Do what Thou Will shall be the Whole of the Law
Hello everyone and welcome to the next installment of Tarot and the Occult. Today we will be looking at the Prince of Disk, who represents the Air Element in the Earth.
We have been through nearly all the Disks cards thus far, and we have seen that many of them have good meanings. Now that we are in major cards of the Disks, interpretations are a little more confusing and different.
I want to point out that I am only doing one post a week on the Tarot right now because of the holidays. I hope your are understanding of this, and if not, I’m sorry!
Keep in mind that I am going to be using the Thoth deck, so the design from the cards I go over are exclusively based off that Deck!
So with all that out of the way, let’s get into this awesome card!
Meaning of The Prince
The Prince is quite intuitive, and has a vivid imagination. He is in a meditative state, yet in control of his chaotic environment. Therefore he still has the strength that the Knight also has.
This card shows the importance of looking inward, and finding the answers within yourself. When this card is pulled, the Prince is trying to tell your that it is important to focus inward.
Whatever your issue is that your need to learn about, this card is trying to say to think about the issue, and the options your have to fix it. Only then should your continue forward with a solution.
I will also leave a video here so your can see what others say about the card! It’s good to see what other people are saying, that way your get a more balanced view of the card, and a better overall understanding.
Design of the Card
So one of the first things to look at is the crown that is on the Prince. The crown is a winged bull, which represents Taurus. This is the Earth like side of the Card, which belongs to the Disks, the Element of Earth itself.
In the back ground we see fruits and globes of Nitrogen. These represent both the Elements that the Prince of Disks belongs to, as Nitrogen is an air element.
Then we turn to the Chariot. The Chariot is the color of the Earth, which makes sense considering it is an earth card. There is some information involving the tree of life here too. If your want to know more about that, and the Tree of Life check out this link here!
Then we see that the prince is in a meditative state. This is the air part of the sign, which is more contemplative than the earth one, but his strength is shown, as the Earth symbol.
Then there is the orb in the hand of the prince, which represents the sun, and the prince rules over the agriculture and how it grows.
The Prince Rules
The first card that the Prince rules over is the Disks of Worry, the five of Disks. This shows a bit of worry within the Prince because he relies too much on his physical power
This causes great anxiety and it is a reminder that one must not focus solely on the physical realm of dealing with issues. It is important to think about issues as well, and try to come up with many solutions, picking from the one your think is best.
He also rules over the four of wands. The four of wands is a card of completion. This shows what happens when the Prince sees things through to the end. There is a sense of completeness in the task.
It helps the Prince realize that he should never get stuck in a one framed mind, where he believes there is only one way to do things and there is not other way.
Finally, this card also rules over the six of disks. The six of disk is a sign of success. We have already been over it, along with the five, and we have seen what this card means!
This card shows the success of the prince, and that he typically has great wealth follow him around due to his resourcefulness.
These three cards together show how important success is to the Prince, and that if one wants to succeed, it is possible when this card is pulled on them! However, it takes patience, intuitiveness, and a strong will that will allow them to continue forward!
Working with this Card
Working with the Prince of Disks is vital for anyone who gets the card. It is important that your take things one step at a time, and your really focus on the task at hand.
When your are dealing with the problem, be sure to think about the different outcomes that can come from it. If your do this, and your do it consistently, your are sure to succeed in your endeavors!
The Prince of Disks is a great card to see, in my opinion. The value of hard work, but also with using the mind is something that I find intriguing, and it should not be something one would want to run away from!
If your get this card, see it as an opportunity to be able to get great things done, as the Lord of Agriculture, the Prince of Disks sees to it that what he wants to accomplish gets done when he wants it done.
This interpretation comes from the design and ideas behind the Thoth Deck. It is a great deck with great designs, and was made by one of my hero’s, Aleister Crowley.
