Two of Wands

  • I haven't had a psychic flash in a while while doing a tarot reading, so I had to share. I was doing a tarot spread and for the outcome, I got Ten of Swords, Nine of Pentacles, and Two of Wands. My eyes laid upon the "Two of Wands". I was using the Gilded Tarot and this poem immediately came to my mind. It describes this card so perfectly.

    The Road Not Taken

    TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,

    And sorry I could not travel both

    And be one traveler, long I stood

    And looked down one as far as I could

    To where it bent in the undergrowth;

    Then took the other, as just as fair,

    And having perhaps the better claim,

    Because it was grassy and wanted wear;

    Though as for that the passing there

    Had worn them really about the same,

    And both that morning equally lay

    In leaves no step had trodden black.

    Oh, I kept the first for another day!

    Yet knowing how way leads on to way,

    I doubted if I should ever come back.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh

    Somewhere ages and ages hence:

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—

    I took the one less traveled by,

    And that has made all the difference.
