Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot-Princess of Swords & The Jungian Tarot- Princess of Swords: The Controlling Daughter

The Tarot of EliTo really understand the Princesses one must understand the Aces.

The Thoth Deck Ace of Swords, represents the Root of  the Element of Air which is also representative of the Seed of Consciousness. When lacking the Will that is Spirit, consciousness behave like Air,  which blows which ever way of the common current. In nature, air lacks the concentrated will of fire to unite with water and it lacks a corresponding passion to unite with its twin, earth. Air has no self-generated impulse, and is totally dependent on the heat or cold of the moment.  But when set in motion by its Father-Fire and its Mother-Water, it magnifies their power into something horrific, such as tornadoes or hurricanes, or the Princess of Swords.  Wind in this state, is comparable to Consciousness focused by Will, as all embracing, all penetrating, all wandering and all consuming.

The Status of Alchemical Air, as compared to the other Elements of alchemical origin, would seem minor but in reality, Air is the first Element to follow Spirit. Spirit is of the Element- Fire, that begins with the Logos (Word of God). Air is also attributed to Mercury and most properly, the Breath of Life. Then there is the Hebrew statement," Achath Ruach Elohim Chiim (777) which means," One is the Spirit (not air) of the Gods of the Living". In this case air represents the the medium that carries the Spirit of "the gods of the living" which is called Prana in Sanskrit; thus we can see the empowerment of yoga breathing exercises. 
When thrown during a reading, the Ace of Swords is an Invoked force for good or evil. It represents the whirling force and strength through trouble. It can be the Sword of Wrath upholding Divine Authority and thus an affirmation of justice in the querent's life.

THE THOTH PRINCESS OF SWORDS, represents the earthly part of Air. She is the fixation of the Volatile. She therefore represents the influence of Heaven on Earth and brings about the materialization of idea.

There is some suggestion of the Valkyrie, in this card but She also represents Artemis and characteristics of Minerva. To some extent, she represents the anger of the gods, and wears a helm of  serpent crest, that symbolizes the serpent-haired Medusa. The heavens and clouds whirl about angrily, while she is stabbing downward with her sword. In the back ground is a profaned altar, whose fire is gone out due to lack of attention which seems to anger this Valkyrie.

Since Princesses are the "throne of Spirit", the Princess of Swords has the option of "throwing everything overboard" and/or "blowing everything sky high." The Character of this personality archetype, is stern,  and revengeful. Her logic is destructive, as she is both firm and aggressive. She also shows great practical wisdom in material things. Being adroit at controversy, when affairs are controversial in nature she shows great cleverness and dexterity in the practical management of these affairs.

 As stated, 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 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 Thoth card depicts an empty altar that 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 or wander about in a cloud of depression.

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 (green spring colors and the butterfly wings) to she 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 Jungian Tarot-Princess of Swords: The Controlling Daughter, pretty much states the same character traits as the Thoth Card of the Hermetic Qabalah. However, Robert Wang depicts her as less of a active threat than the Thoth card. On the Jungian Tarot, one may see some one who is on guard but not aggressively fighting moods.  The color of her closes are that which is attributed to air, as are the clouds she is standing on.
She is more of an orderly young woman, whose feelings are under firm control; thereby she takes very few chances in personal relationships.

Be cautious, prudent and often selfish, one would think her lonely, but that is not the case as this personality type is often well-liked and successful at whatever she attempts.
She is a power seeker who believes the "end justifies the means" and is not above unethical or even illegal endeavors. She is an artful manipulator of others, but not obvious in doing so. Always considered a team player, she is in fact loyal only to the highest bidder making her an excellent executive for a large corporation.
As most of us know, she may appear arrogant, and tough as nails, but this is a protective mask. She really is an intelligent and sensitive young woman who cannot afford to allow a potential adversary knowledge of her thoughts.


When the Princess of Swords card is thrown during a reading, it may represent:
  • A young woman with brown hair and blue eyes who shows great wisdom, strength, acuteness, subtle-ness in material things.
  •  She is graceful and has great dexterity.
  • The Princess of Swords 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) or those persons the querent knows who are born during those periods. Since these are the months of gestation, it is important for the querent to fight their own moods and not react to the moods of others so that the querent is not distracted while attending to what it is that one wants 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.
If ill dignified:
  • She is both frivolous and cunning.
  • Often she becomes incoherent as all her talents tend to combine forming a species of low cunning. This produces a kind of  mental slowness  and her mind becomes the prey of constant anxiety, crushed by every kind of responsibility, especially in family affairs. 
  • She is either a mood fighter or defensive to the point of rash decisions.
