THE PRINCE OF SWORDS
In the zodiac, the Prince of Swords rules from 21 degrees Capricorn to 20 degrees Aquarius .
This card represents Air of Air, Specific Air of Primal Air. which shows an active mind that swirls all over the place.The three fairy like beings pulling this chariot are symbols of the capricious nature of the mind which can be pulled into any direction.
The Prince of Swords has both the long sharp sword of rational that invokes and creates, while in the left hand he carries the sickle of destruction that immediately destroys what is created.
Since this is a card of the Mind, there is significant Moon (Yesod) symbolism here.
When signified as a person, this card represents a young person of a turbulent combative nature. Not only is this person's mind enthusiastic , changeable with rapid switching of logic, they are also often argumentative. A very active and imaginative mind that reduces all ideas to and ideal world of ratiocination and formality, which as such, is without relation to known facts. Usually prefers "pure mind" over emotions.
Esoterically, this is the Knower, ( one who knows and hears not derision) and shows mastery of synthesis and delusion. A kind of farsighted mental view and expansion into cosmic awareness without proper empathy.
For the Querent, this is a card of communication. The Querent has decided to be deeply committed to acting out their own philosophical ideas in a daily lifestyle. Speaking out courageously but showing a tendency to be head strong and assertive. This is where the sickle destroys the attractiveness of the created logic.
In Mythology, the Prince of Swords represents Tyr, the Norse god of battle. and also Mars, the Roman god of war. Both of these personifications , represent destruction, pestilence, daring and death.The Prince of Swords is representative of the Archetypical Tyrant- Personality who is charismatic. dominating and so impersonal that they have a great power to harm. Sharp wit but assertive to a fault. This card cautions the Querent about over -rationalization.
