The Two of Swords is a card of decision-making and duality. The figure in the card is blindfolded, holding two swords crossed in front of her. This represents a stalemate or impasse, as the decision is not being made, or that there are two opposing choices or paths that need to be weighed carefully before moving forward. It can also suggest a need for impartiality and objectivity in decision-making, and the need to put aside emotions and personal biases to make a clear-headed choice.
In the reverse position, the Two of Swords can indicate that the decision has been made hastily or without proper consideration of all the options. There may be a feeling of regret or doubt about the choice that has been made, or a sense of being trapped or stuck in the decision that has been taken. There may also be a lack of clarity or information that has led to a poor decision, and a need to reassess and reevaluate the situation to move forward more effectively.
