Princess of Swords
„sharp clarity of the mind“
exciting ideas, translating the will into action, honesty
Earth through Yetzirah
The princess of swords knows how to materialize her ideas. Her clarity of mind helps her to achieve her goals.
Swiftly she adepts to her surroundings and is able to strike away her own illusions and those of others. Her honesty and frankness may either impress or affront the people around her. She feels no need to sugar coat her speech or her actions, which can be perceived as harshness.
Cunningly she fights her way through obstacles, rather by creativity and imaginativeness then force.
Her straight forward archetype is all about fixing the volatile mind.
This princess knows what she wants and is able to defend what she has already achieved. If someone would attack her, she may get angry and use her sharpness to make a fool of her opponent. If there is a problem, it is better to approach her with positive critique, which she may be able to accept better then a direct confrontation.
She stands stable on cubes, which represent the physical world. Therefore she is routed deep within her life but yet able to act spontaneously. In her negative aspect she can appear to be heartless but sensual nevertheless, because she knows how to use here physical features. Working well together with the body and mind is her main feature, which the horizontal waves would indicate. Her curiosity and flexibility can help in deadlocked situations.
There are waves emerging from the swords which means that her actions will spread into the world and may also inspire others to do the same. She can be a muse or a trigger-person for people who can’t transcend their daily routines. The mind is often our greatest enemy. This is why she may be perceived as a role model on how to converse thoughts into actions, mind into matter or will into achievements. This archetype may also attract enviers who can’t master these transitions themselves or are conservative by nature.
Martial arts or other sports which include both, mind and action can help sharpening her focus even more.
However, she must beware of burning out in her dance, which can lead to mania and obsession. Taking a rest between the actions and bewaring of acting too fast would be advised. Anger and frustration can be warning signs that she is near to her own collapse.
Working slowly and steady is the key to mastering this highly active archetype.
