2 of Swords


“Keep your personal and professional relationship balanced to avoid a drama-free life.“

The 2 of swords is about confusion, unclarity, and challenges. You have numerous possibilities in front of you. But the irony of life is that being exposed to many opportunities adds more to your stress. The blindfolded woman sitting on her throne in white dress carries two swords in her hands. Her blindfold eyes indicate her plight that she can neither identify the problem and nor the solution. Lack of information or too much information is the reason for her indecisiveness.

The cross swords denote the significance of balance in life and also refer to her ability to weigh every option to reach the best solution. The rocky island reveals the impending dangers and also suggests that her decisions need clarity. The moon serves as a motivation to follow her intuitive abilities to decide the best.

When this card appears in your draw, it hints upon some internal or external battles. You are reluctant to choose what to go with and whose side to take in an argument. Life often throws us to crossroads, but we have to choose one. You have to accept that you can not make everyone happy, and the pretty things can be deceptive.

Two of swords advises you to keep your relationship balanced. You may be struggling in your personal and professional life at this moment. The reason is pretty much evident that you are waiting for the other party's decision. Stay patient and do not persuade yourself or the opposite party to decide abruptly.

Like the woman in the card, you are thinking of keeping your blindfold on to avoid problems. It is wrong. Beware of your surroundings. No one is responsible for resolving your conflicts. Own your decisions regardless of the situation to prevent any further damage.

The reversed appearance of this card suggests delays and postponements. It reveals that you are overwhelmed with fear, stress, and anxiety, resulting in emotional or mental turmoil. Try to see beneath the surface to expose lies and avoid mental fogginess.

Reversed 2 of Swords Meaning :

When this card appears to you in reverse, you might be struggling to decide when you are at crossroads about which choice to make. A difficult choice does not always mean that you have chosen the right path. It is all about believing in yourself, reconnecting to your soul, and figuring out what you truly desire. If you have lost your vision in your chase for something useless, go back into your thoughts and re-establish your vision
