Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 2 of Cups-Love & The Wild Wood Tarot- Two of Vessels-Attraction.

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot-2 of Cups-Love, compared to The Wild Wood Tarot- Two of Vessels-Attraction:

In the Hermetic Qabalah, the 2, of any Tarot card suit, represents the Word and the Will. Therefore, the Thoth 2 of Cups is the first manifestation in the Suit of Water which is called Love, as the Word or Logos is the 1st Sephiroth, and the "I  Will Be" of the Logos has become "Will to Force" (Chokmah) and "Will to Form" (Binah); this may seem confusing since we seem to have 3 individuals here rather than 2. However, with Love there is a mutual annihilation of the individuals by the process of Union, so 1+1= 2 +1=3, which then becomes One.

Are you really confused now? Well, the "first Movement" of energy, is called Kether, Eheieh, or Logos, and it is not an individual of anything and is called the "Word" rather than a "being". Kether is "I Will Be", which is Eheieh, in Hebrew; therefore, it isn't anything yet, more like a disturbance in the Abyss. However, Chokmah, the 2nd Sephiroth is  "Will to Force" , the Masculine aspect of energy and a form of thought called Wisdom, and the 3rd Sephiroth of this Supernal trinity, is called Binah, "Will to Form", a form of Understanding, the Feminine aspect of energy. When the Divine Feminine and the Divine Masculine Unite, there is no male or female present, only the Divine Hermaphrodite exists, the third state of Mind, who is One and who creates All as The Divine Creative and/or The Universal Collective Unconscious. 

Therefore, In the Qabalistic Thoth Tarot, the Two's represent the "first manifestation". On the Qabalistic Tree of Life , Kether is shown to be the 1st Sephiroth of 10 Sephira, and many have thought that this is the first manifestation of conscious energy. Yet Kether is the "limitless light", a movement of Dark Energy, and has no visible end or beginning, which allows no viewing. Therefore Kether is known as the "Dark Sun" or Logos, it is the first "sound" or vibration, without ears to hear...anywhere! Hence, as it can't be seen, nor heard and is the first movement in Dark Energy it is the least understood concept of the Tree of Life sigil.

Therefore the First manifestation falls to the Twos, which represent Chokma (Wisdom) and Binah (Understanding) as the First Lovers. We find this true in our own mind, as Wisdom loves Understanding and vise versa. Therefore, both the Wild Wood Tarot, and the Thoth Tarot, depict 2  beings, either dolphins or humanoids, for there really isn't a manifestation of sexes yet, even though a Union is shown on the Tree of Kether- Chokmah and Binah, as one Triangle; this is a Union of Willed Forces and Willed Identities (forms) that has become what we call the One Mind and/or the Divine Creative. This may even seem more confusing, however, both Chokmah and Binah are at first, receptive and then expressive. Chokmah, a female Hebrew noun, represents the feminine Greek goddess Sophia which means "Wisdom" before becoming male by expressing that Wisdom to Binah. While Binah, the Divine Feminine, called "understanding", receives this Wisdom, thereby preforming as a feminine force. However, Binah, also represents Time, which is Cronus, the commonly known masculine figure of "Grandfather Time". They are called "Lovers" because they can't be separated, as they swap Wisdom and Understanding back and forth as if they were a twisted circle, a figure eight. If you can find away to separate Wisdom and Understanding, I would like to examine your head, for it is only from Understanding that Wisdom comes!

The Four Alchemical Elements of Fire, Water, Air and Earth, may have begun in the concept of "I Will Be"-(Eheieh), which is Kether, but only upon reaching the Deuces are they in appearance as "beginnings" of "Will to Force" and "Will to Form".

