Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-2 of Wands & The Babylonian Tarot , 2 of Wands-Dominion

The Tarot of Eli Both the Thoth Two Of Wands and the Babylonian Tarot, 2 of Wands are called, Dominion and both represent the state of dominion, balance, and integration. We are now well into the Minor Arcana, which consists of 40 cards which show the various ways the Major Arcana (22-keys of the Trump) are objectively experienced in day-to-day living.  The Major Arcana or Atu, are states of Universal Consciousness, and the Minor Arcana are how the Universal expresses itself as an individual consciousness.
The Thoth Two of Wands shows two Dorjes (Tibetan symbols of Lightning/power). The symbol of crossed Dorjes represents, optimum balance of energy, the sense of sovereignty and being comfortable with your domain which can be called Personal Unified sacred power.

The horse heads on the Khadroma-crowns symbolize spiritual power and the serpents at the base of the arrow heads, represent the regenerative power  and healing that comes from this power balance.

Astrologically , both cards represents Mars in Aries. Mars being the planet of vitality, energy, and assertion: Aries is the astrological symbol of exploration and pioneering.

The ram heads on the Babylonian Tarot card represents the sign of Aries and also the Wand of Ea, the god of magic and incantation.
In their particular style, the Babylonian view the stars as bucolic herds of sheep grazing in the night sky. On the upper left, is the cuneiform symbol for 2. While lower right, is shown the Rod and Ring, the Babylonian symbols for high divinity and justice.

From the Golden Dawn Texts:
 
The four Deuces symbolize the Powers of the King and Queen; first uniting and initiating the Force, but before the Prince and Princess are thoroughly brought into action. Therefore do they generally imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing.
 
To reiterate: the key to all systems, as well as, the Universal Pattern is the only Real, we know as Chokmah or Hochma (Wisdom) on the Tree of Life. Kether is not or naught, therefore it is not reality. When we cause reality, it is of our beliefs and opinions, so I often call Chokmah the Real...for it is not of us, but is the will before us.  Our beginning is in Chokmah, the idea of us, and the Will to Force, all begin there. Thus we are an "I AM" (Spirit), Dreaming ourselves into willful existence.
 
THE TWO OF WANDS-DOMINION is also called the Lord of Dominion and whose zodiacal attribution is Mars in Aries. The Angels of the Decan are Vehooel and Deneyal.

The Two of Wands represents Chokmah influencing the World of Pure Spirit known as Atziluth. 
Again we are trying toexplain the unexplainable which is the Supernal Triangle.

This second Sephiroth is Pure will, without need of result. Which to many is impossible to realize for most of us exercise will to reach goals. We don't realize that will is the Power behind Spirit, the Spiraling of Energy into motions that build dimensions of I AM ME. But before frequencies are stimulated into being, there was Will to Force and then Will to Form.  The "I AM". All Sephiroth are known as Beings, that may be Force or may be form, but in fact, a Being to a Qabalist is a "immortal state of Conscious Energy/Entity" , this may sound counter-intuitive because we all know that the forms we are used to, have a beginning and an end.  In Chokmah is Being. The First Being---The essence of the All Father God who has no form until She- the third Sephira-Binah "wills him to Form".  Here in the Two of Wands is that joining of the Two states of  Will That is "He" and "She", Will to Force and Will to Form and/or, "I AM".

The 2 of Wands represents, in both the Babylonian and Thoth Tarot,  energy in an unbridled state of Force; for Mars is exalted in Aries as the fiery Mars rules the fiery sign Aries. Here Fire, i.e. the essence of Spirit, is pure Primal, and brilliant, warm and bright. The Dorjes,Tibetan symbols for Thunderbolts, are shown crossed on this card, emphasizing the power and harmony of this card. Will to Force and Will to From are in balance here,  the forceful Dominion of Spirit has become a domain . From now on we know the Male Force of Martial-Will is Will to Force, and the Female Force of Will is Will to Form.

 There is no lust of result in this Pure Will, made of the harmony of "He" and "She" aspects of the One (I AM). Therefore  there is no "battle of the sexes" where one wishes to rule the relationship over the other.  There is the Union of Wisdom and Understanding, that gives birth to Knowledge and all creation. Here, energy is initiating a current of Force, that Spiral of Energy from which all comes. 

When the word Harmony is mentioned, one often thinks of peace and quiet bliss, but this is the Violent Destructive Force that initiated the "Big Bang", totally without resistance in and of itself but destructive none the less, as that is the First Motion of Creation, to destroy balance, to make chaos!  A Singularity (I) exploded  "outward" to form the building blocks of our Universe (AM) and disturbed the peace and balance of absolute stability. Here Mars in Aries represents that Powerful Gathering of Force to deconstruct bliss for the purpose of Form construction. A gathering of Will to Force and Will to Form.
 
When the Two of Wands-Dominion, is thrown during a reading:
 
  • The querent is experiencing the will to move forward in a new direction. From a place of undaunted will, of full power, and balanced dominion.
  • Contemplating new ideas without lust of result.
  • What once was unfocused energy is now becoming clear and polarized.
  • Affirming a new self identity.
  • A partnership of two powers, opposite yet reflecting each other.
  • The Self confidence that only comes from affirming and approving of one's self.
  • A senses of accomplishment without any feeling of satisfaction.
  • In the next two weeks, or two months, you will have the energy, like Mars, to move in new directions: like Aries, from a place of integration, balance, harmony and spiritual power.
  • You have attained a certain amount of integral balance, harmony and dominion within, that enables you to expand and liberate your life from past imbalances.
  • Illumination.
