Thoth Deck Tarot: ACE OF CUPS & THE PRINCESS OF CUPS

The Ace of Cups, is the root of the powers of Water. This is Water, in its most arcane form, Life-Fluid , (Dew of the Mother) symbolically represented as Water, Blood or Wine.
The Ace of Cups is the compliment to the Ace of Wands, as is the Sun to the Moon and the Lingam to the Yoni and represents the essential form of the Holy Grail (The Womb with a view).
The Great Mother, Binah, is often symbolized as the Dark Sea and in the Thoth Deck Ace of Cups, She is both the Sea and the Lotus: the Lotus ( two in one) being the Fertile expression of the Great Mother.
Descending from above,  a ray of light
representing the Holy Ghost and beneath the Grail we have the Moon. The Waves of Life-Fluid, are shown as a web of fluid energy that what the tapestry of Creation is woven from. To many Native Nations, this would symbolize the Work of the Great Spider Woman,
THE PRINCESS OF CUPS, represents the Earthly part of Water (Life-Fluid), in particular, the faculty of  crystallization. The Princess of Cups, represents the Grail's power of manifestation, She is the power of water that gives substance to idea, to support life and to form the basis for  chemical combination, that is often called solution.
The Princess of Cups in the Thoth Deck is represented as a Dancing figure robbed in a flowing , crystal edged garment, all of which indicates her flowing and crystallizing abilities. Thus we can determine that she is an active rather than passive force from the Great Mother.  This determination if continued in the imagery of the Swan taking wing.; The Swan is the symbol of AUM (of oriental philosophy) that is the vibratory harmonic of  Universal Creation.  The Princess of Cups, also bears a covered cup from which s Tortise is issued.  Here, once again, Lady Frieda Harris represents Hindu Philosophy, as the Tortoise is symbolic of a steadily moving platform supporting the Elephant "who holds  the world on its back" . In other words, represents the foundation of Life-Force  for the Earth which may seem slow in evolutionary terms, but is persistent and undaunted.
The Dolphin, that is disporting in a foamy- sea, symbolizes the power of creation know as the Royal Fish, which is also known as the first matter.
The Princess of Wands, Cups, Swords and Disks, all give a Character to the Root Power they are associated to. The Princesses are called the Thrones of The Great Mother, as they represent on Earth, Mother's rule. Root powers are without will and thus not focused. The Princesses are the Intelligently Focused Energy of a Root Power and are thus aware and more personalized  intelligences with conscious characteristics. These Great Daughters of the Great Mother, have their own peccadillos, and it behooves the practitioner of magick to know them. For instance, the Princess of Cups has an infinitely gracious character that is  voluptuous, sweet, gentle, and kind, Romance, and the perpetual  dream  of rapture are her very nature. Unlike the Volcanic nature of the Princess of Wands. To the shallow thinker, the Princess of Cups may seem indolent and selfish, but that fact that she goes about her work silently and effortlessly dispels such interpretations.
When the Princess of Cups is thrown during a reading, the querent is often experiencing emotional detachment that is free of jealousy. Being raptorous and gentle, kind and tender. A personality full of romance, dreams and loving vision but also a dispenser of hidden insight and wisdom (see Elaine the Moon Goddess). Ill defined, the Princess of Cups, suggests flightiness, shallowness, and inability to accept reality.
 
These Princesses are Elemental Intelligence, and can be communicated with, however, their nature is in direct union with a Force beyond the practitioners control.  Tried and true rituals of magick  are recommended so that these forces can be contained before there is too much overwhelming  flow.  In the Case of the Princess of Cups, the practitioners personality could be overwhelmed by the extreme dreamy rapture of  her nature and become unable to operate in the day-to-day world.
Many of us don't realize that the Archetypes of the basic 16 types of personalities, as represented in the Court Cards and seen in our world, are Elemental Forces. Because of the thinking of "Divide and Conquer" we have forgotten that our human bodies, are Elemental Beings! We are a Spiral Entity (Spirit) and not of the Elements...we are not seeking to become more Spiritual, for that would be like a fish in the Ocean, looking for water! Spirit is Spiritual and being infinite and eternal---more or less is a ridiculous concept. We are succeeding in becoming a united Life Force; united with that which it activates, i.e. The Alive Form.  We are attempting the Whole Union of Master (Spirit) and Masterpiece (Form )which is often called "As above, so Below"..  Enlightenment is a misconception, we are I AM (Force of existence)who builds a Me (Manifested Awareness) and the knowledge of the Universe is already achieved----obviously! The Me needs to seek nothing, it must operate only by the Will of the I AM, that seeks awareness through the process of Self-Thought made manifest as this is how thought can be examined sensually! Isn't that what "Sensors" are for... up close examination? The Body is a "Sense of Presence".........as the fish is a Sense of Ocean. As a fellow I AM, I did not come to seek spirituality (I Am That), I have come to seek a sense of presence so that I can examined my creativity (imagination) for errors that may impeded the Great Work-------------As above so Below! I am a Qabalist, because that knowing of myself, aids me in the purpose that I AM.....the purpose of us all------------TO BE! I find knowledge through being! As a Qabalist, I have also Married the Four Daughters.....but of this you must find out the meaning.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!
