Two of Wands, being the second card of the Wands Suit, carries all the qualities of number 2, which in a psychic reading translates to reflection, balance, opposites, decisions, duality, union, difficult choices, offers.
Two of Wands Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawing, the Two of Wands may come up upright, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards.
Some don’t. Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings, because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of number “Two” and the qualities of the “Wands Suit,” the Two of Wands card would represent:
|Commanding attention and respect||Being an influencer|
|Showing authority and being a leader||The world is in your hands|
|Taking life as it comes||Daring to take risks|
|Standing your ground||Seizing the day, facing your fears|
|Doing what others won’t dare to||Having your style|
|Taking on a holistic approach|
In a reverse position, the Two of Wands would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Being afraid to make your own choices||Not being fulfilled by your reality|
|Wanting to go, but having to stay||Your options are not in your hands|
|Someone else is directing your future||Your road is blocked|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the Two of Wands would sit in a horizontal position, it advises you to be in your presence. It may come as a result of you being indecisive, too emotional, or just wanting to choose a path or a line of working just because everyone is doing it, and not because you want it.
It says that you don’t have your steps figured out, you don’t really know what you want, so instead of messing around and losing even what you possess at the moment, it would be wiser to be in the present, and figure out your situation later, when you are not in your head or heart that much.
Two of Wands – One card pull [Yes or No]
One Card Reading are for when you need a fast, straight to the point answer. You wish not to see the future events or past events.

Whichever method you use to pull the card, listed below are some of the questions and answers you may get when you pull the Two of Wands.
Yes or No Answer
Upright Position: If you pull the card in an upright position, it means Yes, you should go the path you have chosen, or Yes, your lover has chosen you, or Yes, you should get the job offered.
Reversed Position: If you pull the card in a reversed position, it still means Yes because it’s a Wands Suit card, but there is some blockage, for example: Yes, your lover loves you, but he or she is feeling restricted in this relationship, or Yes, you will be the chosen candidate for a job, but it may not fulfill every need you have financially or professionally, or Yes, your lover is cheating on you, but not exactly the way you think.
Two of Wands – Love and Relationships
If your question would be how someone sees you or feels about you, how the relationship is going, or where will it be in a year, the Two of Wands is quite an attractive card to pull.
If you pull the Two of Wands upright, it is not one of the best cards to pull in such questions, because it means that your partner wants out of this relationship and is considering leaving you. It may also mean your partner has been cheating on you. But it is more likely for your partner to be thinking about taking the relationship to another level by proposing to you. In this case, you want to pull more cards to clarify the answer.
If he’s cheating, you may see the Three of Swords or Three of Cups, and if he’s about to propose, you may see the Two of Cups, Ten of Cups, Ten of Pentacles, or The Two of Wands drawn upright to affirm, as it also means traveling.
What not to do?
In this case, it would advise you not to settle in a relationship you are not happy with. If you have dreamed your whole life for the perfect home, family, lover, and this is not that, don’t stop looking yet. It may also advise you to stop entertaining more than one partner, or your partner is not the right person for you, so don’t take it to the next level.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
If you pull the Two of Wands, reversed, it means your romantic and relationship needs are not being fulfilled. Either one of you has settled in this relationship because it is the safest bet. It can be for financial reasons, religion, tradition, children, whatever.
Two of Wands – Finance, Business and Career
Pulling the Two of Wands on financial questions would possibly mean that you are considering to switch profession or switch jobs. If you have your business idea, you are genuinely considering quitting your actual job. It is an excellent card to pull when you want to move forward with your dreams because it means that you will also succeed. It may even mean that even though you have not thought about changing jobs, an event will present new opportunities to you, or you may be obligated to find another job, but it will work out well for you.
This could also mean that you will soon be doing two jobs or having multiply sources of income.
What not to do?
The Two of Wands in an upright position would mean not to take the road less traveled, to hold back on the adventure you’ve planned for yourself, because this may not be the right time, or you may not have everything figured out. The Two of Wands would advise you to take the new job. It is what you’re probably supposed to do. Also, do not be afraid to follow your passion. Maybe you want to be an entrepreneur and quit your 9-5 job, do that.
Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
The Two of Wands, in reverse, would mean that you are stuck wherever you are. There may be situations like a relationship or family responsibilities, or just not having the gut to make the change, and these are holding you down. It may not even be the best time to make a change, so you will have to sit it out for a while.
Two of Wands – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Two of Wands, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest pretty soon. How soon is that? It would be kind of complicated because it would mean springtime, of a Zodiac Sign season Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
It would also be counted in days or months, which would mean one month later, or around the 2nd, 11th, 20th, or 29th of the upcoming month.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming pretty soon. From there, you would figure out the time. For example, if it is summertime when you are doing the reading, it would not indicate that your desire will manifest in spring. The highest possibility is that it would manifest during Leo Season or the upcoming month.
Other times that is much easier than that because you are pulling the number “Two” it would mean in 2 days, in 2 weeks, or 2 months. In Tarot or any other divination works, it is rare to foretell the future in years because the choices we make along the way alter that future a lot.
Two of Wands – The Message Answer
Sometimes, we don’t have a specific question. We just want to know how our day will look like, or how we should approach the day ahead. This reading is best performed in the morning, so you form an idea of what that day will bring you.
If you pull the Two of Wands upright, it may mean that you are one step closer to fulfilling your goals. A situation happening that day will offer a new approach, perspective, or a new acquaintance will help you out. It may also mean that you will receive an offer, or an event will take place that day which will push you to quit your job, break a relationship, or even say Yes to that marriage proposal.
If you pull the Two of Wands in reverse, it may mean that your day will be kind of disappointing, lacking on motivation, or that project you have been working on for a long time will see a setback.
