2 of Wands from the Smith Waite Tarot

2 of Wands

It’s pretty certain Adam Winrich wasn’t thinking about the 2 of Wands when he made this Whips and Harmonica video. But that’s what I thought about when I watched it.

The two poles in the background make an obvious connection to the Smith Waite card. But instead of a globe in his hand, Winrich cracks some whips as a sign of his power.

They reminded me of the dorjes on the Thoth 2 of Wands, as well as that card’s key word of ‘dominion’.

Wands are about the spirit, and this two can be about finding dominion within yourself through balancing your spirit and your physical reality.

With his unlikely pairing of harmonica and whip snapping, Winrich seems to have found such a balance.
