Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-2 of Wands-Dominion & The Witches Tarot- Two of Wands

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-2 of Wands: Dominion.
The Witches Tarot- Two of Wands and the 2nd Sephiroth- Chokmah/wisdom:

From the Golden Dawn Texts:
 
The four Deuces symbolize the Powers of the King and Queen; first uniting and initiating the Force, but before the Prince and Princess are thoroughly brought into action. Therefore do they generally imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing.
 
To reiterate: the key to all systems, as well as, the Universal Pattern is the only Reality; the Key, we know as Chokmah (Wisdom) on the Tree of Life. Kether is a "not" or a "no-thing", therefore it is not reality. When we cause reality, it is of our beliefs and opinions united, and set into e-motion, so I often call Chokmah the Real for it is not of us, but is the Will of Force before us and as us.  Our beginning is in Chokmah, the idea of I Am, and the Will to Force, all begin there. Thus we are Dreaming ourselves into willful existence and emoting that dream into lucidity.  Confused yet? Well, for now, we know Chokmah to be Will To Force.
 
THE THOTH- 2 OF WANDS-DOMINION:
 
Also called the Lord of Dominion and is assigned the zodiacal attribution of Mars in Aries. Mars being the planet of vitality, energy, and assertion: Aries is the astrological first house symbol of spring, exploration and pioneering.

The Angels of the Decan are Vehooel and Deneyal.


The 2 of Wands represents Chokmah influencing the World of Pure Spirit known as Atziluth. 
Again, we are trying to explain the inexpiable which is the Supernal Triangle of Kether-Chokmah and Binah. This second Sephiroth, Chokmah-Wisdom- is Pure will, without need of result. Which to many is impossible to realize for most of us exercise a faulty will of expectation and expect timed results to reach goals. What many of us don't realize, is that will is the Power behind Spirit, in fact they are inseparable. The Spirit is the Spiraling of Energy into  identity-motions that build microwave dimensions of I AM Me and need no result as "Me" is the result. To make this simple:  Kether, the first Sephiroth, who is Eheieh in Hebrew-meaning "I Will Be", Shouted outloud (Word of God) into the One Energy and/or Spirit, which resulted in whirling sound that united into spiral harmonics of willed being, that eventually became collectives of experience, that became our Souls.

But before frequencies are stimulated into being via "thought waves", there was Will to Force ( Chokmah-the Divine masculine) and then Will to Form (Binah-The Divine Feminine). The Sephiroth are called Beings  that may be Force or may be form, but in fact, a Being to a Qabalist is a "immortal state of Conscious Energy" while we may all know that the living forms we are used to, have a beginning and an end, a Being is "point in time-space", and therefore it has not depth and its dimension is infinite Pi.  In Chokmah is Being. The First Being---The All Father Fiery- Electric who has no form until She the Watery- Magnetic- the third Sephira-Binah "wills him to Form".  Here in the 2 of Wands is that joining of the 2 states of  Will That is "He" and "She", Will to Force and Will to Form, both being masculine in this state as both are "expressing will". The receiver of this expression, would then be receptive-feminine, which is not a sex of a species but the Anima/Spirit (Divine Feminine) and Animus/Soul (The Divine Masculine) within the Psyche of each of us.

The 2 of Wands represents, energy in an unbridled state of Force, for Mars is exalted in Aries, the house of  the season of Spring, as the fiery Mars rules the fiery sign Aries. Here Fire, i.e. Spirit, is pure Primal, and brilliant, warm and bright as both Will to Force and Will to Form. The Dorjes, Tibetan symbols for Thunderbolts, are shown crossed on this card, emphasizing the power and harmony of this card. Will to Force and Will to From are in balance here,  the forceful Dominion of Spirit has become a domain, i.e expression in material form. That domain is shown as the square shape in the center of the crossing Dorjes. A square is four sided, and 4 is the number of physical matter.

