Thoth-Ace of Disks
The Root Powers of Earth.
As mentioned, Kether is symbolized as the Point, The Crown and the Swastika, and if you have been following the blogs, you know the point to imply completeness unto itself, without dimension or external definition. The Point is also attributed to the number 1 which mathematically has the potential for all other numbers.
The Crown symbolizes the Holy Guiding Spirit to which we may aspire. Since diamonds are the stone representing Kether, for it shows the purest light, the crown should be a diamond crown.
The Swastika, is actually a Buddhist symbol for the "First Swirlings" of manifestation and represents the swirling motion around the Point that emphasizes self-contained motion.
To reiterate, the Four Aces are the Root Force of the Alchemical Four elements. The Ace of Disks is the Root Force behind physical manifestation that governs the motion within the movement of Matter, representing the qabalistic world of Assiah. The Princess of Disks is the throne of the Ace of Disks, and the Ace of Disks rules the Aries-Taurus-Gemini quadrant above the North Pole, and the area of Europe and Africa.
Represents the influence of Kether, "The First Swirling" in matter or the World of Assiah, as Qabalists call it. It is a card of materiality, but not necessarily good or evil, nor is it necessarily wealth.
The card is in the Green of Spring, new growth, and the Aeon of Isis, the mother of Form who is normally shown as Emerald green, but in the Ace of Disks the Aeon is shown in spring green after the Resurrection of Osiris as Horus; Horus being the New Aeon.
The 4 Wings represent the 4 Archangels whose powers balance each other and create stability through the Four Elements. The 6 wings also represent the number of the Sun and the implied union of Earth and Sun hat creates the living organic organism that is the living earth.
As we know atoms to swirl, and planets to revolve, we know that matter is a swirling motion and not a static one at all. Thus the card implies swirls and movement within a stable image or as Zoroaster Stated, “rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud." Implying swirling frequencies of energy that cause motion.
The Greek words for “to the mark the beast" -TO META OHEPION (To mega Therion) appear in the center of this card. The number 666 also shows in this card, this all shows the Earth to be the world of the Animal, as its highest form and/or the Pan of Earth. The God-Mind (Hu-Manas) has changed this by expanding the mammalian predator by Genetic Manipulation of the “fallen Angels” (ancient aliens) and the Animal DNA of earth. Thus the homo sapiens sapiens body is a G.M.O, for the purpose of advanced evolutionary work; The Great Work, which is to bring the above and the below into perfect union on earth. To the indoctrinated, the Beast/Body is seen by some as a lowly thing, whereas Divine Creative has seen the Beast to be worthy of inheritor status. I don't presume to question the Divine Creative in this, I just exalt in my inheritance. Doing my best to be the "As above, so below".
According to Crowley, the central Hieroglyph is that of "the chosen priest and apostle of infinite space," (The Husband),"The prince-priest the Beast"- To Meta Ohepion- [Liber Al. I.15.] was Crowley's motto as he saw himself as the Prince Priest of the Beast. Thus, the Phallus, in the shape of the Yoni linga, is shown as the central symbol of this card, as that is the symbol of Tetragrammaton ("rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud,") again showing the Sol (Phallus) Luna (Yoni) union of reflected light. Crowley took this card as his personal Hieroglyph, so deep study is required to understand his deep and subtle meanings implied by this card. Purchasing his book of Thoth, and reading it may help one see beyond their misunderstanding.
Ace of Pentacles-Gothic Tarot
The Gothic Tarot-Ace of Pentacles, displays a skull and crossbones in the shape of a pentagram. The Pentagram/Pentacle is a symbol of the 4 universal elements and the spirit. The world of matter, is the physical world of life and death. The Gothic Art is to show the "scary" images of the shadow side of life; death being considered such. However, to the kabbalist,/qabalist, death is merely transforming into another form of Self.
