Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 4 of Cups-Luxury & The Legends Tarot- Four of Cups

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- 4 of Cups-Luxury and The Four of Cups-Legends Tarot, differ somewhat in presentation of their meanings. The Legends tarot is like many other tarot decks, in that it presents less meaningful art in the "small cards". What many tarot readers forget, is that the "small cards" are another form of the arcane, and are about objective issues, that are "in your face" right at this moment and have just as much to do with spiritual, mental and emotional development as the more subtle Major cards.

The Legends Tarot, presents what is now the familiar blue-background, the Wolf Moon and the silver moon chalice, complete with central moon stone and side crescents.
All symbols of the Goddess who rules the element of water.  Besides the title, the only reason we visually know this to be the four of cups are the four wolf moon sigils above and below the moon cup.

What is offered as description with this card, is that one should look around and enjoy the moment, instead of being all wrapped up in created dramas. Implying a kind of emotional weariness with all the "soul searching" and needing to cherish the moment of life.  All good advice, but unless you know the little booklet that accompanies these tarot cards, by heart, there are no visual clues as to the meaning of this card. Love the art though.

THOTH TAROT 4 of CUPS-LUXURY:
 
From the Golden Dawn Texts:
" In Chokmah is the Radix of blue and thence is there a blue color pure and primitive, and glistening, with a spiritual Light which is reflected into Chesed. And the Sphere of its Operation is called Tzedek or Justice and it fashionith the images of material things, bestowing peace and mercy: and it ruleth the sphere of the action of the planet Jupiter. And Al is the title of a God strong and mighty, ruling in Glory, Magnificence and Grace. And the Archangel of Chesed is Tsadkiel, the Prince of Mercy and Beneficence, and the Name of the order of Angels is Chasmalim, Brilliant Ones, who are also called the Order of Dominions. The Sephira Chesed is also called Gedulah or Magnificent and Glory."
 
With such flowery words of ritual adoration, it is often difficult  to realized that this 4th Sephiroth, Chesed -Mercy, is Part of your Inner inheritance as a Divine Child;the Inner self of you, The Spirit, mind and physical form of you are compose of these 10 "states of energy conscious"; these 10 Sephira of Force and Form that compose the Tree of Life. Thus the value of inner self meditation and skrying of the tarot cards should be apparent to one who is interested in knowing themselves. In time, the "inner" and "outer" self, become One Self, who is master of all and slave of none.
Past blogs dwell in depth on these 10 Spheres of energy conscious, so feel free to click on past blogs for further insight.
 
 THE THOTH 4 OF CUPS, in the Qabalistic tarot is called Luxury or Lord of Blended Pleasure. The Planet is the Moon and the sign is Cancer.  The Angels of the Decan are: Hayayel and Mevamayah. Practice calling these names, you may be surprised at the vibratory change.

The 4 of Cups is Chesed in Briah, here Chesed (mercy) is influencing the unconscious mental realm. The alternate flow of the Moon is mitigated in Cancer, as the Moon naturally rules in this sign. Changing cycles are still there, but passive, and slow.

When looking at the Crowley-Harris, Thoth 4 of Cups Card, we see the Upper Golden Solar cups overflowing but not the lower, implying that the Pleasure is real but with reservations.  The caveat being; pleasure but not without some anxiety and discomfort.  Here the Luxurious feeling of pleasure is short and indifference soon takes over.  As the multiple twisted-stems of the one lotus show; the energy of luxury is divided among multiple flows implying too many diverse issues are involved for emotions to stay stable. 4 is a "dead end" number so ending is the only place to go. Action must be taken soon. 
 
When the Four of Cups or 4 of Cups-Luxury is thrown during a Divination:

  •  For a time, say 4wks or 4 months the querent shall experience emotional luxury, which is the capacity to make other people feel emotionally satisfied, secure and peaceful.
  •  A period of contentment but this is the edge of completion and a new vision of love is being seen. Thus there is both  the gift and challenge of a fallow period.
  • There maybe boredom,  and apathy with a sprinkling of discontent as the querent awaits inspiration. 
  • Here there is type of balance that is caught between the worlds of thought and action.  A good time for clarity and refining things down to a simple truth.
