Tarot Card Comparisons:The Thoth Tarot-The Knight of Cups-& The Witches Tarot-King of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- Knight of Cups & The Witches Tarot-King of Cups:


The Witches Tarot- King of Cups  is the Knight of Cups in the Thoth Tarot. However, the Knight of Cups implies a meaning more Arcane than that of the King of Cauldrons.
 
The Witches Tarot, King of Cups represents a mature, authoritative man wearing a purple cloak of royal authority. His clothing
 is blue in color, along with the sea shell throne, and silver, sapphire adorned- starfish crown; all pertaining to water, which is this cards element.
A mermaid is embroidered on his chest and cresting silver waves are  embroidered on the hem of his robe. The mermaid represents loyalty, eloquence and truth.

He also wears a sapphire and pearl bejeweled chain of Office, around his neck. Silver is receptive, and the sapphires enhance his psychic powers, and enhance his ability to be fair, and loving.
The lunar peals exemplify the wonderful gems of the sea. 

He sits, with arms at rest, on his throne and seems very relaxed while ruling his domain. The Silver Moon cup in his right hand and the sea shell scepter in left, both support this card as ruled by the metaphysical element of water.

The primary meaning of this card is about a male of hazel eyes, and light brown hair who is both authoritative and responsible. A wise man who excels in his craft. An excellent counselor, who could be and expert in the arts, science or law. A generous and manipulative personality.



If you have been following, by now you know Chokmah (Wisdom), the second Sephiroth, who is the "rule of the Kings" to be the Idea of Maleness.  In Chokmah the Idea of the Law of Attraction has been determine, as Binah, the opposite of Chokmah who is the Idea of the Feminine. In fact, the Greek Word, I Dea, is a Goddess.   The mystery of the Two's is the interaction of opposites that composes the Diversity of the Universe. The Kings or Thoth Knights are Chokmah interacting in various elements.


THE THOTH KNIGHT OF CUPS:

Often called the Lord of the Waves and of the Waters, King of the Hosts of the Sea; King of the Undines and Nymphs. No matter what accolade one uses, his zodiacal attributes are the last Decan of Aquarius and the first two Decans of Pisces.

Since he is and aspect of Chokmah, he is Specific Fire in the World of Primal Water. If we remember that Water represents the unconscious and emotional -consciousness, it is easily seen that the Knight of Cups is a personification of the Force which motivates the currents of the unconscious in a manner similar to the Sun's motivational force over the currents of the Ocean. That is the reasoning behind Crowley's insistence on calling the King's of traditional tarot, Knights. For Knights, are Battle Kings, who are active and motivated. Not some Royal Title, sitting on his royal rear end, demanding that other's act for him.


The Thoth Knight's Cup has a crab issuing forth, which is a symbol of the sign of Cancer. Cancer is cardinal water that is ruled by the Moon that we know to direct the tides. The Crab also relates to Stella Maris, the Star of the Sea known as Isis and later Mari The Great Mother or Binah in the Qaballah. 

Often, the Phoenix or a stylized Peacock head-gear are used as an ancient symbol for Wisdom, which on the Tree of Life is Chokmah.

The legend of the Phoenix is that of a bird that died in flames every five hundred years, and then rose from its own ashes. Interestingly, in the art of Martin Muir, the Phoenix is shown as female.

The Peacock, shown on the bottom right of the Thoth card, also represents the Brilliance that is found in Water.

The Thoth Deck Knight of Cups  is a personification of Bran the blessed that became the Christianized Fisher King, the ancient lord of the Abyss and/or the Rich Fisher Bron; Later, Lancelot, and Galahad. Implying ancient power and strength that is reliably protective of the needy and of womb. Here, the calm surface hides a deep and irresistible force, as does the unconscious hide deep emotions

When the Knight of Cups or King of Cauldrons is Thrown during a reading, it implies:
  • Issues of loyalty to family and relationships
  • A time of giving totally and openly to others.
  • Listening to impulses and intuition, often being guided by instincts.
  • The querent is a counselor or caregiver. Psychologist of Priests who is creative and imaginative.
  • The discipline to suppress his dreams in order to achieve success, believing responsibility comes before self-expression.
  • A mastery of emotions that allows one to change their moods at will.
  • Good-natured, compassionate, merciful and jovial mature male who doesn't let his feelings control him.
  • Skillful negotiator of the emotional roller coaster of life showing mastery of fear, and passion.
  • Ignoring fleeting desires for the more fulfilling higher goals of group and/or spiritual work.

As I examine the thoth deck I find an overall experience of encouragement and support, like it was developed to push me forward on my path. Has that been your overall experience with this tarot deck?

Hi Tootie. As a Qabalist, I have found no other tarot deck, can hold a candle to the Thoth Tarot. It is so much more exoteric that the others. And yes, the Spirit can definitely communicate the occult meanings directly to the brain with these cards.Since the paths are clearly defined in Thoth tarot, as the Major Arcane or Atu,I agree with your conclusions. I find these Thoth Tarot Cards immensely satisfying. Thank you for your comments and interest. May you live long and prosper.

I like his clothing which is the blue colour. The embroidery on his chest is really fantastic to look at. As cresting silver waves have been embroidered on the hem of his robe, the dress looks very nice to look at.

Hi Mandy. Yes, the art of the Witches tarot is well done, and often very beautiful. Many people choose a tarot deck for its appearance rather than its arcane meanings. However, if one knows the Qabalistic meanings of the Tarot, than any deck can be used, as the intuition is well connected to the brain. Thank you for your comments. May you live long and prosper.
