Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 10 of Cups and the Connolly Tarot -10 of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-10 of Cups-Satiety:

This is a far as one can go with the alchemical element of water. The Ten-Sephira image of the Tree of Life is complete here; the as above and so below are connected.
Here water (consciousness) receives the influence of the 10, which is also Malacha ( Anima of Malkuth) the Virgin; However, there is a conflicting element in the Ten of Cups and this is shown by their tilting.  They are unstable as they spill the Water from the Great Lotus into one another. What this tilting and spilling implies is that the work of water is complete and disturbance is due. This disturbance comes from the influence of Mars in Pisces. Mars is the violent and disruptive force which inevitably attacks every supposed perfection. Since Pisces is both peaceful and spiritualistic, mars displays the greatest possible contrast with Pisces.

This is shown on the Card by the paths of the Tree of Life connecting each Sephiroth, the skeleton of it, are in the Red of Mars, and the cups are in the form of a Ram of the sign of Aries which is Ruled by Mars.

Basically, what this card is implying is that in-order to keep water pure and living, once it's work is complete, it must keep moving; lakes, which are a form of satiated water must have a run off river to stay pure. Mars is a noted gross, violent force, depicted in Myth as the God of War who attacks any noted imperfection. Pisces, is notably peaceful, spiritual, sensitive, psychic, and receptive. Mars is brutal, fiery and dominant.This combination means that the proper work of Water is done, and a substantial disturbance is due. In fact, Mars in Pisces, is considered by many astrologers to be the worst position of the 12 signs.

The  Hermetic- Qabalistic- Thoth Tarot-Ten of Cups-Satiety implies saturation is complete and it is soon to flow past the point of saturation. Again if happiness is based on unchanging satiety, you'll not stay happy; However, if you know," surprise to be the greatest gift of all", [ Sufi Master-Jahaladine Rumi] then happiness is not influenced by change and you are happy being you in any moment of time. Repose is over, time to get moving again!

Ten is a number that when added together [1+0 =1), you end up at the beginning which is the 1st Sephira-Kether. It is the "up the down staircase" number that places us on top of one flight of stairs, only to find out that we are at the bottom of another flight. There are some Tarot readers that forgot this part of the Arcana, and call the Ten of Cups, permanent success, but Hermetic Qabalists know that the only permanency in this One Energy Universe, is change/transformation. Yet here dances the "Lord of Material Happiness", the tenth Sephiroth, Malkuth (Anima and Animus of Earth) and all seems well; but then we know how long happiness in material things lasts!

The Connolly Tarot - 10 of Cups, goes beyond it's normal presentation of medieval art. Here theDivine Feminine (The Virgin) has a leg over the rainbow that supports the 10 cups. Rainbows are often used to depict happiness, but also they represent the saturation of water droplets in the air.
A young male and female stare into each others eyes suggesting the fulfillment of hopes and dreams, as well as, the Animus and Anima of Earth consciousness. The Red disk in the back ground suggests Mars, as a red solar influence, along with the blue water colors of the Anima and red colors of the Animus. The fact that the male-Animus is dressed in blues of the Anima, while she is dressed in the Reds of Animus, shows a complete united saturation of One to the Other. She still has blue elements in her dress, as he still has a red pendant, implying their individuality. 

When the Ten of Cups-Satiety is thrown it implies that:
  •  Emotional matters are definitely arranged and settled...for the moment.  
  • Pleasure proceeds, to dissipation and debauchery, as energy-in-motion follows the second law of thermodynamics [..All things proceed from order to disorder]. 
  • The message here is ," enjoy the moment of completion, all is done; sit back, have a "dram", but avoid debauch, as soon you'll be called on to preform at your best."
  • In ten weeks or ten months, matters will be or have been, definitely arranged and settled as wished.
  • There is permanent and lasting success implied here and happiness because of inspiration from "Above".
  • This is a less sensual happiness than the Nine of Cups but some would say a deeper happiness.
  • There is pleasure but dissipation is soon to be.
  • Quietness and peace making are also implied.
  • Kindness and generosity.
If ill dignified by the accompanying cards:
  • Wantonness, waste, and excess are implied.
