Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-ACE OF DISKS & The B.O.T.A. Tarot-ACE OF PENTACLES

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-Egyptian Tarot- Ace of Disks:

The physical  world of  visible material objects.

The time of winter and the space of North are attributed to this Ace.The four levels of internal success in consciousness:
  1. Emotional,
  2.  Mental,
  3. Spiritual and;
  4. Physical, are represented by the four wings of the Thoth Deck Ace of Disks.

External success is represented by the coins within coins and the crystals within crystals (center of card). Disks colors are those both of the Earth herself, and those of her organic biomass, creatures, trees, people, and all vegetation.

When thrown, this card indicates that you are no longer willing to accept and/or support the dichotomy of experiencing internal success and not experiencing external success or vise versa.

The Thoth Ace of Disks card shows a capacity to manifest success both internally (spirit/imagination) and externally (physical world). Since all Aces represent a years time, the Ace of Disks represents the opportunity to experience both inner and outer success equally in a years time.

The  Thoth Ace of Disks represents the seed or essence of materialization, and shows favorable manifestation during the periods of the Earth signs of the Zodiac; Capricorn, Virgo and Taurus or you may experience both internal and external success with the Earth sign people in your life.

The Qabalistic Ace of Disks card also represents reward of practical effort in the material sense, such as opportunities, security, stability in ownership. The four Aces, are the seed elements of the alchemist's four elements  Earth, Air, Water and Fire. They also form the Shield of David, the Pentagram, which denotes the Triumph of Man. To know that Mankind is a Spiritual Triumph, will go along way in helping you "Above all things-know thyself"!

The  Hermetic Qabalah, the Thoth Ace of Disks represents the seed of the Entity called Earth; to us moderns it is known as the intelligence of Gaia. In Quantum Physics, The Quanta (minute particles), may be called the seeds of Atoms and atoms are unions of quanta, and considered living things.

The Ace of Disks, as seen in the Thoth Deck, represents layered idea, upon idea; a collective and requires a great study of Crowley's Liber Al, and 777 along with the Equinox to understand the Magick involved.

The  Thoth Ace of Disks, shows a spinning Mandala, for that is what the Earth, Luna, and Sun union is. It is the Mandala of Sacred Life on Earth/Malkuth, the Kingdom of Living Light. This combination of Atoms, photons, electrons, neutrons etc spinning together to form an Entity, is a great sacred act of Divine Phallus (Solar-electric forces) and Divine womb (magnetic forces) that have been represented in Mythology as long as it has been recorded. We have a modern study of this Myth (theory) and call it Theoretical Quantum Physics .  Again, The Quanta are sub-atomic particles and can be called the "Seeds of Atoms". Study Quantum physics if you want more explanation of this perspective.

The Ace of Disks is also a Mandala for the New Aeon of Horus. This card is layered depths of Gnosis (Knowledge) that can never be seen by first glance and requires in-depth study of the Tree of Life. The "Will to Be", required Non-Being; The One Mind, to weave patterns of fantasy out of its own Energy, so that it could "be Itself". The Universe is the Fantasy of A Divine Creative, where Creation becomes you to become intimate with its  self-realizations! To even get a glimmer of understanding of this is to revise your perspectives on Fantasy.

Every thought you think is a Fantasy, that the magick- physical body makes into "reality" by sensitizing it and enacting it.

Therefore, each of us is the Playwright, the Play, the Actor and the Stage of our Fantasies! As I said, reality is a weaving of layers upon layers of Dream-Fantasy. All the Universe is in the Mind of One Conscious Energy that is called The Universal Collective Unconscious and/or the Divine Creative.  All the Dreams of this Mind, are animated by the Union of Goddess (magnetic womb) and God (electric Phallus).

The Ace of Disks is a glyph of Earth in the new Aeon of Horus 9the 22nd century human self-consciousness), for if we fantasize our world, why not make a Great Fantasy of Union and Love, rather than the brutal Fantasy of divisionism and war? That is why Crowley calls the element of Earth cards, Disks instead of Pentacles, as most other decks do. It is Alive, spinning, Layer upon layer of the Greater Self Love-realization that builds the All that we may call the Spiral Universe.

