Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 6 of Cups-Pleasure & The Connolly Tarot 6 of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Qabalistic Thoth Tarot-SIX OF CUPS-PLEASURE.
Astrologically this card represents the Sun in Scorpio.
To the Qabalist this card is Tiphareth ( Beauty) in Briah (the mental world) Briah is considered a "watery world" which means it's intelligence acts as water with currents, eddies and flow. Therefore, Tiphareth/Beauty in the Watery World of Briah, means the beginning of flowing pleasure

Scorpio is a sign of hidden qualities (occult)
, represented by the ternary images of its Zodiacal sign;
  1. The Scorpion.
  2.  The Serpent.
  3.  The Eagle. Other qualities are it's magnetic (female) and discriminatory occult abilities
(many Scorpio's can become harshly judgmental) and when locked in primal survival thinking, the scorpion may sting where the Will directs.

However, the Sun activates Scorpio as it does the Oceans on earth, eddies, and currents swirl and dance because of the Focused Force of the Sun on Water and the steam of Pleasure  commences; this is where the 2nd symbol of the Serpent comes to play in Scorpio, for it is the Sexual flow of the Sun towards the Water of Womb.

The United Great Mother-Binah-water/consciousness and The Father God-Chokma-Sun, Dance in Pleasurable Union, creating the third sign of Scorpio, the Eagle, which is a symbol for the "Higher Self"; The High Conscious (Daath). At least, that is the Esoteric explanation, as the United flow of the Supernal Triangle is felt in our bodies.

In our daily reality, this card is considered one of the best cards in the pack and it stands for well-being, harmony of natural forces, without effort or strain just ease and satisfaction.  Hence, this is not vulgar pleasure, brought on by artificial stimulants, such as alcohol or drugs, but the deep inner pleasure understood in the highest sense of Being. I have reached this state many times in my Tantra Yoga work, and I call it the inner orgasm that never stops; a state of Samahdi. It is the Joyful Communion of Creation; The Divine Creative which is the Archetype Anima and Archetype Animus in united rhythmic function!

Some people believe that pleasure is a fleeting thing, "It won't last", says the fearful of discomfort. But this is the "Inner Pleasure" that Drives Divine Creation in this Universe and forms the spiral energy-data harmonic forming frequencies that are often called Souls. It is the underlying foundation of ALL! So it can indeed last, but here comes the caveat, it lasts only when ones mental, emotional, spiritual and physical states of conscious energy  are in harmony.

The Six of cups represents  the Rapture of St. Theresa, that is achieved by pure devotional union to the Son/Sun of the Divine Creative (the Qabalistic 6th Sephirothic Intelligence of Beauty-Tiphareth). Since the mundane are devoted mostly to their "slave jobs",  this pleasure can be like the atmosphere of Earth, where the Sun heats the oceans into clouds (when our emotions become overcast by survival thinking) and we feel less joy and more worry and often the only pleasure we feel is in "after work hours" inebriation. We then rain, (cry over our troubles) expressing turbulent emotion, relieving the pressure so that then the Sun, i.e. the pleasure of being, may temporarily come out again.

As breath dealing souls, we all know, the Sun/Son never left us, for our Archetype identity is "Son of God" (the Bright and Warm unisex consciousness) but we left it by forgetting to be the Spirit who owns its own pleasure, i.e. the human body. Many of us became the Prodigal Son of bible fame. 

Often I have heard the ecstatic cry of the devotee who has "touched the Son", speak of "heavenly pleasure" after death. But this is the infatuation brought on by senses; for there is no pleasure without a sensual body in which to sensualize our Psyche!  However, change must happen if Life is to continue, and often we must change perspectives to keep the inner sun on the horizon, if we can't, then death is the only way to gain new perspectives of the Wisdom behind sensuality.

Knowing that inner Sun/Son (not to be confused with sex of a species as it flows directly from the "High Priestess"; the Divine Hermaphrodite) of Pleasure is always with us whether we see it or not, helps us to remember that we are the Joy who came to be human and Human is a Spiritual experiment in intimate creation! For I AM ME, is pleasure, where I AM is merely existence! Therefore
the Hermetic Qabalah-Thoth Tarot- 6 of Cups- Pleasure, is the state of Pure Soul/Psyche being felt emotionally.

From the Sepher Yetzirah and the text of the Thirty Two Paths of Wisdom:

In Kether is the Radix of a Golden Glory and thence is there a pure, primitive and sparkling, gleaming golden yellow which is reflected into Tiphareth. This is the first reflected Triad complete. And the sphere of its operation is that of Shemesh, the Solar Light, and bestoweth Life, Light and Brilliancy in metallic matter, and it rideth the sphere of action and of the Sun. And YHVH .
Eloah va-Daath is a God of Knowledge and Wisdom, ruling over the Light of the Universe; and its Archangel is Raphael, the Prince of Brightness, Beauty and Life. And the Name of the Order of Angels is Melechim, that is Kings or Angelic Kings, who are also called the Order of
Virtues, Angels and Rulers.

