Two of Swords Overview

The Two of Swords is defined much like it appears. This is a card of tension or unwillingness to do something. Think of the chant “hell no, we won’t go” for this one.  The woman in this card has a blindfold across her face symbolizing that she may not be able see the situation for what it actually is, causing the tension or inability to make a solid decision. Should this card appear reversed, much of the tension in the previous upright position has been released.
