Victorian Romantic Tarot (Baba Studios, 2012).
In this version of the Two of
Wands, we have a woman looking out expectantly from a place high up on a
hill. She holds two large, dramatic green feathers in her hands, and
stands before some kind of structure with a woman's face carved into the
end stone. Her clothes are bright and colourful, and she wears a
golden headdress and a red ribbon that matches her sash. Above and
behind her are two tall trees and a rocky cliff face.
ways, this card has more of a Three of Wands feel to it. That sense of
waiting, of expectation, is often found in the Three, after a certain
amount of energy or dedication has already been put into a project.
Whereas I associate the Two more with choices: this plan or that plan, now or later, stay or go, big or small? In the Two,
there is still a world of possibility, waiting for us to reach out and
grasp it. I guess, in that sense, this woman's view from on high echoes
the traditional RWS figure looking out from a castle, getting the lay of
the land before making a decision.
For me, I see a suggestion here to get as much information as possible today. I have some big choices coming up, and always prefer to make them based on facts, where available. Of course, then there'll be intangibles, too. But that's what the tarot is for ;D
I am grateful for the reminder to inform myself well today.
