The New Orleans Voodoo Tarot- Santeria-Earth-Olodumare, represents the Thoth Ace of Disks. In the religion of Santeria Olodumare is the Creator/Divine Creative. Just like the Triple God and Triple Goddess, Olodumare is also a trinity of three distinct spirits, who are shown descending upon the Earth, in a tear like image, to create Obatalá, a patron of peace and purity. Sorrow plays apart in the creation myths of all religions, and in this card, the original human was sanctioned by Olodumare (DNA splicing) who turned against Olodumare due to pride. Hence, sorrow engendered by having to destroy and recreate man. Not unlike the myth of Noah. However, before it was profaned by "embellishment", the creation of the Homo Sapiens, by the Annunaki, as written by Sumerian scribes, who live with the Annunaki that were seen as Gods because they came from the sky (Annunaki means "those who from the sky came") and DNA spliced their genes with mammalian genes of earth to create a race of "slaves" and/or workers and the wars that happen later that "overthrew" the rule of the Gods are all documented on over 500 clay tablets, all written in cuneiform which has been successfully translated by Zecharia Sitchin, one of the archeologists that discovered them.
The Great Mother, creates, and destroys that which she creates, also engendering sorrow. There is no happiness in destroying one's children or watching your beautiful creations, become monsters in their own eyes. So as happens to all who create and watch the return to chaos that happens to all the created (Second law of Thermodynamics, " Everything proceeds from order to disorder").
When thrown in divination, Olodumare implies:
- The root sense of materiality.
- The presence of all material possibilities.
- From souring wealth to crushing poverty. (From order to disorder)
As mentioned, Kether is symbolized as the Point, The Crown and the Swastika, and if you have been following the blogs, you know the point to imply completeness unto itself, without dimension or external definition.
- The Point is also attributed to the number 1 which mathematically has the potential for all other numbers.
- The Crown symbolizes the Holy Guiding Spirit to which we may aspire.
- The Swastika, is actually a Buddhist symbol for the "First Swirlings" of manifestation and represents the swirling motion around the Point that emphasizes self-contained motion.
To reiterate, the Four Aces are the Root Force of the Alchemical Four elements.
The Ace of Disks is the Root Force behind physical manifestation that governs the motion within the movement of Matter,represents the influence of Kether, "The First Swirling" in matter or the World of Assiah, as Qabalists call it. It is a card of materiality, but not necessarily good or evil, nor is it necessarily wealth.
The card is in the Green of Spring, new growth, and the Aeon of Isis, the mother of Form who is normally shown as Emerald green, but in the Ace of Disks the Aeon is shown in spring green after the Resurrection of Osiris as Horus; Horus being the New Aeon.
The Wings represent the Four Archangels whose powers balance each other and create stability through the Four Elements. The six wings also represent the number of the Sun and the implied union of Earth and Sun that creates the living organic organism that is the living earth.
As we know atoms to swirl, and planets to revolve, we know that matter is a swirling motion and not a static one at all. Therefore. the card implies swirls and movement within a stable image or as Zoroaster Stated, “rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud." Implying swirling frequencies of energy that cause motion/vibrations.
The Greek words for “to the mark the beast" appear in the center of this card. The number 666 also shows in this card, this all shows the Earth to be the world of the Animal, as its highest form. The God-Mind, which is the human;Hu-is Mandarin, meaning God, and The Hindu Manas- meaning Mind., has changed this domination by expanding the mammalian predator by Genetic Manipulation of “fallen Angels”/ alien astronauts and the Animal DNA of earth. Thus, the human body is a G.M.O, for the purpose of advanced evolutionary work of the Orion Nephilim; The Great Work, which is to bring the "above and the below" into perfect union has been established on earth as the homo sapiens sapiens, because the Orion Solar Soul is now the operator of the human body. Therefore, the Beast once seen by some as a lowly thing, has become by some mischievousness of the Divine Creative has proclaimed the Beast to be worthy of Angelic status. I don't presume to question Divinity in this, I just exalt in my inheritance. Doing my best to be the "As above, so below",i.e.,The Mind of the Macrocosm united with the Mind of the Microcosm. To even get a glimpse of what I am getting at here, is to read the books by Zecharia Sitchin. It behooves you to remember, we have been lied to by the Patriarch who has possessed our brains with his indoctrination techniques. It's time to claim your cosmic inheritance.
According to Crowley, the central Hieroglyph is that of "the chosen priest and apostle of infinite space," (The Husband),"The prince-priest the Beast"< [Liber Al. I.15.]. Thus, the Phallus is shown as the central symbol of this card, as that is the symbol of Tetragrammaton (YHVH"rebounding, whirling forth, crying aloud,") again showing the Sol (Phallus) Luna (Yoni) union of reflected light. Crowley took this card as his personal Hieroglyph, so deep study is required to understand his metaphysical and subtle meanings implied by this card. Purchasing his books and reading them over and over is this author’s suggestion, along with those of Zecharia Sitchin, the Archeologist who translated the cuneiform tablets of the Sumerians. You can find all his books on Amazon.com.Zecharia Sitchin
Zecharia Sitchin is an internationally acclaimed author and researcher whose books offer evidence that we are not alone in our own solar system. One of a handful of scholars able to read the Sumerian cuneiform tablets, he has combined archaeology, ancient texts, and the Bible with the latest scientific discoveries to retell the history and prehistory of mankind and planet Earth. His trailblazing books have been translated into more than twenty languages; his first one, an oft-quoted classic, celebrates the thirtieth anniversary of its publication. A graduate of the University of London and a journalist and editor in Israel for many years, he now lives and writes in New York.
