Feeling Into the Energy of the 2 of Wands

The 2 of Wands is a card of power that highlights third chakra issues. This card often shows up when there is a need to assert one’s will. Or it can be a sign that someone is using their willpower to dominate another person. It may denote a power dynamic that needs to be addressed. These issues fade once we mature spiritually. When we learn to take charge of the ego and use our will and personal power in alignment with what is for the Highest Good, power dynamics no longer enter the picture.


The 2 of Wands can also be a positive sign that now is a good time to establish a mutually beneficial and energising business partnership. However, it is important to establish terms for the collaboration that prevent any kind of power dynamic or manipulation from cropping up. As long as both parties are working toward the same goal and feel they are winning, the 2 of Wands can be the sign of a promising and fruitful partnership.

“I have never been able to conceive how any rational being could propose happiness to himself from the exercise of power over others.”
― Thomas Jefferson

The 2 of Wands card can indicate the need to make a choice that tests the strength of one’s willpower. Will you yield or will you stand your ground? Anger issues and arrogance can be indicated. Anger issues often prop up when we feel out of control or cornered in some way. This tends to happen when we project our power onto others and refuse to take responsibility for our own creations.

“The most exquisite paradox…as soon as you give it all up, you can have it all.  As long as you want power, you can’t have it. The minute you don’t want power, you’ll have more than you ever dreamed possible.”
― Ram Dass

Affirmation: “I let go of the need to control other people and situations, and rest in the peaceful knowledge that once I am aligned with Higher Will, all else that can be well, will be well.”

The 2 of Wands in Love and Relationships

The surge of energy and passion that comes with the 2 of Wands is not easily contained because it abhors any physical limitations imposed on it once it descends from the lightning planes. But without these limitations, we would not be able to channel the gift of the Ace into reality. Often, this card expresses the kind of explosive passion that arises from opposites attracting.

In the relationship, the 2 of Wands can also denote frustration. It can relate to repressed sexual energy and/or anger. Any time there is a repression of one’s natural expression, we tend to see more of the shadow side of this card.

At its best, this 2 is symbolic of a high-energy relationship where two competitive partners are pulling together. In this instance, a great way to prevent any wonky power dynamic or tension from cropping up is to exercise or do sports together.

However, there is often a dynamic of partners vying for control when this card shows up in a reading. Both want to lead and neither wants to follow.

This highly charged energy can lead to some fun, playfully aggressive times under the duvet with a huge release of pent-up energy upon climax.
