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

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-PRINCESS OF DISKS(Pentacles):(see astrological Birthday wheel chart to establish your archetype personality)





On the brink of transformation, the Princess of Disks personality is the earthly part of Earth. Brooding in wonder, she is strong and beautiful while pregnant with the secret wonder of the future.

This lovely Priestess of Demeter, wears the crest of the Ram and in her right hand, a sceptre descending into the Earth, where its head becomes a diamond. To Hermetic Qaballists, the Diamond represents the Precious Stone of Kether (The Highest and purest Light) and symbolizes the Purest Light formed in Matter in the
"diamond form of as above-so below".

As would Freya,( Norse Grove Goddess) she stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat-sheaf which is a symbol for Demeter. But she is not alone. Contrary to the sexism of divisonistic thought, She is never without He and He is never without She, so She holds in Her left hand a disk which bears the Chinese ideogram denoting the twin spiral force of Goddess/God (The Divine Creative of all Creation), in equilibrium; from this is born the Rose of Isis (Rose-Mari), the Great Fertile Mother of the Nile delta.

The characteristics of the Princess of Disks personality are more numerous than a blog hopes to enumerate for She is the Ultimate in Womanhood and has all the characteristics of the "Womb with a View" , the Mother of all Forms, and is represented in every ancient and modern culture of this world.

She contains all the characteristics of mysterious woman and it depends on the influences she is subject to whether "one or the other" of these traits manifest as action. However, this is not a scattering of energy, rather whatever trait she acts on, it is pure and focused, and life changing. To the shallow (those afraid of their depth), she is bewildering inconsistency; to the centered, she is a Powerful Movement of Beauty. She is both nourishing and vitalizing.
We may see her as Persephone arising from the nether world of winter into the bright light of Spring, symbolizing that from the deepest, darkest depths arises the Wisdom of "Womb-Rite", The Power of Limitation; the resurrection and regeneration of the Living. There really isn't any negative here, unless one finds her ability to "be purely in the moment" too rapid and unsettling for their need for past linear- stability. Such a shallow one would be unable to see that stability is based purely on "the movement of Moment" and not a linear line of addition. Thus is she serpentine in her motion. The universe is Spirals upon Spirals, dimensions upon dimensions, union upon union and suffers no division. To enjoy her, you must dance with her in her sacred grove of Life.
 
The Thoth Princess of Disks, is about Mastery of Creativity and Birth of  New Forms. She is the pregnant one.
As you may have gleamed by now, all these cards represent states of conscious energy that weave a pattern of energy conscious in the material world.

The Greeks called this state of consciousness Persephone, who enters Hades, every winter and escapes Hades and manifests on Earth every spring.
  1. She is the pioneering nature of fertility,(represented by the Aries horns on her head) and is carrying the seed of the Ace of her element:
  2. The serpent transforming into an ermine cape, represents her ancient earthly passion to create.
  3. Her lighted crystal staff, shows her desire to give birth to new forms that are in alignment with who she is.
  4. Her determination to manifest the organic balanced harvest is shown by the pedestal of  grains that she is standing on.
  5. The balanced union of  female magnetic and male electric forces are represented in the yin/yang center of the lotus blossom which show the creative approaches to motherhood issues or issues surrounding her own mother (Persephone and Hera had issues).

By careful comparison, the student can see how the Princess of a Suit, is Married to the Ace-Seed of an Elemental force.

The Thoth Tarot- Ace of Disks, represents the seed of the Energy Transformation that we call Earth. Despite the demonizing of nature by Christianity,  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 was  very familiar with this "Lady of Spring", and his people 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.

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. 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.


There is the new doctrine of Tetragrammaton, in the Hermetic Qabalah, where Heh' --the final earthly component, the Daughter, is set upon the Throne of the Mother, to awaken the Eld of the All-Father. In the words of Zoroaster, Tetragrammaton is a " rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud." The Name is not a dead symbol, but a whirling Sphere of Divine Creative Action.

Therefore the center of the Thoth Deck Ace of Disks, is a complicate Hieroglyph  representing, "the chosen priest-and apostle of infinite space" and/or the "prince-priest the Beast." (Liber AL. I.15.).

