What does The Two of Wands tarot card mean?
The Two of Wands tarot card reveals itself as your life begins to fall into place.
Unlike the Ace of Wands which indicates that it is time for you to trust your intuition and rediscover yourself, the Two of Wands tarot card indicates that it is time to place your future in your own hands.
When this card is dealt face up, you are ready to put your plans into action.
It’s time for that idea you’ve been thinking about to be put aside as you set out to make it happen.
You are beginning to understand your long-term plan and you are ready to move forward and take on new and exciting risks.
Almost in stark contrast, the reversed Two of Wands card suggests that you need to formulate a long-term plan for your life.
It’s time to ask yourself what is important to you and what you value or plan for your future.
The Two of Wands tells you to put a plan in place that will lead you to that place of peace and happiness.
This card indicates that you are impatient with your goals and aspirations, and that you are overconfident in what the future holds.
If you are not beginning to feel your emotions, this card suggests that you may feel a sense of helplessness in your journey.
