Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth -2 of Swords- Peace & The Babylonian Tarot -2 of Arrows-Peace Restored

The Tarot of EliThe Thoth-THE TWO OF SWORDS: Peace

A quarrel made up and arranged, the restoration of peace.
Moon in Libra.

The Moon is a very changeable and erratic planet but assumes a stability in Libra making this is a tenuous situation. For now, it is stable---often only because of compromise. Once compromise fades, peace will be disrupted.  Often, the personal-mind is like the Moon, always changing and if we know that all thought has error, we can "create, see the error and correct it" in our progressive thought processes. To always be right, is a process of denial---as is to always be wrong. In truth, thought is merely a subtle medium/material that we work with and is not a Truth until we can make it manifest as a successful and  expansive operation of a  living organism. Thought, in order to "be rightful motion" must always be expansive and limber with the goal of improving on past action, as progressive thinking demands flexibility just as life demands motion.
 
The Principle to all systems and the Universal Pattern which is Chokmah, the Second Sephiroth on the Qabalistic Tree of Life, called Wisdom, may be considered the Real. Sure there is Kether, the One, The First, but Kether is potential "I" while Chokmah is an active "I".

The Kether 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, a dreamer who is not lucid.

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

Chokmah 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 when turn toward what are believed to be survival issues. 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 which is a symbol for Wisdom and showing the benign influence of the Greek Mother of Heaven. 
{Wisdom-Hebrew illustration)

On the Thoth Card, the affirmation of balance is the cross of light made of pin wheel like forms that imply a balance of active energy.

Also The Thoth, 2 of Swords; Peace, is often 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/rose of wisdom.

The resolution that is Peace of Mind is shown as four pin-wheels which represent the four levels of mind, emotional, mental, spiritual and 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 Thoth 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.


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 Babylonian Tarot, 2 of Swords-Peace Restored, depicts a peace treaty being struck by two opposing rulers.
However, the accompanying soldiers are armed and ready for battle, thus showing the tenuousness of this peace.

In ancient Mesopotamia, a conquered ruler was often left as a feudal tenant, his status declared by a vassal treaty.
Monarchs of equal strength and power, often  sought a party treaty, professing equal status. Such important treaties were often  recorded and witness by an official oath taking ceremony. Blessing bestowed on the oath keepers, and curses bestowed on the oath breakers. When broken, a party treaty also gave the aggrieved party the right to declare war on the offender.

The two upright arrows on the Babylonian Card, portend good fortune, but the moon also portends the changeable nature of such a peace. The two uniformed wedges are the cuneiform symbols of the number 2.

WHEN THE TWO OF SWORDS or 2 of Arrows, IS THROWN DURING A DIVINATION:

It implies :

  • 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..
The Two of Swords card also represents:
  • Peace of Mind, where two issues, situations, choices or relationships  become integrated on the subconscious level and the mind is at peace.
  • In two weeks or two months you will begin feeling the outward  physical signs of this integration. 
  • This is the most positive of all the Sword Cards, and it shows that compromise is working at this stage and that often good comes out of a bad situation.
  • This card reminds us that changes can be made, so by fearing confrontation, we may avoid a unpleasant situation, but it is not going to go away until we face it with inner courage.
  •  Reminds one that to avoid the issues at hand----simply means we are living in a past and have no living motion in the present!
  • Peace is often sought, but unless we compromise, it is rare to find.
Understanding the Two of Swords or Two of Arrows, helps us to remember, that we are not thought; the thinker is the power over thought, not run by it.  Contrary to most belief systems, our thought is not more precious than any living being. Life is what we are about, thought is merely the "first material" that we work with, Life is the manifestation of imagination as an "alive" image and to enhance the living with expansive and liberated thought is the job of a "Thinker".

We all have inherited the Power to "Think" which gives us the ability to begin creation. Thought has no power over us any more than it does over the Divine Creative. Being the Divine Child, we have the Mind of Creation/Imagination, which means the ability to "image make", therefore thought, the "First Matter", is merely a "subtle clay" for our rough sculpturing of Self-Awareness, that must be smoothed and refined by the constant attention of experience. To agree on a Sculpturing together, is peaceful and often more fun than attacking each others creativity with thoughts of "right and wrong"!
