Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-Key 19- The Sun & The Wild Wood Tarot- Key-19- The Sun of Life

The Tarot of EliThoth Tarot -Key 19- THE SUN & The Wild Wood Tarot- Key 19- THE SUN OF LIFE:

The Principle of Collaboration, Teamwork, and Partnership.

Give forth thy light to all without doubt; the clouds and shadows are no matter for thee. Make Speech and Silence, Energy and Stillness, twin forms of they play.
-Crowley

The Tarot- Key 19, The Sun, represents the Solar Life Force that awaits expression within us all. The Thoth Card displays twins dancing on the green mountain of creation, symbolize the inner dance of male/Animus (electric) and female/Anima (magnetic) energy that is dancing in us all. The dancing Hindu gods of Shakti (Goddess) and Shiva (God) that are the rhythm of Life's heart beat. All the signs of the zodiac that encompass the Thoth Sun, show that we bring exuberance and consistency to the dance of two (one on one relationships) as well as to group or organizational settings.

The orange band around the Sun represents the implementing of a shared vision which is the purpose of Teamwork and Partnership. Creation is a form of play and exploration and it is the Divine Child within us that is always seeking to express itself in unlimited ways. We are infinite beings, children of The Divine Creative and can never grow old. We are the manifested Joy of Creation who has come to dance among creation as a joyful expression of I AM ME! We are both magnetic and dynamic and we are a "self experiment" that cannot be made by anyone else . It is time to remember that if we are good enough for the Divine Creative to create, then we are good enough for ourselves and any creation!

The Tarot-Key 19: The Sun, is described as the "collecting intelligence" by Dr. Paul Foster Case, the founder of B.O.T.A., in his Qabalistic text-32 Paths to Wisdom. Therefore the Sun has control over the zodiac which is represented by the 12 rays and pictures of the zodiac on the Thoth card.

The Sun card represents The Lord of Light, Heru-ra-ha (Horus), in his manifestation to the human race as the Sun, spiritual, moral and physical. The Lord of light is also the Lord of the New Aeon of Horus; Horus being the proposed self-conscious state of the New  22nd century Human, and is depicted as a Hawk headed god in the Egypt of Thoth.  The Hawk head, depicts the Higher Self; The Energy-Conscious State of Horus is the State of Enlightenment that is often sought by the adept and neophyte alike. It is the awakening of the "sleeping" soul who now communicates to the brain. Here the Real Person, the Soul/Psyche  claims its body back from the definitions of Rulers and/or the world of man.

Therefore new Aeon has for it's purpose, the complete emancipation of the human race from the indoctrination of intransigent prejudicial thought forced upon them by enforcement of rule and doctrine-and/or man-made- morality since about 25,000 BCE. We know from history, that when those who had made the transition from indoctrinated morality to enlightenment,  have been ill received by ruled-society and persecuted for displaying the Life, Liberty and Love of the "Solar Self",i.e. Soul.
Hence, The New Aeon, represents a social change from social enslavement to the Life, Liberty and Love of the emancipated Spirit, dancing in its flesh.

The Dancing Twins of the Thoth Tarot Sun card, represent the divine male and female, eternally young, innocent  and shameless.  The Fertile Earth is represent as a green mound aspiring to the heavens. The fact that the new Aeon doesn't mean absence without control (love your neighbor as yourself--is the control) is shown by the wall surrounding the top of the Fertile Earth. Yet the Twins dance outside this wall, as they are dancing in the light, in which complete freedom is both the cause and effect of the new solar logos energy upon the earth. The ignorant restrictions of both sin and death in the old indoctrination, have been abolished by a enlightened knowledge of  "create-see error and correct it", i.e. Wisdom, free from the pathological aspect of blame and knowing that death is merely Life transforming itself. After all, I AM Life, and the body is "alive", meaning it is a simulation of life.

At the feet of the Thoth Twins are the symbols of both the Rose and the Cross, from which they are arisen and still supported.  The Cross is now expanded into the Sun (The 6th Sephroth-Tiphareth), from which it was derived, and has expanded beyond the four arms of mundane law (mundane law is associated with the #4) into the 12 rays of both the zodiac and the 12 Hua-Most Ancient-Holy Ones - also known as the Eld or Elders ( Hua is numerically the #12) who sponsored the Human Race and came from "the Heavens" (Annunaki in Sumerian or the Nommo of the Dogon). 

