Each week, I pull a card from a random Tarot deck to bring us a message or piece of wisdom that we can think about or use in our lives on some level – if not now, we can refer back to it when it seems to be more fitting for us. This is food for thought, and not drawn for any one particular person or situation.
For this week’s message, I have drawn from the Celtic Dragon Tarot. You can read my review of this deck at:
Reversed Two of Swords
With the Two of Swords in reverse, action starts to flow again after a period of blockage, delay, and frustration. The impasse is broken, and you feel able to finally get on with things. You may be getting “unstuck” from a rut you’ve been in. Communication can also improve, because the source of disagreement is gone or diminishing, and compromises can be reached. Thus, you may find that you have the power this week to be more flexible in the way you do things. You may see the way toward creating new outcomes for yourself.
This card suggests a decision this week to move on a matter that has been put on hold for awhile — where no decision has been firmly made until now. It doesn’t indicate either success or failure, as developments are still too early to get a clear picture of that. However, if you’ve looked at your options and carefully analyzed the information available to you, then making decisions that open up some new possibilities for you is probably a good step to take.
When you do the same thing over and over again but you don’t bring in positive results from that approach or effort, this is a sign that you need to do something differently. The choice to do something different for a change might not, in and of itself, solve your problem, but it certainly has the potential to at least bring you to some new possibilities that will ultimately be fruitful. Until you try, you’ll never know . . . so this is definitely a time of getting off that fence of indecision and stagnation and making a move. At least you won’t be sitting there idle anymore. Movement is what is needed, and this can bring about the very kinds of change that you need.
At this point, you may not know whether your choices are the “right” ones or not. It’s still too soon to tell. But sometimes taking a deep breath, and then taking that next step — whatever it may be for you — is the only way to get things moving again. You are tired of “sitting on the fence” and getting nowhere. At least the situation should be flexible enough so that you will have the option to change your mind if you feel you need to. You are not limited in your choices . . . but sometimes it’s hard to decide which choice is the best one. The Reversed Two of Swords shows that a new idea or another alternative may replace an original idea which brings about forward progress once again.
You may be in a situation where someone wants or expects you to “take sides.” You may choose to walk away from that and not get involved there, and that is the best choice you can make for such a situation. Sometimes friends, family, or coworkers get into disputes and want someone to side with them. The Reversed Two of Swords is very much against taking sides, and it strongly advises to back out of that sort of involvement. Don’t feel pressured into choosing sides, and don’t feel guilty because you choose to walk away from such a situation. It is wrong for anyone to ask you to unfairly side with them, and it puts you in an uncomfortable position to be “in the middle” of a dispute that isn’t even yours. Let them settle it between themselves.
Wishing you a productive week where clear thinking and positive decisions will rule.