For the Card Reader, the Ace of Disks mundanely means that the seeds of Material gain are sown, labor, power, wealth and all  things of earthly material are in the works for the Querent. It represents materialism in all sense of the word be that good or evil. So in a sense, it is illusion. Our Fantasy, our Dreams, shape the reality of our world; all phenomena is imagined. There is also the process of Neti-Neti (Hindu for "Not this-Not that") that comes with this card and is the motivating power of consumerism that we hear called "the pursuit of happiness". This is a process where the querent is gathering stuff to make them happy and finding out that "He who dies with the most stuff" is still not happy.

Happiness is a state of gratitude not a "state of more" which implies a state of poverty. Seeking validation through possessions, is a turmoil of not this-not that.  "...to know thyself" is to know that the very process of Divine Validation made you manifest, to seek validation is to deny yourself! To the Divine Self, creation is a validation of I Am Me. " I am, therefore I am valid", is a proper knowing of happiness.

THE Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- ACE OF DISKS: is also often represented as the Pentacles of Tarot. Nevertheless it is always
The root Power of Earth.

The Tree of Life of the Hermetic Qabalah,  shows the Crown-Kether and the Kingdom- Malkuth as both ends of the Tree. As Above, so Below, is the Qabalist's axiom for Magi...one who is the Will of Kether on the Material Earth Plane. It is Whole-ness of Spirit (Holy Spirit) and is the destination of return for all who study the Qaballah. Earth is not perceived as a "lesser form" of Spirit but as an achievement of Total Spiritual Self Awareness!
There is no logic to No-thing "becoming" some-thing, so that is may return to nothing. No-thing (Kether-Energy) obviously Desired Itself  into being something---because it is the I AM who creates "Me"!

We are masters of Time-Space, for we are a  time contained field of electromagnetic energy that is 99.6% space and are achieving an active part of the Conscious Collective of Energy Self Awareness, by being able to focus that awareness down to the scale of human sensuality.

You may call yourself Souls, but know not what that means. Souls/Psyches are Libraries/Collectives (Psyche) of Personalities created by Spirit/ a Spiral Entity of microwave frequencies of Conscious---your name is indeed legion! Successful creation in time-space is again form, which has an alpha and a omega--because form requires a beginning and an end, i.e. time. With out time-space, no form could be made.Without transformation of forms, motion could not be kept! Change (transformation) is the motion of "will to force" and it is how we animate time-spacial concepts as "alive" being. You may now see the illusion in this....because we are Life we make alive what is imagined as ourselves! But worry not! For this is how the Divine, as evolutionary Self-Awareness, creates a self-powered laboratory  full of "sensors" for the experimentation of Self-Identity and uses the Power of Limitation, to become discerning in that creation!

The thinker of thought is always greater than the thought but without experiencing that thought, the Thinker is Unaware of It's self concepts; Albeit "A designed Form" of awareness, and therefore not empirical-self  in the Formless Conscious of Energy, it is the only way TO BE! Will-To-Be is our Soul! And Being that is alive and self-aware is what we create on Earth as a Soul fractal self identity, in the name of the Divine! That Name is " I AM"! That is the Great Work of the Soul! To manifest a material being that is the Sensual Gate-Way of Kether on this Earth; a "Me"! The Union of Crown and Kingdom which because of understood accomplishment, shall never be divided again!

This card affirms the new Aeon.The manifestation of  the Solar Being and the Material Being as One Being who is many! In other words, the Being whose name is Legion (The Beast)! That would be best known as, I AM ME!

Matter, may be called the crystallizing consciousness which is a materialization of Ideas that began in the "Great Dark Thick Ocean of Binah" who is Understanding united  with Chokma- wisdom. If you look deeply into you mind, you can see that when an Idea is understood, it now has Image!

