The Two of Swords is the first card in the Tarot where both upright or reversed is malignant. Upright is the more benign of the two, with the strife coming from indecision on your part. When you or your life have come to a stalemate and become stagnated, it is likely because you are being willfully blind to yourself and the people around you. I know its the easier, seemingly safer, choice to stay where you are comfortable. It requires less of you. But, to move forward, you have to see yourself and others as they are; and make a choice from there.
Reversed, there is no easy way out. It doesn't even come down to being blissfully unaware. You are aware. You are aware that you are in a situation with no good choices. This is hard, don't let anyone tell you otherwise. But, don't let yourself be stuck in indecision. Make the best choice you can so you can be free to move on. Better to have lived through something tough as hell than to be forever stuck in the middle.
Anyways, thanks for reading and let me know what you think in the comments. Bye!
