Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Prince of Wands & The Babylonian Tarot Prince of Wands-Girra

The Tarot of EliBy just looking at this  flame tossed Thoth Deck Card, The Prince of Wands presents a powerful Promethean figure which definitely compliments this omnivorous personality.  The Prince of Wands represents the Airy part of Fire (Mind of Spirit) and ever expanding and volatile force. In the zodiac, he rules from the 21st degree of Cancer to the 20th degree of Leo.
When viewing this card, we see this solar warrior dressed in scale mail, with

his vigorous arms uncovered which emphasizes his great ability for activity.  The very essence of this card exudes swiftness, passion and power. From his winged lion helm, all aflame, to his flaming lion drawn chariot, this fiery Promethean roars, "I love burning"! He is vigor's motion, stabilized by passionate identity.

On his chest is the sigil of To Mega Therion and in his left hand he bears the Phoenix 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 travel.
This card, THE PRINCE OF WANDS, may seem a bit off kilter in this illustration, but 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,shown as Prometheus in the Thoth Tarot and as Girra, the deified fire of the Babylonian Tarot, 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.

On the Qabalistic Tree of Life, The Princes all rule from Tiphareth- Beauty, the 6th Sephiroth (6 is the number associated with the Sun) that is the "Sun/Son of god". He is the manifested Solar Logos that resides in the core of our Personality and is the forethought (the Greek word Prometheus) that guides "those who have ears to hear" through all challenges.

The Thoth Deck presents this Prince of mental-Spiritual conflagration as  having causally thrown reins over his wrist, symbolizing the inspired creativity that is not held back and is free to manifest and express itself...no matter what or whom wishes otherwise!
The Solar Lion freely pulling the Chariot, symbolizes self trust in letting the creative process flow, without restriction nor restraint.
The contained fire in the chariot, represents focused concentration and attention to manifest one's creativity that comes from above (The chariot is coming down from the heavens).

The character of the Prince of Wands promotes a deep passion (open flower on chest-open heart chakra) for expressing one's own creativity.
The phoenix wand and cape expresses his commitment to expanding and liberating  himself through the creative process.

The Myth of Prometheus (Greek word meaning "forethought") explained him as a Titan, son of the Titan Lapetus by Clymene, of of the Oceanids. Titans were the "Children of the Gods" (Demiurges), wrought by the mating of the Olympians with humans, or Titans with Titans (also explained in Genesis where... "the angels married the women of men").

Ancient myths and legends relate at least four versions of the narratives describing Prometheus and his exploits with Zeus including his eternal punishment inflicted upon him by Zeus for stealing fire from Olympus, against the will of Zeus and giving it to mankind.
In the Theogony of Hesiod, Prometheus was presented as a lowly challenger to the Zeus's omnipotence (much like Lucifer in the Bible). The judgement of Zeus for giving mankind the "fire of Olympus", making man "equal to the gods", was to chain him to a mountain and have a vulture eat his liver every 7 days.  This may seem a weird punishment, unless one knows that the Liver was seen by the ancient Greeks as the organ of mankind's intelligence/soul. Therefore, Prometheus, an immortal ( a Sumerian Annunaki human genetic crossover) that was "disowned" by Zeus  and made to be human, was chained to earth incarnations, having to experience death and personality memory loss, like the rest of mundane humanity. However, he was said to have been rescued by the goddess Hathor (Hera) who became his lover. 
 No matter the interpretation, Prometheus was always presented as a Champion of Mankind, who believed that man was as good as the gods and because of his sacrifice, can become reincarnated without memory loss.

The Babylonian Tarot, Prince of Wands-Girra, was considered the son of Anu and Sala (or Ki) and was the symbol of every aspect of fire; from the oppressive heat of the Mesopotamian summer, to the kiln of the potters, to the bakers ovens and the metal worker's forges. Because of the many useful aspects of fire, Girra was called "the founder of cities".  As fire was considered a great counter-force against malevolent magic and sorcery, Girra like Nusku, was the deified fire god called on to burn the "nasties".

In the Babylonian Tarot Card, Girra is shown as holding a scepter while standing in a ethereal circle of incantation. Surrounded by a ring of fire, he is both stern and unyielding.  Terms of which describe the Prince of Wands of both Tarot decks.

When you are "channeling" information or lost for hours  during a creative process, both of which ignore time, you are experiencing the Prince of Wands solar demeanor of fierce concentration that is inherent in all of us "Solar spirits" who came to earth to use a human creative power body!

When the Prince of Wands card is thrown:
  • A person is putting their ideas into action, under control and prepared to fight  for the survival of their ideas. 
  • There is no lust of result here, the process of creation itself is the driving joy of this person.
  • The querent has an intense focus on the all of self.

  1. As an Archetype Personality: his/her morality is swiftness and strength, with impulsiveness acting quickly to outside influences.
  2. When reacting to trifles, one can become undecided because one views them unimportant and not flamboyant enough for a heated argument, in which they not only excel but also enjoy.
  3. One's volatility demands volatile displays of opinion, even if one rarely believes "whole heartedly" in such.
  4. One just loves stating a vigorous proposition for the sake of vigor!
  5. One can argue with vehemence both sides of any question which tends to make him slow to make up their mind thoroughly on any subject.
  6. One's sense of justice is well made, but one feels that justice isn't really achieved in the intellectual world, showing a noble and generous character.
  7. Since embellishment is often vigorous, one loves to "tell tall tales" and this boasting can attain great heights, while slyly laughing internally at themselves and the listening audience.
  8. One just loves to entertain both himself and others, while not taking the world of man/authority to seriously. Thus one is often endeared to elaborate pranks, and even horrendous bouts of ridicule on some inoffensive nobody, only to give the shirt of their back to the same target, if needed.
  9. One really doesn't even take themselves to seriously----one just loves Vigorous passion!
  10. One's pride is great and one's scorn for meanness and pettiness is even greater.
  11. With fanatical endurance and massive doses of courage, one will fight the great fight against all odds and over the long haul--one will win because of their enormous capacity for work; a work which they exercise for its own sake; loving the journey more than the goal.
  12. One's haughty contempt for the world at large coexists with their profound respect for everyman and Woman, as a Star of individual and rare beauty.
  13. This type of Powerful, swift, vigorous and generous personality holds Terror for those who wish to hide amongst the herd and such a one will often incur enemies...who talk behind their back rather than face the "Lion before them". In fact many of this one's "enemies" will never have met them---but hearing about them was enough terror for the mundane.
If ill dignified, The Prince of Wands is antithesis of the above qualities, and shows great cruelty, indifference and is often sadistic  He/She will show tenancies for laziness, intolerance, prejudice all because these are qualities of the idle mind and saves the trouble of thought. They would also be a great boaster and pusillanimous of spirit.

However, such a powerful spirit is usually well dignified and with a sincere heart he works to benefit those below. They really enjoy intercourse with people, and loves to hear them laugh.
