TAROT CARD COMPARISONS: The Thoth Ace of Wands and The Elemental Tarot-One of Fire/Lightning

The Qabalistic 1st Sephiroth, Kether, is the Crown, the Observer, the Dark Energy; that is. It is the Unknowable God of many religions, and yet as many of us know, religion is not God, but rather god made in the image of man. Kether is the Idea of the Big Bang, the point, the Singularity...The One.

The Aces, are of Kether and are also essences, so they too are not easily explained.
The Four Aces are related to Kether, thus they are representative of the Pure Forms of Energy that are elaborated by the other cards of the Tarot Deck and/or Sephiroth (The Hebrew word Sephiroth means Numbers). The consecutive elaboration of the Numbers, are Forces being woven together to form the Harmonic that is the World and are represented by the "small cards" or minor arcana. These woven forces present a World that is 96% invisible to us. However, by combining the colors of the visible spectrum of electromagnetic light, we see that different combinations, make different color changes, such as blue combined with red makes purple, etc. This combinations are the necessary diversity of creation and can be called harmonies.
To a Qabalist, the numbered Sephiroth are either Force or Form and even both depending on the Masculine expressive and Female receptive aspects of a particular Sephira.

Each Ace is unique and is distinct in its degree of density and in its ability to do work as a specific function in the One Energy. Thus, each Ace is the Seed of an Alchemical Element. We think we know what seeds are, but when we look at one, we don't see the Tree it represents. We just "kind of" know. That is also our conceptions of Kether, we just "kind of Know" that it is infinite, but then infinite is a human concept and Kether can't be known.....so this gets a bit tricky. So open mindedness is required and the courage to keep asking questions until answers emerge. The Influence of Kether is all around us, we just have to trust it knows us even if we know it or not. Obviously we exist, and we are a combination of many factors, some unknown to us, so it is easy to trust the subtle. Knowledge built us, and that knowledge is ours to understand.

THE Thoth ACE OF WANDS:
The Ace of Wands represents the Force of Spirit as the Element of Fire. It is the Radical or Root Force of the Fiery Motion that Moves all things.To those of us who need a pattern, the Four Aces are said to be placed at the North Pole of the Universe, where they revolve and govern the revolution  of the Universe. To a Qabalist the Four Aces are the connecting link between Yetzirah (Formative World) and the Material plane.
The Ace of Wands represents the outpouring of energy in the Universe, it is the root of the Powers of Fire and is the influence of Kether (Dark energy) on the level of pure Spirit. It is represented as the Hebrew letter Yod. Yod is related to Kether, not only is it isolated and self contained but it is also the formative graphic root for all other letters of the Hebrew Alphabet. Moreover, the Yod is Phallic. It is the Male-Fire (electric) that rushes out toward the Female-Water (Magnetic).
The Thoth Deck Ace of Wands shows Ten Yods emanating from a primitive burning club. This represents the Primal force behind the entire Tree of Life, that is composed of 10 Sephiroth and their connecting paths of energy transference. The entire Tree is a glyph of  the Power of Fire, i.e. of Spirit. The scholarly student of Qabalah will find that the letter,Shin (Maternal Fire) and Yod are often used interchangeably when referring to the Tree of Life.
THE ACE OF WANDS, of the Thoth Deck, shows a flaming club/Wand with flaming Yods (meaning-hands) going in the directions of the individual Sephiroth on the  Tree of Life . The All Powerful name of God in the Qabalah is Tetragrammaton and the Yod is the first Hebrew letter, of the Hebrew spelling of that name.[ *Note, get The Book of Thoth by Master Theron, for further information.] Being the first letter of Yahweh, Yod, is associated with the English word, "Father".

When you look upon the Ace of Wands, you are viewing the Fire (Father) aspect of the One Energy that is in all things, as well as, in all Sephira on the Tree of Life. The Fire, also represent Spirit which "Knows Itself through Form", and thus is loosely explained as the underlying Fire in all things, but in no way is this a complete understanding of the Spiral Energy {Spirit} that is all around you, in you, below you and above you, but you do not see it as you.

The Ace of Wands represents the "movement within all Motion", which is about as clear a understanding as we can get. The Qabalah, calls it, "....the primordial Energy of the Divine manifesting in Matter", yet it is at so early a stage that it is not definitely formulated as Will (Conscious Spirit).
*Please note, that small cards, known as Minor Arcana are not Divine Persons as are the Atu (Major Arcana). Rather, they are sub elements and/or "blind forces" under the Demiourgos (Creative Intelligence), Tetragrammaton. These "blind forces" are ruled by the Intelligences, in the Yetziratic World, who go forth from the Sechemhamphorach (Lord of the Universe). Lord being Husbandry, he is "keeper of Her Forms"."There was no Father 'till she Named Him Father"is one of the mysteries studied by the Qabalist and relates to the fact that the Father had no form (pure energy) until She-the magnetic womb, gave him form. Now you may think that these ruling intelligences from the Astral/Yetziratic world are the law: however, you are of the Elohim (Children of God) and therefore, the Laws set over these blind forces of the Sephiroth, belong to you! As you perceive them to be, so shall they be! Just as electrons form waves, or straight lines as particles, depending on your "thoughts of electrons". You may call these forces, EMOTIONS! By willful act, emotions are power or the ability to do work; by believing that emotions rule you, you act as chaos, and inability. To believe that there are gods that rule you, you are divorcing yourself from your Divine Inheritance, i.e. a prodigal child.

