Two of Wands
Tarot Card Meaning

Two Of Wands. (Aquarian deck published by US Games) Two Of Wands. (Morgan-Greer deck published by US Games) Two Of Wands. (Universal Waite deck published by US Games)





The two of wands speaks of overseeing our dominion. And as the number two is symbolic of making choice, the card seems to ask us "Ok, I?ve gained my kingdom, now what?"

Indeed, as wands express the passion that lights up our motivation for action, the theme of this cards spurs us to tally up our inventory before we choose too hastily which action to take.

The central figure of the card is facing west, which is esoterically symbolic of seeing into the past as a means to predict our future. Simply put, the card encourages us to take stock of past events to more prudently rule over our kingdom in the future.

The card also suggests a hindrance with its presence of the brick wall (see below for symbolic meaning). However, see how our central figure firmly places one wand on top of the wall? This symbolic gesture insures our victory over obstacles.

Furthermore, the central figure grasps this wand with his left hand indicating creative, higher awareness and subconscious means should be used in dealing with potential obstacles.

The two of wands asks us to survey our surroundings, add up our assets, and then live out our driving passion from this well-educated position.

Wall: See also "brick wall" in the symbol meanings (A-C) page. Simply put, walls deal with separating one area from another. When we have a need to keep one area of our lives separate from another, the walls in the cards show themselves to us in a reading. Take a close look at the context of the "wall cards" in relation to the rest of the reading - what are the cards indicating you separate? Walls also deal with the need for privacy, this may be another consideration in your reading. View other cards with walls in them.

Rose: A long-standing symbol of purity, promise, and beauty. The rose symbol meanings deal with the promise of new beginnings and hope. We must also take the thorns into consideration - with the promise of new hope, we may have to endure a few stinging thorns (painful ordeals) along the way. Overall, the rose is a poignant symbol of the beauty that is ready to unfold within each of our hearts, and a reminder that we must take the opportunity to savor the beauty around us.
