Two of Swords
The Light and Shadow Tarot
by Brian Wiliams with art by Michael Goepferd
August 6-7, 2022: Early in my Tarot journey, I learned that Two of Swords signifies a clash of ideas and words, a meeting of the minds--on a field of battle! It can also indicate one person's internal conflict, and artist Michael Goepferd depicts it here as a figure wearing a blindfold and positioning the feet in a way that restricts movement. The swords also lock in a cross in front of the figure's headdress like a shield.
I've never considered this before, but the Two of Swords is a big honking NO! card. It refuses. It resists. It leashes and controls. It's stubborn as hell, and it doesn't even want to take the risk of seeing what's right in front of it.
There are times that legitimately call for this sort of resistance and self-protection, just as there are times when this response turns into an unfortunate mistake. Consider that difference as you look at what's emerging within or around you this weekend. It's important to discern that difference and choose your next action wisely.
