Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot card comparisons: The Thoth 7 of Cups & The Babylonian Tarot, 7 of Cups-Seduction.

The Tarot of EliTHE THOTH SEVEN OF CUPS-DEBAUCH:
 Emotional over extension.

Astrologically this card represents Venus in Scorpio. To a Qabalist, this is Netzach (victory) in Briah (the Mental World). Venus in Scorpio is intensely emotional and often involves deceit; a wallowing in emotions or a self-deception. There is a certainty of egocentricity and selfishness and thus the meaning of the card is error, illusion and illusionary  success.

The 7 of Cups represents in a mundane reading, a dreamy state of mind where dreams, watery visions, fantasy or imagination are not connected to anything in real life. Therefore, there is a denial, that is determined to make something from dreams but difficulty in deciding among abundant choices.

The great Pleasure of the 6 of Cups (Sun in Scorpio) is pervert by the inflation of ego.

The Thoth 7 of Cups-Debauch:

To reiterate: NETZACH is the 7th Sephiroth, ruler of the sevens, is where feelings, and instincts begin. Netzach is undifferentiated and the Sephiroth of Group Mind. It is connected to it's opposite, the eighth Sephiroth- HOD-whose attributes are of the intellect, individualization, and beginnings of the individual mind.
When observing this balance we can see that Netzach is the Sephira to which the forces of Nature are attributed.

The Angels of this Sephira are called Elohim, often called the gods, because they are for the personality in incarnation and for the human race. Also, Netzach is the Sphere of Venus-Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Thus Netzach -Victory, implies that the Victory is in Love of Being. Remember, Hu-man means God Mind, which declares us Elohim!

The spark or Soul created personality (fire is Spirit) of the individual mind begins in the Group Soul-Fire that is Netzach, and becomes part of a group of flames that is self-comprehending/or self aware, while also comprehending the Whole. Therefore, it is not all surprising that the arts, music, painting, poetry and all other things of creative imagination, are attributed to the Netzach/Hod union.

The Three key symbols of Netzach, are the Rose, the Girdle and the Lamp.

The Rose is attributed to Venus and often associated with Love, as the most perfect flower.

Traditionally the Girdle is also an attribute of Venus and to learn the secret of the knot in her Girdle means to direct the Venus forces of nature,i.e. tie them up or release them at will.

The Lamp is the bearer of Fire relating Netzach to Geburah and the powerful waring forces of Mars. Is also known on another level, as the ever-burning light of the Temple of Lower Self.

The Seven of Cups-Debauch, also known as the: Lord of Illusory Success,
because here the Moon is in Aquarius as the Seventh Serphiroth Netzach is in Yetzirah, influencing the Astral World.

In the Seven of Cups, is also Venus is in Scorpio, creating a very intense and emotional presence that is often involved in deceit. There is also a tendency to wallow in emotions, and/or self-deception to the point of dissipation. This does make it a card of egocentricity and selfishness.

Thus Crowley implies a great warning in this card, his lotuses are slimy, and ugly, a perversion of the sacrament of the cup in the Six; a perversion usually brought about by over-inflating the ego or staying locked in past emotions. The consciousness is polluted and the card implies, error, illusion and illusionary success, by denying the failure of past emotions to do the job.

Many of us fail to see that our individual body and consciousness, is a holy sacrament, rather we debase ourselves, with thoughts of lack, or superiority (bad and good), when neither exist.

We are One, who is Many. The Many are the Sacred Sacraments of the One. In other words, our incarnate consciousness is a formal sacred act or rite of Spirit and our Soul-Psyche, is made of many personalities, each new personality a composite of the past. It is the rite of Spirit to become Sensually Self Aware through the sacrament of creation! I AM ME! Is a declaration of an Elohim Yod, who is self aware.....and now can discriminate self thoughts from group thoughts.

