In the midst of confusion, find your balance and let your intuition guide you to a decision.


The upright Two of Swords represents the need to make a decision in a calm and collected manner. It signifies the importance of balance and finding a middle ground, even when faced with two opposing choices. This card suggests that you need to weigh the pros and cons of each option before making a decision, and to consider both your head and your heart in the process. Trust your intuition and inner guidance, as this will help you to make the right choice.

Possible examples of situations that may be represented by the upright Two of Swords include being torn between two job offers, struggling to decide between two potential romantic partners, or feeling conflicted about a major life decision.


The reversed Two of Swords suggests that you may be avoiding a decision that needs to be made. You may be stuck in indecision or fear, and are therefore unable to move forward in your life. This card represents a need to take off the blindfold and face your fears head-on, even if it means making a difficult choice. The reversed Two of Swords may also indicate that you are making a decision based solely on logic, and are ignoring your emotions and intuition in the process.

Alternatively, this card can foretell that after a period of doubt and confusion, you will start seeing the reality of a situation.

Possible examples of situations that may be represented by the reversed Two of Swords include feeling paralyzed by a major life decision, avoiding a conflict or difficult conversation, or ignoring your intuition and making a decision based solely on rationality.

In summary, the Two of Swords represents the need to make a decision in a calm and collected manner, while weighing both logic and intuition. Trusting your inner guidance can help you find the balance needed to make the right choice, even when faced with two opposing options.
