The Truth about Self- the Trestle Board.
#9-In thought, word, and deed, I rest my life from day to day, upon the sure foundation of Eternal Being.
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot- 9 of Smilies.
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 First Sephiorth Kether whose Hebrew- God Name is-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 it leaves behind. Time to stand in your Solar Power as the Celestial Being of Light that you are!
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot- 9 of Smilies.
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot- 9 of Smilies depicts a Lady of Material Gain who is standing on her veranda overlooking a Mediterranean shoreline and enjoying the 9 Smilie's sunlight in a filmy negligee while smiling and holding up the peace sign. This card's artistic inspiration looks to come from the Rider-Waite-Smith 9 of Pentacles. There is no falcon; However, there is a nice full bowl of cherry tomatoes.
Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot-9 of Pentacles (RWS).
Here both Dang Olsen and Waite depicts the divination meaning of inheritance or material gain. The medieval theme of a Lady of inherited wealth and her falcon (RWS), implying royalty. She is out in the lush pentacle blooming landscape symbolizing continual growth and success as does the fertile Mediterranean scene of the Dream Tarot Card. This continual growth is also symbolized by the roses on the RWS Lady's gown. Everything is golden and warm, and gain is all around on both cards. The female figure subtly implies that the Goddess Venus is enjoying the fruitfulness of earth.
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 do what you love and love what you do, you will enjoy wealth and gain on the Spirit-Mind-Body planes of existence.
When the 9 of Disks/9 of Smilies 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.
