The Dreams of Gaia- 11. Heaven/Earth, is comparable to the Thoth Princess of Disks. This card is about balancing and realignment and it suggests that the time is now, for centering and achieving a state of harmony with the world around you by banishing the illusion of separation. We are Life, and all Life, is united in a collective we call "living".Trees breath for us, as they exhale oxygen, we breath for the trees as we exhale carbon dioxide, for that is their inhale. The insects work for the earth, as do the animals, plants, bacteria and we work for all of the Super Organism that they make up, the Organic Material that we operate as our Homo Sapiens Sapiens form. No one, can live without the other. Everything is a Collective, a mirrored image of the Universal Collective Unconscious, as all is Mind.
You are a mirrored image of the All. You are a Spirit-Energy Being who forms its ideas out of Light. This includes the Homo Sapiens Sapiens and all of earth, for they are of the dust of Stars. "I Am the Light", not, "I seek the light". You entire Auric Field is made of cooperative Light-Forms/Bodies of light. Invisible to eyes that see only reflected light, but not invisible to the "I".
- -The Superconscious is the Universal Collective Unconscious, of which we all owe our "I" to.
- -The Causal body, the part of the Mind we call the I AM, the mind of cause.
- The Mental Body, the Mind of consciousness.
- -The Emotional body, the Will to Force into manifestation.
- This light body, is called the Astral Body, it is the formative mind, where dreams of Self take form.
- is the Pranic Body, this is the "Life force of Breath", and or the light body that keeps the physical body alive.
- - is the Etheric Body, a golden grid that surrounds your body as an enclosure, to keep you atoms in place.
- The Light Body that is the most concentrated of all, it is the Physical Form/Homo Sapiens Sapiens body. Yes, it is made of light concentrated by the Force of the Other Light Bodies that surround it. You are the photons that flow through the body, as Chakras represent this inward flow; as "life" and the animator of the form, you are the microwaves of Spirit (serpent/spiral forces) you have formed as the Evolution of Light as Self. Therefore, you are not of the body, it is "Of you" and represents the "Manifested information" of the Light Self-Awareness. You are all Stars/Suns/Light , the One Energy that is aware of Itself as I AM....We are not separated, we are the Rainbow Beings, who operate the Manifested Divine Creatives self awareness as "I AM ME".
It all began as "I Will Be", called Eheieh in Hebrew, which means "I Will Be". In Western Qabalah, Eheieh is Kether the O that equals 2 ; (I) Chokmah-Will to Force-Masculine, (Am) Binah-Will to Form-Feminine. As one views each Sephiroth down the Tree of Life, they will see the invisible Sephiroth Daath, (shown here) for it represents the birthplace of the Knowledge of Self, which is unseen in the Unconscious, yet it is the "dreams" of I AM.From Daath down we see Self Awareness become more and more advanced/condensed. Until we become yet another state of Self, called Malkuth-Physical Form, the most condensed energy of all. I Am the Light, who operates Matter. Therefore, I AM the Light that makes the alive. Living light, is what I Am. Therefore, the Body is the Image of the Divine Creative and/or God.
Now I know that this is not the way the Patriarchy taught you to think, but in Qabalistic and Western Tarot, the way the "commonly trained" think is called "upside down" thinking (shown as an upside down pentagram). Instead of standing on Earth as the "Supreme Being", with your Mind Connected to the Superconscious, you are taught to place your head in the sand of Earth and stick your feet up into the Tree/ a "hanged man". Now you think, you are a product of the body, a persona (brain programming) that thinks it is the "real person" and/or Psyche. The Soul, "Sun of Light", is the Real Person/Psyche, the personality is nothing but a "mask" and/or a story that we tell our-self.
The Patriarchy is the "Group Mind" that has been developed by those who enslave others to their vision/dreams and is called "Civilization". We know the manifested patriarchy, as the "few who rule the many" and/or the top 1%. In fact, in Western Qabalah, this is called the 1% world. The word ruler, means "those who control definition", i.e., the "enslavers". Hence, you are a definition controlled by "others". We call this "peer pressure". No matter what you call it, it is an illusion force upon your brain as a "truth", made of words. The Brain is of the Earth, as it is a "organic intelligence" based on the earth collective of "worker bees" and not the Divine Intelligence that has evolved as Self-Awareness known as the universal I AM.
