The meaning of the Two of Wands Tarot card is ‘partnership.’ The Two of Wands is a peculiar card, and I read it with two distinct meanings. On the one hand, it predicts that you will be unhappy with your achievements. On the other hand, it represents riches and successful partnerships. I will explain both meanings here.
Two of Wands Tarot Meaning
Most Tarot readers interpret the Two of Wands as a card of enterprise. It’s typical to have projects, plans, and business on your mind when this card appears.
Tarot Twos often symbolize cooperation, a step away from the loneliness of the Ace. You could find yourself in a new business partnership very soon. There are contracts to be signed and money to be counted. Success is on the horizon.
Because it symbolizes good partnerships and achievements, the Two of Wands has many positive attributes. If it appears as a plus for you, this means you have other people around you willing to lend their assistance. However, there will be times when it appears in a negative or challenge position; in these instances, the Two of Wands stands for discontent.
Although you will achieve the things you want, this success could leave you feeling unfulfilled. The design on the Rider-Waite deck suggests an emperor who is looking out from his palace, longing at what the world has to offer despite having the world already in his hands. The Two of Wands is, therefore, ultimately a warning that your goals and wishes may not turn out to be all that they’re cracked up to be once you’ve achieved them.
Two of Wands Love Tarot Meaning
In loving romances, the Two of Wands can have a rather positive meaning, especially if it appears in a future or outcome position. In these cases, it basically means you work well together and that the relationship has a chance of survival.
However, the Two of Wands in a love Tarot reading can also mean that you will eventually bore of your lover – this is especially true if you’re the one doing all of the chasing. You may think they’re a prize just now, but once you get to know them, your excitement will wear off. That’s not to say the relationship won’t last, but be mindful that it’s not going to be all sunshine and rainbows every day.

Two of Wands Feelings Tarot Meaning
If you’re curious as to what someone is feeling toward you, the Two of Wands means that they see you as a potential partner. The dynamic of your relationship is sound. However, in this context, the Wands suit can usually mean that they’re caught up with other commitments even if you’re interested in a relationship.
When the Tarot reading appears negative or you and your lover have issues, the Two of Wands means that your relationship works for practical reasons, but that there’s something missing in the relationship. You and your partner may work better together as friends than you do as lovers.
Two of Wands Career & Business Tarot Meaning
In a career context, the Two of Wands can serve as both a good outcome and a warning, depending on the type of nature you have.
Are you the type of person who’s a lone wolf and would never consider collaborating with anyone else? If so, you’re in the shit. The Two of Wands is pretty much screaming that you must find a partner to work with; otherwise, you’re not going to progress very far any time soon.
Collaboration could be as simple as you posting a guest post on someone else’s blog or appearing on their podcast. Alternatively, you might have to work closely with someone else. In any event, the Two of Wands is telling you that you must use other people’s platforms to get where you need to go.
Two of Wands Future Tarot Meaning
The Two of Wands is a favorable card to receive in future or outcome positions of a Tarot spread. In these cases, the Two of Wands represents success in the future – it’s an excellent card to receive for business and career matters.
In love readings, the Two of Wands will pop up in future or outcome positions to predict that you and your lover will work well together in the future. However, once the excitement of the chase wears off, you could realize that your fantasy doesn’t match the reality.

When the Two of Wands appears in a negative, weakness, or obstacle Tarot spread position, it means you will be discontented with your achievements. Although you will achieve the things you want, you won’t be happy. You’re about to learn that the grass is not always greener on the other side.
In some cases, the Two of Wands will pop up as a negative in a Tarot spread if you cannot work well with other people. There may be cases when you have to work with others, even if you’re enthusiastic about doing so.

Although you may be a little discontent with everything you’ve achieved, the Two of Wands in a Tarot reading is a sign that you will see success. Not only will your hard work pay off, but you will also have other people to help share your workload.
