Oracle de Belline: Card 26: Peace


French Name: La Paix.

Number: 26.

Planet: Venus.

Appearance: A fasces (bundle of sticks) surrounding a double-headed axe. Two laurel branches are at the bottom.

Keywords: Peace, Armistice, Agreement.

Personal Notes: The symbol of the fasces has been perverted by the Fascist movement, but originally, the fasces only meant a symbol of authority. The double axe, or labrys, is an ancient Cretan symbol of female power. The laurel, as stated before, is a symbol of victory. The struggle is over, and the hatchet is buried.
