TWO OF WANDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS AND DESCRIPTION
The man in the Two of Wands is holding a small globe and stands on the roof of a castle, looking out over a vast terrain to the right and an ocean to the left. The globe in his hands represents that the world is his oyster and there is huge potential if he can expand his horizons to encompass broader life experiences. He understands his ambition and knows what must be done. He is wearing an orange tunic, which symbolises an enthusiastic approach to life, and a red hat, symbolising a passion for adventure.

UPRIGHT TWO OF WANDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Two of Wands takes the spark of inspiration from the Ace of Wands and matures it into an actual path forward. Thus, the Two of Wands is all about planning and progressing. You have been able to take your idea and turn it into a feasible plan that you know will lead to your success. It is no longer just an idea but you now have a plan in place to ensure that your idea is carried out as you had intended.
The Two of Wands is also about discovery, particularly as you step outside of your comfort zone and explore new worlds and new experiences. It may take some courage to take the first step but this card gives you the confidence of self-knowledge. You know what your goal is, what your creative process is directing for you, and you are confident in its eventual fulfilment.
The Two of Wands indicates that you will begin to consider your longer-term goals and aspirations and will plan ahead for what you need to do to achieve these goals. You have already come so far but now you feel it is ready for a change, this time with your long-term future in mind. You may be considering overseas travel, further education or a major career change at this point in order to expand your learning and development, and to grow your horizons beyond your immediate environment. With careful planning, and a moderated approach, you will set yourself up for success in the future.
The Twos in Tarot often represent decisions of some sort. In the case of the Two of Wands, you are making a decision between sticking with what you know, or expanding your horizons and taking a risk. You know that the world has to offer you something ‘bigger’ or more meaningful, yet you are also aware that in order to maximise on this opportunity, you must leave your familiar grounds. Even though you have already invested a lot into your current circumstances, for you to be able to grow and to maximise your potential, it is imperative that you step out into a new world and explore your options.
This card shows the patience and focus of your intent. You have got the ball rolling and have started out on your journey, so now it is time to patiently wait for your rewards and watch as your ideas begin to materialise.

REVERSED TWO OF WANDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Two of Wands reversed suggests that you need to start organising your long-term goals and prioritising what is important to you and what you really want to achieve. At the moment, it may seem that you want so many things but you have not thought these through enough to make them a reality. Start at the beginning again and meditate on what is important to you and what motivates and drives you. Look at where your passions are, and then start planning how you will achieve these goals.
You may also be afraid to step out into unknown territories, despite the huge growth potential, instead preferring to stay with what is familiar to you. The trouble is your growth is current being stunted in your present environment and your world has become too small for you. It is time to bring your attention back to your original goal and understand the beneficial impact of taking a risk and stepping out into the bigger world around you.
The reversed Two of Wands can also indicate that you have overlooked some important details related to your plan for the future. You may have been moving full steam ahead but have recently hit a roadblock due to lack of planning. You may also be over-confident about your success, overlooking the things that matter most. Or, you may be losing your passion associated with your goal and are becoming easily bored and demotivated. It is essential that you re-ignite that passion, or start again with something you feel more inspired about.

TWO OF CUPS

TWO OF CUPS TAROT CARD MEANINGS KEYWORDS
Upright: Unified love, partnership, attraction, relationships
Reversed: Break-up, imbalance in a relationship, lack of harmony

TWO OF CUPS TAROT CARD MEANINGS AND DESCRIPTION
The Two of Cups depicts a man and a woman exchanging cups in what appears to be a wedding ceremony with the caduceus of Hermes between them. The two-snake caduceus design has ancient and consistent associations with trade, negotiation, balance, duality (union of opposites), proper moral conduct, protection and cosmic energy. On the Two of Cups, the caduceus sends a positive message for new partnerships, and suggests that with honour, respect and balance, new relationships shall be rewarding. At the top of the caduceus is a lion’s head, a symbol of passion and fire energy suggesting that there may be a lot of sexual attraction between the people, although that may or may not be allowed to express itself. The two snakes that wind up the caduceus represent dark and light and their coexistence within us.

