Thoth-10 of Disks-Wealth
# 10. The Kingdom of Spirit is Embodied in my Flesh.
The Declarative Tarot-Layers of Presence (Disks)-No. 10-Summation.
THE 10 OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is associated with Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Haayah and Laviah. Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Active Material world. Hence this card is also called: The Lord of Wealth-a hieroglyph of the cycle of regeneration.
Thoth- 10 of disks-wealth
Represented in this Thoth card is prosperity, wealth, success in the world of finances, family, and physical health. This represents the appreciation of luxury that comes from "knowing the right people". The Thoth card also shows the Pentacles in the Tree of Life pattern, an image of human heritage.
The Thoth 10 of Disks card represents the sum of the other 35 minor arcana (Aces are not considered Minor Cards as they are the "seeds" of the Minors) since wealth is a synchronicity of mind, body, and soul. 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 Thoth star coins) you will be able to manifest abundance (the three Hebrew symbols for abundance coins-bottom center).
The Declarative Tarot-Layers of Presence-No. 10- Summation illustrates a summation of the journey of what it means to be present and in the moment. Look into this card and see yourself in all these images. The questioner has become the seer!
In the Center of this Card of the Universe, is you holding the balance of what it means to be earth while being cognizant of the pull and reflections of the moon. The Moon, mother of fantasy, illusion, and dreams reminds us that all ideas are self-reflections and that all reflections are illusions until made manifest by your determination and dedication to Self-Presence. Standing in authentic self-authority your inner sun is radiant like the sun of our solar system. You use your senses to define what thoughts expand and liberate life, but the inner eye (I) sees so much more in the multiverse of the One Mind, and so you trust and verify. The Greater Self of the Universe of the 0 that equals 2 (Divine Androgyny) looks down and smiles in the loving relationship of co-creativity.
Here the Celestial Inner You is surrounded by life that swims, flies, leaps, and hoots their presence as "another way to be you" and/or another way to be life. Every being in this card is interconnected. Life is a collective and we all belong to each other. In summary, we are made of all that is, was, and form it into a future of shall be.
Title: The Interconnectedness of All Life and the Human Being's Composition
Introduction: In the vast tapestry of existence, the interconnectedness of all life forms a fundamental thread that weaves through the very fabric of our reality. From the smallest microorganisms to the grandest ecosystems, there exists an intricate web of relationships that bind all living beings together. The human being, as a product of Earth, embodies this interconnectedness in a profound way.
Unity of Life: Life on Earth is characterized by its unity. All living organisms share a common ancestry, tracing their origins back to a single, ancient ancestor. This concept, known as the theory of common descent, highlights the profound interconnectedness of life.
Ecosystems and Interdependence: Ecosystems exemplify the interconnectedness of life. Within an ecosystem, various species depend on each other for survival. The well-being of one species can directly impact others, creating a delicate balance. Human beings, as part of these ecosystems, play a pivotal role in maintaining this balance.
Elemental Composition: When we consider human beings, we recognize that our physical bodies are composed of the very elements found in the Earth's crust. Carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen, and a multitude of other elements are the building blocks of our existence. We are, quite literally, made of stardust and Earth's elements.
Spiritual and Metaphysical Connection: Beyond the physical, metaphysical, and spiritual traditions have long recognized the interconnectedness of all life. In practices such as Western Hermetic Qabalah and High Magick, there is an acknowledgment of the divine spark within every being, reflecting a deeper connection that transcends the material world.
Tarot and Symbolism: In your exploration of Tarot Card Comparisons, you may find that the symbolism within the cards often represents the interconnectedness of various aspects of life. Archetypal imagery can serve as a powerful tool for understanding the intricate relationships that exist within the human experience.
Conclusion: The concept that all life is connected, and that the human being is a composite of all that is of Earth is a profound and timeless truth. Whether viewed from a scientific, ecological, or metaphysical perspective, this interconnectedness reminds us of our responsibility to cherish and preserve the delicate balance of life on our planet. As a Metaphysician and parapsychologist, your unique perspective can shed light on the spiritual and metaphysical dimensions of this interconnectedness, enriching the understanding of your readers. For we are Celestial Selves who have journeyed across the Milky Way galaxy, to arrive here to claim the magnificent and sacred human body.
Here is the key to enjoying your success and wealth without the fear of losing it. In fact, true abundance should be owned by you, and not you by it. Therefore, a wealthy person promotes prosperity by sharing their wealth. Invest some of it in others and in this instance in future generations of one's family. Since you have earned it, you can always earn more, as that path has been made open to your travel by your very own effort to clear the way. Therefore, another meaning of this card is a successful long-term business and family support created by wisdom, harmony, and inheritance. This also represents complete stability in family affairs.
As stated, the Astrological sign for the Thoth 10 of Disks 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 called the Psyche, (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-Mind and Body are manifesting abundance. Obviously, this is a card of prosperity and obviously, it will change, but for now eat, drink and be merry and express your gratitude. We should also understand that wealth becomes prosperity when we spend/share it as our wealth prospers others and thus ourselves as sharing is also a form of communication and accumulation.
