The Tarot of Eli: The Babylonian Tarot- 3 of Cups-Abundance & The Thoth Tarot- 3 of Cups-Abundance

Qabalistic Tarot Card Comparisons.

The Babylonian Tarot-3 of Cups-Abundance, displays abundance as a man carrying a basket of fruit, while 3 "fertility vessels" called hegallu, meaning abundance, overflow with abundant water. 3 trees surround the individual and the cuneiform symbol for the number 3 is shown above. The divination meaning of this card is that of the Thoth Tarot.

The 3 of Cups, is also called the Lord of Abundance. Here Mercury is in Cancer, The Angels of the Decan Rachael and Yehomayah.

Cancer is a watersign, and is under the command of the Moon. Thus we have Cardinal Water, i.e. Consciousness. Thus, The 3 of Cups is perfect affinity with Binah, who is "Will to Form". The 3 of Cups, signifies the influence of Binah in Briah, the mental World.

The rushing water, swift and extravagant as it overflows the Pomegranate cups, represents the gifts of Mercury. The Water arises from a single cup which denotes the "dark calm Sea of Binah" a characteristic of the Unconscious from which all consciousness springs. She is also seen as Persephone (spring), to whom the Pomegranate is sacred. With the Plenty of Persephone as spring, this card represents plenty, hospitality, and abundance. Those who have been following this blog know by now that Binah is "will to form", and underlying force that makes imagination a womb. She is the Will of the Womb of all forms, not the Womb itself for that is reserved to the Action of Chesed the Sphere of Mercy. Again the sexing of this forces is limiting and short on insight. Chesed may be Masculine in its expression of form, and yet it is feminine as it receives the Will of Binah.

What may surprise you, is that none of us are the sex of our bodies. We are Androgynous, as Identities made of the combined forces of Kether-"I Will Be" and Chokman "Will to Force" and Binah, "Will to Form", in that we are both receptive (female) and expressive (male); both magnetic (female) and electric (male). Being Electromagnetic entity, we have great power, "to be or not to be". The body is a tool, powered by the Electromagnetic Entity that you are. For as a power tool the human body is excelled, but as its operator, you are beyond the reason of bodies. You are obviously a "Will to be" which is very much a combination of “Will to Force” and "Will to Form", so here is a kicker, YOU ARE THE PSYCHE- IMAGINATION and the Imagined and most of all the fulfillment of Kether's dream to be! Remember, Hu is Mandarin for God and Man is from the Hindu word for mind-Mannas, Thus human means a God Mind! The body is not described in the world human. So you are a Hu-Man, who owns a animal body; a homo sapiens and the creative imagination of the Divine Creative. Image-maker, is what the Imagination means, and that dear soul, is Creation's Power. So get off of your suffering butt and stand up and Yell-----I AM Me! And get on with creating you, for self- impeccability is what you came to do! Remember, what we command in this Universe is our own image. Take charge of yourself and stop blaming environment, or person or thing. Sure they may influence, but they only have the power you give them. What you are is up to your Passionate use of Imagination! You are a product of 3. Maid-Mother-Crone, Father-Son-Grandfather, Spirit-Mind-Body, Kether-Chokmah-Binah and/or I -Am- Me. Your are a trinity, not one little animal ego who is trying to survive.

THE 3 OF CUPS-ABUNDANCE:

Is also called the Lord of Abundance. Here Mercury is in Cancer, The Angels of the Decan Rachael and Yehomayah.

The 3 of Cups, signifies the influence of Binah in Briah, the mental World---your world of Psyche.

Cancer is a water sign, and is under the command of the Moon. Thus we have Cardinal Water, i.e. Consciousness. Hence, The 3 of Cups is perfect affinity with Binah, the Divine Creatrix- who is "Will to Form" and whose Will has come to fruition as "You". Hence, the 3 of Cups, also signifies the 3 states of Love:

  1. Eros-the love of flesh
  2. Phillo-Brotherly love or family love.
  3. Agape-Love of Spirit

All of which, have created you. For you are a manifestation of 3 states of Love-Spirit-Mind and Body.

When the Three of Cups is thrown during a reading:

  • The querent may have an out pouring of love and positive emotion toward three very significant people in their life An overwhelming desire to communicate such to them,
  • Happiness and a full life.
  • May become clearer about what the querent's feelings and emotion are saying.
  • Letting the spirit come through and expressing the joy of being with others.
  • A steady and timeless affection is being felt by the querent that is unconditional and thus more powerful and more deeply felt than romantic love.
  • Feeling the dance of love, often called the Three Graces. A very exuberant joyful feeling of being.The querent may have an out pouring of love and positive emotion toward three very significant people in their life an overwhelming desire to communicate such to them.

There really isn't a negative to this card, unless blinded by exuberance can be called a negative. But love doesn't really care if others appreciative it or not, it just is the foundation of Spiritual presence and Knowledge that is unconcerned with approval. Your Trinity, is in love with being you.
