The Two of Swords

TwoOfSwords

I’ve decided to start my own Tarot design project over on DeviantArt using the Miku Miku Moving program. Please let me know what you think!

Not to worry, I’ll continue to feature the series I started with in the links below.


Today we’re featuring and exploring the Two of Swords, the second card of the Sword Suit in the Minor Arcana.

So take a look at these four cards on DeviantArt and compare them to the first one I presented. How are they the same? How are they different? What do they say to you?

Take your time. Let them “speak” to your soul and mind.

What This Card Means to Me

This card has personal meaning to me. Swords in general tend to pop up often in readings for me, but this one in particular. And I do often find myself feeling stuck in whatever situation I’m in, but usually the answer is a simple one if only I’m willing to open my eyes to see it. And why can’t I see it? Because usually I’m too busy pretending everything is just fine.

Avoidant behavior is also something I’m guilty of, but things will not correct themselves. I need to face it and address it. Directly.


The Music Playlist

In the spirit of all this, these are the songs picked out thus far for this card.

The Writing Prompt

Now as a writer with everything we’ve gone over with this card what comes to mind? Start writing! Doesn’t matter what it is. Stretch your mind and let The Two of Swords speak to you.

I would love it if you linked or pinged back what you wrote so I could see where you went with this.

Happy writing!
