The Thoth Tarot: 6 OF DISKS-SUCCESS & The Night Sun Tarot- 6 of Pentacles
[ Crowley's Disks represent Pentacles in other decks]
As always, the 6's are about a balance of trinities which makes them powerful and stable in dynamic movement.
The Thoth 6 of Disks card represents physical attainment, accomplishment and
success. The Thoth 6 of Disks and Night Sun Tarot- 6 of Pentacles,represents the harmonious energy of Earth, that the
balance of polarities have made fruitful, the Son, Father, and
Grandfather aspects of electric force and the Maid, Mother, and Crone
aspects of magnetic force....It is Born! This fruitful birth, is shown as one red apple on the Night Sun Tarot Card.
It is important to remember
that this is earth, and gravitational forces will pull this successful
creation down into itself, where everything becomes slow and heavy, so
this success is temporary but enjoyable just the same.Therefore, on the earth are shown 6 coins of pentacle centers, in a grouping of 3's.
There is a great beauty
here that comes from the balances of mental, emotional, and physical
energy enhanced by the higher conscious states of Self that are
represented in the 6th Sephira/ Beauty/Tiphareth; the Christ/Buddha consciousness. Being Beauty feels
This Beauty is not determined by fashion, nor culture, this is the Beauty that created me so it could be me ! The great inner beauty of synchronicity; the harmony radiating from the Divine Creative, through the Soul/Psyche and into the form.
Generosity is shown here, as you now have enough success in physical health, finances, and emotional balance to assist others in their success.
Astrologically, this card is Moon in Taurus, whose sigils is shown on both Tarot cards,
which suggests productivity (Taurus) and a deep inner satisfaction (The
Moon) or a deep desire on the subconscious level. The foundation of
creation vibrates from the deep passion and desire of I-Will-Be and the deep satisfaction of manifestation as I AM Me! Therefore,The Qabalistic Tarot-6 of Disks: Success, or 6 of Pentacles,
represents the 6th Sephiroth-(circle) of Tiphareth, that is the
Full Harmonious embellishment of the Energy of the Element, i.e. Beauty,
in the Element of Earth. This card shows even greater embellishment
because the Moon is in Taurus which is where the Moon is most exalted.
Therefore the Moon is in its highest form and adds the illusion of
brilliance; However, the Moon is in transient, so the approach to
perfection is not long lasting, as it will be assaulted by the cycles of everyday living.
Therefore, to achieve success in any endeavor means
that we must be in union and/or communication with our inner master
and/or The Real Person (Soul)
who built us as it's masterpiece. There is only diligence and doing
indicated here. Hence, this is where the axiom," Above all things know thyself"
really comes into its own.
Upon viewing this Thoth
Tarot Card, one can see that the Disks are arranged in a Hexagram as a
skeletal format. The Center of the illustration glows with the light of
the rose madder of dawn surrounded by three concentric circles of
golden yellow, salmon pink, and amber. (due to processing fade these
colors are very light). These colors represent Tiphareth (Beauty) fully
realized on earth.
are arranged in their normal attribution but they are
shown as disks irradiated by the central Sun which is idolized as the
Rose and Cross. The rose has 49 petals, which is the interplay of 7 with
7. Seven rayed stars are the Symbol of the Great Mother Goddess, as is
the Moon. Upon investigation, one will find that the Male electric force
and the Female magnetic force are never separate even though upon first
glance they appear to be so.
Hence, the formula for success is indicated in the six planetary circles shown on this card:
- represents success through discipline.
- r reminds us that success is achieve by being open and flexible to options that may present themselves.
- reminds us of our beautiful heart and follow what has heartfelt meaning in our life.
- The Moon indicates success attainable through following the truth of ourselves, by being authentic.
- reminds us about how important organized well timed communication is important to success.
reminds us to express continually steady energy into our professional
or personal issues in order to achieve success; the Tortoise vs the Hare
scenario, where rapid spurts of energy do not achieve success whereas steady on does.
Thoth 6 of Disks/Success suggests that success comes from deep within
rather than the superficial without, which is symbolize in this card as
the joining of the Western Cross (deep inner self integration) and the
opening and blooming of successful achievement ( the Eastern symbol of
success- the lotus). This is also implied in the art of the Night Sun Tarot 6 of Pentacles, as on the leaf- barren tree an inner power, created the perfect apple.
To reiterate; the sixes imply definite accomplishment and the carrying out of a matter.
6 is not only a number of accomplishment, but also that of the Sun/Son or Christ/Buddha consciousness, thus a certain sacrifice of control is made by the self-conscious. The 6 is also the number of
the Dying gods, and means a definite personality deconstruction in order
for reconstruction to the original construct, that brings success.
The 6 of Disks-Success, is aptly named The Lord of Success, as
the Moon is exalted in Tarsus: However, this Lord of Success is also shown on the Night Sun Tarot Card, as a great tree, hoary and leafless, yet who succeeded in baring fruit. Here the charm, subtleties, ebb and flow
of the Moon are merging with the hard work and deliberate earth
qualities of Taurus, ensuring success in business and other earthly
matters. Which is implied by the scattering of coins at the base of the tree.
To a Qabalist, this is Tiphareth (Beauty) in Assiah
(the Material World). The natural flow of the Moon's charm and
subtleties are united with the hard work and deliberate qualities of
Taurus resulting in sure success in business and mundane areas.

When Thrown during a reading, the Six of Disks implies:
- Material attainment and accomplishment, but with a caveat dealt out by the law of Karma; you'll have to put out effort, to receive back success.

affairs, is also suggested. Because of the necessary flow of wealth
into prosperity, the 6 card also suggest that we share our good fortune
with others in order to keep the flow going.
- The card
suggests charity, synergy and success, in physical or financial
relationships. Hence, the 6 of Disks card is esoterically about the
Union of ternary consciousness,the I AM Me of one linked up with the I
AM Me of another, suggesting that success is because of united goals.
- This is a all around satisfying card to get in a reading, especially
when it lands on a Earthly position in a reading [Such as House and Home or Beneath you
positions of a Celtic Cross reading] or when there are other
complimentary Disk cards around it. The sixes are always a relief from
the severity of the fives!
