Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons; The Thoth-Key 8-Adjustment & The Connolly Tarot-Key 11- Justice.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Key 8 : Adjustment/Justice; The Universal Principle of balance: Justice/ Realignment. This card is comparable to the Key-11, Justice, of other Tarot.




The mediator, adjuster, and the arbitrator.  What you put out, you get back! Every thought, every action is returned to you, this law is active for you as long as you exist, as there can be no greater justice nor greater balance achieved in this world of action and reaction. This card points out that by thinking ill, we become ill and by thinking well we become well; therefore it is smart to do unto others what you would have done unto you... because it will be!

The Thoth card uses the symbol of Libra; the scales and within the scales are the Greek letters, Alpha, representing beginnings, and Omega, representing endings or completions. This is also known as Karma in Eastern teachings, were We must finish what we begin or we will be doomed to repeat it!

The diamond image around the being symbolizes the piercing of illusion and delusion and represents truth and negotiation.

The Egyptian figure represents Maat,  the Goddess of Law, Truth, and Justice. The circles represent formulate thoughts or ideas. This card also represents the integrating, balancing and synthesizing mind which is often expressed in writing, research, engineering and design. The Ace of Swords is also on this card, pointing downwards indicating  the application of creative ideas in tangible ways. 

THE PATH OF LAMED: Adjustment-key 8 (Justice-Key 11 in other Tarot Decks ):
  • Primary Path Color: Emerald Green
  • Related Sound: F#
  • Astrological sign: Libra (Cardinal Air)
  • Word Meaning: Ox Goad
  • Hebrew Letter-Simple Letter: Work
Esoteric Title: The Daughter of the Lords of Truth; The Ruler of Balance.


Paul Foster Case wrote in his text, The Thirty-Two Paths of Wisdom: The Twenty-second Path is the Faithful Intelligence, and is so called because by it  spiritual virtues are increased, and all dwellers on earth are nearly under its shadow.

Between  Tiphareth (6-Beauty) and Geburah (5-Severity) lies the Emerald Green Path of 
Lamed. Lamed-The Ox Goad- is the spear like prod which keeps the ox moving down the path which points to the letter's special relationship with Aleph (0x) on the Path of The Fool. Although complex, their relationship can be stated: Adjustment (Justice on some cards) maintains the balance of the Tree of Life, so that the outpouring energy of The Fool (often called the Holy Ghost)  will operate within the confines of a natural pattern. Adjustment is the administrator of the laws of Binah (Mother of Form), written by The Heirophant.  Key-8 is the "Ruler of Balance".

Adjustment-is the Intelligence Faithful to that symbolized by The Fool; the alignment of forces of the Twenty Second Path (The total number of all the Qabalistic Psycho dynamic Paths) is an amalgam of  all the Paths and is described as being within the essential life force symbolized by The Fool.

Lamed can be a Severe Path, as it is continual activity "in the above and the below" and will do whatever is necessary to bring the physical, mental and Soul/Psyche into equilibrium. Sometimes a "cutting away" process represented by the Sword, which is not always pleasant.  The Sword of Geburah (Severity), cuts away all that which is unnecessary.  Often, the adjustment is less dramatic and much like driving a car. Adjustment is constantly correcting direction through slight corrects of the steering wheel, while traveling down the road of life (the "steering wheel" for driving an ox is an ox goad). This car analogy continues, when one understands that the Sephira (God Forms) are aspects of the soul itself (the Driver of the body-vehicle) and not external agencies. Thus, this "driving" process is  to be considered psychologically as a condition of self-assessment.

In this Card-key 8-Adjustment, on some cards the soul weighs itself on the scales in the left hand and then makes necessary adjustments wielding the sword in the right hand ( In the Thoth Deck, She balances the Scales on Her head, symbolizing a psychological balancing). By placing the Sephiroth on the human body, it can be seen that Geburah (Severity) is on the right and Chesed (Mercy) is on the left.

This card is said to represent Karmawhich is an often misunderstood Sanskrit word. Instead of meaning that a soul is reaping what is sown from past lives; Karma means to me and Paul Foster Case, an action of continual adjustment. It is related to education; Lamed means to teach, and as many of us lament, the maintenance of balance of a dynamic nature, is definitely a learning process. Slowly and painfully, we learn how to analyze and re-balance ourselves as necessary for different situations.

In the Qaballah, it is understood that the principles of the  Path of Adjustment maintain Tiphareth (Beauty) On the Thoth Deck Card is the figure of Maat, The  Egyptian Daughter of Ra; The Queen of Heaven. The Egyptian texts suggest that that it is through Maat the the Sun subsists, for Ra is said to "rest upon Maat," and to "live by Maat"---in other words, She maintains Tiphareth (The Sun/Son of Goddess/God). This is the Path that regulates Divine Life Force (Sex force to some).

Venus on the Tree of Life.Aleister Crowley called Maat a Harlequin, " the partner and fulfillment of THE FOOL." (THE DIVINE LIFE-FORCE). She stands in the Vsesica Piscis (the diamond shape). Behind her is the throne of spheres and pyramids, in groups of four which means "Law and limitation". This Law is interesting in that The Planet Venus, which symbolizes the Divine She, is the only planet whose symbol encompasses every single Sephira on the Tree of Life.
This encompassing of Venus  implies that Love is the ultimate power of  the Universe and is the Law of Divine Creation.

As Maat, she wears ostrich feathers, with the serpent Uraeus, (Lord of Life and Death) on her forehead. She also holds the Sword, just as the Roman goddess Justina (male phallic symbol in this context) which suggests a sexual union, and the "completion" of the female (Crowley). In 777, Crowley described this "completion" as "The Woman Justified by equilibrium, and Self sacrifice is the Gate."  Her Scale , weighs the Alpha and Omega (The Beginning and the End)  and as Crowley pointed out:

" She is the ultimate illusion which is manifestation; she is the dance, many-colored, man-wiled, of Life itself. Constantly whirling, all are possibilities are enjoyed, under the phantom show of Space and Time: all things are real, the soul is surface, precisely because they are instantly compensated by this Adjustment. All things harmony and beauty; all things are truth; because they cancel out."  

This Path takes some study, for the Soul/Psyche is the "Surface" upon which our personality reflects and is also the "Womb" that birthed our personality.

It also helps to remember that the word, persona, is the Greek word for "mask", which the Harlequin wears.


The Connolly Tarot, key 11, Justice, is comparable to the Thoth Key 8-Adjustment. Here we have an image that resembles the Roman Goddess- Justina from which the word Justice is derived.
Dressed in the red robe of of powerful individuality, and cloaked in the green of her earthly roots, this one is perfectly balanced between the two pillars of Severity and Mercy.
The red and white roses remind us that true justice comes from purity and love.

The symbolic double edged sword of justice, implies that both sides of an issue are equally evaluated.  Here the law of Karma comes into effect, for we reap what we sow.  The Feather of Maat is also present under the scales that weigh the soul.

When this card is drawn it often means:
  • One is experiencing karmic adjustments in life from past thoughts and actions which have led to the present circumstances of our life. We are not bodies! We are a form of multiple conscious energy that uses bodies to work out thought equations to see if they expand and liberate life or if they stall and subvert life.
  • One must know self in order to expand one's self-awareness and that of the Universal Self, from which we all are formed!
  • This is the Law of Action and Reaction, that all mind is subject to.
  • Justice and decision: Someone has arrived at a decision that is both just and honest.
