The woman is not only blindfolded, but she holds 2 swords crossed before her. There is no movement in this card, Symbolically, the 2 of Swords is a card of not taking any action. The dark sky and the blindfold suggest the answers are not from the external world. You may receive your answers from the dream world or from going within instead. Proceed with caution at this time.
