Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - 2 Of Swords

2 Of Swords
Introduction: The 2 of Swords is often a card about partnership and balance. It usually refers to a "partnership" with just one other person as opposed to with groups of people. This card shows a need for give and take (none of us are always right 100% of the time, and everyone to some degree has something to offer.) Consider to what degree your life, and your partnerships, are in balance.

General: In general the 2 of Swords tells us that your partnerships are likely to be going at least somewhat well, whether these be friendships, romantic, or business. However, you should consider the depths of your commitment to equality in these and whether or not you are being treated as an equal by your partners. If you are not, it may be time to bring things back into balance. This will almost certainly require open communication on your part. Nothing changes without effort.

Work: You may be stuck waiting on a decision that has to be made by other people. Try to be patient and refrain from pushing people to move before they are ready. If you have done your homework, things are likely to work out in your favor. Make sure you have done what you are supposed to do work wise, and if you haven't, figure out how to explain and/or make amends, as you are likely to be called to account. Don't panic.

Love: The 2 of Swords is a good omen romantically, especially for a romance that is already in existence. This card can signify that your relationship will move into a lighter, easier, more balanced phase, with treating each other as equals playing a major role. If you are looking for love, take a good hard look at yourself to see if you have any outstanding emotional issues that need to be dealt with FIRST. People can smell desperation a mile away, and it is a major turn-off. A life partner does not complete you; a life partner is icing on the cake of your own complete life. Do not look outside yourself for happiness. Then the relationship you truly want and need will come.


Finances: In terms of finances, the 2 of Swords shows a need for balance and caution. Make sure you know where you are money-wise, to the penny. Hiding from issues will not solve them. If you need extra income, know that you can make it happen, you'll just need to be creative. The easiest thing to do is probably to cut your expenses. What are you spending that is not an absolute necessity? Balance your books. If you need help to do so, ask for it.

Health: When this card appears in the context of health questions, it signifies a need to pay very close attention to one's emotions. How are you feeling about things/people in your life? Journalizing and/or talking things out with someone you trust is very important now and can lead to a healthier outcome/to health breakthroughs. Positive thinking and balanced behavior is crucial now. Eating right, sleeping enough, getting enough exercise, drinking enough fluids.

Spirituality: When the 2 appears in relation to questions regarding spirituality, it shows that you are on a more balanced and positive path than you realize. Hold fast to what you believe and how you see things, even if your system doesn't work for everyone.
