Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons; The Thoth Tarot 9 of Cups & The Babylonian Tarot 9 of Cups-Contentment

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Nine of Cups, represents Yesod (Foundation) in the Suit of Water.
This is the Astral Plane Foundation of astral fluids, which when given a thought, form boundaries that are ideas which "crystallize" light into material forms on the Earth plane. This places the suit of Water back onto the Middle Pillar rather than the Left pillar of Hod and the right pillar of Netzach (see past blogs). Balance is now restored to the Emotions. 

Nine is also the number of the Moon who rules Water and thus strengthens the idea of Water/emotion/consciousness. Energy-in-Motion (emotion) flows as water and thus is called the suit of  Water which governs emotions and consciousness.

The astrological ruler of this card is Jupiter in Pisces and is a definite benediction, for Jupiter is the Planet of Chesed (Mercy) which represents the suit of Water in its highest material manifestation. Pisces brings out the placid qualities of water, so happiness is a balanced weaving of Planetary, emotional, and mental forces. A synchronicity of Soul, Mind and Body.
The Thoth Nine of Cups has nine cups arranged in a square, each overflowing with healthy moving water. This is the most complete and beneficent aspect of the Force of Water as True Wisdom self-fulfilled in Perfect Happiness.
 
Those who have been reading my blogs, know by now that Yesod, the ninth Sephiroth, is the Foundation of all manifested forms and forces on Malkuth-the physical plane or Active world of the Qabalistic Tree of Life. 

The Nines, generally show very great fundamental force because they rest on the Firm Foundational Base of Yesod.
 Now this is pure emotive power, which is neutral, so that means it can be used negatively or positively, depending on the perspective of the user. Discrimination and/or discernment 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 is a card of sensuality, as all number cards represent the "objective" and in this case, a  pleasure, more mystical than convention allows and less stable than the Ten; However, Happiness is now flowing and reaching towards the mystical states of physical 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 Babylonian Tarot, 9 of Cups-Contentment,  depicts a "fish garbed" figure that was called a apkallu ("wise men" or "sage"), by the Babylonians. Apkallu, when shown standing over the bed of a sick person, are thought to be a Priest who is casting out demons of disease. Thus, being magically protective, clay figures of apkallu were placed in doorways, and foundations of homes (often in groups of 7) to protect the inhabitants from disease.
The number seven, was because of the Seven Sages, of ancient texts, who were antediluvian beings who lived before the Great Flood. These seven sages, were sent by the god Ea, during the great flood, in fish form, to teach mankind the arts and sciences of civilization (to the Dogon, a living peoples in Mali, these fish-formed beings came from the area of the sky called Sirius and GMO'd the human race).

Adapa, was the name of one of the well known sages, who was also called Onnaes, an entity that was half man and half fish (amphibian). Onnaes was purported  by Berossos, a Chaldean Priest of Bel, to have swum up to the shore of the Persian Gulf and began to teach the Babylonians all manner of knowledge.
[Berossos, was a Chaldean Priest of Bel in Babylon (c.290 B.C.E.) who wrote books in Greek that passed on the knowledge of the Babylonians to the Greek speaking world.]
I would recommend that the interested, read the Story of Adapa, who is the most wise priest of Ea in the ancient city of Eridu as it is most entertaining.

The priest Adapa, is most content with his purpose of teaching mankind as a priest-sage, and temple fisherman and therefore refuses immortality that was offered by Anu (The Supreme God).

The Babylonian Tarot Card, depicts the sage Adapa, in his priestly fish garb, carrying a vessel called a banduddu (bucket) in one hand and a fir-tree cone known as a mullilu (purifier) in the other. The other eight cups are to the figures right and the cuneiform symbol of the number 9 is at the top of the card.
So when the Nine of Cups-Happiness, is thrown during a reading, it implies:
  • Contentment and Satisfaction.
  • Everything looks and feels "rosy".
  • The querent, is enjoying self-esteem and inner joy; Flowing feelings of inspiration and joy.
  • The dull thunk in this chiming joy, is that this is temporary, as Change is the stability of the Universe; "the cat's away, so the mice can play", kind of moment.
  • Before reason takes over, and finds the logical points of survival thinking that messes up or mitigates "unmitigated joy".
  • In the periods of 9 weeks or 9 Months, complete success.
  • Pleasure and happiness where wishes are fulfilled.
  • This is unabashed happiness, where complete and perfect realization of pleasure and happiness is being experienced. 
  • The nine of cups also suggests high-mindedness, not easily satisfied with small and limited ideas.
  • A good, generous, but maybe foolish nature.
If ill defined by the accompanying cards:
  • Self- praise, vanity, conceit, much self promotion, yet still kind and lovable.
  • This card is so balanced that it is hard to find any ill definition for it. A person of this generous nature is apt to be maligned through too much self -assumption; However this is not unusual in our over critical society where those of a genuine happy nature are often accused of being naive.
Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations that keep me blogging. May you live long and prosper!