Contrary to popular belief (belief comes from indoctrination and is the antithesis of knowledge) you can't be identified by words-for these are patriarchy made and used as propaganda. You are the creator of identity, the I AM, not the stupidity of the slave world that must "earn a definition". The Patriarchy is the "divide and conquer" paradigm. Making you believe you are separated from Life (you must earn a living) from Spirit, (seeking spirituality) and from Mind, (Intelligence is learned) making you forget your Divinity which is the Universal Collective Unconscious, and instead, now you must "seek enlightenment". Funny thing that, you are the Light! So exorcise the demon within, the programming of the Patriarch, by saying,: I Am Spirit, I Am Life, I Am Mind, and I operate a physical form as "in-Form-ation". Self-Awareness requires experience, and the Physical world is the World where we experience our "dreams of Self", as a I AM Me. Your Soul's Dreams of Self, not somebody else's! Let us all stand up and say with guttural power: I Am the Will, I Am the Way, I Am the Wealth and I own the Day! Go ahead, do it now, be not afraid to Know thyself!
Hence the Dreams of Gaia 11 of Earth card reminds us that we are Spirit/Light/Intelligent Suns, who has established an Avatar on Earth, so that we can experience our dreams of Self by "reflecting our light as Self on the mirror of matter". For experience, is where knowledge, wisdom and evolutionary thought come from. You came to experience Self, so that you could be the "best you", a collective of experience, that must experience to know. Therefore, there are no Greater Selves than Self, only lesser personalities, or greater personalities and personalities are only a story the Soul/Psyche tells itself. Hence, there are tragic stories/personalities, or Powerful creative stories/personalities. The personality is supposed to become a "Mercury" a messenger of the gods (Sephiroth on the Tree of Life) and not a animal slave to a monetary god/ which is the story the Patriarchy tells you!
By disconnecting/separating you from your Soul's inner guidance, by listening to an outside authority, you have been separated from your "God Self-Awareness" and as a personality, you are no longer a messenger of the gods, but animal story of domestication. Well, partner, that ain't the Real You! The homo sapiens sapiens is the new "House of God" for God/The Divine Creative makes Alive/ and/or Lucid dreams of Self. You are the House/Temple represented as the letter Beth in Hebrew, which is the Magus card in Tarot. Therefore, you are the manifested Will of God/Kether/Spirit. Be the God in the House! and not a man-made/patriarch- made seeker of the right house/temple in which to "find god". I AM is not lost, it lives well and good as a Me! I Don't seek enlightenment, I Am the Light who creates "enfleshenment" for the purpose of Truth! Truth is made manifest, not a word, not a belief, but the Knowledge of I AM as In Form Action!
Above all things, Know thyself!
The Self, is depicted on the Dreams of Gaia 11 of Earth card. All that is both he-male and she-male, animal, plant, and the wealth of man and the scrolls of experienced knowledge, are YOU> Self. I Am is the All that makes an "Other" and Other, is all that I manifest as Myself. All is "another way to be I AM". Hence we all belong to each other, but not to a Patriarchy of Enslaved Minds who believe it is all about survival-Survival being "get yours by competition with others". A greatest of lies, For by, Loving one another as yourself keeps us all connected to the Universal Collective Unconscious, the Divine Creative who is the Lover of its most Beloved, the "other". Hence, To be as the Divine, The I Am loves the Me and the Me should love the I Am. Therefore, do what you love, and love what you are doing and love those you are doing it with!
When thrown in a divination, the 11 of Earth implies:
- Separation is an illusion.
- Center and align.
- Spiritual Being as a manifested form.
- Nature is Spirit's dwelling.
- Experience yourself as life, and become more aware by experience.
- Symbiotic relationships.
- The ordinary is magical and the magical is ordinary.
- Harm the earth and you harm humanity.
The Thoth Princess of Disks, is about Mastery of Creativity and Birth of New Forms. She is the pregnant one, the character of psyche that builds new ideas. As you may have gleamed by now, all these cards represent states of unconscious energy that weave a pattern of energy conscious in the material world---as you!
