MAAT Study Group-10 of Cups


Week of the last quarter moon in Pisces

"The last quarter moon phase symbolizes the power of an acute awareness of ideals and high standards and implementation of these standards into daily life. Disappointment can occur if these standards are not met".


10 of Cups


Planetary ruler Mercury

The image for the 10 of Cups is a happy couple looking up at a beautiful rainbow. All around them is their lovely home, which they have worked very hard to create.A cup-lined cobblestone path leads up to a Tudor style house with a thatched roof. In the distance a small herd of sheep cluster. The line of cups and blooming wildflowers corral domestic geese in abundance.

Building a healthy emotional life together understanding and dealing with the ups and downs of love relationships. Realizing discourse is a natural part of partnership. This couple is successful because they have learned to weather any storm. The rainbow in the sky symbolizes the ability to let the sun shine through the rain. A reflection of the rainbow in the sky is seen in the puddle on the sidewalk reminding us that the people of earth are expected to complete the circle of that rainbow.

Traditional tarot meaning: the happy family, success, a new house.

In a Reading: This card represents the successful family. Both partners have worked hard to create a happy home. They have learned live in peace with each other to trust each other. They do not keep score on each otherís behavior nor do they feel the need to teach the other a lesson for momentary bad behavior. They have learned to live with each otherís little annoying characteristics and have become each otherís sunshine through the rain.

Other Pisces Moon cards... understanding the symbol of the two fish( great bodies/opposites) tied together

new moon in Pisces/ 4 of Wands (Feb. 19-Mar.20)Remnants of last yearís garden markers protrude through the shrinking ice reminding us it is time to start planning for the growing season. Winter and summer merge in the gardenerís fertile imagination, as he plots out his summer garden. Sunny window ledges begin to fill with small soil filled containers and seeds from last year's harvest. Seeds planted at the new moon use the extra bonus of waxing energy from the moon and sun to grow. This is the last new moon of winter and there is a sense of life awakening, the air itself seems energized. This is the very best moon for starting spring garden plants indoors. Here the two great bodies are the Summer garden and the Winter garden/ the imagined and the physical reality

Full Moon in Pisces: Princess of Coins-The peri-menopausal woman-(Aug.23-Sept.21)The Princess of coins has come to represent for me the peri-menopausal and menopausal woman. She still feels young and yet she is getting all the signs that the change is coming and that she needs to adjust to her changing self. She is at the peak of her life many of her hard fought dreams are manifested all around her. She is a metaphor for the time of the year that is the full moon in Pisces. Fulfillment also means completion and then it is time to move on. The garden now full will need to be harvested its beauty cut down and stored away. It is sad to say good-bye to the summer's sweet fertility but there is joy in the activity of the harvest. Then when the work is done and there is time to rest again and remember firm in the knowledge that spring will be indeed be coming again.
She also personifies the goddess Hecate woman at the cross-roadsā'she who works her willā' orā'with the bright headband' was said to have witnessed the abduction of Persephone. She is the patron of all those who stand at the border of life and death; especially the midwives, witches and healers. She rules dark intuitive wisdom. Here the two great bodies are integrating youth and aging ,integrating the cycle of life with the self.


First quarter Moon in Pisces/9 of Swords (Nov. 23-Dec.20)Dreams become the connection with the Other World. Prophetic dreams, spirit contact and things that go bump in the night.
The creative power of the waxing moon during its transit through the darkest moon cycle of the year visits the realms the deepest subconscious. The dark month before the winter solstice is the month when we tap into the collective subconscious. Our days are filled with memories of holidays gone by...cultural traditions as well as old family traditions and the memories of loved ones who have passed away fill our minds. We prepare gatherings to celebrate life and the power and mercy of the mysteries of the universe. The power of the sun continues to wane until the winter solstice all the while the moon's light remains the same and as the nights grow longer sleeping and dreaming become paramount. Become aware of your dreams if you keep a dream diary this will help you to record your dreams. Take note of long lost relations that pop into your head as well as your dreams as you prepare for the celebrations ahead. Listen for the wisdom of familiar voices as you continue the traditions they began... they are all gathered around you... the ones you know who have passed and the ones who you will know who are coming into being ...embrace the mystery.Here the two great bodies are the world of the living/present and the world of the spirits/past/ the spirit reality and the physical reality


Full Moon Cycle of Pisces(Aug.23-Sept.21)major arcana -Temperance- "the suppression of appetite" during the time of the second harvest. Temperance a card of blending opposites, of magic and alchemy acknowledges the dark goddesses of power. This moon cycle signals the end of summer and a time when darkness and light are in balance.
The magical alchemical connection between the opposites. Reconsiling and recognizing the connection between the opposites. The legends of the dark goddesses Isis and Lilith, of Isis and Ra in which Isis tricks her father Ra into telling her his secret name. And of Lilith the first wife of Adam who calls out the secret name of YHVH and flies away after refusing to be Adam's subordinate. The Tigris and Euphrates Rivers are also found within the Temperance image to rivers that start out coming from opposite directions and then merge as one in to the Gulf sea. The Tigris and Euphrates River valley is also an ancient flood plane like the Nile as well as another cradle of early civilization. The Full moon cycle of Pisces is the last month of Summer. The month before The Autumnal Equinox.
The legend of Ra and Isis-MAAT Tarot book page 246-247


Balancing Cards:
last quarter moon in Pisces/10 of Cups- This card represents the successful family. Both partners have worked hard to create a happy home. They have learned live in peace with each other to trust each other. They do not keep score on each otherís behavior nor do they feel the need to teach the other a lesson for momentary bad behavior. They have learned to live with each otherís little annoying characteristics and have become each otherís sunshine through the rain.vs. last quarter moon in Virgo/10 of Swords-overkill, betrayal and backstabbing, sometimes in the quest to create our reality we may overstep our bounds and start to create the reality of others. This can lead to conflict if other people don't see things your way. Be sure your dreams stay your own and don't infringe on the dreams of others.

One of the bliss card. For me, it's about dreams, wishes, aspiration. The couple have achieved it and they are happy. They are autonomous. They have all they need to sustain themselves. I wonder if this card could be linked with recycling? No trash, everything have its use. They have all that they need.