Therefore the 2s represent the Elements uncontaminated by influence, hence they appear in their original harmonious condition. The 2s may be considered the A-sexual "fetuses" of the Seed-Aces, but this concept doesn't seem to make understanding these "Higher States" of Conscious energy any easier. All the 2's suggest that when the Negative sees itself as a Positive, and then unites through the "Law of Attraction" with that Positive to Negative flow, we get a "Self Image" and/or a simulation from Understanding- which means by mutual agreement. This may help you with the Mythological concepts of the Ancient's Goddess who in Virgin birth, has a son by some "being" (male is considered Positive Electron and female is considered Negative Electron) and then mates with that son to produce the Universe. If you get this all tangled up with your indoctrinated-emotional concepts of sexuality-----you'll never understand the The Energy Conscious concepts of the 2's. However, I love to tease the brain, so here is another concept of the 2's, "From Herself, she created Him, and then mated with Him so she could become Her".

The 2 of Cups represents Venus in Cancer. Cancer is known as the most receptive of Signs, as it it the House of the Moon, and in that sign Jupiter is exalted. There is a superficial friendship among these three planets ( in astrology, the Moon is seen as a planet). In fact, the sigil for Venus covers the whole tree of life.
The green sea represents the image of creative love. The yellow reflection symbolizes  inspirational love while the blue sky states that love is clear and focused. 
  • The Ancients knew Venus to be the planet of love, beauty and creative power: In Hermetic Qabalah, Venus is a complete symbol of the Qabalistic Tree. 
  • Astrologically Cancer represents, nurturing, comforting, supporting, and healing.
    In the Thoth Deck Two of Cups, the paired Dolphins (the important "First Matter" symbol of the "Royal Art" of alchemy) are intertwined, with the flowing of Love/Nurture/Mother's Milk, coming from the Great Lotus of the Goddess, into the twin Lotus below and overflowing into the Cups resting on a calm Venus-Green Sea. This is a purity of Love, called "unconditional", that the survival mind in the reptile brain is unable to conceive of or often understand, making such an absolute annihilation of the individual in the Overflowing Power of Unity, a mundane wonder. 

    Therefore, the mystery of the "law of attraction", love,  is communication on all states of conscious energy and as shown by the pink lotus blossoms of the Thoth card and the flaming heart between the two anthropomorphic beings on the Wild Wood Tarot card. Love  is  a fiery force, yet it flows as water from the "as above so below", stating that this love flows from the Divine itself. This love is equal and special, as shown by the two overflowing cups on the Thoth card, or two cups on the grassy hill of the Wild Wood Tarot card. Love like this is without self-banishment or self-diminishing, rather it expands both parties and they feel equal to each other while being special to each other.  A state many of us wish for  but we often only experience love of a unequal nature or a equal love with out feeling special, such as a experienced in a professional relationship.
    The Dolphins, on the Thoth 2 of Cups are Alchemical symbols of solution and can be studied by looking into alchemical reference material. The Alchemical Dolphin Symbol is a little to lengthy of a diversion from Tarot, and out of context with the Qabalistic Gnosis, so I won't go into detail. However, John Dee, royal Alchemist in Queen Elizabeth's Court could be an interesting reference point. Also the Royal Dolphin, pertains to the Sun God Apollo who among other Sun god's became the Christian Son of God.

    In summary, the 2's of Tarot,The Will and the Word, united become Form through Wisdom and Understanding.  The Word being Logos, the source of all Vibration and The Will being the first existence of Spirit; the "I AM", the Fertilizer of all idea into the Understanding of Form/Me. This, I AM ME is the Psyche of the Supernal Triangle, the trinity at the top of the Qabalistic Tree of Life.

    This language may sound deliberately obtuse, but this is an invisible Force, that human words cannot give form, so we must unite words in such away that they allude to the mystery, rather than literate identification.

    If you ever have experienced a self-annihilating love where the ego/self-conscious, becomes lost in the Overflowing Sensation of Being One from the Union of Two.....you'll understand that you just can't "wrap" your brain around it. The common statement being." I am at a loss for words...". In the endocrines of Love, there seems to be some kind of heated fluid that is drowning all reason. Then, my friend, you have experience what the Two of Cups alludes to! However, being a purity, from a cyclic united dimension of conscious and unconscious (Sun and Moon) energy, after time, as the tides of the Sea, it will pick up detritus from our culturally "shipwrecked" brain, and slowly progress to a Four of Cups, as the suit develops. Therefore the Second Law of  Thermodynamics comes into play, and "...All things proceed from order to disorder" and entropy slowly degrades the Mystery, with words of fear-based reason and the pink clouds of "the dream" fade away. Just like unconscious "astral trips" slowly fade from our brain, so will love with conditions.

