Tarot Card Comparisons: The Hermetic Thoth Tarot- 7 of Cups-Debauch & The Connolly Tarot- 7 of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Qabalistic Thoth Deck Seven of Cups-Debauch is is in reference to the Seventh Sephira-Netzach (victory) in the suit of Water and is governed in the zodiac by Venus in Scorpio. Venus is ill dignified in Scorpio and one is reminded that Venus is the planet of Copper which is noted for its "external splendor and internal corruption" (Alchemy). There is a invariable weakness here, arising from lack of balance.

On the Qabalistic Tree of Life, the Sevens are attributed to Netzach (victory) which is very low down on the Tree of life. This is a doubling of the unbalanced nature of conscious energy as consciousness is now descended deeply into illusion while engaged in a frantic struggle with self-identity. Netzach pertains both to Venus and Earth, and the Heavenly Beauty of Venus is now debauched by emotions generated by fear of material mortality.  The four Sevens bring no comfort as they are the denigration of each element, exposing the utmost weakness in every case.
The Thoth 7 of Cups-Debauch:

To reiterate: NETZACH is the 7th Sephiroth, ruler of the sevens, is where feelings, and instincts begin. Netzach is undifferentiated and the Sephiroth of Group Mind. It is connected to it's opposite, the eighth Sephiroth- HOD-whose attributes are of the intellect, individualization, and beginnings of the individual mind.
When observing this balance we can see that Netzach is the Sephira to which the forces of Nature are attributed.

The Angels of this Sephira are called Elohim, often called the gods (little "g"), because they work for the psyche in incarnation and for the human race. Also, Netzach is the Sphere of Venus-Aphrodite, the Goddess of Love. Thus Netzach -Victory, implies that the Victory is in Love of Being. Remember, Hu-man means God Mind (Hu is Mandarin for "god" and Man comes from the Hindu Manas, meaning "mind") which declares us Elohim Malochem!

The spark(fire is Spirit) of the individual mind begins in the Group Soul-Yod energy that is Netzach, and becomes part of a group of flames/Yods that is self-comprehending/ or self aware, while also comprehending the whole. Therefore, it is not all surprising that the arts, music, painting, poetry and all other things of creative imagination, are attributed to the Netzach/Hod union.

The Three key symbols of Netzach, are the Rose, the Girdle and the Lamp.

The Rose is attributed to Venus and often associated with Love, as the most perfect flower.

Traditionally the Girdle is also an attribute of Venus and to learn the secret of the knot in her Girdle means to direct the Venus forces of nature,i.e. tie them up or release them at will.

The Lamp is the bearer of Fire relating Netzach to Geburah and the powerful warring forces of Mars. Is also known on another level, as the ever-burning light of the Temple of Lower Self.

The Seven of Cups-Debauch, also known as the: Lord of Illusory Success,
because here the Moon, mother of illusions, is in Aquarius. Here also is Netzach in Yetzirah, influencing the often delusional Astral World.

In the Seven of Cups, is also Venus is in Scorpio, creating a very intense and emotional presence that is often involved in deceit. There is also a tendency to wallow in emotions, and/or self-deception to the point of dissipation. This does make it a card of egocentricity and selfishness.

Thus Crowley implies a great warning in this card, his lotuses are slimy, and ugly, a perversion of the sacrament of the cup in the Six; a perversion usually brought about by over-inflating the ego or staying locked in past emotions. The consciousness is polluted and the card implies, error, illusion and illusionary success, by denying the failure of past emotions to do the job.

Many of us fail to see that our individual body and consciousness, is a holy sacrament, rather we debase ourselves, with thoughts of lack, or superiority (bad and good judgment), when neither exist; for the Qabalist knows that if anything exists, it is supposed to as it has been sanctified into existence by the Divine Creative.

We are One, who is Many. The Many are the Sacred Sacraments of the One. In other words, our incarnate consciousness is a formal sacred act or rite of Spirit and our Soul-Psyche, is made of many personalities, each new personality a composite of the past. It is the rite of Spirit to become Sensually Self Aware through the sacrament of self- creation! I AM ME! Is a declaration of an Elohim Yod, who is self aware and now can discriminate self thoughts from indoctrinated group thoughts.

