Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 10 of Cups: Satiety & The B.O.T.A. Tarot- 10 of Cups

The Tarot of EliTo reiterate, MALKUTH, Earth, is the 10th Serphiroth on the Tree of Life, and is the placement of the 4 Tens.

The Thoth- TEN OF CUPS is known as SATIETY, and is attributed to Mars in Pisces. Crowley calls this card, The Lord of Perfected Success, as this is the influence of MALKUTH in the unconscious Mental World known as Briah.

Satiety, is word meaning, filled to the point of excess, though it is hard to argue that excessive happiness is a negative thing; However, it could be distracting.

What is exceptional  about this card, is that the general astrological meaning of Mars in Pisces doesn't apply. Pisces is a watery sign, and Mars would signify a dispersal of energy to a point of frustration.
However, the meaning here is that fiery Mars causes
the Waters of Pisces to rush furiously into Briah. bringing great success on the Material plane of Malkuth. Hence, the imagery of this card expresses the opinion that all happiness is inspired from above, i.e. comes from the Divine. One could say that Happiness, is a higher-inner state of energy consciousness flowing outwardly.

To be sure, when Tarot is used for Divination, it is best applied to Mundane matters, where as the meaning may be different if applied to a more spiritual plane. The Placement of the cards, in the reading will clarify this statement.

The Thoth Tarot-10 of Cups-Satiety, is as objectively far as you can go with the alchemical element of water. The Ten- Sephirotic image of the Tree of Life is complete here; the as above and so below are connected. Here water receives the influence of the 10, which is also Malacha (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 by the paths of the Tree of Life depicted on the card, for the skeleton of it, are in the Red of Mars. 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.

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.Therefore, the 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", [Jahaladine Rumi] then happiness is not influenced by change and you are happy being you in any moment of time. The warning here is that the repose satisfaction brings, is over, time to get moving again!

Yet, through all this supposed  Martial doom and Pisces gloom, when this card is thrown during a reading, it means that emotional matters in the material world 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 to avoid debauch, as soon you'll be called on to preform at your best."

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 and satisfaction in material things lasts! Hence, the Ten of Cups-Satiety implies saturation is complete and it is soon to flow past the point of saturation.
 The B.O.T.A. Tarot-10 of Cups,
displays the 10 silver and blue cups of the water element, as the Tree of Life.
Everything is in order, and all Ten Sephira are communicating.
There really isn't any display of satiety, for that must already be known by the B.O.T.A  card reader who is a graduate of the correspondence courses of the Builders of the Adytum.

The Hermetic Qabalah meanings of the Thoth Tarot apply.






When the Ten of Cups-Satiety is thrown it implies that:
  • 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.
  • Matters definitely arranged as wished, permanent and lasting success.
  • This meaning of material success is reinforced if the 10 of Cup's lands on the position of "Beneath you" or "of House and Home", on a Celtic Cross layout. In fact, that would be paramount for this card, as it is a 10 of Malkuth (Kingdom) in a Earthly existence position.

If ill dignified by the accompanying cards:
  • Wantonness, waste, and excess are implied.

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