Two of Swords

Card No s2


Conformity and the equipoise which it suggests, courage, friendship, concord in a state of arms; another reading gives tenderness, affection, intimacy. The suggestion of harmony and other favourable readings must be considered in a qualified manner, as Swords generally are not symbolical of beneficent forces in human affairs.

Additional Meaning

Gifts for a lady, influential protection for a man in search of help.


Imposture, falsehood, duplicity, disloyalty.
