Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 8 of Cups & The Connolly Tarot-8 of Cups

The Tarot of EliBy viewing the Qabalistic Treeof Life, you may notice that Hod (8th Sephira) is on the same plane as the 7th Sephira, Netzach. Hod is Splendor and Netzach is Victory, both have the same inherent weakness.
They both are reactionary and short lived.
The 8's are reaction to the damage that has been done by the 7's. Therefore, the 8's seem to be a remedy for the 7's mischief, however, they are more of a spontaneous reaction than a perfect correction. This being so,they still are free of the errors of the 7's.



The Eight of Cups- Indolence:
Because of Water (consciousness) having very little strength on its own, and Saturn is the ruling planet here, this is a very unpleasant card. Time and sorrow have descended on pleasure and the inherent weakness of water (stagnation) can't act against Saturn's  obstinacy and  opposition to reform. Weary of life, there is a thought that life holds no joy. The emotions have been stretched beyond the capacity of the querent who has lost heart in emotional issues.
Astrologically, since this card is Saturn in Pisces, Saturn's leaded influence brings about a sense of disinterest with the material condition.

Again, the Hermetic meaning of this card is centered on the Astrological Planet Saturn in the Water sign Pisces, causing a certain introspection of subtle problems, that result in the turning of one's focus away from the material condition; a subtle depression of a sort and a neglect of physical presence, i.e. a discontent.

On The Hermetic Qabalistic Thoth Card, two central golden cups are shown chipped from overuse and flowing emotionally downward into our lower emotional natures. What we once thought of as previously emotionally rewarding (Open lotus flowers)  is  no longer satisfying our higher sense of being; the three top cups represent our higher sense of I AM ME. 

It could be said that the trinity of empty cups represents our lower sense of  "I dislike me".  Therefore, it is time to reevaluate and set different emotional goals. We  all are microwave psychic energy-in-motion, and as Spirit/the-breath-within, we activate the animation of our bodies. Hence this card says that the Spirit is not gleeful in its performance as a body. In fact it is wondering if it is all worth the trouble. This is what many call "self-absorbed" behavior, were we concentrate on a presupposed failure to succeed rather than instigate a new motion in our life. Therefore the illustration of a swamp of emotions, that produce an air (the dark sky) of disaster. When emotions are dwelt on as pain, they are held in static walls of fear. Here the current of consciousness, no longer flows and we can't seem to change the feeling of doom.

This malodorous perspective is easily changed just by taking time to smell the Roses and go about designing a new garden plot. So take heart, for in 8 days, or 8 weeks, you will feel a renewal of cascading energy that launches a new direction in your life!


The Connolly Tarot-8 of Cups, pictorially represents the need to find something more  meaningful in life. Behind the dark clouds of discontent shines the rose color of love. Implying, that often we reach of moment of discontent because our loving soul wishes us to realize we need to set a new motion in life.

The glowing cup, represents the "holy Grail", which means the seeker is looking for their purpose. Stop, and relax, for the Golden Womb of your soul, built you as it's purpose. Therefore, if you stop seeking and just "smell the roses", you will realize the sensual you, is just "another way to be Spirit", and by being intimate with creation, you are your purpose!

The divination meaning of this card
When thrown during a reading, advises the querent that they are:

  • Of the need of structure or discipline to set some limits on over-extension.
  •  Due to the querent's past refusal to leave some situation, even though they know they have taken all they can from it, a certain unconscious emotional change is taking place and giving the seeker no choice but to move on.
  • The sense indolence results in the abandoned success, or decline of interest in anything.
  • Emotional stagnation is a sense of being overly tired, drained, depleted and exhausted.

Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations. May you live long and prosper!

Boy am I glad he can't read...yet! It is apparent he knows he is cute, and his ego is quite substantial. It is also apparent he has me rather than me having him. Thank you for your comments and may you live long and prosper!
