Western Qabalistic and Tantric Tarot Card Comparison

#tarotthothqabalahelitarotstrickingly.com

Netzach, the 7th Sephiroth, on the Qabalistic Tree of Life is the conscious energy of Love and sphere of the 7's . 

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. It is in the sphere of Netzach that these Group Mind Psychic Engines (gods) are created and accessed. All creation is under the "Will to Form" of the Mother Intelligence of the One, Qabalists call Binah, and the influence of the Divine Feminine is graphically shown as of the sign of Venus superimposed over the Tree of Life.

This should open your eyes to your power, as the living Suns (Sons and Daughters) of the One Eheieh-"I Will Be" Divine Creative . You have the power to form potent forces into your own image to serve your needs! Because your personality begins collecting in the realm of the gods, you are a personal I AM in your own right! Here the personality begins motion towards the realm of Malkuth-10th Sephiroth of In-Form-Action.

Netzach, is the place of the "Instinctual Mind" and/or Group minds of species and races. Here, by emotional adoration and worship, images of "gods" become created and exponentially grow by the focused attention/energy-in-motion of Millions. This energy-in-motion is "sex energy", for it comes from the creation of 0=2. Hence, by following the rules of invocation set down by those who control the definition of the gods (priests and priestesses), one can actually access the stored "psychic" energy of a "god" or "goddess" and utilize this energy in their energy work. But the rules (codes) must be followed or disaster can happen, as all stored energy, is capable of being too great of a "charge" for the one using it. Just like installing electricity in your home, you better know how electricity works, or a disaster is certain to happen.

In the beginning, the matriarchal priestesses, created the images and forms of worship of "gods" and "goddesses" for the health and wealth of the people of their culture. This stored "life force", was invoked to assist the people in case of catastrophe, famine, illness or even invasion, as kind of "savings deposit" that "preformed" miracles in time of need.

Once the greedy ambitions of the patriarchy (priesthood of war and/or military industrial empire) learned of these "Psychic Engines", and the energy they contained, they used the process of propaganda (changing the meaning of names from angels to demons etc), to divide and conquer the matriarchy and then slaughtering over 9 million women (Dark ages) accusing them of "Witch Craft" (Witch is short for "wise woman"). Saying that their gods and goddesses were now demons and products of the Devil , etc. Thereby, using the "psychic engines" for their own world shaping ambitions. Energy is neutral, just like electricity. It is subservient to the will of the user. "Bad" user, bad energy. "Good user", good energy. etc.

All history aside, your homo sapiens sapiens body is the Animal God of Earth (and the symbol of Venus and the Ankh in shape). Look around you, every single living creature on earth, depends on what man does! If mankind decides that a species does not or no longer can serve them----------mankind destroys them and if they think the animal species can serve them, they domesticate them. . Even as ignorant gods/goddesses, 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! It is time for you too "Above all things, know thyself" and become the ruler of your own masterpiece-the HuMan.

In the Qaballah, you are composed of 10 Sephirotic Beings/gods, in an collective of loving cooperation. You are a "self" of the Greater Self- Adam Khadmon, the entire Tree of Life. Each of us have an inheritance on every plane of intelligent energy. By acts of individual Valour we claim our inheritance. Out Real Self is the Soul/the 6th Sephiroth of Tiphareth, the central sun/son depicted on the Qabalistic Tree of Life. This Collective of Energy, is the Focus of I AM of Self Aware Energy as "will to be". From here, form becomes, as there is no form above Tiphareth, only aspects of the Will and Energy of the I Am. Hence Netzach is the beginning of the "subconscious" mind that is animal instinct.

These actions of individual Valour require the Will that is Spirit and the 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, as shown on the 7 of Wands-Valor (Valour).

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 by exorcising the man-made ego, claim it as your "Sacred Place" in Time. Being Divine Energy, You are infinite Space, and within your Divine Universal Collective Unconscious, are the dreams of being. Life is the Lucid Dream of the Divine Creative! Time is the stuff you create forms from, by mixing beginning and end and/or time- in a cauldron of I AM, (Mind) heated by the vibrations of Lust/Passion/energy-in-motion, and shaped by Will-to-Be; you transform the illusion of being into a sensual reality and/or intimate self image. 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 Valor) 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 confidence is implied and only individual Valour (Spelled-v-a-l-o-u-r-The Queen's English) will save the day!

The Tarot of Druids- 7 of Mistletoe, is about having the courage to form alliances. Here a Druid, is creating a "tincture" of mistletoe. Mistletoe is the sacred plant to the Druids, as it is believed to be the semen (white berries) of their sun god, Tarantus. The white berries were considered to be antidote to poisons, and a curative of illnesses. Since Mistletoe is toxic, as most of our modern medical narcotics are, one would have to have knowledge of dosage so as not to kill off the patients. Hence, going to a Druid for a mistletoe curative, required some amount of personal courage.

When the 7 of Wands-Valour or the 7 of Mistletoe, 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.
  • Perplexity.
  • Difficult moments.
  • Heroic dedication of personality.
  • Fighting spirit. 

If ill defined by surrounding cards:

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