The Two of Swords is called PEACE in the Thoth Deck. The two's are ruled by
Principle to all systems and the Universal Pattern which is Chokmah-Wisdom,
who may be considered the Real.
Sure there is Kether, the One, but
Kether is potential "I" while Chokmah is an active "I", the first real functioning I-dentity. The Crown that is Kether is an
"observer," or the "dark energy" identity, often called the "All Seeing eye"; but this "I" is not a
participant...It just permeates and observers. If during deep meditations, you may have met this Observer, as a sense of Self occupying the deep silence.
Never interfering but always observing as a permeating sight.
Chokmah is active flow of Force (Will to Force-Phallus) and in fact, the union of Chokmah (Wisdom) and Binah
(Understanding-Womb) is the "I AM". from which all else is formed.
The Twos generally imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing.
THE Thoth TWO OF SWORDS-PEACE: is also called the Lord of Peace Restored.
Here the Moon is in Libra and Chokmah is influencing the Astral World
of Yetzirah. The Angels of the Decan Yealel and Mehahel.
are the element of Air, attributed to Mind, which can be more often
than not, in turmoil, negative and destructive. In the Two of Swords this
destructive nature is balanced by Chokmah and Libra incurring a
benevolent nature and a positive card. Here the normally clashing
swords, are held together by the Blue five petaled Rose of the Greek Goddess of Wisdom-Sophia which
is a symbol for Wisdom and showing the benign influence of the Mother. The affirmation of balance is the cross of light made of pin wheel like
forms that imply a balance of active energy. Chokmah a Hebrew feminine noun, being phallic, may seem counter-intuitive as a "Goddess of Wisdom"; However, when the Womb of active identity actively expresses force, it is masculine in nature. Whereas, Binah-understanding who is "will to form", is receptive to force and thus female in nature. Therefore, this union of Chokma and Binah, is often shown as two inseparable human forms in sexual dance, depicting the tension of motion and balance.
in Libra changes the Moon activity from erratic change to that of
subtlety, grace and compromise. Thus, in divination the Two of Swords
represents a quarrel made up and arranged, restoring peace. However,
this maybe somewhat tenuous, as the peaceful nature is under the
tension of motion which is also implied by the swirling pinwheel forms
The Spiral Tarot depiction of the Two of Swords, emphasizes the Libra influence that is balancing the destructive nature of the two swords held in the tight-rope-walker. The agile Woman is the perfect depiction of subtlety, grace and compromise as she is holding the two swords together over her heart; as if she is the Blue Rose of Sophia on the Thoth card. The Moon in Libra, which is the planet and astrological sign attributed to this card, is also seen as a crescent in the night sky. The lady on the wire is a perfect balance of active energy, showing a clear head solving the issues at hand. Peace requires at least two agreeable parties. In this case, the Lady and wire are at peace and are joined in agreement against the issue of gravity.