Thoughts, are the "First Matter", awareness of "First Matter" manipulation, i.e. Emotions, makes us Supreme in our creations! By untying the "not" of thoughts that have been installed by slave producing social pleasure/pain training, we become masters of Existence---the I AM ME, rather than the polluted thoughts of a "I Wanna-Be Me". An enslaved personality  who is all tied up in self absorbed pain-creation therefore flounders in a swamp of past emotion.  To believe "we are not", really just states that we are creating ourselves as a "Lack" or a hole in time, an "I Ain't" rather than an "I AM". For I AM is your real Soul name, what is thought of can not be declared nonexistent.   We are perverted by denying our own immortal sacredness with the 2 dimensional thinking of the good/bad survival mind who fears its mortality. Feat being energy-in-motion, can only stop motion by filling the "I's" with chaos, so no other perspective is seen clearly, making the personality fearing to take a step. 

The Babylonian Tarot, 7 of Cups-Seduction, expounds on the perversion of the sacrament of pleasure.

Here the winged, eagle footed figure often attributed to the dark goddess Lilith is presented as the central figure.

The "dark maid", who with the Anzu bird, took over Inanna's sacred huluppu tree, until forcibly removed by Gilgamesh.

The Hebrew name Lilith, for the first wife of Adam, shows us that the image taken for her is not from another Babylonian/Sumerian cloned goddess. Rather the name Lilith came from the Akkadian words lilitu and ardat lili, the name of a class of storm demons who were deemed dangerous and sexually aggressive towards men. They were not considered deities. Somewhere, in history, the Lilitu became the Hebrew Lilith, the first wife of Adam, who was sexually aggressive, and therefore relegated to the stature of demonic seductress in Hebrew scriptures. (In the Hebrew realm of the Patriarch, woman had no right to own penetration for she was deemed property of men's perversions.)

However, modern scholars think that the seductive goddess, holding the ring and rod, wearing the horned crown of divinity and has the feet of a bird, is the underworld image or sexualized aspect of the Babylonian goddess Inanna-Ishtar. The crown, the rod, the ring symbols of justice, and the lions, that are sacred animals to Ishtar, all point to the fact that she is not demonic and support the goddess description.

Being flanked by owls, represents the ability to see in the dark underworld and/or death, which thus supports this image as that of Ishtar in the underworld.

Seven fluted cups surround the goddess and the cuneiform symbol for the number 7 is above her left hand.

When the Seven of Cups, Debauch is thrown during a reading, it implies:
  • Emotional over extension.
  •  A state of depression where one tries to ease the pain by overindulgence.
  • The imagination running away with itself and the resulting patterns are depleting the persons energy.
  • This is the place of Dreams, so it could be the ability to conjure up visions, fantasies, but the vision is watery, making it difficult to see reality. 
  • There is a implication of true talent and insight, but tending towards fantasy, illusion and unrealistic attitudes. The surrounding cards will support this latter  interpretation.
  • This card is a warning that the sacrament of pleasure is being perverted by the survival mind and has made pleasure a egocentric need/delusion rather than a spiritual awareness.
  • Time to Know Thyself as a Spiritual Entity who owns a physical body and is in command of the senses rather than wallowing in them as a emotionally stagnant identity.
  • This is a warning that must be heard and understood if we are ever to expand and liberate our bodies mental-emotional function from animal emotional reality and to install the Real of Spirit as conscious energy-in-Motion.
  • To believe that," Everybody loves me because I am so great!" is an ego trap of stagnation. Rather," I AM Love and everyone I see is another way to be me." is the Real of Spirit.
  • Remember to seek anything is to deny you have it! I Am Love, states your true-self but ."I am looking for love". States only your lack of Self Awareness----and keeps the Love that you are from yourself!
  • Remember, we are the Will and the Way of our energy-in-motion! That's called freedom of choice, and we are not free to choose when our identity is stagnant in the delusion of our egocentric dreams.
Take this "false success" card to heart---it is a warning that if understood, releases you to move ahead and out of the swamp of "self-absorption".  The Emotional stagnation, which is the 8 of Cups-Indolence, is a bit different in its meaning and isn't about egocentric falsehood but that explanation is for another blog. This card is a warning that the sacrament of pleasure is being perverted by the survival mind and has made pleasure a egocentric need/delusion rather than a spiritual awareness.

I agree completely! In fact I find it to be an outlet for my emotions and I am so grateful that I have the outlet of words and art to release the emotions I have. Maybe we can begin posting some of our poems! that would be fun!
