Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Queen of Wands & The Babylonian Tarot Queen of Wands- Aya

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Queen of Wands: Represents the spiritual self-discoverer/ the knower of self.

"Above all things, know thyself" is the axiom of the Qabala and its' tarot cards.
This Queen card symbolizes the Specific Water in the World of Fire (Consciousness in Spirit).

The symbol of Pisces as a clasp on her chest, symbolizes the fluidity and the aspiration that is required to attain self-knowledge.
In one hand she has the fire wand, while the other rests on the head of a Leopard. The Leopard represents the extreme ferocity of Fire tamed by the Queen. The leopard is the fire of Two, the Dark goddess whose symbol is a black panther and the Goddess of the Sun whose symbol is the lion; the Dark Sun (Dark energy) and the  Visible Light Sun, therefore the dark spots on the golden leopard.

The pine cone on the wand tip, is a ancient symbol for Will. She represents willful control of the Fiery Nature of Creation; passion, intensity of purpose, and charismatic sensuality.

She is very attractive to men, as the active magnetic force that receives the fiery male electric force and controls it to create all living forms.

If this card is thrown for a man, it represents the magnetic side of his nature; the anima that is committed to trusting both internal and external experiences that lead to self-knowledge. Self Knowledge is represented by the radiant crown on her head.

When this card is thrown for a woman, it usually means that she is skillful, sexually attractive, mature woman who has routed the "fiery sexual energy" into creative self-expressive work such as art, music, dance or into a career that encompasses a lifetime dedicated to bringing something of value into being. 

The Thoth Queen of Wands, radiates from the 3rd Sephiroth, Binah-Understanding, as do all Tarot Queens.

 As stated before, in the zodiac, the Queen of Wands rules from 21st  degree of Pisces to the 20th degree of Aries and represents the mysteries of the Watery part of Fire (Consciousness of Spirit).

What can be simply said here, is that Fire is Spirit and the Watery part of Spirit is "spiritual matter" or the Conscious Spirit which is both fluid and colored (colors are not reflections of the force on this level--but the actual force itself) and is often mundanely called "Emotions". If one could see the Aura and Chakras, as I do, one would know that the 8 conscious-states of Energy, called auric bodies, are made of "Spiritual matter"....Solar-Conscious-energy and therefore are an "Entity" and each of us "Children of the Divine Universal Collective Unconscious", is a "collective of Entities", often fragmented, but a collective nevertheless. 

The Queen of Wands represents this mystery of the Maternal Solar-Mother of the Spiritual forms. Upon her head is the  winged globed-flame-rayed crown, in her left hand is the cone topped wand of Bacchanalian mysteries (Sacred Sensuality) and her left hand is placed on the sitting leopard. The Black Panther is (or black cat) is usually associated with the Dark Goddess, who represents the Dark Energy/Matter of quantum physics fame; However, this is the Solar Goddess, and the leopard is used to symbolize her power in repose since it is both black spotted and lion- tawny, as the lion is representative of the Sun.

Everything about this Thoth Queen card seems to shout "fire", but if you've noticed, it is a controlled force here, as even her fiery thrown is formed in geometric shapes suggesting "controlled"or purposely directed Passions of a fiery nature.

As an Archetype personality, this would be a red or golden haired woman who is adaptable (spontaneous) , persistent in her energy but of calm authority which she knowingly uses to enhance her attractiveness. Such a woman of passion can be vane, but that is because she knows that passion is attractive in its own rite. She is often kind and generous  but will not tolerate opposition.

There is an immense capacity for friendship and love, as that is the nature of fiery passion, however, it is always done on her own initiative where she can not be talked into it or out of it. The tyrannical tendency is very present here.

When ill defined The Queen of Wands personality can be snobbish, vane, brooding which invariably leads to the negative decisions that cause her to fiercely attack. Some might call this a "Fiery Latin" type of personality. Her Passion can be stunning whether it is a sexual relationship or a vendetta...so as the Leopard in her hand, she must be treated with respect, and remember that to play on her terms may be beyond the capacity of a less passionate mate; her wrath is a "New World Order".
Being that She is spontaneous in nature, she may enjoy young men more than the "'older, wiser Man", and find that she is unable to apply herself to "long term" relationships. Therefore this card represents lots of emotional/spiritual/physical power, but she definitely will need an "opposite" to help steady her, which because of her great reservoir of passion, balance will help her utilize her great capacity for lucid perception and steady prosecution of work; How this will only be under the guidance of a very creative mind who loves the heat of passion but has a strong emotional core of bliss.

