The key word for the inner astrological meaning of the Seven of Cups is VERITY, which is an old fashioned word for Truth or Honesty. The Pisces decanate of Pisces is pictured in the heavens as Cepheus, a king whose foot rests upon the immovable Pole Star of Truth. He holds a scepter cut from the Tree of Life. Seven globes surmount his crown, symbolizing the seven visible planets and the Septenary Law in nature. The influence of this decanate is to seek truth, not so much through the empirical trials of science, but through the psychic senses and a grasp of the estoteric interpretations of all phenomena.
To understand the spiritual message of the Pisces decanate of Pisces, it is important to remember that the elementals and earth-bound discarnate human souls who dwell close to the vibratory level of the earth on the astral plane, are best able to contact this plane through conditions represented by the negative and mediumistic characteristics of Pisces. Pisces, however, is a dual sign and the conditions as represented by the finer characteristics of Pisces are receptive to nobler souls who research, teach, and aid humanity and pass their knowledge to neophytes here on earth. We cannot know the whole truth if we ignore the physical world, nor can we know the whole truth if we ignore the astral world. The vibratory rates of all things in nature have astrological correspondences, and these correspondences are the keys to knowledge. The spiritual text for the Seven of Cups, therefore, is the hermetic axiom: As it is above, so it is below, and that which is below is like unto that which is above. __C.C. Zain