The seeds of Image are as a seed of a tree, all the knowledge/wisdom of the Tree is in that seed which becomes something greater than itself as it grows into "another way to be Tree". We are such seeds. We are the seeds of I AM that has acknowledge itself as probabilities rather than a stasis form of Law. We are the Rule Makers of our own Universe---we make a Rule, to organize chaos, creating foundation of definition and then grow beyond it by expanding and liberating our identity from that previous definition. You could call us the Seeds of Conscious Evolution. We are always the "Exception" to the very rules we make. It's called FREEDOM OF IDENTITY CHOICE!

So this card reminds us to choose and then fertilize and nurture that choice with Will-To-Be, AND/OR DARING! This is indeed a great inheritance! We can be and/or are what ever we define ourselves to be! To be "ill defined" is to think ill about any or all that you "see". To be "Well defined" is to know that everything you see is "another way" to be you (identity of the One Energy) !

Again the greatest seeds of Life that you can plant come from,"Doing unto another what you would have done to you", no matter how they "do unto you" for that is their doing and not yours! We must practice what we "think we are" for that is the nature of a KNOWING "Thought Form". i.e. our crystallized conscious-energy bodies, which are the "seeding" of Spirit on this Earth. Outer growth depends on a fertile and nurturing internal awareness!

Remember, you cannot erase thought by suppressing it for it is a created form of energy! So expand/transform it instead and as a seed it can grow into a fruitful tree. For instance, let's say you wake up in the morning and think,"Damn I feel lousy"! Don't try and suppress it by denying you thought it by overlaying a thought such as " Oh not really, I feel great!". That will only fail, and magnify that ill feeling. Instead think expansively and liberate that ill thought towards well thought! For example, you may think ," Damn I feel lousy but in 5 minutes I'll feel better!"  And in 5 minutes you will feel better and as a seed you will continually feel better by "watering" it every 5 minutes with "I feel even better in another 5 minutes"....etc. We can do the same for any ill thought---Such as," Boy is she/he a bitch!" By just adding a positive. Such as," However, those who go after what the want always seem bitchy to those who don't."  This understanding just freed you from "disliking" yourself as you go after what you want in life!
Hence, this card, The Ace of Disks reminds us of the Magic- Seeds we plant in our own Identities by definitions supplied to those images of the One Energy around us and as us. Remember, if it exists, its supposed to!

To see error doesn't mean to condemn it! After all, error is 50% of Wisdom; Wisdom being the ability to create, see error (in that creation) and correct it. The Body is were we correct, by discernment, the Errant thought because we can "Feel" thought and if it "hurts" it has error in it! Happiness is constant growing, a flowing stream of evolving self-identity, whereas, depression is a stagnation of self-identity! You are Good enough for the Divine Creative to imagine itself as,--you are good enough for you! So get over yourself and get on with You, impeccability is what we do!
The Thoth Tarot- Ace of Disks, represents the seed of the Energy Transformation that we call Earth. The knowledge of the new Aeon of Horus, dispels the archaic concept of Earth as a evil, passive, immobile, even dead  element . Rather, Earth is a transformation of Intelligent Energy Conscious that many moderns call Gaea. Now this may all be new to us of the "Divide and Conquer" military industrial complex, but as I tour my Soul, I find a Perspective-Personality, of Native American manifestation who named this Intelligent Force of Earth, Grandmother River.  This "primitive" personality, as did the Alchemists, seemed to understand that the " Water and Sun" union, transformed the energy of soil into living forms, long before our scientist "discovered" this very concept called "Thermodynamics".

The Thoth Deck Ace of Disks, is a styled rendition of a Molecule, (the union of atoms) show in the back ground of the Emerald Green of the Aeon of Isis (Grandmother River). This Emerald Green is of the King-Scale color decided upon by the Egyptian Hierophants. However, this green is not the original vegetable green of Isis but that of the " emerald-spring green" of the new Aeon following the resurrection of Osiris as Horus (the disassembly of the man/made self-consciousness, installing the Solar Conscious/Soul). Nor are the disks considered to be the dead chemistry of coins; rather they are the whirling  emblems of  Star, Planets, atoms etc, all of which are whirling spheres.

