maybe even dull and slow of wit. But this is because of misinterpretation of his mental activity of which he won't devote to  ideas that  he understands to be beyond his expertise.  Simply, the reaction of others to this stalwart character, depends entirely on their temperament and not his. As Crowley suggests with his card's illustration, studying the Green Man Myth, will deepen the tarot reader's understanding of this card.

The Rider-Waite Knight of Pentacles, focuses on this mundane meaning of enduring, stalwart and imperturbable character. His medieval knight is stationary, holding a Pentacle in his right hand and firmly seated on his sturdy statue like mount. In the back ground is a cultivated field implying his contribution to agriculture as a fecund force of growth (bringing forth the vegetation) which suggests the Green Man. The whole card is bathed in sun light which suggests summer fertility.

When the Prince of Disks or Knight of Pentacles is thrown during a reading,
  • implies issues of physical activity. Such as: body building, muscle tone, sports, and a steel like resolve to move through issues and remove blocks. 
  • The querent is in a kind of Moving meditation, a focus on the material world, experiencing personal balance and productivity.
  • Becoming or is a builder who works steady towards their goals and being singularly focused on establishing security.
  • The querent, is both kind and trustworthy and will complete a long and laborious task, "come hell or high water".
  • There is suggested a Mastery here, of change and harvest procured by knowledge and productivity.

This is a hard card to make negative, the only thought being, that of slowness, and seemingly dull witted. 
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
