Above all things, know thyself!
Thoth- 6 of Cups-Pleasure
#6. In all things, Great and Small, I see the Beauty of the divine expression.
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot-6 of cups.
[From the Sepher Yetzirah and the Thirty-Two Paths of Wisdom:]
In Kether is the Radix of a Golden Glory and thence is there a pure, primitive, and sparkling, gleaming golden yellow which is reflected into Tiphareth. This is the first reflected Triad complete. And the sphere of its operation is that of Shemesh, the Solar Light, and bestoweth Life, Light and Brilliancy in metallic matter, and it rideth the sphere of action and of the Sun. And YHVH
Eloah va-Daath is a God of Knowledge and Wisdom, ruling over the Light of the Universe; and its Archangel is Raphael, the Prince of Brightness, Beauty, and Life. And the Name of the Order of Angels is Melechim that is Kings or Angelic Kings, who are also called the Order of Virtues, Angels, and Rulers.
The above flowery paragraph describes the 6th Sephirotic Solar Intelligence the Sun/Son of the Divine Creative, and it is the Soul, which is your True Identity of -"I AM the Light".
Crowley said it best in his Book of Thoth, pg., 199:
"Pleasure", in the title of this card, must be understood in its highest sense: it implies well-being, harmony of natural forces without effort or strain, ease, satisfaction. Foreign to the idea of the card is the gratification of natural or artificial desires. Yet it does represent emphatically the fulfillment of the sexual Will, as shown by the ruling Sephira, planet, element, and sign. "
The Thoth-6 of Cups is also called The Lord of Pleasure. Here the Sun is in Scorpio the Angels of the Decan are Nelokhiel and Yeyayel. The 6 of Cups is the influence of the Sun in the 6th Sephiroth-Tiphareth (Beauty), in the Mental World known to Qabalist as Briah. It is known that Tiphareth in Atziluth , the world of Fire means Victory after effort, shown as the 6 of Wands. Therefore, we see the 6 of Cups as Tiphareth (Sun) in the Watery World, (Mental World of Briah) as the Beginnings of Pleasure. Tiphareth is the sphere of the Sun, making the Sun happy to be home; then you add Scorpio whose fun-loving side erotically basks in the bright warmth of the Solar-Sexual joy, and you get ecstasy and/or a Spiral Energy Rapture.
Noted to be a sign of discernment, sexual-magnetism and hidden qualities, Scorpio, in the 6 of Cups, is like activated Water by Solar influx. Here, Scorpio revels in the Sun, and is likened to a Fertile, warm, fruitful Sea--a Spa of Life generating qualities. Now I have some personal experience in this card, being a Sun in Scorpio, and a Scorpio Natal, and having a Moon in Cancer, my inner self is a bright pleasure to my Watery World of emotions. This was not always so, for there are great depths to this double Scorpio and Cancer Moon Ocean of Emotion. However, with 50 + yrs. of metaphysics, Qabalistic Tarot, Tantra and mediation, Bacchus was released to revel in my halls of hearth and heart as I live this card in a daily Heated Glow of Bright Pleasure...thus I have no need to seek it-----I Am Pleasure! Pleasure is a state of daily being me. As with all power, powerful emotions, require a balanced heart (Spirit), mind and body union. The reward for such hard won harmony is that the body becomes a melody of pleasure and vibrates to the tune of the Philosopher's Stone.
The placement of the Sun in the House of Scorpio in an astrological chart can have a significant impact on a person's personality and life. Since you have an interest in metaphysics and astrology, I'll provide some insights into this particular aspect of astrology.
Intense and Passionate: Scorpio is known for its intensity, and when the Sun is in this sign, individuals tend to be passionate about their goals and pursuits. They have a deep well of energy and determination.
Emotional Depth: Scorpio is a water sign, and when the Sun is in Scorpio's house, it enhances emotional depth. These individuals are often in touch with their emotions on a profound level, and they may be drawn to exploring the mysteries of the human psyche.
