2 of Wands – Two of Fire – Possibilities -Vision- Dominion.

2 of Wands card meaning

The two of wands is the card of possibilities.


Wands as an element stands for fire, and action. And upon the beginning of that action is the unlimited nature of clarity. That clarity is of possibilities, otherwise perceived as the dominion of action armed with the idea. 

To traditional interpretation, the two of wands is the formative idea begun upon its stage of evolution. Dominion as mentioned earlier is a primary facet. To other reads, it is seen as the start of transformation. Osho calls it possibilities. 

As the two of light, this stands for vision, and thought having opened to formless boundaries for that un-limiting step for perception. 

There is great harmony in this card, with its signals to inspiration in all directions. Such is the nature of fire emerging and converging ideas into action. 

The wands as a suit are all action-oriented cards, marking a poise or a stride in the midst of activity, both internal and external. 

There is an understated determination in this sign. The will is being forged at this stage, only to solidify with further action to intention. 

As the two of light, this is the flame that shines brighter once it has lit another. That the entirety of spirit salutes accomplishment to the soul, and in that act of purity of vision, is found the approval of all spirit and sundry.

Divination : What it means if you receive this card


From the synthesis of creation, a new energy of possibility is channeled  to awaken through the wands. The Two of Wands signifies a point where these creative energies are brought together to flourish and produce. 

Indeed this sign foretells prosperity in partnerships and production. The partnering to challenge and achieve higher goals. 

In a situation, this heralds a prosperous venture, a merger of sorts. It is a consolidated first step to a well deliberated plan.

The fire of creative energy or spiritual yearning are the wands; here, it is offered direction toward a specific goal. 

Thus, this goal, it is anticipated, and will quench the urge to change. Once determined, change can begin. 

This card is about that determination, resolve and discipline. The beginnings of the Transformation.

The Two of Wands indicates that you are moving into your personal power, to move forward with courage, originality and potential.

This first step in a new direction can be empowering so consolidate your steps and accept the road as it is taking you. This would be the time you can alter it to your comfort and with complete clarity. 

This is also a sign of possibilities, vision and inspiration. Often even called the Lord of Dominion.


Vision, the start of activity.

You can find the courage to take new ideas up and put faith in that invisible creative force that has generated this  envision of a new path.

This can be a dramatic display of abilities in controlling and combining the raw energies around you, towards creative will in its most exalted form.

These are indeed the fires of imagination – the ladder of ambitions and aspiration. Creative potential growth of enterprise.

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.

Starry Tarot.

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. 

To its primary meanings, the messages here are of the spiritual realm. Creativity, imagination, Inspiration. Illumination, mysticism, magic. Burning, purifying. Idealistic, ascetic and Fire. 

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. 

 There is resistance to vision. Restrained beginnings. Cautious action. Inability to see the bigger picture. Possibilities are still there, with a little effort. 

Difficulty in consolidation. Obstacles to dominion. 

Also shows a fierceness, shamelessness, ambition, restlessness, turbulence. A card of enthusiasm, but strong self-interest.

Quote # 14

The Star – XVII – Tarot. Divination and reverse interpretation.


17 – The Star – Arcana – The horoscope.

The Star card meaning

The card seventeen of the major arcana is that of the Star. And simply by virtue of being the major arcana, it has the important task of guiding the soul directly. 

Osho Zen Tarot

To the occult terms, the number 17 is that of the horoscope, and charts the trajectory of any individual to the choices they make in life. As the individual grows and evolves, so does their orbit to all matters of spirit and soul in their interactions with the world. And with that, their star guides them through their subconscious and allows them to chart their wisdom to their lifetime. 

And yes, it is possible to cast in horoscope to a star to map a person’s influences. But then as the older we get, based on the choices made at important junctures in life, the personality starts to become cast as the reflection of the said star of the tarot. And merging of sorts in all heavenly attributes reflected to a person’s star and their earthly qualities as a name living the lifetime. 

Osho in his tarot cards calls this Silence, and only the individual knows the real truth of the impressions made of celestial matters in their journey. 

And that journey is what each querent makes in the silence of their own contemplation. The star and soul, each guided by the other. That is their ascent to horoscope, and descent to matter. 

This card is also connected to the goddess, and naturally all stars in the epitome of a star. A star is born, when another hath arisen. 


Divination XVII – The Star. Melodies. Horoscope :

star tarot

A guiding vision of hope arises, harmonious uniting of heaven and earth, divine protection and power to transcend the mundane world with all its trappings. 

This sign is about inspiration, crystallisation, self-confidence, and the conjunction with the universal intellect with the collective unconscious. And it brings the insight that there are endless possibilities of existence we can connect to. With our feeling, instincts, imagination, intuition, hope, optimism, trust, and through faith.

A time of calm follows a time of upheaval. The Star brings a sense of relief and a renewed sense of faith in the universe.

Hope, gifts of spirit, deeper silence, meaningful illusions. Knowledge, hidden meanings, spiritual experiences, heightened awareness. 

A sense that we are on the right path. The light of the Star is the light of understanding,  of awareness, and truth, in stimulating our imagination and restoring our sense of connection to the greater mysteries. 

The Star shines above you and reflects you to guide your way, showing you a deeper sense of meaning and direction.

Drawn, it is implied that there is abundant hope in your life.

In situations, this card reflects favorably on any outcome. It also asks to keep hope alive in tougher situations and not to lose faith in any struggle. In relationships, this card implies a positive and balanced ideal relationship between partners. 

Reversed – 17 – The Silence of the Stars

Pythagoras Tarot

Divination : Reversed but all the same indicated to this card are gifts of spirit, heightened awareness or experiences, illusions, hidden meanings, and hope shining over clouded expressions.

This could be a sign that you are denying your talents and inner truths, losing yourself in idealism without manifesting your ideals into reality.

The appearance of the Star in a reading suggests an ability to connect to your deeper self and to trust that all will be well. Love and energy flow freely and are available to you as you need them, for yourself or to share. All this is still true to the reverse card, but only after you put in a little effort. That’s the virtue of finding your inner silence to this sign. Your unique personal connecting to everything deeper and more ancient in the universe. 

This is a time to align yourself with a higher consciousness, to grow in your connection to spirit, and to honour your creative imagination.

In a situation, a loss of hope may cause tension and a loss of faith in any positive outcome. The signs and suggestions to the shadow or reversed Star card are to briefly lay low and turn inward. 

All situations may still turn your way. First you turn inward to the star. Find your sense of self. And optimism will restore and follow.
