THE TEN OF DISKS-WEALTH:
Prosperity, wealth, success in the
world of finances and physical health. This card is the sum total of the
other 35 minor arcana since wealth is a synchronicity (word coined by psychologist Carl Jung) of mind, body and
soul. The Thoth Ten of Disks card indicates that by using your communication skills
(Mercury symbols on top three coins) and linking them with your healing
abilities (the caduceus on the bottom coin) while listening to your
inspiration (the star coins) you will be able to manifest abundance (the
three Hebrew symbols for abundance coins).
The Astrological sign for
this card is Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the representative planet for
communication and organizational skills. Virgo is the sign of
prosperity and abundance manifested in a tangible way. The Ten of Disk or Pentacles card
indicates that all Ten of your conscious states of energy (The Ten
Sephiroth of the Tree of Life) contribute to a balanced flow of healing,
communication, and organizational skills all accumulating to active
function on the physical plane. Your Spirit and body are manifesting
abundance. Obviously this is a card of prosperity and also obviously,
it will change, but for now eat, drink and be merry. We should also
understand that Wealth becomes prosperity when we spend it, as our wealth
prospers others and thus ourselves which is a form of communication.
The Spiral Tarot 10 of Pentacles, shows this wealth becoming prosperity, as illustration of family heritage. Generations of family are shown as part of the Pentacle Tree of Life design. The card implies human heritage, and implies the richness of family background. Also implied, is financial security, family support or burdens.
To reiterate, the ruler of the Tens- MALKUTH is Earth. that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah
It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the
Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are Three Sephiroth composing a Triangle,
but Assiah/Malkuth, stands alone for it is the completion of all the
other States of Energy Conscious. Earth/Malkuth is the only sensual activity, of
Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually
experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life, making very intense sensual experiences. However as they journey inward they often
forget that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel
the Conscious experiences. But to travel,the other Sephiroth without a
body. is to feel nothing at all!
There is only One Sense to
Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight (the All Seeing Eye), and all the "Five
Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense
of "I". To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more
senses "felt" than five...as many as 33, but that is not for this blog
to describe, as it is well defined in the practices of Tantra Yoga. So if you are interested in a greater Wealth of
Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree while you still support a
physical body or practice Tantra Yoga. [ a very good book to begin Kundalini Yoga studies is: A CHAKRA & KUNDALINI WORKBOOK by Swami Anadakapila Saraswati ]
The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of
Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the
stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world as the Spinning of a
Disk. The Stability of a Discus is in its spin, making it accurate. I find this to be a
brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. The fact that every stable atom in our body construction, is spinning at a rapid rate, also backs up Crowley's theory of the Pentacles as Disks.
THOTH TEN OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The
Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah. Again, this
is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material
The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses
. The material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This
vast materiality is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole
Tree of Life, of Ten Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various
symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is
dedicated to this Manifested world; it is the Goal Achieved, by
the Conscious of God. Our purpose as physical Spirits
and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. The Great Work.
energy that is Spiral, we are "everywhere and no where" at the very
moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind"
body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time
Space continuum, giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the
ability to discriminate my motion! In other words,"freedom of Choice"
, which simply means free to move by perspective.
Spirit finds it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and
move about sensually. To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an
inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind
of God...until now!
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred
Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the
Earth, not because we are bad or Lustful (The Lust of Goddess God built
us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and
sensual! The Divine Creative's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution
not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy
(motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to
deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic
Gematria which simply means The First Sephira-Kether, The Above,
that we bring to the Below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are
the Goal for we bridge the gap between the Divine Creative and Creation! Thus, we are Lust without the Need of result! Lust being the
Divine Frenzy, that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! We are Spiral Entities,i.e. Spirits.
When the Ten of
Disks is thrown during a reading, the querent:
- Is assured of physical
prosperity and abundance. But being a Ten, the end of a cycle, means it
may be short lived.
- Is at a physical cross roads
where supply is stable but boredom has set in and is non stimulating.
However, the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon
- Will in the next 10 weeks or 10 months
you will experience opportunities for abundance by utilizing
communication, organizational and intuitive skills. It also indicates
that during this period you will experience a better alignment of

people in your life that will profit you (August 21 to September21) or add to
your abundance emotionally, physically and mentally.
- Financial security.
- Family support or burdens.
- A rich family heritage.
