Card #2 signifies where you are now. For example: The King of Swords shows someone with integrity and morality. You’ve taken your negative experiences and used them to improve yourself into a person that is generally good and can be trusted.
Card #3 shows an obstacle or multiple obstacles in your path. For example: The Queen of Swords represents someone that can be pessimistic. Your negative energy may be affecting your path forward and causing you issues with being able to move forward and continue on your path.
