2 of Wands Angelic Tarot Card Meanings

A card of personal power, the 2 of Wands (Mars in Aries) highlights third chakra issues. This card shows up when there is a need to assert one’s will. Or it is a sign that someone is using their willpower to dominate another person. It can denote a power dynamic that needs to be addressed. These issues fade once we learn to take charge of the ego and to use our will in alignment with the Higher Will which always considers the Highest Good of All.

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 to crop up. As long as both parties feel they are winning, this can be a great 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 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.

In the relationship, the 2 of Wands often denotes frustration. It can relate to repressed sexual energy and/or anger.

At its best, this two 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 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 absolutely no one 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.
