The Two of Wands from the Rider/Waite/Smith deck shows a richly dressed man holding a globe as he looks out to sea. It is a card of attainment of goals, achievement and success. The symbolism here is difficult to discern unless you are familiar with the meanings of the colors, the globe, the crisscrossed roses and lilies, etc. To modernize this concept in the Two of Fire, Expanding Dimensions, the authors of Today’s Journey Tarot chose to depict a ribbon cutting ceremony for a new lighting business. The lighting emphasizes the fire element of the card – the energy behind the success. Since this is the beginning of the business, the possibilities for future success are just beginning.
