Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot-Queen of Swords and The Elemental Tarot- Mother of Air.

 To reiterate, Binah, the Third Sephira-Understanding, is often called the  Sanctifying Intelligence and known as the Parent of Faith. The Qabalistic Word Binah itself means Understanding. She is the Conscious Energy behind the Queens.  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 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.
 
The 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 Sylphides, attributed to the last Decan of Virgo and the first two Decans of Libra.
The severed head in her left hand reminds me of Kali Ma, the Hindu Goddess of Life and Death. Here the Queen of swords has the severed head of The Patriarch  and the Sword of Geburah (and extension of Binah)  in her right, pointing downward toward earth; some call this a mask of the Patriarch, indicating that she removes the masks of deceit and definition supplied by cultural thoughts as defined by Rulers.
 
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 of their value.
The severed head, implies that The Queen of Swords is the Sanctifying Intelligence that   removes the "head of 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 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 created mortal being.  Thus,"tough  love"  which is a corrective, can be the Sword in Her hand, which is the domain of Geburah, called, Severity. Another aspect of the Great Binah.

Contrary to the opinions of the superstitious, and ignorant, the Divine Creative doesn't punish us. We are already judged by being Built Alive! As far as the Divine Creative is concerned,"You are made manifest, because you are good enough for God!" God doesn't create what God doesn't approve of! Religious faith and belief, cause more harm than good, as the religious tend to think of the Divine Creative as if it was an example of Earth royalty that treats its subjects as slaves and people of lesser value than the Ruler's wants. This simply states that the Divine Creative creates low-life that must be "domesticated" before it pleases its master. yet the fundamentalist's also say we are the Divine Creative's image on Earth! That would indicate we are the "highest life form", not slaves, but gods! This makes us selves of the Divine Self! Not slaves, not dogs, not cats, but Ruler's of our own Domain! That "domain" is your "self-image"!

Freedom of Choice, means you are your only punish-er and forgiver, for the body enacts your created thoughts, and those either cause you pain emotionally or physically, or pleasure, or something in between! Being unaware of your surroundings, because you are concentrating on an inner fear, will get you into accidents and even premature death; they are not punishment from god. We must learn to discriminate, for our thoughts are not reality! Reality is all around us, in us and as us, but few see it.  Most of us wish for Ecstasy which comes from the flow of "Whole Spirit/Conscious", and that is really what we are hoping to achieve. The Ecstatic Mind, is also known as the "higher self".
 
The Elemental Tarot-Mother of Air, is the comparable card to the Thoth Queen of Swords; air being the element of the Swords cards.
The mature woman seated on the throne, sits in front of a winged Sun. The Winged Sun depicts masculine energy.  The flowing hair is wavy and confused, indicating controlled emotion.
Her interesting apparel is decorated with mouths and ears. Implying, communication and shared views. According to the authors, the cubed base of the throne, with sun and moon motif of the Divine Creative, is surrounded by 16 smaller cubes, indicating locked or repressed secrets.

The upper left hand side of this Mother of Air card, shows the signs of Node/ Midheaven. I find this confusing since the Moon's nodes are given meaning primarily by the house position rather than the sign involved. Therefore, the individual meaning of the Moon's Node axis must be looked up under the corresponding house. An impression of the themes addressed by the position in the sign will be provided by checking the significance of the house as related to the sign; Aries=1st house, Taurus= 2nd house on to Pisces which = the 12th house, etc..

However, as that may be, the authors state that the "Node/Midheaven" =Shared views and ideas.
The lower left of the card displays the Egyptian glyphs attributed to this card. The bottom of the card displays the name, Amadai which indicates the earth in spring. Again, I fail to see the relevance. Yet again, "artistic" license rules the creation of the cards, but I wish it wouldn't confuse the issue!

When the Queen of Swords or Mother of Air card 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.
