The Tarot- 4's all bring perfection, realization, completion, and making a matter settled and fixed.
The 4 of Wands and 4 of Fire are no exception, for here is the Lord of Perfected Work. As for "making a matter settled...", the act of cunnilingus, the Latin term for sucking, licking or kissing the cunnus/Yoni is rarely shown on Hindu Temples. Yet, the act of Felicio, its male counterpart, is often depicted in the temples of Konarak and Kajuraho. This is because of energy flow and not male misogyny. The truth being the Male Lingam is an ejaculatory of his Root or Basel chakra energy which is of Aries and if ejaculated in the feminine "Maid yoni"-her mouth- it gives "birth to mind children".Whereas, the female vagina- "Mother Yoni", is a receptive device, a Grail while the male mouth emits only sound,not chakric energy.
What is preferred in the Tantric rituals is the "Crow position" and/or the "69" as moderns have made it known.This is because the 69 "reverses" polarity of both the male and female and causes certain health benefits and feelings of "flushness" and harmony. However, there is a certain joy and sensual eroticism to cunnilingus that could complete a sexual encounter, especially after male has already ejaculated in said yoni. For the mixing of male linga and female yoni fluids is said to be a magic elixir and used in the original "Holy Mass" practice in the ancient Greek temples of Artemis.
Also the sense of taste, is a sexual sense. By tasting the male semen, and he tastes good to her, a woman can tell if he is a balanced male and will harmonize well with her, this is because his semen is full of nutrients, straight from his blood. Whereas, female vaginal fluids are of "the Sea" and her taste will not tell a male if her chemical Ph will balance with his. Only her menstrual blood will do that. This is also another reason why there is a new resonance of Archaeologists, who think we evolved from amphibians and not apes. This agrees with the Dogon of Mali, who have for many generations, stated that we come from the Nomo, who came from the sky area of Sirius, and were like "salamanders".
Now if your flesh-0-phobias haven't made you faint in a Victorian display of disgust, you may really be shocked by the Knowledge seeking Greeks who started the Gnostic Sects and truly believed that the human form was indeed sacred as the image of god and that "holy mass" was the union of male and female, not unleavened bread and bad wine.
The Gnostics, a general term for those of Gnostic schools and sects that arose in Egypt and Syria, during the early days of Christianity, mixed and consumed male semen and vaginal juices for magic rituals and cited that the "eating of semen" and "drinking the Wine " (mixture of male and female bodily fluids) was the real holy mass. This, plus the fact that Gnostics insisted it was the pursuit of knowledge rather than the belief in "blind faith", that was the spiritual goal that made them heretics in the church fathers eyes.

Milo Manara's 4 of Fire card is about:
Astrologically he attributes Venus in Aries to this card, which leads to the need to manipulate love or money, with authority.
The Thoth Tarot 4 of Wands is called-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 force of Will. Thus all being comes from willed sexual acts.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 and female, 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 make docile slaves.
THOTH TAROT 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.
. Attributed to the Four of Wands-Completion, is the planet Venus in the sign of Aries. The angels of the Decan are Nanael and Nithal. In Mythology, Venus and Aries are husband and wife.
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 is to realize that the zodiac is the mundane or Root/Base chakra of Chokma, as it appears in the lowest of Four Worlds; Assiah-the active world. Thus, the 4's represent the Totality of that which the planetary signs refer. Sexual completion.
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 Serphiroth Chesed- Mercy and is now a solid system such as ; Order, Law and Government.
Venus in Aries, also removes some of the volcanism of Aries-Mars, and indicates that one can't establish one's work without tact and gentleness.
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 yellow rimed circle. To show balance, the four flames are doubled, suggesting the feminine and masculine balance of the 4's. Also being 4, there is no attempt to expand, the original will is complete,What was sought is now completed and so entropy will soon begin,as the second law of thermodynamics - from order to disorder, is the flow of energy in this universe.
When the 4 of Wands or 4 of Fire 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.
- The 4 of Wands also implies that ideas are firmly established and proved by their flourishing and it is time to move forward.
- The querent is manifesting a new destiny by acting on a sense of direction, supplied by inner Self Knowledge that is forming a new identity.
- Here we see celebration and reward after laborious completion of an enterprise.
If ill defined:
- Over estimation of one's self.
