The Symbolism in the "Two of Wands" Tarot Card:

A nobleman overlooks his fertile domain from an embattlement. He holds a globe in one hand and a wand in another. A decoration with a rose, cross, and lily adorn the castle wall, presumably his coat of arms. The two wands in the card seem firmly affixed to the castle walls.

The Meaning of the "Two of Wands" Tarot Card:

Success in business and personal achievement - the ennui that exists when you achieve everything that you have set out to achieve. A great sense of accomplishment, but also of "what next?". A time of stock-taking and re-evaluation, planning for the next move. Riches, fortune, personal significance. The land that the lord is overlooking is a beautiful land, but his eyes seem to be more focused on the globe in his hands. Not being content with the current situation, the need to branch out further despite past success. The rosy cross symbol is a reference to the Rosicrucians, which hints at a more esoteric meaning to this card than is on the surface. The stock-taking is both inner as well as outer.
