Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: Thoth 2 of Cups-Love & The Elemental Tarot- 2 of Water-Spring.

THE TAROT OF ELI As before stated in past blogs, the Upper Supernal Triangle can be compared to the Garden of Eden From here, the male and female polarities of energy balance against each other, evolving into increasing density as they develop  towards the lowest Sephira, Malkuth, on the Tree of Life.
In Qaballah, the number Two symbolizes the union and balance of opposites that underlies all material existence. 

Therefore, a brief explanation of the 2's seems necessary to understand the number 2 card of Tarot and the Elements of the suit.

Because this equilibrium of opposites begins in Chokmah, it is called the Sephira of  "Perfect Harmony".  While Kether is that which is the "Root" of impetus: Chokmah is the impetus for all manifestation. The Harmonic Union of opposites supplies that action.
Binah is Saturn, and Chokmah is the sphere of the Zodiac.
Ultimately Kether is Androgynous, Chokmah is the idea of Maleness (Electric- will to force) and Binah is the idea of Femaleness (Magnetic-will to form), and the mating of the Two "wills" bring the Electromagnetic Spectrum into form. 
Once again our sensual ideas of sexuality do not apply on this Higher Scale of Communion.

In Qabalah, Maleness is the vital outpouring of electrical energy that is organized, limited or formalized by the magnetic qualities of Female. Thus Yod is male and Heh is female, and the resulting offspring is Vau of the Divine name, Yod Heh Vau Heh, that is attributed to the six lower Sephiroth in which Tiphareth (Beauty) is central.
As you may note, there are many interchangeable symbols in the Qaballah and tarot, that may make it seem more complicated than it is. The essential key is  that the Vital outpouring Energy (Vital Life Force), which when in intercourse with an organizing force (understanding), produces something else. For example, red combined with blue, creates purple by the rhythmic motion of the mixing of wills (the organizing force here is Kether -the creator of Will /Love), which annihilates the individuality of two, producing the action of One.  Therefore, opposites joined in balanced harmony, produce something different than the parents; in this example-Purple.  This is not possible if exactly the same united with exactly the same, you would only get... exactly the same.

The Tree of Life originated in the opposition of Chokmah and Binah. However this is not static, any more than male female union on earth is static; there is a constant back and forth motion of growth and movement. When a change occurs in one Sephiroth, there is a natural  balancing response in its opposite.  Therefore, there is a continual exchange that could be compared to breathing, as the  inhale exhale action that powers Life.

On the Tree of Life, the Uppermost Sephira is Kether, Eheieh, which sets the pattern for all below it. Like an electrical switch that is off, Kether is all Potential, while Chokmah is the electrical switch in the On position. Thus Chokmah is function while Kether is potential.   Kether is a "non-Being" or No-thing while Chokmah is Being.

Chokmah is the State of Self, where we dream ourselves into being, from a Divine State of Meditation. The dreamed is unaware of the dreamer as we dream ourselves "inside out" (we are infinite inward and limited outward), an ultimate fact of our Earthly existence. Thus you are the Master and the Masterpiece, the Transmitter and the Transmitted. This being so, once again, you can see that your only "savior" is your inner self.  From One "I" (the All seeing Eye) all identity becomes, so in actuality, we do not exist, we declare existence by stating "I AM". Then we set about defining that invisible principle of existence into a visible dream of self and call it "Me". Thus manifestation is a simple three word definition called, "I AM Me" of which you hold total freedom to define.

Since I AM Not, is impossible, as existence as not is impossible, what ever you define as not being you, simply states, that it is you.  For example one plus naught plus l = two, here Naught-zero- has no influence in potential.  So " I am happy" creates happiness, while "I am not Sad" creates only sadness.  Time to rethink your power over the dream of you!

Since dimensions are descriptions of spatial terms, our life dream has specific dimensions as that is our best frame of reference. The Tree of Life is how the Qaballah describes these dimensional frames of reference as being a downward flowing evolution of Chokmah thru various levels of Self Dream called Sephiroth. To make this simple, we are first dreaming our own existence,  and that we are all collectively (Collective Unconscious) connected to the whole of that collective of Self or what is known as God/the Divine Creative. 

This process of evolutionary dreaming towards a more condensed and sensual, thus discriminating dream self, is called the "fall". Rather it really is a "down sizing", that causes us to "lessen" our self concepts to become more sensual and interactive, all of which is necessary for evolutionary thought production and/or discrimination. The problem with downsizing, is that a lot of data is left behind and therefore we lose sight of our own Divinity and must "reclaim" all the data we left behind on our "downward" journey into Sensual Dreaming. You may say that in manifestation, Malkuth, we are a Lucid dream that must re-dream itself as a Spirit.
The goal here is to get the inner dreamer and the dreamed to cooperate with each other and thus the  dreamed than begins to get control over its life happenstances. That is the goal of both the Tarot and the Qabalah. This is a truly extraordinary experience  and is the making of a Magi ; a being who is more magic than tragic!   The Union of Dreamer and Dream has no veils between them, and we can have anything at all, but we no longer experience the "need" of the disconnected. We Love, without need, we created without fear of result. We want nothing at all because we become I AM Me rather than "I Don't Have" or "I don' know who I am". We learn discrimination and what does matter and what does not while we go about the Great Work of "As above, so below".
The Four Twos symbolize the Power created by the union of the King and Queen that initiates force. Those forces are the Prince and Princess, that are not yet brought into action. The Twos thus imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing.

