The Shadow Series, Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot 2 of Swords/Peace & The Shadow Tarot/ Vine-2 of Dark Energy at the Event Horizon

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth, 2 of Swords; Peace, is done on the subconscious level, where two issues, situations, and/or choices are integrated and the mind is now at peace. Outward signs of this mental integration shall soon be experienced. All of this is represented by the two swords piercing the blue lotus of wisdom.

The resolution that is Peace of Mind is shown as four pin-wheels which represent the four levels of mind;
  1. Emotional,
  2. Mental,
  3. Spiritual, 
  4. Physical.
If you followed my aura blog , you would know these levels as Causal Body(spiritual/causation), Mental Body (mental), Emotional Body (emotion) and Physical Body (physical). Bodies, being States of Conscious Energy.
The handles of the swords show angels  coming off of them which represents pervasive peace through the whole mental system.

The handles are also Scorpion shaped representing the Astrological sign of Scorpio; Scorpio being the sign most associated with transformation. This is a transformational peace of mind that establishes a vivid peace of mind.

Astrologically, the Two of Swords  is Moon in Libra which is symbolized by the two small swords, the one at the top holds a crescent moon, while the one at the bottom  holds the sign of Libra. The moon represents a deep subconscious generation of peace (being signified by the sign of Libra) that goes  to a spiritual place (yellow color of the card) and is a regenerative and renewing peace as shown by the green on the card.
The Principle to all systems and the Universal Pattern which is Chokmah, the Second Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, Wisdom, may be considered the Real or the beginning of what is real. Sure there is Kether, The One, but Kether is potential "I" while Chokmah is an active "I".

The Kether, the Crown, is an observer, often called the "All Seeing eye", but this "I" is not a participant, it just observers and if you have reached deep inner meditations, you have met this Observer, occupying the deep silence.

Therefore, Kether, the First Motion of Intellect, is never interfering but always observing.

Chokmah, Wisdom, is active and participates and in fact, the union of Chokmah (Wisdom) and Binah (Understanding) is the "I AM", from which all else is formed.
 
The Twos generally imply the initiation and fecundation of a thing.

THE THOTH- 2 OF SWORDS-PEACE:
is also often 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. 
 Swords are the element of Air, attributed to Mind, which can be more often than not 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 Sophia (shown is the Gnostic illustration) 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.

The Moon 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 of light. 
The Shadow Tarot Card,Vine, 2 of Dark Energy at the Event Horizon, promotes the Nightside as the
Demon Vine.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia In demonologyVine is an Earl and also a King of Hell, commanding 36 legions of demons. He can tell present, past and future, discover witches and hidden things, create storms and make the water rough by means of them, bring down walls and build towers.

This demon is portrayed as a lion holding a snake in his hand and riding a black horse.The etymology of his name seems to be the Latin word 'vinea', vine, that is also the name given to an ancient war machine made of wood and covered with leather and branches, used to overthrow walls.Other spellings: Viné, Vinea.See also[edit]Occult portal
Sources[edit]

I do think I have ran into some Demon Vines when I was gardening, we call them black berry vines in my neck of the woods. However, this is another example of Christian Demonology, using a Latin word, to describe a imagined King of Hell,  of which there seems to be many. Like I said, hell must be a big planet.

We know this to be a Monk's invention, simply because Lions don't ride horses or hold snakes. Plus "to discover witches", is the very misogynistic terminology of Christianity. Witch comes from the Anglo-Saxon and means "wise woman", so this could be the tie with the Thoth 2 of Swords, which represents the Truly Wise Woman, The Goddess Sophia.  That being said, The Shadow Tarot may be used just as Thoth cards, giving one  with darker tastes, a colorful card.

When the Thoth 2 of Swords/Peace card is thrown, the querent maybe said to be experiencing:
  •   Anew philosophy of life or lifestyle by identifying and/or affirming a new belief, opinion, schedule, or communication.
  • In other words, making peace with ones- self.
  • There also maybe a tendency to procrastinate, and waiting for the tide to turn.This is a temporary balance of compromise.
  • How the rest of the reading is thrown will often dictated if this is a deep inner realization of peace or a temporary one. 
  • As always, the entire layout of the cards, be it Celtic or otherwise, dictates the meaning of the individual cards in their positions.
  • Peace of Mind.
  • Two issues, relationships, choices or situations have been or are being integrated at a subconscious level...soon to be experienced outwardly.
  • A temporary balance and feeling of release from captivity
  • Affirming a new belief or lifestyle, expanding opinions and communication.
  • A necessary respite before a change in an attempt to gain a mental balance.
  • Conflict at an impasse a stalemate of balanced forces.
  • Making peace and suspending judgment .
  • Blocked emotions due to compromise not accepting realities and the need to be tolerant towards others..
