The Knights in the Thoth Tarot, are the Warrior Kings; However, in the Tarot of the Old Path, the Knights occupy the position of the Thoth Tarot- Princes.
The Tarot of The Old Path- Knight of Rods, is depicted as a battle ready and somewhat restless man of fair hair and blue eyes.
His rod is a branch of white willow and upon his helmet is an oak leaf design, both signifying bravery.
His clothing is in fiery colors, representing the element of fire that is attributed to this card.
Hence the depiction of this card seems to suggest an fiercely energetic, restless person who is not ready to settle down.
THOTH TAROT- PRINCES & TIPHARETH (BEAUTY):
The Qabalistic Thoth Princes are the Sons of the Queen and King, thus they are governed by the 6th Sephiroth- Tiphareth, The Sun/Son of God and /or the Soul.
The Princes are wholly activated by the Queen and King, as the Soul is totally activated by Binah- 3 Sephiroth-Understanding and Chokmah, the second Sephiroth- Wisdom, adding to their complexity as they have no motive power of their own. They are force, but a stable one, as they are being pulled along in their chariots.
The Figures of the "Arch Fairies" (Elementals) are the Lion, Eagle, Man and Bull. These are the Four Kerubim of Hermetic Qaballah and Alchemy. They are very ancient symbols for the elements of multiple religious belief systems, appearing as Gods of the Assyrians, the Four Animals in the Old Testament vision of Ezekiel, and they are the four symbols of the Christian Evangelists.On the Thoth Tarot Prince of Wands, has a chariot pulled along by the astrological sign of Leo; The lion also being the symbol for Fire and/or the Sun.
In the vastness of Kether (Crown), the Primordial Elements radiate into Tiphareth, becoming the united rulers of the elements that are individually expressed in Tiphareth. Anthropomorphically portrayed, the Princes are the balance of the Four Elements in Tiphareth. Being the most refined aspects of the Solar-Personality; the Four Princes are the Elemental Kings in our Souls.
It should be no surprise then, that the Princes can be taken in any direction by Divine Will.
The rational mental activities of the Prince of Swords, may produce ideas that are either creative or destructive;
THE PRINCE OF WANDS:
is Air of Fire or Specific Air of Primal Fire. His sexual power is tremendous, because of this enormous strength, one can go any sexual direction, even unto violence if angered.
The Thoth deck card, shows the Marital Prince holding the Phoenix Wand of Geburah, and thus, wields the fiery Severity of Geburah's power of resurrection.
Ruling from the 21st degree of Cancer to the 20th degree of Leo, he is endowed with a powerful faculty for expanding and volatilizing. His arms are free of armor and mail, as he is vigorous and active.
As one can see, he is aflame in every way above, the rayed crown surrounded by a winged Lion head sending from his crown a curtain of flame, suggesting the Solar Logos. In his left hand (side of the Goddess) he holds the Phoenix Wand of Power and Energy, while the other is holding the reigns of the Lion .
With wheels radiating flame, he rides on a sea of flame, both waved and salient.
The Prince of Wands or Knight of Rods, is a personality archetype. Hence, by using the Tarot-Astrological wheel, one can find the "core" Persona that is the foundation of their own personality. We may use Princes and Princesses to describe the core persona's; However, this is not the "sex of a person", unless describing a coming or going of a person, but rather the active paradigm of the personality. When thrown during Divination, the Princes often represent the coming and going of an event or person and the Princesses often represent the approval or disapproval of a matter.
During Divination The Prince of Wands implies:
Because of the great energy of such a personality, many people may think his positives are negatives; However, if this card is ill defined or in reversal (The Thoth Tarot does not use reversed cards as ill defined} it implies:
