Rider-Waite and Thoth Deck Tarot Card Comparisons: THE QUEEN OF SWORDS

Mother Binah, the Third Sephiroth called UNDERSTANDING, is also often called the  Sanctifying Intelligence and known as the Parent of Faith. The Qabalistic Word Binah itself means Understanding.. What is often not realized is that She is also Chronos who is the oldest of ancient gods.  We may know him as "Father Time" but the highly restrictive nature of time, birth, aging and death are the ultimate result of the gift of Life bestowed by the female aspect of the Divine Creative- Binah. So once again the Sexing of the Sephira proves to be insubstantial for complete understanding.  It helps to remember that each Sephira has a expressive-male-state and a receptive-female-state of consciousness and that the Divine Creative is a combination of Kether, Chokmah and Binah, inseparable and infinitely inexplicable.
 
The Thoth Queen of Swords is Water of Air, which is also called Specific Water in the Realm of Primal Air.  Water is the element attributed to consciousness and air is the element attributed to mind.  Thus She is as Crowley stated in the Book of Thoth, "clear, conscious perception of Idea, the Liberator of Mind".
 
The Thoth Queen of Swords is the Queen of the Thrones of Air. Queen of  Sylphs and Sylpides, attributed to the last Decan of Virgo and the first two Decans of Libra. The Thoth card depicts Her with
a severed head in her left hand, reminiscent of Kali Ma, the Hindu Goddess of Life and Death. Here the Queen of swords has the severed head of The Patriarch or the mask of rule and slavery. The Sword of Geburah (an extension of Binah's authority over form)  in her right, pointing downward toward earth; indicating that she removes the masks of deceit and definition supplied by cultural thoughts as defined by Rulers and enforcers of definition.
 
Yetzirah,(The world of Air) is the world of deception and only keen perception, and observation are the Sword that slices away  all fantasy, delusion illusion and unreality.
The Queen of Swords also has upon her crowned head, a child's head viewing upward, implying that only the innocent child is unfettered by sterile concepts and useless ideas for they haven't been programed to believe in the Ruler's definition.
In the beginning we are the Child of the Divine Creative and are called Daath-Knowledge. That identity is rarely shown on the Tree of Life, nestled as it is between Chokmah and Binah on the middle pillar (above the head of the Adam Khadmond illustration). This invisibility is because this Child of Wisdom and Understanding, is all potential, allowing us to supply our own definitions of Self. Once theProdigal Child, who has walk down the Tree of Life to Earth, has consciously returned to the Parents (Supernal Triangle) and claims their inheritance, Daath becomes visible again. There is also a lesson to remember here: to accept any definition of yourself as less than the Child of the Divine Creative, is to become invisible to your Creator! It is necessary to understand that you are not a question in the Divine's mind. Questions cannot be made manifest, for they are a naught; an emptiness. You are made manifest, with the Divine Creative's mind (imagination) and the animal mind. You bridge the gap between creation and the Divine Creative. You are Knowledge and not a question. You are an answer that must above all things know thyself. Being you the best way you can imagine, is your purpose!

The severed head depicted on the Thoth card, indicates that The Queen of Swords is the Sanctifying Intelligence that removes the "head of man-made man" bring us into the Understanding of the ways in which each of us are deceived by thoughts while also teaching us to transcend them.  Thoughts are the Trickster, the "devil inside", that fools us into believing survival thinking as our primary consciousness, when all in all, Love is the consciousness of the Sanctifying Intelligence that has given our immortal Spirit Form.  Immortals don't worry about survival. They love and create ideas into mortal being. Thoughts are just definitions of ideas and thus subject to misdirection!  Therefore,"tough  love" , can be the Sword in Her hand which is the domain of Geburah, called, Severity. Another aspect of the Great Female Divine Creative Womb- Binah.

The Rider-Waite Queen of Swords, is very tame not disclosing any of her secret actions. Here a Great Queen, bigger than life, holds up a sword and offers a hand in peace, implying a peace won by severity. The only indication of the Divine Child is in the stone head motif of Her Throne. She is surrounded in the Air above, complete with flying bird, to imply the element of Mind, as does the cloud cloak that she wears. She is depicted as a very timid Kali-Ma. Again it helps to understand that Waite was sworn to secrecy in the Occult lodge of the Golden Dawn, so he displays only the mundane meaning in his cards.
 
When the Queen of Swords is thrown during a reading:
 
  • The querent desires to discard, pretense, masks, roles or defenses that hide their true self.
  • Wishes to develop or is developing intellectual thinking.
  • Is undergoing a sense of resolution and commitment.
  • Is experiencing intellectual maturity and is experiencing well tuned mental facilities. Sharp of wit.
  • Experiencing the Wisdom generated by sorrow. Finding Wisdom through the acceptance of Pain with courage, and honesty.
  • Strong willed and determined, this woman will  can bear  whatever life presents her with.
  • Deep comprehension of frightening truths,  Able to think the unthinkable and giving expression to the unspeakable.
  • The professional, who can handle situations capably, quickly and efficiently.
