Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot : PRINCESS OF SWORDS & The B.O.T.A. Tarot: PAGE OF SWORDS

The Tarot of EliTHE THOTH- PRINCESS OF SWORDS.

To the Qaballist, The Princess of Swords represents Earth of Air which is the fixation of the volatile. Thus, idea is materialized by this Personification of Force and Form which is intended to be a combination of Minerva (Goddess of Wisdom) and  Diana (Goddess of the Moon and the Hunt). This combination showing that she is both beautiful, intelligent but not entirely pleasant.

There is a similarity between the Princess of Swords and the Valkyrie of Norse mythology as well. The silver altar shows only fire-less smoke, depicting the thoughts that are blown around by  Air of Yetzirah; the currents and eddies in the Astral Air/mind.

The Norse would call The Princess of Swords Skuld who was the leader of the Valkyries. She was a battle-maid who in myth, judged and received the souls of the dead. She was considered.  A sharp minded female deity of keen judgment and high spirit but stern, and powerful. Symbolically she was also seen to be trouble and possible danger.
Therefore the Thoth Princess of Swords represents a Archetypal personality that is the Earthly part of Air. She is the fixation of the volatile passion. She is the visitation of Heaven on Earth and brings about the materialization of idea.

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 empty altar on the Thoth Card 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. 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 archetype word and deed are aligned and woe to those who say one thing and do another!
This 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.  If your birthday falls from January-10 to February 8th, and you are less than 40yrs old, your Tarot significator card is the  Princess of Swords. Being this personality archetype, it is important to fight your own moods and ignore the moods of others so that you are not distracted while attending to what it is that you want to produce in areas of finance, health and relationships. This card also suggests that the air sign months can be very effective months for the querent if successful in mood fighting.
With Her Sword of "volatile Mind" she cleaves away the dross, so the pure essence is seen as a materialization of Idea.

To reiterate,The Princess of Swords and the Valkyrie, represent the influence of Heaven on Earth. There is a representation of the "Anger of the Gods" here, for she wears a helm reminiscent of a Medusa headdress. She stands in front of a barren altar, as if to avenge its profanation (The Human Soul is the altar; the profanation is "indoctrinated personality of the slave-culture"), as shown by her sword stabbing downward. All around her angry storms rage in the sky. To some, such personalities appear to be "Children of Misfortune", which seems to be the most unhappy of people. However, their Soul knows what it is doing, and sharp edged thinking is needed to "cut away the dross" so that the real beauty can be revealed.

The B.0.T.A. Tarot: PAGE OF SWORDS,
depicts the traditional medieval art of a androgynous page, who attends the Knights. In the Thoth Tarot, this is the Princess who weds the Prince.
The Earth of Air elemental assignation of this card is shown by the green earth, the blowing clouds, wind blown trees and the yellow colors of the page's ensemble.
The feather in the hat, symbolizes the serpent force and/or the many vibrations of the volatile mind of the Gorgon.
The Sword is presented in a defensive manner, which depicts the defensive nature of this mood fighter.
The Archetype personality of the Princess/Page of Swords:
  1. Is of a stern and revengeful nature.
  2. She/he is firm, aggressive and wields destructive logic with great practical wisdom and subtlety in material things.
  3. Her/his natural cleverness and adroitness in managing controversial affairs makes her a master of settling controversies.
  4. She/he would be a good ambassador.
  5. People thus characterized, may seem slow mentally, crushed by every responsibility, especially when it comes to family affairs.
  6. We must remember that the Princesses represent the "Throne of Spirit", and that the Princess of Swords has the option of "blowing everything sky high", she is a personality and therefore can  also be manifest in a young male, but either her or she, this one has that potency of mind that is volatile.
When personified as an acquaintance, the Princess of Swords usually represents:
  •  A difficult child, or younger person whose inner conflicts can only be resolve by maturity and experience.
  • A willful, obstinate, child who may also be perceptive beyond her years, thus causing a emotional conflict, that is not fully understood because of the inexperience of the child. 
  • A young  clever, ruthless child that lacks empathy for other peoples feelings and may indiscreetly pry into the Querent's secrets.

If the reading is about the Querent, this card may show that:
  • The Querent's moods are clouding mental clarity.
  • Feelings of a defensive nature that may even be aggressive and hostile.
  • However, there is a flip side to this card that shows the Mature Querent as a mood-fighter who has the ability to help others with great practical wisdom and subtlety.
  • Great adroitness at the management of practical- material affairs.
  • Very good at settling controversial issues.
  • This Personality will also take risks in thought and/or communication, daring to commit beliefs and attitudes even at the cost of personal comfort.
  • This is a bold, often rash and impulsive personality.
  • All in all, this is a curious mind which investigates and explores rational possibilities.

 
If ill dignified her qualities:
  • Are dispersed, she becomes incoherent, and all her gifts form into a animal cleverness, a low cunning, that is unworthy of the means.
