THE Thoth PRINCESS OF WANDS:
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 unwilled, 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, shown by grasping the Tiger by the Tail, and given it
direction----where She goes--Passion goes.
The Thoth Deck Ace of Wands, shown as a fiery club.(flames in shape
of Yods- Meaning Hands), represents the essence or seed of the Alchemical Element-Fire.
It is a solar-phallic outburst of flame from which lightning springs
forth in multi-direction. If you were looking at the Sun, it would
comparable to multiple solar flares, as this is how the Sun acts as a
phallus by ejecting its "seed" into the dark womb of space-time.
It is the Earliest stage of Primordial matter, unwilled and violent.
is important to remember that , although the small cards are
sympathetic to their numbered Sephiroth, they are not identical nor are
they Divine Persons. They are more like sub-elements and/or parts of
"Blind Forces" whose ruling intelligences are of the Realm of Yetzirah,
The Formative World( Hebrew-Shemhamphorasch).
What is astounding to note, if
not confusing, is that each Major Arcana (Atu) has its own Tree of Life
and hierarchy. Obviously this requires more investigation on the
students part. As a student who teaches, I am still investigation this
The Princess of Wands, 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
a person omnivorous in
passion of whatever kind, entirely reckless in the means of obtaining
gratification, and insatiable. It is notable, that She has given Will to
the primeval violence of Male Force ..."by naming Him Father." using
His fiery flow to impregnate her every action, as does Earth, the Sun.
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.
Princesses have no zodiacal attribution as the reside as energy conscious in the quadrants of the North, with Earth. Thus they are likened to
"elemental" people who are recognized by their lack of all sense
responsibility and whose moral qualities are very flexible. Therefore they
are sub-divided according to planetary predominance.
persona Elyphas 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) 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 un-perverted 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!
PRINCESS OF WANDS:
In some tarot decks wands are called
clubs but no matter what you call them wands are the fiery nature of
Spiritual expansion and expression. The Princess of Wands,is also a male person in some cards and is called a
Page. The Elemental Tarot names her Daughter of Fire.
this card represents a combination of Fire and Earth (fire of earth
card) it is truly an androgynous expression of mastery of internal
blocks, obstacles and obstructions. Fearless, spontaneous expression,
She has the tiger by the tale! She is both magnetic and electric; a free
and liberated spirit that resides in all of us as a divine
inheritance. This is all about motion; "moving up" in new directions
that fearless and energizing like her sun wand.
Wearing the Aries
crown, the Thoth Princess has placed her old obstructions and fears on the
altar of Spring and offers them as a Spring sacrifice. Totally exposed
and seemingly defenseless she boldly expresses her new motion creating
her own beauty by her essential vigor and force. She believes in the
power statement of "Get over yourself and get on with you, impeccability
is what we do"! She is a Solar Self that owns and runs her physical
self which she sees as her own power tool.
The Elemental Tarot states that all Daughters have the elemental quality of water. Therefore the Daughter of Fire is Fire+Water, implying creative emotions. A young red woman is emerging from a door holding a communication, or contract. This is reminiscent of the god Mercury, who is a "messenger of the gods", so I am not sure why this is so on this card as the astrological assignation of this card is Mars/Node (symbols of which are in the upper left corner).
Behind her the sky is bright blue, bespeaking of her water connection. To the right are three striped palms trees in various states of progressive growth. The black stripes, imply a ladder a the climb of creative ambition.
The blue carrier pigeon has a red letter in its beak. I guess this would be a "red letter" day, as the figures below are dancing in what seems to be expressive joy. The mouth and ear symbols beneath the red dancers, imply communication and cooperation.
The Egyptian glyphs for this card are in the lower left (see illustration above). The God name Armatus is assigned to this card, representing the Moon in Summer. The red triangle at the bottom of this card is the Elemental Tarot symbol for fire. What seems to be implied by this card, is that the Daughter of Fire is a female version of Mercury, and is communicating a working to a common end and cooperation.
When the Thoth Princess of Wands or The Elemental Tarot -Daughter of Fire card is thrown during a reading:
- It states
that it is time to express one's sense of Freedom (from the Anglo-Saxon
Free-doom--which means "I choose my own death"), adventure, passion to
be and initiating something new.
- If you are male, it points to the anima within
you that doesn't want her forms to be limited or obstructed by fear.
- This is the
symbol of the ultimate free spirit within us all that overcomes fear
and accelerates creative purpose.
- We are all "star seeds" and have a
deep inner fiery nature that will not be subdued.
- This inner passion is
best channeled in life expanding creative ways and gestures!
- Allowing the inner fire to express itself as you will definitely enhance your "living experience"!
- A young woman filled with the passion of creative ideas, and the energy to devote to her projects.
- A young go getter, who is good at getting a team together.
