Knight of Wands and Seven of Cups Combination
In Tarot, it is highly important to read card combinations. One Card influences another. In this case, the Knight of Wands pours down into the Seven of Cups. When doing so, the Knight of Wands influences the Seven of Cups. Knowing this permits the Tarot Reader to Read the person’s true character. This goes to Discerning the spirit of the person.
Discerning the spirit
Discerning the spirit behind the Seven of Cups is highly important. The spirit is spiritual person. When you get this particular Card, their morals and principles can easily become undone because of their spirit. Their sense of balance is innately unpredictable.
We know that the Knight of Wands is an ‘unpredictable, lightning fast courtly energy’. We also know that the Seven of Cups experiences emotions that can very well place him into a ‘life of debauch’. A result of being combined, this could most likely represent someone who can go unpredictably fast on Tilt.
This picture of the Knight of Wands and Seven of Cups Combination is one I took with my camera. I purposely placed the Knight of Wands Card right above the Seven of Cups Card. I did this, so to better visually represent this card combination.
I want to demonstrate the trickle-down effect of both the qualities and the shortcomings of the Knight of Wands Card that pour down into the Seven of cups Card. That the green slime pouring out of the cups in the Seven of Cups Card is a direct result of the mixing together of these two cards. Another way of this trickle-down effect, is to say that the Knight of Wands ‘dominates’ the emotions of the Seven of cups; who feels compelled to be in reaction to the influence of the Knight of Wands.
Who dominates whom and why
Who dominates whom and why in Tarot, is important to know. It permits the Reader to make the final determination about how to interpret any card combination. It is known that in the Thoth Doctrine of Tarot, the Knight of Wands dominates the Seven of Cups.
As a rule of thumb, Court Cards have influence over the Pip Cards. They are Courtly personages who expect servitude and obedience from the Common Class at Court.
The Knight of Wands is the Fiery part of Fire. The original title of the Knight of Wands is the Lord of the Flame and Lightning; the King of the Spirits of Fire; the King of the Salamanders.
Whereas the Seven of Cups is, by default of is birth, in service to the Knight of Wands. It has no royal title. It exercises no influence at Court. To perpetuity, it remains unsatisfied in its desires; it lives to obey the whims and desires of its Knight of Wands. It is precisely because of its genetic baggage and birth rank, that the Seven of Cups has inherent qualities and shortcomings; however, the Sev. It may nevertheless, choose how to react or not to the Knight of Wands.
Qualities and Shortcomings
Qualities and shortcomings are not just something we decide to have. They are part of our genetic baggage that we are born with and lug around our lives through. However, we can choose to develop our qualities and shortcomings or not. We can choose to make them clear or not for other people to see those in us. Whether they are visible or not, our qualities and shortcomings impact our destiny!
I truly believe that we can say or do something to change our destiny. Moreover, I am not just saying that because it is something we are taught to say as Tarot Readers. This is a personal philosophy of mine. I have lived by this since early childhood. I have worked hard on myself, my life through, to be a better person that my parents and their parents were. I still have allot to work on; I guess you can call me an imperfect perfectionist lol… If you are like me, you have done the same.
They say that the sins of the father fall upon the children, this down to the fourth generations. This means that a man and women together will pass down, not only both of their physical attributes, but also their qualities and shortcomings to their children and all the way down to the fourth generation. If you, who is reading this blog right now, could live long enough, you would observe in their great-grandchildren – the predominance of the qualities and shortcomings of the original couple.
They say, that we do not choose our biological parents. This being true or not, is neither here nor there in this particular article. One thing is for sure biologically, from our biological parents come the good and the bad they did pass down to us. Like them, we manifest out into the world at large – our positive energy as well as our negative. This determines how other people will react to us…
This much said; let us go back to our onions. Our onions being, this brief study of the Knight of Wands and Seven of Cups Combination in the Thoth Tarot System. These two energies combined, result into an awesome emotional Tilt possibility in the Seven of Cups.
Knight of Wands is predominantly a strong-willed person. He is known as a generous person, he his impulsively so; but that does not last long. You cannot predict what he will want to do next. Nor do you ever know on what foot to dance on when around him.
A Knight of Wands can be brutally cruel. One just cannot foresee at what moment his generosity will fall short, setting us up for a fall. The worst part is that this person has boxed himself in with no way out. He needs to learn a newer, more adaptive way to manifest his will in his environment. In other words, he has “the potential to grow stronger” in either direction.
Debauch, which is the Seven of Cups, is also known as the Lord of Illusionary Success. From the Knight of Wands, he has inherited the need to look successful and for his own reasons. However, just when you would think he has finally found happiness – he sabotages it. Click on Debauch, to read further about the Thoth Card Seven of Cups.
He does not nourish the Love others have for him – because of his selfishness. Once he returns to his dignity however, there is hope for improving his behaviors. Since the Seven of Cups is a Pip Card that is in reaction to its Knight of Wands, his personal dignity will assuredly return; however, that will happen only once it’s Knight figures out how to get out of his own box.
Out of the box
Out of the box is the right way to go. When one has boxed himself in a box, one would do well to find the way out of the box.
Out of the box means looking at things from different angles, not just one way. We learned from our parents an old way of thinking and an old way of doing things. Those are called old family attitudes.
Thinking out of the box means to think in new ways, in more modern ways of thinking. We do not absolutely need to model ourselves after our parents; at least not in every way! We can keep their good qualities, and throw out their shortcomings from our way of thinking and doing things.
In other words, as adults, we can now choose to ‘let go of what no longer works for us’. We can choose to keep what does work for us. We can also learn to improve upon our old ways of doing things by replacing them by more efficient ways that will – for real – make us happy.
