Two of Wands

Lord of Dominion

Description and Symbolism:

 

A man stands looking out to the sea. He is holding a globe in one hand and a wand in the other. The second wand is bolted to the ground. He cannot move it. The wands seem a little unstable as both of them need help standing. These wands are not firmly rooted in the ground. The man is facing the sea and the mountains, as if he is surveying more territory he would like to conquer.

 

Both the globe and the two wands are reminiscent of the Emperor's ankh staff and his orb. The gives the man depicted in the Two of Wands a king like quality. It is no coincidence that Aries rules both the Two of Wands and The Emperor.

 

The orb was often used in coronation ceremonies that would grant the monarch rulership over his kingdom. The man in our Two of Wands depicts rulership, dominion, and authority over his empire.

 

The globe looks round and fertile and could also symbolize nurturing an idea. The globe is symbolic of having "all the world at your fingertips."

 

The Two of Wands encompasses the number two, fire, the planet Mars and the sun sign Aries. This is a good combinations of elements. Everyone of them is happy. Mars rules over Aries, so we have a natural allegiance for this card. Wands symbolize fire and this completely complements Aries and Mars' fiery nature. The Two of Wands really gets the ball rolling in a most productive way. This guy knows what he's doing, he just may need some time to think and reflect about it. He's in the part of the story where he is surveying all his land and about to make a decision about his next move.

 

In relationship to the Tree of Life, fire is at home in Chokmah/Wisdom. So we have stable and wise energy.
