The Two of Swords ~ Lay Down Your Sword!
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Two of Swords, representing: Peace, clarity, balance and friendship. The Two of Swords indicates a truce; this could come in the form of a new understanding between you and another, an intentional respite from challenging situations, or embracing a renewed sense of serenity within your own being.
This card often shows up when you are struggling with making a decision. On one hand, your mind is saying “do this” and on the other, your heart says “no, do that”. The Two of Swords encourages you to find a balance between the two—your mind and your heart. When these two seemingly opposite elements come together in friendship, a powerful alchemy occurs. The result is a profound spiritual balance. The way you engage this alchemy is through your intuition. This is the true voice of your heart.
The Two of Swords calls you to “lay down your sword”. To surrender the conflicts and discord in your life, and be at peace. By doing so you will experience a welcomed clarity. Whenever possible, extend the olive branch of peace to others. You may be surprised at how this gesture is reciprocated, bringing even more balance and harmony into your life.
