I have seen to lost a blog post somewhere. So I shall back track to the Seven of Cauldrons as it seems to have flown the coup.
The Tarot of the Old Path Seven of Cauldrons shows a young man sitting on the bank of a river, while three maidens offer him a couple of cauldron of water. In the foreground are the hands of a fourth maiden offering her cauldrons. Water is the element of this card and is represent as the color of clothing as well as the river, and filled cauldrons.
The young man seems unable to act and pick a cauldron, as all choices seem equally valuable to him.
The Primary meaning of this card seems to be that of focusing energy on a single goal in order to reach success. Here a number of options are available, but all seem excellent, so decision making is delayed by confusion.
THOTH DECK 7 OF CUPS-DEBAUCH.
To reiterate: NETZACH is the Seventh Sephiroth where feelings, and instincts
begin. Netzach is undifferentiated and the Sephiroth of Group Mind. It
is connected to it's opposite HOD-whose attributes are of the intellect,
individualization, and beginnings of the individual mind. When
observing this balance we can see that
Netzach is the Sephira of
which the forces of Nature are attributed. The Angels of this Sephira
are called Elohim, often called the Gods, because they are for the
personality in incarnation and for the human race.
Also, Netzach is the
Sphere of Venus-Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Thus Netzach -Victory,
implies that the Victory is in Love of Being. Remember, Hu-man means God Mind, which declares us Elohim!
spark (fire is Spirit) of the individual mind begins in the Group Soul
-Fire that is Netzach, and becomes part of a group of flames (yods) that is
self-comprehending/ or self aware, while also comprehending the Whole.
Therefore, it is not all surprising that the arts, music, painting,
poetry and all other things of creative imagination, are attributed to
the Netzach/Hod union.
The Three key symbols of Netzach, are the Rose, the Girdle and the Lamp.
The Rose is attributed to Venus and often associated with Love, as the
most perfect flower. Traditionally the Girdle is also an attribute of
Venus and to learn the secret of the knot in her Girdle means to direct
the Venus forces of nature,i.e. tie them up or release them at will. The
Lamp is the bearer of Fire relating Netzach to Geburah and the powerful
waring forces of Mars. Is also known on another level, as the
ever-burning light of the Temple of Lower Self.
The Seven of Cups-Debauch, also known as the: Lord of Illusory Success,because
here the Moon is in Aquarius. Here Netzach is in Yetzirah, influencing
the Astral World.
In the Seven of Cups, Venus is in Scorpio, creating a
very intense and emotional presence that is often involved in deceit.
There is also a tendency to wallow in emotions, and/or self- deception
to the point of dissipation. This does make it a card of egocentricity
Thus Crowley implies a great warning in this
card, his lotuses are slimy, and ugly, a perversion of the sacrament of
the cup in the Six., usually brought about by over-inflating the ego. The consciousness is polluted and the card implies, error, illusion and illusionary success, by denying
Many of us fail to see that our individual consciousness, is a
holy sacrament, rather we debase ourselves, with thoughts of lack, or
superiority (bad and good), when neither exist. We are One, who is Many.
The Many are the Sacred Sacraments of the One. In other words, our
incarnate consciousness is a formal sacred act or rite of Spirit. It is
the rite of Spirit to become Sensually Self Aware! I AM ME! Is a
declaration of an Elohim, who is self aware.....and now can discriminate
self thoughts from group thoughts.
Thoughts, are the "First Matter",
awareness of "First Matter" manipulation, makes us Supreme in our
creations! By untying the "knot of not thoughts" that tie up our emotional power have been installed by
social pleasure/pain training, we become masters of Existence---the I AM
ME, rather than the polluted thoughts of a "I Wanna-Be Me" who is all
tied up in self absorbed pain-creation of lack thinking ;which really just states that we
are creating ourselves as a "Lack" or a hole in time; an "I Ain't"
rather than an "I AM"....by denying our own sacredness and selling that
sacredness on the slave blocks of "fear of rejection"!
the Seven of Cups, Debauch is thrown during a reading,
- it implies
emotional over extension.
- A state of depression where one tries to ease
the pain by overindulgence.
- The imagination running away with itself and
the resulting patterns are depleting the persons energy.
- This is the
place of Dreams, so it could be the ability to conjure up visions, fantasies,
but the vision is watery, making it difficult to see reality.
- So there
is a implication of true talent and insight, but tending towards
fantasy, illusion and unrealistic attitudes. The surrounding cards will
support this latter interpretation.
