I. Analyze and describe 8 of Disks Thoth Tarot
In this card, the order is re-established because the disks are arranged in an orderly pattern like the flowers or fruits of a large tree growing on fertile soil. The chaos of the previous card seems to have been overcome because the fruits are placed in the form of Populus “doing without doing”, “achieving results through seclusion”, as Crowley writes, “the waiting for the harvest of the sower”- the sorcerers call this” power through inaction”. Crowley commented, “Virgo is the secret seed of Life, and also the Virgin of the Earth waiting for the Penis which are the Plow and the Population, the recovery of the secret of Energy into the abandoned Earth”.
