Discussion

The Robin Wood Tarot focusses on our wealthy character and shows his looking far out to sea. The castle walls are higher in this card, does this show his malady that Arthur Waite talks about? The Llewellyn Tarot has a much stronger feel to it. The woman holds not a world but a globe, parallel to the distant sun – aligning it to her will perhaps? The Tarot of the New Vision shows us the Rider Waite-Smith character from the front of the castle and so we see behind him, and a jester, dejected and inactive. Is the character so lost in his thoughts, his dreams & vision that he is blinded by them to the expense of those around him?

We associate the 2 of Wands with such domination and control and yet rarely do we see the malady that Arthur Waite talks of in the Pictorial Key. And yet if we look at our character, rich as he is in all he can survey, as Alexander did, he is trapped by it also, in his stone castle- is this the reason for his malady? Is the 2 of Wands equal also to being a victim of your success?

We have seen themes of choice, of control and dynamism – what does the 2 of Wands say to you?

The Two of Wands as a Daily Tarot Card

This is a great day to push your plans forward. Partnerships of any kind, and working closely with others are all well indicated. Your will is your driving force and greatest ally, don’t be swayed from doing what you believe is right.

On a purely personal level, the dreams you’ve thought of for so long, the desire to change your lot can become real when you embody this power. Anything that requires your effort and personal input is a worthy contender and is likely to succeed.

As a side note, be careful that you don’t become overbearing today as the Two of Wands energy can easily become domineering and overbearing. While you’re at full throttle, others may not be. Make sure you stay mindful of the difference in energies between yourself and friends, family and co-workers.

Travel can also be associated with this card, so if the opportunity arises, make sure you take it – particularly if it’s in conjunction with your plans and goals.

You have a green light to go on all projects that capture your heart and mind.

How will you seize the day?
