I. Analyze and describe 2 of Disks Thoth Tarot
The picture shows a giant snake carrying the image of a penis forming an eight-figure, swallowing its tail itself and creating an infinite sign. This animal exhibits constant change between the two different regions but still maintains the connection. This snake is a sacred entity that connects life and death, Gods and demons, animality and spirituality, and express development, intellectual-emotional change, death, and rebirth.
This card represents the original polarization, the basic pattern of archetypal forces: yin and yang (feminine and masculine). As the power of expansion and contraction, the principles that are often opposed to each other form a unified whole, they are described here as two wheels turning in opposite directions. They show the truth that underlies all beings, that life is constantly changing according to its stable rules and continuous change.
II. Interpretation of 2 of Disks Thoth Tarot
The number eight has a snake-shaped describes the continuous change of opposites and is, therefore, a condition of fluctuations and continuous changes. The intact elemental strength of Ace of Disks Thoth card has now been polarized in this card; 2 disks mean a turning point, change, distortion, volatility, revolution, transformation, and diversity. Ace expresses material through the “condensed form of emotions” present through the symbol of gold; this sense of pattern is separated in this card, so that change and distortion occur, even the Taoist symbol (yin/yang) also indicates that the opposites are only signs that are expressed out (Jupiter) of an individual, in an immutable archetype of itself (Saturn).
This card means a deep understanding of folk maxim, that everything has two sides. It almost refers to freeing yourself from all things that have only one face and exploring other necessary aspects for the game of power. It is like opening the horizon, realizing that day and night are two extremes (necessary) of a unified body, leading to a comprehensive experience.
The card represents changes that occur on their own. If a person does not rely on what appears to be “authenticated”, or at least familiar, he or she will feel that this period is rich and at least when looking back, will that person understands the benefits which it has brought to him/her. High mobility and a good side of selflessness are the best prerequisites to experience these stages in pleasure and comfort.
This “change” card in nature refers to a change of relationship as well as the variability in a relationship. The second may come from experience (a new breeze) so that two partners can actually exchange the roles they are carrying. Those who have high standards of emotional security can feel like going through these stages as a threat. But anyone who is open to new motivation will appreciate those times.