This formula of the Rose and Cross has expanded into the  complete union of terrestrial and celestial communion in human kind which is shown by the Wall completely encircling the top of the mound. Because of this communion of Solar Creative Fire and Terrestrial intelligent-matter, the Spiritual Fire has changed into something "rich and strange", producing "living gods" as the "inner Sun", which is the light of the Soul- personality rises just as the physical Sun does in the material world. This is most profound, as the Inner Solar Being,(the Inner Master/Christos/Buddha) is now consciously in operation of the physical body as both Master and Masterpiece in energy conscious union. Of course, this Master and Masterpiece communication can't happen until the self-conscious, becomes Mercury, the messanger of the gods, and/or the Magus. With a Magus personality, one's self-conscious "flies" between the worlds of man and spirit, with winged feet; winged feet imply, not bound to the earth.


The Hebrew letter Resh- is Rivka , the English translation is Rebecca and supports a story of it's own.

And when the time came for [Rebecca] to give birth, behold! There were twins in her womb. The first one emerged red, entirely like a hairy mantle, so they named him Esau. After that his brother emerged with his hand grasping on to the heel of
Esau; so he called his name Jacob...The lads grew up and Esau became one who knows hunting, a man of the field but Jacob was a wholesome man, abiding in tents. Isaac loved Esau for he ate of his venison, but Rebecca loved Jacob.
                Genesis 25:24-28

The Great Matriarch Rebecca and her twin sons, is a story of contrasting elements in all of us----we are Spirit (Issac) and we are of Genetically Modified Animal forms (Esau). There is a clash among these two, these twins, Mothered by "The Womb-With- A-View" (Great Mother Binah). In the Form of Mother Earth---Esau (animal Personality) and the Mother of Intellectual form (Conscious/Unconscious). Esau is in essence, the "Survival Mind" of the animal and Issac is the "inner-Sun"--enlightenment of Soul. This may look like a form of competition ----each one competing for His First Born rights--but it is a 'communion'where each one is joined at birth to "expand and liberate" both body and Soul.

If you read on in the book of Genesis, you will see that Isaac (the father of the twins) love Esau and was to give him the first born blessing while Rebecca loved Jacob and set up an elaborate scheme to get the first born blessing for Jacob.
The battle between the animal-subconscious and our solar-conscious, is well known in us all---where the animal instinctively sees threats (enemies) and is poised for attack, the Solar mind sees "another as myself" and acts with compassion. We all feel that struggle in our "heads" and " hearts" believing that somehow they are separates and in conflict. The Body is Loved into Being, and the Soul is Love of  Being-----Love is the joining factor here!  Knowing that the Qaballah is about "the motion and form"; of Supreme Being called Adam Kadmon and how the Union of seemingly opposites makes the "flow" from motion into form possible.

The Hebrew Story-Letter Resh shows us a deeper understanding of ourselves. Soul is the Beloved; Physical Body is the loved. Therefore,  the greatest mistake of many fundamentalists is to believe that the body is somehow bad and of less value than the Soul.  The Sun Card -Resh- is the "Collective Intelligence", meaning that It has control over a number of components. In this case, the 12 (12-Rays) signs of the Zodiac. These signs are the 12 guideposts  of Personality and the "Wombs"(receptacles) of  Planetary Influences, one of which governs the birth and life motion of each incarnation of the Soul-Persona (the Soul is a persona of Spirit) and body personality! The Sun is the central link (Tiphareth) to the incarnation at hand and to all the Personalities that have been experienced in past incarnations.

The Collective Intelligence of the Sun also unites all the component parts of the Personality, discovered on the lower paths of the Tree of Life, and infuses them with the dual action of the Sun,i.e. light, brilliance and warmth, which are considered intellectual qualities! The path of the Sun is the highest level of human intellect (light, brightness and warmth=enlightenment).

