The Princesses of the Thoth Deck, are the Pages, in many other decks, including the Tarot of the Old Path.
The pages are androgynous and most often portray a youthful person..
The Tarot of the Old Path portrays the Page of Rods, as a blonde,,blue- eyed youth who is trustworthy and dressed in the colors of Fire: the element of this card
In the youths right hand, is a rod of white ash and in his left is a scroll of written spells that he has been entrusted with and communicates to others.
His floppy hat partially shadows his vision of what lies ahead , Beside him are ferns which in the language of plants represent trustworthiness.
The primary meaning of the Page of Rods, seems to be of a good intentioned youth who unwitting transmits secret or confidential information to others.
The Thoth Deck Princess of Wands :
THE PRINCESS OF WANDS: represents the Earthly part of Fire. She is the expression of the irresistible action of a combustible substance and rules from the Heavens from one quadrant around the North Pole (She=Magnetic Force).
It is interesting to note, that the Female Force gives Form to the Fiery-electric male force, which in its primeval stage, as the Ace of Wands, is un-willed, unformed and undirected. But like the Magnetic Field of Earth, giving form to the Solar rays, not unlike the Aurora in the night sky, She justifies the direction of this male Force. With flames of justice leaping from her forehead, and wearing nothing as a sign that she is perfectly free to combine with her partner.
She bears a wand crowned with the Disk of the Sun and leaping into Yod shape surging flame.
The Lords of Fire reside in the realm of Yetzirah, towards which she is leaping, thus she can be compared to the Virgin Priestess of the Lords of Fire. Further championing this fact, is the illustration of the flame topped Altar of Spring, in the left lower corner of this card.
The "seed of fire", The Ace of Wands" is now given a personal Willful expression in the Princess of Wands, as she is brilliant and daring. She has bridled passion, and fearless as shown by grasping the Tiger by the Tail, and given it direction----where She goes--Passion goes.
Like Fire, it is her essential vigorous energy, that describes her beauty.;beauty seen, as the force of her personality dazzles her beholder. Such force can also be expressed as love and anger, which is passionately charged into sudden forms of violence and implacability. Much like a Coral snake, stand back and enjoy its beauty, but don't try to posses it, as its anger is terminal.
Thus we have pegged the Princess of Wands as a personality/intelligence, that harnesses the Ace of Wands to Earth ( mate to the Solar phallus) and is volatile in nature. She consumes all within Her Sphere. She is ambitious, aspiring and full of enthusiasm and is often accused of being irrational. Being the Earthly Part of Fire, She is likened to the Polynesian Volcano Goddess, due to her Volcanic Personality. She is the Earthly fiery womb, rather than the Earthly Watery Womb.
If the Princess of Wands is ill dignified or thrown together with the Ace of Wands, we have:
The name Yod He Vau He, often called the Hebrew name for God, is attributed to the Court Cards, where Yod, is attributed to Knights, He-to Queens, Vau =is attributed to Princes and the last He-is attributed to Princesses, the Earthly Manifestation, as the ultimate issue of the original Energy in its Completion, i.e. crystallization. However, they also represent the counter-balancing and re-absorption of the Energy. They are also the Silence into which all things return.
The Princesses have no zodiacal attribution,. Thus they are likened to "elemental" people who are recognized by their lack of all sense responsibility and whose moral qualities are very flexible. Thus they are sub-divided according to planetary predominance.
Of such persona Eli Levi wrote:" The love of the Magus for such creatures is insensate, and may destroy him." Which it will, as lovers of the Scarlett Woman (Babalon-Crowley's spelling) have found out. She will consume you, as fire does a wyrm, only for you to rise again as a phoenix out of the ashes of Universal consumptive passion, a form of Dragon is made manifest. Be very cautious young magi, She is spontaneous and unforgiving! But if there is any of the Eternal Fire unperverted in you, and your Will is unshakable in unrequited- Passion's extreme heat, she'll make you blaze as a Star! If your sanity doesn't return expanded, then your will was flawed.. Needless to say, this Elemental Persona is not for the timid.
If the Princess of Wands is thrown during a divination:
