The Death card is sometimes described as a card of transformation. While often true, the hacking of the scythe across our land, our resources, our health, and our identities is felt globally. The reaper from the card always had its scythe directed toward Ten of Pentacles/Coins. The Wheel of Fortune was always nearby.
The classic Rider-Waite system and other decks connect Ten of Pentacles to family inheritance, wealth, accumulated resources, business environments, and financial strength. Meanwhile, the Wheel of Fortune often indicates huge. macrocosmic, outside forces at work that are beyond our personal control.
Things get interesting with Ten of Disks in the Thoth deck!
On Ten of Disks in the Thoth deck, Crowley himself writes,
"...acquired wealth, being inert, will be dissipated unless put to further use by devoting its power to obects other than mere accumulation....the image indicates the futility of material gain."
In the Hermetic Kabbalic Tree of Life, the Thoth Tarot System places Ten of Disks at the bottom due to it being the final card in the deck. It has nowhere to go unlike other cards.
Therefore, its only option is to dissipate and become reborn.
The two pairs of fives that create ten coins in the Marseille deck indiciate the highest form of resources, earned through hardship, sometimes trickery, and often dominance. That highest form is now being cut away so something different can grow.
Marseille systems often lean into numerology. The number ten is an ending and a beginning.
When you deoncstruct the number 10 you get the following formula...
10 is 1 plus 0 equals 1.
I am interested in recurring cards or messages you received if you are a card reader, astrologer, astrologist, charm caster, inuitive, psychic, or medium. Share your thoughts in the comments if you want! Also, tell a Capricorn that they bring so much good to the world if you know one. Strong humans, they are!
Or, tell the same to a living, breathing sea goat if you are acquianted with any.
