Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- Queen of Wands & The B.O.T.A. Tarot-Queen of Wands

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth Tarot of the Hermetic Qabalah: Queen of Wands:

Represents the spiritual self-discoverer/ the knower of self.

"Above all things, know thyself" is the axiom of the Qabala and its' tarot cards.
This Queen card symbolizes the Specific Water in the World of Fire (Consciousness in Spirit).

The symbol of Pisces as a clasp on her chest, symbolizes the fluidity and the aspiration that is required to attain self-knowledge.

In one hand she has the fire wand, while the other rests on the head of a Leopard. The Leopard represents the extreme ferocity of Fire tamed by the Queen.She represents the Original Passion "...to be", that began Fire's form in this universe.

The pine cone on the wand tip, is a ancient symbol for Will; the Greek Thyrsus, which is a phallic symbol of Dionysus or Bacchus Liber. This sacred rod of Dionysus or Roman Bacchus, was a fennel stalk topped by a pine cone.

The female devotes, Maenads, apparently used the thyrsus like a weapon. They are often shown in vase paintings aiming the thyrsus at the genitals of their attendant satyrs, as if to strike them [Keuls, 367].  Of course, Dionysus was also shown carrying the thyrsus, which was said to turn water into wine: a standard Dionysus miracle that was latter copied by the Christians in the Gospel myth of the marriage in Cana. Therefore the Queen of Wands represents willful control of the Fiery Nature of Creation (God's Phallus); passion, intensity of purpose, and charismatic sensuality.

Hence, She is very attractive to men, as the active magnetic force that receives the fiery male electric force and controls it to create all living forms. This attractiveness of the Fiery Queen is often displayed in many ancient myths relating to Volcanoes and/or fiery mountains. Hence the Thoth card showing this Fire Queen as a mountain of a Woman. 

For example: in the islands of the Pacific, most of volcanic origin, the Great Mother herself was located in the fiery cones were she regenerated the dead in cauldrons of eternal fires.
Malekulans believed that the dead lived in volcanoes, in the eternal fires of "bliss". The Fire Goddess of Japan, Fuji, ruled the cauldron of the Mountain named after her, Mount Fuji, a place of sacred pilgrimage to this day. Many of us know of the Polynesian Goddess Pele, the Fire Goddess of Hawaii who also kept the souls of the dead in volcanic after-worlds, as did her European counterpart, the Goddess Hel of the fiery underworld; which later became the Christian underworld, that at first was not a place of punishment. The Germanic tribes said that Mother Hel was a fire mountain, and the emperor Theodoric became immortal by entering "her womb", through the passage of the Volcano cone.

Truth be told, the original Yahweh also seems to have begun as a volcano god. On Mount Sinai, where Moses was reputed to have encountered him, was the seat of the Midianite god who had formally dwelt in the Volcano Jebel-Al-Aqra, in the Midianites' earlier homeland [Walker, W.E.M.S.,133]. Yahweh, who appeared as "a pillar of  cloud by day"  and "pillar of fire by night" [Exodus 13:21-22] certainly identifies a volcano spirit. Therefore Yahweh was also identified with the local moon- god Sin, for whom Mount Sinai was named after. All in all, Fire is the element associated with the "Fiery Creative Father", whose creation of form, is controlled by the Great Mother Womb.

Binah of the Hermetic Qabalah and the Queen of Wands:
In reiteration, Binah is the Third Sephira on the Tree of Life; she is called the Sanctifying Intelligence known as Understanding.
The four Queens are another aspect of this Sanctifying Intelligence.
Seated and enthroned, the Queens represent the forces of Heh (meaning window or sight)  in the Divine Vibration of each suit.  By bringing forth a material Force of each suit, like the window in a home bring in the Sun light, the Queens, develop and realize the Force of the King.  This is a steady, unshaken and enduring force that is not as rapid in motion, as are the Princes.
 The Queen of Wands is Queen of the Thrones of Flame. Queen of the Salamanders, or Slamandrines. The astrological attribution is the last Decan of Pisces--the first two Decans of Aries.
Because the Queens are about Materialized Force, there are no Angels represented here, rather the Elementals are conscious force here.
The Queen of Wands is  Water of Fire, which would seem rather silly to mundane understanding; However, if we understood Water to be consciousness and Fire to be Primal Spirit, than this is less confusing.  This spirit-fire is Vital Life Force, sexual, passionate, extreme and often violent in Nature, as it is the Motion in the movement of all things. 
The Thoth card  shows her great control over this Primeval Fire, the Queen of Wands sits on a Throne of flames, one hand resting on a leopard and one hand holding the Wand of Fire/representing Chokmah-Wisdom who is the Qabalalistic fiery Father. Here the leopard represents the ferocity of fire under the on-hands control of the Queen.  The Wand, also a symbol of Will, indicates She is also able to direct the Force she has tamed.  This wand is also topped with a cone, hinting at the mysteries of Bacchus and the pineal gland. Those mysteries merit further study by the interested student.For the "fires of the Kundalini" are said to activate the occult power of this gland.

 As stated: In the zodiac, the Queen of Wands rules from 21st  degree of Pisces to the 20th degree of Aries and represents the mysteries of the Watery part of Fire (Conscious Passion/ Spirit). What can be simply said here, is that Fire is Spirit and the Watery part of Spirit is "spiritual intelligence" or the Conscious Spirit which is both fluid and fiery in nature while also being colored by frequency(colors are not reflections of the force--but the actual force itself) and is often mundanely called "Emotions".

