Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot -Princess of Cups & The Barbara Walker Tarot-Princess of Cups/Elaine

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-Princess of Cups & The Barbara Walker Tarot-Princess of Cups/Elaine: The

Princess of Cups Tarot Card, represents mastery of emotional objectivity achieved by working through, manipulation, jealousy, possessiveness and seduction.

  1. The turtle in the sea shell symbolizes, the capacity to offer emotional loyalty and longevity to others by being objective and non-possessive. 
  2. The Swan coming out of her head, represents emotional security and the ability to communicate her feelings, desires, and concerns in realistic and meaningful ways ( the dolphin emphasizes this ability).
  3. The crystals on her gown, show a crystal clear ability to look at things as they are instead of what see wants to see.
  4. The free floating lotus blossom shows her trusting heart. She is devoid of a possessive and controlling heart.

This is Elaine the Virgin Moon-goddess of Arthurian legend, who was the keeper of the Graäl in the Graäl temple, where she wove the tapestries of life, death, an fate. Elaine was reported to be  the "Dispenser of Joy" but also a source of hidden knowledge, bestower of mystical insight and the gift of wisdom.
She is shown on both the Barbara Walker Tarot and the Thoth Tarot.

The Pagan Celts, called Elaine- the Lily Maid, Elen, Helen, Hel, or Hel-Aine but no matter what she was called she was consideredthe divine queen of ancient Britain. 

She is shown on the Barbara Walker Tarot, holdingthe red Graäl, which represented the legendary sacred womb symbol, the Great Cauldron of Regeneration.
The Lily Maid was another virginal aspect of the Divine Feminine Trinity, known in pagan Britain as Snow White (Virgin), Red Rose (Mother) and the black Crone of Death. According to these old legends, the womb of the Lily Maid, was the cauldron in which living forms were continually recycled.

Shown on the B.W.-Tarot Card, is a rendition of the old scene from the Gundestrup Cauldron, manufactured in the first century BCE, depicting a Caldron, painted with a Priest holding a man like figure head-first over the "red Graäl" or a shield shaped double-lobed yoni, preparing him for rebirth. As usual, the female gate of death and rebirth was attended to by a "moon dog" and/or hound of Hel-Aine.


To the Hermetic Qabalist, the Princess of Cups represents Earth of Water and is the facility of crystallization. In this sense, crystallization is the ability to give substance to idea (the first matter), to support life, and to form the basis for chemical combustion.

 Again, in mythology, the Princess of Cups represents Elaine, the virgin moon Goddess who was the keeper of the Graäl/Grail in the Grail Temple. She was also called a Fate who wove the tapestries of life, death, and fate.

The Turtle symbolized on the Thoth card represents the gift of Wisdom that she bestowed
  • The swan represents mystical insight.
  •  While the dolphin-fish represents "the first matter" {Primal Water} which she weaves with Earth Specific to create her Tapestries.
  • Of course, the lotus which is sacred to Isis, the All Mother.
  •  And the Veil which represents the Veiled Aphrodite.
It should be understood, that the physical world is a reflected world (Moon symbolizes reflected light) veiled by reflection from the other 99.6% of yourself! The human body is seen as a spiritual glamor, since it is less than 1% of your Spiritual Presence in this Universe. It is for the sole purpose of Splendor which is another way of saying intimate sensuality. Here also, ideas get the tapestry of emotions, which make them  sensually enjoyable. ..or not.

The Thoth Princess of Cups and The Ace of Cups are inseparable:
The Ace of Cups represents the root of the powers of Water. This is Water, in its most arcane form, Life-Fluid , (Dew of the Mother/Moon light) symbolically represented as Water, Milk, Blood or Wine.

The Ace of Cups is the compliment to the Ace of Wands, as is the Sun to the Moon and the Lingam to the Yoni and represents the essential form of the Holy Grail/Graäl ("The Womb with a view").
The Great Mother, Binah, is often symbolized as the Dark Sea and in the Thoth Deck Ace of Cups, She is both the Sea and the Lotus: the Lotus ( two in one) being the Fertile expression of the Great Mother.
Descending from above, a ray of milk white light representing the "Holy Ghost" or the "Life giving Milk of Mother" and beneath the Graäl we have the Moon. The Waves of Life-Fluid, are shown as a web of fluid energy from which the tapestry of Creation is woven . To many Native Nations, this would symbolize the Work of the Great Spider Woman, who weaves "white strands" of light into all living things.

THE PRINCESS OF CUPS, represents the Earthly part of Water (Life-Fluid), in particular, the faculty of  crystallization. The Princess of Cups, represents the Graäl's power of manifestation, She is the power of water that gives substance to idea, to support life and to form the basis for  chemical combination, that is often called solution.

The Princess of Cups in the Thoth Deck is represented as a Dancing figure robbed in a flowing, crystal edged garment, all of which indicates her flowing and crystallizing abilities. Hence, we can determine that she is an active rather than passive force from the Great Mother.  This determination if continued in the imagery of the Swan taking wing.; The Swan is the symbol of AUM (of oriental philosophy) that is the vibratory harmonic of  Universal Creation.  The Princess of Cups, also bears a covered cup from which s Tortoise is issued. 

Here, once again, Lady Frieda Harris represents Hindu Philosophy, as the Tortoise is symbolic of a steadily moving platform supporting the Elephants "who hold  the world on their backs" . In other words, represents the foundation of Life-Force  for the Earth which may seem slow in evolutionary terms, but is persistent and undaunted.