 The Two, of any card suit, represents the Word and the Will. Therefore, the 2 of Cups is the first manifestation in the Suit of Water which is called Love ; because of the mutual annihilation of the individual by the process of Union, in humans or when the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine Unite, there is no male or female present, only the Divine Androgyny exists as the "dancing twins". 

The Two of Cups represents Venus in Cancer. Cancer is known as the most receptive of Signs, as it it the House of the Moon, and in that sign Jupiter is exalted. There is a superficial friendship among these three planets ( in astrology, the Moon is seen as a planet).
In the Thoth Deck Two of Cups, the paired Dolphins (the important symbol of the "Royal Art" of alchemy) are intertwined, with the flowing of Love coming from the Great Lotus of the Goddess, into the twin Lotus below and overflowing into the Cups resting on a calm Venus-Green Sea. This is a purity of Love, that the brain is unable to conceive of or often understand, making such an absolute annihilation of the individual in the Overflowing Power of Unity, a wonder. 

The Will, and the Word, united become Form.  The Word being Logos, the source of all Vibration and The Will being Spirit, the Fertilizer of all idea into Form. This language may sound obtuse, but this is an invisible Force, that words cannot give form to so we must unite words in such away that they allude to the mystery, rather than literate identification.
If you ever have experienced a self-annihilating love where the ego becomes lost in the Overflowing Sensation of Being One from the Union of Two.....you'll understand that you just can't "wrap" your brain around it. The common statement being." I am at a loss for words....." There seems to be some kind of heated fluid that is drowning all reason. Then, my friend, you have experience what the Two of Cups alludes to! However, being a purity, from another dimension of conscious energy, after time, it will pick up detritus from our cultural-garbage software, and slowly progress to a Four of Cups and then the destruction of the five, as the suit develops. The Second Law of  Thermodynamics comes into play, and "...All things proceed from order to disorder." and we slowly degrade the Mystery, with the delusional painted words of reason.

The Two of Cups, is also called the Lord of Love under Will. which is its true meaning where Will is Spirit and not some egoistic possession of the brain. The Thoth 2 of Cups shows the harmony of the Universal Female and the Universal Male, radiating an intensity of joy and  ecstasy that washes away any and all concern. It is The Love, that connects us all together as One, while the massive flow of this connectivity to All, flows through the Union of Two. This makes a powerful transmission of energy  (Vital Life Force-VLF) which may explain why it seems so overpowering to individual reason.
The Elemental Tarot 2- of Water/Spring depicts a white young woman and man, caressing each other. Their whiteness implies a "just met" relationship, uncolored by passion or commitment. Nudity, implies openness and honesty.
The two rose colored flowers imply, receptivity on the earthly plane of form, while also representing fertility. The two yellow birds represent two separate souls on the (according to the authors) "spiritual level"; However, Qabalah knows that all levels are "Spiritual" so I would guess they mean on the Astral plane.
The young trees on the horizon signify, sweet youth and its potential.
 The Two Planets assigned to this card (symbols in the upper left corner) by the authors, are the Sun/Moon seemingly showing the traditional male-Sun and the Female-Moon symbolic union. This combination of Planets is representative of Vitality (Sun) and Feeling (Moon).  In Astrology, the Sun and the Moon are always in separate houses. The house where the Sun stands, is the area of life involved with the central development of the self, therefore, imparting the greatest feelings of happiness and deep fulfillment.
The Moon house is instinctual and covers that are where a person feels instinctual prompting, where his or her deep feelings of security and other deep longings lie. Therefore, the Sun/Moon has relevancy for this card.
The Egyptian glyphs for The Elemental Tarot 2 of Water/Spring are in the lower left hand corner of the Card represent love and young plant; in that order.

The number two and its symbols are in the upper right hand corner and the crescent for Water is on the bottom of the card.
The name, Nanshe, just above the crescent, represents the Assyrian goddess of water and springs.

When the Two of Cups or The 2 of Water-Spring card is thrown for the querent, and depending on its position in the reading, along with the dignity of the accompanying cards, it usually means:

  • Love, marriage, and pleasure.
  •  Some say, warm friendship, but that is a weak statement for such an overwhelming heat, so it's more like an intertwining, of harmony, mirth, subtlety, pleasure,  and a sometime dash of folly that seems to bind us in mystery and sensation of a "deeply Warm" friendship that radiates from the galactic core.
  • This is an ecstasy that only the True Union of the Feminine and the Masculine can produce.
  • Early stages of a love affair.
  • A deep emotional connection with another.
  • A holiday romance with no commitments.
  • A show of affection, flirtation and/or lovemaking.
  • Also an inner love and an outer love for the "Me" of the person. This is where the Soul, the Mind and emotional consciousness, all love the body and reside within the Temple of the flesh, as a house of Love and mutual respect.

If the majority of the Cards accompanying the Two of Cups are all ill defined, than this card represents, dissipation, waste and silly action.

Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations. May you live long and prosper and have a loving and happy Holidays!