If one could see the Aura and Chakras, as I do, one would know that the Human being is composed of 8 conscious-states of Energy, called auric bodies, are made of "Spiritual matter/invisible and visible light"....Solar-Conscious-energy and therefore, are an composite of "Entity" (Entity, in Physics is a "point-in-time"). They are:
  1. The Super-conscious (The Divine Collective Unconscious)
  2. The Causal body.
  3. The Mental body.
  4. The Emotional body.
  5. The Astral body.
  6. The Pranic body.
  7. The Etheric body.
  8. The Self-Conscious body (physical form).
Therefore, the Human being is a Psycho-dynamic collection of entity (body). An intelligent copy; a Microcosm of the Divine Creative's Collective Unconscious Universe that those who study metaphysics name a Macrocosm. The whole combination of 8 forms of intelligent light, both visible and invisible is called the Soul! Therefore, the human body, is also an entity of the Soul! The Queen of Wands knows this, and she is unashamed of her body, mind and spirit, in fact she revels in manifestation. Such a personality can be devastating to the "divided" who believe the body and soul are separated by a "good/bad" value system of division-ism perspective!

The Queen of Wands represents this mystery of the Maternal Solar-Mother of the Spiritual fiery forms of light that we are composed of.

Upon her head is the  winged globed-flame-rayed crown, in her left hand is the cone topped wand of Bacchanalian mysteries, the thysus, (Sacred Sensuality) and her left hand is placed on the sitting leopard. The Black Panther is (or black cat) is usually associated with the Dark Goddess, who represents the Dark Energy/Matter of quantum physics fame; However, this is the Solar Goddess, and the leopard is used to symbolize her power in repose since it is both black spotted and lion- tawny, as the lion is representative of the Sun.

Everything about this Thoth card seems to shout "fire", but if you've noticed, it is a controlled force here, as even her fiery thrown is formed in geometric shapes suggesting "controlled" or purposely directed Passions of a fiery nature.

This "birthday Tarot card" represents the character of a powerful, sexually attractive mature woman. Great Sexual energy, means great creative potential, so this person is best off, if she pores her passion into the arts and/or career. Devoting her life to bringing something of value into being. Being of Primordial Fire, this person must practice focus and willful control of her Fiery nature, or all Hell will break lose!  Oh, did I mention that the figure on the Throne is that of the Goddess Hel  who rules the underworld of deep dark emotions?  And in Mythology, the underworld is where mundane souls go to be cleansed of memories of past life and cleansed for  a ritual rebirth, as in the "rising of the Phoenix" from its own ashes....of course,on Hel's initiative.
The B.O.T.A. Queen of Wands, depicts its lady of fire as a enthroned Queen, holding the Fire wand of "As above and so below" fame while being dressed in the many colors of fire.
With royal lions, in background and on throne arms,  symbolizing the Sun and a Sun flower, showing the fertility of the Sun/Fire.
With purple mountains in the background, also showing her link with volcanoes.

As an Archetype personality the Queen of Wands would be:

  •   A red or golden haired woman who is adaptable (spontaneous) , persistent in her energy but of calm authority which she knowingly uses to enhance her attractiveness.
  • Such a woman of passion can be vane, but that is because she knows that passion is attractive in its own rite.
  • She is often kind and generous  but will not tolerate opposition.

If this card is thrown for a man:,

  • It represents the magnetic side of his nature; the anima that is committed to trusting both internal and external experiences that lead to self-knowledge.
  • Self Knowledge is represented by the radiant crown on her head.
  • There is an immense capacity for friendship and love, as that is the nature of fiery passion, however, it is always done on her own initiative where she can not be talked into it or out of it.
  • The tyrannical tendency is very present here.
When ill defined:
  • Vanity and snobbery
  • A tendency to brood, thereby, making wrong decisions that promote acting in great violence.
  • Her great passion makes her easy to deceive, causing her to react stupidly, tyrannically and obstinately.
  • One may be quick to take offense, harboring revenge without good cause.The Queen of Wands personality can be snobbish, vane, brooding which invariably leads to the negative decisions that cause her to fiercely attack.
  • Some might call this a "Fiery Latin" type of personality. Her Passion can be stunning whether it is a sexual relationship or a vendetta...so as the Leopard in her hand, she must be treated with respect, and remember that to play on Her terms, may be beyond the capacity of a less passionate mate; her wrath is "World famous". 
  • Being that She is spontaneous in nature, she may enjoy young men more than the "'older, wiser Man", and find that she is unable to apply herself to "long term" relationships.
  • Therefore this card represents lots of emotional/spiritual/physical power, but she definitely will need an "opposite" to help steady her, which because of her great reservoir of passion, balance will help her utilize her great capacity for lucid perception and steady prosecution of work; How this will only be under the guidance of a very creative mind who loves the heat and won't "burn out" under the power of her passionate . 
  • With the fiery emotions of this Queen, there is a liability of fits of depression, that can lead to Tantrums and intoxication or fiery outbursts of panic stricken burst of fury.
  • As in all powerful things, when well guided, there is great fun, joy and Bacchic- satisfaction here, but ill guided, great destruction is released. The surrounding cards in a reading will tell the able Tarot Reader what is guiding this great passionate personality and there is a whiff of Babalon (Crowley gematric-spelling) in this card by studying the "Scarlett Woman" the student will find further insight into this card. 
  • Adaptability.
  • Persistent energy
  • Calm authority that she often uses to add to her attractiveness.
  • Kind and generous to those who don't oppose her.
  • Hates opposition.
  • Powerfully  gracious in love and friendship, all of which is on her own terms.
  •  Her passionate emotion creates a Tendency to be side tracked from goals.
  • A deep desire to understand the deeper aspects of herself.
  • Hot passion and sharp wit.
