Tarot Card Comparisons: Key 17-Star/Hope of The Elemental Tarot & Key 17 -The Star of Thoth Tarot.

Key 17- THE STAR, The Qabalistic Path of Tzaddi connects the Sephiroth Netzach (Victory) to the Sephiroth Yesod (The Foundation) on the Tree of Life. This is the path called the Natural Intelligence, by Paul Foster Case in his instructional text, Thirty Two Paths to Wisdom; natural intelligence because it is the Path of proper approach to the Divine Energy inherent in each person. It is the Natural Intelligence, as it represents the proper use of Imagination----which is Divine Intelligence used in "image making". Many of us call it the Creator.



















The meaning of the Hebrew word, Tzaddi, is Fish hook, implying meditation, a process inseparable from the proper use of imagination. Once we are hooked on an idea, we focus energy (emotion), and with proper software running our brain, the body gets it done. The physical vehicle, is a power-tool of Imagination and as we all know, with computer run power tools, garbage programing in means, garbage production- out.
 
All this may be too much for the culturally programed personality to absorb, but the fact is, you were imagined into being by what we now call the Collective Unconscious, or Universal Unconsciousness.  So for the sake of simplicity, I'll call it the Divine Intelligence.

In the terms of Tzaddi, fish hook, the implication shown on the Thoth card, is that there is a merging of two streams of conscious energy, for something is put-in rather than taken out. Here the individual consciousness is attached to the Greater Conscious. In the Tarot/Qabalah, Water is the symbol used for consciousness, making the analogy of the fish hook being put in, pertinent as well.
It helps to understand that we are not a brain, nor any kind of separate physical device. We are both the Transmitter and the Transmitted. Just as a Radio Transmitter (in our case-Spirit)  transmits frequency "every where but nowhere" at the same time and would be unheard without a radio receiver, so would the frequencies of  Spiral Energy (Spirit) be unheard with out a physical vehicle tuned to that infinite frequency. In this broadcast scenario, Spirit is the Collective Unconscious, and the individual frequencies would be Soul Stations while the human vessel would be the receiving radio controlled- robotic -power tool.
 
In quantum physics, a entity is a point in time which to a timeless energy frequency, is extremely necessary for self awareness. Points in time are necessary for a discriminating creator, for how do you know what you do and what you affect, when you have no way of examining the action? To gather Knowledge, the mind needs an intellectual gathering place---a point in time.

The material that the Divine Consciousness deals in is "Thought", something we know exists but are unable to explain its source. It is our "first matter", and in Qabalah , the first matter-thought is often symbolized as a fish. This concept allows me to take the next quantum leap in examination. Theoretically if we describe the Ocean, as the womb of earth life, ( Imagination is the Womb of idea) we can see that to the Ocean, it is everywhere and nowhere at the same time, for it has no sense of self. However, the fish is made of Ocean and its elements and must exist in the Ocean as a "part of Oceanic imagination"; a self-image, if you will, of the Ocean itself.  And as Spirit ( I AM) must with us, the Ocean flows through the crystallized self -image (Me) that it has imagined into existence, in order to be able to do work. Now I know this is simplistic as an explanation can get, but it should help you in understanding why you have a physical vehicle, and why it is most sacred to Spirit!

The I AM (Imagination) denotes existence , the Me establishes it as a sensual point in time, i.e. a place.

The Path of the Natural Intelligence is the Path of the raw forces attributed to Netzach (Victory). To a Qabalist these natural forces are called the Elohim (Gods of Netzach) and are synonymous with nature itself.  Moreover,the number of The Star, is 17 and when added together (1+7=8) seventeen becomes 8 which is key 8-Lust, which represents conscious control over the Kundalini (Lion-Serpent) whose description is both solar (lion is the symbol of the Sun) and sexual (serpentine force). As I have stated before, the Kundalini is coiled in Yesod, which is the Foundation of earth manifestation.
To many, sex-energy or Kundalini is a word of sin filled lust and emotional turmoil; However, the initiate knows as we encounter the sexual energy in ourselves, we are approaching the Greater Mysteries of Tiphareth, The Solar Logos, the central star of our existence. Of course,"if you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen".  Thus, the Path of Tzaddi-The Star is  important to the neophyte as it is a very powerful Path which points out the proper way to approach the Kundalini...The Divine Energy inherent in all of us.
This process of approach is a kind of yoga (communion) involving the "opening of Chakras" and/or the enervation of energy centers through the process of meditation. This is also the energy we use in the meditation process, being both the goal and means of enlightenment. The Star is the method or means of perfection.

