The Tarot Card Selection for the month of August:

The 10 of Disks-Wealth:

Wealth, Stability, Material Prosperity and riches…

(Book of Thoth-Crowley)

The Ten of Disks is called Wealth. Here again is written this constantly recurring doctrine, that as soon as one gets to the bottom one finds oneself at the top; and Wealth is given to Mercury in Virgo. When wealth accumulates beyond a certain point, it must both become completely inert and cease to be wealth, or call in the aid of intelligence to use it rightly. This must necessarily happen in spheres which have nothing whatever to do with material possessions, as such. In this way, Carnegie establishes a Library, Rockefeller endows Research, simply because there is nothing else to do.

But all this doctrine lies behind the card; it is the inner meaning of the card.

There is another view to consider, that this is the last of all the cards, and therefore represents the sum total of all the work that has been done from the beginning. Therefore, in it is drawn the very figure of the Tree of Life itself. This card, to the other thirty-five small cards, is what the twenty-first Trump, The Universe, is to the rest of the Trumps.

(From the Angel Path web site.

Lord of Wealth talks not only about material wealth and its appropriate use, but about the inner wealth and resources that we all have. This is a card that teaches us that the harvest we gather in our lives is the end result of all that we have put into living – and more importantly, how we have used the riches at our disposal.

If this card comes up in an everyday reading, it re-assures that financial and material matters are proceeding well, and that there is no cause for concern.

Affirmation: I am endlessly wealthy.

The I-Ching for August:

(Taken directly from Brian Browne Walkers The I Ching or Book of Changes. A guide to life’s turning points.)

4. Meng/ Youthful Folly

“Even the foolish can attain wisdom by modestly following the sage.”

Folly is a characteristic of youth: those who have had little experience generally exhibit little wisdom. This is true of us in a spiritual way as well; in comparison to the sage we are “babes in the woods.” The hexagram Meng, counsels us to utilize the I Ching as a lantern so that we may survive our youthful folly and travel safely through the woods of life.

There is no shame in seeking guidance in life. A child is eager to be shown the way by his parents and teachers, and we are wise to recognize that in spiritual terms we are akin to children…

The 4. Meng./Youthful Folly changes to-

15. Ch’Ien /Modesty.

“The Creative acts to empty what is full and to offer abundance to what is modest.”

This hexagram suggests that a deepening of one’s modesty now is a sure means of improving the situation. There is no power so great as modesty for compelling the assistance of the Sage-nor one as hindering as immodesty. Those in high places who retain their modesty are loved by all and continually prosper, those below who cultivate modesty inevitably rise on the strength of their merits, without making enemies along the way.

But what does modesty mean? Certainly it entails a refusal to boast or act imperiously with others, even in small ways. But beyond this steadfast humility it also means that our effort to discern what is right and then do it is constant; we do not work against ourselves, and we do not indulge in doubts about the wisdom of correct conduct. This unwavering commitment to what is correct might be called the modesty before the sage.

The Message I am hearing from the Month of August is:

Overall the Message the 10 of Disks Brings us is that when we get to the top we are back at the bottom again, we are ceaselessly progressing on our path, deeper and deeper into our hearts and further and further into our divine wisdom. The 10 of Disks in the Material World represents stability and it’s a reflecting back at all the hard work it took to get to this place, representing stability and long term foundation building income. On an internal level we are reminded that energy requires movement, we are developing inner wealth and wisdom by gaining clarity into financial matters, doing the uncomfortable writing and looking at our numbers. This helps us to grow spiritually, for when we are at the top of the hill we need but look up to the next hill, when we rest or become too comfortable we stagnate and could risk taking a loss. This does not mean to lose yourself in material work, it means to glance inside at your internal wealth. Be grateful for what you have accomplished, give yourself a pat on the back that you made it this far, take a rest and prepare for the next journey.

The I Ching reminds us that we are not in charge or control that the Sage (The Universe) is our provider. If we are humbled and open amazing things are wide open for us.


Reading for the Month of July General:

The Prince of Wands: (From the Book of Thoth.)

The Prince of Wands represents the airy part of Fire, with its faculty of expanding and volatilizing. He rules from the 21st degree of Cancer to the 20th degree of Leo. He is a warrior in complete armor of scale mail, but his arms are bare on account of his vigour and activity. He wears a rayed crown surmounted by a lion’s head winged, and from this crown depends a curtain of flame. The wand of Power and Energy, while with his other arm he reins the lion which draws his chariot, the chariot which is fortified by a wheel radiating flame. He rides upon a sea of flames, both waved and salient.

The moral qualities appropriate to this figure are swiftness and strength. But he is sometimes inclined to act on impulse; sometimes easily led by external influences; sometimes, especially in trifles, a prey to indecision. He is often violent, especially in the expression of an opinion, but he does not necessarily hold the opinion about which he is so emphatic. He states a vigorous proposition for the sake of stating it. He is in fact very slow to make up his mind thoroughly on any subject, but always sees both sides of every question. He is

essentially just, but always feels that justice is not to be attained in the intellectual world. His character is intensely noble and generous. He may be an extravagant boaster, while slyly laughing both at the object of his boast and at himself for making it. He is romantic, especially in matters of history and tradition, to the point of folly, and may engineer “stunts” or play elaborate practical jokes. He might select some inoffensive nobody, and pursue him for years with every weapon of ridicule) as Swift tormented the unhappy Partridge, all without the least animus, ready to give the shirt off his back, should his victim be in need. His sense of humor is omnivorous, and may make him a mysterious figure, dreaded without reason by people who actually know nothing about him but his name-as a symbol of Terror. This is due to the influence of the last deacon of Cancer upon this card. One of his greatest faults is pride; meanness and pettiness of any kind he holds in infinite scorn. His courage is fanatically strong, and his endurance indefatigable. He is always fighting against odds, and always wins in the long-the very long-run. This is principally due to his enormous capacity for work, which he exercises for its own sake, “without lust of result”; perhaps his haughty contempt for the world at large-which however coexists with profound and ecstatic respect for “every man and every woman” as “a star”-is responsible for this.



In the I- Ching, the airy part of Fire is represented by the 42nd Hexagram, Yi, which signifies addition, increase. Full of virtue, and confident therein, he contemplates work of stupendous scope, often with the idea expressed in line 5: “with sincere heart seeking to benefit all below”. In this he may achieve immense success. But this course is fraught with commensurate danger. “We see one to whose increase none will contribute, while many will seek to assail him. He observes no regular rule in the ordering of his heart”. (line 6) This peril avoided, there come “parties adding to the store of its subject ten pairs of tortoise shells whose oracles cannot be opposed-Let the King employ them in presenting his offerings to God….”

The Prince of Wands which I picked out of a deck of 78 cards is the perfect representation of July since he rules to the 21st degree of cancer to the 20th degree of Leo. It is interesting how very powerful the cards really are.
