I will value all life.
The Starman-Princess of Pentacles is a new and unique way to artistically express the Lady of Spring. She still is represented as a fecund and pregnant with new life and possibilities, with a encircled pentacle on her pregnant belly. Her presence seems to be one of a strong carnivalesque appearance mixed with a shamanistic designs. On her back is the world's oldest instrument, the aboriginal didgeridoo whose powerful primal sound heals the land and the people with the power of breath. The magic of the magician is suggested in her cape. Instead of wearing her red shoes, she prefers to go barefoot. The sprouting plant and what looks to be apricots, suggests that we live a modern fruitless life and have sadly lost our way and that those that come to her shall be found and given a fruitful and fecund life. Does anyone actually think we are the only living thing on this earth and because we can destroy it, we have the right to destroy other habitats for our own self-absorbed greed which is really a fear of death? Therefore, because we fear death, we must destroy life?
The Dead Trees around her can suggest what the Thoth grove of leafless trees around the princess suggest, which it is the end cycle of winter, and spring is just beginning, or representing the devastated way we still poison the earth with our greed, believing that we "own the land" and can do with it whatever we want. Truth is, if you take over the responsibility of "land ownership", you have become a Care Taker who improves the lands fertility and fecundness for all life forms. A type of Shepard for Gaia's flock. Since this is not usually done, we are violating our "contract" with Gaia, towards mutual growth and expansion. Only she knows how she will close this violated contract. It will come as a "surprise" since we know longer have "rituals in the groves" where we keep mental contact with Gaia, and celebrate with her the fertile and fecund lands. We have forgotten that Gaia, Earth, is a self-regulating organism using its elements of Air, Oceans and Land Mass to form a complex inter-related system that supports life. We really don't want Gaia to consider a paradigm shift.
A paradigm shift, as identified by American physicist Thomas Kuhn, is a fundamental change in the basic concepts and experimental practices of a scientific discipline. Kuhn contrasted these shifts, which characterize a scientific revolution, to the activity of normal science, which he described as scientific work done within a prevailing framework (or paradigm).
The Princess of Pentacles is standing inside an old nuclear power plant cooling tower, alluding to the controversies surrounding nuclear power and the way it poisons the air, earth, and water. It seems that a large been stalk shows the way out of this tower as it climbs to the Sun. The Sun reminds us of alternative sources of power, such as Solar and Wind power, that have superseded nuclear sources in 3 of the 4 largest world economies, led by China.
When the Starman Princess of Pentacles is thrown during an divination, it implies:
- Be observant and resourceful.
- Pay attention to the little details.
- Enjoy collaboration
- Feeling stagnant.
- Nothing moves forward.
- Being over protective for the situation.
- In the comfort zone.
- Not enjoying the work.
The Thoth Princess of Disks, represents the 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 intelligent energy that weave a pattern of energy conscious in the material world. Even you are a Solar Soul, a Photon Being of light that has evolved self-awareness over billions of years. Hence, Light has become you!
The Greeks called this state of intelligence, Persephone, who enters Hades (the underworld), every winter and escapes Hades and manifests on Earth every spring. She is the pioneering nature of fertility (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 crystal staff, shows her desire to give birth to new forms that are in alignment with who she is.
- 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 (feminine spirit) within the organic form.
We are all Souls who are 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.
- This lovely Priestess of Demeter, wears the crest of the Ram and in her right hand, a scepter descending into the Earth, where its head becomes a diamond. To Qabalists, the Diamond is the Precious Stone of Kether (The Highest and purest Light) and symbolizes the Purest Light formed in Matter in the “diamond form of as above-so below".
- As would Freya, (Norse Grove Goddess) she stands in a grove of sacred trees, before an altar suggesting a wheat sheaf which is a symbol for Demeter. But she is not alone. Contrary to the sexism of misogynistic thought, she is never without He and He is never without She, so she holds in her left hand a disk which bears the Chinese ideogram denoting the twin spiral force of Goddess/God (Creation), in equilibrium; from this is born the Rose of Isis (Rose-Mari), the Great Fertile Mother of the Nile delta.
The characteristics of the Princess of Disks archetypal personality are more numerous than a one hopes to enumerate for she is the Ultimate in Womanhood and has all the characteristics of the "Womb with a View",i.e., the Mother of all Forms/the 3rd Sephiroth-Binah;Understanding. She contains all the characteristics of woman and it depends on the influences whether she is subject to “one or the other" of these traits that manifest as action. However, this is not a scattering of energy, rather whatever trait she acts on, it is pure and focused, and life changing. To the shallow (those afraid of their emotional depth), she is bewildering inconsistency; to the centered, she is a "Powerful Moment" of Beauty. She is both nourishing and vitalizing.
We may see her as Persephone arising from the nether world of winter into the bright light of spring, symbolizing that from the deepest, darkest depths arises the Wisdom of "Womb-Rite"; the resurrection and regeneration of the Living. There really isn't any negative here, unless one finds her ability to "be purely in the moment" to rapid and unsettling for their need for linear- stability. Such a shallow one would be unable to see that stability is based purely on "the movement of Moment" and not a linear line of addition. Therefore, she is serpentine in her motion of spirals. The universe is Spirals upon Spirals, dimensions upon dimensions, union upon union and suffers no division. To enjoy her, you must dance with her in her sacred grove of Life, YOUR HEART!
The Princesses and the Aces.
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 who is represented in the tarot as the Queen of Disks.
Now this may all be new to us of the "Divide and conquer" military industrial complex, but as I tour my Soul's Akasha, I find a 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, Air and Sun" union, transformed soil into living forms, long before our scientist "discovered" this very concept in the study of Thermodynamics.The Thoth- 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 suggested, 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 Divine 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, is also the mate to the equalized the 3 sevens adding to 156 (Babalon-The Scarlet woman.)
This central cipher 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- Greek for "The Aftermath".
About this whirling Disk are its six wings (6 is the number of the Sun) The Thoth Deck 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.
This is the Lady of Rebirth and Renewal and to understand the Depth of the Ultimate Womb---is to meditate long and hard on this card, and to read the Goddess Myths with the eye (I) of the soul. In this world, where love is a profit sharing endeavor, it is hard for most of us to believe that "Love built Me to be Itself"----Love is Now and fears no future. But the truth is, "Creation is Love made manifest" and we are the image of Love made manifest by the Womb of the Goddess! I Am the love of you.
If the Princess of Disks card shows up in a reading, it is best said:
- That rebirth is apparent from past defeat.
- Or that a new love is blooming in your life.
- It represents a young woman with rich brown or red- brown hair and dark eyes, she is generous, kind, diligent, benevolent, careful and endowed with persevering courage.
- She may also be pregnant with child or birthing ideas, projects, identity and self-aspects.
- She or he is on the Brink of Transformation and Revelation.
- She or he may also have a concentrated desire to learn, and is applying her/his fertile mind to scholarly pursuits.
- One becomes wasteful and prodigal.
