68-Five of Disks – Upright Thoth Deck

Your Chosen Card – Five of Disks Upright Thoth Deck

When upright, the Five of Disks traditionally refers to two people who remain very much in love despite any material troubles they must confront. They take seriously their marriage vows: ‘for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part.’ The lovers walking in a snowstorm pass the church where they got married. Despite declining finances and ill health, they remain devoted to each other in a committed relationship. This card indicates the importance of love and mutual support in weathering life’s storms. It shows a willingness to face hardships with a partner in a mutually supportive way.

Keywords Upright: Spiritual solace, seeking financial assistance, mutual support, devotion, pure love, affection, commitment, lovemaking, affinity, concord, reconciliation, married life for better or for worse; ‘no matter what happens, we’re in this together.’

Timing: 0 Taurus–10 Taurus. Tropical, 21 April–30 April. Sidereal, 14 May–24 May.
Astrology: Nimble and clever Mercury in the first decan of earthy Taurus, realm of the Waite Knight/Thoth Prince of Disks (Air of Earth) and the Hierophant (Taurus). Mercury is linked to the Magician. [The church window is a reference to the Pope and the sacrament of marriage. Fickle Mercury brings instability to the earthy solidity reflected in Taurus and the Knight of Disks, thus exposing the marriage to fluctuations in its material security.]
Number Symbolism: 5 – instability, disruption, crisis, loss, tension, conflict.

Crowley/Thoth: Worry, disquiet, material trouble, unemployment, loss of money, strain, inaction, financial worries.

Creative Tarot: The tarot reader continued to defy my expectations. She didn’t read the cards by the book. Nor did she sugarcoat anything. She pointed to the Knights—dignified warriors when they are fighting valiantly, but bringers of chaos when they are not directed intelligently—who seemed to be waging war against minor characters. The Tower was there, sure, but it was contained safely in the “Hopes and Fears” position of the Celtic Cross spread, not actually in play. “It’s like you’re drowning in a birdbath,” she told me. “Stand up, it’s just a birdbath.”
