Tarot Two of Air, Two Swords, Peace Restored
Tarot minor arcana card Two of Air is ascribed to the first decan of Libra
Two of Air, Two Swords and each of the Minor Arcana cards numbered “Two” express attributes of Chokmah, whose title is Wisdom, on the QBL Tree of life.
Sephirothic Planetary Correspondence
The planetary correspondence of Chokmah is Uranus and each of the minor arcana cards numbered “Two” exhibit this astrological body’s qualities expressed through their corresponding elemental suit of fire, water, air or earth. These four suits are allocated to the four worlds of the QBL: Fire: Atziluth Water: Briah Air: Yetzirah and Earth: Assiah.
Astrological Decan Allocation
Two Air represents the first decan of Libra whose planetary attribution is Moon. The combination of Chokmah/Uranus and the decan planetary attribute of Moon is summed up by the card’s title of Peace Restored.
A Chokmah/Uranus Moon combination in Air under the auspice of Libra indicates a restoration of balance after and through conflict. It indicates ambition to succeed against all odds to achieve success after and through defeat and suffering. Contradictory characteristics in the same nature. Pleasure after pain, strength through suffering. Conflict made up but still some tension because of memory. A time for making difficult decisions.
Peace Restored is the outcome if the contradictory influences symbolized by the card are resolved. This is achieved through utilization of wisdom, the influence of Chokmah, following the natural flow of nature, the Moon. This is the Moon in her calculating Artemis phase. We are in the suite of Air so wisdom will be achieved through an analytic calculating nature.
Character qualities of the court card Queen of Air, clairvoyant and subtle apprehension of situations, are those best suited to receive and translate the specific ancestral voice of this decan. Because of the personality type she represents she is perceptive in interactions with others. This bestows her with a confident ability to anticipate their motives and ambitions.
Queen of Air exudes an atmosphere of grace and calm balance. Once more we see resolution of the card’s influence achieved because its polarity overcomes dichotomy.
Negative aspects of this personality type are cruel and deceitful with a tendency to be unreliable. These will become apparent if the card should be badly aspected.
In our failure to understand what any Minor Arcana card is saying, we should allow ourselves to be driven back to our specific inner voice of the decan for resolution.
In this example of Two Air, the conjunction of Major Arcana cards Justice and Moon, corresponding to Libra and High Priestess, are the specific signature of this decan and will be projected through the personality type represented by the Queen of Air. Queen of Air’s elemental quality corresponds to Water of Air. Each of the elemental Queen court cards correspond to the Water aspect of their elemental suit.
