Reversed 2 of Wands – Fetters and Possibilities
Divination : This sign blocks its own energy, holding back all the potential of the moment.
The reverse 2 of wands is the complexity of blockage in your creative energies.
There may be external issues affecting the chance or possibility for a fruitful partnership. This card advises looking within to find what may be the cause.
And out of restlessness and unformed power one idea leads to another and often the first few are far from the final one.
Reversed, this does not look favorably upon situations involving partnerships or ventures. Prosperity is delayed and there may be an unwillingness to cooperate. External forces, restricting regulations, or a lack of support, may well hamper progress which already is in mere early stages.
There is a slow dissipation of the creative at this stage.
Normally, the fire of creative energy or spiritual yearning is represented by Wands, and given direction at the 2 of wands.
The goal, however blurry would then quench the yearning, dissatisfaction, or urge to change. And so the means to resolves are indeed determination, resolve and discipline. The beginning of the Transformation, albeit repressed.

All the same, there is tremendous potential that wasn’t quite able to fructify. The possibilities are still very much there, just a little diminished from whence they began. A little effort, you might find your stride again.
Often, at this time you may find surprise, wonder, enchantment, emotion, trouble, fear.
There may be sudden application of phenomenal. Wilful, imperial. A strong urge for freedom and independence. A refusal to yield to another’s will.
Sometimes to this sign, you may find Strength, domination. Boldness, courage, love of freedom, fierceness, fighting spirit, ambition, refinement, impatience, sagacious withal, yet an unforgiving and obstinate nature.

Difficulty in consolidation. Obstacles to dominion.

A coat of quotes and passing poetry
“O! hast thou seen a vernal Morning bright.
Gem every bank and trembling leaf with dews,
Tinging the green fields with her amber hues,
Changing the leaden streams to lines of light?
Then seen dull Clouds, that shed untimely night,
Roll envious on, and every ray suffuse,
Till the chill'd Scenes their early beauty lose,
And faint, and colourless, no more invite.
The glistening gaze of Joy?—'Twas emblem just,
Of my youth's sun, on which deep shadows fell,
Spread from the PALL OF FRIENDS; and Grief's loud gust,
Resistless, oft wou'd wasted tears compel:
Yet let me hope, that on my darken'd days,
Science, and pious Trust, may shed pervading rays.” - Horace."
