THE TEN OF CUPS, LORD OF PERFECTED SUCCESS

Mars in Pisces, Four Elements in Malkuth

   A family experiences perfected success in the material realm. While their children dance, the man and the woman gaze up in wonder and gratitude at ten cups in a rainbow of three colors--light red (almost pink), light blue, and intense yellow. Their modest home near a stream is surrounded by trees and grass, not emblems of wealth and power. To some it might seem strange that this happy family is experiencing the influence of Mars in Pisces and the four elements. Mars, after all, inspires awe, even terror, and evokes struggle and conflict. The rainbow and the peaceful scene are the keys to understanding the quality of Mars at this level of the Kingdom, Malkuth. The natural scene and the colors of the rainbow suggest the four elements, red symbolizing Fire, blue symbolizing Water, and yellow symbolizing Air, the scene itself representing Earth. The rainbow shows the life-force manifesting down through the planes without interference into the material plane. Mars burns away negativity and psychic blocks, allowing the unobstructed power of the life-force to manifest on all levels, bringing with it happiness and well-being. The cleansing power of the life-force reaches even into the depths of the subconscious mind. No hidden pathologies distort the happiness of your allies. They live joyfully and abundantly in a stable home environment.
