Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth Tarot- 2 of Swords/Peace & The Connolly Tarot 2 of Swords

The Tarot of EliSwords represent the often unruly element of Air.

The Thoth Two of Swords-Peace, is ruled by Chokmah (Wisdom), a fiery energy 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 2 of any suit.

The Two of Swords zodiacal attribution is the Moon in Libra. This balances the changing nature of the Moon, allowing the energy of the suit (Chokmah/Hokmah) 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 Sophia/Wisdom/. The Blue 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 and Chokmah of the Qabalists .) dispels the antagonism and all is a strained peace for the moment. Here a quarrel is made up and arranged, the restoration of peace.


Again, 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 but often only because of denial. Once denial fades, peace will be disrupted. The 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/sensual 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 expansive operation of a living organism.

I am neither right nor wrong; I AM!

Thought, in order to "be rightful motion" must always be expansive and limber--- as progressive thinking demands flexibility just as life demands motion.

TheThe 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. Sure there is Kether, the One, but Kether is potential "I" while Chokmah is an active "I" that is in union with Binah the receptive "Am".

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.

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, "ME" is formed.
 
The Twos are objective and 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 masculine-Chokmah and the Feminine- 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. [The Astrological influence on every card must be known and understood, to see the subtleties of any Tarot Card]. Thus, in divination, the Two of Swords represents a quarrel made up and arranged, restoring peace. However, as stated, 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 Connolly Tarot- 2 of Swords, hasn't any title but does show a picture of uncertainty. We see one man contemplating two swords sheathed in a stump. He is uncertain of what to do.
However, the drummer is tapping out a message of "follow your own drum beat". Implying one should grab their sword of  individuality and march to their own drum beat.







WHEN THE TWO OF SWORDS 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..

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.
  • 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.
  • It 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 using "all material". Therefore, 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. Thought 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!
 
  1. Quarrels made up and arranged, Peace under tension.
  2. Action unselfish and sometimes selfish. 
  3. Strength through suffering, pleasure after pain.
  4. Sacrifice and trouble.
  5. 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 re-partition 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 airy 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 Truth which is proof made manifest; Such is the Wisdom of Chokmah.
