47-Prince of Cups – Reversed Thoth Deck

Your Chosen Card – Prince of Cups Reversed Thoth Deck

When reversed, the seductive Knight of Cups casts his spell so convincingly that you don’t realize you are walking about in an illusion. You may think he really cares about you, but in reality he is using his charm for his own ends regardless of how it affects you in the long run. The reversed Knight of Cups is the archetypal Don Juan of classical literature. He will mislead or seduce you into providing him with momentary pleasure. Don’t expect a committed relationship. Forewarned is forearmed.

Keywords Reversed: Escapism, illusion, deception, passivity, hedonism, impracticality, fraud, trickery, artifice, seduction, superficiality, boredom, dishonesty, unreliability, breach of confidentiality, mind-expanding drugs; a con artist, a Don Juan; ‘wham, bam, thank you, ma’am.’

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.

Complete Book of Tarot: If we invert the Tower card, we get a different view of the situation. Now the rocky terrain is located above the two individuals, and the thunderbolt emerges from the left-hand corner of the card beneath their feet. They do not see the dangerous lightning because they are ‘looking up’ at the rocks at the top of the reversed card. They are not cognizant of the divine displeasure represented by the thunderbolt beneath them. Thus, they have ignored an important spiritual message and have failed to learn from their difficult circumstances.
