Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- Knight of Disks & The SpellCaster's -King of Pentacles

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- KNIGHT OF DISKS & The SpellCaster's Tarot- King of Pentacles.

The Knights of Thoth Tarot, and Kings of more traditional tarot all rule from Chokmah, the 2nd Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, that is both Wisdom and the Will to Force. He is the idea of male polarity AND THE WILL TO FORCE OF HIM IS REPRESENTED AS THE KINGS.

Now there are those who think that Male came first, or that Female came first, or who love the argument. This argument is because of our short-sighted physical perspective on sexuality. The startling fact to some, especially the posturing male, is that if you come up with the idea of male, then you come up with the idea of female at the same moment.There is no male concept without the concept of female and vise versa. So the argument of whom came first, is null and void when talking about the Supernal Triangle (The upper Trinity).

The Will to Force (Chokmah) and the Will to Form (Binah) are a figure eight of united  spheres, formed from One Energy, to produce the Will - To - Be. Although they are represented on the Tree of Life, as communicating on one path, it is in reality a fiqure 8 of one infinite energy, that is One Energy, in 2 different actions, cooperating.  Therefore, it is another way of saying the mating of I and Am produces the idea of Being/Me.  Our concept of sexuality is in need of adjustment before we can understand the One Energy that made itself 2. I like to say that 1-Kether, is creating "other" as A-Chokmah and M-Binah, and has realized "I AM", i.e., existence. Take a circle, and twist it into a figure eight, and you now have Male and female, from One.

Chokmah is the second Sephira and thus is the force behind the four Deuces. The Personification of that force is represented in the four Knights/Kings. In other words, Chokmah's will to force, is at its most concentrated and dense elemental form on Earth, such as the most elemental form of electricity which we call lightning.

The Knight/King OF DISKS or Pentacles:
Represents the Lord of the wild and fertile land and as such is the King of the elemental spirits of earth such as the Gnomes. 

The zodiacal attributes to both the Thoth card and SpellCaster's Card, are the last Decan of Leo and the first two Decans of Virgo. Being that the Knight/King of Disks/Pentacles is the most dense manifestation of the Elemental Yod force (Fiery Father), he is the force behind fruition, and  growth but tends to be slow. The Knight's or King's fertility is represented in this card by the use of the Stag antlers on the Helm of the Thoth Knight. The understanding of the mythical animal images of the middle ages, comes in handy here, as the Stag is the beast that ate the serpent, ( received wisdom) and in so doing sheds it's skin, and any illness or old age, just as a serpent does.So to make a long and wonderful story short, the Stag represents the Knight's power to regenerate  as does the organic matter it is a symbol of.

Many of us have seen the Fire of Earth, in its volcanic upheavals; However, how often do we realized that Volcanic upheavals are Earth regenerating itself? Thus, is the Fire of Earth that is the Knight; fleeting yet is also the cycle of rebirth. On Earth, when lightning strikes the Oceans, proteins necessary to life are created.The same fruition is implied by the grain or fruitful plane that his horse is grazing on. Thus he carries a flail, used in grain harvest and his disk/shield is that of solid nutrition.

The Thoth Tarot-The Knight of Disks, represents the fiery part of Nature. Related to the phenomena of earthquakes, mountains and gravitation but also to agriculture and the activity of Earth that produces Life. In this case the heavily Armored Knight has his helmet thrown back, indicating a more placid state rather than violence.
His horse has all its  feet on the ground, rather than the leaping horses of the Other Thoth Knights, and is nibbling the grasses. All of which point towards a solid standing in nutrition, which the Disk/Shield represents,and the Earthly activity of producing Life.This battle King, can now rest and reap the just rewards of his sowing.

 Since, the Knight of Disks or King of Pentacles rules from 21st degree of Leo to the 20th degree of Virgo, he is thus concern greatly with agriculture. This puts Mercury in the constellation of Virgo which implies Intelligence; a cleverness that is very Natural in the animal world. This "Salt of the Earth" personality is very complex but well knit and if their contact with the Earth is a healthy one--such as agriculture provides, or a Medical Doctor or Herbalist, this is usually a well-defined persona. However, if they are forced into a world of technology, or imaginative stretches beyond instinct, they tend to be ill defined. Hence, The Thoth Knight of Disks or SpellCaster's- King of Pentacles represents the physician, the healer, and the farmer. A solidly natural personality who rides through fertile land. He is prosperity, in earthly things.
This fertile nature of the King of Pentacles, is easily seen as a satyr, gold coins, and a Dionysian figure, holding a bunch of ripe grapes.The King of Pentacles, also holds in his hand the Greek Thyrsus wand of Dionysus, showing his connection to the Dionysian mysteries.

To a Hermetic Qaballist, The Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles, represents the most condensed form of the Yod Force, or elemental life force which brings about fruition and growth. The Thoth Knight's Stag horned helmet, and the horned satyr on the King of Pentacles, represents regeneration.

