TWO OF SWORDS
This is a card of decisions, when put in the simplest way. It’s an indication that an important choice awaits you this year- and you better be careful about it. This would be an important choice; with implications over your beliefs about and position in your life.
I would request you to observe the picture carefully. The woman there sits with two swords-as if to protect herself-but blindfolded; and thus unable to protect herself altogether.
To know more about these choices; I added a card to each side of this one. One of them was THE LOVERS and the other was EIGHT OF SWORDS.
This card has a much deeper significance, other than the obvious indication of a couple-as depicted. This card also asks you to combine both the masculine and feminine traits –present already; inside you as well as everyone else, more or less.
So apart from saying that a new love is all set to enter your life; this card also presents you with a choice as well-between your heart’s desire and the call of duty. Though you may not even know yourself the source of this love, but its entry would be undeniable and unavoidable-and so would be the test it would bring.
You would have the two ways out-you could either take a risk, and it would have a promise for the new heights of happiness and emotional fulfillment. OR if you think the stakes are too high for you to take the risk, you can stick to your call of duty; and things would remain just the same-no losses, and definitely no gains due to refusing to rise to the opportunity.
Eight of Swords
This card is one of those where a Tarot Card Reader isn’t needed much for interpretations. We can see lady-hands bound and eyes obstructed.
This may be describing a situation where you don’t know what the situation exactly is, and how can you do anything about it. Plus you’re powerless too, when it comes to interfering effectively (your hands are tied, remember??)
Then the question is-“what can we do in such a situation??”
The answer lies, again, in the card itself. Look carefully at the figure’s feet and legs. Neither are they bound nor are any swords in front and back of her. They’re there just on her sides, obstructing movement-and/or depicting elements of danger-in those directions; and thus away from the situation. But she’s not aware of it. So she rather tries to either move sideways-look at her posture- or she tries to free her hands.
Analogically, in situations where your knowledge is inadequate and/or your powers of action are limited, plus there’s an element of danger too; it would be a better ploy to move away from the situation-at least for a while, if not permanently.
So, all in all, the Two of Swords provides you with the following options and situations:
Most probably, a new love is about to enter your life (may, or may not, be a person); and you’d know nothing about it, except that it does have promises of escalation of happiness and emotional fulfillment. You’re free to choose it, reject it or do nothing about it. If you do nothing about it, it would also require you to move away from an unfamiliar situation-which, I think, is having any kind of contact with the object or person personifying this ‘new love’ in case you decide to do nothing about it.
THE WHEEL OF FORTUNE (REVERSED)
Your fortunes are in a back gear, Your High and Mighty Majesties- retreating. The luck is about to take back what it had endowed upon you some time ago.
Coming up are the times of misfortunes and unpleasant surprises. But most of all, you will start to feel-at least a little, even if you are super-cynical-your life and its problems ‘fated’-predestined, inevitable, inescapable.
You will start to feel yourself losing control of your life, feelings and emotions. And here it lays the catch.
Though it’s beyond doubt that it is indeed the fate which is pitting problems against you, but it’s YOU-and only YOU-who can get over them-if you want to end things fast.
But there are upsides to this card too, so you need not fret too much-Too much of worry diminishes regal beings, like you undoubtedly are, to the generalized, mundane level of ordinary existence, you know.
What are they??
Firstly, this is a very temporary card; and chances are that your problems may fizz out themselves by the end of the month-though you do need to work on them if you want them to end sooner.
Good or bad; the times heralded by this card are very short-tenured. Neither does the good luck shown by it lasts much, nor the bad.
Secondly, as you already do know (and so is probably almost useless to remind you) that bad times end only when they have, at least, scraped their lowest point. And this card says that those times aren’t too far away. Soon the wheel shall rise to a high point (or at least neutral one) and all shall be well once again.
ACE OF PENTACLES
On the personal front, I think things aren't that complicated for you guys. The Ace of Pentacles represents a new opportunity for growth and development; on the material front.
But it also indicates a lot of energy-perhaps a bit too much. So the energy needs to be contained and channelized in a proper direction.
A new job or a new position within your current job/organization is also shown by this card.
