Thoth- 10 of Disks-Wealth
The Lord of Wealth-a hieroglyph of the cycle of regeneration.
The Truth about Self-The Trestle Board: #10-The Kingdom of Spirit is embodied in my flesh.
Prosperity, wealth, success in the world of finances and physical health. The Thoth 10 of Disks card is the sum total of the other 35 minor arcana since wealth is a synchronicity of mind, body and soul. This card indicates that by using your communication skills (Mercury symbols on top three coins) and linking them with your healing abilities (the caduceus on the bottom coin) while listening to your inspiration (the star coins) you will be able to manifest abundance (the three Hebrew symbols for abundance coins-bottom center).
The Astrological sign for this card is Mercury in Virgo. Mercury is the representative planet for communication and organizational skills. Virgo is the sign of prosperity and abundance manifested in a tangible way. The 10of Disks card indicates that all Ten of your conscious states of energy (The Ten Sephiroth of the Tree of Life) contribute to a balanced flow of healing, communication, and organizational skills all accumulating to active function on the physical plane. Your Spirit and body are manifesting abundance. Obviously this is a card of prosperity and also obviously, it will change, but for now eat, drink and be merry. We should also understand that Wealth becomes prosperity when we spend it as our wealth prospers others and thus ourselves which is a form of communication. To reiterate, MALKUTH is Earth that is also called the Active Word and/or Assiah.
It is the lone Sephira of this World. In the other Worlds of the Qabalistic Tree of Life, there are Three Sephiroth composing a Triangle, but Assiah/Malkuth stands alone, for it is the completion of all the other States of Energy Conscious. It is the Only Sensual Activity, of Creation. and it is now the end and seemingly nowhere to go. However, Mercury, who is Thoth in Crowley/Harris Tarot is not one to stand around and form a clot, like matter is known to do. So in the 10 of Disks we see the invocation of Mercury in the 10 coins.
- Kether- this top coin displays the astrological sign of Mercury.
- Chokmah- Here is the Magus, a symbol of Mercury, complete with the right angle positions of ATU 1.
- Binah-shows the alchemical symbol of Mercury.
- Chessed- illustrates Pa, the Enochian equivalent of the letter "B", which is the Hebrew letter Beth that is associated with the Magus/Mercury.
- Geburah-the letter Beth.
- Tiphareth- the name of Raphael in Hebrew. Raphael is the ruling Angel of Mercury.
- Netzach- Mercury's 8 pointed star.
- Hod- displays the hexagram within the hexagon, symbol of the Sun (all elemental forces are exhausted in Malkuth, the Sun is the only possibility of energy projection in the elemental impasse.)
- Yesod- is shown with the Pythagorean Tetractys (see below).
- Malkuth-Here be the Caduceus of Mercury. Harris artfully created it from the 3 mother letters of the Hebrew alphabet.
The tetractys (Greek: τετρακτύς), or tetrad, or the tetractys of the decad (a group of ten) is a triangular figure consisting of ten points arranged in four rows: one, two, three, and four points in each row, which is the geometrical representation of the fourth triangular number. As a mystical symbol, it was very important to the secret worship of Pythagoreanism. There were four seasons, and the number was also associated with planetary motions and music.
Malkuth is the sensual world, where "I" sight is subcontracted to various sensual devices, such as, the most commonly understood senses of taste-touch--hearing- and sight (truth be told there are 33 senses). However, to travel, the other Sephiroth without a body, but as an "I-dentity" is to feel nothing at all for you are the "I" sight! There is only One Sense to the I AM, and that is the sense of "I" sight, and all the "33 Senses" of the mundane body, are just Transformations of that One Sense of "I". To those who practice the Mysteries, there are considerably more senses "felt" than five...as many as 33 but that is not for this blog to describe, so if you are interested in a greater Wealth of Sensuality....start your journey up the Tree while you still support a physical body.
The Thoth Deck 10 OF DISKS, is called the 10 of Pentacles or 10 of Coins, in other decks. Crowley wished to show the stable motion that is required in a "Solid" world...the Spinning of a Disk. Where the Stability of a Discus is in its spin. I find this to be a brilliant insight (of which he had many) and agree with his philosophy. It is indeed the spiral "E-Motion" of our conscious self that balances our "Crystalline" outer Self; our life motion.
To repeat: THE 10 OF DISKS, is called the Lord of Wealth and is Mercury in Virgo. The Angels associated with this Decan are Hahaayah and Laviah. Again, this is MALKUTH in ASSIAH which is the influence of Malkuth in the Material world.
The Astrologers assign Mercury the God of commerce, as the ruler of the sign Virgo. Thus this placement is often called an embarras de richesses, as material gain here is so vast, that it often loses importance. This vast materiality is shown on the Thoth Deck Ten of Disks, as the whole Tree of Life, of 10 Sephira, as Disks decorated with the various symbols of Mercury. Truth, being, that the Whole Tree of Life is dedicated to this Manifested world; it is the Goal Achieved, by the Conscious of the Divine Creative. Our purpose as physical Spirits and or operators of the Master Power Tools, the Human body, is to establish, the "As above, so below”, i.e. The Great Work. However, a 10 is a 1-0, and shall return to the 1- Magus and begins again as the 0-Fool.
As energy that is Spiral (spirit), we are "everywhere and nowhere" at the very moment of "I"; a kind of diffusion into eternity. But with a "God-Mind" body (Hu-Man) I am the ability to focus on one "moment" in the Time Space continuum, giving me not only the "sense of presence" but the ability to immediately discriminate and/or discern my motion! In other words----"freedom of Choice" which simply means free to move by perspective chosen and not “natural evolution”.
The Mercury that I Am I finds it very fulfilling to be able to have a "sense of presence", and move about sensually while also evolving via perspective while fulfilling the will of Eheieh (Kether). To be able to do so is indeed a gift, an inheritance, and a Wealth which mere Ideas do not receive in the vast Mind of the Universal Divine Collective, until now!
It's time we realize that we are the "Sacred Place in Time Space"! We, as Spiral Entity (Spirits) have inherited the Earth, not because we are bad or lustful (The Lust cloud of Goddess- God-bio-protons built us after all!) We are the accumulated Wealth of Creation--made alive and sensual! The Divine Creative’s Self Experience (Self Awareness) built us as a Solution not a problem! We solve the problem of how to focus intense energy (motion) to a point in time space, to nullify entropy and be able to deconstruct and reconstruct right at the time and place of "seeing an error"! The “I am” is the Image maker, who can recreate image by using our "Child of God" union card, I-Magi-Nation number "10"!
For those who don't know, 10 is 1+0=1, in Qabalistic gematria which simply means The First Sephira - Kether, The Above, that we bring to the below! In other words, we don't have a goal, we are the Goal; an intimate bridge between the Creator and Creation! Therefore, we are Lust without the Need of result; being is the result of our Lust! Lust being the Divine Frenzy of vigorous energy that is the rhythmic vibration in all things! What makes this even better is that We, each alone, are our own Tree of Life; but this is not known to you until you have established a mercurial communication middle pillar with your Holy Guardian Angel/Tiphareth! Each of us must be the Magus that came to earth to magically control " a point in time", as the Sun of the Divine Creative.
