Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot Key 19-The Sun & The Connolly Tarot key 19- The Sun

The Tarot of EliThoth, Key19-The Sun: The Path of Resh.
* Color:Orange
*Musical Note: D- Natural
*Planet: Sun
*Meaning: Head
* Double letter (Hebrew) Fertility-Barrenness
* Qabalistic esoteric title: The Lord of the Fire of the World.
From the Thirty Two Paths of Wisdom: "The Thirtieth Path is the Collecting Intelligence and is so-called because Astrologers deduce from it the judgment of the Stars, and of the celestial signs, and the perfections of their science, according to the rules of their resolutions."
(The Path of Resh is the path from the sphere #8-Hod at a down angle to the sphere #9-Yesod)

The Path of Resh connects Splendor (Hod) with Foundation (Yesod) and is the first of the Paths of the Personality Triad to be encountered in upward motion on the Tree.
As the active Path of the  intellectual formative side, it is the activating force of the Personality which is  an "image of the High Self" since it is composed of both Male-electric-dynamic ("masculine- intellectual- dynamic, Yod) and female-formative-magnetic  (intuitive- conscious dynamic-formative, Heh) and a harmony of energy frequencies from the union of the two opposites which is known as the equilibrating, Vau.

The Sun (Son) in the Qabalistic Thoth Tarot deck is the "Collecting Intelligence" (The Collective Soul), meaning that it exercises control over many different components which is seen as the:
  1. 12 signs of the Zodiac, in this case symbolized by the 12 rays of light emanating from the Sun.
  2. The Masculine and Feminine polarities are represented as the flying angelic forms.
  3. The Zodiacal signs are considered to be the 12 guide posts of Personality and receptacles of Planetary influences, one of which governs the birth and life course of each incarnation, the memory of which are individual stored in the Solar Soul. 
  4. The Sun is not only central to today's incarnation but also acts as a link between the Personalities which have been experienced in other incarnations.
  5. The collecting of the Sun also encompasses all the component parts of the Personality, discovered on these lower Paths, that are here infused with the dual action of the Sun (light and warmth).
  6. To initiates, light and warmth are considered to be intellectual qualities. The Path of The Sun is intellectual and is the highest level of the human intellect ( The Star is the highest level of emotions).
  7. The Sun is also The Son who carries on the work of the Father. The Sun is the introduction to the inner sun which is the light of the Personality, just as the physical sun is the light of the material world.
  8. What must be noted here, is that definite physical-chemical changes happen to those who successfully work on the Paths.  In his study course, The Thirty Two Paths of Wisdom, Paul Foster Case states that:"...marked inner differences from the average person are due to psychological contrasts to the mental states of ordinary human beings, but they are also the outer signs of organic changes inside the skin of the new creature. He is chemically and structurally unlike genus homo.  There are different constituents in his (her) blood stream. Through the nervous system and in the brain, and glands related to them, function differently in the body of an adept from the way they do in the bodies of the greater number of his (her)contemporaries."

In order to update the language I placed the word her in parentheses but it is also important to note that these "marked inner differences" also cause the "magic abilities" of the psychic and/or the "healing semen of the anointed" in Tantric practice, as the glands function on a more "Solar" level than just biological. 

When we travel The Path of Resh upwards, we return to this point of new innocence. It is quite literally "a growing younger" process of birth backwards until we reach a stage where there is some recollection of the Source from which we emerge.

It's also important to note that the god-man Personality we came as Spirit to build, is an expansion and liberation of the Animal consciousness to a state of Angelic conscious providing a union that is "more than the sum of its parts". We came to elevate matter and its survival mind to that of Universal Thought, while also allowing Universal thought to "Feel" what it is thinking and therefore discern; thus the Dreamer of the Universe, can be lucid in the dream, as a God-Man, and thus correct, manipulate and/or restructure the dream by "live" observation. This Sun card is the symbol of the genus homo-sapient-sapiens. Therefore, knowing the Solar Self brings an understanding of " I may not be god, but god can be me"!

Resh is the first active path on the formulation-intellectual  side and is the activating force of the Personality. The Supreme Spirit Self, the Higher Self and the Personality are all composed of an intertwining of the Feminine side and a Masculine side (the twin serpents on the Caduceus) and forces resulting from the interaction of opposites. As previously stated, the Sun-Resh is also known as the "Collective Intelligence" meaning that it exercises control over the Zodiac as shown by the 12 rays on the Thoth Deck Tarot Card-The Sun-Key 19. Astrologers know these zodiacal signs as  the twelve guideposts of Personality and as receptacles (feminine) of Planetary Influence. The Sun is not only a link to the present incarnation but also a link to the past personality incarnations and therefore the Akashic Records are within the Path of Resh. Being collective, the Sun is also infuses all the components parts of the Personality on the lower paths with the actions of the Sun, light and warmth, which are considered intellectual qualities.

