The Shadow Series of Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Queen of Cups & The Shadow Tarot -The Pythoness of Space/Time & The Abyss

The Tarot of Eli In Qabalistic Tarot, Binah is the Third Sephira on the Tree of Life; she is called the Sanctifying Intelligence known as Understanding. The four Queens are another aspect of this Sanctifying Intelligence.
The Thoth tarot Queens are, Seated and enthroned, and represent the forces of Heh (meaning window or sight)  in the Divine Vibration of each suit.  By bringing forth a material Force of each suit, like the window in a home bring in the Sun light and reflecting it, the Queens, develop and realize the Force of the King.  This is a steady, unshaken and enduring force that is not as rapid in motion, as are the Princes.

The Great Mother Intelligence is Binah, the Third Sphere/Sephira on the Tree of Life.  As stated, she is the Sanctifying Intelligence  and in the Thoth Queen of Cups Binah is represented as the Queen of the Thrones of the Waters; Water being the flowing Unconsciousness of the Universe; known as The Divine Collective-Imagination. Thus, if you are into the Elemental Mysteries, The Queen of Cups is the Queen of the Undines and Nymphs.

Astrologically, the Queen of Cups is in the last Decan of Gemini and the First two Decans of Cancer.

The Queen of cups is Specific Water in the Realm of Primal Water (Primal Unconscious). Here the "Will to Form" of Binah is "reflecting on consciousness", i.e. imagination. Crowley's card shows this reflective nature in an abstract way. Here The Queen is enthroned on still Water, her image is of purity and beauty and is robed in veils of pure light. 

The Truth of her is not seen by the observe, who can only see themselves in reflection.
In her hand is a shell like cup with a crayfish climbing out of it, a symbol relating to the Moon and its reflective qualities. Truth being, one of the characteristics of this card is that like water (consciousness), the flow changes according to the influences around it. There is also an Ibis in abstraction shown on this card, Here, we see the influence of  Thoth-Hermes . The Ibis is a traditional Egyptian symbol of this Moon God. Thus again the Male and Female influences are never separate.

Chokmah, is often represented as Python, the First Husband (Lilith's Husband), thus as a snake or Serpent Force (Spiral Life Force).

In Mythology, the Ibis  eats the eggs of the Snake, which relates to her "consuming the seeds of ideas" (This may be why Lilith is said to be explicitly "oral" in her consumption of male "seed") from Chokmah who is represented on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, as Wisdom. However, the Ibis also consumes the corpses of the dead. This may seem contradictory, but the corpses of the dead are "Conscious seeds", personalities recycled so that data is consumed and recycled in the Universal Unconscious. Thus we have reference to the Great Sea of Binah (Universal Unconscious)  from which life flows out, and also  flows back into, Here the Moon and the cycle of  tides add to the image. 

The Lotus is the Eastern Rose, and is the Sacred flower related to Great Mother Isis an Egyptian form of Binah.  Rather than through the touch of her hand, as the Queen of Wands is shown controlling the Leopard, The Queen of Cups uses the intermediary of the Lotus (Womb)  to cause the Ibis to do its work. The Tranquil waters, on which the Lotus float, are the means of force transmission. 

The key characteristics to The Queen of cups, are dreaminess, illusion and tranquility. As is Water the perfect agent and patient solvent, the Queen of Cups, is able to receive and transmit everything with out affecting herself in so doing.

If the Queen of Cups is caused to be ill dignified by the accompanying cards in a reading, then everything is refracted and distorted, as she is directly affected by surrounding influences.
The Shadow Tarot Card, The Pythoness of time/space and the Abyss, is named

Algorab or Corvus, "the wing of the raven" is a star called the Delta Corvi:

Delta Corvi
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Delta Corvi
(δ Crv, δ Corvi) is a
in the southern constellation
of Corvus. It has the traditional name
, meaning "the crow"). This is a third magnitude star at a distance of 86.9
parsecs) from
Earth.  In 1823, it was found to be a wide
double star by British astronomers James South
and John Herschel. Since that time, the position of the two stars with respect to each other has not changed.
This star has more than 2.7 times the mass of the Sun, which is causing it to radiate a much higher energy output—roughly 69 times the Sun's luminosity. The effective temperature of the outer atmosphere is 10,400 K,
giving it the white hue of an A-type star.The spectrum
matches a stellar classification of A0 IV(n) kB9.
Although it is only around 260 million years old,
the luminosity class of 'IV' indicates this is a sub-giant star
that has nearly exhausted the supply of hydrogen at its core and is in the process of evolving away from the main sequence of stars like the Sun.
Algorab displays no excess infrared emission
that would otherwise suggest the presence of circumstellar matter.
It has a magnitude 9.3 companion, HR 4757 B, with a classification of K2Ve at an angular separation of 24.2 
arcseconds along a position angle of 214°.
Although the two stars share a common proper motion,
the significant differences in their estimated ages suggests that they may not be physically connected.
In Chinese, 軫宿 (Zhěn Sù), meaning Chariot (asterism), refers to an asterism consisting of δ Corvi, γ Corvi, ε Corvi andβ Corvi. Consequently, δ Corvi itself is known as
軫宿三(Zhěn Sù sān, English: the Third Star of Chariot.

