Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 5 of Disks- Worry & The Connolly Tarot- 5 of Pentacles

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-Five Of Disks-Worry: Since Disks are cards that represent the physical, and/or objective world, this card represents physical worry, concerns, and rumination.




It is a state of consciousness that dwells in the past and imagines
a feared future but doesn't live in the now. By not living in the now, we are not present today, i.e. mentally dead, which doesn't allow new perspectives or thoughts to change our mental emotional direction.  However, this worry is a general effect of a long strain with out action; a general state of inaction where one feels unable to act.  Health, finances, work, relationships and/or creativity are the concerns here.

Astrologically this card represents Mercury in Taurus, also symbolizing communication worries. Worrying about rather your communication efforts are coming across correctly or if you even have the ability to communicate at all.
By now we are familiar with Geburah, a state of energy that is severe in its function. Geburah, the 5th Sephira, red with the energy of Mars, on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. Geburah-Severity, is a corrective state of intelligence, whose severity is an action towards self assessment, rather than anything karmic.
The Thoth Deck 5 of Disks, is also called called the Lord of Material Trouble. The angels of the Decan are Mibahiah and Pooyal.

In the Thoth Five of Disks, we have Geburah-Severity, influencing the Material World (Assiah/Malkuth)
As before stated, "To Worry" something, is translated as the Anglo-Saxon shepherds use the word, which is a type of strangulation a sheep dog does to a sheep. This strangulating is a biting and holding on to the Sheep's throat, which stops it in its tracks. Hence our fear has us by the throat and we are unable to mentally and physically move.  Thus we understand that the five of disks is so named because it stops all material events, such as profession or monetary gain, dead in its tracks.

Again, Crowley shapes this card as an inverted pentagram, which implies  difficulties. He also placed the geometric figures of the Hindu five Tattvas in the individual disks, each symbolizing a Alchemical element of  Fire, Water, Air, Earth and Spirit. In the Hindu system these are the underlying currents of matter.

Mercurial energy is opposed in Taurian earth, simply because earth has a natural tendency to be stationary  while Mercury is swift motion. Granted it takes a strong Mercury to influence and unbalance Taurus but Geburah is just that strength.  In fact, instead of Severity, She is sometimes called Strength and causes instability in the five states of matter/energy. This instability is vibration, much like and earthquake, yet the Five states of energy (Spirit, Fire, Air, Water, Earth) have enough attraction necessary to hold together on the lower planes forestalling complete disruption. So this is more like the dog holding the sheep at a standstill; a kind of intelligence applied to labor. The Five of Disks thus implies intense strain with long moments of inaction.
 
This card reminds us that by focusing on what we have lost or don't have, we cannot create more. We need to focus on what we do have, and on the thing we can do; maybe just a baby step is all we have, but that is motion and is enough to get us going again.  Just taking a deep breath, hold it for a count of 4 and exhaling is enough for the "power of observation" (spirit) to begin taking positive control over the brain.  Even the Taoist axiom, of " a journey of a thousand miles begins with one step," is the solution to this worrying problem that confronts our intellect.
The Connolly Tarot-5 of Pentacles, depicts a young woman/Anima, blinded to her future by thoughts of worry. Her "higher self", is depicted as a young male/Animus
who fearlessly removes the blind fold of past worries.

The Five Pentacles are depicted as a stain-glass window frame, implying that framing our thoughts is the message of this card. Here the frame work of our thought should be listening to the higher self and leave behind the framework of worry.


When Divination brings up the Five of Disks/Pentacles, the querent is going through:
  •  A period of rumination, anxiety or concern...maybe all.
  • Feeling left out of social events because of lack of money.
  • The querent is going through challenges of insecurity, deprivation, and even exclusion. 
  • Here the mind is focused on survival issues and thus stopping creativity dead in its tracks as a feeling of helplessness and inertia take over.
  • There is a foretelling of material trouble for the next 5 weeks or 5 months.
  • That in the next 5 weeks or 5 months, opportunities are presented to you for the release of worry about health, finances, relationships, productivity  and to improve on your communication skills.
  • The past, let's say when you were five years old, is what produces worry.
  • We tend to want to avoid discomfort, and try to compare present day events, to past ones.
  • To be locked into past pain----does not help us live in the present and this card reminds us to forget the what-ifs of yesterday, or tomorrow and to be the I Am of now.
  • Perspective makes our present state of being, and if our perspectives dwell in the past---we aren't living today. We are inanimate, which is dead to action.
  • We can change directions, be they physical, emotional or mental only by acting--moving!
  • Begin with what you have even if your only action to hold out your hand for assistance, now and what-ifs are unimportant to motion as they only excuse inaction.
  • It's time to break worry patterns by actively pursuing changes in communication patterns, financial , health, and in relationships with the Taurus people in your life.
  • Worry is a type of mental lethargy whose chains are easily broken by activity. Live the now, you are not "a past person" you are a I AM Now person, an active and unique expression of alive motion.
  • We need each other, to see ourselves---its okay to reach out when we feel like we are in mental quick sand. You'd be surprised how many will grab that offered hand an pull you onto your feet again.
Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations.  May you live long and prosper.
