Mary El Tarot - Nine of Cups

The Ape of Thoth (Thoth's Magus) and the HP’s pillars (RWS HP) are present in this card. The floor is black and white like a chessboard indicating the dual nature of choice, the sun and the moon and that nothing is as it seems. The baboon form of Thoth:

The Nine pointed star appears in the top of the card, the enneagram that represents the nine gifts of spirit:

The water of cups is in the clouds and waves of the background. For now, the storm of emotions is at bay.

According to Wang (Qabalistic Tarot) the nines (symbols of Yesod) are sandals and perfume. The ankh is the sandal strap – Life. Is the Scorpion (Scorpio?) it’s balance – Death?

Another symbol in the background is the staircase leading up to the star. For some reason it brings to mind Jacob’s ladder – the path to heaven, peace and compassion. And that happiness is right here, where you are.
