Tarot Card Comparisons: The Hermetic Thoth Tarot-Princess of Wands & The Connolly Tarot-Page of Wands

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth PRINCESS OF WANDS.

Represents Earth of Fire ( The Plasma that matter is formed from and the fiery activity in the core of physical matter), the personification of Specific Earth (Personal Instinctual consciousness) of Primal Fire (of  Will to Force). The Rams horns on her head reminds us that in the system of Decans it is Aries that begins and ends the series.

This Princess card represents an unpredictable force of dynamic reaction in the material world and can be as a Tiger which represents a deep passion that is not controlled by rational thought; A passion I call Hard Desire.

The Princess of Wands is the fuel of fire and has been called the irresistible chemical attraction of the combustible substance. Her force of essential vigor, imposes an impression of great beauty upon her beholder.

The Fiery  golden altar represents the sacrifice of fire in the Earthly Realm of Malkuth. It's combustible nature held within the Magnetic Force of the Inferior Mother (not a value statement, rather matter is Inferior fire and/or crystalline light.) so that it is a slow consumption necessary to activate organic matter into an "alive form".

Such freed and liberated personalities represented by the Archetype-Princess of Wands, are very active and enthusiastic creators who don't fear failure or other peoples reaction to them. They become more Spirit/Fire than body ( of which we are---the body is less than 1% of our Energy-Form) and are no longer slaves to the mundane reaction to flesh and wield the flesh as a Wand of Power in the hands of a fiery-Spirit. Greater Action, without fearful reaction---is a Hard Desire of Will- To- Be. To try an block the performance of such a person is to ask for trouble. 

The Princesses and the Aces:

The Thoth Deck Ace of Wands, the Essence of the Yod- Fire given form by the Princess is shown as a fiery club (flames in shape of Yods). The Ace represents the essence or seed of the Alchemical Element-Fire; the beginning Yod of Yod Heh Vau Heh. It is a solar-phallic outburst of flame from which lightning springs forth in multiple directions. If you were looking at the Sun, it would comparable to multiple solar flares, as this is how the Sun acts as a phallus by ejecting its "seed" into the dark womb of space-time. A Yod is the Earliest stage of Primordial spiral-matter, will-less and violent, it spews into the Psyche, only to be controlled by the will of the beholder.

It is important to remember that, although the small cards are sympathetic to their numbered Sephiroth, they are not identical nor are they Divine Persons (Demiurges); they are more like sub-elements and/or parts of "Blind Forces" whose ruling intelligence are of the Realm of Yetzirah, The Formulative World (Shemhamphorasch). Hence, one whose conscious personality has claimed the Earth and lower and upper Astral (Tiphareth) as it's domain, shall rule these "blind forces".

What maybe astounding to note, if not confusing in its volume, is that each of The Four Worlds of the Hermetic Qabalah,
has its own Tree of Life and hierarchy. Obviously this requires more investigation on the students part, for each Element of the Four Hermetic Qabalistic Elements (Fire, Air,Water and Earth), also has their own hierarchy. As a Elohim Malachem who teaches, I am still investigation this phenomena.
THE PRINCESS OF WANDS: represents the Earthly part of Fire. She is the expression of the irresistible action of a combustible substance and rules from the Heavens from one quadrant around the North Pole (She=Magnetic Force). It is interesting to note, that the Female Magnetic Force gives Form to the Fiery-electric male force, which in its primeval stage, as the Ace of Wands, is unwilled, unformed and indirect.  But like the Magnetic Field of Earth, giving form to the Solar rays, not unlike the Aurora in the night sky, She justifies the direction of this male Force.The Princess of Wands therefore represents, the intelligence of Gaea that rules the internal fire of Earth.

Here Gaea-Pelé is illustrated With flames of justice leaping from her forehead, and naked, as a sign  that she is perfectly free to combine with her partner; she bears a wand crowned with the Disk of the Sun and leaping into Yod shape surging flame.

The Lords of Fire reside in the realm of Yetzirah, towards which she is leaping, thus she can be compared to the Virgin Priestess of the Lords of Fire. Further championing this fact, is the illustration of the flame topped Altar of Spring, in the left lower corner of this card. Hence, the "seed of fire", The Ace of Wands", is now given a personal willful expression in the Princess of Wands, as she is brilliant and daring fiery life. She has bridled passion, shown by grasping the Tiger by the Tail, and given it direction----where She goes--Passion goes.

Like Fire, it is her essential vigorous energy, that describes her beauty; beauty seen, as the force of her personality dazzles her beholder. Such beautiful force can also be expressed as love and anger, which is passionately charged into sudden forms of violence and implacability. Much like a Coral snake, stand back and enjoy its beauty, but don't try to posses it, as its anger is terminal.

The name Yod Heh Vau Heh, often called the Hebrew name for (Sun) God, is attributed to the Court Cards, where Yod, is attributed to Knights, Heh-to Queens, Vau is attributed to Princes and the last Heh-is attributed to Princesses, the Earthly Manifestation, as the ultimate issue of the original Energy in its Completion, i.e. crystallization. However, the Princesses also represent the counter-balancing and re-absorption of the Energy. Therefore they are also the Silence into which all things return.

