Two of Wands – Tarot Card Description
A tall man looks from a battlemented roof over sea and shore; he holds a globe in his right hand, while a staff in his left rests on the battlement; another is fixed in a ring. The Rose and Cross and Lily should be noticed on the left side. Here is a lord overlooking his dominion and alternately contemplating a globe; it looks like the malady, the mortification, the sadness of Alexander amidst the grandeur of this world’s wealth.

Reversed: Desillussion, divorce, passion, conflict of interest. Additional: None Given
Two of Cups – Tarot Card Description
A youth and maiden are pledging one another, and above their cups rises the Caduceus of Hermes, between the great wings of which there appears a lion’s head.

Two of Swords – Tarot Card Meaning
Upright: Conformity and the equipoise which it suggests, courage, friendship, concord in a state of arms; another reading gives tenderness, affection, intimacy. The suggestion of harmony and other favourable readings must be considered in a qualified manner, as Swords generally are not symbolical of beneficent forces in human affairs. Additional: Gifts for a lady, influential protection for a man in search of help.
Reversed: Imposture, falsehood, duplicity, disloyalty. Additional: Dealings with rogues.

Reversed: Enforced gaiety, simulated enjoyment, literal sense, handwriting, composition, letters of exchange. Additional: Bad omen, ignorance, injustice.
