Three of Disks : My in-depth YouTube Video on the Three of Disks of the Thoth Tarot deck may be viewed below:
(ii) Thoth Three of Disks
In the Three of Disks a pyramid with wheels is surrounded by the sea of Binah.
(iii) Rider Waite Three of Pentacles
(iv) Three of Disks & The Tree of Life
Associated with Binah in Assiah. Binah gives birth to ‘form’ and in the suit of disks this takes the ‘form’ of tangible results for ones focussed efforts.
(v) Shemhamphorasch Angels of the Three of Disks
Iehuiah: Capable of recognizing true hierarchy. Conscious of one’s place in the cosmic order. Sense of duty. Gives rise to scientific discoveries. Commitment.
Lehahiah: Obedience, discipline, sense of order. Life devoted to order. Accepts rigors of one’s destiny without protest.
(vi) Astrology of the Three of Disks
1. Second decan of Capricorn (11 – 20 degrees), ruled by Mars.
2. Mars in Capricorn
Mars = supplies energy, assertion, vitality.
Capricorn = ambition, practicality, making things tangible
Mars is Exalted in Capricorn (at his best) therefore these to have a very good relationship with each other which is favorable to the divinatory meaning of the card. The energy of Mars is CONSTRUCTIVE under the influence of Capricorn rather than destructive.
A Capricorns materialism benefits from the energy and activity of mars so this is a good card for indicating favorable investment of time and focus in ‘work’
(vii) Symbology of the Three of Disks
Main figure is a PYRAMID viewed from its apex.
Red Pyramid = the influence of Mars. The pyramid represents the idea and point of focus that allows something practical to born out of an idea or project.
3 wheels = the 3 Gunas
Mercury – AIR – SATTVAS (Top)
Sulphur – FIRE – RAJAS (Right bottom)
Salt – WATER – TAMAS (Left Bottom)
These indicate balance and harmony in this card.
Background = the ‘solidified’ sea of Binah, the mottled appearance showing its solidification. The ice has melted around the pyramid allowing it to ‘rise’ from the sea.
(viii) Quotes from the Book of Thoth
- “(The energy of Mars) … is constructive like that of the builder or engineer.” (p.213)
- “The base (of the Pyramid) is formed of three wheels, represented by Aleph, Shin, Mem: the three mother letters of the Hebrew alphabet.” (p.213)