The Greeks called this state of consciousness Persephone, who enters Hades, every winter and escapes Hades and manifests on Earth every spring. She is the pioneering nature of fertility (represented by the Aries horns on her head) and the serpent transforming into an ermine cape, represents her ancient earthly passion to create and her arising out of the last snow of winter. Winter is shown on the Thoth Princess of Disks as the ermine cape becomes an implication of snow on the ground, amid winter trees bereft of leaves.
Her lighted crystal staff, shows her desire to give birth to new forms that are in alignment with who she is. Her determination to manifest the organic balanced harvest is shown by the pedestal of grains that she is standing on.
The balanced union of female magnetic and male electric forces are represented in the yin/yang center of the lotus blossom which show the creative approaches to Motherhood issues or issues surrounding her own mother.
As Souls/Psyche, we are all Androgyny, (female side of brain and male side of the brain) and both sexes can become pregnant with desire and creative ideas. We pick the sex of the body, as the one that is most aligned to our self-awareness purpose. This creative idea and the desire to manifest it, has been gestating with in your nature for some time.
On the brink of transformation, the Princess of Disks represents the earthly part of Earth. Brooding in wonder, she is strong and beautiful while pregnant with the secret wonder of the future.
This lovely Priestess of Demeter, wears the crest of the Ram and in her right hand, a scepter descending into the Earth, where its head becomes a diamond. To Qabalists, the Diamond is the Precious Stone of Kether (The Highest and purest Light) and symbolizes the Purest Light formed in Matter in the “diamond form of as above-so below".
As would Freya, (Norse Grove Goddess) she stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat sheaf which is a symbol for Demeter. But she is not alone. Contrary to the sexism of divisionism thought, she is never without He and He is never without She. Therefore, she holds in her left hand a disk which bears the Chinese ideogram denoting the twin spiral force of Goddess/God (the Divine Creative), in equilibrium; from this is born the Rose of Isis (Rose-Mari), the Great Fertile Mother of the Nile delta.
The characteristics of the Princess of Disks personality are more numerous than a one hopes to enumerate from words, for she is the Ultimate in Womanhood and has all the characteristics of the "Womb with a View", i.e., the Mother of all Forms. She contains all the characteristics of womb-man and it depends on the influences whether she is subject to “one or the other" of these male or female traits that manifest as action. However, this is not a scattering of energy, rather whatever trait she acts on, it is pure and focused, and life changing. To the shallow (those afraid of their emotional depth), she is bewildering inconsistency; to the centered, she is a "Powerful Moment" of Beauty. She is both nourishing and vitalizing.
The Princesses and the Aces.
Scry this Princess of Disks card and know, it’s great to be you! In your uniqueness you are united with us all. The Princesses of any suit are the “womb intelligence” that carries the seed of the element they represent thus; the Princesses are the pro-generators of the Aces, as they sit upon the throne of the Great Mother, and rule elements in her name.
The Ace of Disks, is the seed of the Energy Transformation that we call Earth and Earth is ruled by the Princesses, each in their own section of the Northern quadrant. The knowledge of the new Aeon of Horus, dispels the archaic concept of Earth as an evil, passive, immobile, even dead element. Rather, Earth is a transformation of Intelligent Energy Conscious that many moderns call Gaia who is represented in the tarot as the Queen of Disks.
Now this may all be new to us of the "Divide and conquer" military industrial complex patriarchy, but as I tour my Soul, I find a Perspective-Personality, of Native American manifestation, who named this Intelligent Force of Earth, Grandmother River. This "primitive" personality, as did the Alchemists, seemed to understand that the “Water and Sun" union, transformed soil into living forms, long before our scientist "discovered" this very concept in the study of Thermo-dynamics.
The Thoth Deck Ace of Disks, is invariably linked to the Princess of Disks and is a styled rendition of a Molecule, (the union of atoms) show in the back ground of the Emerald Green of the Aeon of Isis (Grandmother River). This Emerald Green is of the King-Scale color decided upon by the Egyptian Hierophants. However, this green is not the original vegetable green of Isis but that of the “emerald-spring green" of the new Aeon following the resurrection of Osiris as Horus. Nor are the disks considered to be the dead chemistry of coins; rather they are the whirling emblems of Star, Planets, and atoms etc., all of which are whirling spheres, as we are whirling Photons/Solar Psyche, that empower the brain and nerves of the Homo Sapiens Sapiens.
