Rider WaiteTarot Reading



Properties of 2 of Swords


Alternate Names: Peace


Keywords / Additional Meanings:

Gifts for a lady, influential protection for a man in search of help. Reversed: Dealings with rogues.



A hoodwinked female figure balances two swords upon her shoulders.

Divinatory Meaning:

Conformity and the equipoise which it suggests, courage, friendship, concord in a state of arms; another reading gives tenderness, affection, intimacy. The suggestion of harmony and other favourable readings must be considered in a qualified manner, as Swords generally are not symbolical of beneficent forces in human affairs.

Reversed Meaning:

Imposture, falsehood, duplicity, disloyalty.
