Thoth-7 of Cups-Debauch
Santa Muerte-7 of Cups
The swampy nature of the Thoth- 7 of Cups. may seem such a large step into the negative after the 6 of Cups- warm and sunny Pleasure. However, both are astrologically Scorpio, but instead of Scorpio exalted in the Sun as in the 6, the 7 of Cups places Scorpio with the planet Venus and Venus is ill dignified in the sign. Besides, Debauch is a form of intoxication, and in this case it is an emotional drunkenness. Debauch is associated with the bacanal, a celebration of the ancient god Bacchus, the god of wine, intoxication and drunkenness.
Venus is the planet of *Copper, she is all “external splendor and internal corruption", such superficiality in a martial and watery sign as Scorpio destroys any altruistic tenancies, turning the amiability of Venus into a grosser sensuality and/or a outer patina. Thus in the 7 of Cups, the influence of Venus is violent, and becomes intense physical passion which unless gratified, will become hatred. This passion is so unbalanced that even when such intense physical passion is reciprocated, it will be stormy to the extreme. It may also end in tragedies and treacheries.
Oxidation, in the case of copper, is a type of corrosion. It is a three-step process where copper oxidizes to copper oxide, then to cuprous or cupric sulfide and finally to copper carbonate. It results in a green-colored copper or patina that forms over time.https://www.corrosionpedia.com/definition/1258/oxidized-copper
Such extreme violence of feelings, may also end in poor health, since no matter the physical strength of the person, the emotional strength of greedy desires is even stronger and may eventually lead to dangerous excess. Therefore, Indolence, a type of intoxication, is an appropriate title for the 7 of Cups.
The number 7 also refers to Netzach (Victory) and is the number of the Ancient Goddess (Water), Venus who was considered the Goddess of Love, doubling the influence of the number 7. As most of us know by experience, when loving desire goes into physical overload, excessive passion becomes dangerous excess, as if drowning in a swamp, from which some never recover.
In the Human case, Passion must belong to the Higher States of Conscious rather than subconscious of the physical body which is a "survival mind" and will tend to make"mountains out of mole hills". As is explained by the very word Human; before the latin word homo, the word *Human Meant God-Mind and the High Vibrational Will of the I AM. Hu, was an Egyptian god of the Spoken Word. Hence, invariably linked with the god Thoth, who created the hieroglyphs/and/or language. Then there is the sanskrit word Hannuman, a Hindu god and a divine monkey companion of the god Rama. Thoth also had a divine monkey companion - a dog faced monkey who stood for the trickery and mischievousness of the words of man. At one time it was known that we were the "children of those who from the sky came" and/or a genetic manipulated offspring of "extraterrestrials" and/or the genetic breeding with Annunaki of the Sumerians. The Anu were "gods" and/or "the angels of the lord who mated with the women of men", as stated in the bible. The ancients depicted everyone who came from the sky, with wings. Arguably, this makes us homo sapiens sapiens, GMO's who have the DNA connection to a "Higher Mind" of our Ancient Astronaut forefathers and mothers. Contrary to the indoctrination of Patriarchy, there was knowledge and life before Rome , the beginning of the Military Industrial Empire, and Latin, and its propaganda, that has used indoctrination as a constant "dumbing down" of mankind. When one takes the time to investigate this alien parentage, we find that every ancient, recorded civilization believed we were created by "gods" who came from the sky and depicted this in there art. From Africa, India, Mesopotamia, Asia, Pre columbian America and even the aborigines of Australia, all shared this belief and left their art behind to prove it. All this helps prove, that you are more than you think you are.
Therefore, before the Latin terms of the Patriarchy, and it's monkey like trickery with words, that we call propaganda, it was known that homo sapiens were indeed the "image of god" and/or the image of "those who from the sky came"-giving us connection to the Universal Collective Unconscious, which is the One Mind, that has became the Divine Creative (I Am), whose Will burns away the lowly desires of the animal body. Most often, this momentary expansion of mundane emotions to that of the Soul/Psyche (son of the god (s)), stretches the boundaries of Self-Consciousness beyond the animal body; a stretching that is usually temporary unless the flesh is trained in the tempering heat of Tantric, or Gnostic rituals. The Passion that Created a Universe of Self, is too much intensity for the self-absorbed brain, whose universe is all about "my feelings"!
