Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 8 of Disks-Prudence & The Connolly Tarot-8 of Pentacles.


The Tarot of EliThe Four Eights of the Hermetic Qabalah are attributed to Hod (eighth Sepiroth--Splendor) on the Tree of Life. Since Hod is in the same plane as the Sevens (Netzach-victory) the same weaknesses and/or defects that are in the sevens will apply. Yet, in a sense, the alleviation of the Seven's weakness is also being applied in the Eights. One might say that the mischief has been done  and their is an action against it---much like white blood cells attacking a intruder in the blood stream; not a total cure but a beginning in that direction.


The Thoth 8 of Disks-Prudence:
The symbol of the Sun is on the top of the 8 of Disks, as it is in the sign of Virgo which belongs to the Decan. The number 8 which is Hod (splendor), represents Mercury. Mercury in the Sun, places Mercury in its highest spiritual aspect; signifying a loving intelligence applied to material matters; those of the Horticulturist, the artificer and the engineer.


The interest of the 8 of Disks, is the interest of the people as applied to labor, agriculture, and creative expression. It is illustrated as the geomantic figure Populus and the disks may represent flowers or fruits of a great tree solidly rooted in fertile land.

The essence of Virgo is the secret withdrawing of  Energy into the fallow earth. Moreover, Populus is the Moon retiring  from manifestation to her conjunction with the Sun. The study of gemantic figures is recommended here. [Aliester Crowley's 777] .

As always, the accompanying cards will inform the reader in which direction the 8 of Disks is pointing. There is also an deeply spiritual aspect peculiar to the figure 8; it is O, the symbol of "without end" twisted into what looks to be two separate zeros joined at the cross roads; an intercourse, if you will. This is known as the symbol for Infinity and/or the Magi symbol of the Lemnistrate ( Latin: lemniscus meaning Ribbon) which is shown as the Figure 8 laying on its side[See the Magus Card Trump #1].

To the Tibetan Tantric this is the symbol of Yab Yum which translates to "Goddess God face to face"... What is known to the Magi, is that the figure 8 is how the One became male and female who together form the Divine Creative. By one energy twisting upon itself, the concept of male and female---i.e. God/Goddess and/or  Electric and Magnetic was created. It could be said that Electric male force and Magnetic Female Force came from God's introspection of "I AM"...which implies existence.

The Connolly Tarot-8 of Pentacles, uses the traditional pentacle instead of the disk concept of the Thoth Deck. Crowley recognized that everything in the Universe, is made of particles, that comprise atoms and therefore, spinning to form stability.
The medieval artist didn't recognize this fact, and therefore used the symbol of the pentacle, representing the four alchemical elements and the five element of spirit.

In the traditional Connolly Tarot, sits a craftsman, polishing the 8th pentacle, while he displays the finished seven, hence proudly displaying his finished work.
Therefore, the 8 of Pentacles, represents a strong character, master of his profession, and stable in his professional future.
The golden tones of the sun and the earthen colors illustrate this colorful stain glass like card.


When the 8 of Disks/Pentacles is thrown during a reading it implies that:
  • Within 8 weeks or 8 months, or in the past 8 weeks or 8 months, the querent has used, skill, prudence, and cunning in their labor.
  •  There is an implication here of  being over-careful in small things at the expense of great which could mean gain of money in small sums.
  • Also, industrious cultivation of land is indicated .
  • However, there is a deeper spiritual meaning as well, for Prudence is part of a Master's Journey, the Swift solar Messenger Mercury, linked with Virgo and the Sun, is again "loving intelligence applied to material matters." .
  •  Mastery of Physical, Spiritual, and Mental union is implied here, and as many of us know, the spiritual undercurrent of a  Master's journey is in carefully planted steps that often has been referred to as Impeccability... where each moment is to be experienced completely.
If ill dignified.
  • Meanness, avarice, hoarding and lack in enterprise are indicated.
