This Thoth card represents contentment and satisfaction. Therefore this is a card represents a great blessing, emotional fulfillment and overflowing happiness as the will and imagination fuse into flowing creativity.
The Thoth 9 of Cups card states that happiness is being experienced internally (three vertical cups symbolize body, mind and spirit) and externally (three horizontal cups represent body, mind and spirit externally). Open lotus blossoms are the symbol of open spiritual awareness, internal happiness and the pewter cups represent the body, whose happiness is overflowing.
The astrological symbol of this card is Jupiter in Pisces. Jupiter is the planetary symbol of luck, opportunity, and growth.
Pisces is the astrological sign of fluidity and fullness. Therefore the 9 of cups is representative of a total happiness that flows through body, mind and spirit.
Those who have read my blogs, know by now that Yesod, the ninth Sephiroth, is the Foundation of all manifested forms and forces on Malkuth-the physical plane. The Nines, generally show very great fundamental force because they rest on the Firm Foundational Base of Yesod.
This Happiness is pure emotional power, so that means it can be used negatively or positively, depending on the perspective of the user. Discrimination is the Key here.
THE NINE OF CUPS-Lord of Material Happiness, is Jupiter in Pisces. The Angels of the Decan are Saliah and Asriel.
The Qabalistic Thoth Nine of Cups is Yesod in Briah, influencing the Material World. Here, the benevolence of Jupiter, effects happiness and satisfaction in the Earth plane (Malkuth), by functioning through the Water of Pisces.
This Day-side Thoth Card is a card of sensuality and pleasure; more mystical than convention allows and less stable than the Ten, but is now flowing and reaching towards the mystical states of ecstasy. Here, sensual pleasure, may be felt as a religious experience as the influence of Jupiter is strong in the passive, receptive and somewhat psychic character of Pisces. Jupiter in Pisces also indicates pleasant travel by water and brings good fortune through occupations governed by Neptune.
The personality inclination here is a tendency for kindness, quiet and unassuming, with an unambitious approach to life. If the planet is well dignified, there may be a more ambitious approach to occupation.
The Square arrangement of the Cups, on the Thoth Card, overflowing into one another, suggests Chesed-Jupiter and the perfection of Water force; a dreamy current of Consciousness which is also reinforced by Yesod-9, being the number of the Moon. Pisces brings out the most Placid form of Water ( consciousness), so this card is a Happiness well-spring that floods into our normal state of consciousness. The recipient of this Happiness, really doesn't ponder a reason to be happy, for their own consciousness has not reasoned it out as a logical way to be.....they "just are" and they feel "good all over".
THE SHADOW TAROT, 9 of Quantum Space/Time and the Abyss-Seere, is the comparable Nightside card to the Thoth 9 of Cups-Happiness. The Shadow Tarot card also means, "Happiness. Transcendence. Consummation." Therefore, it is just another way to use a Sigil for invocation of a "state of mind".
FROM WIKIPEDIA, the free encyclopedia.
Seir, also known as Seire, Seere, or 'Sear, is a Prince of Hell with 26 legions of demons under his command. He can go to any place on earth in a matter of seconds to accomplish the will of the conjurer, bring abundance, help in finding hidden treasures or in robbery, and is not a demon of evil but good nature, being mostly indifferent to evilness.
He is depicted as a man riding a winged horse, and is said to be beautiful.
Seere, is said to be the 70th spirit, as Solomon bound him (Solomon means: Sun of ON, and is considered by scholars, to be a Hebrew form of Amman Ra).
This spirit of happiness, is said to do anything asked of him and seems to be a carbon copy of the Angel Saliah who in turn seems to be a bastardization of the Goddess Salacia, the root of the word "Salacious". Salacia was the Sea-Goddess, Venus-Aphrodite that was worshiped in Rome as the feminine Abyss "with fish-teeming womb". [Neumann, A.P.,6.]
The names of demons, has always come from the Christianized revisionism of the "old gods/goddesses" so I wouldn't believe in the " evil-fear factor" that makes demonology so luscious to a few in need of a "twist".
So when the Nine of Cups-Happiness or The Shadow Tarot 9 of Quantum Space/Time and the Abyss, Seere, is thrown during a reading, it implies:
