TAROT CARD COMPARISONS: The Elemental Tarot- 5 of Fire/Furnace and the Thoth Tarot-5 of Wands, Strife.

To the elements, the fives of Tarot represent a bringing of serious problems and  unbalance.

The Five of Wands-Strife, brings quarrel and strife in the Vital energy: The Five of Cups,  brings disappointment to relationships; The Five of Swords, brings defeat to health and mind; The 5 of Disks, brings strangulation to income and business.
All fives seemingly very gloomy; However, the other cards in the divination will show how long the difficulty, as well as,  how serious the fives are to be taken. Really, these nasty old 5's just announce that a difficulty exists and often the solution to the problem at hand is in the rest of the Tarot reading.
THE THOTH FIVE OF WANDS; STRIFE.
This Lord of Strife astrologically is Saturn in Leo, which is the influence of Geburah in the World of  Pure Spirit; Atziluth of the Four Worlds.
Here the powerful heavy effects of Saturn, united with a Fire sign like Leo, brings quarreling and Strife in energy.

The Angels of the Decan are Vahaviah and Yelayel, necessary knowledge for those who wish to call on them.
Wands are a continual outpouring of force, with Saturn influence, this flow of force is agitated  and disturbed, not unlike water flow is disturbed by rocks, causing rapids. Or more likely, as volcanic magma is disturbed by the tons of rock its pushing through.  Thus in the Five of Wands, there is contest unresolved.

Crowley's Thoth Deck Card, shows the nature of the energy rather than its disturbed nature displayed by the Golden Dawn or Ryder-Waite Tarot Decks.
  1.  In the Five of Wands, are shown the Lotus wand of the Golden Dawn Adeptus Minor of Tiphareth,
  2.  The Phoenix Wand of the Adeptus  and;
  3. the Major of Geburah, all crossing  the central wand of the Major Adept. 
The fact that the Major Adept Wand is central is because it's position implies this severity is directed by Geburah, the fifth Sephiroth of Severity, rather than happenstance. The Phoenix wand implies resurrection from the purgation of Fire, while the Lotus Wand is of the Mother.
 
Many people find Geburah a difficult Intelligence to understand because She is a volcanic as Pelé ( Hawaiian Volcano Goddess), all irrational disturbance, yet  these disasters are derived from the benign and gentle influence of the Feminine  that is Great Mother Binah. To me, this just shows Spirits "tough love" for its incarnations. Spirit knows you are the newest and therefore the best built God Image yet, and have the internal strength necessary to  handle anything this Universe can throw at you. Yet, because we often believe the definitions of those who rule definition, we see ourselves as a weakness, trying to become strong.  All because we are taught to believe that mortality is a weakness, rather than the only way to experience discriminative thought and the everlasting courageousness of our Souls. Immortals don't have need of courage.......they don't die.  However, they also don't have sensuality and thus cannot discriminate. Sensuality requires a "beginning and an end", to exist.  The very fact that Soul of you is seeking sensuality by building an incarnate persona, requires severity just to make it so, a fearlessness to make it happen and a desire to form discriminating thought into being! 

For example, a certain amount of friction is required to form energy into creations. Without the severity of friction, force could not become form! Just so, with out the friction of severity in ones life, accomplishment, progress and evolution would not happen! We Souls knowingly build an incarnation, knowing it can be a "crap shoot" and certain severity will be applied!

As stated, the Thoth Deck 5 of Wands-Strife, displays the three wands of the Adepts. It is Geburah in the suit of Fire. Geburah, is on the Left hand path--the Path of the Goddess as  Sephiroth #5 who is the State of Energy Conscious called Severity. Which states a dichotomy of both tame-less irrational energy and the benign and gentle influence of the feminine. This very fact is shown in the stars, as this card is ruled by Saturn in Leo. Leo shows the element of Fire at its strongest and most balanced. While Saturn weighs it down and embitters it.

This is a volcanic energy-conscious---in that it destroys to build up, just as the Hawaiian islands experience volcanoes where there seems to be no end to this energy.
The Middle Wand represented in the Five of Wands, is the Wand of the Chief Adept and shows that the Authority of Severity is derived from superiors; keeping this from being a truly disastrous moment in the Querent's life. There are also two Wands of the Second/ Major Adept Topped with the Head of the Phoenix, these Second Adept wands represent purgation through Fire and the resurrection of the pure energy  from its ashes.
The Minor Wands (or Third Adept) are considered the daughters of the Three of Wands-Virtue which refers to Binah (Great Mother) in the Suit of Fire.

What the student needs is understanding of the destructive benevolence of the 5 of Wands. For what the Fives point out, is the absolute need to tear down the old to build the new and/or wake up the non-productive being with a hot jolt of severe energy (energy-in-motion) to get them moving and producing again. This is righteous movement for rather than destroy a soul who is mired in its own delusions, The Great Mother, would rather shock you back into performance than loose you. This is a card that bespeaks "Tough Love".

The  convincing artistic rendition of Severity, in The Elemental Tarot 5 of Fire/Furnace, depicts a yellow contorted figure, with one supporting hand touching the earth and the other reaching for the sky.  As if that isn't severe enough, three yellow hands point with thumb and forefinger, as if to pinch the contortionist.  Below, are jagged teeth, another threat to the acrobat.

The blue pentagram, in The Elemental Tarot, implies change, while in the background two figures are locked in combat.
Rather than Saturn in the house of Leo, the authors of The Elemental tarot attribute the Sun and Uranus to this card. The say this represents excitement, upset and rebellion. Now as a Qabalist, numerologist and minor league astrologer, I find this to be ignorant of Astrology. Maybe they mean the Sun is in conjunction with Uranus ?  Since the Sun is a personal planet, Uranus conjunct would really "screw" up the solar energy. However, each to his/her own and this is indeed a unique way to view the planets whose symbols are on the top left of this card. At the lower left are the Egyptian glyphs for this card of fire.  Upper right are displayed the symbols for the number five, and on the very bottom is The Elemental Tarots red triangle, that symbolizes the element of fire.
The African god of iron and steel, is Ogoun.


When the Five of Wands Or The Five of Fire/Furnace, is thrown during a divination, it implies that the querent:
  • Is involve in a spiritual conflict. This frustrating conflict can ensue for 5 weeks or 5 months because of this confusion of ideas.  The solution of which depends on the diligence of the querent.
  • Here, the querent is adjusting the identity, struggling with self-doubt while striving to move forward.
  •  There maybe a struggle or strenuous warfare- like competition for riches and success, a kind of battle in life. 
  • The querent might also feel like they are in a impasse, powerless in a time of trial and difficulty. 
  • The Querent will experience in 5-wks or 5-months, Strife, quarreling, fighting,violent contest, and even boldness and rashness.
  • There could be cruelty,lust, and desire---overwhelmingly so, prodigality and generosity as well.
  • The lay of the cards will show the dignity but anyway you look at it , an eruption of energy-in-motion directed by a "Higher Power" is upon the Querent and no matter how fearfully viewed or painful the experience, it is for the benevolent purpose of revitalizing the Querent.
Thank you for your interest, comments and generous donations. May you live long and prosper!
