Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot, key 17-The Star and the Babylonian Tarot, key 17-The Star/Siduri

The Tarot of EliIn the Thoth Deck, Key 17 THE STAR is the path of Tzaddi. The word Tzaddi means fishhook and the Path is the Path of Meditation. Meditation is the fishhook on this path that properly attaches us to The Divine Collective Unconscious, using our imagination. Imagination is than being the proper approach to this Divine Intelligent Energy.

As we can see on the Thoth Star Card, there are two streams of  Divine Energy:
  1. one from the Golden Cup (Solar womb) and
  2. one from the Silver Cup (Moon womb) that flow through the Divine Mother to us by the integration of Chokma- Will to Force- (intuition/feelings) and Binah-Will to Form(intellect/consciousness). Many of us forget that the Imagination is a Womb-with-a view---and is the Consciousness of the Divine Mother of all Forms. We forgot this because we have been taught by our Patriarchal society that imagination is a world-wind creator of fantasy and to be considered beneath our rational-worded- linear thought. We have somehow forgotten the meaning of Image-maker-conscious. "It's Just your imagination," is a common  "put down"theme and uses denial to ignore the fact that: .
It's Just God's Imagination that created all that you can see, hear, feel , smell and touch including YOU! What else do you think a Self-Image is? It is imagined self identity!

 Water is a Mysteries symbol for the ebb and flow of consciousness , and Binah, is the Vast Sea of the Un-Conscious (meaning "not of consciousness"), which by meditation, we cast our consciousness into and thereby find a understanding of the process of life and death.

In the Thirty Two Paths of Wisdom, by Paul Foster Case, The Path of Tzaddi  is described as the Path of the Natural Intelligence. To the Student of the Gnosis of Qabalah, this suggests that the primal forces of nature attributed to Netzach (Victory), the Elohim are synonymous with nature itself. You'll need to study the Word Elohim to understand this in greater detail, but they are called the Gods of Netzach....which means ruling forces.Which is whom we are, as physics has proven; by our observation alone, we change the observed !

To aid further understanding, the Number 17 reduces to 8, which is the Lust Card-Key 8 in the Thoth Deck,which represents the conscious control of the Kundalini, that is both solar and sexual force. I call the Lust Card the image of"Riding the Dragon" ----being in conscious union and thus control of the Divine Frenzy as your life expression. In other-words, the Impersonal Power of I AM becoming a conscious manifestation of Me...a personal expression of identified Power.

This is all part of the Greater Mysteries of Tiphareth, the Solar Logos which is the central Star of our Existence (our Solar Core). Only by controlling the Sexual energy in ourselves---the Kundalini [Lion-Serpent] can we travel the path to Tiphareth. However, this fact has been perverted by believing that Sexual energy, must be oppressed (made celebrate) to approach our Christos----but Creation and the Star card suggests otherwise!

We must combine, through communion of He and She the flowing serpentine force with willful union of intuition, feelings, and intellect in order to flow to our Solar Core.

This is the mystery of Tantric, Gnostic and Qabalistic practices and what some may call "Sex-Magic"----or "Sex-Magi". What it really represents, is the technology of sex.

Our ignorance of the Sexual Communion is not only showing us how the great Mother is disabused by fear based Patriarchal rule, but that all sexual perversion (celibacy is a perversion) diverts us from the path of Tzaddi, and we are unable to control the lust filled passions of the Divine Frenzy within us, thereby becoming mental, emotional and physical deviates of a chaotic separation of union; i.e. Division-ism.

Great enlightenment comes to the student who studies this Path and as many before, we realize that by not understanding the Divine Frenzy within----we become murders, rapist, and violence becomes our sexual activity.
The Process of approaching the Solar Center, is a yoga (yoga means--communion), involving the enervation of centers of energy (Chakras--means "spinning wheels") which open up our Energy Centers through the process of meditation and sexual communion.

As Paul Foster Case stated, about the Path of Tzaddi, "Through it is consummated and perfected the Nature of  every existing thing beneath the Sun".

When meditation is successful, we find that we don't meditate, but rather we are meditated into image! We may understand better if we think of Tiphareth, The Higher  Self/Solar Logos, as a kind of fisherman, who by angling with the Fishhook of meditation, pulls our personality up into the Solar Self.  From that Higher Perspective our personality can see that the self-image of form is meditated into existence.

The formation of the individual consciousness from the Divine Collective Unconscious begins from the point of Netzach, which is the highest level of "personality" while Tiphareth is the highest level to be reached by intellect.The object is to hold a "Holy Mass" where the Personality and the Intellect are joined in Communion, within the honeymoon suite that is The Solar Logos.

The  Thoth Star Card figure, represents the most pure manifestation of the Great Mother Binah at the level of Personality, preceding enclosure in matter. She is the Same  figure found in The Empress, in her royal regalia, The High Priestess and in The Universe cards; However, here She is unveiled, robe-less,  further representing Her purity. 

