The Tarot of Eli: The Erotic Tarot-7 of Fire & The Thoth Tarot- 7 of Wands-Valour

Qabalistic Tarot Card Comparisons.

The Erotic Tarot-7 of Fire, is a graphic interpretation of Venus gone amok. Knowing that fire represents ardor, here we have depicted ardor in the extreme and the need for individual valour to survive the ordeal. Milo Manara has defined the meaning of this card as:

  • Struggle.
  • Challenge.
  • Argumentation.
  • Facing up to enemies who are stronger.
Here, a hospitalized male is sexually assaulted by the very nurses that are supposed to aid in his healing. This is a graphic illustration of a person who is at their last "nerve" as they are being assaulted by their very own imagined fears. Hence, emotions run a-muck. The only way to solve this, is to summon ones last strength and "damn the torpedo's! Full steam ahead!". Here Courage is the only solution.

The Astrological meaning of this card, is Venus in Leo which emphasizes the need to grow and evolve, to struggle demonstratively , joyfully and imaginatively.

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 where Eros, the love of flesh, is touted as romantic love and usually all that media concentrates on, and of course, that of the gods themselves.

In the 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 Instinctual Mind, that the Gods are of Netzach- Victory. Netzach is ruled by the planet/goddess Venus. Graphically, this is seen as the diagram of the sign of Venus superimposed over the Tree of Life. The Abyssal Womb is the Creatrix of every Sephiroth.

This should open your eyes to your power, as the living Suns (Sons and Daughters) of the One Eheieh- Which is Hebrew for , "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 Nature!

Look, your homo sapiens body is the Animal God of Earth (and the symbol of Venus in shape). This should be easily understood as 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 this goes for cultures to! Even in our ignorance, we are responsible for our actions, as our ignorance alone will annihilate species and even the World we live on! Sadly, only gods have such power in their domains!

In the Qaballah, you are composed of 10 demiurges (small gods) in an orgy of loving cooperation and/or collective. 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 can we claim our inheritance.

These actions of Valour require the Will that is Spirit and the Fiery-sexual energy of Mars 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 by owning the brain and its programing. Therefore, claiming 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 I Am! Time is the stuff you create/measure forms from, by mixing beginning and end- time- in a cauldron of Material, heated by the vibrations of Lust/Passions created by "I Will Be", and shaped by Will-to-Force and Will To Form; 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 of SELF 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---the Intimate Creator!

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

The 7 of Wands, Valor (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!

When the Seven of Wands-Valour or the 7 of Fire, 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.

When ill defined:

  • Indecisiveness.
  • Ignorance,
  • Discrepancy between instinct-(courage) and Spirit (Sense).