UPRIGHT TWO OF CUPS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Two of Cups shows the beauty and power that is created when two become one. The card reflects balance, mutual respect and harmony in relations with one another. There is no ‘I’, just ‘we’, and both parties are focused on a mutually beneficial outcome or win-win situation.
The Two of Cups typically points towards a relationship that is based on mutual attraction and romantic inclinations. It reflects the clear, nurturing, supportive and heartfelt exchange of emotions that is the gift of a romantic relationship. The Two of Cups represents love that is nurturing, creative, clearly focused, inspirational and equally fulfilling. In a reading, this is often a beautiful start to a new romance in which you will experience understanding, harmony and deep love between two souls. The seed has blossomed into a tree of appreciation. Kindness and thoughtfulness will bind your two hearts together with the feeling of being simultaneously very special to one another.
In some cases, the Two of Cups can refer to marriage, proposals and engagements, particularly as this card portrays what looks like a wedding or hand-fasting. It is a reflection of commitment between two individuals, to say that they will go through life together, always considerate of each other’s needs and wishes.
Outside of love, the Two of Cups reflects a partnership of sorts, be it a business partnership, friendship or even a relationship between a person and their pet.
On first glance, the Two of Cups shares a similar message to the Lovers. However, the energy of the Two of Cups is slightly weaker than the Lovers card. Whereas the Lovers is the reunion of two complete beings, the Two of Cups is a less mature union that, stable as it may seem, does have the potential to come undone over a longer period of time. So, while the union is strong now, it is not clear whether the relationship shown by the Two of Cups can stand the test of time. Only the two people involved can decide that.
Despite the focus on the two beings shown on this card, the Two of Cups also points to what is happening within the individual. To be truly loved, deeply treasured and valued highly by others, you must first and foremost strive to create those feelings for yourself. That is, when you work toward loving yourself, you hold your inner spirit in high regard, treating it with deference and deep respect. When you see yourself in this positive light, other people cannot help but respond to your personal sense of value in an equally positive manner.

REVERSED TWO OF CUPS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
With the Two of Cups reversed, you may be struggling to form new partnerships and relationships due to a lack of trust or unfinished business from the past. You may also be reluctant to open yourself and expose your true feelings, resulting in disconnectedness from those around you or awkwardness. Your behaviour has become guarded and constrained.
The Two of Cups reversed may indicate a break-up or a lack of harmony within a relationship or partnership. You may not be seeing eye-to-eye and there is tension in your relations with each other. Each partner is finding it quite hard to be truly honest with each other and therefore the flow of communication is broken. There is a lack of mutual respect and understanding. Upright, the Two of Cups is a beautiful card to have because it shows balance and emotional connection. But reversed, it suggests that you are not on an even playing field and this is a fundamental issue. It is as if your partner thinks he or she is better than you or that his or her opinion matters more than yours.
Even if a relationship is going great guns, the reversed Two of Cups may be a sign that the relationship is more physical than heart-felt. It may be a fleeting affair rather than something more meaningful.

TWO OF SWORDS

TWO OF SWORDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS KEYWORDS
Upright: Indecision, choices, truce, stalemate, blocked emotions
Reversed: Indecision, confusion, information overload

TWO OF SWORDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS AND DESCRIPTION
The Two of Swords depicts a young, blindfolded woman who holds a sword in each hand. She sits before a sea filled with rocks and crags that present obstacles to ships which need clear passage. The blindfold shows that the woman in this card is confused about her situation and that she can see neither the problem nor the solution clearly. The swords she holds are perfectly balanced, showing a balanced and stable mind, and that both sides of the situation need to be addressed. The crossed swords are also symbolic of the need for a truce and the Suit of Swords indicates that the problem at hand needs to be resolved using logic and intellect. The waxing moon to the right of the woman shows a new beginning arising out of the solutions found for this problem.

