The Two of Wands involves the planning and decisions needed to be made in order to develop your idea or vision. You’ve done that and now you’re waiting to see the outcome. The Eight of Wands suggest you will reach or complete this goal quickly but it comes with a warning of being too hasty. Try not to make hasty decisions and make a mistake. The 2W says to patient while waiting for success. So this may be a struggle.
Both also indicate travel. So you may find yourself going on a trip for business or hopefully for pleasure.
The central card the Ace of Cups, seems like it’s being ignored by the Two and the Eight. Maybe they feel, this is not the right time to begin a new friendship or a new romantic relationship. Decision, decisions. However, you never know, on this trip you may meet someone new who give you butterflies and new love can be intoxicating. Love may trump your goals.
