The Thoth Tarot-ACE OF CUPS and the Night Sun Tarot-ACE OF CUPS of the 1st Sephiroth- Kether:
you have any knowledge of the latest in Astrophysics, you may
understand that Kether is the "Dark energy that becomes-Dark Matter" and "pushes the Universe along, which is how we know it, since both are really not understood by us. Kether, the CrowningSource of All,
is not known to us objectively, but it's presence is subjectively
understood as a movement within all that moves; an invisible
thermodynamic energy, a beginning of vibration/freguency.
Again, the 4 Aces,
are attributed to Kether and they represent the most pure forms of
energy in essence rather than form. Each is a specific type, and density of Energy Essence
that we call the "seed" of Pythagorean and/or Alchemical Elements. THE ACE OF CUPS:
Kether in Briah, the Creative World, depicting the influence of Kether on the Mental Level.
The Ace of Cups is the Root Powers of Water, an element used to
symbolize the Unconsciousness and emotions when in combination with Fire, which is known as Water's Consort.
The Thoth Tarot Version
of this Card shows the wave action characteristic of physical water
implying the activity that encloses and directs pure consciousness, as the Womb of consciousness is the Universal Collective Unconscious and/or The Divine Creative. As
the Universe of Energy is woven out of waves of consciousness, ideas
that are understood. Thus, the Web in the background. The Feminine that Weaves this Web of frequencies and/or Microwaves of Self radiated from the Core or Root of Self, the Galactic Center of the Milky Way., was known to many nations of Native Americans as Spider Wombman.
According to Crowley, the White Light descending is depiction of the Holy Ghost and/or Holy Spirit.The Holy Spirit
represents the All of Spiral-Energy and or Microwave frequencies of the Universal
Self; each spiral a circle, each circle a dimension of
The Cup, is the Psyche Wombof Form and/or the "Holy Graäl" ("Holy
Grail"), and on the Thoth Tarot, emerges from the Lotus (Crown) implying the idea or root power of Womb;the seed of the concept of conception. Therefore,
the Ace of Wands is the root power of Phallus. The Ace of Cups is a symbol for the-Yoni Moon, as the Ace of
Wands is symbolic of the Phallus- Sun.
Seen on the Thoth Tarot- Ace of Cups, the dark Sea of Binah supports the Two in One Lotuses that fill
the cup with Life Fluid/"Mother's Milk", be it symbolized, by water, milk, wine or alchemical Gluten. Two in One, is the realization of the Womb and Phallus as an root power of multiplicity.
The Night Sun- Ace of Cups, shows the Chalice like Graäl filled with a fertile growth of both Lotus, goddess symbol of the Oriental cultures and the 5 petal Rose-goddess symbol of Western cultures. The radiants of Life Giving Force, are shown as straight radiants on a background of Blue with sacred geometry symbols. The Upside down triangle symbol for the element of water is shown above the Cup.
The Qabalistic- ACE OF CUPS, represents the emotional
world of "feeling" and/or intuition that resides in the Unconscious; the time of Summer and the Space of East. This is the
symbol of receptivity, psychism, instincts, fears, memories, desires,
dreams, fantasy, and all the other aspects of the subconscious. This is
the essence of imagination, what I call "the womb-with-a -view", for in her ideas are gestated in "Understanding", which conceives all things.
colors of Cups
, are those of water, lakes, ponds, oceans, rivers, rain
and the blood. If you remember your biology, blood is blue until it is
oxidized (You may have notice your blue veins). This is the Holy Grail
sitting within the emotional nature (would be a fitting symbol for the
Emotional Body of our Aura) which is represented by the blue cup. It is
the conscious state of emotional integrity, as represented by the double
rainbow on the Thoth Card. The inside and outside are without dichotomy. As above so below
can also be seen here.
The blue Grail,
is Wisdom and the Cup symbol is Compassion, Reason and Discipline, the three ingrediants of Love, making it apparent that Love and
Wisdom are in union as a flow of nurturing, healing, supporting
emotional force (as seen by the radiance entering the cup). Love and
Wisdom in equal balance.
The serpent handles of the cup
symbolize the regenerative nature of this balance, as the serpent sheds it's skin to transform into a more expanded being; our Soul also sheds personalities, in order to transform.
lotus base represents the trusting heart who never over-extends itself
emotionally but unfolds itself naturally without resistance or holding
itself back. In fact, this Love-Wisdom union is the woven fabric of Life
itself, as symbolized by the web of Spider Woman (Native American Mother of the Universe) that is seen behind the cup.
Scholars have little doubt
that the Christianized version of the Auturian "Holy Graäl" legend, had no authentic tradition of the lost wine- cup of Christ.
The vessel was entirely pagan
and feminine as another transformation of the Celts' Cauldron of Regeneration. This Gaäl was the symbolic female-body symbol of life giving blood. As in Hindu symbology, the cup was often shown in conjunction with a male symbol, just as the Grail appeared in conjuction with the holy lance.
The legendary quest for the Grail, is a vast pagan epic, as depicted by its Cistercian ornamentations. In the later Christian story, every anecdote, and detail in this inspired work is merely a travesty of the Celtic Quest for the submerged woman/ Lady of the Lake and/or Dr. Carl Jung's "inner perfect woman" the Anima.
According to the Christian stories, the Grail had some very suspicious origns. It was carved out of a jewel that fell from Satan's crown (Kether) as he descended into the underworld. In many texts, the jewel was identified as the Phoenix stone, Lapis Exilis, Lapis Judaicus, or Theolithus (God stone). Its magic renewed one's youth or supplied one with inexhaustible amounts of food. [Spence, 246]
The connection to the Philosopher's stone or the magic Gluten is easily seen here.
Nevertheless, the Divine Feminine is the great Womb of all form, including microwavesand therefore resides in all of us as does "mother's blood", for no child has any blood from the father. This Divine Anima, is worth knowing, for she will release us from the fantasy of man-made identity. She knows her children, and they are not man made.
