Thoth Tarot & comparisons

The Shadow Series, Tarot Card Comparisons: The Queen of Swords and The Shadow Tarot -Pythoness of Dark Energy at the Event Horizon

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Queen of Swords, represents, Mastery of Objective Thinking and Clarity: Intellectual Thinking.

The lavishly illustrated card represents the Greek Goddess Athena-Diana-Artemis or if Hindu, the Goddess Kali.

She is sitting on a cloud, with sword and mask in hand, as she is the mask-cutter. She is the fair witnessing mind who removes all illusion and sees the Real that is masked by reality.

The Queen has cut through her own masks, roles, and defenses in order to retain her clarity and objectivity (The crystal crown). The child's head above the crown of clarity, symbolizes her child-like innocence and curiosity.

This Queen is the counselor or consultant for others and also has the courage to seek counsel and consulting for herself when necessary.

Therefore this card represents the mastery of objective which is the deepening of a centered rational mind; the quality of mind that demands objectivity, authenticity, and abandonment of pretense. The Observer within our consciousness which is detached from roles and assists us in reconnecting with our child like truth.
 
To reiterate, Binah, the Third Sephiroth, is often called the  Sanctifying Intelligence and known as the Parent of Faith. The Qabalistic Word Binah itself means Understanding and all Thoth Queens radiate from Binah.
What is often not realized is that She, Binah, 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 Queen of Swords is the Queen of the Thrones of Air. Queen of  Sylphs and Sylpides, attributed to the last Decan of Virgo and the first two Decans of Libra.




The severed head in the Thoth Queen's left hand reminds me of Kali Maa, the Hindu Goddess of Life and Death, but less ferocious in depiction.



Here the Queen of swords, as does Kali Maa, has the severed head of The Patriarch  and the Sword of Geburah (and extension of Binah)  in her right, pointing downward toward earth; indicating that she removes the masks of deceit and definition supplied by cultural thoughts as defined by Rulers, academia and theology. 
 
Yetzirah,(The world of Air/Mind) 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.

The severed head, implies that The Queen of Swords is the Sanctifying Intelligence that removes the "head of man", and/or "cultural thinking", 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 or bedevils 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", can be the Sword in Her hand, which is the domain of Geburah, called, Severity. Another aspect of the Great Binah.

The Shadow of the Thoth Queen of Swords, is represented in The Shadow Tarot, Pythoness of Dark Energy at the Event Horizon/ Capella.

Capella is often called, "the Shepard's star" or "the little she goat". 
In Greek Mythology, Capella was called Amalthea, the wet nurse  who suckled Zeus on mount Ida.

Capella is a white star, situated on the body of the goat that lies in the arms of Auriga, the Charioteer.

















As the Greek myth goes, the goat in the arms of Auriga, had a horn broken off during play with Zeus. That Horn is translated into the heavens as Capella, the "horn of plenty" and/or the Cornu-copia, which is an important star in Egyptian temple worship.

On the Egyptian Dendera zodiac, Capella is shown as a mummified cat held in the outstretched hand of a man crowned in feathers.
In ancient Greece, a temple at Eleusis dedicated to the Goddess Diana was orientated to this star.
Capella was also the Arcadian "Messenger of Light", the "patron star of Babylon".
It is said that to wear the sigil of the Capella -Pythoness card, is to receive honor and exaltation among nobility.












When the Queen of Swords or The Shadow Tarot-Capella 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.
  • The counseling or consulting aspect that is witnessed when people ask for clarification or have the desire to get to the bottom of things.
  • This is an aspect of mind that any decent Tarot Reader knows personally and for me, passionately. For I being a practicing Qabalist, and Tantric, I know Kali Ma, Kali Ema and Kali Uma, as a union of the three stages of the female anima (Earth Feminine consciousness) Maid, Mother and Crone. Each one of these aspects of the Divine Feminine, demands the release of pretense and self-absorbed ego.
  • Illusion must be stripped away from our eyes that are blinded by culture, indoctrination and thought organized for us by others.
  • To be psychic is to be child-like in your observation, where everyone is another way to be you but not necessarily the way you are. Observation without judgment of right and wrong.
  • She knows, and does not believe, as she sees belief as untried theory. In other-words, belief is pretense of knowledge and is not to be confused with faith which is Trust.
  •  Metal clarity, is a place many of us fear to go; we fear we might not like what we see.  You will be surprise when you become mentally clear, Truth built you so it could be you. Truth is made manifest as you, it is a dynamic presence, not a belief system. Kali/Athena may seem ruthless, but she is precisely merciful  with out the pretense of "bowing to our weakness".
