The Spacious Tarot, Two of Swords

It looks like there is a decision to be made this week. However, it doesn’t matter how long we stare at a list of pros and cons, this approach isn’t going to yield the answers we are hoping for.

The swords represent two deeply entrenched views at odds with each other. This can be two individuals “crossing swords”, two ideologies which clash, or opposing and conflicting attitudes within ourselves. Whichever scenario, the swords are deeply rooted in the bedrock of the mountain, immovable and hard to reconcile.

However, the small plant in the foreground is a symbol of hope that a way through can be found. The plant has survived and thrived by being flexible. When it has come up against stony ground it has changed direction and grown around the obstacles placed in it’s path. By taking a meandering path instead of trying to force things, it has triumphed and survived the challenging terrain.

The ocean also symbolises the emotional and feeling realm. It suggests that simply trying to intellectualise, and come to a rational solution is not the answer here. This situation also requires us to feel our way through it, by engaging our heart and soul in the process too. By doing this we will find a way forward, as evidenced by the sun just starting to rise in the background of the picture.

Until next week,

Are you finding it impossible to make a decision this week? It’s as if you’ve mentally made a list of the pros and cons, but reached a stalemate as you can see advantages and disadvantages for both sides of the argument. It seems as if you just can’t get sufficient clarity on the subject to feel confident either way, and confusion reigns supreme. It’s that unenviable situation where you feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. Instead of using logic and the rational mind to attempt to work out the best way forward, turn this dilemma over to your heart. What feels right? Follow this!

Daily Card ~ Two of Swords

You could feel as if you are at a crossroads today and a difficult decision must be made. You can see pros and cons on both sides which makes it even trickier to ascertain the way forward. Normally I am an advocate of following your heart but today I feel a balance is required between head and heart, gut feeling and rational analysis of the situation. It is important however to go within and seek your own answer to this dilemma. Don’t be unduly influenced by the opinions of others.
