Bohemian Gothic Tarot - Two of Wands

We are in a ghostly, misty night scene in the garden of the ruins of an old castle. where a dozen or so crows, or maybe bats, have just been startled into flight, as a woman wearing a long evening dress and a dark cloak walks slowly down a steep path of broken steps towards the viewer, and towards where where a man stands guard with his back to her.

The man is wearing a sturdy overcoat and a red top hat as he stands at the entrance to the path, holding a long stave in his right hand. His other hand is tucked into in his coat pocket, as though it is chilly. But the expression on his face is content, as though he knows what will happen next. He is not acknowledging the approach of the woman, but is comfortable with her presence. Perhaps he is in her employ.

They both seem to be waiting for something to happen. As though they are waiting for others to arrive, maybe to take the woman home. The both know what is going on, and they are not afraid. Or maybe there are other people still in the ruins who will follow the woman out.

There seems to be a sense of completion in the air of the woman, as though she has just put something to rest in her mind.

Perhaps she went to the castle to resolve a question that had been on her mind for a long time, and now she knows the answer.