    The 2 of Cupsor Two of Vessels, is also called the Lord of Love under Will, which is its true meaning where Will is Spirit and not some egoistic possession of the brain's minor will and/or self-conscious.
     The 2 of Cups or Two of Vessels, shows the harmony of the Universal Female and the Universal Male, radiating an intensity of joy and  ecstasy that washes away any and all concern; where "Will to Be" , a combination of "I Will Be", "Will to Force and "Will to Form", becomes "I AM ME"! It is this Universal Love, that connects us all together as One, while the massive flow of this connectivity to All, flows through the Union of 2. Such esoteric power, may explain why it seems so overpowering to individual reason and why some say that "love makes the world go around".

    As I have mentioned before, the 2 is the Qabalistic number that represents "the Word and the Will" and is the symbolic number for the first manifestation of an element.
    In the suit of water, this is Venus in Cancer. As stated: Astrologers know Cancer to be the most receptive of signs and is the House of the Moon. Jupiter is most exalted in Cancer. Thus we have arguably the three most friendly Planets, Moon, Venus and Jupiter, linked together in mutual positives. This original menage é trois, is of 3 sine waves woven together (thus, 3 planets as symbols), to make one Harmony, which is now the vibration- core of all forms, also known as the DNA molecule or the 3 Pillars of the Qabalistic Tree of Life.

    For those of us who aren't astrologers, in the element of water that represents consciousness, Love is the force that recovers unity from individuality by the process of mutual annihilation.  In other words, Love changes both individuals and combines them in a new form, and therefore considered a metaphysical solvent, such as water is a physical one. In the Wild Wood Tarot, One Heart is shown being supported by an invisible fiery force between 2  individuals, emphasizing that the 2 beings are of one heart. As always with the Thoth Tarot water cards, the back ground sky is blue, and the "mystical water", flows into cups and/or Vessels, that symbolize the female womb. Interestingly, the Yods, Hebrew for "hand", are expressing their "mystical water", into the vessels of the Wild Wood Card by the joining of two hands in the above fiery force. If you have been following the blogs, you know that a Yod is a masculine force, while a cup is a feminine vessel of form.

    The number 2 refers to Will, but not some egotistical will of an individual but that of the Original Creative, so The 2 of Cups is also known as the Lord of Love under Will, and shows the harmonic technology of  Female and Male in the largest sense of the words.

    When the 2 of Cups or Two of Vessels Tarot card is thrown, during a divination, it means that:

    • In the next two weeks or two months, one will experience the capacity to achieve emotional balance and emotional fulfillment.
    • One will be able to give and receive love in equal proportion.
    • It would be a good time to extend love to the Cancer people in your life. (June 21-July 21). Love to or from family members is also important at this time.
    • This love is not only about two people, it also can be about 2 gifts, 2 talents, 2 resources that you have and that two loves in your life, whatever they may be, are equally balanced and fulfilling in the next two weeks or months. 
    • Harmony, Love, marriage, pleasure, Warm Friendship, mirth, and subtlety.
    • It is about human love on a large scale.
    • It also is a 2 week or 2-month card, representing the accumulation of the above emotions in that time period.
    • Soul mates have found each other or will within 2 months.

    If ill dignified, it can represent:

    • Folly, waste, dissipation and silly action and is far more superficial than when well dignified. In the Thoth Deck Tarot, ill dignity and well dignity, are decided by the surrounding cards and there is no significance supplied to up-side-down cards. This being because this is seen by many Qabalists as an act  of disordered deck handling and not an "act of God".
