The 6 of Cups-Pleasure, shows the influence of Tiphareth in the suit of Water. Tiphareth is the Sun of God (Beauty) and the number Six also represents the Sun. Thus the whole image of the Card is that of the influence of Sun on Water.Ths Sun is in the sign of Scorpio which is the basis of fertility in life.
In this card the depiction of dancing lotus stems, with blossoms gushing forth water into each golden cup, without overflowing implies well-being,harmony of natural forces without strain or effort. It is ease and satisfaction in harmony. Pleasure, in this sense, is not gratification of natural or artificial desires. It is Pleasure in the highest sense and yet it does emphatically represent the fulfillment of the Sexual Will (Will-to-Be) as shown by the ruling Sephira, sign, planet and element. The fierce energy of the Sun is in a harmonious state with water as a time of warming before the type of evaporation, a type of containment in motion such as of clouds, rain etc. that nurtures all life, mentally, emotional, spiritually and physically. A warm sensual harmony.
When this card is thrown during a reading the querent will experience in the period of six weeks or six months, the beginning of a wish,happiness, success, enjoyment. Commencement of gain in a steady increase of pleasure, But a commencement only. Sexual pleasure is also depicted here as in a higher state of harmonious union. Such as a Tantric would experience. Amiable and patient emotions will also be experienced..
If ill dignified, Affront, defective knowledge (perverted sexual knowledge) contention and strife arising from unwarranted self- assertion and vanity. Sometimes thankless and presumptuous.
If the student of Tarot vigorously studies the Six of Cups-Pleasure, by investigation the Sephiroth-Tiphareth, the Sign of Scorpio, The Sun , and the Element of Water (as an Alchemical element), they will find that this card is the actually the highest card in the Suit of Cups... For it is the Pleasure of Union, that is the God (Fire) and Goddess (Water) in Communion, that builds this entire Universe of Force and Form. In other words, the Big Bang is an orgasm of Energy that spreads forever outward in a joyous flow like a living water.. Now I know that most people will not seek to understand this Passionate flow of creation, but if you do, you'll be greatly rewarded with a Sun of your own.
