The Princess of Swords is “earth of air” – where the sylph like energy solidifies. Crowley speaks about her bringing about “the materialization of Idea.”
Wisdom, strength, acuteness; subtlety in material things: grace and dexterity. If ill dignified, she is frivolous and cunning.
DuQuette says that she reveals everything that is inherent, but hidden, in the suit’s Ace.
This card turned up in last evening’s three-card reading, and I mentioned that she could represent a new idea or the opportunity to learn something new.
She is the punctuation mark at the end of a week that included nothing but fiery Wands energy, and the lone Major Arcana of the Fool. For me, at this time, I believe that she is a signal to focus my mind on some specific spiritual practices and creative projects that have been in the background for awhile as I concentrated on the study of this deck, and related subjects.
