The Two of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
Your insights and accomplishments have prepared you to take some bold, but calculated risks.
You know you’ve already come a long way when you see the Two of Wands. As you stand behind your castle’s battlements, your authority and wealth can be seen for miles. From here, you can easily survey the rich towns and fertile lands or your domain.
The staff behind you on the Two of Wands tarot card is securely fastened to one of the battlements. It shows that you have used your talents wisely.

It’s a conundrum.

Upright Two of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
The Two of Wands is a card of accomplishment, opportunity, and risk. The Two of Wands is the sign that you are ready to take the creative spark of inspiration from the Ace of Wands and ignite it!
Right now, you’re in very good shape, and the outlook for the future is promising. But where things will actually go depends on you.
You’ve put yours skills and talents to good use. That’s how you got to where you are. Even better, you’re a long way from running out of steam. In fact, you are feeling restless and bored.
Maybe you’re even a little lonely. Some of your old friends haven’t been able to keep up with the breakneck speed at which you’ve raced to the top. In this sense, your success has cut you off from the rest of the world.
Or is it that you’re ready to move on to bigger and better things?
The good news is that you have what it takes. Even better, others are taking notice, and some excellent opportunities are coming your way. To move forward, it’s important that you have done your homework and are willing to go the distance. Remember, it takes at least ten years to become an overnight sensation.
For example, you may think about quitting your job so you can start a business. Having a great concept, talent, and the right opportunities are the minimum requirements. You already have them. A well thought-out business plan, however, can spell the difference between success beyond your wildest dreams and failure. While you can always clock out at the end of your shift at your day job, running a business often means putting in extra hours to get the job done.
Working out all the details and keeping the big picture in mind will do much to tip the scales in your favor. If your vision of greatness is still just a vague idea, you will still need to spend more time hammering out the details.
The Two of Wands tarot card also suggests that you have made a commitment to bettering your life. Perhaps you’re thinking about going back to school. Or you’ve decided to change old thinking patterns that have been holding you back.
Look to the future. Jump into action when you’re ready.

If you’ve been bored lately, things are about to get exciting very soon. Be prepared for anything. More importantly, have fun!
When the Two of Wands is reversed, it’s a good time to review your priorities and long term goals. Are they in line with who you really are? This tarot card is a much less dramatic version of The Tower.
It’s actually more like Mom ripping up your favorite t-shirt because it looks like a 3-D model of a Swiss cheese. While it’s happening, it may feel like an extinction level disaster – but you do have 567 other shirts in your closet.
It’s only as bad as you want it to be.
On a broader scale, the reversed Two of Wands challenges you to examine and overcome your fears. It encourages you to take risks that will profit you in all aspects of your life.
For example, a not-so-embarrassing mishap may nudge you into a conversation with someone you’ve been attracted to – but were too shy to approach.
