Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: THE SEVEN OF CUPS

The Thoth Deck Seven of Cups is is in reference to number 7-Netzach (victory) in the suit of Water and is governed in the zodiac by Venus in Scorpio. Venus is ill dignified in Scorpio and one is reminded that Venus is the planet of Copper which is noted for its "external splendor and internal corruption". There is a invariable weakness here, arising from lack of balance.

As illustrated in the Thoth card, the lotuses are corrupted and look to be dripping a oozing slime (instead of water), which overflows into a malarious morass of a  sea. The cups are iridescent and are carrying out the same idea of corruption.

We know the Six of Cups to Be Pleasure and can say that the 7 of Cups -Debauch is almost the "evil and averse" image of the Six. As A. Crowley put it," it is a wholesome reminder of the fatal ease with which a Sacrament may be profaned and prostituted."

It is suggested by this card, that when one loses touch with Kether (Crown on the Tree of Life) The Highest Serphiroth, diverging ever so slightly from the delicate balance of the Middle Pillar (see past blogs); at once the holiest mysteries of Nature become the obscene and shameful secrets of a guilty conscience.

Direction in life is all about perspective, perceiving ones self a victim is to see only the muck and mire of stagnant emotions.
The Rider-Waite 7 of Cups, shows a dark cloud scene as the base for the Seven Cups, hinting at corruption of the sacred objects in each of the Cups; the corruption of thought (head), the veiling of consciousness (veiled goddess figure), the corruption of the serpent force (The Spirit), corruption of the solid physical manifestation (mountain), corruption of wealth (jewels), the corruption of victory (wreath) and the corruption of the Dragon within (sex energy/kundalini). This symbolism of floating on a dark cloud suggests the corruption of the Sacrament in each cup.

When the Seven of Cups is thrown during a divination, the Querent has or will experience:
  • for the next 7 weeks or 7monts;Lying, deceit, promises unfulfilled. illusion, and deception. Either by self denial or by others.
  •  Slight success but there is not enough energy to maintain it so error develops.
  • Possible victory, but that is neutralized by the  supineness of  the person.
  • Drunkenness, wrath, vanity, lust, fornication for the sake of ego, violence against women.
  • Selfish dissipation.
  • Deception in love and friendship.
  • Some success gained, but not followed up on. 
  • All of which is modified by the dignity of the Card as determined by the accompanying cards.

The Seven of Cups is a card of squalid emotions and as a putrefying pool of water that has no fresh water input, the emotional self without fresh input of  expansive self perspectives grows putrid and stagnant. To seek only comfort, because we fear pain, emotionally, mentally and physically, makes us a unmoving swamp of negative emotions,i.e. an obscene sacrament. The lack of courage to act, destroys our motion... and life is movement.  The Tree of Life is Us--the Divine Child, in our most dynamic state of Movement and we are a Sacrament unto Goddess/God. This card suggest that we must take steps to free our emotional self from its prison of fear. By taking one step and following that step with another, we shall begin to move into the present and leave behind the past.
