Tarot 101: Two of Wands…

Two of Wands

The Two of Wands is the second card the suit of Wands. Wands coincide with action and fire.

In the card, we can see a man, looking over a land. He holds a globe in one hand and a staff (or wand, I guess) in the other. The background shows a mountain on one side and an expanse of water, and what looks like a little town in the corner.

So what does the Two of Wands mean when it pops up?

Twos represent choices or decisions. You can see the man thinking about something, even weighing his decision, as he holds the world in his hand. With Wands representing actions, we can infer that the man is trying to trying to decide between two actions, or two decisions that will results in different actions.

Two of Wands Reversed

When the Two of Wands comes up reversed, we should take caution in what actions we decide on. Although this card doesn’t seem negative when reversed, a common theme with reversed cards is caution or reflected themes of the upright card. So with this card, while not forewarning of backfiring actions, should still be taken as warning of actions, because you hold the world in your hand with your decision.

Things to remember about the Two of Wands

  • Wands coincide with action, fire, and days. I, personally, feel like Wands are more closely aligned with fire, wind, and weeks, but what do I know, right?
  • Twos commonly represent decisions or choices. You may also feel that Twos represent duality, or balance, which is also how this card can pop up.
  • If asking a yes/no question, this card feels like a strong Maybe to me. It may have a different vibe for you.
