2 of Swords

Featured Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Lightseer’s Tarot by Chris-Anne Donnelly

Posted on Updated on

Artist: Chris-Anne Donnelly

Key Concepts

Light Seer: stalemate, a crossroads, making a difficult choice, opposing ideas or options, choosing the best route of action, memory and thought

Shadow Seer: a difficult choice, the angst of the unknown, between a rock and a hard place, fear of commitment

Message from the 2 of Swords

Decide. Decide. Decide. Decide now. The feeling of not knowing? I feel ya’. It’s time to make a choice and it may seem like you are between a rock and a hard place. Know that the only reason you feel this way right now is because you can’t see the bigger picture…yet. The Two of Swords is whispering that you must move in one direction or the other because the big picture won’t arrive until you do. By avoiding this decision, you are allowing the landscape to shift around you, without your input or your preference. While outside opinions may be pulling you in two directions, it’s time to close your eyes and listen to your internal landscape for the answer. If your intuition is being overly quiet, it’s leaving it up to you to trust yourself to make the right decision. If you need some time to think, take it…but don’t bury your head in the sand. Even in blindness you know the best way forward! When you choose your path, the future will reveal itself, and your intentional movement will help to move things towards a ‘best-case scenario’. With all of your logic and emotion, intuition and reason, have faith that the Universe is serving up the right experience for you at this time. Know that you can only do your best using the information that you have, so take a committed step in one direction. At the crossroads of duality, analysis and over-thinking will just get you buried in the quicksand of a million possible endings, so find peace of mind by trusting your judgment.

Card of the Day – 2 of Swords (Knives) – Monday, November 4, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Again with the choices.  As I indicated yesterday, we have a string of cards, starting yesterday, exploring the many conundrums and actions within various types of choices.  The 2 of Swords (or Knives in this case) is often associated with indecision when faced with a crossroads which requires one to make a choice.  The primary cause the inability to choose exists is, in most cases, the fear of the unknown.  Life does not promise a guaranteed outcome, but even when you feel as though you may have gone the wrong way, eventually the Universe offers up a fork in the road of your path, allowing you to begin again, and to head off in a new direction.  Such is the case right now.  Do not beat yourself up if you are uncertain what to do; there is nothing wrong with weighing a matter carefully before proceeding, especially with Mercury retrograde through November 20.  Do not sweat it; you will move forward sooner than you may think.

The other thing I want to mention, going back to Friday, November 1, when the 5 of Swords made an appearance, is a stalemate.  Now I do not believe that our Bride and Groom are about to face off, but pay attention to matters around you, because this is definitely in the air.  This reminds me of a duel, which in the olden days, knives were actually the weapon of choice.  These days, it is smear campaigns, social media posts, and Twitter wars, but still the face-off between two sides exists.  It may appear to you that it is not gaining ground very quickly, but that will soon change.

See you here tomorrow!

Featured Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Crow Tarot by M.J. Cullinane

Posted on Updated on

Artist: M.J. Cullinane

Website: www.enchanteddecks.com

Card Meaning

The blindfolded crow balances herself on the blades of two swords. She calmly stays in place, unable to see the edges or where to hop to next safely. She is afraid of making a dangerous or painful mistake. The Two of Swords suggests you may find it difficult to make a significant decision because you feel you are unable to see the full picture or that there is valuable information that is being withheld. If you are feeling stuck or unable to move forward, evaluate where the fear is coming from and look for the steps you can take to ensure that you have enough information to proceed safely.

THE CARD’S STORY BY: KYLEN BAIER

For the Two of Swords I have chosen the werewolf – the idea behind this is that there is an internal conflict between man and wolf. Th e woman is a new werewolf and hasn’t come to accept what she is and move forward by embracing her wolf side. She hides behind a blindfold and avoids the conflict. Instead it creates more conflict as the human and wolf cannot come together. Th e crossing swords belong to her two sides and they must find a balance. Th is card resonated with me as I frequently procrastinate and avoid difficult decisions because I am avoiding conflict or possible consequences to my decisions, but my avoidance always ends up making the situation worse rather than better.

