Thoth Deck Tarot: TWO OF SWORDS- Peace

Swords represent the often unruly element of Air. The Two of Swords-Peace, is ruled by Chokmah (Wisdom), a fiery emery state of Conscious, We all know what heat and air combined can do on Earth. From nice breezes to horrifying tornadoes and hurricanes, heat and air combine to make weather that can change with little notice. Thus this suite of swords, which governs all intellectual manifestations (Mind over matter) is at best always complicated and at least disordered. Even thought this is the best balanced of the Swords suit, it is also paradoxical and subject to change more than any other suit.
The Two of Swords zodiacal attribution is the Moon in Libra. This balances the changing nature of the Moon.  This allows the energy of the suit (Chokmah) to abide the onslaught of  disruption and maintain a comparative calm that is unusual to the suit of air.
The Two of Swords of the Thoth Deck has two swords crossed, emphasizing peace after conflict with a blue five petaled Rose in the Center that represents the harmonizing influence of the Mother. The Rose produces white rays that produce geometric symbols of equilibrium. The Wisdom of the Blue Sophia (Gnostic Greek name of the Goddess Mother---later became the Blue Madonna of the Christian sects.) dispels the antagonism and all is a strained peace for the moment. This is a card of quarrels made up and arranged, Peace under tension. Action unselfish and sometimes selfish.  Strength through suffering, pleasure after pain. Sacrifice and trouble. Peace restored through arrangement of differences----all of which denote the  contradictory nature of this card. It is Justice and injustice, truth and untruth, sorrow and sympathy, all balancing each other in a state of peace and tension in relationship.
If ill dignified, this card represents an inclination to repartition of affronts if once pardoned, of asking shallow and valueless questions. Want of tack, and often doing injury when meaning well. Talkative. Like I said in the beginning a card of Peace through conflict.
  Because of the very nature of the Sword Suit, a Card reader must pay particular attention to the surrounding cards in a reading and allow intuition to play a major part in the interpretation. We must remember that the Mind is a place of Fantasy where theory becomes fact by belief rather than proof made manifest.
Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper!

Hi! Firstly, thank you so much for your blog, Ive been using it for reference constantly since I discovered it. Your understanding of the Thoth deck is so multifaceted and incredibly helpful :D I have a question for you if you have time: In a three card spread with clarifying cards, I pulled the 8 of swords as my final outcome with Peace modifying it. For context, it was a general read about what I need to know for my path. What do you reckon? I know you said to pay careful attention to surrounding cards, and I have a difficult time seeing the relationships between cards (I still consider myself a novice at tarot). Even if you don't answer, thank you so much! I can think of several cards for which I have a fundamentally better understanding of because of your blog. Live long and prosper! \\ //

Thank you Catherine for your supportive comments. The Eight of Swords implies interference, which means a lack of persistence in matters of Intellect and contest. The Two of Swords, Peace, means handling a problem or situation by denying it, not facing it. A contest of equal strength. You Path is to "face all that makes you uncomfortable' by accepting it rather than denying it in an attempt to not risk comfort zones. Your Path would seem to be the Moon...the Path of Qoph THE PATH OF DECEPTIVE EFFECT OF APPARENT POWER OF MATERIAL FORCES. a very powerful path that can confer"bewitchment's and casting illusions".

Hello. First things first, thank you for the detailed and interesting explanations of this card. I would sincerely like to hear your comment on my case, when you have the time: So, for the last 3 months I have been having my luckiest time in my whole life. Almost everything I demanded were granted, and now I am really having good time. I begin feeling so extremely lucky that I begin suspecting that some disastrous times are awaiting me. So I talked about this to my friend the other day, and he brought up the thoth deck. The first card I picked was this one, two of swords: peace. The next one was Lust, and the last one was The Princess of Wands. My friend told me that nothing wrong seems likely to happen, but maybe I should watch out for the princess of wands. So, what do you think? What is your interpretation?

First, the position of the cards on the pattern of the reading is most important. Second, you seem to have just picked three cards, thus giving you very little info, and that's not good. A little knowledge is dangerous to act on! You need a ritual pattern, such as the Celtic Cross or the 15 card Golden Dawn spread to really be able to see the choices, and what is happening where and when. Email me for a real reading, via Skype, and I'll be able to really answer your question. The Princess of Wands, without position just states "Hot Passion" and nothing else. Thank you for your comments and interest. May you live long and prosper.

I keep coming up with the two of swords in the advice position of my spread in regards to how I should go about reconciling my husband who I am now separated from and have been at odds with. In this position would the advice be to act or not act? I've decided to withdraw from him in order to heal and also avoid being manipulated by him through friends or social media. I get confused with this card. Is it saying to withdraw and be passive, or is it saying to act out in the name of peace such as reaching out to him and declaring peace? My modifying card is the Prince of Cups.

Hi Devin. I don't interpret other peoples readings in the blog. I do that professionally and have a button for that in my Price page of my website. However, Peace at your present situation can be the interpretation of the 2 of Swords. Swords are the Notorious "death suit", so this isn't about making up, it's more about be at peace breaking up. For real info, go to my website and follow the instructions for sending me your complete reading and I will gladly email your interpretation back to you. Better yet, purchase a reading from me, live on video, and we'll get to the real meat of this situation. Thank you for your interest and comments. May you live long and prosper.
