Tarot Card Comparisons: Thoth Tarot-7 of Disks & The Babylonian Tarot-7 of Disks-Inertia

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- 7 of Disks-Failure;
*NOTE: In the Golden Dawn and Rider-Waite Tarot Decks, the Disks of the Thoth Deck are known as Pentacles. In other decks they are often shown as coins.

  Failure in this case, is about the alchemical process of putrefaction, therefore the number 7, Netzach-Victory (7th Sephira on the Tree of Life) has been enfeebled; However, in this case it is made even more enfeebled by the influence of Saturn in Taurus.

This cards interesting disk emplacement is in the gemantic figure Rubeus, the most ugly and menacing of the 16 figures. (see illustration and  777-And other Qabalistic writings of Aleister Crowley).
There is an atmosphere of blight about the card and since Saturn in Taurus brings very little gain with a great deal of effort, it is blighted in many ways.
  1. The back ground of the card suggests cultivation and spoilage.
  2.  Netzach's four colors are blotched with indigo and reddish orange, which again promotes the concept of spoilage ( the reddish orange, on the card is faded by processing).
  3. Saturn's disks are lead in color and suggest bad money.
Netzach means Victory. To reiterate: Feelings, instinct, and undifferentiated Group Mind, are attributed to the Sphere of Netzach, the Seventh Sephiroth and ruler of the 7's of Tarot.

Here, Netzach is in Assiah, influencing the Material World. The planet and sign of the Seven of Disks-Failure, are Saturn in Taurus. The Angels of the Decan are Herochiel and Mitzrael.
Saturn in Taurus brings disappointment, often because of a great deal of work that  brings little reward.

If you are a student of Alchemy, putrefaction is noted as a necessary process of  chemical transformation, before purification can be produced. Thus the atmosphere of the card implies blight, cultivation is spoiled even the suggestion is bad money; However, this is a potentially growth fulfilling process of Fermentation.
  • According to the Emerald Tablet, during Fermentation, the beginning of putrefaction,  we raise consciousness from the darkness of the animal body through personal meditation and planetary evolution. "Separate the Earth from Fire," it tells us, "the subtle from the gross, gently and with great Ingenuity."
  • According to the Emerald Tablet, during the 2nd step of putrefaction, the Distillation process; "It rises from Earth to Heaven and descends again to Earth, thereby combining within Itself the powers of both the Above and the Below."
  • According to the Emerald Tablet, "Thus will you obtain the Glory of the Whole Universe. All Obscurity will be clear to you. This is the greatest Force of all powers, because it overcomes every Subtle thing and penetrates every Solid thing."


7 Stages of Alchemical Transformation

Seventh Stage - Coagulation is putrefaction completed.
COAGULATION is the seventh and final operation of alchemy.
Chemically, Coagulation is the precipitation or sublimation (putrefaction) of the purified Ferment from Distillation. In the Arcanum Experiment, Coagulation is represented by a compound called Red Pulvis Solaris (Powder of the Sun), which is a reddish-orange powder of pure sulfur mixed with the therapeutic mercury compound, red mercuric oxide, the alchemists believed it could instantly perfect any substance to which it was added.
In Metaphysical Psychology, Coagulation is first sensed as a new confidence that is beyond all things, though many experience it as a Second Body of golden coalesced light,(the first being the Etheric body) a permanent vehicle of consciousness that embodies the highest aspirations and evolution of mind. Coagulation incarnates and releases the Ultima Materia of the soul, the Astral Body, which the alchemists also referred to it as the Greater or Philosopher’s Stone. Using this magical Stone, the alchemists believed they could exist on all levels of reality.

Physiologically, this stage is marked by the release of the Elixir in the blood that rejuvenates the body into a perfect vessel of health. A brain ambrosia is said to be released through the interaction of light from the phallic-shaped pineal gland and matter from the vulva of the pituitary. This heavenly food or viaticum both nourishes and energizes the cells without any waste products being produced. These physiological and psychological processes create the Second Body, a body of solid light that emerges through the Crown or Gold Chakra.
In Society, it is the living wisdom (Horus) in which everyone exists within the same light of evolved consciousness and knowledge of Truth. On the Planetary level, Coagulation is a return to the Garden of Eden, this time on a higher level in tune with the divine mind.

CORRESPONDENCES OF COAGULATION

  • According to the Emerald Tablet, "Thus will you obtain the Glory of the Whole Universe. All Obscurity will be clear to you. This is the greatest Force of all powers, because it overcomes every Subtle thing and penetrates every Solid thing."

From the Book "The Emerald Tablet"
by Dennis William Hauck
[The Emerald Tablet--an ancient document that contains the essence of the alchemical teachings--has had an important influence on many Western spiritual and religious traditions. Ostensibly concerned with turning base metals into gold, alchemy was in fact dedicated to transforming the lead of self into the gold of spirit.]

The Seven of Disks, Failure, is also called.The Lord of Success unfulfilled and rightly so, as it is about physical failure and non-success, because one stopped too soon, instead of "carrying on".