UPRIGHT TWO OF SWORDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Two of Swords is a card of choice and of the difficulty of making a decision. The woman in this card is blindfolded, and this may be intentionally so, indicating that she is avoiding making a very difficult decision. Her state of calm and relaxation may be indicative that she is trying to avoid this important decision in order to bring about peace of mind. However, the decision must still be made. Therefore, the appearance of the Two of Swords indicates that you are currently being faced with a difficult decision but you are attempting to hide from it and pretending to yourself and others that if you ignore the decision long enough, it will go away of its own accord. However, the decision will not go away simply by your willing it to depart. Your conscience will eventually force you into facing your refusal to deal directly with the situation.
The Two of Swords therefore serves as a reminder that life’s decisions are frequently quite difficult and raise the possibility of painful consequences. However, you must “take the bull by the horns” and make your decisions with your best intentions, fully aware of the possible consequences. Avoidance will ultimately lead to a greater conflict.
The blindfolded woman in this card is also an indication that you lack the information you need to make the right decisions at this time. You may be missing something, such as threats or potential risks, alternative solutions, or key pieces of information. Once you are able to remove your blindfold and see the situation for what it really is, you will be in a much better position to determine your path forward. Research your options more widely, seek outside opinions and feedback, and ask yourself what you are missing here. Why is this decision so challenging to make? What extra information do you need?
Given the two swords in this card are in perfect balance as they cross the front of the woman, this card reflects the need for greater balance in your intellectual life. You need to take a break from your usual way of thinking, so that you can begin to consider alternative ideas and viewpoints. You also need to be very diplomatic and weigh up the pros and cons of both options that are available to you, and to consider that there may indeed be another way around the problem. You need to compromise or let things stand as they are.
The Two of Swords often represents a stalemate where there is no winner or loser. You may be at loggerheads with another person and failing to see each other’s points of view. What is needed is a truce, where you either ‘agree to disagree’ or you seek to understand each other’s points of view before coming to a final solution. Thus, not only does this card represent potential conflict through a stalemate, it also represents making peace through a truce.
Similarly, the Two of Swords can reflect indecision and being at an impasse with regards to an important matter. Again, there is only so much that you can try to put off. At some point or another, you are going to have to make a decision or have a point of view in order to get things moving again.
In a reading, it may be helpful to draw a further two cards, either side of the Two of Swords. This will highlight what it is you are trying to balance or decide upon. This may also identify the two alternative solutions from which you are trying to choose.

REVERSED TWO OF SWORDS TAROT CARD MEANINGS
The Two of Swords reversed shows that you are caught between a rock and a hard place and you are finding it incredibly difficult to make a decision about what to do. You are really struggling to see what the right choice is as either option will lead to negative consequences. Lay out the pros and cons of each option that is available to you and weigh up which option will have the most favourable outcome.
The reversed Two of Swords may also indicate mental confusion as a result of information overload. You are overwhelmed with other people’s points of view and additional, detailed information about what options are available to you. At the end of the day, you are going to have to make a decision, so sift through the advice and the information that is available to select only the most relevant and helpful.
The reversed Two of Swords may suggest that you are feeling stuck in the middle of two competing sides. You may be trying to play the peace-maker role but in doing this you are just confusing yourself and creating more tension. For example, you may be trying to bring two conflicting family members together in the hope of a harmonious family environment but instead you are finding yourself being the messenger or the dumping ground for each of their concerns. Decide whether or not you truly do have a role to play and whether you can indeed create peace between the two opposing parties. Otherwise, get yourself out of there!

TWO OF PENTACLES

TWO OF PENTACLES TAROT CARD MEANINGS KEYWORDS
Upright: Balance, adaptability, time management, prioritisation
Reversed: Disorganisation, financial disarray

TWO OF PENTACLES TAROT CARD MEANINGS AND DESCRIPTION
On the Two of Pentacles, a young man dances as he juggles his worldly concerns. The infinity sign loops around the two Pentacles suggesting that he can handle unlimited problems. In the background, two ships ride the waves easily, cruising the ups and downs of life. The man seems to have a somewhat concerned look on his face, yet he dances with apparent abandon despite the turbulence of the sea behind him.

UPRIGHT TWO OF PENTACLES TAROT CARD MEANINGS
In the Two of Pentacles is an individual whose consciousness, represented by the waters, is tossed by seemingly conflicting interests. While the Ace of Pentacles represents the beginnings of a new business or financial venture, the Two represents the need to balance that venture with other important areas of life such as family, friends, and even our own physical, mental, and spiritual well-being. This card indicates the necessity for balance between opposing desires and interests. Life will always be uncertain, yet if you can produce balance and harmony among all the demands upon you, you will ultimately live happily and in prosperity.
Thus, the Two of Pentacles serves as a reminder to remain alert, agile and patient as you attempt to juggle your family, your friends, work, finances, health and new challenges. You need to be very clear on your priorities and where you want to invest your time and energy. There is a tendency to be distracted by day-to-day affairs and general busy-ness, so prioritising your activities and carefully managing your time is essential.
The Two of Pentacles brings you back down to earth and reminds you to not only focus on your broader life goals but to also make sure your day-to-day affairs are in order. This is a card of good time management and financial management, ensuring that your bills are paid on time, that you keep a record of all your appointments and daily commitments, etc. It may sound tedious having to focus your attention on these more mundane issues but this card reminds you that sometimes getting on top of your daily affairs is as important as pursuing your broader life goals.
Sometimes, the Two of Pentacles can indicate that there are problems and difficulties in the future. There may be obstacles erected which hinder the attainment of what you wish to pursue or obtain in life. The situation may cause undue worry and again, you will be required to juggle your priorities and manage your time effectively to stay on top of the situation.
Similarly, the Two of Pentacles predicts change. You need to be able to cope with change, remaining flexible and adaptable in your approach. Rather than putting all your eggs in one basket, you may be better to keep two or more things going at once so you have the luxury of choice, should one option fall through. You must stay centred while you stay flexible and keep informed. Look for new possibilities, be open to change and go with the flow as best you can.

