Letters From the Thoth Tarot
Prince of Swords
Air and of air, this Prince has a lot of swift energy but it seems to be on the verge of going everywhere if he isn't careful about direction. The wee fairy people are reined but seem to be doing their own thing, so making the Prince's chariot go in a firm direction is either an accident or concentrated will. Kind of like our own minds when we have thoughts running all over the place, yes?
The Prince has a sword in one hand, creating ideas, and a sickle in the other, for cutting those ideas right down. Much like we do all the time with our own creative processes. If we have a outlet for these ideas, we can work such genius magic, otherwise, as Crowley puts it, "He is full of ideas and designs which tumble over each other... a mass of fine ideal unrelated to practical effort."
You are the ruler of your choices and it is necessary to hold all those lines of thought carefully - to take them in hand and understand them. You need to process everything until you can see things clearly. This way you can communicate your ideas to others and yourself, effectively. Inside you are great passions and visions and you are capable of organizing your life even with the difficult decision making. The key is to rein in all those ideas and focus them with clarity and organization - don't let your mind wander.
