Two of Wands
Description:The painting (1896): In this work by Eugene Thirion, the archangel Michael appears to Joan of Arc and tells her that she must help the Dauphin gain the throne of France. She holds an un-lit torch in one hand and another (added by me) leans against the rock.
Also known as Jeanne d'Arc, Joan the Maid, the Maid of Orléans and the Maid of Lorraine, Joan claimed to hear the voices of saints. Whether her quest was hers alone, or whether she was used by others as a pawn is still debated. Some suspect she had some help in her destiny, and was not alone in her quest; hence the reason I decided to use this painting for the two of wands.
In a Reading: This card represents self empowerment and indicates that success is imminent because your intentions are clearly defined and understood. Instead of drifting, or wondering, you are clear on where you are going. Your passion for your cause and your determination will take you where you want and need to go. You know what needs to be done and you are prepared to do it. But you are not alone. You are involved in a partnership that forms a perfect whole. Travel is involved with this endeavor.
Regarding your occupation: For questions about your occupation or career, a collaboration benefits a creative project. You and your partner each have your own unique contributions to make, this creates a perfect complementary balance. You have been brought together for this purpose by the law of attraction, which may even feel like destiny, but don't expect the partnership to last forever. There will come a time when it will be necessary for you to go your separate way after its completion.
Regarding Romance: It is the journey that is important and the thing that binds you with your significant other is the dream you share. That dream is the bond that holds you together. When other things threaten the relationship, they are overlooked or ignored because they pale in comparison to your shared dream. Know that if the dream dies, so may the relationship. The relationship involves a creative cause and much will be born from it and much will be benefited from it, mostly in the form of spiritual growth.
Regarding your health: Although you are concerned with the outcome of medical tests, there is no reason to worry; they will come back negative. Because it is a serious matter, you tend to worry too much. Do something that will make you feel good and take your mind off of your worrying. Check your diet and avoid junk food. Increase Omega 3 oils and avoid processed foods and too much saturated fat. For right now, go take a hot bubble bath or do something else that eliminates stress.
General Advice: Your spiritual growth seems to be the reason for most of the events in your life so you may want to ask yourself why. Open yourself up to your spiritual side and listen to that whisper of guidance. Doing that will cause the turmoil of everyday events in your life to at least seem to calm down while you ride the waves of the drama with clarity and strength of purpose. You have crossed the point of no return and now you must be the person you are. There is no going back. With your new wisdom, you bare the brunt of more freedom, responsibility and power and you have earned it.
Reversed: You are giving away your personal power to someone else, or following a path of revenge that will lead only to self destructive behavior. An alliance or collaboration you thought you could count on will dissolve.