In the Hermetic Qabalah, there is the new doctrine of Tetragrammaton where Heh' --the final earthly component of water (imagination), the Daughter, is set upon the Throne of the Mother (Unconscious), to awaken the Eld of the All-Father (Divine Creative Fire/Consciousness). In the words of Zoroaster, Tetragrammaton is a force that is," rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud." Therefore the Name is not a dead symbol, but a whirling Sphere of Divine Action.  Therefore, "going inward" into your "Whole Psyche" and coming back-outward with a new collective Self-Conscious Name, is a common action among the adepts.

The  center of the Thoth Deck Ace of Disks, is a complicate Hieroglyph  representing the "the chosen priest-and apostle of infinite space" and/or the "prince-priest the Beast." (Liber AL. I.15.). In the center of all is yet another form of Tetragrammaton, the Phallus, showing Sol and Luna, with the number 666 inscribed, as to equilibrating the seven sevens adding to 156 (Babalon-The Scarlett woman.) Now showing all this is far too lengthy and complicated for this blog, so I recommend that you get the Book of Thoth- by Master Theron, and scroll to pages 210-212 for further information and references.
However, this central cipher is enclosed in a Heptagram that is interlaced with Pentagons whose sides are extended forming a wheel of 10 spokes, bounded by a Decagon encompassed in a circular band with the inscribed name of TO META EHPION-- ( This seems to be Greek for "the following ether" a reference to the "philosophers stone" of Alchemical Achievement).

About this whirling Disk are its six wings(6 is the number of the Sun) The Thoth Deck Ace of Disks is the glyph of Earth as understood in the new Aeon of Horus. Sol and Terra are known as living beings, one's constant companions in a Universe of Pure Joy.

The B.O.T.A. Tarot: ACE OF PENTACLES, follows the tradition of the older tarots and therefore fails to illustrate the "Whirling force", that is seen as the "seed" of all things.
However, it show the Hand (yod) of the Divine Creative, holding a pentacle, a symbol similar to the Pentagram, acknowledging the four elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth, along with the 5th Element known as Spirit.

The Cloud acknowledges the "Water/Fire"mixture of Divine Feminine Imagination and Divine masculine Fiery Conscious that once united create Air (The Mind).

As in many of the older Tarots, the Minor Arcana or "small cards" are given very little symbolic consideration. However, both Crowley and I believe this to be a grave error. The Major Arcana are about Subtlety, and ethereal forces. While the Minor Arcana, are about Objective manifestations, pertinent to the objective world of a person's experience.
The outer world of "in your face" objectivity is happening in a very sensual rapidity, and must be dealt with on a self-conscious level. Whereas, the Subtlety of the "inner world" of the Unconscious, is an inner pathway to expanded consciousness. 

Being an owner of a mundane psychosomatic form, I know that I must act upon my observance of the objective world while also bringing the inner world's understanding of what is so manifested, and the reason it has happened in the realm of Soma. But reasoning is never enough, as one must get off of One's "numb butt" and act! For even the Higher Self cannot change one's direction of travel, without that one moving!
Therefore, I would suggest that a diviner in Tarot, advise rapid action upon the small cards, (even deciding not to act, is an action) and meditation/skying on the Major.
DO NOT IGNORE THE SMALL CARDS, for these are what one calls "their life"; a world of cause and effect!

When the Ace of Disks is thrown during a divination:
  • New material conditions for a new satisfying path in life shall ensue.
  • The Ace of Disks is the "seed" of Matter brought on by the joyous union of the Sun-Conscious  and The Womb of Earth/unconscious.
  • Beginning of successful ventures.
  • The seed of prosperity.
  • Earth Magick, and/or the ability to manifest ones ideas, and keep at them till they mature.
  • The  inner seed of spring, and/or the end of the inner winter of depressed creativity, needing only that one "plow the field" to plant it in the outside world.
