The Shadow Series; Tarot Card Comparisons: The Four of Wands-Completion and The Shadow Tarot-4 of Primordial Fire/Vassago

THE TAROT OF ELI The Thoth Qabalistic Tarot-4 of Wands-Completion
 reminds us that in order to energetically move forward, we must at first complete what we have already put into motion. The Four of Wands is in the form of a "medicine Wheel", and therefore is a symbol of spiritual and holistic completion so something is being completed, establishing a desire to begin something new.


Being representative of Eastern mandalas or Native American medicine wheels, this card also astrologically represents Venus in Aries; the astrological sign of Venus symbolized on top and the astrological sign of Aries symbolized on the bottom. Also in the wheel itself are the Aries Ram and the Venus Doves, all characteristic of completion and new beginnings in the form of a closed circle.

Therefore this is a Qabalistic card of wholeness and individualization that represents, simultaneously,  completion of past and initiating a new future.

Venus symbolizes emotional desire to move in new directions while Aries represents a sense that there has been completion or consummation of projects, issues or relationships before moving forward.   To repeat, Chesed is Mercy and the 4th Sephiroth on the Qabalistic sigil, the Tree of Life. Chessed is known in Qabalah as the Demiurge or "Lesser Creator" and gives rise to "form and light".  This also makes Chesed both masculine and feminine, as Light is the expression of masculine and form is the receptivity of the Feminine,  Thus, Chesed and Geburah are really "two sides to one coin".  So here we compare Chesed-Mercy and Geburah-Severity or Strength, to the two arms of a human, as one gives and one takes away; For we are the Image of the Demiurge!
 
THE Thoth-FOURS:
 
The Four Fours all bring perfection, realization, completion,  and making a matter settled and fixed.
 The four of Wands is no exception, for here is the Lord of Perfected Work. Attributed to the Four of Wands-Completion, is the planet Venus in the sign of Aries. The angels of the Decan are Nanael and Nithal
 
The Four of Wands is Chesed influencing the realm of Atziluth; the Realm of Pure Spirit. Here, the swift active force of Aries- Mars, is activating the Love and Luxury of Venus.

This placement in an astrological reading would be implying a warm, brief romance, or warm fleeting feelings. As shown by the Classical painting of the Goddess Venus and the God Mars. Lovers, true, but in Tarot, we must be aware of the Placement on the Tree of Life.  Besides romantic feelings, there is a combination of the zodiacal and the Sephirotic meanings  to consider.
 First and foremost is to realize that the zodiac is the mundane Chakra of Chokma, as it appears in the lowest of Four Worlds; Assiah-the active world.  Thus, the Fours represent the totality of that which the planetary signs refer. Venus in Aries, being the outer attribute of the card while the inner attribute is Chesed forces, the pure four ( Fire, Air, Water, Earth), in the world of Yod-Fire.

So what we have in the Four of Wands is Completion of the process initiated by the Upper Trinity, or Supernal Triangle. Here, the manifestation promised by "Will to Form" (Binah) has taken place in Jupiter-Chesed; The Father who resides below the Abyss. Thus this is a dominating influence on all the following cards (5-10) and is the highest idea that can be understood intellectually of the element it represents. Chesed is the Demiurge, who is the First Sephira below the Abyss, making  him the Lord of all Manifested Active  Power.  The original will of Chokmah-Wisdom and Binah-Understanding is now manifest in the Sephira Chesed- Mercy and is now a solid system such as ; Order, Law and Government.
 
Venus in Aries, also removes some of the volcanism of Aries-Mars, and indicates that one can't establish one's work without tact and gentleness.
When examining The Four of Wands-Completion, we see the wands headed by Rams, both signs of Chesed (Father-God Amoun-Ra) and Aries, ending in the Dove of Venus.
  1. The completed and limitation of the original work is shown by the yellow rimed  circle. 
  2. To show balance, the four flames are doubled, suggesting the feminine and masculine balance of the Fours. 
  3. Also being Four, there is no attempt to expand, the original will is complete, so entropy will soon begin. From order to disorder, is the flow of energy in this universe, as accorded by the 2nd law of Thermodynamics.
 
THE SHADOW TAROT-4 OF PRIMORDIAL FIRE/VASSAGO:
Is the third Spirit in order that Solomon bound them, and is a good natured "Mighty Prince of the Damned".



