Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- Queen of Cups & The Jungian Tarot- Queen of Cups: The Emotional Mother.

The Tarot of El;iThe Thoth Deck Queen of Cups, represents the Watery aspect of Water, it's the power of reflection and reception. That is why their seems to be no Queenly Human form in the card, yet subtlety it is there. The Queen of Cups is a "mirror" which reflects the nature of the one "looking" at Her. She rules in the zodiac from the 21st degree of Gemini to the 20th degree of Cancer. To see the Truth of the Queen of Cups is hardly possible, as she not only reflects the nature of the observer but that she is also associated with dreaminess, tranquility, and illusion.

In the Thoth deck tarot of the Hermetic Qabalah, the Queen is enthroned on still water, and bears the Lotus cup of Isis, and the Crayfish of a shell cup---crayfish represent the regenerative state of water as they shed their shell to become anew.

The endless curves of light robe and veil her and the sea upon which she is sitting, reflects her almost unbroken images of the image she represents. Being the perfect agent of reflection and reception, she is unaffected by  what she is transmitting. This is the perfect state of the Unconscious, which reflects imaginings.

The Great Mother Intelligence, which is objectified in the Queen's, is Binah, the third Sphere/Sephira on the Tree of Life. She is the Sanctifying Intelligence and/or Imagination. As the Queen of Cups, Binah is represented as the Queen of the Thrones of the Waters; Water being the flowing Unconsciousness of the Universe and/or the Universal Divine Collective Unconscious.  And if you are into the Elemental Mysteries, The Queen of Cups is the Queen of the Undines and Nymphs.

Astrologically, the Queen of Cups is in the last Decan of Gemini and the First two Decans of Cancer.

The Queen of cups is Specific Water (Imagination) in the Realm of Primal Water (Unconscious). Here the "Will to Form" of Binah is "reflecting on consciousness".

Crowley's card shows this reflective nature in an abstract way. Here The Queen is enthroned on still Water, her image is of purity and beauty and is robed in veils of pure light.  The Truth of her is not seen by the observer, who can only see themselves in reflection.

In her ethereal  hand is a shell like cup with a crayfish climbing out of it, a symbol relating to the Moon and its reflective qualities. Truth being, one of the characteristics of this card is that like water (consciousness), the flow changes according to the influences around it.

There is also an Ibis in abstraction shown on this card, Here, we see the influence of  Thoth-Hermes . The Ibis is a traditional Egyptian symbol of this Moon God. Thus again the Male and Female influences are never separate.

Chokmah, is often represented as Python, the First Husband, thus as a snake or Serpent Force, i.e. a Spiraling Force. In Mythology, the Ibis  eats the eggs of the Snake, which relates to her "consuming the seeds of ideas"  from Chokmah who is represented as Wisdom.
However, in Egyptian theology, the Ibis also consumes the corpses of the dead. This may seem contradictory, but the corpses of the dead are "Conscious seeds", personalities recycled so that data is consumed and recycled in the Universal Unconscious. Thus we have reference to the Great Sea of Binah (Universal Unconscious)  from which life flows out, and also  flows back into. Here the understanding of the Moon and the cycle of tides add to the knowledge the image conveys. 

The Lotus is the Eastern Rose, and is the Sacred flower related to Great Mother Isis an Egyptian form of Binah.  Rather than through the touch of her hand, as the Queen of Wands is shown controlling the Leopard, the Queen of Cups uses the intermediary of the Lotus (Womb)  to cause the Ibis to do its work. The Tranquil waters, on which the Lotus float, are the means of force transmission. 

The key characteristics associated with The Queen of cups, are dreaminess, illusion and tranquility. As is Water the perfect agent and patient solvent, the Queen of Cups, is able to receive and transmit everything without affecting herself in so doing.

If the Queen of Cups is caused to be ill dignified by the accompanying cards in a reading, then everything is refracted and distorted, as she is directly affected by surrounding influences.

The Jungian Queen of Cups: The Emotional Mother,
is a highly sensitive, affectionate  and emotional woman, but with self protective qualities that may make her seem unapproachable.
The chief pleasure of this type of Archetypal personality:
  • Is to lead and attract  others.
  • Such a person seems not to have a great character of their own as they are reflecting those around them. Of course, to do so requires a skill in receptivity and/or intuition.
If ill dignified, all these bright reflective and receptive properties are distorted by her own inner turbulence and everything that passes through her is refracted and distorted.
Being that she is most "dreamy", she does not easily let other people into her world; although she is very loyal to friends. Sporting a highly developed sense of "right and wrong", and of order, all of which tends to keep her emotions under control while also compensating for a certain lack of self confidence.
Generally speaking, as an archetype her characteristics depend on the influences which affect her.
  • Such a woman, if not ill dignified, would easily be receptive to a mans wants and reflect his passions, seemingly the perfect reflection of her husband.
  • Her inner fantasies and dreams totally unaffected by him.
  • She is the "Moon Pool" of the Oracle or Seer as she is receptive to their seeking and reflective of forms past, present and future.
  • Since She is extreme in "surface reflective", most of us fail to see the depth of Her but there is more than one side of a Mirror and Her dark, depths , called the Dark Isis, should be avoided by the frivolous for only well trained initiates of Gnosis, can find their way back from such a journey!
  • The Dark Night of the Soul is on the "other side of the Mirror" that reflects form and the nature of the observer....on the dark side, there is no reflection only endless reception and we lose our self-image and become the Darkness observing itself!
Personality wise, the Queen of Cups personality will often be very popular, as she seems to "fit in" were-ever she goes which is due to her highly developed intuition.

When the Queen of Cups is thrown during a reading:

  • The querent is showing issues surrounding motherhood.
  • Suggesting emotional empowerment, as the querent is able to express feelings honestly, blamelessly and without judgment.
  • Implies too much imagination about issues and not enough action taken to solve them.
  • Emotional and Intuitive capabilities that show  highly evolved interpersonal interactions and psychic abilities.
  • Implies the querent is extremely empathetic and thus must watch out for moodiness and fluctuating feelings.
  • Suggests that one inspires from within and could be a time of Deep inner musings, thoughts focused within where the mind is engulfed in Imagination. 
  • That a mature woman of deep sexual and fertility powers, where everything in her life is related to nourishment, sexual exchange, passionate giving and receiving maybe involved in the life of the querent or is the querent.
  • Motherhood, or new ideas formulating for a creative line of work.
  • An ethereal person of the highest ideals imagined....sometimes unattainable or too high in the physical  world of constant change.
  • Wisdom and virtue, Can denote a perfect spouse and a good mother.
