A Walk Through the Thoth Tarot
Princess of Swords
Earth of Air, this Princess looks like she is flying out of the earth into the sky, leaving her dust behind. Her character is stern and revengeful. Her logic is destructive. She is firm and aggressive, with great practical wisdom and subtlety in material things. She is a warrior princess who is here to help us battle the Ruach.
Swords = Ruach (intellect) and it can be a good thing in that we rise above our lower animal natures. BUT! When we identify with the Ruach we separate from our higher parts, higher consciousness - those the Ruach can't comprehend and it wants us to stay with it. So this Princess helps us remember that the mind can be an enemy if we aren't aware of what it is up to.
