Pithy Tarot meanings — Two of Wands

April 3, 2012

RWS 2.0 Two of Wands.
Here is a pithy meaning for the Two of Wands:

“A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush.” — Traditional proverb

(This says that it’s better to have a lesser but certain advantage than the possibility of a greater one that may come to nothing.)

Note that we might also associate this saying with the Nine of Pentacles due to the imagery on the RWS version of the card. What do you think?

RWS 2.0 Nine of Pentacles.

Note: Each of these pithy Tarot meanings is just one facet of its card. Find more of them on my Card Meanings page.  Also, get my Pithy Tarot Book and LIKE my Pithy Tarot Facebook page
