Two of Wands Tarot Card Meaning
The Two of Wands Upright represents the planning stages of an idea. You hold the potential of the world in your hands, what will you do with it? You have big goals and you may have accomplished much, but you still want more. At this time, you are looking at your options and weighing them carefully. It’s not yet time to make your move.
The Two of Wands can also indicate success in a scientific or artistic field, where you can be creative and innovative. You may be planning a career switch to one of these fields, but you can’t be hasty. Further planning is required to be successful.
This is not a card about sitting still. This is a card about planning to move forward. You’ve achieved success so far in what you are doing, but it’s time to move forward and step out of your comfort zone.
Two of Wands Reversed Tarot Card Meaning
The Two of Wands reversed warns that things may have started off in the right direction, but are no longer in alignment with your goals. Things may have gotten rushed due to the excitement. Take a moment to calm down and re-align with your goals and continue to move forward with patience. Good things take time to flourish.
If things have gotten completely off track, it’s time to go back to the drawing board. Sometimes the things that we think we want in the short term don’t always line up with our long term goals.
If you have a good idea, you may be moving forward without a plan. This is not the time to “wing it”. Take time to create a plan so that you can achieve your goals instead of spending your energy on things that don’t align with the goal.
The Two of Wands reversed can also signify that you are hesitant to step out of your comfort zone to achieve your goals. If you only stick with what you know and things that are comfortable, you are preventing your ability to grow and succeed elsewhere.
In reverse, the Two of Wands can also signify that you are moving forward with a lot of enthusiasm, but you are solely focused on yourself. You may find yourself acting only in your own best interest, and not worrying yourself with the interests (best or not) of others.
