The Two of Wands tarot card meanings

The main character of the card Two of wands is a man in a fiery red robe and hat in the center. He holds the globe in his hand that says about his ambitions and opportunities to conquer the world. However, he stands inside his castle which means a comfort zone, which he still could not leave, and the planning phase before the real actions. His left hand is relaxed and holds the wand beside. Exactly the same stick is located on the right and fixed to the wall. This can be interpreted as unpreparedness for the big world. The background is very diverse, and you can see the mountains far away, which mean obstacles to success.

2 of wands general meaning


The Two of Wands takes the enthusiasm and creativity from the Ace of Wands and transfers the idea from a spark into the planning phase.

The Two of Wands reversed can also mean that you are trying to realize an idea without a proper plan. As a result, you work a lot, but you still cannot achieve what you want.

Formulate your vision of the future and conquer new territories to achieve the goal.
