Ten of Cups-Satiety:
This Thoth card represents deep emotional
contentment that radiates outwardly from the inner self. The back
ground pattern that the radiant cups rest on is the Qabalistic Tree of
Life which is the symbol of the "Supreme Being" showing that this card
symbolizes complete emotional, mental, and physical contentment.
However, since the Astrological aspect of this card is Mars in Pisces,
it also states that due to the dynamic vitality and sometimes violent
motion of Mars, the peaceful waters (emotions) of Pisces are soon to be
disturbed. This should not surprise any of us since change is the only
constant in life. So for now, enjoy the deep satisfaction of a job well
done that comes from an alignment of all the states of energy
consciousness that we are composed of.
The Spiral Tarot is depicting some kind of fey being of spiral energy, orchestrating the gathering of ten cups that are filling with the " Spiritual conscious flow", that is the element water. Therefore this card symbolizes fulfillment on every level; from spiritual to physical.
This is an experience of a deep
spiritual nature. A satisfaction that knows soon it will be time to move
To reiterate , MALKUTH- Earth, is the 10th Serphiroth on the Tree of Life, and is the placement of the 4 Tens.
TEN OF CUPS is known as SATIETY, and is attributed to Mars in Pisces.
Crowley calls this card, The Lord of Perfected Success,
as this is the
influence of MALKUTH in the unconscious Mental World known as Briah.
Satiety, is word meaning, filled to the point of excess, though it is hard to argue that excessive happiness is a negative thing; However , it could be distracting.
is exceptional about this card, is that the general astrological
meaning of Mars in Pisces doesn't apply. Pisces is a watery sign, and
Mars would signify a dispersal of energy to a point of frustration.
However, the meaning here is that fiery Mars causes
the Waters of Pisces to rush furiously into Briah, bringing great
success on the Material plane of Malkuth. The imagery of the Thoth and Spiral tarot cards
expresses the opinion that all happiness is inspired from above, i.e.
comes from the Divine. One could say that Happiness, is a higher-inner
state of energy consciousness.
To be sure, when Tarot is used for
Divination, it is best applied to Mundane matters, where as the meaning
may be different if applied to a more spiritual plane. The Placement of
the cards, in the reading will clarify this statement.
In ordinary matters, the divined meaning is , matters definitely arranged as wished, permanent and lasting success.
This meaning of material success is reinforced if the 10 of Cup's lands
on the position of "Beneath you" or "of House and Home", on a Celtic
Cross layout. In fact, that would be paramount for this card, as it is a
10 of Malkuth (Kingdom) in a Earthly existence position. Then again, the duration of happiness is often coming to and end in this card, as it is a 10 that becomes 1 and 0. From beginning to end. Cycling back to the 0- card of The Fool. So what is done, is done, and now one begins again.
When the 10 of cups card is thrown it indicates that:
- In the next 10 weeks or
10 months you will experience a sense of deep vitality and energy
radiating outward accompanied by feelings of contentment and satiety
flowing through all aspects of your life.
- A heart felt contentment.
could also represent a deeply satisfying relationship with the Pisces
people in your life; those born during the time of February 21 to March
- Matters definitely arranged as wished, permanent and lasting success in these matters.
- Emotional level dreams coming true.
