Two of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
Just as the Ace begins something, the Two follows and leads to a sense of continuity. The Two of Wands can show that you’re starting to make initial progress, usually with something in the early stages of development. The two Wands are fixed in the ground as the man moves toward them, representing the idea or new beginning from the Ace starting to take root and become established.
The Two of Wands is the main card I would look for to indicate a working partnership, although this doesn’t always need to be in a formal or contractual sense; the two brings a second energy into play and this can be negotiations or cooperating with others, as you join and combine your energy and talents together. (A number of Tarot readers see the Three of Wands as the card of partnership or working with others. The Two naturally evolved into this meaning for me through the experience of studying results from readings.)
In the Gilded Tarot the forked path often makes people consider the meaning to be connected to a choice, although I usually see that as within the progress as someone moves forward, rather than the primary meaning.
If reversed or ill-dignified, can represent stalled plans, or could indicate a troublesome working relationship with (an)others.
