Golden Dawn description

As always red remains persistent throughout the four planes, although modified in tone. Thus we find vivid scarlet shading into deep sombre red and vermilion shot with amber. The contrasting shades of green serve to throw the red into relief. The tremendous destructive influence of the lightning, rending asunder established forms to make way for new forms to emerge, revolution as distinguished from transmutation or sublimation, the destructive as opposed to the conservative, energy attacking inertia, the impetuous ejection of those who would enclose themselves in the walls of ease and tradition.

Golden Dawn Meaning

Ambition, fighting, war, courage. Compare with Emperor. In certain combinations, destruction, danger, fall, ruin.

Magical Weapons of The Tower

Sword

This Sword is not to be confused with the Dagger or Air. It represents the active and militant energy of the magician. Its true form is the flaming sword, the lightning flash, which strikes down from Kether through the Sephiroth as a zig-zag flash. It destroys by dividing the unity of that against which its energie are directed. It is ultimately an error to identify the sword with the wand as a phallic symbol though this is often done. In the Lesser Mysteries of “John” the sword and disk represent the Wand and Cup of the Greater Mysteries of “Jesus.” In the former, John the Baptist’s head is removed by Sword (air) and presented on a charger, the platter or dish of earth. In the latter, the heart of Jesus is pierced by the Spear, the Wand of Fire, and the blood collected in the Cup or Graal (water). But the Sword and Disk are not sufficiently sacred to be truly phallic. This is one of the subtle distinctions which afford the key to the finest spiritual comprehension.