Hence, the SIX OF CUPS-PLEASURE is the,
Lord of Pleasure and it is Us! Here the Sun is in Scorpio The Angels of the Decan are Nelokhiel and Yeyayel and each and everyone of You, for it is the Archetype "Guardian Angel" intelligence of each individual Soul.
The influence of the Solar Logos-Tiphareth, in the Mental World known to Qabalist as Briah, is the birthplace of our individual Identity. As consciousness, we are all born of "Beauty".

 As a Qabalist, we understand that Tiphareth in Atziluth (Beauty in Pure Spirit) means Victory after effort (shown as the tarot Six of Wands). Now we see the Six of Cups as Tiphareth in the Watery World, (Mental/Creative World) as the beginnings of Pleasure/Rapture.

 Already noted to be a sign of discrimination, magnetism and hidden qualities, Scorpio, in the Six of Cups, is like activated Water by Solar influx. Here, Scorpio revels in the Sun, and is likened to a fertile, warm, fruitful Sea--a Spa of Life generating qualities. On a personal note; zodiacally being a Sun in Scorpio, and a Scorpio Natal, and with a Cancerian Moon, my inner self is a bight  and warm pleasure to my watery emotional world. Within, Bacchus revels in my halls of hearth and heart I live this card, in a daily Glow of Bright Pleasure , undisturbed by catastrophe. Thus I have no need to seek pleasure, for as a Qabalist, I Am Pleasure; as pleasure is  state of daily being. In other words, Pleasure is the Fulfillment of the Divine Creative's "Will to Be". I find that I rise as the Sun, and warm my consciousness, in the glow of ever-expanding  Self-Knowledge as my soul revels in the pleasure of I AM ME.
Of course, Scorpio may sting where the Will directs, however, when the Will resides in Beauty-Tiphareth, Love is the Willful view of Life. Therefore the realization of my purpose is  I Am Me rather than "I have to seek me" and therefore lack purpose of being and now have the man made purpose of seeking, i.e. consumerism. Hence, the scorpion's sting is reserved for those who would demean life with vial actions of desecration, such as J. Christ overturning the money changers table in the Temple.A powerful metaphor for the Sun of the Divine Creative, overturning the "man made" consciousness based on the enslavement of monetary value, rather than the Solar Logos consciousness based on the value of "I AM ME", where all living being is sacred, and non-living things are creative expressions of pleasure, i.e. a hobby.

So as the Sun/Son activates the Occult Forces of Scorpio, gain or pleasure commences. Implied, without need of assurance, for pleasure and gain will build, as shown by the partially filled cups.

 Again, Pleasure, being the natural title of this card, is not that of the mundane and fleeting pleasures of the pain fleeing populace, but of the highest sense; implying well-being, harmony of natural force and forms without effort or strain but with ease and satisfaction. Yet it does emphatically represent the fulfillment of Sexual Will, as shown by the ruling Sephira, Tiphareth, sign of Scorpio, Planet Sun, and element of Water. A communion of fertile force and form, that makes all life possible, it is the mating of the Sun and the Earth.

The Connolly Tarot-6 of Cups, concentrates its art work on the precept that from the past will come happiness. Such as the meeting of an old friend or acquaintance. There is no greater happiness than meeting the Original Archetype of yourself, but this card glances over that hermetic truth with a picture of a mundane family being reacquainted. Keeping to tradition, many Hermetic Lodges require that their initiates are sworn not to reveal the "Arcane" to the mundane populace. Therefore the Connolly tarot displays a pleasant scene, whose reverse would be  the delaying of rewards, or someone else receiving the recognition you believe that is due you.

When the Six of Cups-Pleasure is thrown during a reading, the querent is experiencing:
  • Emotional pleasure, in a period of 6 weeks or 6 months of giving to and receiving  pleasure form others.
  • A period of innocence and taking great pleasure in one's childlike qualities.
  • They maybe experiencing an orgasmic rush of feelings, a wave of ecstasy that even sad feelings being actively expressed, feel good in release. 
  • The querent may also be experiencing sweet memories  of the past, as past efforts bring present rewards.
  • Joy, deep pleasure of memories, of happiness like that of very young children who are the Happiness that Came to be in communion with all of creation.
  • Inside all of us is the Original Joy of Being and such is this card.
  • It is not about goals, achievements, or getting what one wants, its about the United Orgasmic Flow of Self Awareness that has created the All in multiple forms.
  • Experiencing the Spirit's Joyful Love that drives Force and Form into united expression.
  •  The Inner Son/Child of the Divine Creative united with its Parents. 
  • When one feels the Sun Rise over the Ocean of Self-----one will know such joy!
  • Great Card!
