2 of Swords (Cross Spread)

2 of Swords

The Two of Swords is a card of choice and of the difficulty of making a decision. The woman in this card is blindfolded and this may be intentional to indicate that she is avoiding making a very difficult decision. The appearance of this card means that you are currently being faced with a difficult decision but you are attempting to hide from it and pretending that if you ignore the decision long enough, it will go away.
Thus, the Two of Swords acts as a reminder that life‘s decisions are frequently really difficult. However, you must face these difficult moments and make your decisions. Avoiding them will only to a greater conflict.
The fact that the woman is blindfolded indicates that you lack the information necessary to make the right decisions. You may be missing something, such as alternative solutions, potential risks, threats or key pieces of information. Once you can remove the blindfold and see the real situation, you will be able to determine your path to follow. Do some research about your options, look for external feedback and opinions, and ask yourself what you are missing. What extra information do you need? Why is this decision so difficult to make?
The Two of Swords often represents a stalemate where there is neither winner nor loser. What is needed is a truce, where you either try to understand each other‘s perspective or'agree to disagree‘ in order to reach a final solution.
