Basil and the Two of Wands
In the Herbal Tarot, Basil is associated with the Two of Wands. On this card, a young nobleman holds a sphere, or globe, and seems to be surveying all that is available to him. This could be a very positive outlook, or a very self-centered view. This card teaches us to not mistake material wealth for spiritual wealth. Basil can help with this by supporting idealism and a clear inner vision. It can help us to follow through on our projects.
