Your Chosen Card – Ace of Disks Reversed Thoth Deck
When reversed, the Ace of Pentacles (golden coins) suggests that something may have gone awry in your quest for material well-being. Perhaps you are missing a significant opportunity to improve financial security, or maybe your attitude toward wealth and prosperity needs adjusting. In the myth of King Midas, his unbridled greed for the acquisition of material goods leaves him devoid of human contact. Now may be a good time to ponder Buddhas teachings about nonattachment. Interestingly, the lilies on this card in the Llewellyn Classic Tarot resemble the lotus, a Buddhist symbol of nonattachment; the lotus has the ability to rise above the mire of the swamp and produce an object of beauty.

Complete Book of Tarot: As mentioned, the Golden Dawn occultists made use of Kabbalah to assign meanings to tarot cards. In particular, they paired the meanings of the numbered Sephiroth (emanations) of the Tree of Life with cards of the same number. The Tree of Life is oriented in space like the Hanged Man, growing upside-down. The initial spark of creation takes place at the top of the tree in the Sephirah Kether (‘the Crown’), numbered one. The roots of the tree lie in heaven, and its ultimate fruit manifests at the bottom in Malkuth (‘the Kingdom of Earth’), numbered ten. Keywords for the Tree of Life include:
