Two of Wands represents first decade of Aries from March 21 to April 1.
The first decade of Aries symbolizes a movement from depth to free space – furious, ready to overcome all obstacles and irresistibly striving for victory. This decade, just as Aries is familiar with the whole, is ruled by Mars, and the fiery impulse, reflecting the essence of this sign, is a symbol of any beginning. But this impulse is not yet strong and not protected, and therefore vulnerable: it has not yet adapted to the existing world.
This is a new role for which no script has yet been written. This is uncertainty in a new position due to a break with old experience, blinding by one’s own impulse due to inability to see oneself from the outside. Therefore, to make a new right decision, it is important to rely on past achievements.
Turning to the figurative path that the Idea follows in its development, then at the level of the TWO STAFFS it (the Idea), as it were, is gaining strength, expanding. She is about to separate from the Creator and will be realized.
On a more material level (society) TWO Wands symbolizes a person with ideas, desires, ambitions, who is forced to seek a compromise with other people endowed with their ideas, desires and ambitions.
