Seven of Cups Interpretations

Debauch means corruption, especially when it comes to morals. With Crowley’s Seven of Cups I see a lot more geared towards good things spoiled and poison, than I had seen with the medieval Tarot. The card visually is quite unappetizing. When this card arrives it suggests deception and illusion. False success: What are you denying? What is it that cannot be accepted? What do you think is there that really isn’t?

Additional Interpretations

“Lying, promises unfulfilled; illusion, deception, error; slight success at outset, not retained. Possible victory, but neutralized by the supineness of the person; illusionary success, deception in the moment of apparent victory. Lying, error, promises unfulfilled. Drunkenness, wrath vanity. Lust, fornication, violence against women, selfish dissipation, deception in love and friendship. Often success gained, but not followed up. Modified as usual by dignity.” 6

“Debauch. Delusion. Illusory success. Drug addiction. Intoxication. Gult. Lying. Deceit. Promises unfulfilled. Lust. Fornication. Dissipation in love and friendship. Vanity.” 5

“Debauch. Netzach in the suit of Water. Venus in Scorpio. The Lotuses have become poisonous; green slime issues from them. They are arranged in two descending triangles, with a lower cup much anger than the rest. This shows external splendour and internal corruption.” 5

“Debauch. Venus in Scorpio. Netzach. Here the effort to increase pleasure has ended in corruption. The lotuses have become poisonous and the cups are chipped.” 5

Axank’s Dream Recall

October 20-21, 2013
It was somewhat futuristic. There was a group of pregnant women undergoing a surgical procedure by a certain doctor. One young man’s mother was skeptical of this doctor and asked her son to go undercover and see if he could get any information on the doctor’s special remedy procedure. He learned that the doctor’s procedure was bogus and did nothing for the women. The doctor was deceptive—the women thought they were getting treated, when in fact they weren’t.
