Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Prince of Swords & The Connolly Tarot Knight of Swords

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-The Prince of Swords (Knights in the Golden Dawn and Connolly decks) represents the airy part of Air, as air is directed by "outside influences" such as the heat of passion and the coolness of pure coldness, this card represents the same mental activity.

Therefore, this is the Archetypical personality of the intellectual, pure rational mind.

The Prince of Swords rules the zodiac from the 21st degree of Capricorn to the 20th degree of Aquarius. Representing an extremely fluid mental ability. 

The Thoth Prince of Swords is dressed in woven-full armor of definite device. His chariot is composed of geometric ideas. This chariot is drawn by unharnessed wing children "who are flights of fancy" and may go any-which way they like, as the reins are attached to passing geometric ideas.

The Prince of Swords can be compared to the knowledge of Euclid expounded upon by an idiot, whose argument takes any twist and turn it wants to, and yet be totally "rational". Thus the chariot is easily moved but unable to go into any definite direction---except by accident. 

Here is pure intellect without direction supplied by the Will to Force. Never the less, the Prince of Swords is crown by a Child's Head, for there is a secret Divinity here that is linked up to Tiphareth (the Son of God), but usually if this personality thinks in terms of the divine, it believes it is above all others and suffers from the righteousness of an fanatic.

Since the logical process of the Prince of Swords has reduced the Airy-Mind to many diverse geometric patterns, they reduce the power of creative mind, as they have no definite purpose. The Thoth Card symbolizes this lack of definite purpose by the Sword in his right hand (willingness to create) and in his left hand a sickle, which destroys what he immediately creates.

Being that his thoughts require no practical effort, he is purely intellectual, full of ideas that tumble over one-another in a mass of ideas unrelated to each other.  He is not simple minded, as he has all the apparatus of the Mind, intensely clever, admirably rational, thought in its highest degree, but unstable of purpose as even his own ideas are approached with his indifference. He knows that any idea is as good as another and can rationally persuade an Eskimo into buying a deep-freeze even though nature has already provided!

By removing the substance of an idea, he can place every idea into an ideal world of ratiocination. Therefore it always looks good on paper no matter how impractical it is to build!

Being that ratiocination is purely formal, even the very facts that promote his ideas are ignored so that his ideas become baseless and unreal.

Therefore this personality is immensely powerful and/or overpowering because of their unsettled principles which enable them to put forth any argument without regret or remorse; kind of like a insane-used-car salesmen from hell, who postulates the value of the saw dust in the automatic transmission of the car he's selling.

The Prince of Swords personality is glib to quote scripture, cunningly supporting any thesis without considering the fact that he supported an opposite thesis earlier in his bombast.

He is impossible to defeat in argument because any position is as good as another and ready to enter into combination with the nearest element available. He really doesn't care if his or her ideas are detrimental to life, the idea is its own purpose! His/Her momentary Vision is above all else!

These elusive and elastic personalities are only of use to the Psyche, if mastered by the Greater Will and Intellect of Spirit.  This personality must travel up the Tree of Life to the 6th Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree known as Tiphareth-Beauty which is the Divine Child in manifestation.

The Chaotic nature of Pure Mind must be controlled by the Understanding Mother of All form Binah, who is connected to the 6th Sephira by the Path of key 6-The Lovers, as Force for its own sake is utter destruction of all life.

Without the Understanding of Spirit and It's purpose for life, these personalities tend to become:
  1. Faddists, fundamentalists, fanatics, devotees of drink and drugs, humanists (those who believe that mankind is the center of the universe----all else can cease to exist.) and bible thumping theologians.
  2. But even in  such directions there is not stability, and they wander from cult to cult, vice to vice, supporting fanatical convictions for the sake of whim.
  3. It is easy to be deceived by such people as they manifest great potency of thought and are often describe as having great depth and breadth of mind. As in all readings, the surrounding cards will show the dignity of this card.

There is however, a bright light here when Pure Mind aligned with Pure Spirit, ideas can become living image. Pure Spirit does not reside in religion for that chaos of ideas belongs to the idiots that praise a man-made god for creating life while their fanatical ideas destroy it all around them. Rather the Purity of Spirit that is the Life itself, that resides as the Great Ocean of Mother/Universal Collective Unconscious that is all around, in and through us.....AS US! So once again, "Above all things know thyself", is necessary here.

I Am Love and all around me Love is expressing itself as another way of being "Me".

 Therefore in a subjective way, the Thoth Prince of Swords reminds us that we belong to each other, and not to ideas that separate us from each other. Ideas, have no purpose unless applied to the unification of  Life, for that is the Great Work of Spirit. Ideas make god in their own image, while God/The Divine Creative-makes us into It's image! Thus it is obvious, that to know The Divine Creative is to Know thyself! There really is only one Mind, as All is Mind, but it is the Mind of the Universal Collective Unconscious/ the Divine Creative, that has created ideas as Persons, so they can prove their ability to adapt, discern and prosper.

To further expound, in the zodiac, the Prince of Swords rules from 21 degrees Capricorn to 20 degrees Aquarius.
This card represents Air of Air, Specific Air of Primal Air, (personal consciousness, linked with Primal conscious) which shows an active mind that swirls all over the place.The three fairy like beings pulling this chariot are symbols of the capricious nature of the mind which can be pulled into any direction.

The Prince of Swords has both the long sharp sword of rational that invokes and creates, while in the left hand he carries the sickle of destruction that immediately destroys what is created.

Since this is a card of the Mind, there is significant Moon (Yesod) symbolism here which brings its own illusion.
In Mythology, the Prince of Swords represents Tyr, the  Norse god of battle and also Mars, the Roman god of war. Both of these personifications , represent destruction, pestilence, daring and death.
The Prince of Swords is representative of the Archetypical Tyrant- Personality who is charismatic. dominating and so impersonal that they have a great power to harm. Sharp wit but assertive to a fault. The Prince of Swords card cautions the Querent about over-rationalization.
The Connolly Tarot Knight of Swords is comparable to the Thoth Prince of Swords.

Depicted here,is a courteous young knight whose personality can be strong and overbearing. The falling leaves depict ideas in the Air of Mind. The fact that his sword is raised to the leaves, simply states his inability to hold one thought for long, as he scatters his thoughts, by changing the position of his argument, which is  shown by the jumping charger.

The Connolly Tarot Card, suggests that one stays away from this young man as he could upset your plans and cause trouble.

When signified as a personality archetype, this card represents:
  •   A young person of a turbulent  combative nature.
  • Not only is this person's mind enthusiastic, changeable with rapid switching of logic, they are also often argumentative.
  •  A very active and imaginative mind that reduces all ideas to and ideal world of ratiocination  and formality, which as such,  is without relation to known facts.
  • Usually prefers "pure mind" over emotions.
  • Esoterically,  this is the Knower, ( one who knows and hears not derision)and shows mastery of synthesis and delusion.
  •  A kind of farsighted mental view and expansion into cosmic awareness without proper empathy.
  • For the Querent, this is a card of communication.
  • The Querent has decided to be deeply committed to  acting out their own philosophical ideas in a daily lifestyle.
  • Speaking out courageously but showing a tendency to be head strong and assertive. This is where the sickle destroys the attractiveness of the created logic.
