Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot-10 of Disks & The Connolly Tarot-10 of Disks

The Tarot of EliTHE Qabalistic Thoth- TEN OF DISKS-WEALTH.

To an astrologer, this card represents Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the old "God of Commerce" and when He rules in Virgo (an earth sign) material gain becomes so vast it may lose its importance.

A practitioner of the Hermetic Qaballah would know the Ten of Disks as Malkuth (Kingdom) in Assiah (Material World) which would represent an embarrassment of riches.
The divinatory meaning is physical prosperity, abundance and material success.

The Tens  of Thoth Tarot are where the formative-elastic world ends and the absolute solidification of form is established and are attributed to Malkuth (Kingdom). This is as solid as it gets. 
Therefore this Hermetic Tarot card suggests a complete wealth, which includes financial security and firm foundations for home and family. Also suggesting that property has been or is being acquired for the founding of  new generations or traditions.
There is nothing "Higher Consciousness" about this card, as the Swiftness of Mercury, is set about gathering material gain in a total focus and all is at the very pinnacle of objective physical success. This cleverness in mind for prosperous activity in money matters, can lead to a certain dullness of mind, a slothfulness brought on by feeling totally secure  and a resistance to take risks.
To reiterate, the Sephiroth, MALKUTH is Earth, that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah.  It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are Three Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious.

Assiah is the only Sensual Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life during meditation, as they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and thus feel the unconscious experiences, consciously.  But to travel, the other Sephiroth without a body... is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the mundane "Five Senses" of the physical  body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I". All is Self....and all that one will ever know is "Self".

What one may fail to understand when viewing all the individual ways a mind is being presented, that there is only One Mind,"The Universal Divine Collective Unconscious", and each of us is a unique perspective of Being-Me, presented by that Mind. This Wealth of  Self-Perspectives, can cause us to "not see the forest through the trees", thereby losing the joy of observing such wealth to fear of being lost among the many.

To those who practice the Mysteries, (they may be surprised that they are Tantric) there are considerably more senses "felt" than five, some say, as many as ten  to thirty three (Tantra states there are 33), but describing everyone of these sensual states is not for this single blog to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality, start your journey up the Tree while you still support a physical body.
The Study of Spiritual Self, is Tantra, and that is why Aliester Crowley, the famous Hermetic Qabalist, also was a practitioner of The Tantric Arts.

Traditional explanation of Tantra. (from Wikipedia-The free encyclopedia)

The Tantric tradition offers various definitions of tantra. One comes from the Kāmikā-tantra:
Because it elaborates (tan) copious and profound matters, especially relating to the principles of reality (tattva) and sacred mantras, and because it provides liberation (tra), it is called a tantra.
A second, very similar to the first, comes from Swami Satyananda.
Tantra embodies two Sanskrit words: tanoti (expands) and trayoti (liberates)... It is the system by which you liberate or separate the two aspects of consciousness and matter - purusha and prakriti or Shiva and Shakti.
A third comes from the 10th-century Tantric scholar Rāmakaṇṭha, who belonged to the dualist school Śaiva Siddhānta:
A tantra is a divinely revealed body of teachings, explaining what is necessary and what is a hindrance in the practice of the worship of God; and also describing the specialized initiation and purification ceremonies that are the necessary prerequisites of Tantric practice.
Prabhat Ranjan Sarkar describes a tantric individual and a tantric cult:
A person who, irrespective of caste, creed or religion, aspires for spiritual expansion or does something concrete, is a Tantric. Tantra in itself is neither a religion nor an "ism". Tantra is a fundamental spiritual science. So wherever there is any spiritual practice it should be taken for granted that it stands on the Tantric cult."

According to Tibetan Buddhist Tantric master Lama Thubten Yeshe:
...each one of us is a union of all universal energy. Everything that we need in order to be complete is within us right at this very moment. It is simply a matter of being able to
recognize it. This is the tantric approach.

Which is also the Hermetic Qabalistic approach through Tarot and the Tree of Life.


The Thoth Deck TEN OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. However, Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world of spinning atoms, i.e. the centrifugal force of a Spinning of a Disk. All things seem solid in the Kingdom of Malkuth because of the Stability of a Discus/Atom in its spin. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many, as only those who take risks can) and agree with his philosophy.

