The Shadow Series. Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Knight of Wands & The Shadow Tarot- Arcturus/Priest

THE TAROT OF ELIThe Thoth ,THE KNIGHT OF WANDS. (Kings in the Golden Dawn and Waite Deck.

There has been much confusion by Tarot readers, concerning the implied meanings of the Court cards and the Kings are no exception.  In the great text book: The Qabalistic Tarot (a text book of mystical philosophy) Robert Wang wrote:
"The four Kings or Figures  mounted on Steeds [Golden Dawn and Crowley versions]  represent Yod forces in the name of each suit, the Radix, Father and commencement of Maternal Forces. A Force in which all the others are implied and of which they form the development and completion. A Force swift and violent in action, but whose effect soon passes away, and therefore symbolized by a Figure on a steed riding swiftly, and clothed in complete amour."
This esoteric meaning may even confuse the issue more, unless the Tarot Reader understands that you cannot separate the Personality from the events that impose themselves upon it.
The Knight of Wands is the motive force behind the Alchemical Fire or Primal Fire (he carries the same wand as the Ace of Wands to illustrate this point). The Knight is a fiery personality with great motivational ability.

Now remember, trying to divide the person from the event is pure folly, so here we have a passionate personality going through a deep-core spiritual event. Old perceptions are being destroyed as fuel on this fire, so that new extended and liberated  perspective gives birth to spiritual insight. You may call this positive male-power, as in electrical polarity, that forms a  swift and occasionally violent personality with the capacity to accomplish long-term goals and handling extremely complex situations but is most often fierce, impetuous , impulsive and tends to act unpredictably. 

To the Astrologer, the Knight of Wands rules in the zodiac from 21 degrees Scorpio to 20 degrees Sagittarius. This tends to establish a personality that can sell "ice to Eskimos" because of his unrelenting charm, built out of amusement and optimism. He may also have an abundance of vision and foresight, all of which is passionately expressed. There is also a degree of intolerance, so when pushed this person can become violent and unrelenting.

Generally, The Knight of Wands is a dominant, hard to control person who is attractive but dangerous.  When united with the Primal Water of Female-Magnetic polarity, this is a most attractive personality, and a deeply motivational event of empathy and healing, most like a warm tropical ocean. He is best in his performance when mated with a strong female equivalent. By himself, his very nature "becomes too hot" and he tends to leave bodies behind him.  As a personal note, for myself, a "Ruby Ray" personality, I am Mated to the proper Female Equivalent (Twin flamed to Elizabeth) and She calls me her Prometheus (fire bearer) and properly directs my passion towards the expanding and liberating of Life. I burn hotly, and happily because of this natural paring of forces and forms. I'd be intolerably impetuous with out Her, as would Chokma without Binah. It is also an important note, that the majority of Suns in this Universe are paired with a twin and are called binary stars.  According to  Modern Astronomers, only about 7 to 10% are single stars. Personal spiritual experience, makes a better reader!
To reiterate: Chokmah is the Father God principle and is the first idea of Maleness. Binah, the Mother God, is the first idea of Femaleness. Here The Divine Creative begins the action of Sexual attraction; of the electric and magnetic actions of the Universal Creation.
This "Divine Sex" is a hard one to explain to the self-absorbed who think sexuality as "pleasing moment" of conquest. Those who have felt the deep and powerful fiery Inner forces of Sexuality (Kundalini) are usually unable to mentally rationalize it. It is a stunning and absolute attraction, like lightning striking. It isn't needy, or manipulative, it is as if two magnets of opposite polarity just "slam" together without resistance of any kind and the rationale finds only futility in trying to explain it. It is so powerful, that there isn't any other person in the world. One just "knows" this is the only mate.  Therefore this purely  spiritual-energetic attraction is beyond rational thinking and the brain is stunned by it's lack of control over the situation.

The Kingdom of Heaven, is all around you, and it is built from the attraction of opposites, To understand this powerful attraction we really have to re-think sexuality and understand the attraction of Chokmah and Binah; of Electric and Magnetic.The Universe is created by this often overwhelming activity of Union.

 Again, the Knights of Thoth, are the Kings in many other decks. To Crowley, a king siting on a throne did not depict the Active power of a King, therefore, he calls them Knights, which are Battle Kings, Armored, on a mighty-charger, undaunted by battle. 
The Knights represent Yod forces in each suit. The Yod is the Radix, and/or Father and commencement of Material Forces. All other forces  are implied here, and as ideas they develop and commence in the Knight. As if volcanic, the Force of the Knight is swift, violent action, that also moves on swiftly. Thus the effects of this force soon pass away.

THE THOTH KNIGHT OF WANDS: is the Lord of Flame and Lightning, king of the spirits of Fire, King of the Salamanders. The last Decan of Scorpio and the first two Decans of Sagittarius are attributed to this card. The Knight of Wands is Specific Fire in Primal Fire on the Tree of Life.
Fire in a alchemical sense, represents the active-vital Spirit Force of Movement that is in all Motion and yet it is also the tempering fire that melds together opposites for the construction of something more than either one. Spirit Fire is Sexuality on a macro-cosmic level.

The Crowley card of the Knight of Wands is all about active force, a leaping black Charger mounted by dark knight, depicting the Dark Fire of Foundational Dark Energy that all Visible Light comes from. That visibility is depicted as surrounding flames. Therefore, the Charger the Dark Knight rides is the equivalent representative of The Shadow Tarot Card-Arcturus/Priest.

