represents the fulfillment of The Will of Love in abounding joy.
this card reminds us that the good things in life are not to be
trusted as stationary but temporary items.The Three of Cups card therefore represents
emotional or intuitive clarification; clarity about what your feelings
and intuition are saying.
Astrologically, this card is Mercury in
Mercury, on top of card, is the symbol of communication. Cancer,
is the ability to communicate the emotional feelings one has especially
the nurturing, loving, and light feelings one has as represented by the
golden lotus blossoms spraying the "pollen of golden light" into the
Pomegranate cups, represent the rich emotions one has
received from others. Pomegranates are also sacred to Persephone/ Greek Goddess of Spring.
The golden lotus represents the "solar plexus"
chakra an enlightened being, so this is emotion from deep withing; the
master within each of us.
The 3 of cups
can also represent the deep
emotional, abundant feelings that we have for three important people
in our lives; or it can represent the next 3weeks or 3 months should be a
good time to communicate your deep feelings and utilize you nurturing
communication abilities to motivate, empower, and comfort others.
Remembering the Cancer people in your life (June 21 to July 21) with
loving abundance and/or to communicate your deep feelings. This card is
about love, abundance, healing and the expansion and liberation of self
that those feelings generate. Being ternary, this card states that all
three states of self identity are involved in communicating these

Qabalists and those
who have been following this blog know by now that Binah, The 2nd Sephira/Understanding is
"will to form", and a Dark Energy-underlying force that makes imagination a womb.
is the Will of the Womb of all forms, not the Womb itself for that is
reserved to the Action of Chesed the Sphere of Mercy. So once again the sexing
of this forces is limiting and short on insight. Chesed may be Masculine
in its expression of form, and yet it is feminine as it receives the
Will of Binah.(See past blogs)
may surprise you, is that none of us are the sex of our bodies. We are
Androgynous, in that we are both receptive (female) and expressive
(male); both magnetic (female) and electric (male). Being
Electromagnetic entity, we have great power "to be or not to be". The
body is a tool, powered by the Electromagnetic Entity that you are often called Spirit or Spiral Entity. As
a power tool the human body is excelled, but as it's operator, you
are beyond the reason of bodies and must discriminate emotionally, for your E-Motion (energy in Motion) is the "life journey" of your body. We are obviously a "Will to Be" which
is very much a "Will to Form", so here is a kicker, YOU ARE THE
IMAGINATION viewing itself! Sorry dear ego, but you don't have a imagination, it has you.
In past blogs I stated
that, Hu is Mandarin for God and
Man is from the Hindu word for mind---Mannas, meaning Mind. Thus you are called a God
Mind, which is the Mind of the Image Maker, or Creator, i.e. Imagination! The body is not described in the world human because you as Spirit, define it as you think you to be (Freedom to choose your own definition). So you are a
Hu-Man, who owns a body.
Image-maker, is what the Imagination
means, and that dear soul, is The Divine Creative's Power, So get off of your suffering
butt and stand up and Yell-----I AM Me! And get on with your definition, for
self- impeccability for that is what you came to do! Remember, what we command in
this Universe is our own image and all phenomena is Imagined! Take charge of yourself and stop
blaming environment, or person or thing, sure they may influence, but
they only have the power you give them. What you are as a phenomena is up to your
Passionate use of Imagination!
THE THREE OF CUPS-ABUNDANCE:
is also called the Lord of Abundance. Here Mercury is in Cancer, The Angels of the Decan Rachael and Yehomayah.
The Three of Cups, signifies the influence of Binah in Briah, the mental World.
is a water sign, and is under the command of the Moon. Thus we have
Cardinal Water,i.e. Unconscious. Thus, The Three of Cups is perfect
affinity with Binah, who is "Will to Form".
The rushing water,
swift and extravagant, as it overflows the Pomegranate cups, represents
the gifts of Mercury. The Water arises from a single cup which denotes
the "dark calm Sea of Binah" a characteristic of the Unconscious from
which all consciousness springs. She is also seen as Persephone, to whom
the Pomegranate is sacred and as the "Red Persephone" she is the Lust of Spring. With the Plenty of Persephone, this card
represents plenty, hospitality, and abundance.
The Shadow Tarot-Zepar, the 3 of Quantum Space/Time &The Abyss.
Sports the name and sigil of the 16th Spirit, in the order that Solomon bound them Since the 3 of Cups is a Goddess/feminine card, the Shadow side would be Masculine in nature.
According to Linda Falorio, author of these cards, and Christian demonology, invented by neurotic, paranoid and psychotic medieval superstitious monks, Zepar is a "Great Duke of Perdition" who appears in a red soldier's uniform and armor.
Tradition states, that one calls on Zepar, to bring together in love or cause love to be barren.
Red is the traditional color of Mar's, both Roman god of war and the planet ( and Persephone's pomegranates). Interesting combination for love's messenger. Be that as it may, it is suggested that by skrying the sigil on the Zepar card, one will acquire the knowledge to "bring together in love". I would leave the barren concept alone, as this is a "cause and effect" universe. You won't like the effect.
When the Three of Cups or The Shadow Tarot-Zepar is thrown during a reading:
querent may have an out pouring of love and positive emotion toward
three very significant people in their life An overwhelming desire to
communicate such to them.
- Happiness and a full life.
- May become clearer about what one's feelings and emotion are saying .
- Letting the spirit come through and expressing the joy of being with others.
steady and timeless affection is being felt by the querent that is
unconditional and thus more powerful and more deeply felt than romantic
- Feeling the dance of love, often called the Three Graces. A very exuberant joyful feeling of being.
really isn't a negative to this card, unless blinded by exuberance can
be called a negative. But love doesn't really care if others
appreciative it or not, it just is the foundation of Spiritual
Knowledge. Love is in itself a force, Unconcerned with approval, as that has already be done by
manifestation of its Sensual Being.
