Daughter of fire
Analyze and describe the Princess of Wands Thoth Tarot
The image of the woman on the card portrays the passion of fire as a manifestation of the rushing and youthful love. She was completely naked and danced in wavy flames which its form reminded of Yod. The fire symbolizes the outbursts of men’s hearts, and her nudity is the embodiment of sexual desire. Her sincerity, though, still had conflicts; wherever she went, she also destabilized, causing people to pay attention and provoking a chaotic passion without having an emotional commitment.
Her oversized hat (Crowley talked about “justice feathers fluttering like flames emanating from her eyebrows”) symbolizes internal contradictions: the inability to the real exchange hidden behind intense sexual desire. This is reflected in the image of a passionate and soft tiger like a cat, as well as a separation of instinctive tendencies from emotional life.
In psychology, she is the embodiment of the principle of sexual pleasure: the spontaneous and innocent motivation that paves the way for instinctive tendencies without caring about emotions. She is greedy and careless in choosing ways to achieve her will; this requires a skilled partner. She was adept at igniting emotions and surrounding it with intense enthusiasm, at least, until a new love appeared so that old love will be quickly removed.
Her type of emotional development is similar to the tension of the temperature curve. She was an enthusiastic priest blowing up the fire on the golden altar of sexual desire (sheep head) and despite the energy burning with a wand of sun.
In this erratic woman, we encounter a fire that is unstable, uncontrollable, introverted or light of inner emotions that are devastating, difficult to detect and uncontrollable. She is the symbol of the beautiful Helen, daughter of Zeus – the God of Greek mythology, and is Leda – Menelaus’s wife, kidnapped by Paris, causing the Trojan war. Her charismatic beauty combined with eroticism like a magnet makes anyone falls in love.
However, she also expressed many things other than feminine attractiveness; she is the embodiment of the hypnotic power of feminine instincts related to intrinsic inability and unable to have a true attachment. Helen is the minimalist human image of the model Goddess Aphrodite, acting from provocative looks without commitment – but only for the purpose of undying burning flames. (*)
