2 of Swords – 2 D’épée Tarot | Tarot de Marseille
I. The upright meaning of 2 D’épée Tarot
2 D’épée Tarot is a trading card with choices and difficulties in making decisions. Therefore, the appearance of two swords means that you are facing a difficult decision. You are trying to ignore it and you pretend to yourself and tell others that if you ignore this option long enough, it will slowly disappear. However, this decision is quite complicated. Your mind will eventually force you to face it and deal with the situation. However, you have to take the bull by the horns and identify yourself with your best intentions in full awareness of the possible consequences. Besides that, let’s try to avoid leading to bigger complications.
2 D’épée Tarot also indicates that you lack information to make good decisions. Something is burdensome to confirm as a threat, a hidden risk, an alternative or basic information. Once you are able to open your eyes and see the situation as it really is, you will be in a better position to determine the path to follow. Let’s expand the scope of possibilities, see comments and opinions from outside and ask yourself what you are missing here.
Why is this decision so difficult to implement? What additional information do you need? Since the two swords of this card are in perfect balance, it reflects the need for a better balance in your intellectual life.
You have to take a break from your usual way of thinking to start pondering other ideas and other alternative views. You also need to be more diplomatic, estimate the benefits and disadvantages of the two available options and assume that it can really be a third way to break down the issues. You may have to compromise or leave things as they are. You may disagree with other people because you have not really seen your point of view. It is necessary to have a ceasefire, where you “agree to disagree”, during that time, you either try to understand each other’s views before reaching a final solution.
Therefore, 2 D’épée Tarot is not only a potential conflict but also represents peace through a ceasefire. Similarly, the two swords can reflect the hesitation. Once again, there are many things that you try to push. At some point, you have a decision to make things happen.
The cumulative development of the central flower evokes illusions, dreams or preparation for a project – there are many possibilities for knowledge that we have not yet used. Knowledge is still in a passive position, waiting for action.

II. The reversed meaning of 2 D’épée Tarot
The reversed 2 D’épée Tarot shows that you are stuck between the hammer and the anvil and that you find it incredibly tough to make a decision on what to do. You really have trouble figuring out the right choice because all options may have negative consequences. Let’s evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of each available option and select the one that is most favorable. This card can also reveal the mental disorder caused by overload information.
You are overwhelmed by the opinions of others and by the abundance of additional information and details about the available options. At the end of the day, you will have to decide. After that, you will need to carefully consider the available advice and information to choose only the most appropriate and useful ones. The reversed 2 D’épée Tarot may mean you are in a dilemma between some roles. But in this small game, what you encounter is just chaos and stress. For example, you might be trying to reconcile the two conflicting family members but you risk being stuck in their quarrels.
You should consider if you really have the role of a peace messenger and whether you can really create peace between opposing parties; if not, get out of that situation!
The negative meaning of this card refers to the lazy mind, pessimism in awareness, two aspects of thinking and lack of concentration. We can consider it foolishness, the equitization with some recognized ideas, the need to supplement education or even hypocrisy.
