Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: Thoth Tarot-10 of Disks & The Babylonian Tarot-10 of Disks-Completions.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth 10 of Disks-Wealth:
The number ten is as absolutely condensed as a suit can go and is the final issue of the Energy. Therefore the Force is completely expended and results in death as it is 1+0=1, it begins again through the process of alchemical putrefaction.

Since Mercury rules this card in Virgo; this may imply that unless the acquired inert wealth is put into motion by devoting its power to objectives, a kind of communication, rather than towards accumulation, it will be lost.

There is a certain futility to material gain suggested here by making the Tenth coin, Malkuth, larger than the rest of the 9. 
The Thoth coins/disks, are inscribed with Mercurial  symbols. except for the coin in place of Hod (#8-Splendor) which is marked with the cypher of the Sun. This suggests that the only possibility of issue from the impasse, which is produced by the exhaustion of all elemental forces is through the Will of Spirit. So in the Thoth Tarot Card a doctrine is  stated that Mercury represents the Logos (the Word) and the Sun represents the Will of the Father (the eternal Son) and Virgo the Virgin Mother. This doctrine is a metaphysical representation of the progression of regeneration.

Among the coins-disks are various geomantic figures, most notable is that of  Mercury in conjunction with Virgo. 

The explanation of this conjunction, is shown by the attraction of  the descending female Triangle, (cypher of the Yoni)  to the ascending male Triangle, the cypher of the Lingam. The action completed, forms the geomantic symbol of Capricornus, (forming the Holy Hexagram), the Sign in which the Sun finds its rebirth. Therefore, we have the Union of the Macrocosm and Microcosm where the Great Work of "As above, so below" is accomplished. As you can see, a study of Geomatria is recommended for the Qabalist.

Also the Card Reader may note that the Thoth Deck Disks are often called Pentacles in other decks, such as, the Golden Dawn deck or the Rider-Waite decks.

To reiterate, the Sephiroth, MALKUTH is Earth, that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah.  It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are three Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious.

Assiah is the only Sensual Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life unconsciously, as they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel the unconscious as conscious experiences.  But to travel,the other Sephiroth without a body, is to feel nothing at all!

There is only One Sense to the unconsciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "Five Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I" and we call that consciousness.

What we often fail to understand when viewing all the individual ways a mind is being presented, that there is only One Mind,The Universal Divine Collective Unconscious, and each of us is a unique perspective of Being-Me, presented by that Mind. This Wealth of  Self-Perspectives, can cause us to "not see the forest through the trees", thereby losing the joy of observing such wealth to fear of being lost amongst the many.

To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than five, some say,as many as ten (Tantra states there are 33), but describing everyone of these sensual states is not for this single blog to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality, start your journey up the Tree while you still support a physical body.

Traditional explanation of Tantra. (from Wikipedia)
The Tantric tradition offers various definitions of tantra. One comes from the Kāmikā-tantra:
Because it elaborates (tan) copious and profound matters, especially relating to the principles of reality (tattva) and sacred mantras, and because it provides liberation (tra), it is called a tantra.
A second, very similar to the first, comes from Swami Satyananda.
Tantra embodies two Sanskrit words: tanoti (expands) and trayoti (liberates)... It is the system by which you liberate or separate the two aspects of consciousness and matter - purusha and prakriti or Shiva and Shakti.
A third comes from the 10th-century Tantric scholar Rāmakaṇṭha, who belonged to the dualist school Śaiva Siddhānta:
A tantra is a divinely revealed body of teachings, explaining what is necessary and what is a hindrance in the practice of the worship of God; and also describing the specialized initiation and purification ceremonies that are the necessary prerequisites of Tantric practice.
Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar describes a tantric individual and a tantric cult:
A person who, irrespective of caste, creed or religion, aspires for spiritual expansion or does something concrete, is a Tantric. Tantra in itself is neither a religion nor an "ism". Tantra is a fundamental spiritual science. So wherever there is any spiritual practice it should be taken for granted that it stands on the Tantric cult."

According to Tibetan Buddhist Tantric master Lama Thubten Yeshe:
...each one of us is a union of all universal energy. Everything that we need in order to be complete is within us right at this very moment. It is simply a matter of being able to
recognize it. This is the tantric approach.

Which is also the Qabalistic/Gnostic approach.

The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. However, Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world of spinning atoms, i.e. the centrifugal force of a Spinning of a Disk. All things seem solid in the Kingdom of Malkuth because of the Stability of a Discus/Atom in its spin. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many, as only those who take risks can) and agree with his philosophy.

It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our inner-conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion. Our Mental/emotional perspectives cast our body forward or backward as a disk is cast in an Olympic game. It takes dedicated practice to cast our body/disk towards it's intended life-target. In magical practice this "hitting the mark" is called Impeccability.

Such accuracy requires a soul to manifest many bodies, before it hits the mark! That mark being the expansion and liberation of Life (Tantra) .

