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 Princess of Disks represents 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 conscious energy that weaves a pattern of light in the material world as a being.
The Greeks called this state of consciousness Persephone, who enters Hades, 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, while also representing the last of winters melting snow.
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. The last of 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.On the brink of transformation, from winter to spring, 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.
When this card is thrown, for male or female, this card represents the: creative part of the Earth anima within the organic form.
Our Inner Self (Soul), is Androgynous (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 who has"tunnel focus" on creation, this card can also warn us of the dangers of becoming so focused on one thing, that we cannot enjoy the life all around us.
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 mysogenic 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 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" and/or the Mother of all Forms. She contains all the characteristics of Divine Feminine and it depends on the influences whether she is subject to “one or the other" of these traits that manifest as action. However, she is one who scatters 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 Movement"of Beauty. She is both nourishing and vitalizing.
We may see the divine "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, is she serpentine in her motion. 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 that lies deeply in the heart.
This is the Lady of Rebirth and Renewal and to understand the Depth of the Ultimate Womb of Spirit---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, "God (Creation) is Love made manifest" and we are the image of Love made manifest by the Womb of the Goddess!
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 (Heavenly Human), 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 (Gaea) who is represented in the tarot as the Queen of Disks.
Now the philosophy of Earth as an Intelligent being may all be new to us of the "Divide and conquer" military industrial complex, but as I tour my Soul, I find a Perspective-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 and Sun" united, transformed soil into living forms, long before our scientist "discovered" this very concept in the study of biology.
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 Western doctrine of Tetragrammaton 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," Force/Energy. Therefore the Name YHVH is not a dead symbol, but a whirling Sphere of Divine Action.
The center of the Thoth 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, as equilateral to the seven sevens adding to 156 (Babalon-The Scarlett woman). For more information on 156, I recommend that you get the Book of Thoth, and scroll to pages 210-212 for further information and references.This central cypher 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* (common spelling is Ohpion)https://www.metaphysicalityinc.com/2016/01/serpent-gate-to-meta-ophion.html-- 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.

....."Then one comes to the inscription. Inside the wall of the cell runs a curious phrase: TO META OHPION, for the rest of this post changed to the more common spelling OPHION. The words are Classical Greek, but of a slightly ungrammatical kind, leaving the meaning ambiguous. Scholars of Crowley’s work often translate the phrase as something like, “After the nature of the snake,” but Crowley himself seemed to treat it as a single unit, which he identified with the meanings “Initiation,” or “Entrance.” The core reference of the phrase is the serpent Ophion of Greek mythology, who was held to have ruled the world in the beginning alongside the goddess Eurynome, before being overthrown by Chronos, Rhea, and the Titans (who were later, in their turn, overthrown by Zeus and the Olympians)".
You may also find out more information on the myth of Eurynome in the Book -The Woman's encyclopedia of myth and secrets-by Barbra G. Walker (you can get it on Amazon.com). I highly recommend this book!
The Tarot of The Spirit-Earth Sister.
Earth Sister, also represents the brink of transformation and heralds that something new is coming. Here, also a birth is about to occur. Here, the inner depths of one's self is pregnant with the secret future.
The Earth sister is green and mountain shaped, as she represents the peak of the Mountain of Fruition. She is pregnant , giving birth to the crystalline light that all matter is made from. She is of acute hearing, and hears the message in the sound of Om/Aum**.
Om or Aum (listen (help·info), IAST:Oṃ, ॐ) is a sacred sound and a spiritual symbol in Indian religions. In Hinduism, it signifies the essence of the ultimate reality, consciousness or Atman.
Again, she is the one who administers the "pure light" of Kether/I AM. This is a spiral energy and life force of the Universe. This spiraling energy is shown about her head. Her power to create comes from the fact that she is Earth, and the limitless substance from which all things are made.
The Thoth Princess and Earth Sister both are comparable and therefore, the divination meanings are the same for both.
If the Princess of Disks or Earth Sister 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.
- An essential and valuable impulse that will bear fruit in the long run.
If ill-defined by the surrounding cards she or he becomes:
- Wasteful and prodigal.
