The Tarot of Eli: The Running Press Tarot- 7 of Wands & The Thoth Tarot- 7 of Wands-Valour

Qabalistic Tarot Card Comparisons.

The Running Press Tarot, depicts a cat, with claws out in defensive mode, being attacked by 7 wands. The message implied by this image, would be that of faith overcomes your current obstacles. You must consider the consequences of your action, but act swiftly as you have the power to accomplish your goals.

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 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, implies that the gods are of Netzach, the 7th Sephiroth which is the intellect of instincts and feelings. Hence, the gods are those potent forces we have shaped in our own image, to serve our needs. There is nothing but us, Spirit-Mind-Body, the as above so below of the Emerald Tablets and of the Qabalah. Once one realizes that Dogma is just animal instincts of the Survival Mind trying to appease "unseen powers", which today are being revealed by our scientific investigations, should open one's eyes to our power, as the living Suns (Sons and Daughters) of the One Eheieh- who is Kether- the One Energy. Eheieh, translates to, "I Will Be". You therefore, have the power to form potent forces into your own image to serve your needs! Will to Force, is "e-motional force", Will to Form is "manifesting force". Because your Personality begins in the Realm of the gods, you are a Personal god in your own right; a Demi-Urge and/or an "I AM"! We are at once the many and the One! We all enjoy the One Energy that can't be created nor destroyed, only transformed, as many transformational "I" sights.

Hence, the manner in which we treat one another is of immense importance; far more important than many realize! The love of our fellow man, of the Divine Creative, of the Life around us, any sexual relationship, which is a psychic balance of energy equalizing itself, and in fact, any balanced exchange between individuals, assists the Great Work of the Universal Collective Unconscious/Divine Creative and therefore the races of mankind. It is precisely this reason that Netzach, the 7th Sephiroth-Victory, is described as the Sephira of Polarities.

Look, your Homo Sapient body is the Animal God of Earth (and the symbol of Venus in shape). 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. 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 "small gods", in an orgy of loving cooperation. You are Adam Kadmon, the entire Tree of Life. Each of us are a composed of an "godly intelligence collective" ; a combination of every plane of intelligent energy, by inheritance. However, on this world of divisionism, which "divides and conquers" our Understanding, only by acts of individual Valour can we claim our inheritance. In Qabalistic philosophy, "inheritance claiming", is known as the "lightning path".

These actions of Valour require the Will that is Spirit and the sexual-emotive 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 working together to "turn stones into trees". Hence, a Self of Valour, where all may be in chaos around you, but you carry the day by damning the torpedoes and going full battle speed ahead.

To make the "Above as the Below", i.e. the Great Work, is to realized yourself as sole owner and ruler of your own Mind and body, and claim this Homo Sapient as your "Sacred Place" in Time. Being Divine Energy, you are infinite Space, and within your Divine Collective Unconscious, you are the dreams of Energy-being. Life is the Lucid Dream of the Divine Creative! Time is the stuff you create forms from, in the Space of "you", by mixing beginning and end- time- in a cauldron of confined thoughts, heated by the vibrations of Lust/Passion, and shaped by Will-to-Be; you transform the illusion/dream of being, the "I Will Be" into a sensual reality of "I AM Being". This, of course, is a simplistic representation, as I haven't gone through every step of thought from particle to molecule, to the complex collective of Being; 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 has become "Us"! By knowing yourself, you can then realize 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, 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 may not be 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", fiery spirit wouldn't be "testing your metal". We are forged out of the Fires of Will to Force and Will to Form!
