Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth- Princess of Swords & The Babylonian Tarot-Princess of Arrows, Ninlil

The Tarot of EliTHE THOTH- PRINCESS OF SWORDS.

To the Qaballistic Tarot reader, The Princess of Swords represents Earth of Air which is the fixation of the volatile. Therefore, idea is materialized by this Personification of Force and Form which is intended to be a combination of Minerva (Goddess of Wisdom) and  Diana (Goddess of the Moon and the Hunt). This combination showing that she is both beautiful, intelligent but not entirely pleasant.

There is a similarity between the Princess of Swords and the Valkyrie of Norse mythology as well. The silver altar shows only fire-less smoke, depicting the thoughts that are blown around by  Air of Yetzirah; the currents and eddies in the Astral Air/mind.

When a described as a personality,
the Princess of Swords usually represents:
  1. A difficult child, or younger person whose inner conflicts can only be resolve by maturity and experience.
  2. A willful, obstinate, child who may also be perceptive beyond her years, thus causing a emotional conflict, that is not fully understood because of the inexperience of the child. 
  3. A young  clever, ruthless child that lacks empathy for other peoples feelings and may indiscreetly pry into the Querent's secrets.

The Norse would call The Princess of Swords Skuld who was the leader of the Valkyries. She was a battle-maid who in myth, judged and received the souls of the dead (illustration of Skuld by Peter Nicholai). She was considered a sharp minded female deity of keen judgment and high spirit but stern, and powerful. Symbolically she was seen to be trouble and possible danger.

To recap:
The Thoth Princess of Swords represents a Archetypical personality that is the Earthly part of Air. She is the fixation of the volatile. She is the visitation of Heaven on Earth and brings about the materialization of idea.

The character of the Princess of Swords is stern and revengeful not unlike the Valkyrie of the Norse, or Minerva (goddess of wisdom)  and Artemis ( goddess of the moon) of the Greek and Romans.

She is striking out with her sharp sword (or arrows) and represents the anger of the gods. 

Her logic is destructive and she is firm and aggressive, shewing clever wit, practical wisdom, and subtlety in material matters.

The empty altar on the Thoth Princess of Swords card, symbolizes profanity of the sacred, of which she cannot abide. The heavens and the clouds seem angry. 

The Princess of swords is very adroit in the settlement of controversies, exercising her sharp wit; she is the mood fighter. Therefore this card represents the need to  act upon ideas rather than just talk about them.

To her practical thinking requires that there be no difference between verbal commitment and external action. Her helmet crest is the serpent haired Medusa (Gorgon), which suggests that the personality of the Princess of Swords is not entirely pleasant.

However, she is constantly regenerating her thinking ( Thoth card-green spring colors and the butterfly wings) enabling her to see how cost effective her ideas are (coins on pedestal). But all is not selfish here, for she also considers the nourishing of others with her ideas (the mushroom shape of the pedestal) .
With this personality word and deed are aligned and woe to those who say one thing and do another!

The Babylonian Tarot, Princess of Arrows-Ninlil, basesit's art work on the Mesopotamian "lady of the wind", whowas seen as benevolent, rather than violitile. The goddess Ninlil, was also known as Mullissu, Mulliltu, and Sud, but multiplicity of names aside, she was always portrayed as the wife of the primary air god; in this case, Ellil. Thus she gained her notoriety as benevolent by intervening in the favor of the human that Ellil was angry at.  Saving many souls from damnation.

In addition to her responsibilities as air goddess, she also was considered goddess of grains; an inherited title since she was the daughter of Haia, the god of stores and Ninsebargunna, the goddess of barley.

In the story of Enlil (Ellil) and Ninlil, Enlil stumbles upon the beautiful virgin goddess bathing in a stream. Where upon he rapes her (reminiscent of the Greek story of Hades and Persephone). For justice, the young goddess goes to the assembly of gods. This obvious scandal, forced the assembly to banish Enlil to the underworld. However, Ninlil now pregnant with their son Nanna (Sin, the moon god), displays new found feelings of fondness for her exiled lover and follows him into the underworld. Enlil, is now worried that his son will be born in the underworld and therefore be unable to rule the night sky as the moon should.
To prevent this conundrum, Enlil disguises himself as three underworld guards , and impregnates Ninlil three more times, producing the three underworld gods that replace Nanna. The Moon now rises. This odd ruse of Enlil, is suggested as a way to make up to Ninlil, for his rapine, which would suggest that she enjoyed romantic sexual Masquerades. Nevertheless, she becomes Enlil's most revered wife.

In Assyria, Ninlil was known as the spouse of Ashur, who was the primary god of the empire. The Greeks called her,Mylitta ( "the one who brings birth"), which seems to be a derivative of her Assyrian name of Mulliltu. Again, just as Erra, the lion was her sacred animal, but unlike Erra, she is not prepared to fire her arrow (see previous blog).

If the reading is about the young Querent (anyone before the age of 40yrs), this card may imply that:
  • The Querent's moods are clouding mental clarity.
  • Feelings of a defensive nature that may even be aggressive and hostile.
  • However, there is a flip side to this card that shows the Mature Querent as a mood-fighter who has the ability to help others with great practical wisdom and subtlety.
  • Great adroitness at the management of practical- material affairs.
  • Very good at settling controversial issues.
  • This Personality will also take risks in thought and/or communication, daring to commit beliefs and attitudes even at the cost of personal comfort.
  • This is a bold, often rash and impulsive personality.
  • All in all, this is a curious mind which investigates and explores rational possibilities. 
The Interested student should also look up the Mythology concerning Medusa, Athena and Perseus for greater insight into the esoteric/personality archetypical meaning of The Princess of Swords.
  • The Sword and Arrow Princess card, is associated with the air sign months of Aquarius (January 21 to February 21 ) , Gemini (May21-June 21) and Libra (September 21 to October 21); which could be the querent's birth period, or those persons the querent knows who are born during those periods.
  • Since these are the months of gestation, it is important to fight your own moods and the moods of others so that you are not distracted while attending to what it is that you want to produce in areas of finance, health and relationships.
  • This card also suggests that these air sign months can be very effective months for the querent if successful in mood fighting.
