I always say that the deck a reader chooses is as much a part of the reading as the cards that are pulled.
There are many decks that have a lot in common between cards, and there are some that take a different path. This is just one example.
The two of wands can be interpreted in a number of ways, but I tend to see it as a card with a terrific energy of possibilities. I see a doorway suggested by the the two upright rods/wands/staves as they are portrayed in many decks.
All the figures – human or otherwise – invite the viewer to identify with their place in the scene, and that identification is part of the method of interpretation.
These cards’ different visuals and energy in the images suggest variations on the theme, from conflict, to questions, to a reversal of expectations and even wondering where one’s place is in the scheme of things.
