Thoth Tarot & comparisons

Tarot Card Comparisons: The Qabalistic Thoth Tarot- 2 of Swords: Peace & The Jungian Tarot- 2 of Swords : Opposition and Loss

The Tarot of EliThe Qabalist Thoth, 2 of Swords; Peace, of the Hermetic Qabalah:  represents a peace that 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; 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 immortal 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, as it has 3 signs of transformation:
  1. The Scorpion, noted for its aggressive nature.
  2. The Serpent, noted for its sexual nature.
  3. The Eagle, note for its ability to go to great heights in the Occult of Mind/Air.
This is a transformation 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.
 
All Swords represent the often unruly element of Air.

The Thoth Two of Swords-Peace, is ruled by Chokmah (Wisdom), a fiery energy state of Conscious that is the 2nd Sephira on the Hermetic Qabalah's Tree of Life. 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 suit.

However, The Two of Swords zodiacal attribution is the Moon in Libra. Libra balances the changing nature of the Moon, allowing the energy of the suit (Chokmah) 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/ (Chokmah's English name is Wisdom). The Blue Rose of the Thoth Tarot, produces white rays that become 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.) dispels the antagonism and all is a strained peace for the moment.
The Jungian Tarot-2 of Swords: Opposition and Loss, represents rivalry, criticism, and opposition. Here the paradoxical nature of swords is emphasized.
This passion for change, is shown by the flames encompassing the swords, as there is no possible resolution to a problem: an end has been reached.
The impulsive action of passion, is often bearer of a negative result, such as, a negative verdict, collapse or loss. This passionate urge that produces  these negatives, belongs to the person who must accept responsibility for their own actions, or there will be no peace in their mind.
Friendships may be destroyed; such as, a marriage, business partnerships,  and/ or a financial loss caused by ill-considered speculation.
Seems a gloomy paradox; However, the same "opposition" and loss of what was secure, is the very positive passion that makes excellent artists, musicians, poets; indeed excellence in all of the arts. In that regard, increased intuition and imagination are represented by the Jungian 2 of Swords.

When Thrown in a divination the 2 of Swords card represents;
  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.
  • A new 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. Hence, quieting the "slave-master within" program of the indoctrinated brain.
  • 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.

Because of the very 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 proof made manifest through experience.
