Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Knight of Wands & The Babylonian Tarot King of Wands-Nusku

The Tarot of EliTHE COURT CARDS:Knight of Wands
 
A man's life is characteristic of himself.
-Carl G. Jung
 
 
To many readers, the court cards often are the most confusing to read. This is because some authorities interpret them as people in a persons life, others as events and still others as both people and events. Many see the court cards as personality traits as well. They also represent one of the 16 personality archetypes, as presented by modern Psychology.
Therefore there is a good reason for all of this confusion ; a confusion often dispelled when the reader realizes, that people are nearly always involved in events that are like some aspect of themselves. 

Since everything is only one energy (The first Law of Thermodynamics), there is no obvious separation between what we experience in the environment and what we are on the inner level of self, anymore than there is obvious separation between to magnets joined together at opposite poles. It is a foolish attempt at best, when reading tarot, to try and divide the person from the event that is occurring. Such attempts at division could even be perilous.

It pays to remember that events  often happen to us  because of ourselves rather then  in spite of ourselves.
 
The Knight of Wands (King of wands in the Babylonian Tarot) represents the spiritual evolutionary in all of us. This is the "Will-to-be" part of ourselves that is unwilling to edit, rehearse, or hold back any part of who we are.

The Thoth rider of the unicorn horse is the symbol of vision and inspiration that has purpose and application. Positive male power that is a dynamic frenzy and is in all of us---that's why we are alive! You are a personal vision of your fiery Spirit!

To reiterate: Chokmah, the 2nd Sephira, is the Father God principle and is the first idea of Maleness. Binah, the 3rd Sephira is the Mother God, the first idea of Femaleness.

Here, in the Upper Triangle of the Tree of Life, the Divine Creative begins the action of Sexual attraction; of the electric and magnetic actions of the Universal Creation.
This "God Sex" is often a hard one to explain to the self-absorbed who think sexuality as "pleasing moment" of conquest or a "temptation of the flesh". However, even those who are acquainted to the beauty of sexuality must "wax poetic" just to try and amplify the communication.

For those who have felt the deep and powerful Inner forces of Divine Sexuality are usually unable to mentally rationalize it, let alone find words for it. It is a stunning and absolute attraction, like lightning striking steel, it is a rapture of heat, and brightness. It isn't needy, or manipulative, it is as if two magnets of opposite polarity just "slam" together without resistance of any kind. It is so powerful, that there isn't any other person in the world....one just knows this is the only mate. This must be close to feeling the "Strong Force" in the heart of an atom.  This purely energetic attraction is beyond rational thinking and the brain is stunned by it's lack of control over the situation.

The Kingdom of Heaven, is all around you, and it is built from the attraction of opposites. To understand this powerful attraction we really have to re-think sexuality and understand the attraction of Chokmah and Binah; of the electric and the magnetic. The Entire Universe is created by this often overwhelming technical dynamic activity of Union.

The Thoth Knights are the Kings, in many other decks: to Crowley, a king siting on a throne did not depict the Active power of a King, Thus, he calls them Knights, which are Kings, Armored, on  mighty-chargers, undaunted by battle.

The Knights represent Yod forces in each suit.The Yod is the Radix, and/or Father and commencement of Material Forces. All other forces  are implied here, and as ideas they develop and commence in the Knight. As if volcanic, the Force of the Knight is swift, violent action, that also moves on swiftly. Thus the effects of this force soon pass away.

THE KNIGHT OF WANDS: is the Lord of Flame and Lightning, king of the spirits of Fire, King of the Salamanders.

The last Decan of Scorpio and the first two Decans of Sagittarius are attributed to this card, The Knight of Wands is Specific Fire in Primal Fire on the Tree of Life.

Fire in a alchemical sense, represents the active-vital Spirit Force of Movement that is in all Motion and/or animation and yet it is also the tempering fire that melds together opposites for the construction of something more than either one. Spirit Fire is Sexuality, a technology invented by the Divine Creative and therefore the wands are inescapably the sex of the One energy.

The Crowley card of the Knight of Wands is all about active force, a leaping black Charger mounted by a dark knight, depicting the Dark Fire of Foundational Dark Energy, that all Visible Light comes from and that visibility is depicted as surrounding flames.

The knights crest is a horse head, implying the influence of Sagittarius, and he is in armor implying the qualities of the Spirit Fire that does battle for us all.  The same Ace of Wands, is the Wand in His hand, implying that he is the vehicle for the Fire Force.

The characteristics of this Powerful Knight, are qualities of  activity, such as, fierceness, impetuosity, pride, impulsiveness, swiftness in unpredictable actions.
If negative, he is evil-minded, cruel, bigoted, and brutal.  In either case, his swiftness gives him no recourse to act otherwise so he is ill fitted to modify his actions according to circumstances.

Great personal power, is often seen as arrogance by the weak of conviction, so this person is either Loved or hated, without "gray area" acquaintances. Those who doubt themselves, will be inclined to follow and thus secretly fear or hate such a powerfully active Spiritual Being who is unconcerned with how others react to them. Also this will be a person with a Great Libido, as Spiritual Fire and Sexuality are invariably linked, this is also a contention amongst the weak, whose very pusillanimous character deters the union with others. Also those who serve reaction rather than action, will either avoid or try to besmirch the Active Character of this, Kingly Spirit.

 The Babylonian Tarot, King of Wands-Nusku, who was the son and a high official of Ellil, was considered the god light and sacred fire. In some traditions, he was considered the son of the Moon god, Sin.
Nusku, had many titles, such as; "wise prince, the flame of heaven", "he whose clothing is splendor", "the forceful fire god", "exalter of the mountain peaks", and "uplifter of the torch, the enlightener of darkness", to name a few. Nusku, was often invoked by incantations designed to burn up  black magicians and sorcerers so they could no longer cause harm.
His symbol was the oil lamp and he reportedly manifested in the sacred flame of the Temple where he consumed offerings, and sent the sweet smoke of incense  to the great gods above.
On the Babylonian card, Nusku is shown as emerging from a cloud of incense which arises from three oil lamps.  Above the lamps is a dual headed wand, which is in keeping with the "first duality" of the Divine Creative.

  • WHEN THE KNIGHT OF WANDS IS THROWN DURING A READING: it implies;
  • A spiritual evolution is taking place at a deep core level.
  • It is as if the past personality is fuel for a new phoenix- self arising from the flames
  • Experiencing the conviction of Spirit with much inner to outward movement of energy and the manifestation of leadership skills.
  • Positive male power, complete with the ability to focus on long term goals but with rapid movement that is able to handle complex situations.
  • Strong minded and able to dominate others by force of will.
  • A mastery of wit and charm, great sense of humor and warm and generous with a strong liking for fun. Can just about persuade anyone into anything.
  • May be a highly empowered spiritual being. Which doesn't necessarily mean he has your best interest at heart. Spirit is Pure Mind, and doesn't see things in a personal way. Very Impersonal force without the conscience of the personal.
  • A mature male whose inner and outer being are in mutual agreement and balance.
  • One is releasing an old identity, like a serpent sheds its skin (the serpent suit the knight is wearing under his armor) and establishing a achievement-orientated, creative, and expressive sense of self.
  • This is a powerful person of a fiery nature: energetic, active, hard to control, attractive, but sometimes dangerous.
As always there is more to this card. For further information and/or a personal reading, email <info@eli-lsmerchantile.com. Thank you for your interest, comments and blog supportive donations. May you live long and prosper.