Now the Element of Spirit (Fire) has its own Lords of the Atu (Magus, Emperor, Hermit etc.) and each Atu possesses it's own private, personal and particular Universe, with all Demiourgos complete, just as EVERY MAN AND WOMAN contain their own particular universe!
  Now all of you are taught that you are built "incomplete" and must seek Goodness (God-ness-----Demiourgos-ness) in order to "make it to heaven".  However,most people actually believe, they are in the image of God, and/or made by God, with the God mind of Imagination (making you a Demiurge), however, this Divine All Knowing, All building, All Creating Power has somehow failed you; It's precious and Divine image, by not completing you......OH COME ON! You are made in a completeness, a Wholeness, that must always identify Itself, to be! Because you belittle your identity----------------doesn't mean God does! The Divine Creative Does Not Build what It Doesn't Want! "ABOVE ALL THINGS, KNOW THYSELF".....YOU ARE A Demiourgos OF YOUR OWN UNIVERSE!

This will take some meditation of thought, which is the "purpose" of the Tarot and the Qabalah. You are blinded by "man-made" definitions of yourself. This blindness is bypassed the Picture Language of the Tarot and the Qabalah and will help you to "see again". Your incompleteness, is an illusion created by the Military Industrial Complex of Rulers, who know the art of "divide and conquer",i.e.man-made spirit by definition, is to be divided, spirit from body, mind from energy, Soul from purpose. We are made of Potential, that makes incompleteness mean "never ending"!
Weakness, requires confusion, division, separation; strength requires Union.
In the world made of seekers, there aren't I AM's, there are Rulers and Slaves... there are "I Ain't s" those who must seek happiness, love, value, etc, all of which is supplied by "somebody else", often called (Saviors), because "God had a bad day when God created you as It's own Image!" Balderdash! Poppycock! and just plain Bullshit! Answers are created, questions are thought of! You are an answer to a question that the Divine Creative thought of! I AM is existence, but raises the question, "What?" The answer is obvious, "ME"! We are the Divine "I AM ME", i.e. Image of God! I know this because "Truth is made manifest", i.e. Created, and is not a thought of question!
 Sorry people, but to believe you came to be judged, is thoughtless. God has day's only when God has Form, because "Days" come from Time/Space and not from the Infinite and Endless! I AM God's Day as Me, is a far more intelligent way to understand this and yourself! I Am the Love of You, is a far greater understanding of Me. 
 
THE ELEMENTAL TAROT, 1 of Fire, is called Lightning (The Divine Masculine is electric). The yellow sky, supports a Orange sun that has the Egyptian Hieroglyphic symbol for lightning. The nineteen radiating red arrow heads represent the initiation and source of primal energy. In more prosaic terms, the ejaculated electric force. The Large Red Triangle that is pointing toward the Sun, represents this masculine principle of Fire, and the open circle represents the womb that is ready to receive this (yod) flame from the sun and therefore a symbol of conception.
Tien-Mu, is one of the Chinese names for the ancient goddess of lightning; once again confusing us about the sexuality of the Divine Creative. Really, it is simple enough to understand, when the Divine Creative ejaculates energy, it is masculine in action, when the Divine Creative weaves energy into forms (imagines it into image), it is feminine in action. Therefore, it is neither sex, but all sexes.

The upper left of the Lightning card, are the symbols for both Mars and Jupiter.
Presented on the lower left of this card, is the Egyptian Ankh, a symbol for eternity and the union of the male and female (Straight phallus, and oval womb), which are the forces of electric and magnetic, that the Dvine Collective Unconscious unites to make all form and movement of form possible. The red triangle at the bottom of the card represents The Elemental Tarot symbol of fire. The dot under the 1, in the upper right, represents the sun.

WHEN THE ACE OF WANDS or 1 of Fire/Lightning IS THROWN DURING A DIVINATION:
  • It signifies a deep burning spiritual desire for self discovery and realization.
  • Trans-formative High Energy for new beginnings.
  • The first impulse and passion to begin.
  • Creative energy and initiative, to begin new business ventures, new understandings, new foundations, where creative energy is flowing with plenty of potential and ambition to succeed.
  • The burning flame of Dragon Power, A balancing and increasing in Potency of Inner Fire . The Souring of Kundalini energy, "the Dragon within".
  • The dawning of desire, passion, enthusiasm and creativity.
  • The Power of Masculine fire, with its connotations of heat, vigor, contest, aspirations, enlightenment, and avidity to consume.
  • The beginning of the overwhelming power of Lust to Be that vibrates at the core of all manifestation.
  • Pure Power to create.
  • Aces are also One Year cards, so for one year, the querent can expect a strong flow of creative energy/Sex energy.
