Thoth Tarot & comparisons

TAROT CARD COMPARISONS: The Elemental Tarot 6 of Fire/Torch and the Thoth Tarot 6 of Wands Victory

The Sixes of Tarot are all ruled by the 6th Sephiroth, Tiphareth-Beauty, on the Qabalisitic Tree of Life. The Key symbols relating to Tiphareth, Beauty;
  1) the Cube, which is based on 6, a form taken twice-over in the double cubed Altar of Malkuth (Physical world).
2.) The Six-sided figure of the Truncated Pyramid (its top is cut off) that represents Adam Khadmon, the six lower Sephiroth. Adam Khadmon is the ascended man or Archetypal Human, above him, completing the Pyramid are the Supernal, Kether, Chokmah and Binah.
Then, there is the Calvary Cross, properly drawn as black, unequal armed, surrounded by a circle and mounted on three steps. The Calvary Cross implies Wisdom through Sacrifice.
The Rose cross and the Rose Cross Lamen, are the other powerful Tiphareth symbols.
 
THE SIXES. represent definite accomplishment and carrying out of a matter.
Success with the result of effort, is the underlying current of all sixes. In the World of energy, Atziluth, this means Victory.  Where as in Briah, the World of Pleasure, happiness is a direct result of working for it. In the world of quarreling and Strife, Yetzirah, strife brings success. While, in Assiah, the world of business, and commerce among men, this means material success.

THE SIX OF WANDS-VICTORY: Lord of Victory.
Here Jupiter is in Leo, and the Angels of the Decan are:, Nelokhiel and Yeyayel.
In the Six of Wands, we have the benevolence of Jupiter in the Fiery Sign of Leo,(Sun)  which brings success and warm relationships.  However, it is an aspect that suggest some drama and of victory after great effort. This Thoth Crowley card, shows the Wands of the Three Adepts (of Golden Dawn ritual) crossed in a perfect balance of power. As each Adept must go through initiations involving varying degrees of Strife, this card of Wands, suggests victory after strife. 
 
It is to be noted, that the upright Flames, lantern like at each crossing,  are in a number of  9; the number of Yesod and the Moon. This shows energy stabilization of the Energy, and its reception and reflection by the Feminine Magnetic Principle. There is no circle around it, because it is self-supporting like the Sun.
When this card is thrown during a reading the Querent is assured of victory, but victory only comes after a struggle. so don't celebrate prematurely. There is implied a short lived victory with all blockages overcome but by trusting the Stability of the Higher Self, the Victory is long lasting.

The Thoth Deck 6 of Wands
features the Wands of the:

  1. Chief Adept (Winged-Serpent -Eye).
  2.  Major Adept (Phoenix headed) and the:
  3.  Minor Adept (unfolded lotus bud), shown previously in the 5 of Wands-Severity;

However in the 6, the Energy of the Wands is coordinated and completely balanced in manifestation, as shown by the flames all of equal size and upright.
This card represents Tiphareth (The Christ-Buddha conscious) in the Suit of Fire (Spirit).  As I stated, this card also represents the planet Jupiter in Leo and tends toward the application of a benediction on the harmony and beauty of this arrangement of Wands.

As always, the feminine influence is represented in this card by the Nine Flames that refer to Yesod (foundation) and the Moon (Magnetic Force). Since the feminine magnetic energy is in charge of all form making, this is a energy form that is as  self supporting as the Sun.  There is a glow suggested of Spiritual Will that has overcome the Severity of the Five of Wands. This card also helps us understand that Victory only comes after conflict is overcome.

The Elemental Tarot 6 of Fire/Torch
The
suggestion of Victory is shown by the laurel leaves of Victory about the heroic male head. His face is concealed in a protecting mask that also denotes transformation. The Egyptian pictograph above his head, represents victory. Laurel leaves also decorate the two columns on either side of the figure. The cone like symbols represent lotus flowers, which are the sacred flower of the
feminine aspect of the Divine Creative. The 6 leaves, and 6 flowers, depict a perfect balance of Masculine force and Feminine Form.

Below the head, is a lion, representing courage, fortitude and Power. With these lion like attributes also comes, cruelty, and ferocity.
Instead of Jupiter in Leo, as would be proper astrological assignation, the authors of The Elemental Tarot choose to link a planet to a planet, Jupiter /Pluto, which in astrology would be Jupiter conjunct with Pluto. However, one chooses to understand this, the objective of the planet to planet union is to explain the primary character of the card which is; attainment of power and leadership.
The Greek Goddess of Victory, Nike is the deity assigned to this card.


So when the 6 of Wands-Victory or the 6 of Fire/Torch card is thrown during a reading, and depending on its position, it can mean:

  • Gain and success in 6 weeks or 6 months.
  • We have here, victory after strife caused by industriousness, energy expression, love and pleasure gained by labor.  
  •  There is also a suggestion of Victory gained by avoiding strife through actions of sociability and carefulness.
  • Victory may be a brief moment of pleasure after a grueling contest, but nevertheless, it is enjoyable at the moment and should be savored but not rested upon.
  • Confidence and belief in yourself are the necessary tools here and it looks like they have been achieved with some major breakthrough in insight and creativity happening in the next 6 weeks or 6 months.
  • The querent is showing secure knowledge of self identity and displays self confidence in leadership abilities.
  • There is in the querent a  purposeful sense of direction and purpose.
  • Then of course, is the ill dignity of  insolence, pride of riches, and vain-glory as ill dignity depends on the conflict depicted in the surrounding cards.

Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations. May you live long and prosper!