The Thoth knights crest is a horse head, implying the influence of Sagittarius, and he is in armor implying the qualities of the Spirit Fire that does battle for us all.  The same Ace of Wands, is the Wand in His hand, implying that he is the vehicle for the Fire Force and is a Solar Phallus.
The characteristics of this Powerful Knight, are qualities of  activity, such as, fierceness, impetuosity, pride, impulsiveness, swiftness in unpredictable actions.
If negative, he is evil-minded, cruel, bigoted, and brutal.  In either case,His swiftness gives him no recourse to act otherwise so he is ill fitted to modify his actions according to circumstances.
The Shadow Tarot, doesn't use separate Court Cards, as the Shadow expression of the 16 archetypal personalities of Modern Psychology. The author of these cards, Linda Falorio, has linked them with the minor arcana.
Here, in Arcturus, she has a Demon of Primordial Fire.  Making sense as Demons are the Shadow side of Angels; or so they seem in Christian mythology.
 This Priest of Primordial Fire, is accorded the uses of the rites of Orion-Osiris-LAM; ruled by Demons of the East and West in Primordial Fire. Primordial Fire is the realm of nuclear fusion, by which stars and planets are formed.

Now I for one, have never found "my darkness", for as I have traveled deeper and deeper into my "Dark Energy" Psyche,i.e. Higher Self. I have only found brighter and brighter burning, until I know that I am the heart of a seething vortex of a Fiery Star "I". Every dark "thing" in any dark place, has not been seen by me, as they are only heard scurrying away, frantically fleeing from my brightness, some sobbing and groveling asking me to stop burning them. I have always been called "Eli Serabeth" (or equivalent there of) on every "nether plane" I have ever entered. As a personality, I am merely a construct, forged out of my Soul's passion to be and the culture I am born into. But as an I AM, I am a Solar Self forged by the Big Bang. I've always known, that to the Earth, I came from the part of the dark Sky, known as Orion. This may sound delusional, but dear reader, none of us who operate the Divine Creative's Self Image (Hu=Chinese for god and Man=Hindu, Manas for Mind) come from the psyche of earth. We are of the invading Nephilim or Annunaki. Some of us are from the Orion area of the sky, or from the Sirius area. We are "Angels who fell to earth" and/or DNA and Psyche of Ancient Astronauts. To Truly Know thyself, you must drop religious separation of spirit and body; cultural definition of whom you are, and go deeply past the "terrified reptile" identity of your "Me"-consciousness, into the  Great Authority of I AM whose frequency can be picked up by activating unused chromosomes in your alien DNA. (Which is the purpose of Kundalini meditations).  Such a realm of The Great I AM is Arcturus. I often dare to postulate that,"Stars, built us to experience themselves" and the planets they impregnate. Know that you are a Star, and get on with your "burning"!


The Star Arcturus, was known to the ancient Egyptians as the God, "Smat, one who rules, Subdues, and governs" and as compared to our sun, one can see why. 

The ancient Greeks knew the Star Arcturus as the "sword", "dagger" or "lance" in the hand of the winter constellation Orion the hunter.
Linda Falorio, the author of The Shadow Tarot, says the magical images to use when invoking Arcturus, are :
  • A horse
  • A wolf
  • A man dancing.
The magical influences are riches, honors, and renown: invoke Arcturus to cure fevers.
The magical tokens are plantain and jasper.


  • WHEN THE KNIGHT OF WANDS or THE SHADOW TAROT ARCTURUS/PRIEST, IS THROWN DURING A READING, it implies;
  • A spiritual evolution is taking place at a deep core level. It is as if the past personality is fuel for a new phoenix- self arising from the flames.
  • Experiencing the conviction of Spirit with much inner to outward movement of energy and the manifestation of leadership skills.
  • Positive male power, complete with the ability to focus on long term goals but with rapid movement that is able to handle complex situations.
  • Strong minded and able to dominate others by force of will.
  • A master of wit and charm, great sense of humor and warm and generous with a strong liking for fun. Can just about persuade anyone into anything.
  • May be a highly empowered spiritual being. Which doesn't necessarily mean he has your best interest at heart. Spirit is Pure Mind, and doesn't see things in a personal way. Very Impersonal force without the conscience of the personal empathy.
  • A mature male whose inner and outer being are in mutual agreement and balance.
  • One whose dark fire and bright fire of Self are in united performance.
Great power, is often seen as arrogance by the weak of conviction, so this person is either Loved or hated, without gray area acquaintances. Those who doubt themselves, will be inclined to follow and thus secretly fear or hate such a powerfully active Spiritual Being who is unconcerned with how others react to them. Also this will be a person with a Great Libido, as Spiritual Fire and Sexuality are invariably linked, this is also a contention amongst the weak; "the weak" being those who serve reaction rather than action.

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

You write-"as a personal note, for myself, a "Ruby Ray" personality, I am Mated to the proper Female Equivalent (Twin flamed to Elizabeth) and She calls me her Prometheus (fire bearer) and properly directs my passion towards the expanding and liberating of Life. I burn hotly, and happily because of this natural paring of forces and forms. I'd be intolerably impetuous with out Her, as would Chokma without Binah. " Is Elizabeth your twin flame? Is that the same as soul mate?

QB, know, she really is my warden. My Soul mate, must be a soul of earthly origins, a real manifested Hel-Aine. I was being generous to Elizabeth, because of her good work with me. She is of Kha-Dro-Ma origin. I am looking forward to my Soul being mated to a reincarnating Helen. Thank you for your comments. May you live long and prosper.
