8 of Wands

Post by Serpentwand »

Drawn to see if there’s something useful I could do on the sex forum. It offers the potential of reaching a large audience not previously exposed to esoteric or spiritual ideas so I don’t want to abandon it prematurely.

The imagery of the card relates to electricity, light, the electromagnetic spectrum, the chakras, rapid flows of pure energy or life force in all three dimensions, thinking, neurons, inspiration, communication. Possibly I should concentrate my efforts on further exploring and posting about pure sensation and energy, my own experiences and insights, although I don’t yet know exactly where this might be leading.

The wands have actually mutated into lightnings on this card.

Electrify your audience on the sex forum then (I take it they are not the most shockable of people! :icon_mrgreen: ).

The idea of exposing them to esoteric or spiritual concepts seems interesting. Tantrism comes to mind...

Err, I haven’t actually got into any of that electrical shock stuff yet, but it must be quite popular as this item keeps selling out and they have to get another consignment in. :icon_e_surprised:

LOL. :icon_twisted: I’m finding the Thoth interesting but tricky, it’s very hard to settle on a definite interpretation and it’s causing me a lot of confusion and changes of mind. On the whole I think it may be that I could contribute something to that forum as suggested here but I’d also have to live with the suffering mentioned by the 9 of Swords. I’m not sure it’s really worth it. :icon_e_sad:

Yes, The Tower suggests I give up on the sex forum, at least for now. However, the results of a little concentration practice on the chakras strongly indicate this is what I should be doing next. :icon_e_surprised:

Yes, the Thoth is not as easy to read as, say, your typical oracle deck. By the same token, it invites deeper contemplation of an answer received due to its profound and its multi-layered character.

I can't tell you either if it's worth it. Participation in that forum definitely causes you some some kind of anguish, even though the latter mayself-inflicted in the final analysis.

There’s definitely something about the Thoth that keeps me coming back, it feels like it has some wisdom and meaning I don’t yet grasp.

I would say it's the very essence of uncle Al's life-long exploration of pretty much all spiritual paths that he had access to. Add to that Lady Frieda Harris' understanding of Anthroposophy, especially in its connection to projective geometry...

It is a truly multi-dimensional deck that reveals layer after level of meaning to the one dedicated to its study.

BTW, I once talked a bit about my encounter with the Thoth on my blog:
