Two of Swords


With the two swords, you’re going through a period of indecision. Each sword pointing away from the body represents a different line of thought, and there’s a stalemate. The figure is blindfolded here, indicating an inability to see clearly which is the best course of action, and you’re afraid of making the wrong decision.

Two of Swords Meaning

The two swords have a weighting aspect to them, both upright and reversed, so keep that in mind as we go through this description. There’s a choice to be made with the two swords upright; you’re weighing two different ideas. As reflected by the choppy waters, there is some tension and inner turbulence.

You may be attempting to be fair, but you’re stuck; you don’t know what to do; you may be unable or unwilling to make a decision. This card has a quality of “what am I supposed to do?” You may also need to accept the fact that you can’t see everything and don’t have all of the information you need to make a decision. With the two swords, the best course of action is to recognise that a decision must be made, but also to recognise that you may not have all of the information you require. Continue to analyse and weigh your options.

You may need to look within yourself to figure out how to proceed, but remember that you are in a position of choice, so take your time. The two swords were reversed. Sometimes a person makes a decision by not making a decision, by simply giving up and not deciding at this time, laying down the ideas and walking away. You may not have all of the facts you need yet. This could also be due to anxiety, making it even more difficult to make a decision.

Two of Swords Reversed

With two of swords reversed, the best course of action is to wait stop pause don’t do it just step back and ask for some time because you don’t have all the information you need to make a fully informed decision so exhale pause and accept that you may have to stall a little bit.