REVERSED TWO OF PENTACLES TAROT CARD MEANINGS
In your day-to-day life, the reversed Two of Pentacles suggests that you are very busy and at times you struggle to manage your activities and commitments. You may also be struggling to manage your finances and to stay on top of paying bills and keeping abridge of other financial commitments. The stress is getting to you and you are becoming easily overwhelmed by your responsibilities. Therefore, this card encourages you to become more organised and more planned in your approach. You may need to bring a little more structure to your day-to-day affairs, through budgets, ‘to do’ lists, forward planning or diary and effective time management. Life is certainly a juggling act, so make sure you are on top of everything you need to be!
The reversed Two of Pentacles can be a clear indicator that you are not managing your work and family commitments. It is more than likely you are investing most of your time in work, neglecting your family or your partner. While you may be able to get away with a couple of late nights at work, there will come a time when enough is enough and you will need to make a choice. Something has got to give!
Additionally, the Two of Pentacles reversed indicates that you are finding it hard to manage your finances and your cash flow may be quite unpredictable. Now is the time to start a budget and stick to it.
In a relationship reading, the reversed Two of Pentacles advises you not to over-commit, particularly on a more physical / logistical / material plane. Do not commit to too many plans as a couple at this stage or make any financial commitments together. Watch your spending and also how you manage your time. You may find that you get caught up with work or other commitments at this time which distracts your attention from your relationship. It will all come down to where your priorities lie and whether you want to let other commitments interfere with your relationship, or vice versa.

It can also indicate that you need to put contingency plans in place for a rainy day.

Health

Having too many balls in the air can cause you serious stress and anxiety which could be manifesting itself in physical illness or injury. If that is the case, you need to rest and reboot. Just remember, it’s important to give your health the attention it needs, if you run yourself into the ground you’ll be no good to yourself or anyone else.

Love & Relationships
In a love Tarot reading, if you are in a relationship, the Two of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you are trying to juggle too much and not finding time for the relationship. Work, financial stress, family issues etc. may be taking your attention away from your partner.

If you want to find a partner you need to make love a priority in your life.

Money & Career
In a career Tarot spread, the Two of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you are taking on too much and spreading yourself way too thin. Juggling too much is a recipe for failure, you need to prioritise and delegate some of your work load if possible. There are opportunities to reduce your work load or make work more manageable you just have to look for them. Alternately, you may already be suffering the consequences of taking on too much. If that’s the case, realise that you can’t change the past you can only learn from it and move forward. So rest, regroup and start again, this time a bit better organised and a little wiser. In a financial Tarot reading, the Two of Pentacles reversed is not a good omen as it indicates financial losses and poor financial decisions. Oh what a mess we’ve got here! You may have overextended yourself with loans or put all your eggs in one basket in terms of investments only to find they are now going south with no contingency plan in place or you may simply have overspent and realise now that you have wasted your money. Whatever the case, there is no point crying over spilt milk. You just need to learn from your mistakes and start making better choices. Seek professional advice if you are in debt and make a plan to get yourself out of it.

Spirituality
In a spiritual context, the Two of Pentacles reversed can indicate that you are lacking spiritual balance in your life which may be preventing you from pursuing your spiritual path. This may be because you are too focused on work or gaining material wealth or because you are spreading yourself too thin trying to do everything. You need to take time out for yourself to find the balance between mind, body and spirit.

Two of Cups Reversed Tarot Card Key Meanings:
Disharmony, disconnection, imbalance, inequality, incompatibility, unhappy couples, arguments, breakups, separation, divorce, ending partnerships, losing friendships, abuse, dominance, bullying

General meaning and interpretation
In a general context, the Two of Cups Tarot card reversed can indicate a lack of harmony or balance in your life. It can signify that you may fall victim to some form of inequality, abuse or bullying. Again, while this Minor Arcana card in a reversed position usually relates to a romantic relationship, it can also signify falling out with a friend or being in a friendship that is imbalanced or one-sided in some way. It can indicate a partnership breaking down or a lack of equality or mutual respect in a partnership. It can also be a sign of arguments with friends, family, partners, business partners or colleagues.

