The celestial attribution of the Two of Swords, is the Moon in Libra; the Moon is change, but Nature is inherently peaceful which enhances the balancing nature of Libra.
Overall, one would think of the disruption of Chokma (# 2 Sephira- Wisdom) in the suit of Air (Swords); Air being a suit born from the conflict of Water and Fire in marriage. Air/Swords is subject to change as no other suit, not only from the fire/water parentage but also when Earth appears the suit becomes crystallized .
In the Thoth Deck, the Two of Swords, shows two Swords of equal strength, crossed; they are combine by a 5 petal blue rose. The Blue Rose represents the Gnostic Sophia, and the Qabalistic Chokma) the Great Mother of Wisdom (Female aspect of Chokma), whose harmonizing influence, plus that of Libra, compounds the latent antagonism of the Suit of Swords. The pinwheel shaped white rays, are in a geometrical pattern that emphasizes the harmonic equilibrium of the 2. Peace is about the best word to describe this harmonic.
The Erotic Tarot of Milo Manara, the acclaimed Italian Artist, depicts an actress balancing, in her hand, a golden award, not unlike the Oscar, but with a hat and a red scarf around its neck. This is obviously a redecorating of the Oscar award and displays the Manara meaning of choice,balance and ideas. Air is the element of Mind, thus the wind blown red scarf.
The astrological meaning applied to the 2 of Air, is the Moon in Libra, implying,the need to bring about change in a harmonious, united and sociable way. The act of an actress achieving an award, for her excellent performance in society and the fact she redecorates it seems to be the act of union (she must be voted by majority to win), and it is balanced by her need to express herself in a sociable way. Very subtle, is this Milo Manara card.
