The Thoth 3 of Wands-Virtue & The SpellCaster's Tarot-3 of Wands:
Represents the Spiritual Integrity, Honesty, that is the Virtue of Spirit, Mind and body, in total agreement.
Virtue is the effective potent force necessary for putting thoughts into action. This is the holy balance of the 3 that defines and clarifies the identity, where you see yourself more clearly.
is the conscious state of heart, mind and physical action working in
concert with each other; seen as three lotus blooms in united purpose on the Thoth Card.
Where I AM ME is a dynamic ternary creative action rather than a "wanna-be"
dream of powerless separation.
On the Thoth 3 of Wands,The sign of the Sun,
above and Aries
below, represents the astrological sign of the Sun in Aries, symbolizing
radiant dynamic energy moving in new directions but from a foundation
of virtue. The communion of mind, heart and physical action, is a holy
mass of dynamic creativity that "does unto another, what you would have
done to you"...a virtuous motion that assists life in its ever-forward
The Tarot-3 of Wands and the 3rd Sephiroth-Binah:
now, you know that "Mother Binah"-Understanding, is an aspect of your
own Energetic Unconscious, as we are all connected to the Universal
Collective Unconscious (C. Jung). The prefix Un
tends to make one think of something "less than" consciousness, nothing can be farther from the Truth. Here Un
just designates the Un-seen, the Unknowable, the Un that is One; The Universal Collective.
Being unseen does not mean less in anyway, anymore than unseen H-bombs
are less powerful than the one on your doorstep or that 99.6% of your
whole Self is Unseen lessening you in anyway. For the Power of Spirit is
all around you, yet you don't see it. Not because you are lacking in
anyway, but because 99.6% of the electromagnetic spectrum, of which you
vibrate from, is unseen by the naked eye.
is a child of the Divine Collective Unconscious of the Universe, and
that Mother of consciousness, is Binah. In the Great Sea of
Imagination ( I-magi-nation), your image floats in the amniotic fluid of
Dark Energy and the "will to form";
Binah is the Great Will to Form of the Sea of Unconscious. Everything,
is from the Unconsciousness, including the self-conscious we call
consciousness and/or Me.
The Texts of the Golden Dawn said it best:
In Binah is a thick darkness which yet veileth the Divine Glory in
which all colors are hidden, wherein mystery and depth and silence, and
yet, it is the habitation of the Supernal Light. There The Supernal
Triad is complete. And the Sphere of its Operation is Shabbathi, or
rest, and it giveth forms and similitudes unto chaotic matter and it
ruleth the sphere of action of the planet Saturn. And Jehovah Elohim is
the perfection of Creation and Life of the World to Come. And the
Archangel is Tzaphqiel, the Prince of the Spiritual Strife against Evil
and the name of the Angels is Arahim, the strong and mighty Ones who
are also called the Order of Thrones."
"The order of Thrones" are represented as the Four Queens of the Tarot who are united with the Four Kings; Their Husbands.
Generally, the four 3's
represent the realization of the Action (conception) of the Prince
having been conceived
that is the Son/Sun of God, symbolized as the central figure on The Thoth tarot card as central flames radiating outward form the Supernal Union of
the upper Triad on the Tree of Life. This Sun/Son of the Divine creative is also shown as the Hawks on the SpellCaster's Tarot, for It is the Horus, the Hawk headed Child of Isis and Osiris who are the ancient Egyptian female and male gods of creation.
Action is definitely launched for good or evil, but with Virtue, it is for the expansion and liberation of Life. The Autumnal colors that indicate this is a fiery card, are still shown on the SpellCaster's 3 of Wands, both in dress and foliage. Here one is shown having the self-trust to launch new projects, keeping mind and heart open for new opportunities. The 3 wands are shown as the traditional wooden staffs of medieval tarot. This card can also indicate that one is awaiting a traveler, as the 2 Hawks are coming in for a landing.
THE Thoth 3 of Wands-Virtue, is also called the Lord of Established Strength.
Well noted, as the Sun is in Aries here. There is great power where the
Sun illuminates Aries, the Cardinal Sign of Fire often related to Mars (Mars is the Old Roman god equivalent of Aries).
The 3 of Wands
also represents Binah's influencing the World of Pure Spirit (Atziluth).
To an astrologer, the entry of the Sun into the sign of Aries, heralds spring, even thought the artistic freedom of the SpellCaster's card shows Autumn, which has the fiery colors necessary to indicate the fiery element of this card.
Hence, both cards sport
the blazing colors of the Hot Sun, depicting great strength for
expression. Here also is absolute power that can corrupt
absolutely, thus egocentricity, pride and conceit are lurking dangers.
Yet we have Virtue here, the key to Spiritual integrity and honesty.
This Tarot card is a kind of Christmas
, for it is about the Union of Chokma (Masculine Energy
Conscious of Will to Force-King) and Binah (Feminine Energy Conscious of Will to Form-Queen) and the
resulting birth of the Prince which is Tiphareth (Beauty) on the
Qabalistic Tree of Life. Astrologically, the entrance of the Sun (circle
with a center dot) into Aries ( the V sign) traditionally heralds the
Spring. The Great Mother has received the transmitted Will and conceives, prepares and by Understanding, gives birth to its manifestation.
