SIX OF CUPS-PLEASURE.
Astrologically this card represents the Sun in Scorpio.
To the Qabalist this card is Tiphareth ( Beauty) in Briah (the mental world) Briah is considered a "watery world" which means it acts as water with currents, eddies and flow so Tiphareth in the Watery World of Briah, means the beginning of pleasure.
Scorpio is a sign of hidden qualities, it is magnetic (female) and discriminatory [many Scorpio's can become harshly judgmental] and the scorpion may sting where the Will directs. The Sun activates Scorpio as it does the Oceans on earth, eddies,and currents swirl and dance because of the Focused Force of the Sun and Pleasure commences. The Goddess ( Binah-water) and The God (Chokma-Sun) Dance in Pleasurable Union. At least, that is the Esoteric explanation.
In our daily reality, this card is considered one of the best cards in the pack and it stands for well-being, harmony of natural forces, without effort or strain just ease and satisfaction. This is not vulgar pleasure, brought on by artificial stimulants, such as alcohol or drugs, but the deep inner pleasure understood in the highest sense of Being. I have reached this state many times in my Tantra Yoga work, and I call it the inner orgasm that never stops . It is the Joyful Communion of Creation Itself! When this card is thrown, the querent will experience or is experiencing joy, deep pleasure of memories, of happiness like that of very young children who are the Happiness that Came to be in communion with all of creation. Inside all of us is the Original Joy of Being and such is this card. It is not about goals, achievements, or getting what one wants----its about the Orgasmic Flow of Self Awareness that has created the All. Spirit is Joyful Love that drives Force and Form into united expression. "The Child of Goddess and God Union" is Us. When you feel the Sun Rise over the Ocean of YOU-----you'll know such joy! Great Card!
Some people believe that pleasure is a fleeting thing, "It won't last", says the fearful of discomfort. But this is the "Inner Pleasure" that Drives Creation in this Universe. It is the underlying foundation of ALL! It does indeed last, but here comes the caveat, only when ones mental, emotional , spiritual and physical states of conscious energy are in harmony . So this pleasure can be like atmosphere of Earth, where the Sun heats the Ocean into clouds (when our emotions become overcast by survival thinking) and we feel less joy and more worry. We then rain, (cry over our troubles) and then the Sun comes out again. As we all know, the Sun never left us-----but change must happen if Life is to continue. Knowing that inner Sun of Pleasure is always with us whether we see it or not, helps us to remember that we are the Joy who came to be human and Human is a Spiritual experiment in Pleasure!
