The Shadow Series, Tarot Card Comparisons; Thoth Tarot- 7 of Wands & The Shadow Tarot-7 of Primordial Fire/ Ipos

THE TAROT OF ELINetzach, is that green Sephiroth on the lower illustrated Tree of Life, courtesy of the Qabalistic Tarot, text book, by Robert Wang.
Green is the color attributed to Venus, the planet of Netzach. Love, feelings and instinct,the Group Mind, Nature, and the Arts, all radiate from this Sephiroth. The Symbols for Netzach are The Girdle, The Rose, and the Lamp.

Netzach is the first Sephiroth of the Astral triangle and is the first energy intelligence to make up the personality of the individual.

You may remember that I stated that the Personality is made up of the Four Alchemical Elements, each of which are represented by the lower Sephira, in the familiar sequence of Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Netzach is Fire, Hod is Water, Yesod is Air and Malkuth is Earth.
Netzach is the lower form of the fiery Yod of Chokmah that is reflected from Geburah through Tiphareth. This is the formula for Yod Heh Vau Heh, Malkuth being the final Heh, because of the "fall" which is really a condensing or "down sizing" of Self. 

In Netzach, normal waking consciousness of the student, must deal with the Astral Triangle and the component parts of the Personality, after all, we are not of the Personality, it is of Our Spiritual Nature!  Personalities are sentient software programs, like Artificial Intelligence, that are created to facilitate the Soul's operation of the body-hardware, and are supplanted in the wet-ware brain to manipulate the physical body properly. However, if your personality was made for you out of the illusions, delusions, and ambitions of "Authority", than you haven't a clue who is operating the body, as you don't know the code and language that went into making the software your body is operating from! Then to make matters more confusing,  the "sentience" that the culturally made software is connected to, is the "Cultural Group Soul", and not the identity of the Original Soul/Psyche that came from the Divine Collective Unconscious. So now most people are bound to the Karma of their Culture rather than working out the karma of individual evolution. You have become a number in the "rabble herd" rather than a master of your own force and form.This was done when you transferred loyalty from yourself to loyalty to the culture (sometime during childhood). Yet again the axiom of Qaballah: "Above all things, Know thyself!" rings true!

The most important part of initiation begins by "lighting the inner lamp" of spiritual consciousness so that one may observe the layers of lies piled high in the subconscious (that your personality is constructed from), removing layer after layer of false you, until the real you shines true. This "Garbage in" is called man-made persona and the "Garbage out" is the dysfunctional action of "seeking yourself" in the eyes of your peers, or of outside authority. You are already God approved----you exist, and your Software for operating the Hardware, was already created by the Higher Self, that is the sentience of your original personality, one may call this Higher Self, "the Soul".

Often, Mystery schools use a set of Tattva exercises as a type of "controlled day dream" (guided meditations), intended to bring the student into direct contact with the subtle Elemental realms immediately underlying the material sphere of sensation. Often, I bring those Elemental realms into sensual manifestation for my students, all of which is necessary to prepare the student for more advance techniques of skrying with Tarot Cards.
It should be understood, that the astral realm beginning with Netzach, is a fluidic, non-solid realm where everything begins in illusion/dream. It is the place, where our Formative consciousness can experiment with image, such as children role-playing, in order to comprehend in a later  more condensed stage of growth, the actual manifestation of being "that". If thought is done with controlled will, this astral experimentation is a boon to any creative endeavor on Earth; if your thoughts are taken as rote, all hell will break loose on earth as you unleash the animal survival mind and its fears of death!

The Astral plane and its denizens, nor your reptile brain (survival mind) are not a Master of your personality! Nor is anything that you contact in the lower or higher realms, i.e. Pleroma! The Astral is a psycho-mailable electromagnetic-substance to create with, not be created by!  Most " Medium-Channels" just channel astral persona's, and live in an illusion of devotional thought, not allowing them to see the delusions.

Let me explain what few wish you to know: A god is a dominate Consciousness on its Plane of Dominion. Every one of the Ten Sephiroth, is a master of its domain, and you are composed of the United cooperation of these energy intelligences we call "Gods, Djinn, Demons, Daemons, Angels etc.", which contribute to the make up the One Self as the "Divine Collective Unconscious". And you're are one better, because you have also composed a body of the physical "god", Top Mammal Predator", ruler of its domain Earth, i.e. the Human body who looks to rule solar systems! So, You, are a Great Group of Ten Elder Spiritual Entities, who should be working as One Group Soul of your individual Tree of Life...A One or Wholly Spirit (Spiral electromagnetic entity). The fact that you are not, is because you've been mentally separated from the reality of your divinity! This was done by the manipulation of your imagination,(auto-suggestion and pleasure/pain training) by "The few who wish to rule the many". This auto-suggestion is now Electronically media run to such an extent that it seems futile to resist it! 
However, the Astrals are the beginning of formation, on earth, each astral dimension a degree less in condensation than the next (As seen in the Human Aura and/or God-Mind Aura). The Astral substance is stimulated by focused emotional thought, and becomes manifest through the manipulations of the thoughts of the image creator (the imagination-your God-Psyche).  Therefore, by giving you "nightmare" stories of how bad your natural body is, those who seek authority over your body, have supplied you with images of yourself that devalued the spirit and body by divisionism, racism, cultural enemy propaganda, and theology.  Therefore by the illusion of peer pressure, you the Master of this masterpiece, forgot it is a "god-body" (Image of God) of its domain!
We all must return consciously to the Astral and clean up our software, by facing and deconstructing all the false identities that make up our consciousness!

