Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 10 of Cups: Satiety and the Jungian Tarot-10 of Cups: Pain and Sorrow

The Tarot of Eli The Thoth-Ten of Cups-Satiety:
is a card represents deep emotional contentment that radiates outwardly from the inner self. 

The back ground pattern that the radiant cups rest on is the Qabalistic Tree of Life which is the symbol of the "Supreme Being" showing that this card symbolizes complete emotional, mental, and physical contentment. However, since the Astrological aspect of this card is Mars in Pisces, it also states that due to the dynamic vitality and sometimes violent motion of Mars, the peaceful waters  (emotions) of Pisces are soon to be disturbed. Thus the cups are images of the Aries ram, the sign in which Mars is exalted.
The disturbance of Martial force keeps us from becoming too mentally and emotionally placid which should not surprise any of us since change is the only constant in life. So for now, enjoy the deep satisfaction of a job well done that comes from an alignment of all the states of energy consciousness that we are composed of. This is an experience of a deep spiritual nature of satisfaction that knows soon it will be time to move on.

The Thoth Ten of Cups, Satiety, although in the seemingly stable form of the Tree of Life, has a conflicting element that causes a tilting of the Cups, spilling water from the Great Lotus that overhangs the whole system.

As previously explained, this conflict is from Mars in Pisces. 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. Here is the absolute end of a thing, with no return.

Ten is a number that when added together [1+0 =1), you end up at the beginning. 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 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  and all seems well...but then we know how long happiness in material things lasts!

The Jungian Tarot-10 of Cups: Pain and Sorrow, focuses on the older Rosicrucian astrology which considers Saturn in Cancer as "most malefic", which Robert Wang places as the astrological assignation on this card. For here, rather than the Hermetic Qabalah's positioning of the 10 of cups as Mars in Pisces, he has stated that this card is Saturn in Cancer; earth/self-consciousness plunged into the uncertainty of water/collective unconsciousness, which would be like a rain drop falling into the Ocean. As Carl Jung would describe it, it is the individual perception of reality destroyed by the immersion into the Universal Collective Unconscious: Permanently destroyed, without return. A type of Emotional death card, or even physical death, if surrounded by more negative cards.
 
Therefore, we are witnessing a total end of a cycle, as Saturn is "Grandfather time", who is known to "eat his own children". What is previously known is gone, as a person's world is turned end over end, in a train wreck of profession, divorce, loss of wealth, banishment, loss of health and/or loss of love.  What is implied here, is so overwhelming that the resignation of a philosopher is  the only way to deal with it: What is implied, in the traditions of most Western Mystery schools and may of Eastern bent, is that we are the architects of our own experience. As in Hindu schools, it is acknowledged we get what we need by choosing unconsciously what is best for our spiritual development. Severity, therefore, is known as a corrective and not an end. 

Whereas the Hermetic Qabalah's Thoth Tarot sees an end of a cycle, that is devastating to be sure as it will not be repeated, but also accelerating into a new cycle, the Jungian interpretation seems to see only end. I think I favor the Thoth card's interpretation more, for Ends are where Beginnings are established in the philosophy of the Infinite Qabalah. For to build something, let's say a house,we must establish a foundation/ "the bottom" (end) before we can construct the beginning and/or "the top". Therefore the axiom, "to have a beginning you must have an end" suits this card very well.


Yet, through all this supposed martial doom and gloom when the 10 of Cups card is thrown during a reading, 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, for soon you'll be called on to preform at your best."

  • In the next 10 weeks or 10 months you will experience a sense of deep vitality and energy radiating outward accompanied by feelings of contentment and satiety flowing through all aspects of your life.
  •  A heart felt contentment. 
  • This could also represent a deeply satisfying relationship with the Pisces people in your life; those born during the time of February 21 to March 21.  
 Thank you for your interest, comments and supportive donations.  May you live long and prosper!
