Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 4 of Disks-Power & The Connolly Tarot-4 of Pentacles.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot Deck- Four of Disks, represents Chesed (Mercy) establishing the Universe in three dimensions (4th dimension is Time), that is below the Abyss. Here, the Sun is in Capricorn, the sign in which the Sun is reborn. Basically this means that the generating idea is established in its full material sense.

The Disks are shown as large, square and solid, representing a fortress comprised of the Four Elements. We know from history, that Fortresses are to keep Law and order by constant authority and a vigilant defense.

Though seemingly stationary, the Disks revolve due to the fact that the Sun is the "dead center" of the engineer; and Capricorn is the point where the "Sun turns Northward". Another twist to this revolution, is that all atoms spin, as do disks, in order to stabilize.

Now the word, engineer, may have left you confused, but Chesed, the 4th Sephiroth is also known as the "engineer or architect", who is directly connected to the 5th Sephira-Geburah, linking both the male and female principle of energy. Also what may confuse one more is the Fortress with a moat is considered a Womb. The Greatest Engineer is "The Womb with a View" (Imagination), or The Divine Feminine Principle. In Yi King, the Sun in Capricorn is represented as the Second hexagram, Khwan, which is the Female Principle The student may wish to compare Khwan, to the English word Queen, Anglo-Saxon Cwen, Old Mercian Kwoen, all of which are The Female Principle. As in most of the Tarot, there are layers of understanding, that require diligent pursuit.

Many Qabalists and my faithful blog followers know by now, that Chesed is the  architect  of the Supernal (upper triangle on the Tree of Life) whose intelligence externalizes the combined potent forces of the upper Trinity.

Chesed is the administrator of manifestation and the laws there of.
 
The Thoth 4 of Disks (Pentacles in the Connolly tarot and Ryder-Waite decks)  is the most complete expression of the grounded Chesed forces. This card shows the influence of Chesed in the material world, or the World of Assiah, as our material world is called in the Qabalah.
 
The Four of Disks -Power, is also called the Lord of Earthly Power, by A. Crowley. The Angels of the Decan are Keveqiah and Mendial. The planet is the Sun and here, as stated, it is in Capricorn.

The illustration of the 4 of Disks suggests a fortress implying law and order maintained by undaunted vigilance. 
The Disks themselves, are square implying that revolving or motion, is opposite to this card. However, another form of Chesed is in the Key 13 card of the Major Arcana, and it is the Death of stability, so that revolution can continue, 1+3=4, so the number of Chesed lays hidden in gematria/numerology.  The Engineer of manifestation, has the power to reorganize it through a process we call Death.

The Four square disks each  contain one of  the symbols for the four elements and the walls are strong and seemingly immobile. Yet we have the Sun reborn in Capricorn so new powerful activity is present, and this activity is best shown as the Dancing Skeleton of key 13.

What hints at underlying power in the 4 of disks Tarot Card  is the orange-yellow color of the card representing the Sun/Son reborn.

Like the eye of a hurricane, The Four of Disks is the "Dead Center" of the Engineer of all manifestation  Here at the center, everything looks quite and stable, but violent activity is in the making, so soon that stability will "fly to the winds". Capricorn is the center "where the Sun turns Northward." So the turning is happening in what looks to be stable.
 
The Connolly Tarot-4 of Pentacles,
depicts a Herculean type of individual holding up to pentacles while standing firm on two more. The implications being that he is strongly attached to materialistic pursuits while firmly in control.

The yellows and reds of the card, show sun and martial strength.

There seems to be no recognition of the Divine Architect nor feminine principle, other than the pentacles themselves.





When the Four of Disks is thrown during a reading:.
  • the querent is owning their own personal energy, physical potency and vitality. The very act of which proceeds change.
  • There may be a feeling of holding on tightly to what one has, emotionally or physically.
  • The enfoldment of Power, Here the Ability to Do Work (Power) is unfettered and the engineer is active.
  • the querent is taking solid steps towards creating material security in the physical world.
  • Here, "nothing ventured nothing gain" is the axiom of the Four. Holding to tightly to what you have, and not taking risks of change.
  • Blockage of creative thought due to avarice, or excessive devotion to material things.
  • 4wks or 4months of monetary gain and influence, A present arriving in that time period.
  • Assured material gain, success, rank,dominion,earthly power completed and going no further than earth.
  • This is an Earth as boundary card.
Now if ill dignified, the meaning could be:
  • Prejudice, covetous, suspicious, careful and orderly, but discontented.
  • Very little enterprise or originality. More like imprisoning oneself in order to be "safe". Again, dignity is shown by the accompanying cards.
