3/27/15 The Sun reversed and the Three of Cups

Back to the Thoth Tarot today.  I threw The Sun reversed and the Three of Cups. 

The Sun corresponds with Fire (hot/separates and dry/shapes, spontaneous, impulsive and energetic change), our Sun (the inner core of a person or situation), Resh (the face; reason), and the Path between Yesod (the place where patterns and images emerge that may manifest in the physical world) and Hod (provides analysis and communication), and it tells of a time of enlightenment and peace that comes after the completion of some ordeal.

The Thoth Sun card is brilliantly lit, and includes a pair of dancing figures and the signs of the solar zodiac.  Crowley sees this one as representing truth, glory, pleasure, gain and riches, as well as shamelessness and vanity. The Sun is about manifestations of all kinds, as well as recovery from sickness.  The reversed Sun is not a bad card; we modern humans understand that our sun does not blink out at night, nor does it die as the Fall comes to an end.

The Three of Cups (Mercury, reason, intelligence, orderliness, communication, in Cancer, “I feel,” sensitive, tenacious, nurturing, moody) is about connections, emotional abundance, and about blessings.  This card shows what could be born from the potential to experience potent emotions and feelings of the Ace, and the caring, attraction and chemistry of the Two.

To Crowley, the Three of Cups represents abundance of all kinds.  It is a card that reminds us that love is fruitful, and dreams do come true.  The Thoth Three of Cups is also about hospitality, eating and drinking, and even new clothes.

Today will be a good day, filled with abundance and pleasure.  The clouds may be covering the sky (it is a cold, rainy day, so The Sun is literally reversed), but the Spring flowers are just poking their heads up from the cold, wet ground.  Even with The Sun in a reversed position, its golden light enriches us all.
