Tarot Card Comparisons:The Thoth 10 of Cups & The Babylonian Tarot, 10 of Cups-Success

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-TEN OF CUPS-SATIETY

Astrologically this card is Mars in Pisces; here we have an oddity.
Normally you would think that Mars combined with a water sign would signify a dispersal of energy and some frustration. But in this case, the fire of Mars causes a kind of steamy evaporation of the Watery sign of Pisces to expand into the world of Briah, (the unconscious Mental World) bringing great success in the Material World where dreams have enough "Steam" to materialize.

The 10 of Cups, illustrates that happiness is "inspired from above" and in ordinary divination means that matters definitely arranged and settled as wished, permanent and lasting success of one issue.

Knowing that Tarot is best applied to mundane matters, any explanation of this card should stop here; However, to a Qabalist, the work proper to water (unconscious) is complete, and disturbance is due.  This Satiety, will last about 8 weeks or  at the most 8 months, and then it will be time to move on before the watery realm of emotion becomes stagnant forming into a static kind of sophistry.

The Thoth Ten of Cups, Satiety, although in the seemingly stable form of the Tree of Life, has a conflicting element that causes a tilting of the Cups, spilling water from the Great Lotus that overhangs the whole system.
This conflict is from Mars in Pisces. Mars (or Aries as shown by the Ram cups) is a noted gross, violent force, depicted in Myth as the God of War who attacks any noted imperfection. Pisces, is notably peaceful, spiritual, sensitive, psychic, and receptive. Mars is brutal, fiery and dominant.This combination means that the proper work of Water is done, and a substantial disturbance is due. In fact, Mars in Pisces, is considered by many astrologers to be the worst position of the 12 signs.

Yet, through all this supposed doom and Martian  gloom, when this card is thrown during a reading, it means that the most important emotional matter is definitely arranged and settled...for the moment.   Pleasure proceeds, to dissipation and debauchery, as energy-in-motion follows the second law of thermodynamics [...All things proceed from order to disorder].  The message here is ," Enjoy the moment of completion, all is done; sit back, have a "dram", but avoid debauch, as soon you'll be called on to preform at your best."

Ten is a number that when added together [1+0 =1), you end up at the beginning. It is the "up the down staircase" number that places us on top of one flight of stairs, only to find out that we are at the bottom of another flight. There are some Tarot readers that forgot this part of the Arcana, and call the Ten of Cups, permanent success, but Qabalists know that the only permanency in this One Energy Universe, is change/transformation so what is successful, is already past. Yet here dances the "Lord of Material Happiness", the tenth Sephiroth, Malkuth  and all seems well...but then we know how long happiness in material things lasts!
The Babylonian Tarot, 10 of Cups-Success, focuses on the successful manifestation and completion of an issue.

According to Babylonian legend, there was a great flood that destroyed mankind, except for a man named Utnapishtum and his family. The Story of this Sumero-Babylonian Noah goes like this:

The gods  got tired of all the manual labor need to live, so they built mankind as a laborer who served the gods. However, the gods hadn't created a predetermined life span for mankind, who lived for centuries and produce offspring at a prodigious rate.  Soon the earth was overpopulated. Unable to sleep because of the din of overcrowding, the gods sent a great flood in order to reduce the population.
On the advice of Ea, Utnapishtum (meaning "he founded life") built an Ark for himself and his family and all the animals.
After 7 days, with much of mankind destroyed and  when the flood receded the ark was grounded, whereby wise Utnapishtum made an offering to the gods. This pleased the gods, who saved the rest of humanity and also put in place a predetermined time for death, so that mankind would not overpopulate the earth. Utnapishtum and his wife, achieved the ultimate success in the quest for immortal life.

Depicted on the card, is Utnapishtum's ark, afloat on a vast sea, that is broken into crystalline patterns of blue and green. In a balanced arrangement, are shown 10 fluted cups.   At the bottom of the card is a "lion-fish" or merman, a creature named a kulullu, meaning "fish-man". These Kulullu,  who were Ea's  (Son of God Anu) creatures and were considered to be magically protective, just as like the fish garbed figure.

Therefore the 10 of Cups, when thrown, suggests the querent:
  • Satisfaction in one's achievements.
  • True friendship.
  • Enjoy the moment of success, and celebrate it with others and fear not moving on into other new areas of creation when done.
  • Remember, that Permanent and lasting success is a warning that here your life experience can be held as a comfortable end, a kind of death, or you can enjoy the moment of success and then try something new, transforming the energy into another momentary motion.
  •  A even deeper esoteric meaning is that, It's okay to party, but let not the party be your goal.
  • Rather, use the expressive power of your celebration to laughingly move on into other unexplored areas of energy transformation.
  •  A way to remind yourself of this is just remove the  zero from the end of the number 10 which will give you 1. That would be the Ace of Cups,  which represents the dawning of new ideas and enters the realm of reasoning consciousness where choices are made. 
  • In this realm of creation, strength comes from adversity and necessitates purposeful  "new ideas" to continue a happy and successful life..
If ill defined by accompanying cards:
  • A good life that is unappreciated.
  • Loss of friendship.
  • Disruption.
  • Anger, deceit, sorrow and strife.
