Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-Key 16-The Tower & The Witches Tarot- Key 16- The Tower.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-Key 16-The Tower& The Witches Tarot - Key 16-The Tower:

Due to the limits of time/space, I will continually cover the Thoth Tarot Cards of the Hermetic Qabalah, more thoroughly than I have done in the past blogs. This is an ever-present evolutionary process of seeing deeply into the Arcane. So feel free to scroll back and review the individual Thoth Tarot cards in comparison with different tarot decks, for often more detailed information and insights.

That being said, the Witches Tarot  shows a traditional tarot Key 16, the Tower, with parts relating to the human mind; the Ruby studded crown as the "small ego" and/or self-consciousness, the lightning strike filling the tower with fiery light, is a symbol for "enlightenment", and the people falling, imply that it is out of their control. The ruby, in magical traditions, is considered a stone that intensifies awareness. Thus the Tower in the Witches Tarot of the stresses the perspectives of self being changed by the Higher Self. In Mythology, often the Creative, destroys the institutions of man, with bolts of lightning

The lightning also represents, the Qabalistic- Yods (Essence of  The Fiery Father God) that are the "movement within the motion" (Ojibwa statement) of all life. This internal motion of the external world causes change: the Universal Constant. The resulting fiery fall of Yods (Hebrew for Hand) alights the Tower of Self, the flames represent the deconstruction, God's hand of change. that is necessary for reconstruction. The Male and Female figures are dislodged from their rigid concepts of self, victims of their own stubbornness not to progressively change their self identity. The falling, is a sense of knowing that what we thought we were is illusion and a device of comfort seeking. Therefore,thinking you're right and rigidly resisting another perspective, is just a form of comfort seeking, because if the brain believes that if you are wrong--you feel you could be rejected and/or loose some supposed authority over the moment. In other-words, you feel  uncomfortable. Hence, righteousness, must be deconstructed or one learns nothing. One may see a "Truth" that may be what is right today; However, it often is wrong tomorrow, as the evolution of our own sciences show.

In the Witches Tarot -Key 16- The Tower, the moment of crisis, that brings about the destruction of rigidity, is implied in the lightning flash and the falling persona's stand for a change of perspective, and/or a transformation from one state of mind to another.

The "flow of time", is shown as an eroding building, implying time changes the shape of everything, including the past and the 2nd law of Thermodynamics which states: "All things proceed from order to disorder".

Severity visits us as a "stormy night", because we refuse to change, and that refusal is entropy and will not be favored by the Soul. Thus, salvation falls from the "Heavens" as lightning and wipes out the obsolete ego, in order to allow us further progress. The Love of God, demands we stand in our power, and not kneel to our weakness. That Power, the ability to do work in the moment, requires adaption, change, flexibility and often, complete self reconstruction. Attitudes no longer adequate for the situation shall be swept away by the Spiritual motion within for the material world is transitory but the soul is immortal in its movement of I AM.

THE THOTH TAROT KEY-16-THE TOWER:
In a mundane way, states the same message of that of the Witches Tarot, that inner self, will change outer self, whether it likes it or not. The harder one resists change the more traumatic the required change will be. 

The Thoth Tarot, key 16 is also subtitled "war". For it is under the influence of Mars and attributed to the letter Peh {meaning-Mouth}, referring to Mars. Here  cosmic energy is represented in its most primeval form. Shown is the destruction of the existing material by fire, and/or the old Aeon of Osiris (The Patriarch) being destroyed for the establishment of the New Aeon of Horus, shown as the Great Eye of Horus in the Card. This great "I" is a new identity, that of the Divine Child of The Divine Creative (Christ or Buddha consciousness), coming to the mundane man-made identity of the past. As we all know, new software (identity) requires erasure of the old, before it can operate or up-grade the hardware or in the human body sense, the "wet ware", properly. Thus, we have the crystallize-geometric shapes of man-made identity falling from the tower; a destruction assured, as there are no straight lines in Nature who constructs all things from "spiral energy". Thus flexible and ever changing, Something the righteous man can never be.

The formula for the Tower Card in the Thoth Tarot, is the complete appreciation of all things created. The Self must equally rejoice in not only the smooth and  fertile but also in the rugged and barren. "Right and wrong" are foolish thoughts of the mentally constipated. All things exist, because they are Created to do so. Thus, societies, all based on Ruler definitions of what is Right and What is Wrong, are doomed to destruction. As history has shown, every Nation thinks it is the best, and everyone of them falls. To destroy others in the name of right, will destroy you.
Therefore, at the bottom of this card is shown the destruction of the Old Ridged Military Industrial Aeon by lightning engines of War. When one worships military might as Authority over others and war as change, one is destroyed by that very God (Authority) they worship.  Thus, the jaws of Dis (Roman god of destruction) belch forth the flames of destruction.i.e, purification. Falling from the tower, are those who man the destroyed garrison of the military industrial empire. Again, you may note that they are made of straight lines, i.e. unnatural, thus they represent man-made identity as opposed to the Spiritual Identity.

The Ultimate reality of perfection is No-thing-ness, for only the "Waves" (disturbances or imperfections) in the No-Thing become something. Thus, only out of imperfection can existence exist. We now know that the Divine Creative, who is perfection, is not seeking perfection, for that is about as smart as a fish in the ocean looking for water.  We are all to be unstable, that is imperfect, so that we keep moving forward, seeking balance, experimenting in Self Awareness for that is the "Joy of God"...in other words, to make a long story short. The Divine Creative enjoys being you, ever seeking new Identity. We will always be imperfect, and thank god for that, as that means I shall always progress-------stumbling along to keep may balance in life's constant movement. The secret is to turn that stumbling into a dance of joyous passion!  I for one, know that a diamond, the perfect and absolute stasis (righteousness) of the carbon atom, cannot dance! We must will to live to be, and will to die to become. Thus, the dove, symbolizes the Will to live (the spirit-feminine), and the Lion-Serpent The spirit male) the will to die. 

The fire of Yod (Hebrew for: hand) from which our worn-out self belief is consumed and purified, resurrects us as a rising Phoenix of  momentary purity' Momentary because the trouble with purity, is that once the substance is removed from the furnace that purified it, impurities from the environment soon cling to it and it must, after time, be returned to the furnace to cleanse it. Such is the state of self-identity. Only the pure fiery spirit can cleanse it of all that is unworthy of Divine Self identity. Hence, Life and death are known to the Qabalists as phases of a single element ( Divine-Self-Awareness) that is constantly Real- I-zing itself. In the end, we all must fall under the burden of false identity, to stand as spirit again.

WHEN THE TOWER CARD IS THROWN DURING A DIVINATION:
it implies:

  • A traumatic change will lead to new awareness.
  • the collapse of old beliefs
  • A new self arising from the ashes of the old.
  • End of a relationship; a possible divorce.
  • Freedom and liberation gained only by some cost in comfort.
  • Destruction and transition.
  • Loss of security
  • Deception.
  • Favorable new opportunities from loss.
  • Unsuspected events that demand you must "let go".
  • The breakdown of unhealthy, rigid, or false thought processes.

If ill dignified or reversed:

  • Stagnation
  • Lack of insight.
  • Caught in a negative situation.
  • Oppression and imprisonment.
  • Mental constipation, not allowing for the transformation/ change necessary for spiritual/emotional/ mental growth.
