Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth, 3 of Wands-Virtue & The Babylonian Tarot, 3 of Wands-Achievement

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth and Babylonian Tarot, Three of Wands, represents the Spiritual Integrity, Honesty, that is the Virtue of Spirit.

Virtue is the effective potent force necessary for  putting thoughts into action; for achievement. This is the wholly balance of the Three that defines and clarifies the identity, where you see yourself more clearly.

Virtue/integrity, is the conscious state of heart, mind and physical action working in concert with each other (seen as three lotus bosoms in united purpose) to achieve what would be futile to the divide person. The Three of Wands is a Union of Will-Mind-and body. A "I AM ME" that is a dynamic creative action rather than a "wanna-be" dream.
This dynamic creative action becomes a realization to Gilgamesh, as depicted on the Babylonian Tarot Card. Represented on this colorful card, are the Aries, ram headed wands, the Sumero-Babylonian Solar disc and Gilgamesh, viewing the city of Uruk; Uruk is his home town, and he is King there.
 If you remember reading in  past blogs, written in the clay tablets of the Sumerian Epic of Gilgamesh, is his epic journey into far away lands and worlds, seeking immortality. In the end, he finally realizes that it is not epic deeds that make him immortal. It is the city of Uruk, that lives on and ensures the civilization of humanity.  So he returns, and marvels at his achievement.

After a long and arduous journey, and finally at peace with himself, Gilgamesh is depicted as looking over the golden city of Uruk.  Above the hero, are the three wands in cuneiform. The Three ram headed wands and the solar disc below them, represents the astrological sign of the Sun in Aries.

 On the Thoth Card, the sign of the Sun, above and Aries below, represents the astrological sign of the Sun in Aries, symbolizing radiant dynamic energy moving in new directions but from a foundation of virtue. The communion of mind, heart and physical action, is a holy mass of dynamic creativity that "does unto another, what you would have done to you"...a virtuous  motion that assists life in its ever-forward expansion.

By now, you may know that Binah is an aspect of your own Energetic Unconscious, The prefix Un tends to make one think of something "less than" consciousness, nothing can be farther from the Truth. Here Un just designates the UN-seen.  Being unseen does not mean less in anyway; anymore than unseen H-bombs are less powerful than the one on your doorstep.

Consciousness, itself, is a child of the  Divine Collective Unconscious of the Universe, and that Mother of consciousness, is Binah.  In the Great Sea of Imagination, your image floats in the amniotic fluid of "will to form"; Binah is the Great Will of the Sea of Unconscious. 

The Texts of the Golden Dawn said it best:
" In Binah is a thick darkness which yet veileth the Divine Glory in which all colors are hidden, wherein mystery and depth and silence, and yet, it is the habitation of the Supernal Light. There The Supernal Triad complete. And the Sphere of its Operation is Shabbathi, or rest, and it giveth forms and similitudes unto chaotic matter and it ruleth the sphere of action of the planet Saturn. And Jehovah Elohim is the perfection of Creation and Life of the World to Come.  And the Archangel is Tzaphqiel,  the Prince of the Spiritual Strife against Evil and the name of the Angels is Arahim, the strong and mighty Ones who are also called the Order of Thrones."
 
   
"The order of Thrones" are represented as the Four Queens of the Tarot. who are united with the Four Kings. ..their Husbands.

 
 Generally, the four Threes, represent  the realization of the Action (conception) of the Prince having been conceived  Symbolized  as the central figure on each card. Action is definitely launched for good or evil.
 
Thus in the Three of Wands, the Prince of Wands conception is shown as central flames radiating outward form the Supernal Union of the Triad.
 
THE THREE OF WANDS-VIRTUE, is also called the Lord of Established Strength, a term that can also be applied to the Babylonian 3 of wands. . There is great power where the Sun illuminates Aries, the Cardinal Sign of Fire, often called Mars.

The Three of Wands also represents Binah's influencing the World of Pure Spirit (Atziluth).


Shown on the Thoth card, the Three crossed Wands indicate the balance of Chokmah, Binah and the birth of Tiphareth, the Sun (son), and/or The Prince.  Growth begins and is shown on the card as the unfolding lotus blossoms opening to the Warm and Bright Energy of Aries.  

To an astrologer, the entry of the Sun into the sign of Aries, heralds spring.
Thus the blazing colors of the Card show great strength for individual expression (central Wand). Here also is absolute power that can corrupt absolutely, thus egocentricity, pride and conceit are lurking dangers. Yet we have Virtue here, when the Whole person acts; the individual trinity is the key to Spiritual integrity and honesty.
 
When the Three of Wands -Virtue, is thrown during a reading:
 
  • The querent is experiencing the conjoining of Body, Mind and Spirit
  •  Putting thoughts into action.
  •  Keeping on with present activities for they are conceived and will soon flourish into manifestation.
  • Clarity, where you are seeing yourself honestly.
  • Established strength in enterprises where collaboration will favor the querent.
  • Radiating intention, understanding the Will of Fire and increasing energy to birth ideas.
  • This is a very active card of powerful direction, so it requires us to understand that Virtue is not chastity, no nothing so obviously prejudicial, but rather "Always being True to Thine own self". Here there is a warning not to compromise your inner integrity and passion for others.
  • Be as Spring and flower in your own inner fire! Clarify your identity and " Above all things, Know thyself!"
  • In the next 3weeks or 3months, it is important to operate from a place of virtue/integrity as you move forward in sunny new directions
  • This could also mean that you should wait until your heart, mind and body are aligned and share clarity of purpose before you act in or handle your relationships with the Aries people in your life; Aries -March 21 to April 21.
  • The state of natural clarity is represented in the Thoth card by the crystalline structure in the back ground. While the flames represent the ability to await the natural unfolding of things to come.
  • Inside all of us is the "inner fire of balanced integrity", it is an inheritance of our Divinity; however, one is reminded that the smoke of denial has dimmed the flames of I Am Me, as a spiritual expression of Life-self- awareness, into the slave thinking of "I Want To be more spiritual"(Wanna-be). You are Spirit-Mind-Body, so what you are really saying is, " I wish to love myself more."
  • When this card is thrown, it means it is time to act as a True You and not what others think you must do.
  • If ill defined by surrounding cards:
  • Disturbing memories.
  • Disappointment.
  • Retreating into fantasies (Wana-be-ism).
  • Self absorbed and impractical
