A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
Six of Cups
This card really does look like Pleasure. We have balance again and this card just looks happy and bouncy doesn't it? This card sits in Tiphareth (sphere of the Sun) and on the Tree of Life this card sits in a direct reflection of the Ace of Cups. The Sun is very happy here - think of a gorgeous summer day when you have nothing to do but have fun.
Crowley says, "Pleasure - in the title card- must be understood in its highest sense; it implies well-being, harmony of natural forces without effort or strain, ease, satisfaction." Commencement of steady increase, gain, pleasure. But Commencement Only. As you can see, water is now flowing again from the lotus blossoms but they have only started to fill up!
We have gotten through some heavy emotional turmoil and now we are finding our balance again - with an open heart, keeping our expectations based in reality and staying in the moment. There is an endless river of love and energy for us if we open ourselves up to swim in it.
