Thoth Tarot & comparisons

THE KNIGHT OF DISKS/THE KING OF PENTACLES: The Spiral Tarot and Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

 
The Knight of Disks, of the Thoth deck, is known as the King of Pentacles in The Spiral Tarot. In the Qabalah, the pentacle is the symbol of the ascended man and many old and new decks use this symbol as an symbol of earth.  The Knight of  Disks or King of Pentacles, represents Mastery of Abundance and Prosperity.

He is the harvester, who with threshing tool in hand, is prepared to harvest all that he has cultivated. With the capacity to manifest inner world skills into the outer-world, he is determined to achieve harvest in the areas of health and finances.

The Knight of Disks is the Physical Doctor, the Healer  who is focused on health care, and a concern for body health. He is the fiery part of Earth, representing Earth as a producer of Life. Mountains, earthquakes, and gravitation are all attributed to this state of energy consciousness, as these are all Life contributors on this earth.

Life must be in constant motion to be animated, yet it also must be stable (gravity) and often reconstruction of the motion of Life requires a destructive element to de-construct before reconstruction can be created; However, destruction must be held to a point of healing rather than destruction for destruction's sake. Thus the Knight of Disks, is halted in a rich and fertile field, where his charger grazes languidly on the local flora.He is ready for any action, but for now, is in repose.

In the area of health he monitors his diet (horse eating grains) and in the area of finance, (his large coin shield) he creates and protects that which is financially necessary.
The horned helmet, suggests he is a diagnostician who determines what is necessary in order to manifest abundance. Leo the lion appears on his shield, representing the creative aspects of manifesting harvest.  He is steadfast, reliable, accomplished; the epitome of success.


Chokmah , the second Sephiroth- WISDOM, is both Wisdom and the Will to Force  and is the Sephira of the Knights/Kings. He is the idea of male polarity. Now there are those who think that Male came first, or that Female came first. This argument is because of our short-sighted physical perspective on sexuality brought on by each of us living in their own Perspectives. One could say that we all live in "One-Human-istan", each so self absorbed that we think the universe revolves around our own individual thinking.  However, science has proven, that the Universe was thought of before us. 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 which is the "world of Atziluth".
The Will to Force (Chokmah-Wisdom)and the Will to Form (Binah-Understanding) united produce the Will - To - Be. which is the way of saying the mating of I and Am produces the idea of Being.   Therefore, 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  also the force behind the four Deuces. The Personification of that force is represented in the four Knights/Kings. In other words, Chokmah's will to force, is at its most concentrated and dense elemental form on Earth.

THE KNIGHT OF DISKS or King of Pentacles:
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 force (Spirit-Fire), he is the active- 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 Thoth Knight. 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, 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; fleeting yet is also the cycle of rebirth. The same fruition is implied by the grain or fruitful plane that his horse is grazing on. Thus he carries a flail, used in grain harvest and his disk/shield is that of solid nutrition.

The Spiral Tarot King of Pentacles, is the comparable card to the Thoth Knight of Disks. Here is represented a kind man of fertile nature, as depicted in the horned crown, the fecund plant life, the Bull head on the throne and the Alchemical earth sign on the upper right of the card. The horns and bull are  medieval earthly signs of fertility. He is holding a pentacle, thus designating the earthly sign of this card.  The Thoth Knights are more active representations of the Kings, as Crowley knew the Forces of the Kings to be active and battle like. However, the Spiral Tarot King is steadfast on his throne, indicating, a sometimes stubborn but loyal nature. Persistent and often possessive. The horned crown is also indicative of the  king's Bacchanalian nature; he loves to indulge his senses.

WHEN THE KNIGHT OF DISKS  or KING OF PENTACLES IS THROWN DURING A READING:
  • It implies:
  • A steadfast lover.
  • A kind loving man who loves his good food, good wine and is financially secure.
  • 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 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 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.
  • It's a good time to concentrate on physical and financial health. Use your diagnostic abilities to manifest harvest in your life.
  • For woman this Knight of Disks, represents the dynamic assertive part of themselves, the inner animus  that wants to sustain abundance in health and fiances.
  • Disks as a suit, represent the earth sign months of Capricorn ( December 21-January 21), Virgo ( August 21-September 21), and Taurus (April 21- May 21) which may indicate particular people with those signs who may assist you in opportunities for harvest in you life.