What I have most often found is that it is the individual's Fear of Failure that is the stumbling block to success here and that somewhere in their emotional past the idea that they were/are unworthy of success, is an underlying personality construct.  Other people have reacted so emotionally to loss, that gain itself is a threat as they might lose it and therefore will not dare to desire it.

What many of us don't realize is that we are both Force and Form (The study of Force and Form is the Qaballah and pictured in the Tarot) and that our Spiritual and/or Mental Force runs our Psycho-Physical form. Therefore, to think ill of ourselves is to perform ill as a force and a form. Since the most powerful Force of our Mental Self is Imagination, you are not held to actions of the past, if you are willing to imagine a new future. Imagine yourself -Well, wealthy (money raining down all around you) etc. and you will set a force that turns course towards prosperity for your physical form.

Make a forceful chant such as," North, South, East and West, my prosperity flows to me which ever way is best!", do this morning, noon and night or the instant you worry about income (often it is more poignant if you mention a specific amount---say, 3,000 per month etc) . By taking action to change your mind, you are being Alchemical-Spirit-in process of Active Transformation. Spirit is action; a forceful energy-in-motion rather than the "lizard brain", which is a fear based survival mind who reacts to environmental present-actions with past fear; thinking the past reactions, are an intelligent way to avoid change.
Above all things know thyself! You are a Psycho-dynamic- Force that operates a alchemical trans-formative Power-Tool--known as "your body", that must experience the day, to progress.
To live the "yesterday" through reaction instead of new action, is to be a form of living dead, beginning the process of putrefaction .
The Babylonian Tarot-7 of Disks-Inertia, interprets an image from the Sumerian story version of the Descent of Inanna, showing Gugalanna, The Bull of Heaven (Taurus), is in repose at the gateway to the Underworld.
 
In the "land between two rivers", Mesopotamia, the beginning of the agricultural year was in late fall or early winter during the sowing of seed. Early spring brought great stress and labor, as the young sprouts were tasty food for locusts, rodents and disease. Of course, not all crops were harvested at the same time; therefore the first harvest began in early April and May, while barley, the primary crop, was harvested in late March. This latter harvest period was considered the Babylonian New Year, and the beginning of the ancient month of Nisan. Naturally this prolonged harvest period just added to the predation of crops and the farmer's woes.

In the Descent of Inanna, The Bull of Heaven was considered the husband of Ereshkigal (Goddess of the Underworld). Therefore the reason Inanna/Ishtar used as an excuse to enter the Underworld was to attend  Gugalanna's funeral (Gilgamesh tore him apart) when she just really wanted Ereshkigal's power.

Astrologically, the "funeral rites of Gugalanna", is thought to be the 6 week time period beginning in mid-January that the constellation Taurus was below the Mesopotamian horizon. Therefore the return of Taurus to the sky in March was correlated to the Sumerian agricultural cycle, as well as, the return of Dummuzi (Tammuz), the Shepard god, from the Underworld. It is therefore interesting to note, that Dummuzi and Gugalanna, were presented in different cultures, as husband-consorts of Inanna. Dummuzi was often called the "bull".
Honoring Dummuzi-Tammuz, with ritual lamentations, began at harvest time when the cutting of grain was associated to the death of the Shepard god. In the Summer, when land was roasting and made barren by heat, the sheep and goats were also dried up and unable to give milk, resulting in more intensified Lamentations.

Therefore the inert Bull of Heaven lying before the gates of the Underworld illustrates the time of Summer in Sumer, the bleak-inert, period, when Dummuzi is lost to the Underworld.
The Seven Disks above the bull, which together present the geomantic symbol of Rubeus, also encircle the cuneiform symbol for the number 7.

When the Seven of Disks - Failure or the Babylonian 7 of Disks-Inertia, is thrown during a reading, implied:
  • Is a fear of failure with finances, health and relationships. However, 7 in Netzach is a weak event,and deregulation of the element of earth, so soon  the querent's project will be completed if determined to "keep on" and ignoring the feelings of never finishing the task.
  • The Determination to release this fear of failure should go on for within 7 weeks or 7 months; However, this determination must be hard fought, for there is a tendency to abandon labor, and allowing everything to sink in a mire of sloth.
  • Yet again, putrefaction is before the transformation into purification, so this is the point where the "lowest fallen becomes the highest exalted" .
  •  The implication of this card, is that you shall succeed if you don't listen to the thoughts of failure that are tempting your brain.
  •  Push harder, get more creative, you'll soon succeed!
  • In 7 weeks or 7 months, the querent (the one receiving the reading) will experience or has experienced, unprofitable speculation, and employment difficulties.
  • Little gain for much labor leaving promises for success unfulfilled.
  • Hopes deceived and crushed as apparent fortune is lost. 
  • This is also the Alchemical putrefaction, a seven step process necessary to produce the purest element. 
  • Cultivation of land, with little gain.
  • Sometimes this card suggests slight and isolated gains with no fruits resulting.
  • Depending on the positive dignity of the accompanying cards; then the 7 of Disks-Failure, can also mean: honorable work undertaken for the love of it  and without a desired reward.