THE TEN OF DISKS, is Qabalistically called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah.

Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world.
 The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance.

Some Souls have gained so much  objective wealth in perspectives, that they can manifest more than one "individuality" at a time.

As is known to a impeccable Qabalist, each new manifested individual Personality is a Fractal made of past personalities, that reside as "memory" in the Soul (point of creative consciousness in the Divine Unconscious). Therefore, after many life-times, where the Psyche/Soul has experienced the entire Zodiac of personality construction, it can choose to make more than one "Identity Fractal" at one point in time.  This may be where the idea of "soul mates" has come from.

This vast materiality is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life, of Ten Sephira, as whirling Disks decorated with the various symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world; for it is the Goal Achieved by the Conscious of The Divine Dual Creative, where the I Am becomes I AM ME-the manifested and therefore sensual trinity of the Above Supernal Triangle.

Therefore, our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. "The Great Work".

As energy that is Spiral (Spirit), we are "everywhere and no where" at the very moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into the eternity of the Divine Collective Unconscious Ocean. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, as "Myself" (point of the whirlpool), giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to discriminate my motion! In other words,"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective and or Self-Definition. I am a Soul, a whirlpool of conscious, in the Ocean of Unconscious! This Rocks! I find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually forming reality to my Self Awareness.  To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind of God...until now!

It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place" in Time Space! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or Lustful, thereby meriting the "suffering' brought on by physical senses as a punishment(The Lust of Goddess/God built us after all!). Rather, We are the accumulated Wealth of Self Image-Creation; the Center of rotation, made alive and sensual in order to discern thought within the One Mind.  The Divine Creative's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution- not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct ideas right at the time and place of "seeing/sensing an error"! We Rock Dudes and Dudesses! I Am the Image maker "ME", who can recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"! I AM ME is our individual name of inheritance and our design alone!

For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria (numerology) which simply means The First Sephira -that is Kether, is The Above Ocean of Unconscious, that we bring to The Below, the tip of the Whirlpool that is individual consciousness!

In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal! Thus, we are "Lust without the Need of result"! Lust being the Divine Frenzy of motion, that is the rhythmic vibration/whirling in all things! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life of Ten dimension and each dimension has 10 Trees! Like I also said, we are present Fractals composed of fragments of past personalities/Sephiroth!

The Babylonian Tarot-10 of Disks-Completion, once again refers its image to that Mesopotamian Epic of Etana.  Portrayed is a stylized Tree, with eagle at summit and a serpent curled around the base.

I find these images throughout  the Hermetic tradition of the mysteries, where often the Eagle symbolizes the human soul, soaring on wings of ascent and the serpent is the symbol of the "serpentine life force" that is an entity of Wisdom that gains vauable experience by winding it's way up the Qabalistic Tree of Life.

This symbol of Union of Psyche and Life, seems depicted in The Epic of Etana, where the eagle and the serpent both agreed to mutually cooperate becoming a balance in the Tree of Life.

This motif of both serpent and bird is also found in the Sumerian story of Gilgamesh and the Huluppu Tree. The Sumerians, used the Eagle symbol as that of Ninurta, the agricultural warrior god, and the serpent as a magical protective creature.
It seems that this Babylonian 10 of Disks card evokes the symbolism of the Tree of Life, as well as, the winged caduceus, which represents opposing forces balancing each other, in order to create a Higher Self; a center of greater Wholeness.

[for those who wish to translate the Hebrew letters at bottom of the Qabalistic  Winged-Serpents in Tree of Life , refer to the Hebrew Alphabet}

The fruit of the Babylonian tree of life, are seen as the Rosette disks.  The cuneiform symbol of the number ten resides beside the eagle.

When the Ten of Disks is thrown during a reading:
  • The querent is assured of physical prosperity and abundance.  But being a Ten, the end of a cycle, means it may be short lived.
  •  The querent is at a physical cross roads where supply is stable but boredom has set in and is non stimulating.
  • However, the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon arrive.
  • Attainment, accumulation, accomplishment, realization.
  • Riches and wealth, completion of material wealth.
  • Family wealth and inheritance.
  • A time of good harvest.
  • The wealthy communication between Soul and body.
  • That in the period of, or for, 10 weeks or 10 months, that the querent will experience riches and wealth.
  • There is a completion of material gain, but nothing beyond that 10 month or 10 week period.
  • Depending on dignity, old age, slothfulness, great wealth that is sometimes lost in part, and later heaviness, dullness of mind, yet clever and prosperous in money transactions.
  • There are ringing descriptions of a Miser here.This card more than suggests that the approach to finances must be changed, in order to continue with progressive wealth, be it physical or mental, as the two are inseparable. 
If Ill defined:
  • Theft and robbery.
  • Gambling.
  • Family misfortune.
  • Loss of inheritance.
  • Legal troubles after a death; or legal troubles and break up of an estate.
