Thoth Deck Tarot: THE PRINCE OF SWORDS

The Prince of Swords represents the airy part of Air which as air is directed by "outside influences" such as the heat of passion and the coolness of pure coldness.
This is the Archetypical personality of the intellectual, pure mind, as such. The Prince of Swords rules the zodiac from the 21st degree of Capricorn to the 20th degree of Aquarius.  The Prince of Swords is dressed in woven-full armor of definite device. His chariot is composed of geometric ideas. This chariot is drawn by unharnessed wing children "who are flights of fancy" and may go any-which way they like, as the reins are attached to passing geometric ideas. This is like the knowledge of Euclid expounded upon by an idiot, whose argument takes any twist and turn it wants to, and yet be totally "rational". Thus the chariot is easily moved but unable to go into any definite direction---except by accident. 
This is pure intellect without direction supplied by the Will/Spirit. Never the less, the Prince of Swords is crown by a Child's Head, for there is a secret Divinity here that is linked up to Tiphareth (the Son of God)., but usually if this personality thinks in terms of the divine, it believes it is above all others and suffers from the righteousness of an fanatic.
Since the logical process of the Prince of Swords has reduced the Air  to many diverse geometric patterns, they reduce the power of creative mind, as they have no definite purpose. This is symbolized by the Sword in his right hand (willingness to create) and in his left hand a sickle, which destroys what he immediately creates. Being that his thoughts require no practical effort, he is purely intellectual, full of ideas that tumble over one-another in a mass of ideas unrelated to each other. He has all the apparatus of the Mind, intensely clever, admirably rational, thought in its highest degree, but unstable of purpose as even his own ideas are approached with his indifference. He knows that any idea is as good as another and can rationally persuade an Eskimo into buying a deep-freeze even though nature has already provided! By removing the substance of an idea, he can place every idea into an ideal world of ratiocination....it always looks good on paper no matter how impractical it is to build!
Being that ratiocination is purely formal, even the very facts that promote his ideas are ignored so that his ideas become baseless and unreal. This person is immensely powerful because of their unsettled principles which enable them to put forth any argument without regret or remorse...kind of like a insane-used-car salesmen from hell. The Prince of Swords personality is glib to quote scripture, cunningly supporting any thesis without considering the fact that he supported an opposite thesis earlier in his bombast. He is impossible to defeat because any position is as good as another and ready to enter into combination with the nearest element available. He really doesn't care if his or her ideas are detrimental to life, the idea is its own purpose! His/Her momentary Vision is above all else!
These elusive and elastic people are only of use, if mastered by the Greater Will and Intellect of Spirit...as in the 6th Sephiroth on the Tree of Life known as Tiphareth-Beauty Which is the Divine Child in manifestation. The Chaotic nature of Pure Mind must be controlled by the Understanding Mother of All form--- as Force for its own sake is utter destruction of all life. Without the Understanding of Spirit and It's purpose for life, these personalities become faddists, fundamentalists, fanatics, devotees of drink and drugs, humanists (those who believe that mankind is the center of the universe----all else can cease to exist.) and bible thumping theologians. But even in  such directions there is not stability, and they wander from cult to cult, vice to vice, supporting fanatical convictions for the sake of whim. It is easy to be deceived by such people as they manifest great potency of thought and are often describe as having great depth and breadth of mind. As in all readings, the surrounding cards will show the dignity of this card.
There is however, a bright light here when Pure Mind aligned with Pure Spirit, ideas can become living image. Pure Spirit does not reside in religion...that chaos of ideas belongs to the idiots that praise god for creating life while their fanatical ideas destroy it all around them. Rather the Purity of Spirit that is the Life itself, that resides as the Great Ocean of Mother all around, in and through us.....AS US! So once again, "above all things know thyself", is necessary here.. I Am Love and all around me Love is expressing itself as another way of being. We belong to each other, and not to ideas that separate us from each other. Ideas, have no purpose unless applied to the unification of  Life---for that is the Great Work of Spirit. Ideas make God in their own image, while God-makes us into It's image! Thus it is obvious, that to know God is to Know thyself! Thank you for your ideas and comments.
May you live long and prosper!

Hi Eli. It looks to me as if the card represents a fractal nature of the all-mind. All the individual figures (minds) pull the chariot of the group mind. As we can se, each figure puling, is a replica of the prince on the chariot. It also seems to me that the prince is trying to keep the ideas "in line" with the sword, trying to keep a course. Could we interpret this card as "our progress to where we want to be depends on the alignment and net sum of energy of each of our thoughts / creations"? Sorry for my poor english, I hope this makes sense.

Hi Mario. No doubt there is a lot of mental energy expounded here, but it is scattered among too many thoughts, as the brain won't stop associations. We should remember, that the Princes are core personas, according to our Astrological Birth charts, but that all of the 16 Court Cards, are in each of our souls. Often, our personality changes from Prince of Swords to Princess of cups, or from Princess of Disks to Prince of Wands etc. So, there is indeed a fractal of Personalities in the Psyche. None of us, can stick to just one Persona, as we all love the masks we wear. As a Soul, I love the experiment of I AM ME, and can't get over how fun it is to change faces. We can interpret this card as our attempts to hold one thought among our scattered thinking, but not successfully. Thank you for your bright and insightful questions and comments. May you live long and prosper.