Vassago
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Vassago (also VasagoUsagoo) is the third Goetic demon described in the Lesser Key of Solomon (including Thomas Rudd's variant) as a prince "of a good nature" (despite being a demon) and of the "same nature as Agares". He rules twenty-six legions of spirits, and is summoned to tell magicians of past and future events, and locate lost objects. He is one of the few spirits found in the Lesser Key of Solomon but not in Johann Weyer's Pseudomonarchia Daemonum. Vassago is mentioned in the Book of the Office of Spirits as Usagoo, appearing as an angel, "just and true in all his doings," with the powers of inciting the love of women and revealing hidden treasures, in addition to ruling twenty spirits. Sloane MS 3824 mentions Vassago in invocations to summon spirits that guard treasure, and in the "Experiment of Vassago" and the "Experiment of Agares," both intended to capture the named spirits in crystals. According to Rudd, Vassago is opposed by the Shemhamphorasch angel Sitael.Murderer and vampire-themed cult leader Rod Ferrell used "Vassago" as a "vampire name" and burned a V representing this alias onto his victims.
As explained in the last sentences of the Wikipedia explanation of Vassago, many who despise the hypocrisy of organized religions, use the demonic descriptions of "alien beings", that is supplied by these religions, as an excuse to "do unto others what they don't wish done to them". 

Like I have stated before, all alien beings I have met, Call me Lord, and don't show up in frightening images as they know I won't shudder in fear over their visage, for I am a far more Horrible Beauty than they. Even Anbu (Anubis) shows up as an attractive female rendition of Isis, rather than a jackal faced being (Showing once again the Goddess of Life, is also in charge of Death).
You see, I know we are the Gods of the "Firmament", we are not only the "image of God" we are the inheritors of all that was and will be created. No daemon stands before us; all I have met, demand mercy and show me only willingness to go about their work. In truth, we are the Beautiful Monster's of this Universe and we must learn discrimination, in order to be worthy of our Freedom of Choice, that changes reality. So, before you decide on a Shadow Journey into the Divine Collective Unconscious, of which you are a functioning Self Aware Power, clean up your Act!

Remember  that you are the Master of Life and Death, over the very animal form you make live (breath), and the Earth Herself! Your "Spirit" (Spiral Entity) has invaded from the Stars (Sirius and Orion systems) and daemonically possessed the life on this planet. The Very Elemental intelligences here, serve you! Get to know them! But before you try, "ABOVE ALL THINGS, KNOW THYSELF"!
I, the Fiery Daemon that operates the human form I claim as my Temple on Earth (and many before), knows I AM Me and also knows that all that I see, is another way to be Me (even electrons)! Eli Serabeth ( Is Hermetic Qabalistic Hebrew and means Temple of the Fiery Daemon) and as a Divine Child I have claimed dominion over all that IS, which is my inheritance from the Great Collective Psyche that the Universe is an image of; I am Imagination (I-Magi-Nation)! I am Beautiful, (Tiphareth, the 6th Sephiroth of the Sun which is Our Womb/"Worm-hole" to the physical and is called Beauty) and I am a Monster, because of the freedom I have to observe and change reality; Monstrous abilities without the guidance of discrimination. Therefore, "I do unto others as I would have done to me." I am here to expand and liberate life from it's self imposed limits but without violating it or its freedom to be.
So when you are working with the "night-side" of creation, be aware of your power to influence all things observed.

One calls on Vassago, to provide profound knowledge of things past, and in the future, as well as, to find things lost or hidden.

When the Thoth Four of Wands or The Shadow Tarot-4 of Primordial Fire, is thrown during a reading;
  • It is the key to spiritual and holistic completion.
  • It suggests that the querent is experiencing the completion of something and experiencing the desire to begin something new. 
  • The Four of Wands also implies that ideas are firmly established and proved by their flourishing and it is time to move forward.
  •   The querent is manifesting a new destiny by acting on a sense of direction, supplied by inner Self Knowledge that is forming a new identity. 
  • Here we see celebration and reward after laborious completion of an enterprise.
  •  When this card is thrown it indicates that in the next 4 weeks or 4 months should be a good time to move in new directions while simultaneously completing things.
  • The 4 card also cautions you to make sure that you have completed other issues, projects and relationships before you do move into other directions especially with any important Aries people in your life (March 21- April 21). 
  • May also be a rite of passage. A joyful celebration and reward after labor. A time of rest and relaxation after completing a difficult task.
