11/26/13: What Can I Expect? / 2 of Swords

Sometimes when I’m trying to make a decision, I close my eyes and consider each option, looking for a small, physical tug one way or another.

Yes, in public. Nobody notices this ever. Neptune reassured me.

Sometimes I’ll get a tug to one side. Sometimes I get a tug backward (i.e. it doesn’t matter, Dixie). Sometimes, I get nothing. I think that’s when my Spiritual GPS gets bored with my shenanigans, needlessly obsessing over the utterly insignificant.

“Happiness is a choice that requires effort at times.” –Aeschylus

In this traditional (albeit glittered up) version of the Two of Swords, a lady-justice-style blindfolded woman carefully weighs options. Those swords look heavy and by her posture, I’d say she’s quite attentive to weighing those options impartially. Hello, Libra!

I’m not seeing it as a division between right and wrong right now. Asking Tarot “Should I?” isn’t going to cut it today.

Rather, ask “What can I expect if…?” That will give you far more useful insight. Your decisions are your own. So man (or woman) up and make them.

What’s more, there is not one true, right path to your ultimate destiny. Some decisions are important and worthy of considered attention. But whatever path you take holds lessons. Look at each option facing you impartially, understanding all the while you have responsibility for choosing yourself.

And that happiness thing? It’s a lot less dependent upon what paths you take than the glasses of perception you use to look upon the path you walk.

Do you obsess over choices?

  1. I do obsess.

    This is reminding me of my Druidcraft deck – it has a beautiful 2 of swords.

    Libra Sun, Moon, Jupiter, Mars.
    Ummmm….Yes. Yes I do. LOL!

    Happy Turkey Day, Dixie! Much love to you and yours….

  3. Amen, Dixie! It’s all about perception. I was so happy to see one of your glittered up cards. They’re very cool. Happy Thanksgiving. You’re one of the things I’m thankful for.

Shine Thy Light!