 Hence, both aggressive and passive dual force is applied here. As shown on the Witches Tarot- 2 of Wands, as the Auburn haired male and a calico cat. The Calico Cat because of its three colors, is often used as a symbol for the Triple Goddess of Maid, Mother and Crone.  Plus the fact that in one had he holds a flowering Hawthorne wand while another wand rests against the wall; making one active and the other passive.
There is no lust of result in this Pure Will, made of the harmony of "He" and "She" aspects of the One, for manifestation is the original goal and is achieved. The Union in itself is a joy-filled journey. Therefore  there is no "battle of the sexes" where one wishes to rule the relationship over the other.  There is the Union of Wisdom (Chokmah-I) and Understanding (Binah-Am), that gives birth to Knowledge and all creation.

However, the 2 of wands in the Witches tarot is not about being happy with Dominion, but rather broody over one's success and needing to see a new horizon, as shown by the affluent personage gazing out over a harbor. The ships in the harbor represent his hopes and dreams for the future.
  Here is seen a discontent, with outward success that is building and inner unhappiness.Thus, a feeling of being restricted by one's success, as shown by the  surrounding wall. This is the beginning of the transformative process of change.

When the word Harmony is mentioned, one often thinks of peace and quiet bliss, but this is the Violent Destructive Harmonious Force that initiated the "Big Bang"; totally without resistance in and of itself but destructive none the less, for it is "as fire", both consumptive and trans-formative. A Rhythmic intercourse in the Substance of Mind, which we call Spirit.   A Singularity exploded  "outward" to form the building blocks of our Universe and disturbed the peace and balance of absolute stability, so that "change can become a constant"; the One Energy can now Transform according to Self Awareness. For all Self is a duality of "force and form". Therefore, we all live within the One Mind, as many idealized dreams of Self.Within our selves, force is called emotion and form is known as outward manifestation of thought mated with emotion, combined in an ability to do work.

Here Mars in Aries represents that Powerful Gathering of Force to deconstruction of- "I" for the purpose reconstruction as- " I Am". A gathering of Will to Force and Will to Form and or the beginning of Trans-formative Energy. Now the first law of Thermodynamics is in motion [....there is only one energy that cannot be created nor destroyed, only transformed...and transmitted].  One is now in motion, which requires I  transforming to AM, a dual identity of I and the "other"  and/or AM. The Other, is the "Secret Lover", of which all of us have within our own Psyche, for all is Mind and by understanding the difference between other-Am and I, we get Me. Therefore, in each of us is the Anima (Spirit) and Animus (Soul), who intercourse, to create "me". I AM ME is our trinity of self-awareness and therefore the "child" of Psyche.
 
Cupid and Psyche:
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Jump to: navigation, search For other uses, see Cupid and Psyche (disambiguation). Psyche and Amor, also known as Psyche Receiving Cupid's First Kiss (1798), by François Gérard:

a symbolic butterfly hovers over Psyche in a moment of innocence poised before sexual awakening.Cupid and Psyche is a story originally from Metamorphoses (also called The Golden Ass), written in the 2nd Century AD by Lucius Apuleius Madaurensis (or Platonicus). It concerns the overcoming of obstacles to the love between Psyche (/ˈsaɪkiː/, Greek: Ψυχή [pʰsyː.kʰɛ᷄ː], "Soul" or "Breath of Life") and Cupid (Latin Cupido, "Desire") or Amor ("Love", Greek Eros ’′Ερως), and their ultimate union in a sacred marriage. Although the only extended narrative from antiquity is that of Apuleius, Eros and Psyche appear in Greek art as early as the 4th century BC. The story's Neoplatonic elements and allusions to mystery religions accommodate multiple interpretations, and it has been analyzed as an allegory and in light of folktale, Märchen or fairy tale, and myth.Since the rediscovery of Apuleius's novel in the Renaissance, the reception of Cupid and Psyche in the classical tradition has been extensive. The story has been retold in poetry, drama, and opera, and depicted widely in painting, sculpture, and even wallpaper. Psyche's Roman name through direct translation is Anima.
Hence, the 2 of wands is representative of that Union of Anima and Animus.

