Life Imitating Tarot
In my previous post, I considered how several comic strips have an unintentional resemblance to a Tarot card. I would like to add an image that I found a while back that shows a wonderful example of how life can imitate the Tarot sometimes.
This adorable photo of two dogs looking out at the world reminds me of, and provides an interesting spin on the Two of Wands. I’ve always thought that the RWS version of this card needed some more explicit indications of duality and balance since it is a TWO card, and here it is.
I can see cooperation and partnership in this image, which I don’t get from the image on the RWS version, and I think that works well with the numerological association of the number Two and the elemental association of the suit of Wands.
I’d love to hear what other people think this image might add to our traditional interpretations of the Two of Wands.
