Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- Prince of Swords & The Jungian Tarot-Prince of Swords: The Idealistic Son

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot- Prince of Swords, represents, The Creative Intuitive Thinker, that is in all of us. In fact, each of us has inherited the 16 Archetype personalities of the Greater Collective Self. Although we are assigned a "significator" court card, according to our birth date, we often choose to focus our action on the material plane, in anyone of these archetypes. This can be a daily, monthly, yearly or lifetime choice for each of us is a multidimensional state of conscious energy; our names are legion!
When we, as a consciousness, entertain the personality archetype known in tarot as The Prince of Swords, we have use of the personality that has newly mastered creative-intuitive thinking. We become inspired and wish not to be limited, restricted or restrained in any way.This desire to be unrestricted is shown by the two swords that the Prince of Swords  has in his hands. With the sickle and the broad sword, the  determined Prince cuts  through any thoughts, beliefs or attitudes that might reign in the movement (chariot) and/or the expression of creative-intuition thinking.
The Prince of Swords is associated with the zodiac sign of Aquarius, which is the symbol for the new age, creative, innovative, and original mind.

The inspired ideas of Aquarius are shown as the three humanoid shapes who want to be released and expressed.

The Diamond Chariot, represents  The Great Work, which is the expansion and liberation of the living from self-imposed limits. It is the "as above, so below" of inspired motion. Therefore the diamond chariot symbolizes creative energy that wants to be actively expressed and will be in a power positive way or a negative "fantasy" way; where the individual is so full of ideas, that they reduce all ideas to unreality by removing them to an ideal world of ratiocination and formality, which as such, is out of relation to any facts.
Utopian concepts come from this state of  thought.

The Thoth-The Prince of Swords represents the airy part of Air, as air is directed by "outside influences" such as the heat of passion and the coolness of pure rationale.Hence this card represents the mental activity that is comparable to the thermodynamics of Air.
Therefore, the Prince of Swords is the Archetypal personality of the intellectual, pure rational mind.

As stated, the Prince of Swords rules the zodiac from the 21st degree of Capricorn to the 20th degree of Aquarius.  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 winged intellectual children "who are flights of fancy" and may go any-which way they like; this is shown 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 seemingly 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/Spirit. Never the less, all negatives aside, 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 as often seen, if this highly intelligent personality thinks in terms of the divine, it believes it is above all others and suffers from the righteousness of an fanatic. When viewing the court cards, we must remember that they are Personality Archetypes, and that personalities are a form of "artificial intelligence", as they are conceived out of consciousness by reacting to environment. Many people call personalities "the ego", (although arguably the term ego, refers to the "whole person") which is transient and easily changed by grasping new ideas.

Since the logical process of the Prince of Swords has reduced the Air/Mind  to many diverse geometric patterns, they reduce the power of creative mind, as they have no definite purpose. This is symbolized 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.
This person is immensely powerful 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 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 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 learn discretion and discernment; a karmic necessity for us all.

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

There is however, a bright light here when Pure Mind aligned with Pure Spirit, ideas can become living images that expand and liberate the living. Pure Spirit does not reside in religion; that chaos of ideas belongs to the idiots that praise a man-made god for creating life while their fanatical ideas of greed destroy life 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 and AS US! So once again, "Above all things know thyself", is necessary here. I Am Love of Being and all around me Love is expressing itself as another way of being "Me". 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/The Divine Creative, in their own image, while the Divine Creative-makes us into It's image! Thus it is obvious, that to know God is to Know thyself!

Without the Understanding of Spirit and It's purpose for life, these personalities can become:
  • 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.
  •  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. 
  • The Prince of Sword personality easily deceives 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.

The Jungian Tarot-Prince of Swords: the Idealistic son, is shown clothed in the golden light of intellect while standing on clouds, that represent the element of mind; Air.
Such a personality is described as one who loves to love and therefore seeks refuge from the coarse and violent world by living in a inner mental world of fantasy.
Being kind and gentle he is able to find beauty where others fail to see it, such as would a poet or an artist.
The emotions of such a gullible personality are easily manipulated by others and since this personality seeks the ideal, the perfection in all things, they are easily disappointed and hurt by those who can't measure up.
Often this personality can become a recluse, as it hides to avoid confrontation, and may even become mentally ill.

Being one whose concept of self is based on reaction to others, there is a certain empathy that cannot separate itself from the emotions of others; therefore the Prince of Swords intellectual contributions are not separate from the situations he may find himself in or the people he is with.



When the Prince of Swords card is thrown, the querent:
  • Is either experiencing new Aquarian thinking which is trying to break through, or has broken through.
  • This Warrior of the Mind, may be torn between to ideals  which seem to be equal in value, but by being brave, dashing and domineering becomes committed to one of them.
  • Without commitment, this person has no staying power and is unable to communicate or finish this ideas fruition.
  • Swords are the Alchemical element of air, which can be overly mental and out of touch with emotions which may be linked to the need to travel or relocate.