As a Personality, the Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles, represents a mature man who is a healer, a doctor, a good mathematician, and/or crafts-persons who is concerned with quality and security. An older man that others rely on and often confide in, trust and seek advice from. Such a personality tends to be seen as lethargic in tenancy as well as, very stable and dependable.

In Mythology, the Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles, represents Baal the mountain god  who handed down laws from the mountain tops to those who dared to climb up and receive them. He was often seen as stern, authoritarian, heavy, tenacious, reliable and practical.
The Thoth Knight of Disks, of the Qabalistic Thoth deck, is known as the King of Pentacles in many other tarot decks. Traditionally, because the pentacle is the symbol of the ascended man, this card also represents Mastery of Abundance and Prosperity.

On the Thoth Card, he is the harvester, who with threshing tool in hand, is prepared to harvest all that he has cultivated. With the capacity to manifest inner world skills into the outer-world, he is determined to achieve harvest in the areas of health and finances.
The Knight of Disks or King of Pentacles, is also considered the Physical Doctor, the Healer  who is focused on health care, and a concern for body health.

Qabalists know that form must be in constant motion to be animated, yet it also must be stable (gravity) and often reconstruction of the motion of Life requires a destructive element to "de-construct" before reconstruction can be created;  However, destruction must be held to a point of healing rather than destruction for destruction's sake.
Therefore, in the area of health he monitors his diet (horse eating grains) and in the area of finance, (his large coin shield or the pile of gold coins) he creates and protects that which is financially necessary.

The horned helmet, on the Thoth Knight also suggests he is a diagnostician who determines what is necessary in order to manifest abundance. Leo the lion appears on his shield, representing the creative aspects of manifesting harvest.  He is steadfast, reliable, accomplished, the epitome of success, such as the illustration of the Celtic god Cernunos.

All in all, The Knight of Disks, or King of Pentacles is a slow, stalwart, dependable, person of good physical strength and health. If the Reader is using a Celtic Cross pattern in their reading, and this card falls in the 4th position ("What is beneath you") this can mean Earthquakes or mountainous obstacles are to be encountered by the querent. But again, this depends on the surrounding cards (such as in House and Home--the seventh position especially so if a 7 of Disks is there.) otherwise, good health, good food, and a good physician are represented. If the Knight of Disks falls in the 7th position of House and Home, we have a masculine stalwart, dependable, Romantic presence in the querents life. 

Around this fertile SpellCaster's King, all dressed in fecund-green the King rests his hands on his Pentacle Shield. Around him sprouts his harvest, and he is reaping his sown pentacle/coins.
The squirrel, depict his union with the cycles of the Moon and practicality as he stores his harvest for the privation of future winters.

When the Thoth Knight of Disks or the King of Pentacles card is thrown during a divination:

  • It's a good time to concentrate on physical and financial health.
  • Use your diagnostic abilities to manifest harvest in your life.
  • For woman this Knight of Disks, represents the dynamic assertive part of themselves, the inner animus  that wants to sustain abundance in health and fiances.
  • Disks as a suit, represent the earth sign months of Capricorn ( December 21-January 21), Virgo ( August 21-September 21), and Taurus (April 21- May 21) which may indicate particular people with those signs who may assist you in opportunities for harvest in you life.
  • The Querent is entering a period of  Spiritual Fruition.
  • A sense of happy practicality that is reflected in daily life.
  • They are experiencing Self-Knowledge  as steadiness, reliability, and accomplishment in the material world.
  • It implies:
  • a concern for the body and good health.
  • A doctor or herbalist concerned with health.
  • The querent is showing the spirit of fertilization, as joyous practicality, steadfastness, reliability and is an epitome of material success.
  • Generous, courageous but is not prone to seeking adventure.
  • Ordinary activity, in social position, accomplishments, experiencing a success that is relaxed and enjoyed.
  • A mature reliable, dependable, and wise male upon whom others may depend on and with whom they lay their burdens.
  • A dark male, who is both courageous and lethargic in tendencies. However driven in matters of material success. 
  • A good financial provider who understands and likes work knowing it leads to financial security. The querent may be such a person or involved with such a person in their life. The surrounding cards or position in the reading would support this understanding.

The only negative side to this archetypal personality:

  • Is the personality's total dependency on practicality, tending to make the person plodding, lethargic, and often unmovable.
  • A master of physical matters, but rarely understands emotionalism.

This archetypal  personality type:

  • Tends to be heavy, dull and preoccupied with material things.
  • They are laborious and patient but show little intellectual grasp of emotional matters, even on  matters that concern themselves. T
  • his Knights success is mostly instinctual and/or in imitation of Nature.
  • Though he may lack initiative, he has the deep smoldering fire of Earth that produces growth.

In the happiest cases, This Son of Soil's earthy qualities will be directed towards:

  • Romance and material imagination but can be ill defined as over-whelming ambition, superstition, and idle dreaming.
  • Also churlishness, jealousy (dull sort of way) of the Active minds around them which often keeps them stupid in the sense of lack of foresight even in their own affairs.
  • Such an ill dignified personality will find meddling about in petty matters to be their expertise, and they will spoil whatever comes their way.