Looking at the Qabalistic Tree of Life, we know the 2's to be Chokma --the Second Sephiroth of the Supernal Triangle.
This is Pure Will, independent of any given object. Will without lust of result that is Will without the "to be" that causes manifestation. This is the Powerful Will that the Magi can  channel into ritual manifestation, but only if the Magi has taken care of preparation so there is  no lust for result in their psyche, yet still requiring the Union with a Feminine counterpart so that the rationale and the imagination are in a state of wedlock.

Mars, the planet of War, is in its own sign Aries, the first of signs, and therefore represents Energy initiating a current of Force, but a "Point A to Point B", and/or Polarity is required or currents of force, can't flow. Therefore, the Thoth 2 of Wands show the Dorjes, "Currents of Electrical Force" and/or thunderbolts, with a Feminine-Ka Dro Ma (Tibetan Angels) head on one end and a phallic shaped, twin serpent wrapped-spear head on the other end, showing both male and female "sex" (serpent) force interaction.The horse heads on the Khadroma-crowns symbolize spiritual power and the serpents at the base of the arrow heads, represent the regenerative power (sex force)  and healing that comes from this power balance. 

As Stated: The Heads of the Djores, are Tibetan Kha-dro-Ma which are considered Tibetan Angels or Demons, depending if you are frightened of the Initiating Force or joyously accepting the necessary destructive/constructive nature of this Current of Force.  Studying the Tibetan concept of the Kha-dro-Ma gives even greater insight into this Cards Force; However, the Tibetans are very secretive about the Kha-dro and their state of Ma (As in Kali Ma), will only state adamantly that they are the "highest state of Feminine" in the Universe and compose about 10,000 Myriads in number. [Illustrated is a Kha-Dro-Ma, that I hurriedly sketched, who has visited me from time to time.  She seems to be the origin of the "serpent headed" woman of mythology and has given me great loving guidance throughout my magical life.]

Here, Crowley promotes an  interesting illustration of the Tibetan Dorjes  (Thunderbolts) crossed, but crowned with the Angelic Tibetan Kha-dro-ma (Daughters of Kali) suggesting that these thunderbolts are more destructive than constructive. Few of us remember that destruction is the first part of the creative process, as two must come together and annihilate separateness, forming "something else". Even the Universe as The Singularity (I), destroyed itself to become existence as "other" and/or I AM, in the Big Bang. To tell the Truth, any great accumulation of energy by any form, be it psyche or physical, will destroy its lower frequency forms and if done properly, a phoenix will arise from the excess of flame as a formed harmonic of higher frequency. Such as the All Seeing "I", that created "Other" as "another way to be I", and by understanding (3rd Sephiroth-Binah) the difference between I and Am, created the "Child", "Me", which is Forms identity.

Energy, is oppressed in forms; a necessary oppression to be sure, but sill in each of us, the energy fights to join with the Totality. Hence, invoking more of the One Energy, changes the form's Time/Space, to more expansive and energetic boundaries than before. Hence, the one who invokes is often accused of "insanity" because their reality (boundaries) has changed from the normal- form- boundaries of animal survival mind to the Imagination of the Immortal. That expansive perspective usually makes both genius and insanity seem to be one. This is usually because the mundane form is bound by a lesser perspective of self and fears the unknown and/or Greater Self. While, the Psyche is created from the "other side of the Mirror", and/or the Quantum side of the Atomic Universe. Hence, the "Free Mind" is of the Uncertainty Principle, and creates by thought, not "laws". Therefore, we know the Divine Creative is "Uncertain" of its identity, hence, creating itself anyway it can imagine. Which describes our dominion to a "T". We have complete and absolute dominion over the Atomic Universe, as we observe it-it becomes. Hence, we rule the Microcosm, because we are of the Quantum Self as it's offspring and inheritors. Each of our Psyche's sit upon the throne of imagination, the Divine Creative's mind and therefore, inherit dominion over self-image.

