Thoth Tarot- 7 of Disks-Failure.

The 7 of Disks/Pentacles indicates a pause in the garden of financial, health, and physical relationships. These cards also caution us on fear of failure and fear of success which is generated by negative past experiences. Many know that to fear is to constrict energy and to obfuscate the direction it is being sent. Fear is a creativity gone against the motion of the mind's imagination interfering with its ability to solve problems. Also, our fear of discomfort, is our worst enemy here.

When Saturn is in the house of Taurus in an astrological chart, it influences the individual's approach to responsibilities, structure, and limitations within the realms associated with Taurus. Here are some characteristics:

  1. Material Stability: Saturn in Taurus emphasizes the need for material stability and financial security. Individuals with this placement are likely to be disciplined and practical when it comes to managing their resources.

  2. Slow and Steady Growth: Taurus is an earth sign known for its slow and steady approach. Saturn reinforces this trait, indicating that achievements and personal growth may come through patient and persistent efforts over time.

  3. Conservative Values: The combination of Saturn and Taurus tends to make individuals value tradition and conservative principles. They may be cautious and reserved, preferring the familiar and proven rather than taking unnecessary risks.

  4. Challenges in Change: Taurus is resistant to change, and Saturn's influence can amplify this quality. People with this placement may find it challenging to adapt to new situations or embrace change, preferring the comfort of the known.

  5. Work Ethic: Saturn in Taurus indicates a strong work ethic. Individuals may approach their tasks with a methodical and pragmatic mindset, focusing on achieving tangible results.

  6. Financial Prudence: There is a tendency to be financially conservative and prudent. Saturn's influence may lead individuals to carefully plan and manage their finances, avoiding unnecessary risks.

  7. Potential Challenges: While the disciplined and structured approach is an asset, individuals should be mindful not to become overly rigid or resistant to change. Learning to adapt without compromising values is a key lesson for those with Saturn in Taurus.

Remember, the interpretation of Saturn in Taurus can vary based on the entire birth chart, including aspects and placements of other planets. It's advisable to consider the broader context for a more comprehensive analysis.

The Astromatrix Tarot- 7 of Pentacles

Saturn in Taurus brings disappointment, often because of a great deal of work that brings little reward. This is the also-obvious pictured on the Astromatrix Tarot-7 of Pentacles. Around the figure on the card is a garden of 7 Pentacles, showing great labor without the expected results. Therefore, this card's primary meaning is although laborious your short-term goals may have produced less than envisioned; However, this does indicate that patience and hard work will prove your long-term goals to be fruitful as well. Although the first crop is not as fruitful as wished, wealth and success may await the querent but not immediately. The body language of the harvester shows consternation and a need to figure out how to make the garden more fruitful and a need for more investigation into the long-term goals.

Thoth- 7 of Disks-Failure

Take a long look at the stark beauty of this almost Gothic Thoth card. Its astrological sign is Saturn in Taurus. The planet Saturn is symbolic of constricted, restricted and/or the feeling of limited energy; its metal is lead, hence the gray lead color. Taurus is representative of productivity, bullheadedness, and achievement. The Saturn in the house of Taurus together tell us that our productivity and achievement are being restricted and limited by our stubborn hold on the past, or fear of failure. This aspect of Saturn and Taurus can also be seen in the disk- like coins. What is also seen is the pattern of the disks that form the face of an owl, in the center of the card.

The owl is associated with the Crone, of the Trinity Goddess of Maid-Mother-Crone fame. The Crone deconstructs the old, so that the new can be reconstructed.

  1. The helmet symbol is Saturn, and the Bull is Taurus. Predicting a feeling of failure that interferes with our financial situation. The Helmet is also a symbol of a conscious constriction of which fear is indicative of. The 7 of Disks card also indicates a loss of capacity to inspire ourselves or others.
  2. Yet there are contradictory meanings here since this is a pause in the force of our creativity, for the Bull indicates one could also be waiting for the fruition of their efforts in this time of repose and waiting for results. In the spoilage of the past, seeds of new growth are being planted here, and the querent may be waiting for a better and more rewarding path to be discovered. Patience is advised.

