Tarot Card meaning for the Two of Wands

In the Two of Wands, we see a man standing on a castle's rooftop. He is holding the world in one hand and a wand in the other, it is a good time and place to get some perspective. 
The Wands however are not in their natural habitat, and this may prevent us being able to grow roots in a certain place or situation. In order for us to grow roots, there has to be some action and movement away from this place.

The Two of Wands as a day card

Today might be a day for gaining perspective and re-thinking our next moves. What are we thinking about? What will be our next move? We literally have our own world in our hands.
Just remember that there has to be action to move from here onto the next stage - if we stay like the person in this card we will stagnate. What action can we take to move forwards?

Negative or reversed meaning for this card

We might think we are in a good position but we are not aligned with our element in this case Wands. Wands cannot grow in cement castles and therefore we have to find ways to enjoy and use this good vantage point but also hone true to our element. The negative meaning for this card hones in on a sense of stagnation and not knowing what our next step is, whilst literally we have the world in our hands.

How this card could present itself in real life

I could relate this card to me when starting my business and to a certain extend myself still several years onwards. There is allot of knowledge and potential and there is allot of fear with going out there showing who we are and what we know letting others judge us on our skills. This card would regularly stop me from achieving more than I could image.

How this card is represented in other Tarot decks

The Crowley deck has a more positive spin on this card calling it mastery and showing that the Two Wands together can really start a (big) fire with its own potential.

The Osho Zen deck calls this card; possibilities showing an eagle scanning the landscape. What is possible? Well that is for the eagle to decide. This card strongly relates to the meaning in the Rider Waite deck.