When we are dealing with Netzach, we are dealing with understanding a particularly difficult State of energy conscious . Netzach is where both the Macrocosm and Microcosm meet. Thus we are dealing with the understanding of the entire race patterns of human kind, and patterns of individual persona and that of the Greater Self. But if that isn't enough, we must understand that this dichotomy is in itself an illusion! For the Greater Self, the Divine Creative, see's itself as you! Here we have the Brahma (Indian God of Creation) dreaming its you! 

By acknowledging yourself as the "Divine Child" of the Divine Creative, through ritual, divination, and meditation you will awakened Brahma to your presence, who then awakens the "Inner Krishna".  As seen in the below illustration of Lord Brahma praying to Lord Krishna, your "inner Krishna" will begin to hear the "Prayers" of the Divine Creative and become lucid in its dream of being you, and therefore willingly assist you in all your worthy endeavors. Therefore the Cultural group soul and its minions who enforce the "ruler's definitions", will itself loose all contact with you, freeing you to be what your "inner self" created you to be.
The Thoth Seven Of Wands: Valor:
tarot card, represents the unbalancing of a previous spiritual victory, by the dynamic flow of transformational energy all around

Things change. Just when we thought we were victorious over the emotional, spiritual and physical resistance to our vision some issues change and we have to exercise bravery, and valor to not doubt ourselves or our vision and therefore procure it.

This departure from balance tends to direct us to loss of confidence; However, if we hold to our vision and trust our inner integrity, we shall still achieve our goal. This "stick-too-iveness" is shown astrologically, as Mars is in Leo and influences this card. Mars represents a dynamic vitality, an agitation of motion while Leo represents creativity and/or creative expression, suggesting that you don't try to stop the new motion in your life but instead become creative in channeling it, uncompromisingly, towards your vision. All of this dynamic vitality and agitation of motions is represented by the wands on the Thoth Card.
  1. The central wand is the inner self trust gained by experience.
  2. The lotus wand  represents the unfolding of your vision if you show the valor necessary to carry on and not be deterred by conflict.
  3. The Ibis headed wands represent the new directions that allow you to move in new regenerative ways that you value. By showing valor in the face of adversity, you will be able to see things more clearly and be able to honor your vision and creativity which is represented by;
  4.  The winged Eye of Horus wands (a symbol of the All Seeing Eye).

Netzach, the Seventh Sephiroth, is Love, as relating to the often misunderstood concept of "God is Love." This Misunderstanding has to do with the very nature of the gods themselves. In the Mysteries, it is said that, "The Gods are the Creations of the Created...the Gods are the emanations of the Group Mind of Races, they are not emanations of Eheieh, the One and the Eternal." {Quoted from the: Qabalisitc Tarot, by Robert Wang, page 100)
 In essence, this reference to the Group Mind, that the Gods are of Netzach- Victory. Graphically, the diagram of the sign of Venus superimposed over the Tree of Life, represents this concept.
This should open your eyes to your power, as The living Suns ( Sons and Daughters) of the One Eheieh-God. You have the power to  form potent forces into your own image, to serve your needs! Because your Personality begins in the Realm of the Gods, you are a Personal God in your own right!
Look, your human body is the Animal God of Earth. Every single living creature on earth, depends on what you do! If you decide they no longer can serve you----------you destroy them. If in your ignorance, you are not responsible for your actions, your irresponsibility alone will annihilate them! Only Gods have such power in their domains! In the Qaballah, you are composed of 10 Gods, in an orgy of cooperation. You are Adam Kadmon, the entire Tree of Life. You are a God on every plane of intelligent energy, by inheritance, sure. But that doesn't make the wealth less! 

To make the "Above as the Below", i.e. the Great Work,  is to realized yourself as sole owner and ruler of your own Animal god, and claim it as your "Sacred Place" in Time. You are infinite Mind Space, within your Divine Unconscious, are all the dreams of Being.  With your conscious presence, Life is the Lucid Dream of God!  Force of Will and Time is the stuff you create forms from, by mixing beginning and end- time- in a cauldron of Thoughts, (Mind) heated by the vibrations of Lust/Passion, and shaped by Will-to-Form,  the greater-you transforms the illusion of being into a sensual reality. This, of course, is a simplistic representation, that is why the Tree of Life is so important to Know. The Tree of Life represents the complexity of  Force and Form and how this Created Living Universe is made manifest! By knowing yourself, you can then realized the original data you set aside in down-sizing and know how to proceed with the Great Work of I AM ME!
WE ARE THE MANY AND THE ONE.  Everything I see, is another way to be Me!