Determination: Scorpio is a fixed sign, which means that those with the Sun in Scorpio's house are known for their unwavering determination. Once they set their sights on a goal, they are likely to pursue it with incredible persistence.
Magnetic and Mysterious: Scorpio is associated with mystery and secrecy. People with the Sun in Scorpio's house often have a magnetic and enigmatic quality that draws others to them. They may have a natural talent for uncovering hidden truths.
Transformation: Scorpio is also associated with transformation and rebirth. Individuals with this placement may go through significant life changes and experiences that lead to personal growth and transformation.
Desire for Depth: Those with the Sun in Scorpio's house are typically not satisfied with surface-level interactions. They crave depth and authenticity in their relationships and may be drawn to exploring esoteric or occult subjects.

It's important to remember that the interpretation of an astrological chart is highly individualized and depends on the entire birth chart, including the positions of other planets and aspects between them. Consulting with a professional astrologer can provide you with a more detailed and personalized analysis of your Sun in Scorpio's house placement.
A body in Ethereal Pleasure.
the Union harmonic of Pleasure.
As previously stated, Pleasure, being the natural title of this card, is not that of the mundane pleasures of the pain fleeing and instant gratification pill-popping populace, but of the highest sense as the "adorable fire" that was described by Dr. Paul Foster Case, implying well-being, harmony of natural forces without effort or strain but with ease and satisfaction. Also, it does emphatically represent the fulfillment of Sexual Will, as shown by the ruling Sephiroth, Tiphareth, sign of Scorpio, Planet Sun, and element of Water; a communion of fertile forces, which makes all life possible. The person who experiences this card sensually, knows this as the sexual ecstasy of the Solar Logos that blazes as a Sun in the "Sexual Chakra" or Swadhisthana chakra (The Orange Chakra); the orgasmic ecstasy that never stops as the inner 2 have become 1. This is the state of the Highest of Sexual possibility, as in the union of Zeus Christos and the Mari, or of the Simon and the Helena, Radha, and Krishna, of the Shakti and Shiva, Hermes and Aphrodite, or Anima and Animus...where one knows Goddess united with God is Sex. Sex is VI in Latin and sexen in Egyptian, denoting copulation, therefore the implications of sexual activity as vital life forces are strong here as dimensions of unbound Spirituality rather than mundane practices. Single poles don't represent power. It is the union of polarity, of opposites, which makes Power, and in this case Life Force. The perfect Pleasure of the synchronicity of communion, where the Divine-Creatrix and Creator blend as one Shining Star of Intelligent Vital Life Force in the honeymoon suite of the human body. One who is interested in manifesting as the Solar Self, should begin studying Tantric Kundalini Yoga practices.
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot-6 of cups.
The Dang Olsen Dream Tarot-8 of Cups illustrates pleasure in a psychedelic but convincing way. Here one is sleeping on a bed in the middle of flowering daisies, and the nectar of these flowers is being squeezed into a handheld cup by the intertwining of 2 floating and happy flowers. The other 5 cups are already filled with this joyous fluid, and all is a scene of joyful pleasure. What has applied to the Thoth 6 of cups is well applied here.
When the 6 of Cups is thrown during a reading it implies.
- The querent is experiencing emotional pleasure, in a period of 6 weeks or 6monts of giving to and receiving pleasure from others.
- A period of innocence and taking immense pleasure in one's childlike qualities.
- They may be experiencing an orgasmic rush of feelings, a wave of ecstasy that even sad feelings being actively expressed, feel good in release.
- The querent may also be experiencing sweet memories of the past, as past efforts bring present rewards.
- The querent's sexual sun is fully shining, producing a summer crop of pleasure throughout the body.
- Karmic rootedness.
- Sexual and emotional strength.
- Love and being loved.
- Balance and peace.
If ill defined by the surrounding cards in the layout, it implies.
- Emotional imprisonment.
- Flight from reality.
- Not recognizing happiness.
- Unbalanced or excessive behavior.
