Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth 9 of Swords: Cruelty & The Jungian 9 of Swords: Sharing.

The Tarot of EliThe Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 9 of Swords-Cruelty: presents a ghastly image of nine crooked, chipped swords, dripping blood. If this isn't gloomy enough, we have the celestial rule of Mars in Gemini; a primal raging hunger that has no restraint. 

9 is a number of completion, and is also the number of the Sephira Yesod-Foundation, on the Tree of Life. Yesod is on the middle pillar of the Tree of Life, and has rectified the imbalances of the past energy disorders of Air. This, however, doesn't rectify the degeneration of the energy as it continues down the Tree. In the Hermetic Qabalah, Yesod, the ninth Sephiroth, is the Foundation of all manifested forms and forces on Malkuth-the physical plane and 10th Sephira, of the Qabalistic Tree of Life. 

The Nines, generally show very great fundamental force because they rest on the Firm Foundation Base of Yesod.
 Now this is pure mental power, which is neutral, so that means it can be used negatively or positively, depending on the perspective of the user. Discrimination and/or discernment is the Key here.


Swords, usually depict the pure intellect, that acts like air currents as it's energy-in-motion (emotion) continually heats up with passion and cools down with rationale.

In the case of the Nine of Swords, consciousness has fallen into an unenlightened void of fear-based rational thought, stirring heartless animal passions; passions that are of the psychopath and the fanatic. Hence this is the character of the inquisitor; it seems intellectual but the self-consciousness is operating in a rage that is without restraint. 

All this sounds just awful and terribly gloomy, yet, it is the common cultural foundation of "Divide and Conquer" indoctrination technique of enslavement that has been going on among the populace of "government ruled societies" for centuries. The clever evil of rule, is that once a person's mind is divided against their body, you have produce a weak willed slave consciousness that must pursue happiness.

Our present consumerism society is based on "fanning the flames" of that primitive raging hunger of survival thinking, in order to produce the "fanatical shopper" whose world is always lacking self-fulfillment. It is the realm of the Neti-Neti (Sanskrit for,"Not this-Not that") consciousness, that consumes unrelentingly, hoping for and in the pursuit of happiness; a futile seeking of happiness because happiness isn't in accumulation nor resides in glutinous bellies, nor can  it be caught by pursuit. It is a mental self-perspective!  There is only one result in the completion of such commercialized thought and that is insanity.

I ask you this, "How can a mind that makes the body alive, and live as an sensual-identity of Spirit, possibly hate/fear, its very own creation and have a "good life"? 

Here's a paradox: Most religions claim we have  divinely granted freedom of choice, and yet instead of using that Divine Creative given gift of Imagination freely, we are to become "enslaved thinkers of a doctrine of self rejection"...how then can we be the "image of god" as fundamental religions claim?

This obfuscation, is also a perfect example of the cruelty of Martial energy in the paradoxical twins of Gemini. Where one thing is "thought/said" and the opposite is done.

Thankfully, many of us have enough strength in our character to know that happiness, is not a thing, but rather a "state of mental, emotional and physical synchronicity" and have found out that by treating other people with respect, ("...do unto another as you would have done to you") we have a happier presence on this earth.

Therefore, the Nine of Swords is the state of self- consciousness that is called "wanna-be"; where one is not alive/happy/fulfilled until they achieve some future possession or goal. This person is a mental-corpse; a zombie, who lives only in yesterdays emotions and uncertain futures, leaving the moment of  Now vacant of their presence. This phenomena of  "walking corpse" is not a new thing that some Hollywood director dreamt- up as the latest horror thriller. Rather, you'll find this "living dead" concept in the two thousand year old Gnostic Gospel of Thomas, that is part of the Nag Hammadi Library. In paragraph 56, of the Gospel of Thomas, it is written: "Whoever has come to understand the World has found only a corpse, and whoever has found a corpse is superior to the world. " If you can understand this Gnostic statement, you can understand the Nine of Swords-Cruelty. Because the practice of "Self inflicted cruelty" is going on in most human brains right now, most of us constantly belittle ourselves, in order to appease our dogma; i.e. our inner-slaver. The "World" is an illusion, which created by "those who rule definition", while the Earth, a real world, is not seen at all.

The Jungian-9 of Swords: Sharing, is likened to a mirror image of the Thoth Card. Here, the meaning is working with others in copacetic cooperation.
This could be a fulfilling operation of a marriage, friendship or business.

The indication here, is of great generosity, that is not to be considered as charitable, but rather a perfectly equal "give and take" relationship.

Being both pleasant and charming, this is a fulfilling relationship for all, yet it doesn't mean it will insure profit in business, as would the Jungian 10 of Swords. However, because of mutual admiration and respect, if something does go wrong, the tendency is to work it out amicably. The foundation of thought here is "to do unto another as you would wish have done to you". 
Therefore the meaning of the Jungian 9 of Swords is:
  • Generosity
  • Works well with others.
  • Easy problem solving among partners, because of respect and admiration.
  • Day to day activities are comfortably shared with one's partner.

When the Thoth Nine of Swords is thrown during a reading, the Querent will be or has been experiencing:
  • Illness, malice, cruelty, pain, despair and suffering, in a period of nine days, or nine weeks or from self cruelty thought processes since nine years old.
  • There is burden, want, oppression, as well as, subtlety and craft.
  • There is also lying  to oneself or others because of and "inferiority complex".
  • All of this dysfunctional thought is basically from "self-belittlement", that is often so subtle that we don't even acknowledge it in ourselves. But the program is clever, as you will notice whenever you try to mentally or physically, step out of "comfort zones", you will be challenged with worry and seemingly rational explanations on why you should not take that transforming step.
  • Each of us has experienced the temptations to remain chained to the bedeviling thoughts of our subjugation- definitions of the few who wish to rule the many. 
  • The 9 of Swords, reminds us, that we are not preforming well mentally, when  we are under the rule of self-belittlement.  Again, you are obviously good enough for God, you are good enough for you! In our God-ness (Goodness), resides the constant inner ability in each of us, to become More Self in expression, rather than becoming less by seeking more stuff outside of our self!
