The Two of Wands

. 2

Upright: decision, initial success, self-doubt

Reversed: indecision, disillusionment, anticlimax

The Ace of Wands symbolizes the beginning of a new enterprise; the Two can mean you are thinking about how to take the next step—a time for assessing the progress so far and deciding which path to take to success. The suit often refers to one’s work or career, so the next ‘step’ might be a promotion, perhaps with an element of self-doubt as you consider whether you can cope with the new responsibilities. It can also symbolize other personal aims and ambitions.

I have symbolized the decision as a fork in the road. The path behind the figure shows the progress made already. The early-morning sky shows that the journey has just started.
