Challenging Choices With The Two of Swords Tarot

The Two of Swords always rings with the energy of having to make hard decisions, caught between a rock and a hard place. Feeling; “damned if you do and damned if you don’t”, so which way do you turn? That is why being connected to your higher self to help you make those decisions is so important. Versus; making decisions from impulse, fear or lack of knowledge. Of course, the third option is avoiding the issue altogether, with your head stuck in the sand and hoping the problem will somehow work out on its own without your guidance. By far, the third option is your worst choice as you completely give your power away to the roll of the dice and they are not even your dice.

The Two of Swords always indicates you are facing challenging issues but unclear about your best options. You hope that some or all of the decisions made will have the good outcome you are hoping for but also wanting guarantees, which is not going to happen. This card forces you to weigh the pros and cons of each of your options from a place that guarantees nothing but faith, trust and believing that somehow it will all turn out ok. Only your Higher Self can give you those answers and still with no concrete guarantee.

The Two of Swords reversed shows you are facing a difficult decision and cannot or you are unwilling to decide which direction to take. As a result, you find yourself feeling stagnate and unable to move forward, which just makes the situation seem worse. The trouble with this card being reversed is that everyone only sees the issue from their perspective. If you are willing to look at the situation from another angle, a possible compromise could be reached. Otherwise, this issue will not move forward.

In general, the Two of Swords tells us that partnerships are likely going somewhat well, whether these be friendships, romantic, or business. It is the depths of your commitment to equality is the real issue, whether it be by you or you being treated as an equal from others.

Career, Love, Money, Health, Spirituality

Career: You may feel stagnate in your job, waiting for some decision or change made by other people and out of your control. Patience is of the utmost importance if you want to have the outcome you are hoping for. If you know all the players on the chess board and have a good idea of how and when the moves are going to be made, things are likely to work out in your favor.

Love and Romance: The Two of Swords is a good sign romantically, especially if it is one already well grounded. This card can signal that your relationship is ready to move into a balanced equal partnership, such as marriage. If you are single, be brave enough to take a good hard look at any emotional issues concerning your definition of love and being loved by others. Men can smell desperation a mile away, and it is a major turn-off. A life partner does not complete you; a life partner is the icing on the cake of your own complete life. Do not look outside yourself for happiness.

Money: In terms of finances, the Two of Swords shows a need for balance and caution. It can sometimes indicate a trait of impulsive buying and not saving for a rainy day. Know where every penny comes and goes. Hiding from your financial issues will not solve them. If you need extra income, know that you can make it happen, you’ll just need to be creative. Ask the Universe and your Higher Self to open more doors of prosperity for you.

Health: When this card appears on health questions, it is telling you to pay attention to the significant impact negative emotions are having on your health. Don’t bottle up what needs to be said or let other people pull YOU into THEIR drama. Positive thinking and a calm approach to life will bring much needed balance. You know the routine; eat as fresh as you can, get enough sleep, daily or weekly exercise routine and of course, water, water, water!

Spirituality: When the Two of Swords appears connected to your spirituality, it is looking to remind you that you are on a more balanced and positive path than you realize. Whatever your spiritual beliefs are at the moment, they are working for you until you are ready to grow again in awareness, even if your belief system doesn’t work for anyone else but you.

Susan Z’s Verdict

We all have had moments in our life where there is a fork in the road for important life decisions. If you practice everyday listening to that quiet, still voice within you that gives you peace, you will feel better about any decision you must make on your life journey, regardless of the outcome.