The Babylonians knew the Double Star, Algorab as the Bird God Zu, who dared to steal the "tablets of destiny". After the Christians, Zu became another "Demonized god" of a conquered peoples religion (The Babylonian gods often came from the Sumerians who called the Annunaki gods, as well as, the stars of these space traveler's star charts;see past blogs). Therefore, a star as a demon, which is common in Christianity, does not really promote great "freaky scarey things" but if Stars are wombs of intelligence, as some so state (Know that you are stars...etc.), then one could call on Algorab as an intelligent "Yang energy" that can aggravate change. This is because, in Alchemy, the Raven is associated with the process of putrefaction, and is called "the raven's head"; a very necessary stage of matter so that it can be deconstructed so that reconstruction can begin. The reasoning for the Yang energy aspect is the Chinese Han Dynastic carvings of a three legged Raven in the center of the Sun, considered Yang energy; the three feet corresponding to the three stations of the day; dawn, noon and dusk. 

 Also, the emotional consciousness associated with the Queen of Cups are "reflective Emotions" and thus very Yang as well, for to reflect on emotions, is to start the process of their deconstruction, so that one may reconstruct their emotional identity.

When the Thoth Queen of Cups or The Shadow Tarot-Pythoness of Space/Time & The Abyss  is thrown during a reading:

  • The querent is showing issues surrounding motherhood
  • Suggesting emotional empowerment, as the querent is able to express feelings honestly, blamelessly and without judgment.
  • Implies too much imagination about issues and not enough action taken to solve them.
  • Emotional and Intuitive capabilities that show  highly evolved interpersonal interactions and psychic abilities.
  • Implies the querent is extremely empathetic and thus must watch out for moodiness and fluctuating feelings.
  • suggests that one inspires from within and could be a time of Deep inner musings, thoughts focused within where the mind is engulfed in Imagination. 
  • That a mature woman of deep sexual and fertility powers, where everything in her life is related to nourishment, sexual exchange, passionate giving and receiving maybe involved in the life of the querent or is the querent.. 
  • Motherhood, or new ideas formulating for a creative line of work.
  • An ethereal person of the highest ideals imagined....sometimes unattainably high in the physical  world of constant change.
  • Wisdom and virtue, Can denote a perfect spouse and a good mother.
  • As a court card the Queen of Cups can mean a mature, motherly woman, with deep sexual powers and fertility that may manifest as actual motherhood  or through a creative line of work.
  • Her ability to give birth to new forms, new talents, new identities and new life is symbolized by the stork.
  • The Queen of Cups represents a "womb-with-a -view", who is the expression of emotional authenticity and congruity about motherhood issues and issues surrounding maternal or female authority figures in one's life.
  • She does not use feelings to attack nor does she feel the need to apologize for those feelings. The crayfish shell in her hand, is a reminder that she chooses integrity over illusion.
  • The double water reflection, symbolizes "as above so below" which is the axiom of western metaphysics and simply points out that she  expresses inner feelings, outside as well. 
  • Her outer self is always the accurate reflection of her inner self.
  • For men, She is the animus figure of his inner Nature and is committed to expressing feelings honestly and responsibly.
  • Often in Cabala, time-space is called the "mirror" and we on this reflected surface of light (time- visible light), are projected by the "other side of the mirror" (space - dark energy). The Queen of cups is the silvery sheen of Spirit that is impossible to see, because She reflects back to you your own self -image.
  •  She is "a womb with a view" and anything that we truly feel internally, She reflects as our form externally, no questions asked, and no judgment given. This reminds us that our inner divinity is best expressed rather than our reaction to the convoluted identities bestowed on us by others.
  • The Axiom of "above all things know thyself" shows particular importance here. When this card is thrown one is either experiencing emotional or intuitive maturity or too much imagination is focused on our life  while no action is being taken by that person to acquire or solve the imagined  errors.
  • The Queen of cups is the emotional reflector.
