The Qabalistic Thoth Two of Wands
[Dominion] of the Hermetic Qabalah represents Chokma in the suit of
Fire. This is pure will; will in its most exalted form. Crowley called
this card "...will unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every-way perfect"
. [Al. I.44].
power of Mars in its own sign as Aries, is shown as the back ground to
this card, explains the unopposed power of this card. The crossed Djores (Tibetan Thunderbolts) represent a
celestial power; Energy balanced to initiate a current of Force. Since
initiation of Force is often at first destructive to the object it is
focused on, this card is at first destructive to comfort zones and is
often viewed with fear and repulsion to the assault. This later changes
when the greater plan is understood and the individual mind willingly
co-operates with the "Secret Lover".
The Heads of the Djores,
Khadro-Ma which are considered Angels or Demons, depending if you are
frightened of the Initiating Force or joyously accepting the necessary
destructive (masculine) /constructive (Feminine) nature of this Current of Force. Studying the
Tibetan concept of the Khadro-Ma gives even greater insight into this
Cards Force; However, the Tibetans are very secretive about the Khadro
and will only state adamantly that they are the "highest state of
Feminine" in the Universe and compose about 10,000 Myriads in number. When called Khadro-Ma, they are acting as Kali Ma in the Hindu theology.
The Khadro are also stated to be the "Holy guardian" angel for Practicing Tibetan Tantric Monks.
The symbol of the the two Dorjes
(Tibetan symbols of the Thunder bolt) although supporting the heads of the divine feminine, show balanced male forces: Kether and Chokmah. The
electric force that is a masculine active flow of energy towards
achievement of goals. In this balanced but dynamic state, where the expressed will
of personality and the soul are in union, there is no lust for result;
but joy in the "dance" of creation. Hence this card shows committed active power; a "do
or die" kind of flow that will not be denied. This Spiritual
Sovereignty is where the body is balanced and recognized as "another"
spirit form, thereby becoming tireless in the flow of electric force.
Again, The heads adorning this Dorjes, are of the Khadro (ma) [Tibetan Angels who are the highest form of female]
show that this is a polarizing force, balanced by the magnetic
receptive force of female. A definite form is enlivened by this union
and pure will makes this new ideal manifest. Remember, there is no separation between Chokmah and Binah.
Therefore the Two
is a card representing combined Spiral flows of energy,
therefore it represents a very powerful force of "twin flames" ; as in
all power, it can be ill defined. Electric male energy given a thought form to animate, such
as fortune, health,and magnificence can also be given forms of illness,
poverty and mortification. All of which it will enliven. So it is best
to understand the "law of Attraction" and know that what you put willful
emotion to---will be your life motion. To focus you energy (Emotion is
Energy-in-Motion) on lack, misery, hate, and distrust will only get you
more lack, misery, hate and distrust and in its extreme will result in
violence towards others!
Great will takes great focus to change the direction of energy in motion, so deep focused meditations on "What you are grateful for"
when done diligently, will succeed in changing the charge of powerful
attraction towards forming a more positive creation.
This card also represents Sex-force
in its purest form: before the sexes were connived.
It is the intercourse of Spirit will in the "honeymoon suite" of the Unconscious which focuses the body
personal conscious will, towards achievement. The Will that is Spirit, "The Secret Lover",
is the Force here and the body is the Form the force is taking here.
Polarity, is achieved by the flowing union of force and form so once
again I state that highly charged emotional thoughts must be focused on
what you want and not on what you don't want, making this a positive re- birthing
This is also a card of self confidence and affirming a positive
approval of yourself. All of which is necessary to accomplish your
The Jungian Tarot-2 of Wands
concentrates on creative inventiveness expressed boldly and often rashly.Here is the birth of pure genius.
The specific actions of this inventive genius, is to do things their own way, refusing to be channeled by anyone or any corporation. Therefore, the Gray Sephiroth, Chokmah, is seen as
the Wisdom of Invention, that personified means one is totally immersed in one's work; such an individual is often irritating to others.
Interestingly, such inventors mimic Chokmah, who has no support from others, as there is no "other" at this time in creation.For the individual, there are no others in their invention either.
