Above all things, know thyself!
Thoth- 6 of Disks-Success
#6. In all things great and small, I see the beauty of the Divine Expression.
The Declarative Tarot- Layers of Presence-No. 6- Prosperous.
As always, the 6's are about a balance of trinities which makes them powerful and stable in dynamic movement.
The Thoth 6 of Disks card represents physical attainment, accomplishment, and success. This is the harmonious energy of Earth, the balance of polarities that have made fruitful the Son, Father, and Grandfather aspects of electric force and the Maid, Mother, and Crone aspects of magnetic force.
The Thoth 6 of Disks is assigned the Moon in Taurus, a place the Moon is incredibly happy to be as she is exalted there. However, the Moon is constantly changing, making this a temporary success. Tiphareth is the central Sun and the 6th Sephiroth of Beauty, comes to the rescue and adds its Midas-Golden touch to the cards in the layout. The 6 of Disks-Success, is aptly named The Lord of success, and since the Moon is exalted in Taurus, and is also in the Sun placement on the Tree of Life which creates a complete masculine and feminine flow of energy. Here the charm, subtleties, ebb, and flow of the Moon are merging with the hard work and deliberate earth qualities of Taurus ensuring success in business and other earthly matters. There is also a great beauty here that comes from the balances of mental, emotional, and physical energy enhanced by the higher conscious states of Self. Tiphareth is named Beauty as it is the Celestial Psyche or Soul and Being Beauty---feels great when you have a body! Beauty is not determined by fashion, nor culture, this is the Beauty of the Soul (solar self) that created me so it could be me! The great inner beauty of synchronicity; of a Trinity composed of Spirit-Mind-Body.
Generosity is also shown here, as you now have enough success in physical health, finances, and emotional balance to assist others in their success. The Moon in Taurus also suggests productivity as Taurus is an earth sign and a deep inner satisfaction (The Moon) or a deep desire on the subconscious level. The foundation of creation vibrates from the deep passion and desire of Will-to-Be and the deep satisfaction of I AM Success! This being so, often to achieve success in any endeavor means that we must be in union with our inner master who built us as its masterpiece; the I AM. There is only diligence and doing indicated here. This is where the axiom," Above all things know thyself" really comes into its own. In Qabalah, it is stated that the Truth is I AM, what I am is an assumption. I Am the Tarot, acknowledges that you are the 0=78 and/or the 78 aspects of the Spiritual Being! I AM Success, acknowledges that you are 100% present. That 100% is known as "Holy Spirit", for a whole spirit is a trinity of Spirit-Mind-Body.
The formula for success is indicated in the 6 planetary circles shown on the Thoth card:
1. Saturn represents success through discipline.
2. Jupiter reminds us that success is achieved by being open and flexible to options that may present themselves.
3. Venus reminds us of our beautiful heart and follows what has heartfelt meaning in our life. Do what you love and love what you are doing.
4. The Moon indicates success attainable through following the truth of us, by being authentic.
5. Mercury reminds us about how important organized well-timed communication is important to success.
6. Mars reminds us to express continually steady energy into our professional or personal issues to achieve success...The Tortoise vs the Hare scenario, where rapid spurts of energy do not achieve success whereas steady-on does.
Taurian love for Lady Moon:
In Taurus' realm, beneath the starry night,
A love for Lady Moon burns ever bright.
The Bull, with steady steps and earthly grace,
Adores her silver glow, her gentle face.
With horns that reach for heavens far above,
Taurus seeks the moon, his only love.
He's grounded, yet he longs to touch the skies,
To bask in Luna's light with heartfelt sighs.
The earth and moon, in cosmic dance they twirl,
As Taurus, steadfast, dreams of love's sweet swirl.
He finds his solace in her soothing beams,
In Lady Moon's embrace, he lives his dreams.
So, under starry canopy they swoon,
Taurus and his beloved Lady Moon.
Their love, a testament to timeless grace,
In each other's arms, they find their place.
Success comes from deep within rather than the superficial without, which is symbolize in this card as the joining of the Western Cross (deep inner self integration) and the opening and blooming of successful achievement (the Eastern symbol of success- the lotus/Western Rose). However, 6 is not only several accomplishments, but also that of the Christ, Buddha consciousness; a consciousness we call the Soul and/or the 6th Sephiroth-Beauty. Throughout history a certain sacrifice is made for the" Number of the Dying gods" (Six), which means a definite personality deconstruction for the reconstruction that brings success.
