II of Wands reversed:
When the II of Wands shows up reversed in your reading, it can indicate a block of vision. You are feeling uninspired or cloudy in your future planning. What do you want to do with your life? What are you goals? What do you even want to accomplish? It’s hard to make decisions and be visionary when you can’t figure out what you are striving for. It’s time to reconnect to your inner fire. You need to get back to the root of what lights you up inside and what you are passionate about. Can you set aside some time for that rekindling, maybe actually making a vision board or journaling about your goals or creating a five year plan?
Of course, sometimes we are not passionate. Sometimes we don’t have huge, life-changing goals in mind. The II of Wands can show up reversed to say that you are stagnant for the moment. Is there anything wrong with that? People are always changing and evolving, so it’s very seldom that we are on the level. Can you enjoy a break in the action? It could be that everything is just bumping along great for you at the moment and there is not need for a vision board, blah, blah, blah or any big changes in your life. Be grateful and present in the moment. What is wonderful about where you are at right now?
If you are feeling stagnant and can’t get in touch with your inner passion, that’s okay. Don’t push it too hard or you will just get frustrated and angry that your life has no purpose or passion. Sometimes we aren’t passionate! But is there anything that you are even slightly interested in or curious about? Maybe you have been meaning to start adult coloring or explore more of the neighborhoods in your city. Why not pick up some fresh colored pencils or start hitting every coffeeshop in your town to try different brews? Sometimes small acts of curiosity can get your out of a disinterested funk or even lead to big new passion projects. The II of Wands reversed asks you to examine your inspiration and why it is somewhat dormant at the moment. Is that okay for the moment or do you need to kick start it into action with a little exploration?
