Thoth Deck Tarot: THE QUEEN OF SWORDS

In the Thoth Deck Tarot, the Queen of Swords shows a remarkable resemblance to Kali-Ma, the fierce sword wielding, skull bedecked, Goddess of Life and Death of Hindu origins.
Qabbalistically, the Queen of Swords represents the  Watery part of Air. Air being the representing element of Mind and Water that also represents the element of "emotion". The Queen of Swords is attributed with the elasticity of this combination and the power of transmission that this Watery Air provides.
She rules the zodiac from the 21st degree of Virgo to the 20th degree of Libra. In the Thoth Deck Tarot, she is enthroned upon clouds (Watery-Air), topless and wearing a gleaming belt and sarong, symbolizing the Great Mother of Consciousness. Upon her helmet is the child head crest from which the sharp rays of light are emitted, illuminating her empire of celestial dew.[Celestial dew is the substance that radiates from the pineal gland when it is stimulated in a higher vibration by the Kundalini, that baptizes the brain, resurrecting the 2/3ds of "sleeping brain" that is not used in the mundane, human-being. This dew awakens Divya-Sidhis and/or "magic abilities"] . The Child crest symbolizes the Divine Child within us all---the Innocent One of Enlightenment before we are "dumbed down" by indoctrination..
In her right hand, the Queen of Swords holds a sword (the Sword of Geburah-Severity) and in her left hand the head of a bearded man. That bearded man is the Mask of Patriarchal Culture that we use to define ourselves----when in Truth, We have already been Defined by the Divine as It's Child---enlightenment comes from realizing that no-further self definition is needed as we've been Defined into Being already! All other definition is just masking our Truth. So here we can see that the Queen of Swords is the clear conscious perception of Idea, the Liberator and expander of the Mind,
The Archetypical personality of this card would give a person lucidity of perception,  a keen observer (cutting edged), a subtle interpreter, an intense individualist, swift and accurate at recording ideas; confident in action, with a gracious and just spirit.  Being graceful in motion and extraordinary in balance, she will have exceptional dancing abilities. A very strong willed Woman who clearly knows what she wants and can bring about her ideas swiftly and without nonsense.
If ill dignified She will be a very dangerous person, of exceptional cruelty, slyness, and deceitfulness, all wrapped-up in a superficial beauty and attractiveness. This ill dignity is  because of  her inability to support interference, so  foresight, prudence, care in preparation of action (paying attention to details) will safeguard the individual from the negative side of this personality.
The Queen of Swords represents the True Will (Will-To-Be) and has the power to cleave away the unnecessary gross to build the Pure idea. To some this can be disastrous, but the Gross is all they believe in, knowing not their own Pure Self they see Kali-Ma as a Fanged Hag with Severed Heads {symbolizing personality death) standing on the backs of copulating Lovers who die in her Sword thrust. The "little death" of  orgasm is resplendent in this image, causing even greater fear of "male-female" union amongst the ignorant.  However, to the knowledgeable, the union of male-female is the sacred act of communion that builds All. [Tantric studies are recommended for those who wish to Know].....the flesh-o-phobes may just shiver in the joy of the nightmare of sensuality that comes with having a form build out of Divine Sensual Passion. The Lust To Be, is knowledge of the "Big Bang"---the Great Orgasm that has activated us all. To know the Dancing Goddess-God, is to Know Thyself!
'nuff said. I don't want to cause anyone to overly scourge their poor innocent body for the "wrong-doing" of impassioned thought; thought that seems out of control, only because the "man-made ego" is to weak to handle Divine power!. When that weakness masking us is removed, we find that we are the Divine Power that has clear purpose and Great Will to Be!
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Again a very enlightening article! I was wondering how one stimulates their pineal gland? I was also wondering about the correlation between the Queen of Swords and Kali-ma?

Thank you for your interest and comments. The pineal gland is stimulated by yoga-breath meditations. In my metaphysics category of this blog series, I mention a Yoga Breathing exercise that stimulates the pineal gland. Kali Ma, is the Hindu Goddess of the "Crone" persuasion. She "slices us up" to remove the unworthy parts of our psyche at death. Therefore, she is also the Queen of Swords, as she removes the illusions and delusions we have become. May you live long and prosper!

Sorry Tyler, My Yoga Breath meditation is in the category of Daily Aura and chakra reader, and not the metaphysics category. May you live long and prosper.

I do love the way you have framed this specific matter plus it really does present me personally some fodder for thought. Nonetheless, through what I have observed, I simply hope as the actual feedback stack on that folks continue to be on point and not embark on a tirade associated with the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this superb piece and while I do not agree with the idea in totality, I respect your standpoint.

It's also interesting that from her legs the number 17 is inverted. You really need to publish your reflections!

Thank you for your comments and observations. Durga the Ice Queen, is also a Kali image. It is necessary to remember, Father god, Will to force, forgives, but there is no forgiveness in the Mother. She is as Ice. Clear, pure, and static because of the stability of Form. Will to form, is Binah (Kali) and form is "frozen in time" thus what is not worthy of Her Form designs is "cloven away" by her sharp Sword (wit). May you live long and prosper.
