The Thoth Qabalistic Tarot, 2 of Cups-Love,
represents love under will, the harmony of
female and the male interpreted in the largest sense; perfect and
placid harmony, radiating an intensity of joy and ecstasy, as shown by
the Dolphins in total expression with one another.
This love is
communication on all states of conscious energy and as shown by the pink
lotus blossoms, it is "as above so below", stating that this love flows
from the Divine itself. Such love is equal and special, as shown by the
two overflowing cups.
Love like this is without self-banishment or
self-diminishing, rather it expands both parties and they feel equal to
each other while also being special to each other; a state many of us wish
for but we often only experience love of a unequal nature or a equal
love with out feeling special, such as a professional relationship.
green sea represents the image of creative love. The yellow reflection
symbolizes inspirational love while the blue sky states that it is
clear and focused.
The astrological aspect of this card is Venus in
r. The Ancients knew Venus to be the planet of love, beauty and
creative power: Astrologically Cancer represents, nurturing, comforting,
supporting, and healing.
As I have mentioned before, the Two is the Qabalistic number that
represents "the Word and the Will" and is the first manifestation.
the suit of water, the 2 of Cups is Venus in Cancer. Astrologers know Cancer to
be the most receptive of signs and is the House of the Moon. Jupiter is
most exhaled in Cancer. Thus we have arguably the three most friendly
Planets, Moon, Venus and Jupiter, linked together in mutual positives.
those of us who aren't astrologers, In the element of water, Love is
the force that recovers unity from individuality by the process of
mutual annihilation In other words, Love changes both individuals and
combines them in a new form. Such as blue meets red, they love one another, combine individuality into a oneness that is Purple.
The Two of Cups shows two overflowing
cups in the foreground, on a calm sea. The translucent water
(represents energy in motion) flows from a Lotus, filling the cups,
while another Lotus arises from the sea, supporting two Dolphins. The
Dolphins are Alchemical symbols of the Royal Fish and can be studied by looking into
alchemical reference material. The Dolphin Symbol is a little too
complicated to be explained in a short blog.
Since the number two refers
to Will, the Two of Cups is also known as the Lord of Love under
and shows the harmony of Female and Male in the largest sense of
Love is the combination of individual frequencies, that form a harmony. Harmony, forms the Divine Collective Unconscious. Love is then viewed as a
Spiral Harmonic Force of (Spirit), (Spirit and the Word Spiral come from the Same Greek Root word-Spiro which means=breath.) necessary to create living form.
The Shadow Tarot Card, Purson/ 2 of Quantum Space/Time & the Abyss, is comparable to the Thoth 2 of Cups. It represents, "Love, curiosity, eagerness and understanding."
Purson is the 20th Spirit in the order that Solomon (Sun of On) bound them.
He is said to have a lion's head, a comely body of a man, holding a viper and riding a bear with trumpets sounding.
[There seems to be many continents or countries in Christianized Hell, for He to is one of many great and powerful Kings of Hell.]
He is called upon to learn what is hidden, to acquire treasure, and knowledge of past, present and future. Purson answers truthfully, questions both secret and divine. As do many others, (see past blogs) so it seems the Christian monks didn't read each others work.
Any way, have fun, invoking using the shadow sigil.

If ill dignified, it can represent
folly, waste, dissipation and silly action and is far more superficial
than when well dignified. In the Thoth Deck Tarot, ill dignity and well dignity,
are decided by the surrounding cards and there is no significance
supplied to up-side-down cards. This being because this is seen by
many Qaballists as an act of disordered deck handling and not an "act
