Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 7 of Swords & The Elemental Tarot- 7 of Air/Wind

THE TAROT OF ELINetzach is the Seventh Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life and means- Victory.
Victory/Netzach is the conscious entity that governs Love, feelings and instincts through the activity of the Seven's. It is the Group Mind Sephira, influencing Nature and the Arts.  As quoted from the Qabalistic Tarot Text book of Robert Wang:
"The beams of Chesed and Geburah meet in Netzach and thence in Netzach arises a green, pure, brilliant, liquid, and gleaming like an emerald. And the Sphere of its operations is that of Nogah or External Splendour, producing zeal, love, harmony, and it ruleth the Sphere of Action of the Planet Venus and the nature of the Vegetable World. And Jehovah Tzabaoth is a God of Hosts and of Armies, of Triumph and of Victory, ruling the universe in Justice and Eternity. And its Archangel Hanial, is the Prince of Love and Harmony, and the Name of the Order of Angels is Elohim, or Gods who are also called the Order of Principalities."

The Thoth Deck Seven of Swords, is called Futility or Lord of Unstable Effort. Here,the Moon is in Aquarius which indicates sociability, and religious inclinations; However, the fact that the Moon is less fluid and less changeable here than in other positions, doesn't keep the balance from being precarious and easily upset.

This is Netzach in Yetzirah, influencing the Astral World.
Here, Crowley has precariously balanced the  Six planetary swords, one against the other, aimed against the Larger Sun Sword. Implying unstable effort, vacillation and untrustworthy character.

You may note, dear reader, that Netzach in the suit of Swords, does not represent as much catastrophe as in other suits,this is because the Sephira of Venus means Victory. There is, however,a wish to compromise. a halting tolerance and a certain vacillation. When over done, this need for compromise can bring disaster; not always does a policy of appeasement produce peace as any student of WW2 knows.

The Six Swords chipping away at the One Strong Sword, suggests a contest between the many feeble and the one strong. The Strong One strives in vain against the pusillanimity of the many.

The Thoth Seven of Swords-Futility represents the sabotaging mind where you know what you want, symbolized by the central sword, and then go about defining the reasons why you can't obtain it, as shown by the six swords surrounding the central one.  Obviously this is the "yes-but" mind that often keeps us from making our dreams work.

Astrologically the Thoth 7 of Swords is Moon and Sun in Aquarius. the circle with a dot in the center is a symbol of the Sun, the Crescent is The Moon and the wavy lines at the bottom are Aquarius. Each of the six swords of procrastination bear a planetary sign for the six ways we sabotage our selves. The yes-but aspect of Saturn is telling us there is too much red-tape or it's too complicated.

Another Sword has on the handle the symbol of Mercury which is about the negative communication of " I can't... I wish I'd a ...If only..." all negative reasons why "it won't work".

Another sword handle bares the planetary sign of Jupiter; the planet that symbolizes flexibility and expansion. The negative self-talk of Jupiter is  "it's too limiting and constricted" or " I am not lucky" or "I am not talented enough".

Another sword sports the planetary sign of Mars. Positively Mars is a sign of dynamic energy, vitality, and assertion but the negative side of Mars is " I don't have the energy to...I am burnt out...it's dull and boring etc."
Another sword handle is adorned with the sign of Venus; the planet of Love. The Venusian negatives would be," I really don't care...It doesn't mean anything to me anyway." 

Then there is the final sword whose handle supports the double loops which represent the Sun and the Moon the negatives of which are consciously and subconsciously you sabotage yourself out of doing what it is that you want to do. In other words, you are caught in wanna-be-ism which is a viscous cycle of mental inferiority. Instead of the Power of I AM, we are caught in the self-denial of I Ain't... Often we run "mind loops" that constantly repeat our past as today's reason for not progressing or going forward with our life. These mind loops are the "nag within" syndrome that fear of discomfort often generates in our subconscious to avoid presumed pain.

The Elemental Tarot 7 of Air/Wind,
concentrates on the risk of futile thoughts of fantasy.

Shown is a pale figure, propped up on a cloud, as if in a dream like trance; as if the Unconscious is not concerned with the care free Consciousness that is putting its head in a tiger's mouth. The Tiger is the traditional emblem of gamblers, and implies destructive or creative power.

With one hand touching the sky, and the other, the earth, the carefree blue figure, demonstrates the possibility of making a crazy idea practical.
All the scattered symbols on the yellow ground, symbolize missed opportunities.

Again the authors place two Planets together as aspects of this card. Here, the symbols of Mercury and Neptune are placed in the upper left corner of the card, the combined aspects of which the authors suggest means, imaginative faculty.
Some of the astrological aspects of Mercury and Neptune are;
Mercury:
  1. Thinking -----Neptune - --Sensing.
  2. Knowledge---Neptune---Fantasy. 
  3. Perceiving--- Neptune-- Dreaming.
  4. Clever--------Neptune---Mediumistic.
  5. Rational----  Neptune-----Irrational.
  6. Sobriety-----Neptune----Intoxication.
  7. Physics------Neptune----Metaphysics.

As one can see, Mercury is rational consciousness, while Neptune is imaginative-Unconsciousness.

The god-name of Bunjil, is the aboriginal god of the sky. The Egyptian symbols representing this card are shown in the lower left side of the card.

The number 7 and its symbols are shown on the upper right while the bottom of the card displays the blue circle of Air.

When the Thoth 7 of Swords-Futility or The Elemental Tarot 7 of Air/Wind card is thrown, you will have the opportunity presented to you:


  • In the next 7 weeks or 7 months to break out of your self-imposed defeatism and move towards creating what you really do want.
  • It's time to "damn the torpedoes and go full steam ahead".
  • You do know what you want, that is the truth. The falsehood is the feeling of hopelessness and helplessness.
  • Remember that the 7's are associated with the Charioteer, which is the originator of motion and change. So this card is not nagging at your weakness but advising you that choosing you wants moves you forward into a satisfying life motion and that you have the inherent power to do so.
  • You have the capability to release sabotaging thought processes that where developed in a past that may go back to 7 years or when you where 7 years old.
  • Focus on what you truly want; focus your heart, creative mind and passion on it, and your programed self-defeat won't be able to impede you , it just becomes white noise in the back wash of your powerful wake on the ocean of possibilities.
  •  the querent maybe experiencing thoughts of futility. A sense of resignation produced by wanting something but believing they can't have it.
  • Giving up. 
  • There is a possibility of breaking through this futile cloud, in seven weeks or seven Months. 
  • This card suggests that because of guilt feelings or resentment, the querent is creating problems for themselves.
  • There is a certain craftiness displayed, schemes and actions are brought to bear, that solve nothing.
  • There is an opportunity to regroup and review, if one forgoes the schemes and seeks advice from others.
  • It is suggested that there is just too much noise in the brain for focused action, as many feeble thoughts of vacillation out shout the One strong will to act.