There is the new doctrine of Tetragrammaton where He' --the final earthly component, and the Daughter (Princess), is set upon the Throne of the Mother, to awaken the Eld of the All-Father. In the words of Zoroaster, Tetragrammaton is a “rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud," force. The Name is not a dead symbol, but a whirling Sphere of Divine Action, the I AM that through its actions creates a "Me"/ a mirror image of the I Am.
The center of the Thoth Ace of Disks, is a complicate Hieroglyph representing the "the chosen priest- and apostle of infinite space" and/or the "prince-priest the Beast." (Liber AL. I.15.). In the center of all is yet another form of Tetragrammaton, the Phallus, showing Sol and Luna, with the number 666 inscribed, as the "beast" (Animal mind) and that is called "husband" by the Princess. Now showing all this is far too redundant as many great minds have already delved deeply into the Phenomena that is the Princess of Disks, so I recommend that you get the Book of Thoth, and scroll to pages 210-212 for further information and references.
The central cipher is enclosed in a Heptagram that is interlaced with Pentagons whose sides are extended forming a wheel of 10 spokes, bounded by a Decagon encompassed in a circular band with the inscribed name of ***TO META EHPION. The words are classical Greek, but of a slightly ungrammatical kind, leaving the meaning ambiguous unless you change the word ehpion to its common spelling. Hence, the word Ehpion, is really the misspelling of the common spelling of Ophion and refers to "The Serpent Gate to meta Ophion".
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
This article is about a figure in Greek mythology. For the genus of parasitic wasps, see Ophioninae.Greek deities
- Primordial deities
- Titans and Olympians
- Chthonic deities
- Mycenaean deities
- Personified concepts
- Other deities
In some versions of Greek mythology, Ophion (/oʊˈfaɪən/; Greek: Ὀφίων "serpent"; gen.: Ὀφίωνος), also called Ophioneus (Ὀφιονεύς) ruled the world with Eurynome before the two of them were cast down by Cronus and Rhea.Mythology
Pherecydes of Syros's Heptamychia is the first attested mention of Ophion.
The story was apparently popular in Orphic poetry, of which only fragments survive.
- "He sang how the earth, the heaven and the sea, once mingled together in one form, after deadly strife were separated each from other; and how the stars and the moon and the paths of the sun ever keep their fixed place in the sky; and how the mountains rose, and how the resounding rivers with their nymphs came into being and all creeping things. And he sang how first of all Ophion and Eurynome, daughter of Oceanus, held the sway of snowy Olympus, and how through strength of arm one yielded his prerogative to Cronos and the other to Rhea, and how they fell into the waves of Oceanus; but the other two meanwhile ruled over the blessed Titan-gods, while Zeus, still a child and with the thoughts of a child, dwelt in the Dictaean cave; and the earthborn Cyclopes had not yet armed him with the bolt, with thunder and lightning; for these things give renown to Zeus."
Nonnus in his Dionysiaca has Hera say (8.158f):
- I will go to the uttermost bounds of Oceanus and share the hearth of primeval Tethys; thence I will pass to the house of Harmonia and abide with Ophion.
Harmonia here is probably an error in the text for Eurynome. Ophion is mentioned again by Nonnus (12.43):
- Beside the oracular wall she saw the first tablet, old as the infinite past, containing all the things in one: upon it was all that Ophion lord paramount had done, all that ancient Cronus accomplished.
We also have fragments of the writings of the early philosopher Pherecydes of Syros (6th century B.C.E.), who devised a myth or legend in which powers known as Zas and Chronos ("Time") and Chthonie ("Of the Earth") existed from the beginning and in which Chronos creates the universe. Some fragments of this work mention a birth of Ophioneus and a battle of the gods between Cronus (not Chronos) on one side and Ophioneus and his children on the other in which an agreement is made that whoever pushes the other side into Ogenos will lose and the winner will hold heaven.edit]
Further information: Pelasgian creation myth
Robert Graves in his book The Greek Myths imaginatively reconstructs a Pelasgian creation myth involving Ophion as a serpent created by a supreme goddess called Eurynome dancing on the waves. She is fertilized by the serpent and in the form of a dove lays an egg on the waters about which Ophion entwines until it hatches and the world issues forth. Then Ophion and Eurynome dwell on Mt. Olympus until Ophion boasts that he made the world alone. Eurynome, as punishment, kicked out his teeth and banished him to the underworld. From Ophion's teeth sprang Pelasgus who taught man all the arts and crafts.