The colors on the Thoth Deck Card are muted in this rendition of the Thoth Tarot Deck; However, the center glows in dawn's light of rose-madder, surrounded by three concentric circles of golden yellow, salmon-pink, and amber. Suggesting Tiphareth, the Solar Self, fully realized on earth. The usual arrangement of the Planets as disks are being irradiated by the Sun/Son at the center. Again, Tiphareth is the Sun/Son and is here, idolized as the Rose and Cross. This is a forty-nine pedaled Rose, implying the interplay of the Seven with the Seven. The Rose crucified on a cross of 5 squares, is a Masonic magical symbol for the Sun. The Feminine is never separate from the Masculine, it is their interplay as counter sexual components that makes Life.
The Declarative Tarot- Layers of Presence-No. 6-Prosperous.
The Declarative Tarot-Layers of Presence (Pentacles)-No.6 Prosperous delegates paradigm of prosperity to focused effort, patience, presence, and attention to minutia as well as the bigger picture. True prosperity comes from the inside out. However, if you chase prosperity, the macrocosm grants your wish to continually chase prosperity. Instead, declare it as: " I AM the Wealth that builds Prosperity!" Declaring your identity as " I AM..." is always done and creates life motion. Be incredibly careful about the declarations of Self, for they become your life's journey. "I Am happiness" creates happiness, "I AM seeking happiness" creates seeking. " I AM needing more money", creates needing. " I AM Wealth, Health, and Wellbeing", creates a life motion of health, wealth, and wellbeing. We declare our identity as I AM every day, in automatic ways, which should be examined before you add emotion to them. "I AM Love", beats the hell out of seeking it.
On the bottom of the No.6-Prosperous card is a Osmia Bee (a type of Mason Bee) a native of Australia and found on the British Isles. Here the Osmia Bee finds an empty snail shell and places her progeny within layers of moss, grass, and mud to close the opening. She then camouflages the shell with more grass cuttings. This motherly attention to detail allows the progeny to develop undisturbed and is a form of prosperity achieved by the Osmia Bee's efforts.
Osmia bees, commonly known as mason bees, are indeed fascinating creatures, but they may not be as prominent in folklore as some other bee species. However, they play a crucial role in pollination, and their importance in ecological systems has garnered attention and appreciation in recent years. While specific folklore about Osmia bees may be limited, bees, in general, have held symbolic and cultural significance in various cultures throughout history. Here are a few general beliefs and symbols associated with bees:
Hard Work and Industriousness: Bees are often seen as symbols of hard work, industry, and diligence. Their tireless efforts in collecting nectar and pollen to make honey have made them emblematic of industriousness in many cultures.
Community and Cooperation: Bees live in colonies and work together for the common good of the hive. This has led to them symbolizing community, cooperation, and teamwork.
Fertility and Productivity: The ability of bees to pollinate flowers and help plants bear fruit has linked them to fertility and productivity in various traditions.
Spiritual Symbolism: In some spiritual and esoteric traditions, bees have been associated with concepts like the soul, rebirth, and transformation.
While there may not be specific folklore about Osmia bees, they share many of these symbolic attributes with other bee species. Their role in pollination and ecological balance is increasingly recognized and celebrated in modern times as we become more aware of the importance of these tiny pollinators.
Hence, diligence, focus, effort, and a sense of presence bring continual success. Are you always complaining about your job? Can you trust your work as a self-expression of self-value? Shoddy work is a sure sign of low self-esteem. To ensure success follow the example of this small pollinator, trust your experience, and apply your skill sets: a job well done will create opportunities that bring continuation of potential of greater prosperity.
The Red Squirrel may be an obvious metaphor for industrious work. However, they go about their busy day combing the acorns. nuts, and leaves of various species gathering the wealth of nature and prospering.

Mushrooms prosper by finding a proper location to keep the growing expansion of the natural forest by sending out spores after fruition. Fruition is not the end goal here; it is the continuation of the cycles of natural growth and life expansion. Seed taking root to continue the cycle of success. Hence, sharing wealth brings prosperity to all. As Grace Sequioa states in her book: "Shared experiences with those around us, collaborative opportunities, and trust of oneself to rise to the challenges, bring about a time of harvest and prosperousness."
This card represents good luck in monetary affairs. You've had a run of luck and are enjoying your newfound wealth. The caveat here is to be generous for that promotes prosperity but be careful not to fall into bad spending habits. It states that the querent shares gifts of love or material value with others, and they with you.