This is the harmonious union of I (Chokma), Am (Binah) and Me (the Persona). It is Spiritual Integrity, as the three aspects of Spirit are conjoined in the collective of I AM ME.
Virtue, is always being true to yourself;
this Truth being the union of spirit, body and mind conjoined in
agreement. Some people would call this listening to your heart and
acting with heart felt determination. Without self-trust, Virtue
possible and our self-dishonesty will make us victims of our own deceit
which in turn makes progress impossible. Therefore the 3 of Wands card
reminds us to clarify and redefine our Identity to the Original Form of I
AM Me, "The Real Person" called The Soul, who when active, is Spirit, Mind and Body. Hence, one no longer accepts identity
from those around us and/or our environment. We are not Man-Made, we
are Spirit---a spiral photon- energy conscious of the Quantum that spins through time-space
building self-images from thought, for they are our only visible
identity. All of us are the Princes and
Princesses of The Divine King and Queen of this Universe, i.e. Children
of the Divine Creative who by creation, inherit the Universe. But as all
inheritances, one doesn't earn it, One claims it. We know how, for we
are the Original I AM's identity. Just by saying "I AM...", is
declaration! I AM health, wealth and well being, is a claim on our
Divine Inheritance, whereas, I AM Sick, poor, and depressed, is our
rejection of it.
3 of Wands Tarot card represents great strength in individual expression
which when ill defined, can also mean egocentricity which may manifest
as pride and conceit. Pride and conceit are easily avoided by treating
others as you want to be treated, although achieving that without Virtue, i.e., self-trust,
is not done. The 3 of Wands card also symbolizes the Fire of Will, and
increasing energy known as the inner fire and/or inner light; the spiritual power that is inherent in our bodies.
we have heard the name of God
and/or the Divine Creative defined as
AM. We have forgotten what that the birth of self-image is called "ME", a
collective copy of the One. Yet many of our religions say that we are made in God's image
should give us a clue! This card is about the creation of the Inner-Serpentine-
Fire that builds the Life of the Outer Self out of the Big Three of
Creation:Will, Passion and Intent!
All of us have inherited this
that defines Beauty in this physical world...and we are
Definition! The Birth of the Christos, or the Buddha consciousness
the "Son/Sun" of the Divine Creative, was our first conscious birth (our
Unconscious birth was in the invisible Sephiroth-Daath- called
Knowledge), represented on
the Qabalistic Tree of Life as the 6th Sephira-Tiphareth/Beauty. The
Number 6 is the totality of 3+3=6, the Trinity of Father, Son, and
Grandfather and the Maid, Mother and Crone, producing the "Child" who is
also a Divine Androgyne. We
should love that inner fire
that enlivens our outer bodies but
many of us seek for it "outside" of ourselves; hence we knowingly or
unknowingly reject our wholly birthright. By being true to yourself, you
can not only "see" the "inner Bright and Warm Higher Conscious", the
"Sun of the Divine Creative, but also feel it. However to be true to
you, Virtue must be defined in your actions as "Self".
I AM ME and by being the best Me I can be...I see the best you!
Each of us is another way to be Me of the Divine trinity of I AM ME and therefore know that Me is all about possibilities and is not written in non-flowing stone...it's written in the flow of Solar Logos Light! We are the Children of Stars, Microwaves of Spirit (Spiral)-Self Conscious,
who came to enlighten ourselves and the children of Planets by making
them in our own image, i.e. giving them our identity by adoption. So Adopt your Body
with loving acceptance---as you would the Christ Child because it is
the outer child of the Inner Light! Virtue built the body, so it could Be itself! Virtue states,"I Am the Will and the Way, and I own the Day"!
we can't have days, unless we have forms made of time-space. My body,
makes my day! To Love my body is to have a day of love.... to not love
being, is to not be and that sadly states that we only have the yesterdays of the dead.
To avoid being "wanna-bees" (those who don't live in the now and therefore, dead to today) we must
remember our true Virtuous name---I AM and we must love the experience
that name gives us ---"ME"! All other names, are masks of entertainment to the I AM.
Qaballist knows this virtue, as they practice the magic of doing to others what they
want done to themselves, and this is "being true to thine own self".
The volume of Powerful flow of the Life Force (Fire) is predetermined by
the Virtue of the Manifestation. Open channels, unblocked by deception,
denial, and bigotry, are the best Life Force vessels who are able to contain, a manifested Solar Logos. Often, people
confuse morals with virtue, but morals can be rules imposed by others,
where as virtue is the morality of Self-Love. The Virtuous know
that when you treat others as you would be treated, you are practicing
the only morality needed. One cannot give what one doesn't have!

are aligned and share clarity of purpose before you act in or handle
your relationships with the Aries people in your life; Aries -March 21
to April 21.
- The state of natural clarity is represented in
this card by the crystalline structure in the back ground. While the
flames represent the ability to await the natural unfolding of things to
- Inside all of us is the "inner fire of balanced
integrity", it is an inheritance of our Divinity; however, one is
reminded that the smoke of denial has dimmed the flames of I Am Me, as a
spiritual expression of Life-self- awareness into the slave thinking of
"I Want To be me"(Wanna-be).
