The Thoth Tarot-10 of Disks--Wealth, is the Ten of Pentacles in the Witches Tarot.
Illustrated on the Witches Tarot- 10 of Pentacles, a richly dressed couple stand in the back ground watching a magician grandfather entertain their child, under an arching ceiling that supports ten golden Pentacles. Behind the loving couple is a fine turreted home, and large garden. Gardens are magical places in the lore of witch craft.
With the flash of magic, a wand appears in the man's left hand, transferring light to the child's hand.This symbolizes magic abilities or psychic talents that are past down or inherited from one's ancestors. Besides the delighted child and the Magic Grandfather, is a big golden retriever who represents loyalty and companionship.
The Grandfather and child are richly dressed in the colors of the element earth, as that is the element of this card.
The Primary meaning of this card seems to be security in financial affairs and a loving family life. Their is also an implication that with love and inheritance, one's life is wealthy.
The Thoth 10 of Disks-Wealth
To reiterate, MALKUTH is Earth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. Malkuth is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah. It is the lone Sephiroth of this World, making it unusual as in the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are 3 Sephira composing a Triangle; However, Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious. The operative word here is "Completion", meaning this is the Whole Goal of the Original Supernal Triangle.
The world of Assiah, is the Only Sensual Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life while meditating, believing them more important than the "outer world" and as sensual. However, they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a Sensual body, and therefore feel the Unconscious experiences as deeply as outer sensual ones. But to travel the other Sephiroth without a body, is to feel nothing at all and therefore negating discerning experience!
There is only One Sense to the One Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, often shown as the "All Seeing Eye". Hence, all the "Five Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I" and/or the First Identity. To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than five...as many as 33, but that is not for this blog to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree, while your Psyche still supports a physical body. Because of the fact that this 10th Sephirotic world of Earth is the goal of Spirit, the dead do not become enlightened only those who support life here have that privilege.
The Thoth 10 OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world; the spinning of a disk. Where the stability of a discus is in its spin. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion.
THE 10 OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah. Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world. Hence, contrary to many religions, in Qabalah the Material World is not a "bad place to leave", but rather a goal achieved. That is why Qabalah is a philosophy of receiving our divine inheritance and not a religion, that rejects it.
The Astrologers assign Mercury, the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This vast materialism is shown on the Thoth Deck 10 of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life consisting of 10 Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various symbols of Mercury.
Truth being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world for it is the Goal Achieved, by the Collective Unconscious of the Divine Creative. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below",i.e. The Great Work of Life and therefore, become "Wholly" by being the Psyche of Spirit in All Worlds!
As energy that is Spiral (spirit), we are "everywhere and no where" at the very moment of "I"; a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind" operating a sensual body (Hu-Man) the "I Am" has the ability to focus on one "moment" in the time space continuum, becoming not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to discriminate motion as a "Me"! In other words the freedom to chose a movement of identity within a moment, which simply means free to move by perspective. Therefore as a Psyche and a body, we are both the Transmitter and the transmitted.
I Am a Psyche/Soul and find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually within moments of time; moments equal movement in space. To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, a Wealth, that mere Ideas, do not receive in the vast Mind of One Energy...until now! Interestingly, the word I Dea, is a Greek Goddess and hence, the Mother of Form, which in Qabalah is call Binah, the 3rd Sephiroth-Understanding who is known also as "will to form".
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or Lustful (The Lust of the Divine Creative built us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and sensual! The I Am's Self-Awareness built us as a solution to a lack, not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to become "discerning experience", rather than just any thought. Hence, we constantly transform, which tends to nullify entropy and enables intimate creative insight and therefore enabling Creation to deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an error"! We are the "golden child" of the Divine Mind, and call ourselves "Souls", what we really are is the infinite Divine Creative, "down sized" so that "I Am", can have many experiences in a lucid dream of Self. Here, the Self, is "selves", and much can be experienced as individual intimacy inputs billions of experiences.
I am the Image maker, who can recreate image by using my "Child of God" union card, I-Mage-Nation number "10"!
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic Gematria which simply means The First Sephira -1- Kether, the Above known as "I Will Be", who is our "Ancestor", that we bring to the Below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal! Thus, we are Lust without the Need of result! Lust being the Divine Frenzy, that is the rhythmic, vigorous-vibration in all things! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life and design our own "receiving", which is the meaning of the Hebrew world- Qabalah!
