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.
