Prince of Wands
The Prince of Wands represents the Air within the Fire, intellect and storm within the spiritual flaming. As the son of the Queen, he bears a certain heritage of the waters inside of him, expressing in romantical beliefs and a most generous nature.
Though, the attributes of fire are excessively strong, combined with the flying airs the first impression is that of a hot storm, filled with action and willful, impulsive energies. Lacking the patience of the earth, the Prince of Wands wants it all and he wants it now, delays might provoke explosive outbursts. He has endless courage and tenacity, he can fight far superior forces until he has won.
The Prince reminds you to lead your life with intent, vision and a long-term view. You have a grand idea of what is truly possible, and you will stop at nothing to see it through. Unlike the Knight who can be a little impulsive with his actions, you have the maturity to see your vision through right to the end and beyond.
At the shadowy side, all his attributes can exaggerate to their worst, resulting in reckless destruction and even in cruelty and sadism. His impatience can mount into instability, always seeking for novelty without getting anything done, with all his powers burning out unused.
This card is full of boundless energy and power. Here we see the healing rush of force, producing enthusiasm and exhilaration. Among their many other attributes, the suit of Wands relates to morality and a strong sense of ethics, so this card also draws in matters of integrity and honesty.

Also, be aware of how your strength feels to you – this will stand you in good stead on lesser days, when you aren’t feeling quite so vital and alive.
