Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Princess of Cups and the Babylonian Tarot, Princess of Cups-Ishara

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-Princess of Cups: Represents mastery of emotional objectivity achieved by working through manipulation, jealousy, possessiveness and seduction.
  1. The turtle in the sea shell symbolizes  the capacity to offer emotional loyalty and longevity to others by being objective and non-possessive. 
  2. The Swan coming out of her head, represents emotional security and the ability to communicate her feelings, desires and concerns in realistic and meaningful ways ( the dolphin emphasizes this ability).
  3. The crystals on her gown, show a crystal clear ability to look at things as they are instead of what see wants to see.
  4. The free floating lotus blossom shows her trusting heart. She is devoid of a possessive and controlling heart. Of course, the lotus which is sacred to Isis and the Veil which represents the Veiled Aphrodite. It should be understood, that the physical world is a reflected world (less than .4% of the Electromagnetic Spectrum) . Therefore  the Moon symbolizes reflected light and your soul is veiled by reflection from the your own sight.
  5.  The human body is seen as a spiritual glamor, since it is less than 1% of your Spiritual Presence in this Universe. It is for the sole purpose of Splendor which is another way of saying sighted intimate sensuality. Now ideas get the tapestry of emotions, that make them  sensually enjoyable...or not.

This is Elaine the Virgin Moon-goddess of Arthurian legend, who was the keeper pf the Graäl in the Graäl temple, where she wove the tapestries of life, death, and fate. Elaine was reported to be  the "Dispenser of Joy" but also a source of hidden knowledge, bestower of mystical insight and the gift of wisdom.

The Princess of Cups represents the earthly part of Water; especially the faculty of Water that promotes crystallization. She represents the power of water to give substance to idea, to support life, to form the basis for chemical combinations. This is also the power of Woman and is part of the Magick-Womb-rite that she preforms.

In the Thoth Deck, She is represented as a dancing figure, robed in a flowing garment at whose end crystals are forming. She is crested with a Swan with open wings.  In oriental philosophy the Swan represents
AUM---which is the symbol of the entire process of creation which in western philosophy is best describe by the word Magick . If you can think inwardly you will then understand that the Magus doesn't use magick----it uses Him!

The Cup she bears has a tortoise climbing out of it; this is the Hindu Tortoise, that in that culture, has elephants that support the earth, standing on its back.

The Princess of Cups is standing on a foaming sea in which a dolphin disports; the dolphin represents the Power of Creation ( the first matter) of which she weaves the earth.

The Babylonian Princess of Cups-Ishara, is an illustration of the Babylonian goddess of marriage and child birth.
She was like Ishtar, in that she was a goddess of war and love.

Yet in another tradition, she was identified as the wife of Dagan, the god of grain.

Ishara, was also identified as the "merciful goddess who heareth supplications ". Ishara  has a long history in Mesopotamia, for she was also the mother of the Sebittu, who were the seven beneficent gods associated with the  Pleiades star cluster in the constellation of Taurus.

Ishara was a very busy goddess as Oaths and divination were also enforced by her.

Early on in her career, she was symbolized by a snake but in later times she was associated with the scorpion. In astrology she was identified with the Scorpion constellation, that was known to the Babylonians. Both the symbol of snake and scorpion, along with the eagle, are associated with the zodiacal water sign of Scorpio.
On the card, Ishara is shown holding a hegallu vase, ready to pour the water of life. The large face around her, implies that she is the goddess of water.
The Babylonians may have used the  Greek omega symbol to represent the womb, therefore, that symbol is surrounding the goddess. There is a symbol of a scorpion at her feet.

The archetypal personality that the Princess of Cups represents:
  • Is personally, infinitely gracious, voluptuous, gentle, kind, and tender.  
  • Creative, fertile energy that can take form.
  • Unceasing power to generate new ideas.
  • Her life is Romance, a perpetual dream of Rapture.
  • Superficially, she seems selfish, and indolent, but this is not so. She just goes about her work silently and effortlessly with no need to consult others but always willing to assist.
  • As a helpmate, she is unsurpassed for she is very dependent on others but at the same time very helpful to them.
  • This concept of dependency may seem counter-intuitive to Powerful expression; However, it is in Union that Her power flows and in this sense, the art of dependency becomes crystal clear.
  • When this card is thrown for a woman: it states that she is objective,and realistic of heart.
  •  Emotionally loving and realistic rather than attached and clinging.
  • When thrown for a man, the Princess of Cups represents:
  •  Their inner feminine nature (anima) that is committed to offering emotional longevity while being loyal in realistic non-possessive ways.  Therefore this personality card may represent both genders.
  • The princess maybe a person in one's life who is one's own age or younger and who may be teaching one lessons about emotionally letting go.
  • This is a water sign card that is associated with Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and/or the people born within these time frames who is known to the Querent.

To find an ill definition of this card is rather difficult
, because her strong points can be considered weak points in the perspective of divisionism, but strong points in the perspective of Union. To some being a Romantic can seem a negative character trait....to others, empowered artistic expression. All in all She is enjoyable, as a beautiful blue-green-yellow butter fly, flitting from flower to flower.  One, who is being smart, would never try to contain her nor pin her down for display but rather be Pan to Her Romance and play the flute music supporting Her dance.
  • However, if surrounded by negative cards:
  • She could be extravagant to a fault.
  • Lazy, and selfish.
  • Overly dramatic and totally self absorbed in her fantasy.