The Princesses have no zodiacal attribution. Thus they are likened to "elemental" people who are recognized by their lack of all sense responsibility and whose moral qualities are very flexible. Thus they are sub-divided according to planetary predominance.
The Princesses also represent the Elemental Elohim, of such elemental persona Eli Levi wrote:" The love of the Magus for such creatures is insensate, and may destroy him."  Which it will, as lovers of the Scarlett Woman ( Crowley's-Babalon) have found out. She will consume you, as fire does a wyrm (old English), only for you to rise again as a phoenix out of the ashes of  Universal consumptive passion, and/or Divine Frenzy, as a form of  "ascended dragon".

Be very cautious young magi, (male or female) if you summon Pelé, She is spontaneous and unforgiving!  But if there is any unworthiness of the mundane world in you, the banked pure Eternal Fire in you, will rise as in a volcano, consuming the mundane; the Kundalini fire rising as a Phoenix and your Will is lost in the unshakable requited Passion's extreme heat. If your Personality lusts not for result, she'll give you wings and make you blaze as a Star, with many "magic abilities"! If your sanity doesn't return expanded from such energy harmony, then your will was flawed and your lust needed result, causing disharmony and one will be racked with emotional chaos.

Needless to say, this Elemental Persona of Magick is not for the timid! Don't mate energy fields with Salamandines, if you lust after sexual fulfillment, for mating with such consumptive energy may leave you mad with insatiable lust! Lucky for us all, calling up a Salamandine, is night impossible in this modern day, as we have forgotten the "old ways" of our magick and may Astral realms have faded from our psychic knowledge.

 As a birthday Tarot card- archetypal personality, the Princess of Wands represents a fiery nature in a  young-passionate, woman who is also consumptive and not prone to monogamy.

In its mundane form, the Princess of Wands personality represents a young person full of energy, a dancer, and an enthusiastic personality full of daring energy and optimism. A young person who has the "Tiger by the Tail", fearless in joyous change and growth. 

Now one of such fearless enthusiasm is often misunderstood, especially in the male world of the Patriarch where such a personality is viewed as a threat to the imagined stability of masculine rule. It is understood in the world of Tarot that the Princesses are  also often represented as pages (androgynous), so this could also represent a male personality, with the same influences on the material world. In essence, personalities are wombs-----magnetic containment of fiery energy consciousness, and therefore are the feminine Will to Form.

Esoterically, the Princess of Wands represents the fiery act of  Spiritual Self-Liberation where a major fear is faced and overcome releasing a vital new energy and self-awareness. When the fiery energy of passion. often called "Spirit Energy" is suppressed by the containment of Emotion produced by great fear(With containment, we think we can deny rather than deal with our inner fears) we lose a lot of vitality as most of it goes to contain the "inner tiger". We forget that a constant flow of energy is required to suppress a fear, as it is necessary to constantly focus on it emotionally to contain it, because of this concentrated focus, the suppressed energy grows exponentially; eventually erupting into a disaster.

Therefore this repressed fear, soon becomes a Pandora's box of violent nightmares, totally fed by the life force of the Psycho-dynamic creator who created them from the chaos of fear. When we finally face the demons with-in and deal with them, understanding that we made up the threat and that they are just stuffed animals instead of real Tigers, a massive release of life force floods through our bodies, healing and restoring us to our original  beauty and activity.
The Connolly Tarot, is once again depicting a mundane personality of a page. It seems the original schools of Hermetic Qabalah, feared to let the mundane know of this Fiery Psychic Vessel that is the Princess of Wands Archetype personality. It is too close to the volcanic rise of Kundalini -Spirit Fire, and therefore, deemed not for the weak of heart; a kind of "ignorance is bliss" attitude.

As did A.Crowley, I don't fear the fiery Spirit Feminine Intelligence that resides within my body, and willing let it emits it's Will to force from it's Willed form. All this Fiery power however, is launched from the solid foundation of Love. As a Hermetic Qabalist I know that,"Do what thou wilt, is the whole of the Law"; the Law is Love."

The medieval page is rather a mediocre androgynous personal, subtly ambitious, as the page is serving a knight so that they can become one in the future.The only references to a fire element and persona, are the fertile wand, the desert and the red hair of the youth.

 On the Connolly tarot card, the youth is delivering a message, therefore, the mundane meaning of this card, is one shall soon receive a message from a relative or close friend. In reverse it would tend to convey that a young person is delivering a message to the querent.

Thus, as Hermetic Qabalists, we have noted the Princess of Wands to represent during divination:
  • A personality/intelligence, that harnesses the Ace of Wands to Earth ( mate to the Solar phallus) and is volatile in nature. 
  • As a Yod- Personality, She consumes all within Her Sphere.
  • She is ambitious, aspiring and full of enthusiasm and is often accused of being irrational.
  • Being the Earthly Part of Fire, She is likened to the Polynesian Volcano Goddess, due to her Volcanic Personality.
  • She is the Earthly fiery womb, rather than the Earthly Watery Womb of the Princess of Cups. It is notable, that She has given Will to the primeval  violence of Male Force, "by naming Him Husband" using His fiery flow  to impregnate her every action, as does Earth, the Sun.
  • If the Querent is represented by this card and is male, it is the Fiery Anima (Spiritual Female within), who is delivery a message of release to him.

If the Princess of Wands is ill dignified or thrown together with the Ace of Wands:
  •  represents a young person omnivorous in passion of whatever kind, entirely reckless in the means of obtaining gratification, and insatiable.
  • A message of Passionate intent delivered by a young person to the Querent.
