Appease or Confront

Daily Draw: Druidcraft Tarot ~ 2 of Swords

Appease or confront?

I'm reminded by this card how often we stand at this path over the course of a lifetime. We can go along to get along, we can run away to live to fight another day, we can order our thoughts and marshal our feelings and say our piece and live with the results, or we can leap up and go in with pinwheeling fists or words and likely get the same and achieve nothing. The ancient Ent has seen it all before and is having a slow chuckle at our expense. On the other hand we can get up and move, we aren't pinioned in place except by choice.

"One sure way to conciliate a tiger is to allow oneself to be devoured." ~ Konrad Adenauer 1876-1967

  1. This card is one of my favourite images from the Druidcraft.It is very evocative and sums up how paralysed we can feel when confronted with a choice.

  2. This is one of the most beautiful Two of Swords cards to me. Even the tree's branches seem to point along the various paths.

I welcome your thoughts. Good bad or indifferent; opinions are the lifeblood of conversation and I always learn something from anyone with a new point of view. Thank you for visiting, Sharyn
