Full Meaning

The Two of Swords normally shows two swords being crossed. Some decks depict the Two of Swords with a person blindfolded holding two crossed swords, but the emphasis is on the fact that the swords are crossed. They represent two opposing ideas and possibly a need to either choose the best route from the ideas or balance two opposing factions. With this card in your spread it is possible that you may find yourself faced with a choice consisting of two alternatives and by making the correct decision, rifts could be healed or issues resolved. Impartiality is a good word to observe when the two of Swords appears particularly if you are in the middle of a family row. This is a card of moving towards balance and harmony.

Traditional Symbolism

A hoodwinked female figure balances two swords upon her shoulders.
