Thoth Tarot & comparisons

The Shadow Series, Tarot Card Comparisons; The Thoth Tarot - 4 of Cups & The Shadow Tarot 4 of Quantum Space/Time & The Abyss/Bathin

The Tarot of EliThe Qabalistic Tarot, the Thoth-FOUR OF CUPS: Luxury is assigned the astrological sign of the Moon in Cancer, which is the influence of the Sephirotic Entity Chesed (Mercy) in the unconscious mental realm/Briah the creative world.

There is a certain self-satisfaction with this card as an emotional luxury that is often felt as pleasure flowing from an unconscious source.
The outpouring of emotional luxury from above, is not overflowing in the lower cups, symbolizing that this pleasure will soon end but for now, the feeling of you having everything you need in your life is luxuriant and you are not now open for suggestions. 
There is  also a Promise here; a promise of  mercy, healing, empathy, trans-personal love, forgiveness and taking away of soul burdens.
We feel an easy compassion and are forgiving of those who trespass against us. There is suggested, a luxuriant feeling that we all belong to each other: a larger sense of emotional-family than is normal.
 
From the Golden Dawn Texts:
"In Chokmah is the Radix of blue and thence is there a blue color pure and primitive, and glistening, with a spiritual Light which is reflected into Chesed. And the Sphere of its Operation is called Tzedek or Justice and it fashionith the images of material things, bestowing peace and mercy: and it ruleth the sphere of the action of the planet Jupiter. And Al is the title of a God strong and mighty, ruling in Glory, Magnificence and Grace. And the Archangel of Chesed is Tsadkiel, the Prince of Mercy and Beneficence, and the Name of the order of Angels is Chasmalim, Brilliant Ones, who are also called the Order of Dominions. The Sephira Chesed is also called Gedulah or Magnificent and Glory."
 
With such flowery words of ritual adoration, it is often difficult  to realized that this is Part of your Inner inheritance as a Divine Child. But so it is. Inside of you, is the Divine Collective Unconscious, best seen as the Qabalistic Tree of Life. You are composed of all Ten of these "Entities of Force and Form" that reside in the Universal Divine Collective; Fragments, for sure, but the fragments connect one to the whole. Since this is beyond the culturally impregnated brain's ability to comprehend, it is recommended that one Skries (open eyed meditation) the Tarot Cards, to help them place all the fragments of the Divine Collective Unconscious mind together  by using their own fragment of Unconscious.
 
 
THE FOUR OF CUPS, in the Thoth Deck is called Luxury or Lord of Blended Pleasure. The Planet is Moon and the sign is Cancer.  The Angels of the Decan are: Hayayel and Mevamayah Practice calling these names, you may be surprised at the vibratory change.

The Four of Cups is Chesed in Briah, here Chesed is influencing the unconscious mental realm. The alternate flow of the Moon is mitigated in Cancer, as the Moon naturally rules in this sign. Changing cycles are still there, but passive, and slow. When looking at the Crowley Card, we see the Upper Golden Solar cups overflowing but not the lower, implying that the Pleasure is real but with reservations.  The caveat being; pleasure but not without some anxiety and discomfort.  Here the Luxurious feeling of pleasure is short and indifference soon takes over and as the multiple stems of the one lotus show, the energy of luxury is divided amongst multiple flows, implying too many diverse issues involved to stay stable.  Four is a "dead end" number so ending is the only place to go. and action must be taken soon. 
The Shadow Tarot, 4 of Quantum Space/Time and The Abyss, BATHIN,
implies, luxury, inner aristocracy, and social supremacy.

Bathin is the name supplied to the 18th spirit as Solomon bound them, is a Christianized Duke of Hell and is often seen as a strong man, with a serpents tail, riding a pale horse.




In demonologyBathin is a duke (Great Duke according to Pseudomonarchia Daemonum) of Hell, who has under his command thirty legions of demons.

He knows the virtues of precious stones and herbs, and can bring men suddenly from one country to another. He helps one attain astral projection, and takes one wherever one wants to go.

He is depicted as a strong man with the tail of a serpent, riding a pale horse.
He is mentioned in The Lesser Key of Solomon.
Other spellings: Bathym, Mathim, Marthim.
Sources[edit]

Now, I hate to burst your bubbles of horrific demonic summoning glee, but Marthim (another name for Bathin), is also the Christian saint Martin, which is the Christian version of the March sacrificial god Mars, said to have come riding on a pale horse of death, in the manner of Woden.

Ireland preserved the custom of killing the god incarnate in an ox (rather than hanging him on a cross). In fact, every medieval house hold killed some domestic animal and sprinkled the threshold with the sacrificial animal's blood, all because St. Martin became regarded as "Martyr". The British continued this custom of killing cattle on St. Martin's day (Miles, 204-6.)
St. Martin's day, is a continuation of the Roman festival of Martinalia, when the god Bacchus prefigured Jesus by turning water into wine at his sacred marriage (Christian adaption appears in the Gospel of John). This holy day was also continued by British folk custom down to the 19th century, C.E., as school boys filled vessels with water on St. Martin's Night so that the water could be turned into wine before morning.  Often, parents replaced the water with wine during the night; much like a benevolent tooth fairy. (Hazlitt, 393).
Again, the demonic world is just a Christian Monk creation, just like all the Martyrs, they created, whom never existed as none can be found in true history.
That being said, the summoning of Bathin, skrying the sigil, supposedly should gain one knowledge of herbs, and knowing of the virtue of precious stones. He'll take one wherever they want to go, and teach one the knowledge of Astral Travel. 
Get the book: THE WOMAN'S ENCYCLOPEDIA OF MYTHS AND SECRETS, by Barbara G. Walker for more pertinent information.


When the Thoth or Shadow Tarot card is thrown during a reading;
  • For a time, say 4wks or 4 months the querent shall experience emotional luxury, which is the capacity to make other people feel emotionally satisfied, secure and peaceful. 
  • A period of contentment but this is the edge of completion and a new vision of love is being seen. Thus there is both  the gift and challenge of a fallow period.
  • There maybe boredom, and apathy with a sprinkling of discontent as the querent awaits inspiration.  
  • There is type of balance that is caught between the worlds of thought and action. 
  • A good time for clarity and refining things down to a simple truth.
  • Blended pleasure and success, receiving pleasure but with some slight discomfort and anxieties. This is because this pleasure radiates from our unconscious mental realm and our consciousness is still feeling its normal uncertainty, as it is still bound in survival thinking.
  • A moment of emotional stagnation, discontent with ones environment, and weariness will manifest before the true Pleasure of the Six of Cups, where both the unconscious and conscious flow in pleasurable communion becomes apparent. 
There is a certain inner warmth experienced here, so enjoy the moment and relax in the luxury of the emotional pleasure.
Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations. May you live long and prosper.
