The Thoth,Ten of Disks-Wealth:
The Astrological sign for this card is Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the representative planet for communication and organizational skills. Virgo is the sign of prosperity and abundance manifested in a tangible way. Therefore, the Thoth 10 of Disks card indicates that all Ten of your conscious states of energy (The Ten Sephiroth of the Tree of Life) contribute to a balanced flow of healing, communication, and organizational skills all accumulating to active function on the physical plane.
Your Spirit and body are manifesting abundance. Obviously this is a card of prosperity and also obviously, it will change, but for now eat, drink and be merry.
One should also understand that Wealth becomes prosperity when we spend it, as our wealth prospers others and thus ourselves, which is also a form of communication.
To reiterate, the Sephiroth, MALKUTH is Earth, that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah. It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are Three Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious.
Assiah is the onlySensual Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life, as they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel the Conscious experiences. But to travel,the other Sephiroth without a body. is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "Five Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I".
To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than five...as many as 10 to 33 (Tantra states there are 33), but that is not for this blog to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree while you still support a physical body.
The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world of spinning atoms, i.e. the Spinning of a Disk. Where the Stability of a Discus is in its spin.I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion.
THE TEN OF DISKS, is Qabalistically called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah.
Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world.
The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This vast materiality is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life, of Ten Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world; it is the Goal Achieved by the Conscious of The Divine Dual Creative.
Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. The Great Work where the vast Mental Riches of The Divine Creative, become manifested/ Physical Self Awareness.
As energy that is Spiral (Spirit), we are "everywhere and no where" at the very moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to discriminate my motion! In other words----"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective and or Self-Definition. This Rocks! I find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually forming reality to my Self Awareness. To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind of The Divine Creative...until now!
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, and have become Adam Khadmon (The Ascended Man) not because we are bad or Lustful (The Lust of Goddess/God built us after all!) but because each and everyone of us, are the accumulated Temple of Wealthy Creation--made alive and sensual! We are the Living Temples Of The Divine Creative!
More sacred than any stone church invented to subdue the slave to another's description of god.
The Divine Creative's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an error"! We Rock "Dudes and Dudesses! "
I Am the Image maker "ME", who can recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"! I AM ME is our name of inheritance!
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria (numerology) which simply means The First Sephira -that is Kether, THE CROWN, is The Above, that we bring to the Below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal! Thus, we are Lust without the Need of result! Lust being the Divine Frenzy, that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life!
When the Ten of Disks is thrown during a reading, the querent is assured of physical prosperity and abundance. But being a Ten, the end of a cycle, means it may be short lived. Therefore, the querent is at a physical cross roads where supply is stable but boredom has set in and is non stimulating. However, the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon arrive.
THE SHADOW TAROT 10 of Worm Holes and Radioactive Neutron Stars/ Berith, is subtitled:
"Inner Wealth. Escape from Destiny. Ancient Wisdom."
As usual, Linda Falorio, the author of The Shadow Tarot displays her awe of the fear based Animal Mind of Earth by assigning a demonic name to this card.
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:

was the god of the Canaanite city, who later came to be viewed as the demon
Baalberith (Lord of Flies) by Christian demonology. According to the Book of Judges, his temple was destroyed when Abimelech
quelled the rising of his subjects. The name denotes a form of
The term "Ba'al" is shown by the equivalent "El-berith" to mean "the God of the Covenant." The 'Covenant' (Hebrew: Berith) to which this refers may refer to treaties such as one with the Canaanite league of which Shechem was the head, or the covenant between Israel and the people of Shechem. The term is considered by some to be too abstract to have been occasioned by a single set of conditions. Moreover, the temple of the god in Shechem implies a permanent establishment. Probably the name and the cult were widespread and ancient (see Baalim), though it is mentioned only in connection with the affairs of Shechem.
Again, an ancient god/goddess, is demonized by the conquers, for the god Baal-Berith,"God of the Covenant", was the law giving deity represented by two stone tablets in the temple of Shechem. Later this Temple was taken over by Hebraic invaders and who transferred the stone tablets and the temple to the worship of the cult of Yahweh. The Commandments on the Stone Tablets (sound familiar?) were based on the Babylonia Code of Hammurabi, received by the Babylonian King from the god Shamash [Hook, M.E.M., 142-147]. These, in turn, were based on the tablets of law given the first god by the Great Mother, Tiamat [Assyr.& Bab. Lit.287]
Again, the ignorance of the revisionists, is apparent as both tablets and title were claimed by the Judeo-Christian God, while the name of Baal-Berith was attached to the devil, who was often invoked by medieval authors on magic, who were unaware that they were calling on the God of the Covenant!
Just goes to prove once again, that scholarship destroys belief in demons and gods as proposed by fundamental religions.
Therefore, by skrying The Shadow Tarot card, you are invoking the God of the Covenant. A very old and therefore, somewhat more powerfilled psychic engine than the demon Berith, who has never had a great following. Have fun.
When the Thoth or The Shadow Tarot card is thrown, it suggests that:
