I. Analyze and describe 10 of Cups Thoth Tarot
There are ten cups on the card forming in the shape of the Tree of Life. The power of 9 of Cups Thoth card has not yet dissipated and the “Tree of Life” (lotus tree) hangs these cups like Christmas tree bulbs, bringing an image of intellectual roots in life, inner fullness, or light of brilliant sunset. In this card, the task of the soul has been fulfilled, and the great potential system sleeping peacefully in the emotional power (Ace of Cups Thoth card) has been achieved.
The acquired bond now begins to dissolve into an unfathomable place (this can be seen in the tilt of the holy cup), and from the ground that has frozen (Malkuth) emotions (middle column) flow back to the infinity “ocean of love” (Kether).
II. Interpretation of 10 of Cups Thoth Tarot
The card that represents the end and completes the emotional development process that began at the instinct of Aries and towards the ego (Mars) and then culminated in the “awareness curtain” (Pisces). However, because the ancient Pisces archetype in its highest form also prepares a fertile foundation for a new cycle, the outcome (Pisces) is also the original beginning (Mars at the Pisces), divided by only one step in the ladder in eternity. Nameless joy or a fragile ignorance – in terms of the scope of life, they are one!
It is the infinite desire of what takes us, the desire to unite with God and to seek the inner truth. The hunt for eternal values no longer satisfies us because we experience so much that we just want what we cannot have and cannot be happy with what we receive. If we now realize that deep desire cannot be fulfilled on earth, we have come to understand that this desire is the power that leads us to escape from the divine direction.
However, first of all, it is necessary to strengthen the sense of ego. Because when we open up before the unconscious (Pisces) without protecting our ego (Mars) through strong barriers (Saturn), for infinite ones, we will risk being destroyed.
The card shows that we have gone through a good time, but have overcome its climax. Development is no longer strong. Therefore, it is cheering for us to prepare all feelings of gratitude for the upcoming journey and gradually approach new tasks.
This card shows that despite all the peacefulness outside, inner strength is gathering forces to create new intensity. Crowley wrote: “The sign of water (Pisces) has fallen into a dream of bondage and cherished in it, there is a powerful quality of Mars to damage it”. This may develop into instability as well as become a new force in the current relationship, or the escape from the relationship has become tedious and meaningless. In all cases, the card signals the end of the dream of Sleeping Beauty.

1. Upright 10 of Cups Thoth card
This is really a kind of transient happiness, very short and has lost the ability to meet us. It can be something physical and can range from the extreme. We think we will find satisfaction in this for a while but in the end, we quickly became discouraged with it and went to the next thing.
In a relationship, it may involve losing joy in what the relationship brings and therefore, we either have to change the dynamics of the relationship or stay away from it. It is not that we are not happy but the safety means full and so, we went to the end of what it can offer.
