The Thoth card, THE PRINCE OF WANDS, may seem a bit off kilter in this
illustration, this is purposely done as its not a static card---it's a dynamic "rockin'" card!
The Prince of Wands is the Principle of Mastery of inspired creativity
! The Prince Of Wands, is the Sun Warrior
not only does he represent swiftness, strength, brilliance and agility,
he is the paradigm of dynamic mastery of unlimited creative expression
from deep within; from the Universal Source.
The causally thrown reins
over his wrist, symbolizes the inspired creativity that is not held back
and is free to manifest and express itself. The Solar Lion (The Lion is a symbol for the Sun) freely
pulling the Chariot, symbolizes self trust in letting the creative
process flow, without restriction nor restraint.
The contained fire in
the chariot (The Chariot is Female/Magnetic container), is focused concentration and attention to manifest one's
creativity that comes from above (The chariot is coming down from the
The Sun- Prince
has a deep passion (open flower on chest-open heart
chakra) for expressing one's own creativity.

his commitment to expanding and liberating himself through
the creative process. The Phoenix wand is also "reincarnation", something the Mythological Greek God-Man Prometheus did as he was chained to a Mountain (Earth) by His Father Zeus, for stealing His Fire (Spirit) and giving it to mankind. His reincarnation began every 7 days,as a great Vulture ate his liver every 7 days.
Of interest, is that the Great Vulture, is Wega (Star Vega) which is ancient Babylonia was the "messenger of light" and is also linked with the Goddess Hel-Aine. Then there are Seven Sisters or the Stars of the Pleiades system. The myth goes on to say that Prometheus was rescued by the Goddess Hathor, the Great Cow, which is Taurus in the Zodiac .
All of these Stars, have something to do with "those who from the sky came" (Sumerian-Annunaki) and I am sure an interesting connection can be made when connecting the Myth and these Stars. You'll have to do this on your own as, this blog is just too small of a vessel for such a great volume of information. For your study, the alien DNA of the Angels who impregnated the women of mankind was supposed to come from the Orion/Sirius/Pleiades,section of the Night Sky. I find this quite interesting.
(Depending on the myth of the culture, one or all three! )
However, back to the Prince of Wands for when you are "channeling" information through a expanded crown chakra or lost for
hours during a creative process, you are experiencing The Prince of
Wands that is inherent in all of us "Star spirits" who came to earth to
use a human creative power body!
By just looking at this Thoth Deck Card, The Prince of Wands presents
a powerful figure which definitely compliments this omnivorous
personality. He is often compared to the Archangel Michael, or Prometheus. Some say, Lucifer, as He is the Shadow Side of Archangel Michael. All of which point to the fact, he is a powerful personality of the Solar Self. He also could be a Annunaki coming down from the heavens on his "flaming chariot".
The Prince of Wands represents the Airy part of Fire (Conscious Spirit)
ever expanding and volatile force.
In the zodiac, he rules from the 21st
degree of Cancer to the 20th degree of Leo.
When viewing the
Qabalistic Thoth Tarot card, we
see this warrior dressed in scale mail, with his vigorous arms uncovered
which emphasizes his great ability for activity. Therefore this card exudes
swiftness, passion and power, from his winged lion helm, all aflame, to
his flaming lion drawn chariot. On his chest is the sigil of To Mega
and in his left hand he bears the wand of the 2nd Adept (in the
ritual of 5 degrees=6 degrees of R.R. @ A.C.), the wand of power and
energy while he controls the reins of the Lion steed (Leo and Sun) with
his right. The sea of flames both radiant and salient, is his path of
The Shadow Tarot Card
, Aldebaran, carries on this fascination with Hathor (Hastur-in Sumerian) and Taurus. The Star Aldebaran was called the "Eye-Star of Osiris" and is a pale rose colored star marking the Taurus Bull's left eye. This Red Giant star was considered one of the 4 "Watchers of the Heavens", which later became the "Archangel stars and then the "four horseman of the Apocalypses". Therefore, Aldebaran was considered the Archangel Michael, the "Watcher of the East."
In 3044 B.C.E., the Star Aldebaran, marked the exact zero point of the Vernal Equinox, in the constellation Taurus. At that time, this made Aldebaran the "The Leading Star of Stars", and all star longitudes were measured from Aldebaran or its opposite, Antares; "The Watcher of the West". Antares, marked the zero point of the Fall Equinox c. 3052 B.C.E., signifying the Archangel Oriel. The Archangel Gabriel was considered as the Star Fomalhaut which was "Watcher of the South" and marked the winter solstice in c. 2582 B.C.E. The Archangel Raphael, was considered to be the Star Regulus, the "Watcher of the North" and was the zero point of the Summer Solstice c. 2345 B.C.E. Fascinating for here we have more mythologized references to "Those who from the Sky came", and supposedly mated their DNA to create Homo Sapiens (modern mankind) for their mining skills.
By skrying The Shadow Tarot, Aldebaran, one should be able to link their psyche to a frequency in the Divine Collective Universal Unconscious, and thus contacting these Archetypes. When building a Talsmanic Alter for skrying use:
For magickal images, use a "Flying man" or God, which the Thoth Tarot Card shows.
Magickal influences attributed to Aldebaran are riches and honor.
Magickal Tokens are Carbuncle, ruby, and milk thistle.
As an Archetype his morality is swiftness and strength, (not the foolishness of "good and bad")
reacting with impulsiveness to outside influences.
- When reacting
to trifles, he can become undecided because he views them unimportant
and not flamboyant enough for a heated argument, in which he not only
excels but also enjoys.
- His volatility demands volatile displays of
opinion, even if he rarely believes "whole heartedly" in such.
- He just
loves stating a vigorous proposition for the sake of vigor!
- He can argue
with vehemence both sides of any question which tends to make him slow
to make up his mind thoroughly on any subject.
- His sense of justice is
well made, but he feels that justice isn't really achieved in the
intellectual world, showing a noble and generous character.
embellishment is often vigorous, he loves to "tell tall tales" and his
boasting can attain great heights, while slyly laughing internally at
himself and the listening audience.
- Some may proclaim he is a liar, but in truth he just loves to entertain both
himself and others, while not taking the world of man to seriously. Thus
he is often endeared to elaborate pranks, and even horrendous bouts of
ridicule on some inoffensive nobody, only to give the shirt of his back
to the same target, if needed.
- He really doesn't even take himself to
seriously; he just loves Vigorous passion!
- His pride is great and his
scorn for meanness and pettiness is even greater.
- With fanatical
endurance and massive doses of courage, he will fight the great fight
against all odds and over the long haul, he will win because of his
enormous capacity for work; a work which he exercises for its own sake;
loving the journey more than the goal.
- His haughty contempt for the
world at large coexists with his profound respect for everyman and
Woman, as a Star of individual and rare beauty.
- This type of
Powerful, swift, vigorous and generous personality holds terror for those
who wish to hide amongst the herd and he will often incur enemies who
talk malicious gossip behind his back rather than face the Lion before them. In fact
many of his "enemies" will never have met him but as in all fear based minds, hearing about him
was enough terror for them.
If ill dignified;
- The Prince of Wands
is antithesis of the above qualities, and shows great
cruelty,indifference and is often sadistic.
- He will show tenancies for
laziness, intolerance, prejudice all because these are qualities of the
idle mind and saves the trouble of thought.
- He would also be a great
boaster and a coward, who talks behind others back.
However, such a powerful spirit is usually
well dignified and with a sincere heart he works to benefit those
below. He really enjoys intercourse with people, and loves to hear them
