The Thoth 6 of Wands: Victory;
This is a joyful card, expansive
and warm, an symbol of deep personal creative power, Self confidence,
balanced leadership and joy.
Were the fours were
closed and guarded,
that was broken up by the five and the resulting
marriage of 4 and 5 has resulted in self-supporting, stabilization, reception and
reflection. When the established conformity of the 4 is broken up by the
frustration and anxiety of the 5, the creative union of 4's and 5's
results in a dynamic motion of creative power that results in a personal
victory of empowerment.
- The lotus wand represents a spiritual victory that provides us with a win-win situation rather than a win-lose one.
- The Ibis Headed Wand, is a symbol of a victory that provides us with new creative energy flow and revitalization.
- Win-win victory supplies us with clarity of vision and creative expression which is represented by the Winged Eye of Horus wand, whose serpents represent the regenerative power of such a victory.
4 of Wands represents a powerful energy/spiritual victory that is
represented on all four states of consciousness (represented by the
four diamonds): Super-conscious (Whole Psyche and/or Spirit), Subconscious, conscious
and the self-conscious of personality.
Therefore, the Victory is that You are in the
Know of the above and the Flow
to the below,
and have the Three wands of mastery on both the visible and invisible
(both sides of the mirror) and are walking on the rare path of
Spiritual, Mental and Physical (all of which are of Spirit) union towards one vision. Astrologically,
this is Jupiter in Leo stating that victory such as this, is expansive
and fluid (Jupiter) and highly creative (Leo). We feel good !
In past blogs,
I mention The Key symbols relating to Tiphareth,
- The Cube, which is based on 6, a form taken twice-over in
the double cubed Altar of Malkuth.
- The Six-sided figure of the
Truncated Pyramid (its top is cut off) that represents Adam Khadmon, the
Ascended Man, and the six lower Sephiroth. Adam Khadmon is the ascended
man or Archetypal Human, i.e. the complete manifestation of the DNA
inherited from the "gods" and/or the Annunaki;
- Above him, completing the
Pyramid are the Supernal, Kether, Chokmah and Binah.
there is the Calvary Cross
, properly drawn as black, unequal armed,
surrounded by a circle and mounted on three steps. This implies Wisdom
The Rose cross and the Rose Cross Lamen,
are the other powerful Tiphareth symbols.
THE SIXES, represent definite accomplishment and carrying out of a matter. Therefore, success with the result of effort, is the underlying current of all sixes.
- In the World of energy, Atziluth, 6 means Victory.
- Where as in Briah, the World of Pleasure, 6 brings happiness which is a direct result
of working for it.
- In the world of quarreling and Strife, Yetzirah, the 6 brings success.
- While, in Assiah, the world of business, and
commerce among men, the 6 means material success.
THE SIX OF WANDS-VICTORY: Lord of Victory.
Here Jupiter is in Leo, and the Angels of the Decan are: Nelokhiel and Yeyayel.
the Six of Wands, we have the benevolence of Jupiter in the Fiery Sign
of Leo (Sun) which brings success and warm relationships. However, it is an aspect that suggest some drama and of victory after great effort.
Crowley card, shows the Wands of the Three Adepts (of Golden Dawn
ritual) crossed in a perfect balance of power. As each Adept must go
through initiations involving varying degrees of Strife, this card of
Wands, suggests victory after strife. The number six is also the gematria number of the Sun/Son, who is champion over the temptations of the fear based survival Mind.
It is to be noted, that
the upright Flames, lantern like at each crossing, are in a number of
9; the number of Yesod and the Moon as well as the marriage of the 4 and
5. This shows energy stabilization of the Energy, and its reception and
reflection by the Feminine Magnetic Principle. There is no circle
around it, because it is self-supporting like the Sun.
The Babylonian Tarot, 6 of Wands is also called Victory.
shown are the six wands, two with lion heads, all crossed in peace and victory.
The human figure is that of a priest dressed in the garb of the Babylonian god La-tarak, Lion headed and lion pelted. Imitating a god who guarded doorways and protection of the devotee against sorcery and evil magic.
The surviving Babylonian art provides many examples of what appear to be animal parts, from lion pelts, to bird wings, used as costumes in ritual ceremonies. Even fish skins were sometimes used.
The Asipu, or exorcist, was one of the most important clergy members who often wore the ceremonial lion head and pelt of the god La-tarak, as he preformed protective or the casting out of the evil that seemed to cause all disease or misfortune. This priest had to undergo many initiations, to achieve his lofty perch; for he had to be an expert diagnostician, counselor, reader of omens, a psychoanalyst, as well as, a skilled ritualist. Once the priest had figured out the proper ritual formula for the affliction, he resided over the entire ceremony, including the gathering of the necessary paraphernalia, herbs, and materials. By using several purification spells and invoking the various god names, and spells that granted him the divine authority to exorcise, becoming victorious over evil and therefore able to heal the patient. Besides instructing the patient on the various recitals of invocations, he also provided the patient with follow up advice, potions, ointments, poultices and protective amulets. Therefore, the exorcist was also well versed in Babylonian pharmacology.
The Babylonian card, shows the Asipu, hands upraised in supplication and prayer. Invoking the power of Victory over evil, as shown by the six wands. Above the priest is the cuneiform symbol for the number six. The necessary feminine principle, is shown as the Green Diamond shape of the nurturing goddess.
When the 6 of Wands card is thrown during a reading the Querent:
- Is assured of victory, but victory only comes after a struggle. so don't celebrate prematurely.
is implied a short lived victory with all blockages overcome but by
trusting the Stability of the Higher Self, the Victory is long lasting.
and belief in yourself are the necessary tools here and it looks like
they have been achieved with some major breakthrough in insight and
creativity happening in the next 6 weeks or 6 months.
- The querent is showing secure knowledge of self identity and displays self confidence in leadership abilities.
- There is in the querent a purposeful sense of direction and purpose.
the next 6 weeks or 6 months, the opportunity for victory will be
either an opportunity to achieve a victory with the Leo people in your
life or to experience a personal win-win victory of your own.
the 4 of Wands is Completion, a stasis of movement, and 5 of wands is
Strife, an unbalancing, their union becomes a continuation of motion
that produces Victory, with is a new motion, a new vision, and a new
journey that self renewal demands of us "Living Makers".
- It pays to remember that the body is your power tool, your magic wand and your are the artisan that "Makes" with that spiritual- physical- miracle device!