In the Thirty Two Paths of Wisdom, the Magus Paul Foster Case stated that: The twenty eight path [Path of Tzaddi} is called the Natural Intelligence, and it is so called because through it is consummated  and perfected the Nature of every existing thing under the Sun." {the brackets are my own insertion).

Qabalists know the Star Card represents the proper use of imagination, through the energy of meditation.
 Even though meditation feels like a personal activity, successful meditation shows us that it is not we that are meditating but rather, we are meditated! Truth be known, The Higher Self brings the Personality into meditation. In the context of meditation, the Personality uses the Path of Tzaddi, The Fish Hook, in searching for reality in the context of meditation; However, meditation is also The Higher Self angling to pull the Personality up from the depths of self-enclosure which is a reality imposed on us by the physical senses.

The Thoth Star Card figure, represents the most pure manifestation of the Great Mother Binah at the level of Personality, preceding enclosure in matter, She is the Same  figure found in The Empress, in her royal regalia; The High Priestess and in The Universe cards,; However, here She is unveiled, un-robed,  further representing Her purity. 

The Star is associated with the love and inspiration sign of  Aquarius. In the ancient world, Saturn was said to govern Aquarius, referring us to Binah and The Universe key21. 
 
Because the Star card represents the universe resolved into its ultimate elements, it relates to many more Paths than any other card in the deck. Thus, I recommend getting the text book by Robert Wang---The Qabalistic Tarot ( A text book of Mystical Philosophy) and studying the many path Charts on the Tree of Life , that he presents in the book.

To the Magi, the Star card represents the "Lower Eden", from which the Personality originates and the Emperor, represents "Upper Eden" where the Fiery Higher Self originates;The Solar Logos. Here to, we see a relationship of  The Star Path (Tzaddi) relating to another Path, that of the Emperor (Heh). The Star card also relates to the Planet Venus, which to the ancients was seen as the "Morning and Evening Star", also referred to as Lucifer, the Most beautiful of all Arch-Angels, referring to the Sephiroth Tiphareth-Beauty, which is the Solar Logos.  Lucifer is not seen as a underworld figure, but rather the Higher Self. But with proper enforcement of propaganda. the meaning of Beauty (Synchronicity) became a Underworld Angel who was so narcissistic that he challenged God----which is the common Christian view. We all must study history to see how the Christians took the names of gods and goddesses of other religions and demonized them, which only contributed to ignorance and lost self-awareness. The truth is that the Latin word Lucifer is similar to the Greek Christos  (Sun, also Zeus Christos or Sun of God) ----both relating to the fiery Sun of God....The Solar Logos and/or our Higher Self.                              
                                             

The Elemental Tarot key 17, Star/Hope card shows us a 6 pointed yellow and red star, formed by the interlocking triangle of fire, and the feminine triangle of water. This is one of the seals of Solomon, that represents the uniting of heaven and earth.  The outstretched wings represent the power of divine protection, freedom and the ability to transcend the mundane world of culture. Projecting from the star are six rays, containing the 22 arrows of energy.
The clear lake reflects the star, symbolizing  the "as above so below" philosophy of the mysteries. The zodiacal assignation to this card is Mercury in mid heaven which implies the forming of one's own opinion. Along the border of this colorful card is a Gnostic Text line from The Gnostic essay/poem, The Thunder The Perfect Mind. This text can be found in the book, The Nag Hammadi Library which is composed of ancient papyri that were dug up in clay jars in the year 1945.
"I am the substance and the one who has no substance,do not be ignorant of me", sums up the Stars in the heavens very well. For we are all built out of the substance of stars, yet we know not the consciousness of stars.
When the Star Card-Key 17is thrown during a reading the querent shall be or will be experiencing:
  • Hope, faith and unexpected help for 17 weeks or 17 months.
  • Self esteem and confidence contributing to self-efficiency and talent. 
  • The querent, upon meditating, shall hear their own song (sound frequency), becoming harmony and then emoting  love, calm and peaceful agility.
 If ill defined by the accompanying cards, there can be the experiencing of  dreaminess, and deceived hope. This is rare, so basically the querent is or will be,
  • experiencing freedom from all masks, illusions and restrictions while being replenished by the pure waters of the Universal Unconscious.
