The Tarot of Eli- Minor Arcana: The Starman Tarot-7 of Wands & The Thoth Tarot- 7 of Wands-Valour

Qabalistic Tarot Card Comparisons

I will not give.

The Starman Tarot- 7 of Wands, depicts a warrior balance precariously on a pillar ravaged by war. With a vulture in the air and assassins on the ground and the wands acting as if they were laser rifles, he stands posed for battle, ready to defend himself. Chaos rains down upon him, but there is no sense that he is defeated. With a wry smile on his face, he knows the freedom of taking the only action he can. When there is nothing else one can do, one focuses all his force and passion in a "do or die" mode of freedom. He knows that the word freedom comes from the Anglo Saxon, Free Doom, which means, "I choose my own death", something the enslaved cannot do. He stands like a bright star, and looks unperturbed even as his way is blocked and his vision is threatened by destruction. For he calls upon his bright talents, skills, self-confidence and sheer will power to withstand the "slings and arrows", of challenge and obstructionism. In truth, those dark assassins are in for an sore awakening and chaos will be kicked into order by the inner spiritual courage of this one. It is time to see just how tenacious and formidable your Soul really is. When we walk arm in arm with out inner-Sun/Son of the Divine Creative, knowing ourselves, our strength burns with a ferocity that began this Universe. Our Presence is enough to conquer chaos, but being present is the operative term here. The Soul speaks in you ear, telling you that you must stand if you wish to speak to it, for the soul doesn't kneel to weakness. So Stand, Present, stalwart and the "why" and the "how" will take card of itself. Your inner champion, is a spiritual being whose presence drives all things before it. I AM Me shouts the god in you!

When this card is in a divination, it is saying trust yourself, stand tall, and go for it. "Damn the torpedoes, full battle speed ahead"! So to "thine own self be true". It is time to see how unshakeable and formidable you are, when you take a stand for something important, such as your right to be you or the rights of others.

Netzach, the 7th Sephiroth, on the Qabalistic Tree of Life is the conscious energy of Love; as relating to the often misunderstood concept of "God is Love or God is Sex." This misunderstanding of love and sex has to do with the very nature of our culture and that of the "gods" themselves.

In the Western Mysteries, it is said that, "The Gods are the Creations of the Created...the Gods are the emanations of the Group Mind of Races, they are not emanations of Eheieh, the One and the Eternal." {Quoted from the: Qabalistic Tarot, by Robert Wang, page 100)

In essence, this reference to the Group Mind, that the Gods are of Netzach- Victory , our own inner power being given outside image.

This should open your eyes to your power, as the living Suns (Sons and Daughters) of the Kether- The One Eheieh, meaning "I Will Be". You have the power to form potent forces into your own image to serve your needs! Because your Personality begins in the Realm of the Gods, you are a Personal God in your own right! And again; your sexual self is your Spiritual Fiery Nature of your own inner " Will to Be"!

Look, your human body is the Animal God of Earth (and the symbol of Venus in shape). Every single living creature on earth, depends on what the Homo Sapiens Sapiens does! If mankind decides that a species does not or no longer can serve them----------mankind destroys them. Even in our ignorance, we are responsible for our actions, as our ignorance alone will annihilate species and even the World we live on! Only Gods have such power in their domains!

In the Qaballah, you are composed of 10 intelligent beings, in an orgy of loving cooperation are you built. You are Adam Kadmon, the entire Tree of Life. Each of us are a God on every plane of intelligent energy, by inheritance. By acts of individual Valour we claim our inheritance.

These actions of Valour require the Will that is Spirit and the sexual energy of Spirit that drives passion to succeed in the deed. You may note in the people around you, those of low sexual energy, do not perform well in the challenges of life. It is time to realize that the Sexual Self is the Spiritual Self, the Solar Fiery Will that makes you alive---a type of Martial Lion force. This Sexual Self is as Leo and Mars together.

To make the "Above as the Below", i.e. the Great Work, is to realized yourself as sole owner and ruler of your own Animal god-body, and claim it as your "Sacred Place" in Time. Being Divine Energy, You are infinite Space, and within your Divine Unconscious, are the dreams of being. Life is the Lucid Dream of God! Time is the stuff you create forms from, by mixing beginning and end- time- in a cauldron of Thoughts, (Mind) heated by the vibrations of Lust/Passion, and shaped by Will-to-Be; you transform the illusion of being into a sensual reality. This, of course, is a simplistic representation, that is why the Tree of Life is so important to Know. The Tree of Life represents the complexity of how this Created Living Universe is done! By knowing yourself, you can then realized the original data you set aside in downsizing and know how to proceed with the Great Work of You!

WE ARE THE MANY AND THE ONE. Everything I see, is another way to be me!

The 7 of Wands, Valour (Lord of Valour) is attributed to Mars in Leo. The Angels of this Decan are: Mahashiah and Lelahel. Here, we have the influence of Netzach in the World of Pure Spirit (Atziluth).

Mars in Leo not only promotes courage and strength, but also a certainty of a fiery clash. However, victory in this fray is not certain. Thus, Crowley, using the Three Adept Wands of the Golden Dawn, crosses them with a crude fiery club, suggesting a disorganized and disordered battle...one of uncertain results. In short, the army is in disarray, a loss of group- confidence is implied and only individual Valour (Spelled-v-a-l-o-u-r-The Queen's English) will save the day!

When the 7 of Wands-Valour is thrown during a reading, it implies that:

  • The querent is unsure of ideas, and must summon personal bravery and courage to instigate them. 
  • More confidence is needed to ensure victory. Here, responsibility must be taken up as the querent's standard, and they must stand alone, trusting their greater self to handle the most difficult of situations.
  • Here mettle is being tested, and only the inner courage of spirit has the necessary acceleration to push the querent through the line of resistance.
  • This card also shows how valuable you the querent, are to spirit, for if you were "weak" spirit wouldn't be testing your mettle so that you can "remember" your strength.

 

 

If ill defined:

  • Indecision.
  • Ignorance.
  • Discrepancy between instinct and spirit.
