Two of Swords

Two of Swords

Today it’s going to be all about weighing the different options in your life so that you can arrive at an informed decision.

You may see yourself at an important cross-roads that you’re still feeling unsettled about. A career-related decision or a relationship, or even long-term goals that you’ve not yet pulled together.

Whatever it is, it’s going to be important for step back and weigh the different options that are available to you before you arrive at a decision.

While you don’t want to let yourself be swayed by external desires or distractions, you also can’t allow your own uncertainty to prevent you from taking a stand.

You may wish to “rise above” all of the turmoil that is festering beneath you, but as with the imagery depicted in this card, you won’t be able to completely escape it.

The Two of Swords refers to conflicting ideals. Feeling torn or pulled in two different directions. Weighing options. Straddling the fence.

It can also refer to inaction and immobility. Sometimes this is due to fear: “What if I make the wrong decision?” But it’s just as often related to a desire to not have to choose at all.

Notice that the figure in this version is wearing a blind-fold which covers both her eyes and ears. She’s also underwater. It’s as if she’s attempting to mitigate the turbulence around her so she can think.

Whether you feel yourself being pulled in two different directions — between head and heart, for example — or just need a break from the chaos surrounding you, this card encourages you to take a step back, be still in the moment and reflect on what you want, removed from any external distractions.

The inertia that comes from choosing not to choose can prevent you from moving forward. It’s going to be critical to weigh your options, make your decision and then stand by it in the end.
