Two Of Swords – Gilded Tarot Deck
I. Meaning of the Two of Swords Gilded Tarot
On the Two of Swords Gilded Tarot, there is a woman who is blindfolded with a yellow bandage. Two swords crossed in front of the moon. The woman is suffering from a contradiction between her intellect and the less rational and intuitive aspects of herself. Ironically, her face takes on a calm expression, as if she is unaffected by this conflict. Perhaps she chooses to turn a blind eye to this situation. Unlike The High Priestess Gilded Tarot, the card numbered II of the Major Arcana, this woman is not one to show a fluidity between intellect and intuition. She is not tied up and shows no progress at all. The battle between the head and the heart continues to stalemate.
