The number two in numerology represents balancing, duality, equalization, crossroad or choice and partnership.
Some key words for the two of swords are indecision, stagnation, blocked emotions, choices and stalemate.
The two of swords usually indicates in a reading that some type of difficult or painful decision needs to be made. Instead, the individual knowingly refuses to make a decision choosing instead to keep both aspects of the decision equally balanced until a decision is made.
When the two of swords appears reversed in a reading, it indicates that the balance of not making the decision has been lost and as a result mental confusion can occur. The individual may find themselves caught between a rock and hard place and may choose not to make a decision, happily staying in a state of indecision. Stagnation!