THE CARD’S MESSAGE BY TRISH SULLIVAN

In a field of calming chamomile, a werewolf stands, poised and ready to take a step forward. But the way is blocked by two crossed swords, one belonging to each of its two forms. Not held or wielded in aggression, but still, ever present. For now, the werewolf is trapped. It may seem like putting this off is helping. You may even have managed to create some peace and quiet for yourself by doing so. But it’s not really working. It’s a temporary solution at best, but what is more likely is that you’re actually making things worse for yourself in the long run. You need to stop avoiding the issue. Instead, try taking a long, honest, hard look at the situation, and let the facts of the matter present themselves. Th en make a firm decision, and act on it!

MYTHOLOGICAL ASSOCIATION: WEREWOLF

The myth of the werewolf can be traced back as far as the tales of the hero Gilgamesh, and again in the ancient Greek tale of Lycaon, who angered Zeus and was turned into a wolf along with his sons. By day the creature lives as a mortal, but under the light of the full moon, they transform into a wild creature. A mixture of both human and wolf, they prowl the land looking for prey upon which to feed. Th e dual nature of this creature, living in both the world of the human and monstrous creates a truly mythical Two of Swords.

Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Friday, July 5, 2019

Posted on Updated on

It is as though you are entering a portal, and the curtain is closing behind you. Before you lies dense fog, complete unknown. It is not possible to know what is on the road ahead of you. Yes, it is Eclipse season, and right now we are in the space in between with Mercury preparing to retrograde in two days. Did I mention the fog is thick?

One thing is for sure, unless a decision on your part is urgently needed, now is not the time to be making one. This is a time to expect the unexpected, so pace yourself for now, so as not to be completely blindsided.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Sunday, June 16, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Decisions can be difficult when conditions are a bit foggy. You will likely find that to be the case today, with so many players joining the party – Mercury, Jupiter, Saturn, and especially Neptune, which is about to retrograde on the 21st. Neptune is like a big old fog machine some days, and Jupiter loves to expand things. Mercury provides thought and communication, which may not feel clear enough for a rational decision. Saturn is the proverbial party pooper.

Bottom line for today, if you do not need to make an important decision, put it off for a couple of days – let some of the fog dissipate. However, do not allow yourself to be influenced by hopeful outcomes. Do what matters for you and only you.

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Saturday, May 18, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Full Moon blessings, everyone! Today is our Annual Full Moon in Scorpio, and Scorpio energy is very much the opposite of this card. Thank goodness! Scorpio loves the unknown and can see to the very depths of your soul. Things are not long hidden here and the truth can be exposed. When it comes to decisions it is time to either be all in…or not. There is no in-between speed under this Moon.

Some of you may find yourselves, not at what I would actually label a crossroads, but more like a juncture. There is a big release which is happening and an imminent rebirth and rising up…at long last. Do not fear what you do not know, for greater peace and better days are on the way. My apologies, there is no video for today, I have been in the hospital, and did not record far enough ahead. I hope to return tomorrow with a very special card. Have a great day!

See you here tomorrow!

Card of the Day – 2 of Swords – Wednesday, April 3, 2019

Posted on Updated on

Can you say Pisces overload? The thick fog created when Mercury began its first retrograde of 2019 back on March 5 at 29° Pisces, can not dissipate fast enough. Mercury is still in Pisces, and in its shadow phase from the retrograde; we are coming off of yesterday’s conjunction with Neptune, which is also in Pisces. We currently have Venus there enjoying herself. The Moon, in that dark spot known as its balsamic phase, is also in Pisces today, before its New Moon which will occur in Aries on the 5th. With the exception of those down under who should be sleeping, there will be a very long void-of-course Pisces Moon which will be present for pretty much the entire day. So, here’s the deal.

Today is not a good day for making any kind of decisions, starting any new projects, contacting any new clients, communication in general will not likely be clear, and there will be a propensity toward accident-prone behavior, and an increase in accidents. The 2 of Swords can be a very indecisive card, and today those decisions are best left alone. This card strongly suggests that you do not currently know enough to make an informed decision. When we follow the order of the cards this week, after yesterday’s Tower, there is reason to believe that some of you may be blindsided in some way; you simply will not see it coming. I talk more about where this is all headed in my lengthier Tarot Guidances, available now on Patreon and in my Members Only Area. There is an offer to receive April for free; check your email or my Facebook page for details.

See you here tomorrow!
