Deuce of Wands

The suit of Clubs originates in the Tarot suit of Wands; therefore, the Tarot equivalent of the Deuce of Clubs is the Deuce of Wands. Here's what Tarot crank Arthur Edward Waite writes about the Deuce of Wands:

"A tall man looks from a battlemented roof over sea and shore; he holds a globe in his right hand, while a staff in his left rests on the battlement; another is fixed in a ring. The Rose and Cross and Lily should be noticed on the left side. Divinatory Meanings: Between the alternative readings there is no marriage possible; on the one hand, riches, fortune, magnificence; on the other, physical suffering, disease, chagrin, sadness, mortification. The design gives one suggestion; here is a lord overlooking his dominion and alternately contemplating a globe; it looks like the malady, the mortification, the sadness of Alexander amidst the grandeur of this world's wealth. Reversed: Surprise, wonder, enchantment, emotion, trouble, fear."

In the words of Brian, the accidental messiah, "Well, what sort of chance does THAT give me??"
