What does the Two of Swords mean?

August 28, 2017 is a pithy meaning for the Two of Swords:
Beware of making a “convenience decision.”

You’re probably wondering what a “convenience decision” is. This is when we think we’re making a logical decision, but in reality we are choosing the option that best suits our convenience. Here’s an example:

When I was six years old my parents decided that my oldest brother, who was twelve at the time, was old enough and mature enough to be left in charge when they went out for the evening. (He wasn’t.) Consequently, they were able to stop using my grandmother (who neither of them really liked) as a babysitter.  They thought they were making a rational decision, when in fact they were making a choice that suited their desire to stop being dependent on my grandmother.

So this pithy meaning warns us that when a decision nicely fits our desires—when it is the convenient choice—it may not be as rational as we want to think.
