Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: Thoth Tarot- 8 of Disks & The Elemental Tarot- 8 of Earth/Mountain.

THE TAROT OF ELIThe Thoth-EIGHT OF DISKS is subtitled - PRUDENCE.
 
Astrologically this card is  Sun in Virgo, the planetary aspect here is a very practice one that tends to cause concern with small details.
Qabalistically, the 8 of Disks (8 of Pentacles in other decks)  is Hod (splendor) in Assiah (the material world).

Prudence in the Material world is not always a great virtue, for often this is the tendency to focus only on the small details while ignoring the bigger picture.

The Divinitory meaning of this card is, skill, prudence,  and over carefulness about small things, at the expense of the great.

However on the positive note, the 8 of Disks also shows the abilities to work steadfastly on knew projects, and having others later on.  Often this is called the Master's card, since it is about focused will, skill with energy and material matters and is the kind of focused state needed for meditations. It is about craftsmanship  that thinks of the work itself rather than the goal of reward.

The unique Thoth Deck 8 of Disks is called PRUDENCE but shows impudence by using Disks, rather than Pentacles or Coins, often shown in other decks. However, the Disk is an appropriate symbol, something on  which Crowley and I both agree.

Disks must be stabilized by a spinning motion, a circular rotational force, in order to hit their mark. Even the atoms of rocks are spinning in a centrifugal manner, so when representing the earthly powers, the spinning of the Disk, with its internal spin best shows force and form as one presence in motion within the crystalline light.
 As stated previously, the Eight of Disks-Prudence, is Hod in Assiah. the material World. The Sun is in Virgo and the angels of this Decan are; Akaiah and Kehethel. 

Virgo is noted to be a very practical sign which tends to cause over concern with small details.
Because this is an eight, any gain that prudence gives is soon dispersed making Prudence no great virtue.
The message in divination, is that of skill, prudence, and over-carefulness about small things, at the expense of the larger.
But because Hod is represented by Mercury and Mercury is exalted in Virgo, there is also predilection for intelligent loving, involving material matters such as, agriculture, artistic craftsmanship, and engineering. 

The Ruler ship of the Sun in Virgo suggests birth, as well, thus the disks are arranged in the Gemantic figure Populus. These disks are then shown as flowers of a Great Tree, rooted solidly in fertile lands.
The Elemental Tarot-8 of Earth/Mountain,
also concentrates its definition on hard work brings rewards. Depicted is an androgynous figure with hands and hair raised to the sky. Implying that this figure in a double earth cube, is receiving energy from above.
The collar has a dual meaning, one of power and one of servitude.
The manifestation of success and material achievement, is shown in the eight orderly golden coins. 
The double cube is sunk into hard rock, representing hard work and paying attention to the details. The Two palms, represent the rewards received after the hard work.
The authors of The Elemental Tarot, Caroline Smith and John Astrop, have declined the traditional astrology of placing planets in houses or signs. Rather, they have placed the glyphs of Saturn and Pluto in the upper left of this card. The unstated purpose of this odd comparison is for the purpose of blending aspects of the two planets, into one explanation of," Tenacity and High achievement."

Saturn having the aspects of time (Cronus), and the stolid consistency of lead, while the Planet Pluto is assigned the occult aspects of Spiritual seeking and being. When forged in the cauldron of passion, could become Tenacity and high achievement.

The god-name, Tai-Yueh-Ta-Ti, is the Chinese Emperor of the eastern Peak.

The Egyptian glyphs, assigned to this card are shown in the lower left hand corner of this card.
The number 8 and its symbol are shown in the upper-right hand corner of this card, while the green square at the card bottom, signifies the element earth.
When the 8 of Disks/Prudence or The Elemental Tarot-8 of Earth/Mountain, is thrown during a reading, the querent is in:
  •   A moment of creative birth of 8 weeks or 8 months, requiring the practice of physical caution, carefulness, and prudence. 
  • A type of physical wisdom radiating from a inner place of balance and integration.
  • Making sure that all the bases are covered; every "t" crossed and and every "i" dotted.
  • Making intelligent choices so that the material world more closely conforms with one's needs. 
  • The possibility of turning a talent or skill into a profession.
  • Skill in work with energy and forms, such as fingers working on a manipulative substance.
The negatives would be focusing to tightly on the small details and not seeing the big picture!
  •  Informs the querent, that Prudence is a short term focus on the small details, baby steps rather than a long term goal.
  • After about 8 wks or 8 months, there will be good influences to start a utilizing your learning as a skill in business or career.
  • This is a card of "talent" (which means hard work and paying attention to the details) and shows the possibility of turning a skill or talent into a profession, or money earned.
  • This card is about turning all that learning of the details, into beginning a profession....from student to beginning Master Craftsmanship.
  • 8 of Disks also calls for caution, for Prudence overdone, resists change. The ability to move with the changes, is success-----but to resist change can only bring failure.
  • The important message here is to  at first pay attention to the details and then focus on the big picture to insure success.
