46-Princess of Cups – Reversed Thoth Deck

Your Chosen Card – Princess of Cups Reversed Thoth Deck

When reversed, the Page of Cups tends to spend his time in unproductive fantasy, as if living in a dream. Squandering his talents, he may come across as immature, lazy, or idle. He tends to be overly dependent on others to take care of him, and he can’t be relied upon to honor his commitments. Sometimes this reversed Page highlights a fear of your own dependency needs and a reluctance to assume adult responsibilities involving care for others. Escapist tendencies, perhaps through drugs or alcohol, can become a problem. It’s easy, however, to be seduced by this Page’s charm.

Keywords Reversed: Unrealistic, immature, needy, childish, living in a fantasy world, spoiled, unhappy, lazy, idle, escapist, clingy, overly dependent, fearful of dependency, deceptive, seductive, tricky, cunning, avoidant of adult responsibilities, putting your own needs ahead of the needs of others.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: The decanate system divides the 360-degree circle of zodiac signs into thirty-six equal parts of 10 degrees each. Each sign consists of three decans. There are twelve signs, so there are 12 x 3 = 36 decans. For thousands of years, astrologers have assigned the visible planets to these decans. Thus, each tarot card numbered from two through ten is associated with a decan as well as with the planet ruling the decan. In his book Mystical Origins of the Tarot, author Paul Huson shows how the decans’ esoteric meanings influenced the Golden Dawn’s interpretations of the cards.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: Card 9, hopes and fears, was the Page of Cups. Pages represent children, so the Page of Cups could represent his own wish for children as well as his fear of dependency.

Complete Book of Tarot: Scimitars, which became the incisive Swords of tarot. Scimitars are short swords with curved blades that broaden toward the point. They are most devastating when used to slash an enemy from atop a moving horse.

Complete Book of Tarot: Given this mythology, we can construct a meaning for the upright version of this card. The occupants of the Tower have built their edifice without regard to spiritual principles or divine law. As a result, the deity (Zeus in the case of ancient Greece) has decided to teach them a lesson by destroying their tower, thus forcing them to reevaluate their spiritual lives and start anew.
