I. Analyze and describe 6 of Cups Thoth Tarot
The picture on the card shows us that the flowers form a strange shape with six blooming lotus flowers (Crowley speaks of dance), each one curling around a cup’s mouth. In this magnificent curved shape, we see the movement of the winged butterfly towards the sunlight. This is a new life sprouting from decay. This feeling is not as depicted as in 3 of Cups or 9 of Cups Thoth card because the cups are not full of water; but in contrast to the previous card (5 of Cups Thoth card), the water flow has moved again, where the balance has been restored.
II. Interpretation of 6 of Cups Thoth Tarot
The card shows the life cycles and changes in the world are endless as the depth of unconsciousness. This is the flow of the water of life, illuminated by the sun, releasing energy within it.
The card is more than a description of sexual fullness (pleasure): it represents a feminine archetypal encounter. This “standard mother” is what Faust sought and what Goethe said, “the eternal feminine leads us forward”. The light that (the Sun) shines on the unfathomable water flow (Scorpion) is an old symbol of the result of unconsciousness, at which the inner stream flows.
This refers not only to the conception of a child (3 of Cups Thoth card) but also a general sense of luminescent sexual energy through femininity. It attracts everything that is masculine to the source (sexual desire), within its flow of creative ideas are formed and never dried up.
The card represents cheerful creative stages and deep gratifying experiences. It may show that we enjoy the mission, or it predicts a good time ahead. A necessary change in daily work or in career goals for profound truths may be a prerequisite for this to happen.
The card refers to fullness, joy, and satisfaction. It is not surprising that it also means sensual pleasure, but the inner-related experience is more important to be able to achieve deep feelings of safety, true happiness, and sincere gratitude. After many periods of intense conflict, the card represents a great opportunity for change and a real start.
