TAROT CARD COMPARISONS: The Thoth Tarot-Prince of Wands & The Connolly Tarot- Knight of Wands

The Tarot of EliThe Princes in the Qabalistic Thoth Tarot, are the Sons of the Queen and King,  thus they are governed by Tiphareth, The Sun/Son of God. In traditional medieval art decks the Princes are called Knights.

The Princes are wholly activated by the Queen and King, adding to their complexity as they have no motive power of their own. They are force, but a stable one, as they are being pulled along in their chariots.

The Figures of the Arch Fairies (Elementals) are the Lion, Eagle, Man and Bull. These are the Four Kerubim of Hermetic Qaballah and Alchemy.  They are very ancient symbols for the elements of multiple religious belief systems, appearing as Gods of the Assyrians, the Four Animals in the Old Testament vision of Ezekiel, and they are the four symbols of the Christian Evangelists.The Kerub of fire, is shown as a Lion, which is the motivating power of the Prince of Wands.

In the vastness of Kether (Crown), the Primordial Elements radiate into Tiphareth, the Sixth Sephiroth/Beauty, becoming the united rulers of the elements that are individually expressed in Tiphareth. Anthropomorphically portrayed, the Princes are the balance of the Four Elements in Tiphareth. Being the most refined aspects of the Solar-Personality; the Four Princes are the Elemental Kings that exist in ourselves as an inheritance from The Divine Creative. As the Sons and Daughters of the Universal Divine Collective Unconscious, aka  the Divine Collective, we are given command over all elements.
It should be no surprise then, that the Princes can be taken in any direction by Divine Will or Individual Will.
  • The forces of the Prince of Wands may be applied with Justice or cruelty;
  •  The unconscious fiery motion of the Prince of Wands may be passionate and artistic; or it may be as evil as dragon fire.

When thrown during Divination, the Princes and Princesses are United as the Divine Creative in the Microcosm. The Princes often represent the coming and going of an event or person and the Princesses often represent the approval or disapproval of a matter.

is Air of Fire or Specific Air (Personal Mind) of Primal Fire (impersonal Spirit/Yod).  Hence, His emotional power is tremendous, so I attempted to show the "rocking chariot", that is being pulled by Leo (the Sun) the Lion. "Rocking" because of his enormous strength that can go any direction, even unto violence if angered.

The Thoth deck card, shows the Marital Prince holding the Phoenix Wand of Geburah, and thus wields the fiery Severity of Geburah. 
Ruling from the 21st degree of Cancer to the 20th degree of Leo, he is endowed with a powerful faculty for expanding and volatilizing. His arms are free of armor and mail, as he is vigorous and active.
As one can see, he is aflame in every way above, the rayed  crown surrounded by a winged Lion head sending from his crown a curtain of flame, suggesting the Solar Logos. In his left hand (side of the Goddess) he holds the Phoenix Wand of Power and Energy, while the other is holding the reigns of the Lion.  His sexual energy is renowned. 
 With wheels radiating flame, he rides on a sea of flame, both waved and salient.

By just looking at this Thoth Deck Card of the Hermetic Qabalah, The Prince of Wands presents a powerful 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.

The Prince Of Wands, is the Sun Warrior 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 of the Divine Creative.

The causally thrown reins over his wrist, symbolizes the inspired creativity that is not held back and is free to manifest and express itself.

The Solar Lion-Leo freely pulling the Chariot, symbolizes self trust in letting the creative process flow, without restriction nor restraint.

The contained fire in the chariot, is 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 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.
When you are "channeling" information from your "Higher Self" or lost for hours  during a creative process, you are experiencing The Prince of Wands that is inherent in all of us "Solar spirits" who came to earth to use a human creative power body!

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 the burning"!
On his chest is the sigil of To Mega Therion (Titans) 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.

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

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

The Connolly Tarot-Knight of Wands, depicts a young son of the King and Queen as a knight astride his charger.  He does seem to be rather serious, and indeed this personality can create the mental/emotions vibrations that will call for sudden decisions or changes in life.
The red gauntlets and helmet plume, represent the element of fire, while the blue sky represents the element of Air/mind.
 The wand with leaves, is representative of the fertility of this ones Passion.

During Divination The Prince of Wands implies:
  • Swiftness and Strength as his primary moral qualities.
  • Impulsive, often easily directed by outside influences, even trifling ones, he can be prey to indecision.
  •  His opinions are often violently expressed but being emphatic does not mean he'll hold the opinion long. He just loves vigorous statement just to feel the vigorous flow.
  •  The truth being, that he is often slow to make up his mind, and is essentially just and sees both sides of a question.
  • Having a character noble and generous causes him to lean towards expressing extravagant hyperbole while secretly laughing at the boast and himself for making it.
  •  Being of fanatical courage linked with indefeasible endurance he chooses to fight against the odds and always wins in the very long run.
  • The Passion radiating off of this person frightens most people because of the mystery it presents. He is of Dragon, and thus he strikes terror in the heart of the less inclined.
  •  His generosity and deeds maybe impeccable, but the heat of his passion scares the pale soul who avoids the Sun.
  • His great pride, which is his main fault, makes him hold in contempt, meanness and pettiness and he is adept at wielding every weapon of ridicule, while still giving the shirt off of his back to the one so scorned.
  • Without lust of result, he loves work and exercise for its own sake.
  • Paradoxical is his contempt for the world at large, while holding ecstatic respect for every individual man and woman.
  • The Mystery of such a one who is a Sun. This Sun Warrior is an aspect of the Solar Logos that puts ideas into action and will fight for their survival!
  • There is a sense of Romantic Revolution with this one.
  • Most people enjoy his passionate demeanor, but woe to the person that focuses his wrath.
  • Because of this Swift and agile personality, many of his acquaintances are not committed to him as friends, for his swift mystery baffles most of them as he is all that is unexpected, startling, unpredictable, unconventional, but having a deep underlying consistency.
  • Travel or departure by Air.
Because of the great energy of such a personality, many people may think his positives are negatives, However, if this card is ill defined or in reversal (The Thoth Deck does not use reversed cards as ill defined} it implies:

  •  Division and discord'
  • Quarrel
  • Unexpected change.
