10 of Cups


Pluto often has to do lessons related to power, death and renewal of life and when Pluto is here, these lessons are idealized. In the early 1800’s Napoleon followed his dream of building a new Roman Empire. In a sense this was a time of reliving the glory days of the past. Historians have since referred to this as the romantic period.
It is interesting that Pluto was in the 5th place from its own sign while in Pisces and that the 5th has to do with romance, but because this is a transpersonal planet, the “romance” was made impersonal. Individuals with Pluto in close aspect or conjunction to inner planets here will be very charismatic and powerful in their expression. Because Pluto’s sect nature is indeterminate, I will not speculate upon differences based on this. (Source: zodiac-x-files.com)

12th House, House of Self-Undoing (Prison). Mysticism and mystery. Places of seclusion such as hospitals, prisons and institutions, including self-imposed imprisonments. Elusive, clandestine, secretive or unbeknownst matters. Privacy, retreat, reflection, and self-sacrifice. Unconscious/subconscious. Unknown enemies.

You have a deep interest in secrets, the underworld or unconscious, and anything hidden and mysterious. Psychoanalysis, investigating your dreams, and other methods of uncovering secrets are very interesting to you. You may be exceptionally perceptive intuitively or psychically. Your emotions and subconscious energies are complex, and periodic transformations and personal crises are sprinkled liberally throughout your lifetime. (Source: cafeastrology.com)

The number 5 – Pluto, Active/Emotional (Water)
Positive traits:
– Regeneration, spiritual, passionate, resourceful, expansiveness, new and visionary ideas, observant, versatile and ever-changing, catalyst for changes, dynamic, curious and exploring, promoting, resourceful in using freedom constructively.
Negative traits:
– Restless, discontent, vague, jealous, obsessive, suspicious, dissatisfaction, keeping secrets, lacking in application, manipulative, unyielding, arguments enjoined with silence or sarcasm.

Crowley: Satiety. This card represents a conflicting element. On the one hand, it receives the influence of the Ten, Malkah the Virgin. The arrange ment of the cups is that of the Tree of Life. But, on the other hand, they are themselves unstable. They are tilted; they spill the water from the great Lotus which overhangs the whole system from one into the other.
The work proper to water is complete: and disturbance is due.
This comes from the influence of Mars in Pisces. Mars is the gross, violent and disruptive force which inevitably attacks every supposed perfection. His energy displays the greatest possible con trast with that of Pisces, which is both peaceful and spiritualized.

Waite: Appearance of Cups in a rainbow; it is contemplated in wonder and ecstacy by a man and woman below, evidently husband and wife. His right arm is about her; his left is raised upward; she raises her right arm. The two children dancing near them have not observed the prodigy but are happy after their own manner. There is a home-scene beyond.
Contentment, repose of the entire heart; the perfection of that state; also perfection of human love and friendship; if with several picture-cards, a person who is taking charge of the Querent’s interests; also the town, village or country inhabited by the Querent.
Reversed: Repose of the false heart, indignation, violence.

Fortune Telling with Playing Cards:
