The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot- 10 of Santería-Earth-Ochosi, represents the Santería Orisha of hunters and animals of the forest, yet the ground this orisha rooms has never known a human footprint. He is the patron of hunters and lives the life of a loner. However, he does maintain a relationship with Oggún and Obatalá. Endowed with exceptional hearing and sight, he hunts game. Ochosi also has magical knowledge of how to use forest herbs. He is also has become the owner of prisons and jails, as he sometimes carries out Obatalá's justice. The symbols of Ochosi are the bow and arrow. He is also synchronized with Saint Sebastian or Saint Norbert.
One calls on Ochosi for help with trials, for a successful hunt, or for knowledge of the ways of the forest. He is also called on for knowledge concerning botanical healing and magic.
When the 10 of Santería is thrown in divination, it implies:
- That which was gathered spoils if not put to use. (Wealth must be shared)
10 of Disks-Wealth:
Prosperity, wealth, success in the world of finances and physical health. The Ten of Disks card is the sum total of the other 35 minor arcana since wealth is a synchronicity of mind, body and soul. This card indicates that by using your communication skills (Mercury symbols on top three coins) and linking them with your healing abilities (the caduceus on the bottom coin) while listening to your inspiration (the star coins) you will be able to manifest abundance (the three Hebrew symbols for abundance coins-bottom center).
The Astrological sign for this card is Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the representative planet for communication and organizational skills. Virgo is the sign of prosperity and abundance manifested in a tangible way.
The 10 of Disks card indicates that all 10 Sephirotic Vessels of your visible and invisible states of energy (The 10 Sephiroth of the Tree of Life) contribute to a balanced flow of healing, communication, and organizational skills all accumulating to active function on the physical plane. Your Spirit, Psyche and Body are manifesting abundance. Obviously this is a card of prosperity and also obviously, it will change, but for now eat, drink and be merry. We should also understand that Wealth becomes prosperity when we spend it as our wealth prospers others and thus ourselves which is a form of communication.
To reiterate, MALKUTH is Earth that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah.
It is the lone Sephiroth of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are 3 Sephira composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Intelligent Energy. It is the Only Sensual Activity, of Creation. Now this may seem otherwise to the Initiate who sensually experiences the "Inner Worlds" of the Tree of Life while meditating, as they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a sensual body, and thus feel the deeper inner experiences. But to travel, the other Sephiroth without a body is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to the One, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "Five Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I". To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than five...as many as thirty-three, but that is not for this blog to describe. Therefore, if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree while you still support a physical body.
The Thoth Deck 10 OF DISKS, is called the 10 of Pentacles or 10 of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world...the Spinning of a Disk , yet Lady Frieda Harris used the image of golden coins to illustrate the disks. However, the Stability of a Discus is in its spin and even atoms spin, as well as, stars, planets and galaxies. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion is spiral.
THE 10 OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah. Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world.
The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This vast materiality is shown on the Thoth 10 of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life, of 10 Sephira, as coins decorated with the various symbols of Mercury.
Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world; it is the Goal Achieved, by the Conscious of the Divine Creative. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the homo sapiens sapiens body, is to establish, the "As above, so below”, i.e. The Great Work in the most condensed of light worlds.
As energy that is Spiral (spirit), we are "everywhere and nowhere" at the very moment of "I"; a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind" body (*Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to immediately discriminate my motion and a supply a deeper intimacy with creation! Being a "god mind";and/or Human (Soul) I am given "freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective chosen and not “natural evolution”.
*HU is Mandarin for God, and man comes from the Hindu word "Manas" which means Mind; Hence, God-Mind which can be known as the intuitive and imaginative mind of the Psyche/Soul.
I find it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually while also evolving via perspective. To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, and a Wealth which mere Ideas do not receive in the vast Mind of the Universal Divine Collective, until now!
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or lustful (The Lust cloud of Goddess- Goddess-bio-protons built us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and sensual! The Divine Creative’s Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy-in-motion to a point in time within the space of I AM, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an error"! Therefore, we have inherited the “I am” that is the Image-maker, who can recreate image by using our "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"!
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria which simply means The First Sephiroth- Kether, The Above, that we bring to the below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal; a bridge between the Creator and Creation! Therefore, we are Lust without the Need of result; being is the result of our Lust and/or love of vigor! Lust being the Divine Frenzy that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! Like I've always have said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life and/or our own Qabalah.
When the 10 of Disks is thrown during a reading, the querent:
- Is assured of physical prosperity and abundance. But being a 10, the end of a cycle, means it may be short lived.
- Is at a physical cross road where supply is stable but boredom has set in and perspective is not stimulating.
- Should be patient for the time for taking security risks is approaching and will soon arrive.
Also when this card is thrown:
- It suggests that in the next 10 weeks or 10 months you will experience opportunities for abundance by utilizing communication, organizational and intuitive skills.
- It also indicates that during this period you will experience a better alignment of abundance on the physical plane where things seem to "go your way".
- This may also indicate that setting up good communication with the Virgo people in your life will profit you (August 21 to September 21) add to your abundance emotionally, physically and mentally.
