How to Read the 2 of Spades:

Traditionally the 2 of Spades represents a restriction or “feeling stuck,” and a removal or separation necessary to move forward.  All 2′s bring news, and with the 2 of Spades it’s usually bad news.

The number 2 symbolizes exchanges, and when influenced by the Suit of Spades, it denotes conflict, betrayal, violent arguments, misunderstandings, and malicious gossip.

The 2 of Spades can represent guilt, suppressed anger, feelings of resentment, and “holding a grudge.” It can denote vindictiveness, or harmful retaliation for any real or imagined slight.

My grandmother called this card “La Spaggadura,” which means “rift” or “break” in Italian dialect.   The number 2 symbolizes agreements, compatibility and partnerships, but with the influence of the Suit of Spades, the 2♠ represents disagreements, incompatibility, and broken partnerships.

The 2♠ can indicate a break up, or losing touch with someone.  It can denote leaving a job, getting rid of a car, or spending a large sum of money and feeling guilty about it. The separation can be of a temporary or permanent nature based on the circumstances and the surrounding cards.

Card Multiples:

Twos in multiples can mean double the fun or double the trouble. They can represent things coming in twos–couples, twins, socks, shoes, etc.

Two 2s: Things coming in pairs.

Three 2s: Can indicate lots of activity and everything happening at once.

Four 2s: Teamwork, co-operation, group activity.

Card Combinations:

Face Card + 2♠ = someone leaving the querent’s life.

3♠ + 2♠ = walking out on an argument, and holding a grudge.

4♥ +  2♠ = a marital separation or the dissolution of a partnership.

6♠2♠ = an abandoned vehicle, or getting rid of a car.
