Tarot Card Comparisons: The Hermetic Thoth Tarot-5 of Cups-Disappointment & The Connolly Tarot- 5 of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Hermetic Qabalah-Thoth Tarot- 5 of Cups-Disappointment.

There is a natural antipathy in the Five of cups, as it is ruled by Geburah in the Suit of Water; Geburah is fiery and therefore causes disturbance just when everything seems calm, the emotions begin to boil.
The zodiacal attribution is also Mars in Scorpio, which is in Mar's own house. Mars manifests on the lowest plane of Geburah, and Scorpio is in its worst aspect, which all together suggest the putrefying power of water. Hence, the powerful male influences delay, and decay. Therefore suggest the beginning of destruction and the anticipated pleasure is frustrated.

This scenario of overwhelming Mars/Male Force is illustrated by the fiery winds tearing the blossoms of the lotus plants as they grow out of an arid, dead sea. No water flows into the cups.

The Five cups are shown forming  an inverted pentagram which symbolizes matter's triumph over spirit; crystallization over motion.



Therefore Thoth-FIVE OF CUPS: Disappointment
 card represents, emotional disappointment caused by a loss of that which is loved (symbolized by the once full cups that are now empty).

 As mentioned, astrologically this is Mars in Scorpio which produces an extremely emotional effect, such as "war in Scorpio" would. The Water sign Scorpio is totally disconsolate with the fiery nature of Mars causing a loss of pleasure. In other words, the placid nature of pleasure is disturbed by the super abundant energy of Mars.

To a Qabalalist, the 5 of cups is  the influence of Geburah (Severity) in Briah (Mental world) where sever energy is needed to establish a growth movement that the placid nature of pleasure has interfered with. Life being  about force and form, and the fact that if energy stays in form too long it becomes stagnant (entropy), and severe measures are often needed to get energy moving again.

  1. The 5 of Cups card is about loss of love and like all Tarot cards, is subjective to the intuition of a open reader. There are some cases where this card can even mean the loss of a loved one through the process of death. But this depends on the surrounding cards supporting this observation.
  2. This card may say,"sorrow", but it also shows acceptance which begins the process of recovery (the Growing Leaves of the Lotus above the cups). Hence this may be a card of loss, but it is also about inheritance, patrimony, transmission, but not corresponding to expectations. 

The truth be told, most of our emotional loss is from our assumptions and expectations not being met by others. That is why relationships are best enjoyed on a daily basis rather than founded on a future expectation; after all each of us belong to "ourselves" and love doesn't negate that "freedom of choice".

Being that we are the creators of moments, and call them Life Motions, it only makes good sense to give each moment of a relationship a joyous presence without waiting for a goal to be fulfilled.  We are Life, who "make alive"; alive is but a movement of moments and the future is always trans-formative. Therefore for a full expression of "being alive", Love with all your heart-now, and know that disappointment comes from imagined expectations not being met. Besides, knowing thyself, means " I AM Love", not the seeker of love.

We will often find that loving relationships are also moments of movement and that loss is a constant mechanism of changing moments.  That being said, this card is not as negative as it sounds for it does promise a return to pleasure in a future moment--5weeks or 5 months, where love will be expressed freely again. To love being yourself and enjoying moments as expressions of that love, will greatly reduce the influence of severity in your life!

The Connolly Tarot, 5 of Cups, concentrates on the turmoil of Mars in Scorpio. Here is illustrated a person who is completely unable to explain their inner turmoil, while outside the red of Mars paints the sky. Disappointment, is written on their face as they have turned over their vessels of thoughts (emotions shown as three cups) and found no answer. The two cups on the mantle, show that the answers are not far away, but as yet noticed.



When the Five of Cups is thrown during a reading it usually means;
  • Disappointment in love, a marriage separation or divorce, unkindness from friends (whether deserved or not is shown by the accompanying cards).
  • Death or end of pleasures.
  • Sorrow and loss in those things in which pleasure is expected.
  • Sadness, deceit, treachery, ill-will, charity and kindness ill-requited.
  • In other words, all kinds of troubles from unexpected and unsuspected sources.
Not a happy card---but cheer up!
  • It suggests to you that changes have to be made in choices of  self-precepts or of friends and lovers.
  • So grieve, then get on with new perspectives as emotions are only fresh and clean when moving forward.
  •  Never be afraid to apologize if you are in the wrong will help you move forward as well.
  •  To hold to past expectations, is to putrefy your emotional self, who then is mired in past fantasy which can only be supported by denial.
  • You are worth love and kindness and if your relationships are not supportive, support yourself and move on! 
  • Spirit is action and matter is crystallization, so the idea is to keep expanding your emotional awareness so that you don't solidify into a mire of putrefaction.
Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations. May you live long and prosper.
