The Notoria tarot in Light-9 of Pentacles
God who humbles the proud.
The Thoth 9 of Disks Card is also called Lord of Material Gain. This colorful Thoth card represents gain on all levels that are physical and that influence the physical; Hence, emotional gain, spiritual gain, mental gain, and physical gain. However, this is also Venus in the house of Virgo implying there is a certain lack of overt feelings.
This card is about everything you have worked so hard for is now fruitful. By making smart decisions and managing your money and time smartly, you can now enjoy the fruits of your labor. It is an enjoyable time to treat yourself to something decadent.
Everyone knows that money doesn't fall from the sky, and that effort is often required to achieve success. The Thoth 9 of Disks suggests hitting the mark. A bull’s eye card which shows you are financially right on the mark because your heart, mind and soul are in union. In other words, you are creatively focused and have enabled gain on all levels of determined and persistent performance. You are successful because you haven't listened to the Shadow Self of the Unconscious mind (the devil within) that tried to stone you with doubt and fears. Instead, you used diligent, and persistent performance to shatter the dark doubts with active light.
On the Thoth card the blue circle symbolizes wisdom linked with our loving nature, (the pink circle), in a creative way (which is the green circle). This card also shows us that by utilizing our dynamic creative male energy (shown as the top coins with the planetary signs of Saturn, Mars, and Jupiter) we shall experience such gain.
- Saturn is the sign of the helmeted warrior who knows what his limits and boundaries are and paying attention to detail.
- The feathered cap symbol of Mars indicates that energy, vitality, and assertion are a vital part of gain.
- Jupiter, the King, reminds us that flexibility, being open to opportunity, expands our leadership skills that are also needed to experience material gain. But this is only half of gain, to be complete we need the feminine power of Maid, Mother and Crone, which are represented by the lower three coins:
- The Maid is the youthful bare headed feminine figure that is the power of Venus and reminds us to follow our heart.
- The coin with the Feminine figure that has a Queen's hat (Mother) is Mercury and reminds us that communication skills and nurturing leadership skills are needed to experience material gain.
- The feminine figure with the Crescent Moon headdress is the Wise Woman (Crone) who reminds us that we must be true to ourselves and to be authentic in our actions.
The Thoth 9 of Disks card represents Yesod in Assiah and/or the influence of Yesod in the Material World. Yesod, meaning foundation, in the material world and therefore, this influence is very favorable for amassing things, but with Venus in Virgo, there is a lack of celebratory feelings accompanying this great efficiency.
This efficient amassing of material things is shown by the design complexity of Crowley's 9 of Disks. As he states in his book of Thoth, “The Disks are arranged as an equilateral triangle of three, apex upwards, close together; and surrounded at some distance by a ring, six larger disks in the form of a hexagram. This signifies the multiplication of the original established Word by the mingling of 'good luck and management'." Which says it all for this card. The "original established Word" is that of the Hebrew- God Name-Eheieh, meaning "I Will Be". Hence, you exist because you are supposed to and to fulfill your purpose is "to be present". You are the light in your life and the shadow. Time to stand in your Solar Power as the Being of Light that you are!
The Notoria Tarot in Light-9 of Pentacles
Invocation of the Angel Nanael: Cognovi, Domine, quia aequitas judicia tua: et in veritate tua humiliasti me.
The Notoria Tarot in Light 9 of Pentacles illustrates the God name Nanael as an Angel who is taking the Holy Eucharist in communion. Being that the Eucharist is a golden sun and radiant implies this is a force or power rather than an unleavened bread. This golden force enables us to contemplate the Divine, leading us to become a veritable tabernacle that will spur us onto communion, inspiring us and allowing us to make tough decisions and prompting us to meditate, do research, and study. If we show excessive pride, this energy will become stern and rigorous that will lead to work stopping slowly, stifled by our egos.