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/Plane, 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 intimate Creation, and it is now the end and nowhere else to go but up. However, Mercury, who is Thoth in Crowley/Harris Tarot is not one to stand around and form a clot, like matter is known to do. So, in the 10 of Disks we see the invocation of Mercury in the 10 coins. Also, the 1st Sephiroth in the Tree of Life is Kether, whose God name is Eheieh-meaning: "I Will Be". The 10th Sephiroth is Malkuth- the fulfillment of that declaration of "I Will Be" by becoming the Material World of "I AM Being"! "I AM Divinity enjoying itself amongst all that I AM!"
- Kether- this top coin displays the astrological sign of Mercury.
- Chokmah- Here is the Magus, a symbol of Mercury, complete with the right-angle positions of ATU 1.
- Binah-shows the alchemical symbol of Mercury.
- Chessed- illustrates Pa, the Enochian equivalent of the letter "B", which is the Hebrew letter Beth that is associated with the Magus/Mercury.
- Geburah-the letter Beth.
- Tiphareth- the name of Raphael in Hebrew. Raphael is the ruling Angel of Mercury.
- Netzach- Mercury's 8-pointed star.
- Hod- displays the hexagram within the hexagon, symbol of the Sun (all elemental forces are exhausted in Malkuth, the Sun is the only possibility of energy projection in the elemental impasse.)
- Yesod- is shown with the *Pythagorean Tetractys (see below).
- Malkuth-Here be the Caduceus of Mercury. Harris artfully created it from the 3 mother letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
The Thoth 10 of Disks, forms a Tetractys of the decad. The tetractys (Greek: τετρακτύς), or tetrad, or the tetractys of the decad (a group of ten) is a triangular figure consisting of ten points arranged in four rows: one, two, three, and four points in each row, which is the geometrical representation of the fourth triangular number. As a mystical symbol, it was especially important to the secret worship of Pythagoreanism. There were four seasons, and the number was also associated with planetary motions and music. In truth, the 10 of Disks represents a melody of the invisible conjoined with the visible and composed from harmonic wisdom.
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 Conscious of the Divine Creative. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, (the God Body) the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below”, i.e. The Qabalistic Great Work. However, a 10 is a 1+0, and shall return to the 1- Magus (who is Mercury/Thoth) and begins again as an Ace which is a new seed.
As energy that is Spiral (spirit), we are "everywhere and nowhere" at the very moment of "I", a kind of diffusion into eternity of the Universal Collective Unconscious. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man/Adam Khadmon) I Am -can focus sensually on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, giving the psyche not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to immediately discriminate and/or discern life- motion! In other words----"freedom of Choice" to weave a harmony of frequency that is "Self", which simply means free to move by perspective chosen and not “natural evolution”. Therefore, the Mercury that I Am finds it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence" and move about sensually while also evolving via perspective while fulfilling the will of Eheieh (Kether: "I Will Be"). To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, and a sensual-Mental-Spiritual Wealth that mere Ideas do not normally experience in the vast Mind of the Universal Divine Collective. However, that Will to be is fulfilled by you! The" I Am" created the "Me" which supplies intimacy with Creation so necessary for in-form-action and/or experience. The body also generates sensual contact with One's dream of "Self". That is an amazing wealth to any creator. For knowledge is power/wealth and to sensually experience ideas of Self builds knowledge.
It's time we realized that we are the "Sacred Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or lustful (The Lust cloud of Goddess- God-bio-photons built us!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and sensual! The Divine Creative’s Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution-to the Shadow side of the Unconscious Mind as we learn to love our light and shadow as a complete manifestation of the Divine "I AM"! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy (anti life) and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct idea right at the time and place of "seeing/sensing an error"! The “I Am” is the Image-maker, who can recreate the theory of image by using our "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"! Imagination is the "Holy Grail", the enclosure that builds form and rationale puts form to measurement (manifestation). We are indeed the wealthiest of inheritors, especially if we skillfully know ourselves as Willed Imagination of Divine Self Awareness!
Adam Khadmon (The Heavenly Human Hermaphrodite)
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria which simply means The First Sephira - Kether, The Above, that we bring to the below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal, an intimate bridge between the Creator and Creation! Therefore, we are Lust without the "Need of result"; being is the result of our Lust! Lust being the Divine Frenzy of vigorous energy that is the rhythmic vibration in all things that "Live"! What makes this even better is that we, each alone, are our own Tree of Life/Universe; but this is not known to you until you have established a mercurial communication middle pillar with your Holy Guardian Angel/Higher-Self! Each of us must be the Magus that came to earth to magically control " a point in time", as the Sun (Energy-in-motion- consciousness) of the Divine Creative's "Will to Be". Information must become in-form-action before it becomes knowledge. Hence, you are the in-form-action of the Divine Creative- you are the I Am. I AM the bridge of knowledge between microcosms and macrocosms! I AM Life that makes Lifetimes!