Resh means head  which is consistent with this thought of high human intellect. This  high intellect is a combination of animal intellect and Soul intellect---not as some would have you believe--a divorcing of the two! The Sun  basically is the Intellect acting on the dualities of the human condition, consciousness and its human vehicle (power tool). This is the point of connection of the human intellect with the higher intellect of solar conscious [The Greater Life]. The Sun is also "the Son" who carries on the work of the Father (Chokmah) which is Force/motion and the Body is Form of the Mother (Binah).

As adepts of the Qaballah, we know we are the Union of Hermes-Aphrodite (hermaphrodites) who give birth to Solar-Body unions .... of course you'll have to do more studying to see this easily. These two Children of the Divine Androgyny, motion (solar) and form  (matter) are both loved and their Greatest Value is in their Union of Equilibrium (Beauty). These children are represented as the dancing twins who move hand in hand throughout creation (motion and form). Be as the Children---is enlightenment. Let your Spirit supply the motion of your Form; Love must power and/or be the motion in the body, who is the Soul's power tool!

The Wild Wood Tarot-Key 19- The Sun of Life, also depicts the lesson of Resh, which requires the knowledge of Love and the Love of Being---to be the inner twins of expanding and liberating life! Knowledge is not "thought", it is KNOWN. Hence, this Love must come from the "Heart"--known but not thought of, while the intellect of the body--the Head--must move as love (thought action), rather than as animal reaction! In other words Knowledge of Union, rather than the survival thoughts of division! Represented on the Wild Wood Tarot is, Adam Khadmon, the "Supreme Being" that is as The Sun and Radiates all Life Motion. This Solar Mind knows that "All that I see is another way to be me". This is the Knowledge of the heart, ask any child who hasn't been indoctrinated in "good-bad" (enemy creation), they are in union with all around them and with bright eyes of Wonder look at all things; Eyes that aren't veiled by fear which is indeed "thoughts that be-devil us"!  Trusting the Spirit that made you. Knowing that you have no enemies for even death exists for the sustainability of organic matter and Soul evolution. A sustainability, that as a Spirit Personality you know that you can always have another way to be a discerning self conscious, as bodies are transforming from organic matter every second.
 
Survival-Thought is the Devil that deceives us as bedeviling thought, always "nagging"; always chipping away at our confidence.
Knowledge is our Divine Inheritance and is known as "intuition" which is the thoughtlessness of knowing. Creator has joined with creation in order to be a sensual God---i.e. intimate with creation. A tough idea to get, but once gotten-never forgotten! 

Resh is the first active path on the formulation- intellectual  side and is the activating force of the Personality. The Supreme Spirit Self, the Higher Self and the Personality are all composed of an intertwining of the Feminine side and a Masculine side (the twin serpents on the Caduceus) and forces resulting from the interaction of opposites. The Sun-Resh is also known in the Hermetic Qabalah, as the "Collective Intelligence" meaning that it exercise control over the Zodiac as shown by the 12 rays on the Thoth Deck Tarot Card-The Sun-Key 19. Astrologers know these zodiacal signs as  the twelve guideposts of Personality and as receptacles (feminine) of Planetary Influence. The Sun is not only a link to the present incarnation but also a link to the past personality incarnations. Being collective, the Sun is also infuses all the components parts of the Personality on the lower paths with the actions of the Sun, light and warmth which are considered intellectual qualities.

You may notice the "Dancing Twins" as show on the Thoth card, before they were called the "Sons of Seth" or the "Daughters of Seth",  we may have known them as --the Twin aspects of the Goddess-Anima or God-Animus. The Fiery Spirit or Spiral Energy of Masculine and the Magnetic =Formative Sophia (Goddess of Wisdom) feminine side. On the Thoth Card, Their arms cross to represent the Union of these Divine States of Intellect and Energy (in Tantric Image they would be in "Sexual Union") that must be established to "Collect" all the necessary Forces in order to establish a Intellectual and living Being.

The Path of Resh, Key 19- The Sun or The Sun of Life, is intellectual, and THE SUN represents the highest form of human intellect (The Real Person) which is both a balance of Masculine and Feminine conscious energy. So in a physical representation, when both the Left and Right side of the brain are in equilibrium with the Solar Forces (Kundalini) within the body, we are at our most advanced state of Personality. This is a profound union of the Personality with the Inner Sun where there is a deep physical inner feeling of Warmth and Light not unlike the external feeling of warmth and light a sun bather may experience. Also, like the physical sun, you cannot look directly into the "inner sun" with out suffering "damage", for it will burn away the illusion of "outter" sight. Reminding us of the opposites of the Sun, that it is both the harbinger of fertility and barrenness which is the Double Letter meaning of the Hebrew letter- Resh.

