Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- Ace of Cups & The Witches Tarot- Ace of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot Ace of Cups,


Shows a magnificent Grail, filling with "White- spermatic- energy", empowering the surroundings, with Spider Woman's (Native American Mother Nature) Web emanating from it. For those of us who do not know the Myths of Spider Woman; She is a Native American description of the Great Mother Goddess who wove the fabric of the universe. Today we acknowledge time-space, as a woven grid of energy, the similarity simply means that we have proven the Myth.


The Qabalistic Thoth Aceof Cups represents the secrets of mystical Water in its original form of The Universal Collective Unconscious. The Wyrd (weaving) of Atoms into flowing waves/currents of conscious energy we often call "emotions".

Water is the Feminine compliment (magnetic) , the Moon- vaginal- womb to the masculine- electric- Sun-phallus. Thus the Ace of Cups implies the Womb of the Great Mother Filling with the Semen-Energy of the Great Father. The process of conception is beginning, but not formed yet. This is a seed of consciousness, that is just being fertilized.

The Thoth Ace of Cups presents the Grail floating Upon the Dark Sea of  the Great Mother Binah,  accompanied by Lotuses, two in one, that fill the Grail-cup with Life Fluid. This Life Fluid is either represented as Water, Wine or Blood according to the selected purpose of the symbolism. In such symbolism, the Lotus can be replaced by a Blood Red Rose, thus representing the Blood Red Sea of Binah, the 3rd Sephiroth as She becomes the 5th Sephiroth- Geburah, from which all purified Life flows. The Blood Red Rose is the image for the "Rosy Cross" symbol.

The Witches Tarot- Ace of Cups, represents the  all-encompassing Maternal Force, symbolized as water pouring dramatically from the Silver Cup, in 4 streams, that represent the 4 mystical elements, back into the source lake underneath. The pink lotus is a flower of love and fertility. Silver is the metal that represents the Moon which is another symbol for the Goddess.

Remembering that all Aces are the "seed" of a force, and essence. So no matter how much imagery we use to describe "The Womb with a View" (I've called the Divine Feminine
this since I was very young), She is the invisible action that creates the "egg" or "seed" of idea. I Dea, is Greek for "I Goddess". Hence, She is a Force that makes Form from Understanding the difference between the  "I" (The All Seeing "I") and the "Am" (ideas) by birthing "I Am Me" (consciousness). To represent this amazing Force, in any form of metaphor is difficult at most, and a mystery in the least. It's like trying to identify after time past, the one who has left a disturbance in the Air. You know someone has been there, but no conclusive clue on their identity. The Divine She is the Seed of all Life; of Energy as Form.

When thrown in a divination, the Ace of Cups, represents, the seed of a form, and idea beginning to formulate; a birth starting in the mind as a zygote that will take about a year to manifest its true form.

The seed of anything is a phenomena in itself and this is also true of the Four Aces that are the seeds of an alchemical element.  It is important to remember, that the Aces are not the state of Air, Water, Fire or Earth itself, but rather a  mysterious seed of those elements.
Hence, interpretations are most troubling because of the fact that Aces are above and beyond the numbered cards as Kether is above and beyond the rest of the Tree of Life.

Kether, the 1st Sephiroth, is said to be symbolized only by the topmost point of the Yod of Tetragrammaton (777 by Aleister Crowley).
It may help us to understand the Aces better if we realize that they form a link between the "small cards" (minor arcana) and the Princesses, who rule the heavens around the North Pole. Now, I don't mean they're are a "ring around the rosy" of female gods dancing in the sky around the North Pole.

Rather,The Great Pyramid is the Meridian and the rule of the elements goes East, in the order of Tetragrammaton, which is Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Thus, the Aces & Princesses of Wands, roughly covers Asia.
Ace of Cups  & Princess of Cups, the Pacific Ocean.
The Ace and Princess of Swords the Americas.
The Ace and Princess of Disks Europe and Africa.

Studying the Shield of David and/or the Pentagram, which represents the Spirit ruling the Four Elements (The symbol for the Triumph of Man) may help in furthering the understanding of the Princesses reign that imposed limitations. 

Aces are  like "single celled" organisms in the Great Sea, seemingly so insubstantial that they are almost impossible to see unless we use the magnification provided by Understanding the Princesses who build "All that is substance" from the insubstantial.
For instance, nothing seems more insubstantial than the Essence of Spirit, Fire.
 
The Hebrew Letter Shin, Fire, has to do double duty as the letter for Spirit as well for Fire and both, is the Passionate Heat of Goddess/God that is known as the Lust to be and as is Lust, it is hard to grasp its beginning. But this Fiery Lust of the Greater Mind (Macrocosm) is the essence of the Big Bang, a Divine Frenzy that began the Microcosm. This is just as hard to understand as the thought that in  a moment of Self-analysis a Singularity (I) began all the diversity around, in us and as us.

Thus Kether, the Power behind the Aces, is too expansive to pin point, and thus the Aces simmer in waves of invisible possibility, whose direction is supplied by the Princesses.
 
I've heard the Aces compared to ovum but that is in error. The Aces are the essence of ovum, and can only become Ovum, that is impregnated by the spermatozoa of the male electric force, within the Womb that is represented as a Qabalistic Tarot Princess.
The Ace of Wands, is Spirit/Kether, considered masculine expressive energy, which is an essence of Everything but is No-thing; it is the Movement within the Motion of Energy that must be received by a "vessel" and/or Womb, to become something. As a stirring of desire that must be received by a mind, to become an idea. As you can foresee, Spirit is representative of Kether, acts like the essence of  electric-fire but is as contemptuous of definitive explanation, as is  any attempt to explain the inexpiable such as the Magnetic- Ace of Cups- as the essence of conscious emotion. We attempt to identify Spirit as both Fire and Water, and/or masculine and feminine aspects of electromagnetic energy; he being electric and she being magnetic.  That's about as far as the brain can go with the aspects of Kether- The One Energy and the One Mind, and more often than not, the Aces.

When the ACE OF CUPS is thrown during a Divination, it implies:
  • Not over-extending or under-extending emotions and reflecting accurately what is going on with your nature.
  • As an open channel, you are experiencing empathetic bursts of feelings, sentiment, sympathy or enthusiasm.
  • A new emotion or insight.
  • The opening spiritual, or psychic channels.
  • The gift of Love. A surrender to inner beauty and emotions of pleasure.
  • Applying new attitudes to which brings rewards when in tune with the Law of Love.
  • The Vessel or House of the True Heart, joy, contentment, abode, nourishment, abundance, fertility...an enhancement of good feelings.