With the fiery emotions of this Queen, there is a liability of fits of depression, that can lead to Tantrums and intoxication or fiery outbursts of panic stricken burst of fury. As in all powerful things, when well guided, there is great fun, joy and Bacchic- satisfaction here, but ill guided, great destruction is released. The surrounding cards in a reading will tell the able Tarot Reader what is guiding this great passionate personality and there is a whiff of Babalon (Crowley gematric-spelling) in this card by studying the "Scarlett Woman" the student will find further insight into this card. 
 In reiteration, Binah is the Third Sephira on the Tree of Life; she is called the Sanctifying Intelligence known as Understanding and is shown as "The Dark Sea of Binah".

The four Queens are another aspect of this Sanctifying Intelligence.
Seated and enthroned, the Queens represent the forces of Heh (meaning window or sight)  in the Divine Vibration of each suit.  By bringing forth a material Force of each suit, like the window in a home bring in the Sun light, the Queens, develop and realize (form) the force of the King.  This is a steady, unshaken and enduring force-in-form that is not as rapid in motion, as are the Princes.
 The Queen of Wands is Queen of the Thrones of Flame. Queen of the Salamanders, or Slamandrines.
Because the Queens are about Materialized Force, there are no Angels represented here, rather the Elementals are conscious force here.
The Queen of Wands is  Water of Fire, which would seem rather silly to mundane understanding; However, if we understood Water to be consciousness and Fire to be Primal Spirit, than this is less confusing.   This spirit-fire is Vital Life Force, that is sexual, passionate, extreme and often violent in Nature, as it is the Living Motion in the movement of all things. 

To show her great control over this Primeval Fire, the Queen of Wands sits on a Throne of flames, one hand resting on a leopard and one hand holding the Wand of Fire. Here the leopard represents the ferocity of fire's  consumptive nature, both light and dark, under the on-hands control of the Queen. 

The Wand, also a symbol of Will, indicates She is also able to direct the Force she has tamed.  This wand is also topped with a cone, besides proclaiming her undaunted will, it is also hinting at the mysteries of Bacchus and the pineal gland. Those mysteries merit further study by the interested student.

The Babylonian Tarot Queen of Wands- Aya (Sumerian-Serida),
depicts a goddess of light, who was the consort and "beloved one" to the Sun god Shamash.
On the Vernal Equinox in the ancient month of Nisan, the marriage of these solar deities was a New Year festival, in ancient Babylon. 
Because of the life giving energy of the Sun, Aya, was associated with fertility, and sexual love.

Aya is credited with receiving the Sun-Shamash, upon his setting in the West, leading scholars to speculate that she represented the "double sun" from the magnified solar disc that can be seen at sunset. Therefore, on the Babylonian Queen of Wands Tarot card, Aya is shown wearing the horned cap of divinity, crowned with the sun's golden rays. A double headed solar wand is shown on the right.

When the Queen of Wands is thrown during a reading, she represents:

  • Adaptability
  • Persistent energy
  • Calm authority that she often uses to add to her attractiveness.
  • Kind and generous to those who don't oppose her.
  • Hates opposition.
  • Powerfully  gracious in love and friendship, all of which is on her own terms.
  •  Her passionate emotion creates a Tendency to be side tracked from goals.
  • A deep desire to understand the deeper aspects of herself.
  • Hot passion and sharp wit.
The negative characteristics of this Queen, as shown by accompanying cards:
  • Vanity and snobbery
  • A tendency to brood, thereby, making wrong decisions that promote acting in great violence.
  • Her great passion makes her easy to deceive, causing her to react stupidly, tyrannically and obstinately.
  • One may be quick to take offense, harboring revenge without good cause.

As a birthday card, The Queen of Wands represents the character of a powerful, sexually attractive mature woman. Great Sexual energy, means great creative potential, so this person is best off, if she pores her passion into the arts and/or career. Devoting her life to bringing something of value into being. Being of Primordial Fire, this personality must practice focus and willful control of her Fiery nature, or all Hell will break lose!  Oh, did I mention that the figure on the Throne is that of the Goddess Hel  who rules the underworld of deep dark emotions?  And in Mythology, the underworld is where mundane souls go to be cleansed of memories of past life and cleansed for  a ritual rebirth, as in the "rising of the Phoenix" from its own ashes....of course, on Hel's initiative.
