Two of Wands

This article was written on July 30, 2009 posted under Tarot

The Two of Wands portends something unexpected will happen or enter the picture, or loss or failure in your new enterprise.

Meaning
The Two of Wands is not an auspicious card. Something unexpected is going to happen or enter into the picture. It is something you did not or could not allow for in your plans. At the least, it will catch you by surprise. But it could mean a loss or failure in your new enterprise.

Note that some interpretations reverse this meaning entirely and claim for the Two of Wands wealth, ownership, fortune, and magnificence. But most of these include the statement that there will be unhappiness along with it.

In the Reading
Upright (or Positive): Unforeseen problems with your new enterprise. Obstacles and opposition, possibly from the very people you were counting on for support. Possibilities include loss of money, failure of a marriage or partnership, general unhappiness or discontent with the way things are going or with the new business itself. Chagrin; an apparent success that turned sour.

Reversed (or Negative): Surprise, wonder, strong feelings evoked. Youíre in for a surprise of some kind. Whether itís a good or bad one will be revealed by surrounding cards. Itís most likely to bring you trouble.†
