Two of Wands


Key words

Upright: aspiration, planning, exploration, prospects

Reversed: impatience, doubt, fear of change, poor planning


A person stands atop a castle, wearing a red cape and red hat. One wand is leaning against the barrier at the lip of the roof, and the other is planted firmly in the person’s left hand. In their right hand, the person holds a small globe. They look out over the globe and toward the horizon, as if planning a journey beyond the castle walls. Jagged mountains line the horizon, but the landscape appears peaceful overall. 


2: Balance, duality, cooperation, choices

Two of Wands Upright

You’re contemplating new opportunities and may be reluctant to leave your comfort zone. The whole world awaits you, but you’ll never find out what it has to offer if you don’t venture out. Making a plan will make the journey less intimidating; get a sense of the big picture and then plan out your first few steps in detail. You will run into obstacles, but you’ll overcome them easily. Those obstacles might change how you get to your final destination, but they won’t stop you from getting there. 

Two of Wands Reversed

You feel like a big fish in a small pond, and you want to see what lies beyond your comfort zone. However, you may be feeling hesitant because you doubt your abilities and you realize how easy it would be to stay put. What will you miss out on if you take the easy route? While you want to take time to form a plan, don’t stall so much that an opportunity passes you by. If you’re waiting for permission to follow your dreams… why? That permission only needs to come from within.
