Thoth Tarot & comparisons

THE FIVE OF SWORDS: The Spiral Tarot and Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

The position of Geburah on the Tree of Life, is the Filth Sephiroth--Severity.  The Thoth 5 of Swords is subtitled, DEFEAT; one may ask, why is there a need for such a nasty- Intelligent-judgmental- corrective force if we are the Child of God who has freedom of choice?  First off, that divine gift of freedom of choice belongs to the Soul and not the body. The body is a servant of the Psyche (soul) and must enact the software downloaded in the brain.

This Severity  is easily explained as cutting away the unworthy bits, so that you are the original you as designated by the Soul. But what many fail to understand, is that all the definitions indoctrinated into you, by your society, belief systems and cultures are not you. Since the Soul has already defined you as its "self" therefore, you are previously defined
 before  manifestation.
` Yes it is true, dear ones, truth is made manifest therefore you never came seeking your truth, nor to find out who you are, the Soul  obviously already Knows that!  Your Soul became manifest by putting knowledge into form! You are Defined into being, not a being who seeks definition! You are a divine creative who proves definition by making its self-ideas manifest and thus proving themselves as performance! Thus the severity of Geburah, necessarily helps us remember who we really are, and not what we pretend to be; severity assists us in maximizing performance.

The Thoth Five of Swords, is known as Defeat, or Lord of Defeat. Being that Venus is in Aquarius here, the normal disruption of Geburah's strength, is not the cause of disaster!  This is because weakness is the cause of the Five of Swords disaster! A weakness brought on by pacifism , and enfeebling sentiment. Maybe even treachery. 

This treachery seems to be the implied topic of the Spiral Tarot 5 of Swords, as One strong man armed with all the swords, is standing guard over the raft, while one man drowns in the back ground and another is clinging to the raft. The one seaman has treacherously taken charge of the raft and leaves all others to fend for themselves. This card bespeaks of defeat that is hard, but must be accepted in this situation.

The hilts of the swords, on the Thoth card, form the sinister image of the inverted pentagram; where the body's fears has conquered the will by the treachery of sensation.  Which is easily done as feeling fearful, is often more sensual than feeling willful, since the ever present doubt brought into belief by indoctrination, enhances fearful imagination and keeps the will from collecting its force into form. You may notice that none of the hilts  of the five swords,are the same, implying many different weak thoughts assaulting the blue Rose of Wisdom, that was at once whole in the Four, is now all cut to pieces in the Five. Wisdom is scattered to the winds of emotional defeat and blood and poison drips from the thoughts/swords.

The Five of Swords is Geburah in Yetzirah, a severe Mars influence, is now in the Astral World.  Thus, stimulating aggressive fantasy thought. Now Mars is the consort of Venus in mythology, and mythology is not a story telling a lie , but rather a story or lie relating a truth. The Blue Rose of Venus, which is the Rose of the Cross, can't take the buffeting of the Martian assault. So along with the nine and ten of Swords, the Five is one of the most destructive events in the deck.  Here, loss, defeat, failure become prominent where contest is decided and finished against the person.
 
When the Five of Swords card is thrown during a reading, the querent is usually caught in the fears of the past.
  • They are experiencing a self defined prison  of negative, self defeating beliefs.
  • Here is defeat on a mental level, bringing humiliation and weakness, suggesting treachery in our programing.
  • The suggestion here is to give up fighting, swallow your pride and acknowledge  your limitations, and then proceed in a new direction. 
  • The querent must learn that we are only defeated when we stop seeking another way.  So there is no 5 week or 5 month period here, since it is the querent's own mental negativity that is involved here, and they could change perspective at any time.
  • Thinking that one has the upper hand will get them nowhere.
  • Some one is trying to take advantage of you.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