As a symbol of Resh, the human head is represented, which is our Collective Intelligence. The Path of Resh is an initiation of the Personality to the Great Source of Inner Light which takes place in the material body that affects the dual components of the Lower Self (Chemical and Intellectual). The Adept knows that the component parts of the Personality (Lower Paths on the Tree of Life) function through the body as an  experience-collecting vehicle for the Spirit. The human body is an important Crucible for the Alchemical union of Higher and Lower Self communion. Therefore, the Physical body is a Sacred Place; our temple, our forge, where ideas are forged into artistic-intimate-sensual-presence and where Male and Female are not divided into a purely errant "Battle of the Sexes" as proposed by the "Divide and Conquer" indoctrination of divisionism!

Remember "God creates what God wants!" This is a Hermaphroditic path, where we return to the innocence of a child  and as we travel upwards this Path of Resh, our Personality grows younger, innocent and sees with Wonder rather than the critical eyes of the good and bad Pavlovian domesticated and divided-personality of  the Adult. We begin seeing What God Sees!

Tiphareth is the Central Sun (Son) of the physical microcosm and connects us to the Dark Sun (limitless light-Father) of the Macrocosm and the Path of Resh begins us on the Journey to Central Sun-of God, within. There is much to study about this card, Cain an Able ( bareness and fertility), the Dragon-faced-Men, Sons of Seth, Daughters of Seth and the Christ who Didymos Judas Thomas in the Gnostic Gospels quoted as saying"....I am the honeymoon suite." and much more!
 
The Wild Wood Tarot- Key 19- The Sun of Life: connects the Solar Consciousness to the Planetary Unconscious; The Green Man and the Green Woman. The Sun of Life, the Green Man and the Green Woman, are the trinity representing fertility. This card is associated with Fire, the time of Noon, and the gaterway of the Psyche. The importance of our Sun to this world of life, cannot be overstated. Everything represented in the explaination of the Thoth card, is here. The Great Sun behind the Great Image of Adam Khadmon, is all here. We are the simulated Suns, who mate with their simulated Wife, the planets; we are "downsized" stars, who become intimate, through avatars,  with all that they make alive by their radient beauty.
It is hard to imagin the raging power of the inner sun, yet, it has imagined you as itself, an Avatar of Enlightend thought, action and intimacy with Creation.

None of us know happiness, until we know that Real Solar Self, which we are the avatars of. The joyous, heat of it; the Brilliance of its Roaring Bliss; the perfect balance of it's violent spinning motion, the Shout of "I WILL BE", that Disturbed the sleep of the Dark, and still echos as our heart beat; the breath of our bodies, and the rythmn of our sex.  Man-made, we have never been, nor will ever be. But Maker of Man, I AM.


When the Key 19-The Sun or The Sun of Life, card is thrown during a reading:

  • It generally means Gain, Glory and riches all of the Fertility side.
  • The querent is or shall be experiencing, glory, gain, riches, by means of partnership, cooperation, and team work.
  • Beginning a new cycle of life, growth, reward, truth and progress.
  • The Divine Marriage of the physical, mental and Spiritual Wholeness.
  • There is a radiance of self trust and rekindled enthusiasm that revitalizes something that has previously existed in their life.
  • One is experiencing a time of rekindled enthusiasm.

  • What has previously existed, is now being revitalized by our inner Sun.
  • You have learned from the past and are now ready to make refinements and adjustments so that you can expand and liberate yourself from past self- imposed limitations.
  • New and more effective self expression.
  • Wholeness, achievement and revelation come together reaffirming you as Life.
  • Optimism.
    If ill defined by the accompanying cards,
  • arrogance and vanity maybe displayed---but this requires the influence of very evil cards. All in all, when the Sun rises, all is well.
  •  If surrounded by very ill cards, it can mean the bareness/desert side which would be Arrogance, Vanity, and Display
