Two of Swords

A woman sits on a wooden stool with two swords crossed across her chest. Behind her, a rocky inlet is illuminated by moonlight.

My Interpretation: A balancing act.

Compromise - sometimes hard choices must be made, and indecision will only aggravate the situation. Choose the lesser of two evils, and work to minimise any damage that may be done. You have the ability to make the best of a bad situation.This card can also mean meeting a worthy adversary who will challenge you. Friendship may result once initial conflicts have been resolved.

(Reversed: Indecisiveness, falsehood. Beware of those who seek conflict for its own sake).

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've added more symbolism to assist readers and made it far more similar to the Rider-Waite card. The main difference between the is the RW card is that the woman is not blindfolded. I've never been able to reconcile the RW blindfold with the meaning of this card. Besides, her eyes are too pretty to hide :^)
