The sword two
The word of the creator of the linetrider tarot:
Choice, indecision, incomplete information, denial, courage, friendship, deadlock, stagnation.
The sword two is a card that announces difficult decisions. It usually shows a woman wearing a blindfold. I chose to draw a hooded falcon; a powerful and fast animal, but that cannot move because it is temporarily blinded. The blindfolded character cannot see or acknowledge the facts that are required of him, or he might try to delay the time to make a choice. The blindfold can also mean that you don't have all the facts you need to move forward. Sometimes this card might indicate that someone else "leaves you in the dark" If you remove the blindfold and face the facts, problems and consequences of your actions, you will be in a better position to make a decision.
When this card appears in a reading, the time has come to evaluate and make choices. To do this, you will need to open your eyes and honestly consider your options or challenges, use your intellect and take stock of your gains and losses. Procrastination or delay will not make difficult decisions go away. It is time to take matters into our own hands, to choose a path and to move forward. This map appeals to the mind and the cold power of the intellect rather than the heart. You need to analyze the situation, consider all the pros and cons of the options before you, and make a decision based on the facts. Many important decisions often involve sacrifice and suffering. Now is not the time to be emotional about your choices. The balance sword two requires you to make the right decisions quickly and approach them in a pragmatic way.
This card does not usually carry light or gay messages and, upside down, it evokes lies, betrayals or blindness. You may also be stuck between two people or two difficult options. Since you do not know all the facts, you cannot clearly see all aspects of the situation and you believe that any action could lead to harmful consequences. In this case, you may need to move away from this situation. To do this, you need to withdraw and take a higher rational perspective where you can take the blindfold out of your eyes and get an overview of the situation. This card could warn that you are being manipulated, that facts are hidden from you or that someone is obstructing you in rational decision-making. The moon in the image symbolizes intuition."