This particular interpretation shares many similarities with some Gnostic traditions, with the Demiurge, often represented in the form of a serpent (as with Yaldabaoth), claiming to have created the world alone despite the assistance of others - often Sophia, who is associated with doves through the Holy Spirit.
About this whirling Disk are its six wings (6 is the number of the Sun) The Thoth Deck Ace of Disks is the glyph of Earth as understood in the new Aeon of Horus. Sol and Terra are known as living beings, one's constant companions in a Universe of Pure Joy.
As I have stated, the Princess of disks
represents the earthly part of Earth. This Princess is strong and beautiful and impregnated with a secret wonder. She is Sophia, an embodiment of Earthly Wisdom.
To repeat; She is Crested with the head of a ram (another symbol for Aries, Mars, The Lightning Lord, and/or the male electric force, the Sun) signifying a head full of fertile ideas, She holds a diamond (precious stone of Kether) tipped scepter, into the earth, which symbolizes the birth of the Highest- Purest light in the deepest darkest elements. What the Ace of Disks professes, she makes manifest.
As would a priestess of Freya or Demeter, she stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat-sheaf, which is the sigil of the Priestess of Demeter. She is pregnant with the secret of the future. ...The bearer of spring; a spring that frees us from the "dark horrors of winters past". The fertile Consciousness of Horus rather than the dead militaristic and slavery- obsessed consciousness of Osiris.
The disk she bears, is a Chinese idiom denoting the twin spiral force of the universe in equilibrium giving birth to the Rose of Isis, the Great Fertile Mother. When the Ace of Disks (Pentacles in other decks) is thrown during a reading, the querent is in a years’ time, experiencing material gain, through labor. Power, wealth etc. The Ace of Disks represent materiality in all senses , grounded, practical and organized. By careful comparison, the student can see how the Princess of a Suit, is Married to the Ace-Seed of an Elemental force.This is the Lady of Rebirth and Renewal and to understand the Depth of the Ultimate Womb---is to meditate long and hard on this card, and to read the Goddess Myths with the eye (I) of the soul. In this world, where love is a profit sharing endeavor, it is hard for most of us to believe that "Love built Me to be Itself"----Love is Now and fears no future. But the truth is, "God (Creation) is Love made manifest" and we are the image of Love made manifest by the Womb of the Goddess!
If the Princess of Disks card shows up in a reading, it is best said:
- That rebirth is apparent from past defeat.
- Or that a new love is blooming in your life.
- It represents a young woman with rich brown or red- brown hair and dark eyes, she is generous, kind, diligent, benevolent, careful and endowed with persevering courage.
- She may also be pregnant with child or birthing ideas, projects, identity and self-aspects.
- She or he is on the Brink of Transformation and Revelation.
- She or he may also have a concentrated desire to learn, and is applying her/his fertile mind to scholarly pursuits.
- For a woman, this card can represent the need to resolve motherhood issues.
- For male and female, this card can represent the need to resolve or restructure relationship issues with Aries or Scorpio people in your life. (Aries-March 21 -April 21) (Scorpio: October 21-November 21).
- Due to the very nature of the Princess of Disks "tunnel focus" on creation, this card can warn us of the dangers of becoming so focused on one thing, that we cannot enjoy the life all around us.
- When this card is thrown, for male or female, this card represents the: creative part of the Earth anima within the organic form.
- The Princess of Disks, represents an essential and valuable impulse that will bear fruit in the long run.
- For the Querent, she is the challenge to open up, to let oneself become animated and inspired in order to achieve the greatest profit from the opportunity offered.
If ill-defined by surrounding cards:
- She or he becomes wasteful and prodigal.
