Card meaning

The story of the Two of Wands is one of personal power as you focus the flaming ambition of the Ace. The red and white flowers are a nod to the Magician, as this is a card of manifestation brought down to a more manageable level.

The two wands serve as a means to set goals and focus on where you want to go. Now is the time to make a move without hesitation, knowing that there is time to course correct later if you find yourself on an unwanted path.

Note that this is a card about self-direction. It is your own ambition that drives you toward your goals. It is not a time to be managed by others or to delegate your responsibilities, especially when those responsibilities are part of your creation and vision. Sometimes there ARE just things you can do better yourself. The Two of Wands is a great card to symbolize friendships or partnerships, but beware of any relationship where the bulk of the power lies in the hands of one person.
