The Thoth 4 of Wands Represents-Completion.
For those who aren't familiar with spirit, and the Sexual Self, they are one and the same. Spirit is the fiery creative energy of Sex, passion, ardor, assertiveness etc. It is the Will to Create. Thus all being comes from a sexual act. The union of atoms comes from force and form getting together as Electric male energy and Magnetic female energy. Also the wholeness, health and wealth of being comes from the union of male expressive and female receptive, Force and Form.
To separate spirit from sexuality is pure ignorance based on fear producing divisionism and falsehoods that create dysfunction and greatly confused and thus docile slaves. All of our Soul's are androgynous, a combination of Anima (Female) and Animus (Male) aspects of the Psyche. Therefore, the sex of a species is not your identity. We are all bisexual. So stop identifying yourself and others as a sex. That is a propaganda tool to divide you and therefore, conquer you. We all are "another way to be each other". I AM Spirit and that is the Primary name of all of us-I AM and the "What I AM" is Spirit-The Will of the One.
THOTH 4 OF WANDS-Completion:
To repeat, Chesed, the 4th Sephiroth, is Mercy, and is known in Qabalah as the Demiurge or "Lesser Creator" and gives rise to "form and light". This also makes Chesed both masculine and feminine, as Light is the expression of masculine and form is the receptivity of the Feminine, Thus, Chesed and Geburah are really "two sides to one coin". So here we compare Chesed -Mercy and Geburah-Severity or Strength, to the two arms of a human, as one gives and one takes away.
The Four 4's all bring perfection, realization, completion, and making a matter settled and fixed.
The 4 of Wands and 4 of Mistletoe are no exception, for here is the Lord of Perfected Work. Attributed to the 4 of Wands-Completion, is the planet Venus in the sign of Aries. The angels of the Decan are Nanael and Nithal.
The 4 of Wands is Chesed influencing the realm of Atziluth; the Realm of Pure Spirit.
The swift active force of Aries- Mars, is activating the Love and Luxury of Venus. This placement in an astrological reading would be implying a warm, brief romance, or warm fleeting feelings. But in Tarot, we must be aware of the Placement on the Tree of Life. There is a combination of the zodiacal and the Sephirotic meanings to consider.
First and foremost, one is to realize that the zodiac is the mundane or root/base Chakra of Chokma, as it appears in the lowest of 4 Worlds; Assiah-the active world of in-form-action. Thus, the 4's represent the Totality of that which the planetary signs refer.
Venus in Aries, being the outer attribute of the card while the inner attribute is Chesed forces, the pure four (Fire, Air, Water, Earth), in the world of Yod-Fire. So what we have in the 4 of Wands is Completion of the process initiated by the Upper Trinity, or Supernal Triangle. Here, the manifestation promised by "Will to Form" (Binah) has taken place in Jupiter-Chesed; The Father who resides below the Abyss. Thus this is a dominating influence on all the following cards. as it is the highest idea that can be understood intellectually of the element it represents.
Chesed is the Demiurge, who is the First Sephiroth below the Abyss, making him the Lord of all Manifested Active Power. The original will of Chokmah- Wisdom and Binah-Understanding is now manifest in the 4th Sephiroth Chesed- Mercy and is now a solid system such as ; Order, Law and Government.Venus in Aries, also calms some of the volcanism of Aries-Mars, and indicates that one can't establish one's work without tact and gentleness.
When examining The 4 of Wands-Completion, we see the wands headed by Rams, both signs of Chesed (Father-God Amoun-Ra) and Aries, ending in the Dove of Venus. The completed and limitation of the original work is shown by the actively spinning yellow rimed circle. To show balance, the 4 flames are doubled, suggesting the feminine and masculine balance of the 4 Universal Forces. Also being 4, there is no attempt to expand, the original will is complete, and so entropy will soon begin. From order to disorder, is the flow of energy in this universe.
Number 4 in numerology means the stable structure, based on equality – like a square with its equal sides. It is very practical and materialistic number, which brings the need for reliability in people’s life. If the number 4 begins to appear frequently in your life, it means that it’s time to settle down.
The Tarot of Druids- 4 of Mistletoe, depicts a Celtic Elder, dressed in the red cloak of Aries, flourishing a branch of the Sacred Mistletoe before a young Celtic maid. She is smiling approval at the offer. To the Celts, Mistletoe was a sacred plant whose white berries were believed to be the semen of the Sun god Tarantus. Hence, there was some implied sexuality in the offer. The 4 of Mistletoe therefore, represents the union of Aries, and Venus, along with the implied mundane meanings of the 4 of Wands.
When the 4 of Wands or 4 of Mistletoe is thrown during a reading:
- It is the key to spiritual and holistic completion.
- It suggests that the querent is experiencing the completion of something and experiencing the desire to begin something new.

- Here we see celebration and reward after laborious completion of an enterprise.
- Unexpected opportunities.
If ill defined by surrounding cards:
- Lack of ideas.
- Problems at work.
- Over estimation of one's self.