In the center of all this action 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 repetitive for this blog, so I recommend that you get the Book of Thoth, and scroll to pages 210-212 for further information and references.
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 card is a research and  meditative must for the Student of Gnosis. )
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 PRINCESS OF DISKS;   Represents the earthly part of Earth. This Princess is strong and beautiful and impregnated with a secret wonder. Crested with the head of a ram (another symbol for Aries, Mars, The Lightning Lord, and/or the male electric force, the Sun) signifying a head full of fertile ideas.  She holds a diamond (precious stone of Kether)  tipped sceptre, into the earth, which symbolizes the birth of the Highest- Purest light in the deepest darkest elements. What the Ace of Disks professes, she makes manifest.

Again, as would a priestess of Freya or Demeter, the Princess of Disks stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat-sheaf, which is the sigil of the Priestess of Demeter. She is pregnant with the secret of the future. ...The bearer of a new Spring; a Spring that frees us from the "dark horrors of winters past"; the fertile Consciousness of Horus rather than the dead militaristic  and slavery-obsessed winter consciousness of Osiris.

The disk she bears, is a Chinese idiom (yin yang) denoting the twin spiral force of the universe in equilibrium giving birth to the Rose of Isis, the Great Fertile Mother. The characteristics of the Divine Feminine are too numerous for this blog enumerations, suffice it to say, that the Princess of Disks is  Womb-hood (Womanhood) in its ultimate projection. Therefore, I suggest that anyone interested in the many characterizations of the Divine Feminine get the book:  THE WOMAN'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MYTHS AND SECRETS, by Barbara Walker.


The B.O.T.A. Tarot-PAGE OF PENTACLES, follows the medieval art tradition of depicting an androgynous figure that was called a page. Even so this card is comparable to the Princesses of the Thoth Tarot, albeit less of depiction of the Hermetic Mysteries.
The Page is dressed in the russet colors of earth, and the blue/violets of the sky/Air that represent the unconscious/imagination. Upon his hat are the feathers that represent fire, a subtle reference to the solar spring, while balance in the page's right hand is the pentacle.
The castle in the background, refers to royalty and therefore, the Court card.
Again, the mysteries of the Power of Limitation, are not explained in the art of this card. One must remember that in medieval tradition, Woman as a Power in this Universe, was considered a heretical thought by the Christian Church who was in power at that time, so the tarot cards of this period avoided depicting anything that would bring the inquisitor's and their torches to their lodges.

When the Princess of Disks or Page of Pentacles is thrown, it represents:
  •  A young woman with rich  brown or red- brown hair and dark eyes,who is generous, kind, diligent, benevolent, careful and endowed with persevering courage.
  • She may also be pregnant with child or birthing ideas, projects, identity and self aspects.
  • She is on the Brink of Transformation and Revelation.
  • She may also have a concentrated desire to learn, and is applying her fertile mind to scholarly pursuits.When this card is thrown, for male or female, the Thoth Princess or B.O.T.A-Princess of Pentacles card represents:
  • The creative part of the Earth anima within the organic form. We are all Androgyny, (female side of brain and male side of the brain) and both sexes can become pregnant with desire and creative ideas.
  • This creative idea and the desire to manifest it has been gestating with in your nature for some time.
  • For a woman, this card can represent the need to resolve motherhood issues.
  • For male and female, this card can represent the need to resolve or restructure relationship issues with Aries or Scorpio people in your life. ( Aries-March 21 -April 21) (Scorpio: October 21-November 21).
  • Do to the very nature of the Princess of Disks "tunnel focus" on creation, this card can warn us of  the dangers of becoming so focused on one thing, that we cannot enjoy the life all around us. 
  • Rebirth is apparent from past defeat, or that a new love is blooming in your life etc.
  • This is the Lady of Rebirth and Renewal and to understand the Depth of the Ultimate Womb---is to meditate long and hard on this card, and to read the Goddess Myths with the eye (I) of the soul. In this world, where love is a profit sharing endeavor, it is hard for most of us to believe that "Love built Me to be Itself"----Love is a state of energy consciousness and is Now, and fearless of the future.
  • Force manifesting into form.
  • Energy acquiring density.
  • A young person that is:
  • Purposeful, determined and diligent.
  • Responsible, preserving and intelligent.
  • Generous, reflective, and sensitive,
  • A good student who is worldly and sensual.
If ill defined:
  • The young person, becomes wasteful and prodigal.

Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