Thoughts, are the "First Material", awareness of "First Matter" manipulation, i.e. Emotions, makes us Supreme in our creations! By untying the "not" of thoughts that have been installed by social pleasure/pain training, we become masters of Existence; the I AM ME, rather than the polluted thoughts of a "I Wanna-Be Me"; a person  who is all tied up in self absorbed pain-creation and denying they created it, is wallowing in a swamp of past reactive emotion.  To believe "we are not", really just states that we are creating ourselves as a "Lack" or a hole in time, an "I Ain't" rather than an "I AM".  We are perverted by denying our own immortal sacredness with the 2 dimensional thinking of the good/bad survival mind who fears its mortality and thinks survival is pleasure and pain is experiencing death. Whereas both are just experiences. Pleasure is a often felt from a balance of multidimensional mind, body and soul and pain is an imbalance of these. Since we are Energy, in constant transformation, (Tree of Life) we will experience both and more, so that we know sensually what we are doing energetically as a psycho- dynamic entity. 

As illustrated in this sickly card, the lotuses are corrupted and look to be dripping an oozing slime (instead of water), which overflows into a malarious morass of a sea. The cups are iridescent and are carrying out the same idea of corruption. To the Alchemist, corruption/putrefaction is an important part of transformation as it must happen before purification!

We know the Six of Cups to Be Pleasure and can say that the 7 of Cups -Debauch is almost the "evil and averse" image of the Six, for here the sensual Pleasure of being has corrupted and become a static state of identity.  As A. Crowley put it," it is a wholesome reminder of the fatal ease with which a Sacrament may be profaned and prostituted." It is suggested by this card, that when one loses touch with Kether (Crown on the Tree of Life), the Highest Serphiroth, even if diverging ever so slightly from the delicate balance of the Middle Pillar, at once the holiest mysteries of Nature become the obscene and shameful secrets of a guilty conscience. Here the physical body, a sacred sacrament to the Divine Creative, is a "sacrament prostituted by the emotions.

Direction in life is all about perspective, perceiving one's self a victim of their own flesh, is to see only the muck and mire of stagnant reactive emotions. Therefore the Seven of Cups is a card of squalid emotions and shown as a putrefying pool of water that has no fresh water input, representing the emotional self that without fresh input of expansive self perspectives, grows putrid and stagnant. To seek only comfort, because we fear pain, emotionally, mentally and physically, makes us a static swamp of negative emotions,i.e. an obscene sacrament of the psyche, who sees only threat and cowers in emotional sophistry.
The lack of courage to act, destroys our motion and life is movement, therefore this 7 implies that our emotions have become a quick sand that slowly suffocates our identity. 

The Tree of Life is Us, the Divine Child, the Adam Khadmon (Ascended Man) in our most dynamic state of Movement, we are a Sacrament unto Goddess/God. This card suggest that we must take steps to free our emotional self from its prison of fear. By taking one step and following that step with another, we shall begin to move into the present and leave behind the past.

The Connolly Tarot, 7 of Cups,

Rather than reach into the mysteries of Venus in Netzach, just displays a mundane meaning of indecision brought about by too many emotional thoughts about one issue.
However, this is illustrated as a minor cross road, and not to be taken too seriously.

Implied here is just pick one and get on with it.

When the 7 of Cups card is thrown during a reading, the Querent:
  • Has or will experience for the next 7 weeks or 7months, lying, deceit, promises unfulfilled, illusion, and deception, either by self denial or by others.
  • There may be slight success but there is not enough energy to maintain it so error develops.
  • Possible victory, but that is neutralized by the  supineness of the person.
  • Drunkenness, wrath, vanity, lust, fornication for the sake of ego; violence against women.
  • Selfish dissipation.
  • Deception in love and friendship.
  •  Some success gained, but not followed up on. 
  • All of which is modified by the dignity of the Card as determined by the accompanying cards.

  • Emotional over extension.
  •  A state of depression where one tries to ease the pain by overindulgence.
  • The imagination running away with itself and the resulting patterns are depleting the persons energy.
  • This is the place of Dreams, so it could be the ability to conjure up visions, fantasies, but the vision is watery, making it difficult to see reality. 
  • There is a implication of true talent and insight, but tending towards fantasy, illusion and unrealistic attitudes.
