The transparent scissors.
Thinking about the two of swords, a balanced and calm state of mind really is the only truly useful state of mind. I thought, well, what’s the most useful and balanced use of two swords? A pair of scissors! Probably the most useful tool ever invented. A useful mind is a mind that shapes and trims, and cuts away obsolete thought patterns. The scissors are transparent so that they do not obscure the subject.
The Blue Lotus is the enlightened higher mind. At it’s center is a yin/yang symbolizing the fact that a balanced sane mind is one in which masculine and feminine qualities are equally honored, and also a mind that accepts both dark and light.
The owl is another symbol of rational wisdom, being the companion of Athena.
This card depicts everything good and liberating about clarity and sanity, and so is one of the most positive of the swords suit.
