Thoth- 7 of wands-valour

Netzach, the 7th Sephiroth, on the Qabalistic Tree of Life is the Sphere of the 7's and the conscious energy of Love; as relating to the often misunderstood concept of "God is Love/ God is Sex." This misunderstanding of love and sex has to do with the very nature of our culture and that of the gods themselves.To the Greater Self, copulation is the dance of force and form.

In the Hermetic Qabalah, it is said that, "The Gods are the Creations of the Created...the Gods are the emanations of the Group Mind of Races, they are not emanations of Eheieh, the One and the Eternal." {Quoted from the: Qabalistic Tarot, by Robert Wang, page 100)

In essence, this reference to the Group Mind, that the Gods are of Netzach- Victory and Venus is the ruling Palace/Planet of Netzach, in fact, Venus presides over the entire Tree of life and this is graphically shown as the Glyph and/or the sign of Venus is superimposed over the Tree of Life. She is the "Womb with a View" and her Understanding of the "view", creates the entire Tree of Life. She has many, many names, from the Irish Sheela na gig to Venus. She is the Abyssal womb, that all things are born of.

This should open your eyes to your power, as the living Suns (Sons and Daughters) of the One Eheieh-Kether, you have the power to form potent forces into your own image to serve life expanding needs! Because your Personality begins in the Realm of the Divine I Am, you are a Personal God-Mind in your own right! And again; your sexual self is your Spiritual Nature! By using propaganda to divorce your personality from you sexuality, divides your body from your spirit. Parvati and Shiva dance in you, divide them, and you are an empty "dance hall".

Look, your homo sapiens sapiens body is the Animal God of Earth (and the symbol of Venus in shape). Every single living creature on earth, depends on what man does! If mankind decides that a species does not or no longer can serve them----------mankind destroys them. Even in our ignorance, we are responsible for our actions, as our ignorance alone will annihilate species and even the World we live on! Only Gods have such power in their domains!

In the Qaballah, you are composed of 10 aspects of the God-Mind, in an orgy of loving cooperation, these "frequencies and/or serpentine" forces of the One Mind create the Universe. You are Adam Kadmon (The Heavenly Human), the entire Tree of Life. Each of us are a Solar Psyche on every plane of intelligent energy, by inheritance. By acts of individual Valour we claim our inheritance.

These actions of Valour require the Will that is Spirit and the sexual energy of Spirit that drives passion to succeed in the deed. You may note in the people around you, those of low sexual energy, do not perform well in the challenges of life. It is time to realize that the Sexual Self is the Spiritual Self, the Solar Fiery Will that makes you alive---a type of Martial Lion force. This Sexual Self is as Leo and Mars together, as depicted on the Thoth Card.

To make the "Above as the Below", i.e. the Great Work, is to realized yourself as sole owner and ruler of your own animal god-body, and claim it as your "Sacred Place" in Time and/or the "honeymoon suite" of Binah and Chokmah-Parvati and Shiva. Being Divine Energy, you are infinite Space within, and within your Divine Unconscious Ocean of Self, are the dreams of being. Life is the Lucid Dream of the Divine Creative! Time is the stuff you create forms from, by mixing beginning and end- time- in a cauldron of thoughts, (Mind) heated by the vibrations of Lust/Passion, and shaped by Will-to-Be; you transform the illusion of being into a sensual reality and intimate dance with Creation itself. This, of course, is a simplistic representation, that is why the Tree of Life is so important to Know. The Tree of Life represents the complexity of how this Created Living Universal Self is done! By knowing yourself, you can then realized the original data you set aside in downsizing and know how to proceed with the Great Work of You!

WE ARE THE MANY AND THE ONE. Everything I see, is another way to be me!

The 7 of Wands, Valor (Lord of Valor) is attributed to Mars in Leo. The Angels of this Decan are: Mahashiah and Lelahel. Here, we have the influence of Netzach in the World of Pure Spirit (Atziluth).

Mars in Leo not only promotes courage and strength, but also a certainty of a fiery clash. However, victory in this fray is not certain. Thus, Crowley, using the Three Adept Wands of the Golden Dawn, crosses them with a crude fiery club, suggesting a disorganized and disordered of uncertain results. In short, the army is in disarray, a loss of confidence is implied and only individual Valour (Spelled-v-a-l-o-u-r-The Queen's English) will save the day! Hence, an attitude of "damn the torpedoes, full speed ahead", is to be adopted now.

the tarot of the spirit- seven of fire-courage

The Tarot of The Spirit- Seven of Fire-Courage, is also known as the "kite card". As a kite flying into higher winds, conditions intensify, and you must take further risks, as the reality of the past no longer works for you.

Represented on this card is a colorful 6 pointed star, surrounded by a 4 colored circular background. This background represents a potential balance of Spirit-Emotions-Mind and Body. The dark past is shown as the dark pyramid that encloses the star and therefore, represents outmoded structures. To signify the trapped spirit, are the 6 crossed wands. Here, the Spirit/Fiery Energy of Creation is trapped in yesterday's and not unless you release it to the now, will further creation be active in your life. Realizing the past is dead, and to move and/or transform is to be alive, takes personal courage. Both cards, Thoth 7 of Wands and the Tarot of The Spirit- Seven of Fire, have comparable divinations.

When the 7 of Wands-Valour or the Seven of Fire, is thrown during a reading, it implies that:

  • The querent is unsure of ideas, and must summon personal bravery and courage to instigate them. 
  • More confidence is needed to ensure victory. Here, responsibility must be taken up as the querent's standard, and they must stand alone, trusting their greater self to handle the most difficult of situations.
  • Here mettle is being tested, and only the inner courage of spirit has the necessary acceleration to push the querent through the line of resistance.
  • This card also shows how valuable you the querent, are to spirit, for if you were "weak" spirit wouldn't be testing your mettle.
  • Bravery.
  • Courage.
  • Fighting spirit.

If ill defined by the surrounding cards:

  • Indecisiveness.
  • ignorance.
  • Discrepancy between instinct and spirit.