The Egyptian god Hu was one of the minor gods in some respects, but he was one of the most important gods for those serious about Egyptian deities. Hu is the power of the spoken word. He personifies the authority of utterance. Hu is mentioned already in the Old Kingdom Pyramid texts (PT 251, PT 697) as companion of the deceased pharaoh.Hu (mythology) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jul 15, 2020 · Hu = God. Man = Mind. But that’s no fun so let’s try something different shall we. Human is possibly derived from Proto-Indo-European or the Sanskrit word Hanuman (/ˈhʌnʊˌmɑːn/; Sanskrit: हनुमान्, IAST: Hanumān) is a Hindu god and divine monkey (vanara) companion of the god Rama, hence, you guessed, Rome as in Rome Italy. [The just like the Egyptian god Thoth]
To carry forththis idea of emotional excess, the Thoth Deck 7 of Cups displays poisoned lotuses that have become tiger lilies. The cups are iridescent, (dissolving in the indolence), and are arranged into 2 descending triangles, interlaced with the larger lower cup-showing a greater lower influence on the emotions, as it floats in a slime covered morass of putrefaction.
The Thoth- 7 of Cups image is almost an "evil reverse" image of the 6 of Cups in the reflective world of matter; Zealotry, fanaticism are such evil reverses.
The 7 of Cups, is a wholesome reminder of the fatal ease with which a Sacrament, such as the "Flesh", and emotion may be profaned and prostituted simply by losing one’s balance with the Soul (Higher Mind), and straying ever so slightly from the middle pillar balance of Masculine and Feminine, thereby making the holiest mysteries of Nature become the obscene and shameful secrets of a guilt ridden self-consciousness. Netzach, is that green Sephiroth on the lower illustrated Tree of Life.
Green is the color attributed to Venus, the planet of Netzach. Love, feelings and instinct, the Group Mind, Nature, and the Arts, all radiate from this Sephiroth.
The Symbols for Netzach are The Girdle;
The Rose and the Lamp:
Netzach is the first Sephiroth of the astral triangle and is the first energy intelligence to make up the personality of the individual.You may remember that I stated that the Personality is made up of the Four Alchemical Elements, each of which are represented by the lower Sephira, in the familiar sequence of Fire, Water, Air and Earth. Netzach is Fire, Hod is Water, Yesod is Air and Malkuth is Earth.
Netzach is the lower form of the fiery Yod of Chokmah that is reflected from Geburah through Tiphareth. This is the formula for Yod Heh Vau Heh, Malkuth being the final Heh, because of the "fall" which is really a condensing or "downsizing" of self.
In the sphere of Netzach, normal waking consciousness of the student, must deal with the Astral Triangle and the component parts of the Personality, after all, we are not of the Personality, it is of Our Spiritual to create avatars! Personalities are software programs that are created to operate Hardware or Wetware, and are supplanted in the brain to manipulate the physical body in the name of the Soul. However, if your personality was made for you out of the illusions, delusions, and ambitions of another "Authority" rather than your "inner-self"/soul, then you haven't a clue who is operating the body; You also don't know the code and language that went into making the software/ego your body is operating from! Yet again the axiom of Qaballah: "Above all things, know thyself!" rings true! It is time to remember that you are not an ego, nor made by one. You have been deceived into believing you are an ego, by the use of "pleasure-pain" training which is another way of saying, "brainwashing".
The most important part of initiation is to observe the layers of lies and propagandised illusions, that your personality is constructed from, removing layer after layer of false you, until the real you is shining true. This "Garbage in" is called man-made ego and the "Garbage out" is the dysfunctional action of "seeking yourself" in the eyes of your peers, or of an outside authority. You are already divinely approved----you exist, and your Software for operating the Hardware, was already created by the Higher Self, you may call this "the Soul".
Often, Mystery schools use a set of Tattva exercises as a type of "controlled daydream" (guided meditations), intended to bring the student into direct contact with the subtle Elemental realms immediately underlying the material sphere of sensation. Often, I bring those Elemental realms into sensual manifestation for my students, all of which is necessary to prepare the student for more advance techniques of skrying with Tarot Cards.
It should be understood, that the astral realm beginning with Netzach, is a fluidic, non-solid realm of energy-in-motion, where everything begins in illusion/dream. It is the place, where our Formative consciousness can experiment with image, such as children role-playing, in order to comprehend in a later stage of growth, the actual manifestation of being "that". If done with controlled will, this is a boon to any creative endeavor on Earth; if taken as rote, all hell will break loose on earth!
