I'm not sure why it took me so long to realize this, but by making the Wands into The Fire Wand Circus, Graham has added a group dynamic that is quite unique and full of energy. The loners of the RWS are suddenly engaged with other people, not just by implication, but right here and now. Besides drawing this card, I also drew the Nine of Cups- another group card that seems a whole lot friendlier than that smug RWS guy (he always makes we wonder if I've grown too attached to material things).
Here we have The Tinsel Bulb, a two person act. The clown is just about to go forward with his part, but he doesn't have the wide open horizon before him, he is practicing and rehearsing with his partner (who is laying a reassuring hand on his shoulder), to be ready to brave the spotlight and crowds with his confidence soaring. He also serves to reassure his blindfolded partner, who in his hand gesture may be looking to recieve support as well as give it. They are working on two of the elements crucial to launching a successful enterprise; confidence and timing.
Graham's booklet says: "Inside a circus tent we observe a famous two person act, The Tinsel Bulb, during a rehersal. They are working together exchanging new creative ideas of pioneering accuracy. The Tinsel Bulb clown is about to jump the fast moving blades of the scissors held by his partner while blindfolded. Together they are creating a complete work.
Divinitory Meaning: The Two of Wands represents an exchange of good ideas, putting ideas into motion, synergy.
Reverse Meaning: Not listening to advice, unable to make a decision."
