Two of Swords
Keywords: decisions, waiting, solitude, blocked, balance, truce, contemplation
General meaning: The path ahead may not be clear at this time. You need more time and space to weigh out your options. The answer you seek will come after more reflection. This is not the time to take bold action – instead, sit with your situation for a bit until you have a better sense of what needs to be done. Timeout. Emotional blockages. Vision problems. An inability to make a decision. The middle ground. Keeping the peace. Trying to be all like Switzerland ‘n stuff.
Reversed: The Two of Swords reversed indicates that the wait is over and action resumes. You are able to see exactly what needs to be done. Absolute clarity. No second guessing. Movement at last. Seeing the light. A decision may be made for you. Getting off your ass and making stuff happen. A lighter load. Taking sides.
Affirmation: I make decisions that feel right for me.
Theme song: “Should I Stay or Should I Go?” by The Clash
Journaling prompt: When have you felt completely torn between two options? What emotions did that situation evoke? Journal about difficult decisions and the emotions that come with that.
You can’t see straight? Then meditate
Sit yo ass right down and contemplate
It may seem all heavy like a ten-ton weight
Divide it up, let it percolate
The answers come when you hesitate
And sit with it, let them wait
Create your own sell by date
Your decisions made may seal yo fate.
When they push you hard don’t take the bait
You in charge, circumnavigate
Take time out to inner operate
It’s yo life; keep it straight.
