The Declarative Tarot-Layers of Presence-No. 9- Declaring Self.
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 that 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 (Unless you are DB Cooper), 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 (soul), mind, and Spirit 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 False ego and/or Shadow Self of the subconscious mind (the devil within) that tried to stone you with doubt and fears. Instead, you used diligent, and persistent performance to shatter the dark "tar and feathered" doubts that tried to keep your brain in the slavery of the Patriarchy with the active light of "I AM worthy of All".
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". But to be present, you must know yourself. You are the light in your life and the shadow. Time to stand in your Solar Power as the Celestial Being of Light that you are!
The Declarative Tarot-Layers of Presence-No.9-Declaring Self.
The Declarative Tarot-Layers of Presence-N0.9-Declaring Self cleverly illustrates the Celestial Being of Light, which is your true Soul/Solar identity. Here you begin to understand that your presence is enough. Your journey into self-awareness has become an understanding that you can ask important questions, without deciding what the answer should be. Now you are making choices that declare you are here to be Present as an active life force and to expand and liberate life from the bondage of the "human stain" (false ego made of word hypnosis who always needs to be right, even if what is right is a lie). Here we feel our oneness with all creation and understand that we are how the Divine Creative is intimate with its creations through the sensual- us who are the manifested "Celestial Selves of the One".
This card is about the Celestial You, your true presence all camouflaged by human flesh. Radiant and vibrant with Solar Presence, you share your powerful vibrancy with the worlds of the Multiverse. Your heart chakra radiates empathy, love, and compassion that you now feel for the living, and you realize we all belong to each other: every living thing is another way to be Self. We are all from the Family of Ra/The Sun and as the Son's and Daughters of the Divine Celestial I AM we support each other in time of success and need. You no longer feel the need to "fix" others, as all of us must learn to fix ourselves by the process of in-form-action, as all self- wisdom comes from 50% error and 50% correction. It truly is better to teach a person to fish rather than giving them one. We only know that they wish to correct themselves when they ask for assistance, otherwise we are intelligent enough to let them be. Your focus is now present in the powerful flow of knowledge that experience, and intuition that the Celestial Self brings to those who are Present in the moment. You also know that unless you make the subconscious conscious you will fear fate. When you make the consciousness complete without the foolishness of believing in separation of the One Mind, you become the living expression of the Divine Creative. Hence, carry your own light and shine as an example of personal sovereignty.
Therefore, all these symbols combined indicate that this is a person whose success was earned thanks to one's own skills of being Present as the Solar Being of Light: a passionate expression of I AM without need of result.
When the 9 of Disks/No, 9-Declaring Self, is thrown during a reading it implies:
- Inheritance and/or material gain, sometimes within 9 weeks or 9 months or the querent is experiencing it now for those time periods.
- A certain amount of Integrity, skill and talent has produced material gain and a sense of accomplishment.
- This is a purely material gain card, where talent and skill have come together in either a beginning stage of material gain or a good flowing gain on into wealth.
- That within the next 9 weeks or 9 months there is physical gain shown by organizing things and following your heart.
- You are to be dynamically assertive (electric male force) and magnetically receptive (female force) which is following your heart and what has deep meant for you.
- Financial luck.
If ill defined by accompanying cards, it implies it implies.
- It could mean a lack of discipline in material matters and the failure that comes with it.
- Empty plans.
