I. Analyze and describe the of Princess of Swords Thoth Tarot
This card represents the aim of an unreasonable assertion of women’s power and the Earth aspect of the Air element, “the appearance and congestion of the unstable things” (Crowley). This young and powerful energy source, embodied through the energetic movement of the arm, is very reckless and hasty. At the same time, it expresses innocence and ignorance, when compared to childishness corresponding to unconscious desires rather than conscious will, they actually mean to cover a large part of real goals rather than our thoughts.
Crowley wrote: “She stood in front of the simple altar as if she wanted to take revenge on contempt and blasphemy and she stabbed the sword”. This external attitude is an expression of conflict with the altar itself, the symbol of wisdom, patience, and maturity of the soul, and in general, symbolizing the development of mental qualities from all desires for revenge. Her aggressive posture is the representation of an Amazon warrior (daughter of the arena), the sky and clouds are full of anger, and on top, she wears a protective helmet with snakeheads – Medusa.
She, therefore, will represent intense impulsivity, and similarly, will represent a spontaneous reaction, expressing herself directly to the world, the “inner child” perceiving the world through the right hemisphere (unconscious); This impetus will reinforce the rich knowledge to not only react to the surrounding environment but also directly impact them.
Princess is a symbol of the aspiration to act or turn all ideas into reality, she represents the will to act in a pure and primitive way. In Greek mythology, we find this energy personified in the Amazon female tribe that the two Queen Penthesilea, the daughter of Ares and Otrera, fell into Achilles’ hands; in the Western Norse mythology, it is Valkyries, the Teutonic battle between virgin girls, who participated in the battle, won the victory and chose warriors to destroy.

In terms of cognition, we tend to be toward the slow and the hustle, provocation and intense aggression. We attract contradictory situations in which we are attacked and troubled by our existing thinking habits and intellectual visions.

In terms of this aspect, the card means that we must prepare for conflicts, animosity, discord and possibly even writing battle. With this context, it can show the beginning of the process of ending our current work. And it can also signify the fresh and cold wind that blows away the problems in space and brings the freshness of our work environment.
