Welcome back! I’m so glad you are here as we continue our journey through the Tarot cards. This is day 6 of 78 and the card I drew for today is the Two of Wands.
From a numerology perspective, two represents partnerships, cooperation or collaboration. This stands true with our Two of Wands. The card shows a traveler on a meandering path that splits in the near future. Just beyond the split in the path the two wands are firmly planted in the ground. In the distant background of the card we see two deer calmly grazing and looking at the traveler without fear. The whole meadow in front of the traveler is green and lush.
This card is filled with hopes and dreams for the future. The traveler is near the beginning of the path signifying that he has recently started the journey or, in this case, a new venture. Now he is firmly on the path of this new venture even though it is fairly new. The wands being firmly planted in the ground indicates that the new venture is firmly established and appears to be standing on its own. This gives the traveler a sense of satisfaction and the motivation to continue down the path. The lush foliage shows that the path is growing with great possibilities.
As I mentioned, ahead of the traveler the path splits into two different pathways. This indicates that as the traveler continues with the new venture, new opportunities are in the future. It also shows that a partnership may form or a new direction for the project could be coming. As both paths are equal in size and both continue through the fertile meadow, whatever choice the traveler makes will work out successfully. The only thing that will stall or stop the forward progression of the project is if the traveler lacks the motivation or the courage to keep going.
For me, this card is very exciting and refreshing. Having started several ventures in the past, I know the feelings of insecurity along the path to success. Once the venture is firmly established and the fruits of my labors start to show themselves, feelings of immense gratitude and excitement for the future bloom. As anyone who has birthed a new venture knows, there are always twists and turns along the way. Many times, as the venture gains momentum, bringing in a new partner or assistant becomes a necessity. There are also always decisions to be made that will alter the direction of the project. No matter how well you plan, new directions always present themselves if you are willing to see them. The most empowering feeling is knowing that you get to choose where the project goes!
Life is like this so many times. When we take a relationship from dating to marriage, there is a period of getting the marriage from the alter to a place of stability. Once this happens both people can stand side by side look at the future with a sense of security and great antisipation. When a baby is born, it brings with it so many emotions! We wonder if we will be good parents. We worry that we will do something wrong and the baby will be harmed. We fear we won’t be able to stay the course until the child is grown and on his or her own. But, once we are firmly on the parenthood path and the child is thriving, all of those insecurities fade. We anticipate the future with great expectations! We start to think of all the new adventures the baby will bring to our lives as he or she grows up. We relish each new phase of development thinking this new phase is even better than the last!
These concepts also hold true for any new venture we decide to embark upon at any phase of our lives! Whether it is starting a new business, or building a new home, changing jobs or leaving behind your childhood hometown, there will always be fears and doubts in the beginning. If we have the motivation and courage to keep moving forward with our dreams, we will eventually reach this place where the new venture is firmly established. We will stop looking at each day with worry and fear and will start looking past the place where we stand to the place we have the opportunity to go.
Thanks again for being here!
