Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot -Prince of Swords and The Elemental Tarot- Son of Air.

 To reiterate" The Princes are the personified Elemental Forces, of those 4 Alchemical elements that are brought into balance in Tiphareth.

The Thoth PRINCE OF SWORDS, is the mental element of ideas that can be constructive or destructive.
The Prince of Swords is also called the Chariot of the Winds, Prince and emperor of the Sylphs and Sylphides.
Zodiacally, he is the last Decan of Capricorn and the first two Decans of Aquarius. 
He is Specific Air of Primal Air. The Element Air, is Mind, so this one  is like the mind itself, which can love thought alone, and not care what it does. This specific air is Consciousness and the primal air is the Unconsciousness, which is the Mind to the physical vehicle.
 
The Golden dawn card, had two fairies pulling the chariot but in the, Thoth Tarot card of the Prince of Swords these fairies are shown as spheres of light in front of  the Chariot, accompanied by three winged children who are pulling it. Implying that, this chariot may be pulled capriciously and/or mischievously in any direction, imitating the Mind itself. Also there is significant Yesod-Moon symbolism here to suggest this is a card of  conscious-mind and unconsciousness.
In the right hand, the Prince is swinging the Sword of invocation and creation and in his left is a sickle which immediately destroys that which is created. With child like innocence, the Prince of Swords wields his Sword of Geburah, the sword of Justice and Strife. The logical mental processes of the Prince has reduced the Air (mind) into geometric symbols that represent no real plan, but are demonstrative power of undefined purpose.
As a person, The Prince of Swords personality is purely intellectual. Overflowing with ideas that tumble over each other in a mass unrelated to practical effort. This is a brain that won't quiet itself down long enough to focus well on one thing; intensely clever, admirably rational, with high degrees of thought, yet unstable of purpose.

There is in this Prince of mind, an indifference to their own thought, as any idea is worth exploring, but not for too long. By reducing every thought to ratiocination, this personality has removed all substance from thoughts, making them formal and fantastical, as they no longer relate to any facts; even those upon which the thoughts are individually based. Thus, this person is completely free from settled principles and is capable of conceiving and putting out any conceivable argument with out the clutter of remorse or regret. This would be a "Great Politician" because he is glib without conscience.  This is a mind so glib, that it is able to forget the contrary argument it produced minutes before and go sallying forth with a new argument. These people often become faddists, cultists and devotees of drink, drugs, theologies, humanitarianism, politics or music and religion, but without stability.

The Elemental Tarot-Son of Air, depicts a naked young man with arms open in a suggestion of vulnerability and openness. He is standing atop the World as if he owns it. There are two red figures on each side of him. One seems to be in despair and the other is reaching up in hope. Implying his mental acuity and ability to jump from one thought to another.

In the back ground, behind the blue water, are two mountains. One contains a Sword of aggression (Sword of Geburah) implying martial aggression, masculinity, power and a fighter for justice. The other mountain depicts 11 graves which represent sacrifice for a cause. (The number 11 in The Elemental Tarot, is Key 11-Law/System card of the Major Arcana). 

The Planetary influences applied (upper left) to this card are Mercury/Pluto which to astrologers imply the inquiring mind; but to the authors of this card, Mercury/Pluto mean Persuasive talking which is most apropos for that is another character trait of this planetary union. The Archetypes assigned to this Mercury/Pluto influence are Faust and Mephistopheles, and both were persuasive talkers. If negative, the Son of Air personality could be both a rogue and a reactionary. This meaning is well supported in the Thoth Prince of Swords, as well. Here we have the magic of words and thought.
The god word, Abraym implies the Sun in Spring. The Egyptian glyphs on the lower left, are assigned by the authors as symbolic meaning of this card.
On the upper right are The Elemental Tarot symbols for both  Air and water.
When the Prince of Swords or Son of Air card is thrown during a reading, the querent feels the need:
  • to release creative and intuitive thought while cutting through any barrier to this release.
  • There is a tendency to think too fast so slowing down the thought process is advised if success is to be achieved.
  • The querent is showing the tendency to be overly rational, missing the subtle emotional points that would heed success in communication.
If the querent is able or has achieved the ability to focus their thought:
  • they are committed to acting out their ideals and philosophy in their own lives; not really caring about how others do it, as they put incredible energy into supporting or examining particular beliefs.
  • They often present a magnetic personality that is extravagant, careless and excessive.
  •  Ruthlessly brilliant, they can have good business judgment.
  • There is a combative nature here, that is courageous, turbulent and skilled in the war of wits.
