Tarot Card for the Day ~ June 28

Two of Swords

The Knight of Two Swords

A card that turned up just 8 days ago.  And, as I said then, it’s a card that is given vastly different meanings depending on the reader and the circumstances of the reading.

Some readers would say this card indicates something like courage or balance in the face of adversity.  Others might suggest that a solution to a problem is available to the questioner, but he or she is blinded or distracted and can’t see it.  Or, a reader may insist that the querent (a person who questions an oracle) be careful about being stubborn.

Anna-Marie Ferguson, creator of the Legend deck, finds in the Two of Swords such things as having to make a choice without benefit of foresight, a moment of indecision, and a clouded perception of options.

That last phrase is the one that comes closest to my experience of what the card offers.

When the Two of Swords turns up for a client, I’m most likely to say something like, “Someone, possibly Khalil Gibran, wrote that the strength of the enemy is in our hearts, not in the enemy’s hands.” 

So if there is something you would achieve, and there seems to be great opposition arrayed against you, don’t let yourself be discouraged or dismayed.  Take a moment to become very clear about your goal –at least as clear as you can beTake a deep breath or two.  Square your shoulders and wade into battle.  That which seemed to be arrayed against you may simply turn to mist or smoke and allow you to pass through it like beams of pure light through a hologram.

Know your goal.  Keep your courage up.  Ground.  Center.  Move forward with strength and a go after what you believe to be for the highest and best! 

Bright blessings, clarity and progress!
