The Druid Craft Tarot, shows three Celtic Males celebrating and eating in comradery and feasting. They are toasting their three cups, presumably not filled with water, in a show of union. This card bespeaks of abundance, which continues the relationship of The Thoth Tarot and The Druid Craft Tarot.
The Thoth 3 of Cups, 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.
Cancer is a watersign, and is under the command of the Moon. Thus we have Cardinal Water, i.e. Consciousness. Hence, The Three of Cups is perfect affinity with Binah, who is "Will to Form".
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, the 4th Sephiroth/ The Architect, 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 Psyche, 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". We are the Fool-0- who has twisted upon itself, as a 8, to "look upon itself", and in so doing has created 2 sexes out of One Divine Creative Identity. Therefore, 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”-male electric and "Will to Form", feminine magnetic, so here is a kicker, YOU ARE THE IMAGINATION and the Imagined or as the Qabalah states; you are both the Transmitter and the Transmitted. This doesn't seem far fetched if you remember, Hu is Mandarin for God and Man is from the Hindu word for mind-Mannas. Hence, you are called a God Mind! The body is not described in the world human. So you are a Hu-Man, Psyche, who owns a animal body and/or soma.
Image-maker, is what the Imagination means, and that dear soul, is the Divine Creative's Power. So get off of your suffering butt and stand up and Yell-----I AM Me! And get on with 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 how you employ the Passionate use of Abundant Imagination!
As mentioned: The pomegranate is the sacred fruit assigned to Persephone, the Goddess of Spring, suggesting the abundance of that season, as well as, the Abundance of form supplied by Maid-Mother and Crone, the Trinity of Womb. Hence, a time of celebration and friendship is suggested here.
When the Three of Cups is thrown during a reading:
There really isn't a negative to this card, unless blinded by exuberance can be called a negative.
However, if you have drank too much "pomegranate wine" and are now in the merciless grasp of a hangover, you may feel negative.
