The man in the Two of Wands is holding a small globe and stands on the roof of a castle, looking out over a vast terrain to the right and an ocean to the left. The globe in his hands represents that the world is his oyster and there is huge potential if he can expand his horizons to encompass broader life experiences. He understands his ambition and knows what is to be. He is wearing an orange tunic, which symbolizes an enthusiastic approach to life, and a red hat, symbolizing a passion for adventure.

The Two of Wands is all about planning and progressing – time is come to taking decisions – between sticking with what you know – and expanding your horizons taking a risk.

You have been able to take your idea and turn it into a feasible plan that you know will lead to your success. It is no longer just an idea but you now have a plan in place to ensure that your idea is carried out as you had intended.

The Two of Wands is also about discovery, particularly as you step outside of your comfort zone and explore new worlds and new experiences. It may take some courage to take the first step but this card gives you the confidence of self-knowledge.

The Two of Wands in a tarot reading, indicates:

  • You will begin to consider your longer-term goals and aspirations and
  • Will plan ahead for what you need to do to achieve these goals.

You have already come so far. Since, now you feel it is ready for a change and this time with your long-term future in mind. You may be considering overseas travel, further education or a major career change at this point in order to expand your learning and development, and to grow your horizons beyond your immediate environment.

The Two of Wands in a tarot reading, can also stand for an extra dose of daring and inventiveness.


  • Having personal power, on command,
  • Directing those around you, having authority,
  • Being able to achieve your goals,
  • Taking a risk, taking the initiative,
  • Taking the bull by the horns, being a pioneer.
