When pulled upright this card is about a stalemate. There are two people, ideas, situations, what have you, that are clashing right now. Neither are getting anywhere due to this. When you started on your journey down the path that led you here you had not foreseen an issue such as this. You probably are finding that you’re caught right in the middle. If nothing or no one sorts this out this stalemate could continue indefinitely. You need to choose between one or the other, despite the fact that neither probably sound all that desirable. As soon as you make this decision though you will be able to progress on your journey. You may also find that this card is about balance and partnerships. It is reminding us that we need to keep our relationships balanced. Regardless of what type of relationship it is, business, platonic, romantic, etc you find yourself struggling to maintain them. If this a reading about work this card suggests you are stuck in limbo and seem to be waiting on the decisions of others. Remember to stay patient and don’t pressure this person into rushing their decision. This card could also be warning you to be cautious. You may find that you are trying to stay ignorant of the situation hoping that if you don’t acknowledge it it’ll go away. This card is reminding you to stop avoiding your problems as this will not fix them.
When pulled in reverse this card is about a much more intense stalemate. It is like 2 forces are battling each other. This could be an external battle or an internal one, but regardless you are being forced to be the tie breaker. You may find that neither party are easy to work with which may be making it hard for you to make your decision. Whenever you do make the decision it will be a decision between two bad outcomes. The important part is to just make the choice because you will be able to deal with what consequences it brings.
Here is a spread to help you make your decision in your stalemate. First I would take out the two of swords and meditate on it while thinking about the 2 choices that you have before you. Then shuffle and pull using your preferred method.
