Thoth 10 of Disks-Wealth:
Prosperity, wealth, success in the world of finances and physical health. The 10 of Disks card is the sum total of the other 35 minor arcana since wealth is a synchronicity of Spirit-Mind-Body. 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 of your intelligent 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- 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 Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious. 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 as they "leave the body" in astral projections; However, they often forget, that they are still "attached" to a sensual body by the "silver cord", and thus feel the experiences. But to travel, the other Sephiroth without a body, as in dead, is to feel nothing at all! There is only One Sense to Consciousness, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "33 Senses" (the 33 senses of Tantra) of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I" and/or the original Identity. To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than 5, but that is not for this blog to describe, so 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 10 OF DISKS, is called the Ten of Pentacles or Ten of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world...the Spinning of a Disk. Where the Stability of a Discus is in its spin. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. Atoms spine and it is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion.
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 Disks 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 Universal Collective Unconscious of the Divine Creative. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below”, i.e. The Great Work. After all the Universe of movement and from began as Eheieh was shouted out by Kether the "1st" Intelligence and/or Primal I . Eheieh is a Hebrew word for "I Will Be"! In Malkuth that "Will" has become manifest as I AM Being!
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 has the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, giving not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to immediately discriminate motion as a "Me"! In other words----"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective chosen and not “natural evolution”. There is obviously enough rope to "hang ourselves with" here. Hence, the intimacy of senses. As Psyche's (suns of god) we now can feel function and dysfunction.
This Rocks! 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 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 devious or lustful ( However, The Lust cloud of Goddess- God-bio-protons built us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth (knowledge) 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 (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an error"! I say, "We Rock Dudes and Dudesses!" The “I Am” is the Image maker, establishing Itself as "Me" on Malkuth (many "me's",each a "self-reflection" of the Collective I AM) who can be intimate with creation, and even with the most sublime of "first material" that we call thought.
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria which simply means The First Sephiroth - Kether, The Above, that is both Above and Below, for all is 1! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal; a bridge of mercurial intelligence between the Creator and Creation! Therefore, we are Lust without the Need of result; being a intimate motion of Self, is the result of our Lust! Lust being the Divine Frenzy that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! Like I said, "We Rock"! We, each alone, are a Tree of Life that is the "dance steps" of the Divine 0=2 and/or the Anima (Spirit) and Animus (Soul) of the Divine Creative whose dance is the rhythmic "Breath" (Eheieh, sounds like exhaling breath) in all "things".
The Tarot of The Spirit- Ten of Earth-The Great Work, is about feeling the communication of order. Everything in your life is now moving in an excellent rhythm. Here one is realizing a special wealth which is spiritual, intellectual, and physical. The True meaning of wealth, which is unlike the transitory man-made wealth of the Patriarch.
Shown on the Ten of Earth, is the descent of wealth (Knowledge) from the above to the below. Here. "Above all things, know thyself" is the bank draft of unlimited inheritance that we all can receive. The energy of Kether, now descends to earth to do its work...I AM ME! This Great Work is symbolized as a pen drawing a white circle on a dark plane. This is a multi colored in pen, that contains all the colors that are shown in the energy centers of the body. There is also the pattern of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, indicating all is well, all is in proportion, balance and a state of perfect rhythm. Setting ink to paper signifies "the word is made manifest" and/or Self- Knowledge has become In-Form-Action (information).
When the 10 of Disks or Ten of Earth is thrown during a reading, the querent:
- Is assured of physical prosperity and abundance. But being a Ten, 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.
- 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.
- Success and prosperity.