You may notice the "Dancing Twins" as shown on this card before they were called the "Sons of Seth" or the "Daughters of Seth"  we may have known them as --the Twin aspects of the Goddess or God, the Original "Soul Mates"/Solar Mates.

The Fiery Spirit or Spiral Energy of Masculine and the Magnetic =Formative Sophia (Goddess of Wisdom) feminine side.

On  the Thoth Card, the Solar twins cross arms, representing the Union of these Divine States of Intellect and Energy (in Tantric Image they would be in "Sexual Union") that must be established to "Collect" all the necessary Forces in order to establish a Intellectual and living Being.

This Path is intellectual, and THE SUN represents the highest form of human intellect which is both  a balance of Masculine and Feminine, the perfect anima and animus in union as one bright source of conscious energy.

So in a physical representation, when both the Left and Right side of the brain are in equilibrium with the Solar Forces (Kundalini-Ida Pingalla) within the body, we are at our most advanced state of Personality. This is a profound union of the Personality with the Inner Sun where there is a deep physical inner feeling of Warmth and Light not unlike the external feeling of warmth and light a sun bather may experience, yet within rather than on the surface of the skin. Also, like the physical sun, you cannot look directly into the "inner sun" with out suffering positive damage to your "I" (eye) sight. Reminding us of the opposites of the Sun, that it is both the harbinger of fertility and barrenness which is the Double Letter (double letters are Soul letters) meaning of the Hebrew word Resh. This Warm and Bright intelligence will purge your personality of all the detritus of unworthy identity you have gathered from society. Burned bare, your personality will be that of your Solar Hermaphrodite Soul.

As a symbol of Resh, the human head is represented, which is our Collective Intelligence.

The Path of Resh is an initiation of the Personality to the Great Source of Inner Light which takes place in the material body that affects the dual components of the Lower Self (Chemical and Intellectual).

The Adept knows that the component parts of the Personality (Lower Paths on the Tree of Life) function through the body as an  experience-collecting vehicle for the Spirit. Therefore, the human body is an important Crucible for the Alchemical union of Higher and Lower Self communion and communication. Therefore, the Physical body is a Sacred Place; our temple, our forge crucible, where ideas are forged into artistic-intimate-sensual-presence and where Male and Female are not divided into a purely errant "Battle of the Sexes" as proposed by the "Divide and Conquer" indoctrination of divisionism, but as a new Binary Star!

Remember "God creates what God wants!" To believe you can judge what is created by the Divine Creative (If it is alive-it is supposed to be!), is the arrogance of a idiot. 

The Path of the Sun is a Hermaphroditic path, where we return to the nonjudgmental innocence of a child and as we travel upwards on this Path of Resh, our Personality grows younger, innocent and sees with Wonder rather than the critical eyes of the good and bad Pavlovian domesticated and divided-personality of the cultural Adult. We begin seeing What The Divine Creative Sees!

Tiphareth is the Central Sun (Son) of the physical microcosm and connects us to the Dark Sun (limitless light- Dark Energy-Father) of the Macrocosm and the Path of Resh begins us on the Journey to Central Sun-of God-Man, within. There is much to study about this card, Cain an Able ( bareness and fertility), the Dragon-faced-Men, Sons of Seth, Daughters of Seth, Prometheus and the Christ who Didymos Judas Thomas in the Gnostic Gospels quoted as saying"....I am the honeymoon suite." and much more!

The Connolly Tarot, Key 19, The Sun,
concentrates its imagery on the bright joy of this card.
Depicted, are cherubs offering the gifts of life and opportunity. Each Cherub (Kerub) presenting a perfected tool to mankind.
The blue wisdom/spirituality of the Great Mother Sophia forms the background to a bright sun. Here the Sun brings a message of...Yes. The key word is ATTAINMENT.
 As can be seen here, this card skirts over the Arcane meaning of the Divine Twins- Key 10, making it an easy read for a mundane divination.

When the Sun card is thrown during a reading:
  • It generally means Gain, Glory and riches all of the Fertility side.
  • Regardless of present circumstances, there will be joy, prosperity and happiness in your future.
  • When this card shows up in a divination when answering a question about a "lover", it defines soul mating.
  • However, if surrounded by very ill cards, it can mean the bareness/desert side which would be Arrogance, Vanity, and Display.
Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations. May you live long and prosper!
