Every Tuesday I select one card and give you my interpretation of it. See how it applies to your life. What messages are here for you?
Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Today's card is the Two of Swords, a card of decisions and feeling stuck. The card pictured here comes from the Gilded Tarot deck.
Twos can indicate the need to make a choice/decisions, partnerships, duality and balance. Swords indicate conflict and/or they have to do with your intellect, thoughts and the mental realm.
The Two of Swords can indicate a decision that needs to be made, but not having the ability or need to think about it or look at it just yet.
It can also be a card of feeling stuck between your thoughts. Both options look equally pleasing or displeasing and it's easiest NOT to decide. I call this the "sanctuary of confusion" and can find myself in this state when I just don't want to or have to decide...yet.
Pulling this card today probably indicates that you are on the fence about something. The decision can be something big or small. The Two of Swords indicates that it's been on your mind and that possibly you haven't decided what to do and so you have not taken any action.
It reminds me of a quote my wise aunt told me when I was growing up, "NOT to decide is to decide." If you have a pretty good idea what situation/decision I am talking about in your life, a good question might be this: As long as I'm not deciding (or taking action), what am I deciding?
For example, if you haven't decided whether or not to apply for a new job and haven't submitted your application, by NOT deciding (and not taking any action), you have decided to NOT apply for the job. Until you decide and take action, your path will lead you towards NOT applying. Does that make sense?
Realizing the truth of this concept (not to decide is to decide) helps you to see that you really do have your blindfold on and will stay stuck until you actively decide something.
Know that it's OK to research and review the options, which isn't really what the Two of Swords is about. This card is about gyrating around potential solutions so much that you feel stuck and may be driving yourself and others crazy because you just won't decide. Pondering is fine, just know that when you bump up against the energy of the Two of Swords, it's time to take action.
Use the energy of the Two of Swords today to remove the blindfold and either actively make a choice to move forward (even if it's just a baby baby step) OR realize that by not deciding you are deciding...at least for now. Simply acknowledging this may help you to feel less stuck and more in the space of being able to decide.