It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our inner-conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion. Our Mental/emotional perspectives cast our body forward or backward as a disk is cast in an Olympic game. It takes dedicated practice to cast our body/disk towards it's intended life-target. In magical practice this "hitting the mark" is calledImpeccability. Such accuracy requires a soul to manifest many bodies, before it hits the mark! That mark being the expansion and liberation of Life (Tantra/Qabalah) .

THE TEN OF DISKS, is Qabalistically called the Lord of Wealth and as previously stated, is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah.

Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world.
 The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance.

Souls are also collectives, hence, some Souls have over time, gained so much  objective wealth in self-perspectives, that they can manifest more than one "individuality" at a time. Therefore, it is found that "One Soul" has many bodies "made manifest" at one time.  This phenomena of "one who is many" is also shown as many states of communication, Mercury, on the 10 of Disks card.

As an impeccable Qabalist knows, each new manifested individual Personality is a Fractal made of past personalities, that reside as "memory" in the Soul (point of creative consciousness in the Divine Unconscious). Therefore, after many life-times, where the Psyche/Soul has experienced the entire Zodiac of personality construction, it can choose to make more than one "Identity Fractal" at one point in time.  This may be where the idea of "soul mates" has come from.

This vast materialism is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life, of Ten Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world; it is the Goal Achieved by the Conscious of The Divine Dual Creative; where the I Am becomes I AM ME-the manifested and therefore sensual trinity of the Above Supernal Triangle.

Therefore, our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. "The Great Work", hence the Universal Divine Creative, walks among it's creations of Self identity.

As energy that is Spiral (Spirit), we are "everywhere and no where" at the very moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into the eternity of the Divine Collective Unconscious. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, as "Myself", giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to discriminate my motion! In other words----"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective and or Self-Definition. I am a Soul, a whirlpool of conscious, in the Ocean of Unconscious!

This Rocks! I find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually forming reality to my Self Awareness.  To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind of the Divine Creative...until now! Of course, as in all great self discoveries, there is the risk of mortality!

It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place" in Time Space! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are the biggest bad-ass or a Lustful glutton. Rather, We are the accumulated Wealth of Self Image-Creation-- a fractal of spirit made alive and sensual in order to discern thought through sensual means within the One Mind.  Therefore the Divine Creative's Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution- not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (e-motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct ideas right at the time and place of "seeing/sensing an error"!  I Am the Image maker "ME", who can recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"! I AM ME is our individual name of inheritance!

For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria (numerology) which simply means The First Sephira -that is Kether, is The Above Ocean of Unconscious, that we bring to The Below, the tip of the Whirlpool that is individual consciousness! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal! Thus, we are "Lust without the Need of result"! Lust being the Divine Frenzy, that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life of Ten dimension and each dimension has 10 Trees! Like I said, we are Fractals! There is a risk to a Soul who is brave enough to attempt Malkuth, for a fractal can disperse in chaos, if some parts insist they are "separate" from the whole.

The Connolly Tarot-10 of Pentacles, again, keeps to the traditional mundane meaning of this card.  The Pentacles are gray granite, implying solidness and nothing is moving. One is satisfied in their wealth, but it is a physical satisfaction and therefore not complete.
Being slightly detached, there is an awaiting of the completion of "As above, so below".
However, wealth in family, is definitely shown.
What I find intriguing,is the image of the older man, walking stick in hand, accompanied by his faithful dog. This implies to me that he is almost the "Fool"-key 0, and is awaiting the transition into complete trust and innocence.

When thrown during a divination, this card suggests:
  • That in ten weeks or 10 months, the opportunity for completion of material gain, but nothing beyond, will be presented to the querent.
  • There is only a caution here about becoming too "self-satisfied" where thinking that all is done and nothing more need be achieved except cleverness in monetary issues, which can dull the mind into miserly dysfunctions.
  •  It behooves one to remember that Wealth is a gathering of money, and prosperity is a spreading around of wealth; a type of reseeding..  So take and give must be balance for continued mental performance.
  • One is reminded that Wealth is connecting the Above and the Below into a complete  psycho-physical awareness.
If this card is ill defined:
  • Nothing runs smoothly as it is "one thing after another".