The Seven of Wands, Valor (Lord of Valor) is, as previously stated, attributed to Mars in Leo. The Angels of this Decan are: Mahashiah and Lelahel.  Here, we have the influence of Netzach in the World of Pure Spirit (Atziluth).
Mars in Leo not only promotes courage and strength, but also a certainty of a fiery clash. However, victory in this fray is not certain.
Thus, Crowley, using the Three Adept Wands of the Golden Dawn, crosses them with a crude fiery club, suggesting a disorganized and disordered of uncertain results. In short, the army is in disarray, a loss of confidence is implied and only individual valor will save the day!
The Shadow Tarot, 7 of Primordial Fire/Ipos, also is about valor, spiritual realization, and inspiration. However, it represents this in a round about way by using Christian Demonology as the beneficial entity of these powers instead of the Sephirotic Entity Netzack.

Ipos is categorized as the 22nd spirit, in order as Solomon bound them, and is an "Earl and Mighty Prince of Hell". All of which are morbid delusions of the celibate and enslaved monk psyche who hated, rightfully or otherwise, Earls, Dukes, Barons, Kings and Women. But be that as it may, Ipos is said to give one the power to learn the truth of all things and to become witty and bold.
Ipos is reported to appear as the illustration of Statuary depicts. Again, no knowledge of anatomy or how it works is shown here.
But it is fun, and many prefer to think they have master-control over "horrible beings", thereby proving their power, which greatly inflates the fear based "flabby ego".
Those who are magi, know that we are already, by Declaration of the Divine Creative, "Masters of All that we see"; yes this means all of us, an not just those who wish to rule everyone else, in a delusional vision to avoid discomfort.

I recommend being the Great Daemon of Chaos, master of entropy, that you really are, therefore freeing the limits of matter for Forcing greater Form! (See past blogs). That takes work, and a greater knowledge of self, not drugs or superstitious fantasies.

For the lazy of brain, it is just more fun to dance in the neurosis of fear of death and drugging away the child fear of pain, thereby making believe you've conquered fear of pain and death by chemical desensitizing and imagining fearful images that bow to your needs.

However, in this Universe, you are the microcosm of the Macrocosmic self, therefore you are the Lords and Ladies of the Greater Self. Plus, your physical body is a pharmacopeia of exotic chemistry that can be released by "raising the Kundalini", requiring ritual meditations, knowledge of  metaphysics, focused will and determination.

So by all means, have fun being an Astral creative, and create " psycho-astral engines to assist you" (for that is what all these gods, goddesses and angels and demons are) but do not delude yourself that what you create, be it beautiful or monstrous, is in anyway your master; for in reality, it is your pleasure to be thrilled by danger or beauty (it is well known that witnessing horrible dangerous death stimulates sexual juices and that beauty is often dangerous).  Besides, psycho-astral engines aid your performance as a Divine Creative Child/Daemon/Djinn;  born of chaos, as a "free will".  

Never forget we are Dragons, "the children of the Morning Star", without the silly wings, horns, tails, and fiery indigestion. Out fire is the inner fire of the Stars, our Horns are the "Green man" of Earth, our Wings are the Ships of the Annunaki (Nommo) and our creative Imagination that invents technology and frees us from the Ground; in the Seas, we are greater than the whale and as playful a pack of wolves as any porpoise pod. The T-Rex, in all its viscous glory, could not meet the horrible destructiveness of our weapons.  The Planet cannot give us boundaries, for we devour them and dance on the Moon. We are the Divine Creative's "out-side-the-law children" who by observation, change the very actions of electrons freeing them from the laws of wave or particle and each, seeing their own reality. I AM ME!

When the Seven of Wands-Valor, or The Shadow Tarot 7 of Primordial Fire/Ipos is thrown during a reading, it implies that the querent;
  •  More confidence is needed to ensure victory.
  • The Querent's self-responsibility must be taken up as their standard, and they must stand alone, trusting their-self to handle the most difficult of situations.
  • Is unsure of ideas, and must summon personal bravery and courage to instigate them.
  • Your mettle is being tested, and only the inner courage of spirit has the necessary acceleration to push you through the line of resistance.
  • This card also shows how valuable you are to spirit, for if you were "weak" spirit wouldn't be testing your mettle.
  • Spirit knows your strength, and only the doubting thoughts trained into you by "others" is slowing your performance as a courageous creator.
  • Here Spirit says,"If you wish to speak to me, you must stand! For I'll not kneel to your imagined weakness!"
  • That in the next 7 weeks or 7 months it is important that you have the courage and valor to stay with what you value, especially with the Leo people in your life ( July 21 to August 21).
  • It is important that you stay by what you value concerning work, career and/or creative expression by not compromising or settling for less. Stick to your guns-so to speak.
  • Trust yourself and your valued experiences.