Health
In a health context, the Two of Cups reversed can suggest that disharmony, stress or tension may be causing a knock-on effect on your health. You see a lack of balance within you manifesting itself in physical symptoms such as headaches or migraines, high blood pressure or chronic fatigue. Try to resolve the imbalances in other areas of your life and see if your health issues subside.

Love & Relationships
In a love Tarot reading, if you are single, the Two of Cups Tarot card reversed can signify a romance with someone who you are incompatible with. It can indicate that someone you are dating may blow hot and cold on you. You may find that they can’t get enough of you one minute and disappear or give you the cold shoulder the next. If you are in a relationship, the Two of Cups reversed is not a great omen as it can signify arguments, broken engagements, separation or divorce. It can signify that you and/or your partner have been taking the relationship for granted and not putting the work in. You may find yourself drawn to someone other than your partner. Alternately, you may find that you and your partner have become so co-dependent that it is creating resentment or arguments in your relationship. Whatever the issue, if you want your relationship to survive, this card tells you that you need to rebalance the relationship. Or you may need to rebalance yourself by getting your own emotions, issues or ego in check, which may naturally balance out the relationship. The Two of Cups reversed can, in some Tarot readings, signify abuse, dominance or controlling behaviour. Look to the supporting cards for confirmation of this.

Money & Career
In a career context, the Two of Cups reversed can signify dissolving a business partnership that has turned sour. You and your business partner may no longer have the same goals or respect for each other that you once did. If you are not in a business partnership, you may find yourself butting heads with your colleagues or falling victim to some sort of inequality, harassment or bullying in the workplace. Your finances may be lacking balance with this Minor Arcana card in reverse so watch your spending when it appears.

Spirituality
In a spiritual context, the Two of Cups reversed can indicate that you are disconnected from the love and positive energy the universe is sending you. You may find it difficult to connect to spirit and find that you powers are very off balance at the moment. Try some meditation or energy work to bring yourself back into alignment with your spiritual path.

TWO OF SWORDS

Two of Swords Tarot Card Key Meanings:
Stalemate, truce, sitting on the fence, cross roads, difficult decisions, painful choices, stressful decisions, opposition, facing your fears, being torn between two relationships, divided loyalty, being caught in the middle, denial, blindness, inability to see the truth, avoidance, blocked emotions.

General meaning and interpretation
In a general context, the Two of Swords represents a stalemate, truce or being at a crossroads. It indicates that you are sitting on the fence or struggling to make/ avoiding a difficult, stressful or painful decision. It is the Minor Arcana of coming face to face with your fears. It can also signify being torn between two loyalties, relationships, situations, offers or people. It represents being caught in the middle of an argument or conflict and trying to mediate between opposing parties. The Two of Swords also represents blocking emotions, being in denial, blindness and an inability or unwillingness to see the truth.

Health
In a health context, the Two of Swords indicates that blocked unexpressed emotions may be at the centre of any health issues or physical discomfort you are experiencing. Blocked emotions or holding on to anxiety or resentment can affect the heart chakra leading to physical problems related to the heart, lungs or back among others. If you are experiencing issues with these areas, as well as seeking appropriate care from a medical professional, you should also consider what steps you can to take to release the emotions blocking that area.

Love & Relationships
In a love Tarot reading, if you are in a relationship, the Two of Swords can indicate a stalemate or a relationship at a crossroads. It may be that you and your partner have been arguing frequently lately or cannot agree on an important relationship decision and have called a temporary truce. You may simply need a bit of time and space to consider the pros and cons of the matter and how you can come to an agreement. You may simply be reluctant to make a decision on this matter as you risk being vulnerable. However, it can also indicate that a painful choice needs to be made regarding the future of the relationship but you are both sitting on the fence because of the pain the decision will bring. This Minor Arcana card can also signify being torn between two relationships. Whatever the case, you need to face your fears and make a decision so that everyone concerned can move forward in their lives either together or separately. If you are single, the Two of Swords can indicate you have a choice between two potential partners and this choice may be causing you great difficulty. However, the choice does need to be made for the good of all concerned as it is unfair to keep stringing them along. Alternatively, it can mean that you are avoiding letting someone know you are interested for fear of rejection.