Often, in those who seek "enlightenment" (Thunderbolts of energy---"The flow is in the Know") find that their attempts at expanding bring fear and repulsion to the brain,  which are the primary animal responses blamed on the " small-ego" as it fears its own  smaller energy construct of "self" being stressed to the point of release and/or, destruction of its fear/survival based identity.  But then with understanding of the complete plan, as Qabalah study is wont to do, the student-brain  willingly surrenders, rejoices and co-operates in the "Purifying Fire" of The Greater Ego, of which Saints are often accused of entering. Some call this "Holy Spirit", what it is in reality, is our whole Self-The Tree of Life, manifested on earth. Since Malkuth is done, we have achieved our goals, and can now experiment with our identity in Crystalline light, rather than the pure Photon Self that we are as "Children of the Solar Galactic Core", the Photon Logos that this galaxy is built around. This more "crystallized" light gives us  intimate sensation and therefore, intimacy with creation. This intimacy maybe called "entertainment"(happiness, joy, sorrow, sadness, love etc.) but also gives us the ability to see error on a moment by moment basis.With the Creative Mind, we can also then correct that error, then and there. The ability to "see error and correct it", is called Wisdom.  This process halts entropy's absolute destruction of creation.


Therefore, the 2 of Wands represents  Chokma in the suit of Fire. This is pure will; will in its most exalted form. Crowley called this card "...will unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every-way perfect". [Al. I.44]. Hence, Personal Unified sacred power.

When the 2 of Wands card is thrown, it represents you coming into your own power from your deep spiritual center that is a balance of Male electric (the rods) and female magnetic (The Khadroma-Tibetan angels- heads on the Dorjes and/or the Feminine form, standing on the Serpent wands of the Masculine force).

When the Two of Wands- and 2 of Wands-Dominion, is thrown during a reading:
 
  • The querent is experiencing the will to move forward in a new direction, from a place of undaunted will, of full power, and balanced dominion.
  • Contemplating new ideas without lust of result.
  • What once was unfocused energy is now becoming clear and polarized.
  • Affirming a new self identity.
  • A partnership of two powers, opposite yet reflecting each other.
  • The Self confidence that only comes from affirming and approving of one's self.
  • A senses of accomplishment without any feeling of satisfaction.
  • In the next two weeks, or two months, you will have the energy, like Mars, to move in new directions: like Aries, from a place of integration, balance, harmony and spiritual power.
  • You have attained a certain amount of integral balance, harmony and dominion within, that enables you to expand and liberate your life from past imbalances.
  • Illumination.

  • When thrown in a reading, the 2 of Wands is also: considered to be influence over another.
  •  Dominion, boldness, courage, fierceness, shamelessness, revenge, resolution, generous, proud, sensitive, ambitious.
  • Restless, ruthless, turbulent, and many other descriptions of a Willful  Current of Force being applied to a situation.
  • This card tends to be sagacious yet can be unforgiving and obstinate according to dignity.
  • The Two of Wands is Focused Will and Fiery Motion, in a balance that will destroy the issue focused on to rebuild a new form.
  • Very powerful card of Motion and change by a destructive means, which is often seen in the world of Atoms and molecules forged by the massive forces of the Stars. When this card shows up in a reading the Will of Spirit is involved...something of which the body is unable to stop.
  • The querent is being overcome by boldness. courage, fierceness, and Shamelessness.
  • Generous and proud, but also a certain amount of revenge, and resolution.
  • There is a suggestion of turbulent energy, that seems to be beyond the "ego's" ability to control but it can also become sagacious, yet unforgiving and obstinate.  
  • It is because it Is.....and the persona becomes baffled by the power unleashed without a "lust for result". 
  • Centering only on the love within, is the solution to this immense Power of Will, that is all around us, but of what we have so little contact with as we have "given ourselves" to the ambition of "others".....and believe we have little, if any "Will Power".
  • This card is suggesting that the Spirit (Will) is beginning to rebel against its predisposed  boundaries...come "Hell or High Water"!
