The meaning of the card Two of Swords upright
When the Two of Swords is straight in a Tarot reading, it can mean that you are unwilling to accept some truths about yourself or about a situation you may be involved in. It says that you have put up barriers between yourself and others and within yourself. You are behaving exactly like the figure in the Two of Swords card, where the woman has put a barrier of swords in her heart. This is the time to stop avoiding the truth and pretending that everything is fine. This is the time to stop blocking your inner emotions and refusing to feel them. This is the time to stop thinking in one direction and go in another. When you receive this card during a reading, stop and think about what you're really feeling. Are you resisting because you think you might get hurt? Are you furious internally even though you're smiling externally? Putting up barriers is not the solution. The solution comes once you face the truth or just acknowledge that the problem exists.
The meaning of the card Two of Swords reversed
When the Two of Swords is reversed in a Tarot reading, it can mean that you are being indecisive. There may be fear and confusion. It can leave you inert and unable to act. It can also mean that you are finally seeing something for what it is.
