Two of Swords
You may feel like you’re being pulled in two different directions today, or you may be struggling with an important decisions that have been weighing heavily on your mind.
The Two of Swords can refer to an impasse or stalemate that’s more likely than not a result of your own indecision.
It can refer to a pivotal moment in time where you recognize that the options before you are equally appealing (or terrifying) and that whatever decision you make will have a huge impact on your life.
In this respect it can 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.
The Two of Swords — this version from the Tarot of the Magical Forest — is called “Peace” in some decks, and as you can see from the image in this card, there is a certain harmony that comes from being still.
The cat in this card is blindfolded with her swords (decisions) crossed in front over her, each of them perfectly balanced. She isn’t leaning one way or the other; she hasn’t yet taken a stand.
The Two of Swords tells you that while you may ultimately have to make a decision, each one has value. And you can’t know the exact outcome of either choice until you do decide.
You want to weigh your decisions carefully today, knowing that they can have far-reaching repercussions. While you may have to sit back and consider your options carefully, in the end you’ll have to decide and then abide by your decisions.