The Dolphin, that is disporting in a foamy- sea, symbolizes the power of creation know as the Royal Fish, which is also known as the first matter.

The Princesses of Wands, Cups, Swords and Disks, all give a character to the Root Power they are associated to. The Princesses are called the Thrones of The Great Mother, as they represent on Earth, Mother's rule. Root powers, represented as Aces, are without will and thus not focused. The Princesses are the Intelligently Focused Energy of "Will to Form" of a Root Power and are thus aware and more personalized intelligence, with conscious characteristics. These Great Daughters of the Great Mother, Rule the Elementals of their suite, and  have their own peccadilloes. Therefor, it behooves the practitioner of magick to know them.
For instance:the Princess of Cups has an infinitely gracious character that is  voluptuous, sweet, gentle, and kind, Romance, and the perpetual  dream  of rapture are her very nature. Unlike the Volcanic nature of the Princess of Wands. To the shallow thinker, the Princess of Cups may seem indolent and selfish, but that fact that she goes about her work silently and effortlessly dispels such interpretations.
These Princesses are Elemental Intelligence, and can be communicated with, however, their nature is in direct union with a Force beyond the practitioners control.  Tried and true rituals of magick  are recommended so that these forces can be contained before there is too much overwhelming  flow. 

In the Case of the Princess of Cups, the practitioners personality could be overwhelmed by the extreme dreamy rapture of  her nature and become unable to operate in the day-to-day world.

Many of us don't realize that the Archetypes of the basic 16 types of core personality, as represented in the Court Cards and seen in our world, are Elemental Forces. This is because of the thinking of "Divide and Conquer" which enslaves our minds,  we have forgotten that our human bodies, are Elemental Beings! And those born in the time of the Princess of Cups, have inherited command over the Water!
The Whole Self is a Spiral Entity (Spirit) of the trinity of the Divine Creative- I AM ME and not of the Elements, but is the transformer of them. Hence, we, the Divine's own inheritor Children, are not seeking to become more Spiritual, for that would be like a fish in the Ocean  looking for water, we are seeking to be more discerning in our Psychic force of Creation!

Spirit is "Spiritual", being infinite and eternal, therefore "more or less" of spirit, is a ridiculous concept. Each of us has succeeded in becoming a united Life Force of "Will to Force" and "Will to Form"; united with that which this union activates, The Alive Form.  We are attempting the Whole Union of Master (Spirit) and Masterpiece (Form )which is often called "As above, so Below".  Hence, Enlightenment is a misconception, we are I AM (Force of existence)who builds a Me (Manifested Awareness) out of light and the knowledge of the Universe is already achieved, obviously "truth is made manifest"!

Therefore, in the Trinity of objective self, I AM ME, the  Me needs to seek nothing, it must operate only by the Will of the I AM, that declares self-awareness through the process of condensing the First Material-thought into "lower and lower" frequencies until it becomes self-conscious thought that can be made manifest;  as this is how creation can be examined sensually! Isn't that what "Sensors" are for... up close examination? Hence, The Body is a "Sense of Presence", as the fish is a Sense of Ocean.

As a fellow I AM ME, I  know that I did not come to seek spirituality (I Am That), I have come to seek a sense of discernment so that I can examined my creativity (imagination) for errors that may impeded The Great Work; this discernment enhances the "As above so Below"! I am a Hermetic Qabalist, because that knowing of myself, aids me in the purpose that I AM, the purpose of us all; TO BE the Above Self as a Below Self, i.e., ME! I Am, a microwave of the Divine Collective who is Psyche/Spirit/ Divine Creative, that defines knowledge through being! As a Qabalist, I have also Married the Four Daughters, (Four Elohim of the Four Elements) but of this you must find out the meaning for the rituals are  delicate and complicated. 

When the Princess of Cups is thrown during a reading, the querent is often experiencing:
  • Emotional detachment that is free of jealousy.
  • Being rapturous and gentle, kind and tender.
  • A personality full of romance, dreams and loving vision but also a dispenser of hidden insight and wisdom (see Elaine the Moon Goddess).
  • That the Querent is an emotional risk taker, with psychic abilities.
  • The Querent trusts their feelings and impressions.
  • The Querent is open to  rapture  and gentleness while being kind and full of romance.
  • She is voluptuous and very dependent on others but at the same time very helpful to them.
  • The Princess of Cups can also represent a kind, sensitive young person who has strong psychic and artistic abilities.
  • The Princess of Cups may also bring news of a birth or indicate a re- birthing of self-image in-order to trust others again after a romantic break.
  • Ready to take emotional risks again. 
If ill defined, the Princess of Cups could mean:
  • The Princess of Cups, suggests flightiness, shallowness, and inability to accept reality.
  • One who is unfortunate in love because of an overdependent nature.
  • All in all, the Princess of Cups represents a gentle person, of psychic and great creative ability who is beautiful, sensual, intimate and not afraid to both give and take emotional support. A lovely person.

  • When this card is thrown for a woman: it states that she is objective,and realistic of heart.
  •  Emotionally loving and realistic rather than attached and clinging.
  • When thrown for a man, the Princess of Cups represents:
  •  Their inner feminine nature (anima) that is committed to offering emotional longevity while being loyal in realistic non-possessive ways.  Therefore this personality card may represent both genders.
  • The princess maybe a person in one's life who is one's own age or younger and who may be teaching one lessons about emotionally letting go.
  • This is a water sign card that is associated with Pisces, Cancer, and Scorpio and/or the people born within these time frames who is known to the Querent.
