Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot: 8 of Disks- Prudence & The Witches Tarot- Eight of Pentacles.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- 8 of Disks-Prudence & The Witches Tarot- Eight of Pentacles:

Pentacles are Disks in the Thoth Tarot Deck and the 8 of Disks, a card of craftmanship, is called Prudence.

The Eight of Pentacles of the Witches Tarot illustrates a woman dressed in the greens of the Earth Element, diligently polishing a golden pentacle with a soft cloth. Seven golden Pentacles are finished and in the background.
She is obviously an excellent woman of the craft, whose uses the
best materials.
On the table before her, is an open grimoire, a candle, an antler, a human skull and a few clutches of herbs; all part of her Craft.
He is bearded, suggesting many years of patient, diligent hard work at his skill. Perched on her chair back is her Raven familiar. Raven's are often depicted as a witch's and/or seer's companion. This one seems to be watching the room.
The primary meaning of this card seems to be dedication, craftsmanship, and patient skill while the financial rewards of personal effort are not her concern. 



The Thoth Tarot 8 of Disks is called PRUDENCE.  Disks are Pentacles or Coins, in other decks. But contrary to tradition, Disks are an appropriate symbol, something on  which Crowley and I both agree.

Disks must be stabilized by a spinning motion, a circular rotational force, in order to hit their mark. Even the atoms of rocks are spinning in a centrifugal manner, so when representing the earthly powers, the spinning of the Disk, with its internal spin best shows the action of force as form and as one presence in the crystalline light and/or bio-protons.

The 8 of Disks-Prudence, is Hod in Assiah, the Qabalistic material World. The Sun is in Virgo and the angels of this Decan are; Akaiah and Kehethel. 

Virgo is noted to be a very practical sign which tends to cause over concern with small details.
Because this is an 8, any gain that prudence gives is soon dispersed making Prudence no great virtue.

The message in divination, is that of skill, prudence, and over-carefulness about small things, at the expense of the larger. But because Hod is represented by Mercury and Mercury is exalted in Virgo, there is also predilection for intelligent and loving application, involving material matters such as, agriculture, artistic craftsmanship, and engineering. 

The Ruler-ship of the Sun in Virgo suggests birth, as well,thus the disks are arranged in the Gemantic figure Populus (see 777 by A.Crowley). These disks are then shown as flowers of a Great Tree, rooted solidly in fertile lands.

When the 8 of Disks or Pentacles is thrown during a reading:
  • The querent is in a moment of creative birth of 8 weeks or 8 months, requiring the practice of physical caution, carefulness, and prudence.
  •  A type of physical wisdom radiating from a inner place of balance and integration. Making sure that all the bases are covered; every "t" crossed and and every "i" dotted.
  • Making intelligent choices so that the material world more closely conforms with one's needs. 
  • The possibility of turning a talent or skill into a profession.
  • Skill in work with energy and forms, such as fingers working on a manipulative substance.
The negatives would be:
  • Focusing too tightly on the small details and not seeing the big picture!
  • Inability to finish any task due to perfectionism.
