Knight of Wands
THE KING OF WANDS – (Knight of Wands) – Sun – Lion – Confidence, Self-sufficiency
Astrology: 21° Scorpio to 20° Sagittarius
Knight of Wands
Being fire in fire, the Knight of Wands is the purest manifestation of his element – burning, flaming, enthusiastic and thrilling. He is the born leader, full of ideas and idealism, proud and commanding, at his best noble, honest, conscientious and intelligent.
The Knight of Wands can stand for highest inspirations, spiritual realization and purest creativity.
But with fire in fire, the Knight of the Wands lacks the depths of waters, the stability of earth and the analyzing logic of air. His strength might degenerate to pure tyranny, his convictions stiffen to dogmatism, he might get cruel, bigot and brutal at his worst.
Further the fires within fire lack the sources of reserved potentials, so once the explosion is over, there is nothing more left for the Knight to provide.
This is a dynamic and active card, with a great deal of warm enthusiasm and gaiety flowing from its energy. Often insight and perception increase when it is influential. There are often sudden and unexpected shifts of energy, so that blockages are swept firmly out of your path, leaving you free to move forward in your chosen direction.
On a day ruled by this card, expect to be directed to take action to remove difficulties and resolve problems, and be open to guidance from wherever it happens to come. This card is sometimes known by the title “Lord of Lightning” and he will use life’s everyday tools to nudge you in the right direction. Don’t be surprised to receive guidance from odd sources, and pay close attention to what happens around you. Allow yourself to be alert to apparently random input which will give you clues and ideas that had not occurred to you before.
