THE SIX OF CUPS: The Spiral Tarot and the Thoth Tarot Card Comparisons.

 
The Thoth 6-of Cups-Pleasure:
This card is Sun in Scorpio and I along with Crowley, believe this to be one of the, if not the best card in the deck for it implies an ecstasy that becomes a deep personal life changing experience. This is the Ecstasy of the Dancing God and Goddess (Shiva and Shakti in Eastern theology).  I could be called bias here, for my Astrological sign is Scorpio natal, and Scorpio rising with a Cancer moon. According to Astrology, this makes me a very deeply psychic, spiritual and emotional person and yes, I experience daily pleasure in just existing! And Rapturous Ecstasy in the Spiritual, emotion, mental and physical communion of the Sexes.
The  Thoth six of cups is a depiction of  PLEASURE, on a deeply spiritual -emotional way. A pleasure that is healing (copper cups), revitalizing ( orange blossoms) renewing and regenerating ( the coiled serpents in the cups). This is the underlining pleasure that is the foundation of creation itself--an Ecstasy that never stops as it vibrates the waves of pleasure that builds all things out of "The Dark Sea of Binah".

" Where there is Ecstasy, there is Creation. Where there is no Ecstasy, there is no Creation"                                   
                                                                                                                                                                                                                    -Tao.
This is not pleasure from a great glass of wine, or a wonderful meal, this is an overall pleasure that bonds both the Pleasure of the Spirit with the sensual pleasure of the body. Something that successful Tantra practitioners  understand; the pleasure of Spiritual Being created the Sensual Pleasure of the five senses---creating ten senses of magical being. When all 10 flow in balance there is Ecstasy! Why else would a immortal Spirit create a body of time/space that can radiate pleasure---if being physical doesn't please the Divine Creative? The deep understanding of Spirit----Shows us that physical being is not a curse but a magical gift that makes us intimate with creation and the joy of being. Creation Loves "being" into manifestation---this card indicates that such deep pleasurable love is felt by truly being you.
 
The Spiral Tarot shows a very mundane understanding of the 6 of Cups card. There is no implication of the Magic Arcana of Divine Ecstasy. Rather, there is a couple looking off into the distance, seeing the past as a faded picture of past pleasure and not paying attention to the present (overturned cup).  The implication seems to be a kind of pleasure arrived at by viewing past nostalgia. I must say that this card is a disappointment for me. It states to me that the designer of this card did not know the Magick of the Sun in Scorpio or fears the magick of her own body in the communion of the sexes.

From the Sepher Yetzirah and the Thirty Two Paths of Wisdom:
"In Kether is the Radix of a Golden Glory and thence is there a pure, primitive and sparkling, gleaming golden yellow which is reflected into Tiphareth. This is the first reflected Triad complete. And the sphere of its operation is that of Shemesh, the Solar Light, and bestoweth Life, Light and Brilliancy in metallic matter, and it rideth the sphere of action and of the Sun. And YHVH
Eloah va-Daath is a God of Knowledge and Wisdom, ruling over the Light of the Universe; and its Archangel is Raphael, the Prince of Brightness, Beauty and Life. And the Name of the Order of Angels is Melechim, that is Kings or Angelic Kings, who are also called the Order of
Virtues, Angels and Rulers."

SIX OF CUPS-PLEASURE,in Qabalah is also called the
Lord of Pleasure. Here as stated, the Sun is in Scorpio. The Angels of the Decan are Nelokhiel and Yeyayel. The 6 of cups implies
the influence of the Solar Logos-Tiphareth, in the Mental World known to Qabalist as Briah.

Already we know that Tiphareth in Atziluth (Beauty in Pure Spirit) means Victory after effort, shown as the Six of Wands, Now we see the Six of Cups as Tiphareth in the Watery World, (Mental World) as the beginnings of Pleasure.
Noted to be a sign of discrimination, magnetism and hidden qualities, Scorpio, in the Six of Cups, is like activated Water by Solar influx. Here, Scorpio revels in the Sun, and is likened to a Fertile, warm, fruitful Sea--a Spa of Life generating qualities. Being a Sun in Scorpio, and a Scorpio Natal, and a Canerian Moon, my inner self is a bight pleasure to my Watery World. Bacchus revels in my halls of hearth and heart I live this card, in a daily Glow of Bright Pleasure...thus I have no need to seek it-----I am it! And pleasure is a state of daily being and a eternal communication.
 Of course, Scorpio may sting where the Will directs, however, when the Will resides in Beauty-Tiphareth, Love is the Willful view of life and the scorpion's sting is reserved for those who would demean life with vial actions.  So as the Sun activates the Forces of Scorpio, gain or pleasure commences. Implied,without assurance, is that pleasure and gain will build,into ecstasy, as shown by the partially filled cups.
 Pleasure, being the natural title of this card, is not that of the mundane pleasures of the pain fleeing populace, but of the highest sense; implying well-being, harmony of natural forces without effort or strain but with ease and satisfaction. Yet it  also emphatically represents the fulfillment of Sexual Will, as shown by the ruling Sephira, Tiphareth, sign of Scorpio, Planet Sun, and element of Water. A communion of fertile forces, that makes all life possible.

When the Six of Cups-Pleasure is thrown during a reading, the querent;
  • Is experiencing emotional pleasure, in a period of 6 weeks or 6 months of giving to and receiving pleasure form others.
  • Is in a period of innocence and taking great pleasure in one's childlike qualities.
  •  Maybe experiencing an orgasmic rush of feelings, a wave of ecstasy that even sad feelings being actively expressed, feel good in release. 
  •  May also be experiencing sweet memories  of the past, as past efforts bring present rewards.When the Six of Cups card is thrown it implies:
  • That within the next 6 weeks or 6 months,there will be  a determination to bring a deep pleasure into your life that is renewing and regenerating.
  • The pleasure could be experienced with the Scorpio people in your life (October 21 to November 21) or you could be experiencing a  time of deep emotional pleasure that is  spiritually and emotionally powerful and energizing.
