The Two of Wands (Two of Fire in the Penguin Tarot Deck) in the Minor Arcana of the tarot brings the creative idea that came from the Ace of Wands to create an action plan. You are at a phase where you must figure out how you will carry out your plan. This means you have to make many decisions along the way as well as plan for the future. As you do your planning you will make new discoveries which will help you know exactly what you want to manifest.
As your plan has been materialized, you are looking through your options very carefully, and weeding out the ones that are not going to be helpful. But you are open-minded as you are plotting out the path and you are looking at the different possibilities as well as challenges that you could encounter.
It is important to be open to growing and exploring new ideas as long as you know that the efforts you are already putting out will pan out in the end.
When the Two of Wands is in reverse, it is indicative of the fear of the unknown so therefore, you are at a standstill due to the fact that fear is paralyzing you. That is even though you have your new idea. You may also be rushing to go after your goal without the proper planning that is needed for it to pan out.
This card is astrologically tied to Mars in Aries.
