The Two Of Swords

The Two of Swords quite literally symbolizes a person being at "cross purposes" with themselves.  Swords often indicate conflict and strife.  In this instance, it refers to a struggle which originates within the individual's psyche.

Here are some questions meant to help the querist resolve their dilemma:

-How long have you been "sitting on the fence"?

-If you removed your blindfold what are you afraid that you might see?

-Are you hoping that if you just wait passively by long enough that the problem will go away by itself?

-If you make a decision or choice what will be the consequences?

-Do you put up a false front for appearance's sake?

-What's to be gained by choosing not to choose?

-Are you conflicted about which to follow?  Your heart or your head?

The ultimate message of the Two of Swords is unless we incorporate and integrate our heads and our hearts we will find ourselves sitting on bench with the world passing us by. We never obtain perfect balance as there are no perfect solutions in life. Life is a constant process of resettling as one of my wise mentors admonished me years ago. How right she was! Spiritual equilibrium is only obtained through honoring our heart center.

Amy bows low at the feet of all her holy teachers.
