Tarot Post – Two of Wands

Two of Wands (Dominion)

 

 

Two of WandsTarot-Two of Wands (Revised) by G A Rosenberg

 

Two lives have I
and two meanings
Either will give me joy
The life of the city
excites and pleasures
with worlds to conquer
and pretties to taste
The life of the world
nature’s quietude
offers beauty and peace
like nothing I’ve known

 

How can I decide
Between living and life
How do I choose
Between my two worlds
In indecision I languish
with no action I’m weak
I must choose a course
NOW…well this week…
— G A Rosenberg

 

Having conquered all
I must choose a direction
Where is left to go?

 

 

Wands deal with force, creative, spiritual, and vital.  Twos deal with dualities and choices. When faced with the other do we fight it, love it, choose it or balance it?  In the case of the two of wands, we have used our force and we have accomplished. Now we are faced with a choice. Do we go forward into something new or do we stay with what we have already accomplished. Which road should we take. With the two of wands there is that frustration of needing the action that is denoted by the wands but facing the inaction of choosing.

 

Astrological Correspondence:  Mars in Aries – Mars in Aries is in its native sign and is all afire. It is a lot of quick energy seeking to take action and very impulsive. It will choose to do this, then this , then this, whether fighting , engaging in sex or conquering, it wants to go, go go..All kind of energy to make things happen but not necessarily attentive to details… So it may start one thing, than another than… but which one to continue? AARRGGH, forget it let’s just start something new. What happens then when there is nothing left to start?

This hexagram has the trigram of the Creative under or subservient to the trigram for Keeping Still. It refers to the Creative Force held in check. Success can come with any course of action once it is decided on.

 

When the two of wands comes up in a reading it normally refers to things going rather well for the querent tho there may be some serious question as to which path to take next. Making any choice in this situation is better than hesitating. Another way will always come up . It is better to go ahead now that you have momentum and energy on your side. And that you have in abundance

When the two of wands is reversed, it can show that one is hesitating over making a decision out of fear or apathy. It can also mean that a choice has been made but the follow-up just is not happening

 

 

 

Tarot Card of the Day- December 6 2009

Chokmah in Earth
Jupiter in Capricorn

The other day I was watching a juggler balancing on a unicycle and juggling plates. I could relate for I too juggle on what seems at times an equally unsteady pedestal.
On the one hand my family and practical existence. At a time in my life when I had given up on steadiness, given up on love, I met someone who transformed my existence. Together we became married, we’ve raised kids, bought the house, have too many pets. We’ve worked hard to get to this point and there is always more to do. Joy and Satisfaction is there for the taking…at the right times and places and yet…
This year, my spirit has soared. New avenues to explore. New aspects of godhood to love. I feel freer, more awake and more alive than I have felt before. Creatively, I write, I create art. Ideas and expression flow through me like some kind of divine river that I just wish to surrender and el it carry me off. Teachers, Students and friends are there to join me on the journey. and yet…

The garbage needs to be taken out, The kid needs to be dressed. The dog needs to be walked “Oh by the way, we’re going to the movies today, be ready at two.”
It’s not as if I begrudge my family the time. They are my foundation. Anything I have done has been an outgrowth of their love and support. And yet…

Meditation, , a blog that needs updating., and something new and wonderful to share.
How do I keep my balance without falling off of this thing?

Chȇn Thunder over K’un Earth– It is the strong fourth line that pulls all the other weak lines with it by din of its Ashe (personal power, charisma, flow), Movement. Leading people in the direction you want along the path of least resistance. To determine this, the great man or leader has to balance what he needs done with the most likely way the people he leads will flow….

Jupiter in Capricorn is an interesting study in balance–Jupiter expands in a cheerful optimistic way that looks towards the future. Capricorn moves slowly, carefully and tends to be about learning the lessons from the past. The combination of the two can bring success but only through hard work to methodically balance things out….

In readings: This card is variously referred to as either change or harmony and it tends to be a dynamic one. Movement is needed to keep the two disks moving. Likewise, when balancing different aspects of our lives and relationships we can’t expect to rest on our laurels, we need to constantly adjust according to feedback in order to keep things harmonious. When the card is upright or positively aspected, things are flowing smoothly
Reversed in readings: The balance is not flowing so smoothly. Either we are not adjusting our balance in accordance with the feedback we are getting or things are moving too quickly for us to do so.