Money & Career
In a career Tarot reading, the Two of Swords indicates that you may be caught in the middle of a conflict at work. You may be asked to choose between two colleagues with opposing views. This will be difficult and stressful for you as you do not want to appear disloyal to either of them but they are unwilling to meet in the middle. It can also signify that you are torn between two career paths or positions. This Minor Arcana card can also indicate that you are in denial or unable to see the entire truth of the situation. So be aware that you may not have all the facts you may need more information before you can make an informed decision. Try to get more facts and weigh up the pros and cons of each option, if you are struggling to figure out your next right move. In a financial context, again the Two of Swords represents difficult or stressful choices and an inability or unwillingness to see the truth. If you are having financial problems at the moment, you cannot allow yourself to be in denial about them. You may have to make some tough choices to weather the storm such as downsizing your car or tightening your belt but you can do it. Sticking your head in the sand will only add to your problems. Get professional financial advice if you are unsure of your options.

Spirituality
In a spirituality context, the Two of Swords indicates that your spiritual path is not clear to you at the moment. Finding the balance within you is the key here. When you find your own balance, you learn to tune out all the outside interference and tune into your own wisdom. If you can do this your correct path will become clear to you.

General meaning and interpretation
In a general context, the Two of Swords reversed represents indecision, delays or postponement. It indicates that fear, worry, anxiety or stress is overwhelming you and you may be experiencing emotional or mental turmoil as a result leading to an inability to make a decision. It can also represent holding onto resentment or anxiety and being overloaded with more information that you can handle. This Minor Arcana card reversed can signify someone who is overly cautious, emotionally detached, cold or guarded. Alternatively, the Two of Swords can signify being able to see the truth of a matter after a period of mental fogginess and finally being able to make a decision as a result. It can also represent lies being exposed.

Health
In a health context, the Two of Swords reversed indicates that you may be struggling with finding a healthy balance in between your emotions and your mind, which may be the root of any health issues. Overwhelming anxiety, worry or stress you could be leading to a collection of physical symptoms or just generally not feeling your best.

Love & Relationships
In a love Tarot spread, if you are in a relationship, the Two of Swords reversed indicates that you may be experiencing emotional turmoil about a decision you need to make regarding your relationship leading you to become completely indecisive. Anxiety or fear may be overwhelming you to the point that you are emotionally detaching from your partner rather than deal with the issues at hand. It also signify holding onto anxiety, problems or resentment. It may be that you are papering over the cracks in your relationship rather than dealing things and drawing a line under them, which leads to resentment. Alternatively, it can also represent finally seeing the truth of a situation after a period of being unable to move forward. If that is the case, you can now take steps in a positive direction but do so gentle at a pace that is comfortable for you and your partner, don’t force it. If you are single, the Two of Swords reversed can indicate that you may be experiencing overwhelming anxiety regarding dating which may be causing you to avoid it altogether. Perhaps you haven’t dated in a while and feel like you are out of practice or perhaps you are still processing the emotional turmoil from your last relationship or holding onto some resentment and aren’t quite ready to move forward yet. Don’t avoid the situation but be gentle with yourself. Get out and meet people without putting too much pressure on yourself to start something if you are not ready yet. Be patient and ease yourself into it. For instance, you could have casual low-key dates until you feel more comfortable such as meeting your date for a coffee or inviting your date along to a party so that it’s not a one-on-one situation.

Money & Career
In a career Tarot reading, the Two of Swords reversed indicates that a conflict at work may be causing you an overwhelming amount of stress or anxiety. It can indicate delays or postponements of projects or promotions. Alternatively, it can indicate that you are able to see a work problem clearly where you were blind to it before and you will be able to take positive steps to resolve it. This Minor Arcana reversed can indicate the truth being exposed so dodgy deals or corrupt practices may come to light that you were not aware of before. Be careful in this situation and make sure you don’t get dragged into the mud along with the culprits. In a financial context, if you have been struggling financially, the Two of Swords reversed indicates that you may be starting to realise the truth of your situation, which is a good first step to resolving it. You need to be practical and balanced in your approach. Look realistically at where you can save money or cut costs and do it.

Spirituality
In a spirituality context, the Two of Swords reversed tells you that while it is good to familiarise yourself with information on spiritual practices, there is such thing as information overload! Don’t make your spiritual path a purely academic exercise by reading every book there is to read on every spiritual practice every conceived. You have so much wisdom inside yourself.
