The Two of Swords

. 2

Upright: balance, peace restored, truce

Reversed: conflict, difference of opinion

Swords represent military matters: strife, judicial matters, strategy and abstract thought. Twos represent combination of or balance between two forces. So the Two of Swords often represents opposing forces that have met in a (temporary) stalemate, truce, or impass. These can be internal states, like the knowledge that something must be done, versus reluctance to actually do it. It can also mean two forces or people in conflict that could work together given the right insight.