Fear is constricted energy focused on a point of I Am... I Am is our inherited God Voice within our Super-conscious. It declares the direction of our energy such as, "I Am sad, I Am happy, I Am poor, or I AM wealthy". In the infinite realm of possibilities, I AM the foundation of all creation, your truth, fate, and creation are a restriction of energy to form a "point in time" and an assumption which we are to be masters of! Since you have been given the God-like freedom to declare yourself any way you like...repeating concepts of failure tell your Greater Self that you demand failure as an expression of your likeness and/or fate!

Knowing this, it is recommended that for the next 7 weeks or 7 months that your repeat declarations of Wealth, which is far beyond man-made riches. How about; "I Am the Will and the Way. I Am the Wealth and I own the Day!” Say this at least 7 times a day for 7 weeks or 7 Months. I've been doing it now for the past 10 years and my days flow in a joyous dance of discovery and a multiverse of richness beyond but also including the coin of the realm. I highly recommend that you remember yourself as a Magic Sorcerer from the Source of all Creation who has been given the power of emotional focus to create your reality. This is a great inherited power---use it gratefully!

Copper Verdigris

Netzach means Victory; However, the Victory here is the inner verdigris native to the metal of Venus, Copper, overcoming the shallow outer brightness of the metal. therefore, the outer beauty of Venus, the planet attributed to Netzach, is laid low by the victory of time; Saturn is also "Grandfather Time", whose metal is lead. A lead and copper mixture, is all about corruption. To reiterate: Feelings, instinct, and undifferentiated Group Mind, are attributed to the 7th Sphere of Netzach, therefore, the instincts are being corrupted here.

There are sixteen of the geomantic figures (See AC's book, 777 or "The Handbook of Geomancy" Equinox Vol. I, No.2). The 7 of Disks is in the shape of the geomantic figure Rubeus, which represents putrefaction, a menacing symbol. However, if you are a student of Alchemy, putrefaction is noted as a necessary process of chemical transformation before purification can be produced. Thus, the atmosphere of the card implies blight, cultivation is spoiled. The suggestion is bad money; However, patience and hard labor will produce more.

The 7 of Disks, Failure, is also called. The Lord of Success unfulfilled and rightly so, as it is about physical failure and non-success.

Rider-Waite-Smith 7 of pentacles.

broken image

The artwork of the Astromatrix Tarot hints at the Traditional art of the Rider-Waite-Smith. However, the Astromatrix Tarot also assigns the Astrology symbols to its small cards. Here we also see that Saturn is in the house of Taurus.

When the 7 of Disks /Pentacles, is thrown during a reading, implied is:

  • A fear of failure with finances, health and relationships. However, 7 in Netzach is a weak event, and deregulation of the element of earth, so soon the querent's project will be completed if determined to "keep on" and ignoring the feelings of never finishing the task.
  • The Determination to release this fear of failure should go on for within 7 weeks or 7 months. However, this determination must be hard fought, for there is a tendency to abandon labor, and allowing everything to sink in a mire of sloth.
  • Yet again, putrefaction is before the transformation of purification, so this is the point where the "lowest fallen becomes the highest exalted".
  • The implication of this card, is that you shall succeed if you don't listen to the thoughts of failure that are tempting your brain. Push harder, you'll soon succeed. 
  • In the next 7 weeks or 7 months, the more rewarding path will be discovered and the period of waiting is over, or you will have to confront your fear of failure in the next 7 weeks or 7 months in order to plant anew and reap a more generous harvest in your future.
  • It is time to move through old fears and self-defeating thoughts of past failures whether they have been experienced in the past 7 weeks, 7 months or when you were 7 years old.
  • Assessment
  • Deliberation of choices, waiting for the right time and right place.

If ill defined by the Surrounding Cards in the layout it implies:

  • Deep-rooted blockages. 
  • Fresh start.
  • No opportunities.
  • No success.