The Astral is not a Master of your personality! Nor is anything that you contact in it! The Astral is Your Malleable substance to create with, not be created by! Most " Medium-Channels" that just channel astral persona's, live in an illusion of devotional thought, not allowing them to see "holy' delusions.
Let me explain what few wish you to know: A god is a dominant Consciousness on its Plane of Dominion. Every one of the Ten Sephiroth, is a god.......you are composed of the United cooperation of these energy intelligences we call "gods", which contribute to the make up the One MInd. The Eheieh-Hebrew for "I Will Be" began the process of image,And you're are the fulfillment of that Will, because you are the manifested will of "I AM Being", ruler of its domain, the Human body! So, you, are a Great Group of Ten states of Mind, who should be working as One Group Soul of your individual Tree of Life...A One God/Mind----------------that fact that you are not, is because you've been mentally separated from the reality of your divinity! This was done by the manipulation of your imagination, (auto-suggestion) by "The few who wish to rule the many", using academia, theology, media, and fear based ideology! The Astral domains are the beginning of formation, on earth. and by giving you "nightmare" stories of how bad your natural body is ..........you have become "divided and conquered".
When we are dealing with Netzach, we are dealing with understanding a particularly difficult state of energy conscious. Netzach is where both the Macrocosm and Microcosm meet. Thus we are dealing with the understanding of the entire race patterns of human kind, and patterns of individual persona. But if that isn't enough, we must understand that this dichotomy is in itself an illusion! Its enough to intoxicate a brain!
When all is said and done. One is in emotional debauch, when one is drunk on emotional self-importance. We are the masters of energy-in-motion, not products of it. Therefore, worshipping emotional feelings as "truth", is being drunk on delusions. Our "feelings" are subject to interpretation of the emoter, not in anyway a universal truth. So don't believe everything you think or feel, it is time to "Above all things, know thyself". Feelings are merely the ego manipulating the nervous system for it is the subconscious , who is shallow and easily manipulated by media, belief systems , propaganda and hypnosis. It is time to analyse your emotional-self concepts and reveal the component parts that "make you feel" a certain way. It is time to observe how the idea of you has become profaned by "those who rule definition".
Advice of the Dead: Preserve in your projects and in your desires having first thought them through and keeping your feet on the ground.
-From the Santa Muerte Book of the Dead by Fabio Listrani
The Santa Muerte-7 of Cups, depicts one examining one of the +++7 cups that they have shelved. Emotions that are shelved, should be examined carefully, so that we can expose their corruption that happens over time. One should remember that the subconscious, is the conscious of early childhood, and most of our "deepest feelings" were created during that time, making most of us emotional children in grown up bodies.
Being a 7, which is a mental/spiritual number, and therefore, can be a tarot card depicting hope, energy and new creative artistic projects. However, in circumstances of indoctrination and dogma, can this energy be significantly corrupted, bring instead sterile fantasies without and outlet, errors of judgment, or ingenuity. As Aristotle is quote as saying,“Give me a child until he is 7 and I will show you the man.” This is the power of indoctrination, for we make up what is a "man" or "woman" according to our training. Education makes a craftsman, indoctrination makes a slave. This is well known by psychologists, but somehow is not seen by the common man. just read the excerpt below from the website of psychology today.
Some claim the maxim comes from St. Ignatius Loyola himself. Yet the idea later proclaimed by the Jesuits is very old – give us a child till he’s seven and we’ll have him for life.
Many years ago a young son of my ancestors was kidnapped during a Russian pogrom. His father and brother spent years searching - everywhere.
They eventually found him – living as a teenage seminarian in Constantinople. He knew nothing of his family. He had no wish to know. He just wanted to become a Russian Orthodox priest.
It’s not only religious organizations that know the power of early training and indoctrination. So do food companies.

- There is a suggestion of deceit, promises unfulfilled, illusion, and error.
- Slight success may be experienced, a minor victory so to speak, but not enough energy to retain it.

If ill defined by the surrounding cards:
- This card bespeaks of selfish dissipation.
- Deception in love and friendship.
- Let it be said, this is a card of passions run afoul because of too much fantasy and denial.