The Babylonian Tarot, key 17, The Star/Siduri, is also about the Pure and Wise goddess. Illustrated on the card, is the Sumero-Babylonian goddess of brewing.  Besides being the proprietress of an ale house, she is also the Sea Goddess; the ale house served as her palace at the edge of the  abysmal ocean known as the "Waters of Death". Beyond this Death Ocean, is the land where the immortal Utnaphistim lives. Siduri, is considered a manifestation of Ishtar/Inanna, as well as the goddess of wisdom.
 In theEpic of Gilgamesh, after much journeying, Gilgamesh encounters Siduri and explains his grief over the death of his friend Enkidu and his own search for eternal life.  After attempts of consoling him, and getting Gilgamesh to except his mortal life, she gives in to his sobbing grief and tells him how to find the ferryman, Urshanabi, who can take him across the Death Sea and thereby find Utnaphistim and his secret of immortality. In the story, Siduri gives Gilgamesh the hope he needs to fulfill his journey from mortal personality to immortal Higher Self.

The Star is associated with the love and inspirational sign of  Aquarius. In the ancient world, Saturn was said to govern Aquarius, referring us to Binah, form and Time as well as the Tarot card-  The Universe key 21. 
Because the Star card represents the universe resolved into its ultimate elements, it relates to many more Paths than any other card in the deck. Thus, I recommend getting the text book by Robert Wang---The Qabalistic Tarot ( A text book of Mystical Philosophy) and studying the many path Charts on the Tree of Life that he presents in the book.

To the Qabalist, the Star card represents the "Lower Eden", from which the Personality originates. The Emperor, Key 4, represents "Upper Eden" where the Fiery Higher Self originates;The Solar Logos. Here to, we see a relationship of The Star Path (Tzaddi-"fish hook") relating to another Path, that of the Emperor (Heh-"Water").

The Star card also relates to the Planet Venus, which to the ancients was seen as the "Morning and Evening Star", also referred to as Lucifer, the "Most beautiful of all Archangels", analogous to the Sephiroth Tiphareth-Beauty, which is the manifested Solar Logos.  In Qabalah, a Gnosis, Lucifer is not seen as a underworld figure, but rather the Higher Self, but with proper enforcement of propaganda, you can be made to believe that "The Higher Self" is a "Savior" called Jesus the Christ (from the Greek: Zeus Christos), who is a Son/Sun god separate from you.  Therefore, after the " War Lord" religions took over cultural programing, the meaning of Beauty (Synchronicity) and/or The Higher Self became a Underworld Angel who was so narcissistic that he challenged God. Yet in truth, this propaganda means to a scholar, that the English -Jesus Christ was the Latin-Lucifer and that god hated his own beautiful Son/Sun?

We all must study history to see how the Jews, Muslims and Christians took the names of gods and goddesses of other religions and demonized them, which only contributed to ignorance, confusion and lost self-awareness. The truth is that the Latin word Lucifer (Morning Star) is analogous to the Greek Christos, meaning Sun, also Zeus Christos or Sun of God, relating to the fiery Sun of God, the English words- Jesus the Christ, and The Solar Logos and/or our Higher Self! Thereby proving that revisionism, is just another word for confusion.
When the Star Card-Key 17, is thrown during a reading the querent:
  • Shall be or will be experiencing hope, faith and unexpected help for 17 weeks or 17 months.
  • Self esteem and confidence contributing to self-efficiency and talent. 
  • The querent, upon meditating, shall hear their own song (sound frequency), becoming harmony and then emoting  love, calm and peaceful agility.
  • An expanded and liberated personality change is in the works.
  •  Hope, faith and expected spiritual help combine.
  •  Basically the querent is or will be, experiencing freedom from all masks, illusions and restrictions while being replenished by the pure waters of the Universal Unconscious.
  • If ill defined, a dreaminess, and reality disconnect can be in the works, and one should be cautioned about being to ethereal and forgetting the physical which is an important Chalice in our Christ hood.
  • There can be the experiencing of  dreaminess, and deceived hope.

I must say, I have never seen a picture of anyone grabbing some Jesus crotch before. That angel must not understand her Divine Frenzy.

Though, other than necessary upkeep, why is it important to not be too disconnected from the physical? What negative side effects are there to forgetting the physical?

May you live long and prosper.

For one, lack of sensual connection to creation, the other reasons are uncompleted manifestation, where the Psychic is lost in dreams and forgetting to establish itself in this more concentrated realm of Psyche. Another is not doing the Great Work, which is to bring the Above Intelligence to the Below world of matter; then there is lack of Self Awareness and inability to discern. Forgetting the physical is not progress, it is digression, for we began as "non-physical". The Angel represents the Great Sea Goddess, and the Christ on a Cross, is the Solar Logos Manifesting in the human form (unequal armed cross is a symbol that represents the human body). Therefore this picture depicts reclamation by the Great Mother of Form, of her Sun/Son. Another way to view death. Thank you for your interest and stimulating questions. May you live long and prosper.
