Sometimes, though not always, this card indicates that your querent’s lack of action stems from them being a target of scandal or at the very least gossip. Check the cards around the Two of Spades to get a feel for what might be happening and/or who might be causing the problem.
Whatever the issue, whether a real impropriety, a false accusation or the simple inability to move forward, your querent needs to snap out of it. As with almost all of the cards in the Suit of Spades, urgency is implied at the very least. It may be that you, as the person who has been asked to give advice, will need to give your querent a pep talk. As you practice cartomancy, you’ll find this issue coming up more and more frequently. It’s challenging at first, playing coach, best friend and sibling, but with practice and understanding, you will get very good at it. Trust me. Bon Vendredi ~
