The Druid Craft Tarot, shows a young girl contemplating a golden pentacle, rather than the Traditional depiction of a Young pregnant mother. Here we are shown the barren landscape of winter's end and Spring's beginning. Since, the traditional mythology, always has shown the coming of Spring as Persephone rising from the Underworld of Hades. What we see here is a very young Spring.
The Thoth Tarot-Princess of Disks, is about Mastery of Creativity and Birth of New Forms. She is the pregnant one. As you may have gleamed by now, all these cards represent states of conscious energy that weave a pattern of energy conscious in the material world---as the core of personalities; 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 and first house (represented by the Aries horns on her head) and the serpent transforming into an ermine cape, represents her ancient earthly passion to create.
Her lighted Diamond staff, shows her desire to give birth to new forms that are in alignment with who she is and the "I Will Be" of Kether. 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.
Winter is shown on the Thoth Deck Princess of Disks as the ermine cape becomes an implication of snow on the ground, amid winter trees bereft of leaves.
When this card is thrown, for male or female, this card represents the: creative part of the Earth anima within the organic form.
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. This creative idea and the desire to manifest it, has been gestating with in your nature for some time. 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.
On the brink of transformation, the Princess of Disks is the earthly part of Earth. Brooding in wonder, she is strong and beautiful while pregnant with the secret wonder of the future.
Skry 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.
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/Gaea who is represented in the tarot as the Queen of Disks.
Now this may sound impossible to us of the "Divide and conquer" military industrial complex, 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 Tarot 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.
There is the new doctrine of Tetragrammaton, in Western Magic, 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," The Name is not a dead symbol, but a whirling Sphere of Dvina Action.
The center of the Thoth Deck 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 to equilibrate the seven sevens adding up to 156 (Babalon-The Scarlett woman.) 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.
This central cypher 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-- (This card is a research and meditative must for the Student of Gnosis.)
About this whirling Disk are its six wings (6 is the number of the Sun) The Thoth Tarot 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.
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.
