Today’s Card: Knight of Wands
“On the positive side, the Knight of Wands is full of energy and life. He’s never afraid to try something new and will reach for all the gusto he can. Others may shake their heads at his crazy stunts, but they still admire his courage and passion. He’s sexy and irresistible…always the charmer. On the negative side, this Knight is a little too sure of himself and his abilities. He tends to be shallow and thoughtless. Don’t expect a deep commitment from him. He’s also reckless and irresponsible. He acts without thinking and constantly gets in trouble because of his temper.In readings, a Knight of Wands shows that his confident, passionate style is involved in the situation as an aspect of you, someone else or the atmosphere in general. You need to ask yourself, “Is this Knight’s energy helping or hurting?”If his style is evident, then balance is needed. Is your confidence really cockiness? Are you angry and impatient all the time? Are you crazy about someone whom you know is going to break your heart? Is your company rushing into something risky with no preparation? It may be time for a change.If this Knight’s energy is missing, a dose of passion and daring may be called for. Are you in a rut? Try something new. Are you always planning every last detail? Wing it next time. Are you working too hard? Go out and have some fun. Let the Knight of Wands introduce you to his world of adventure, excitement and risk.”- Learning The Tarot
“The Knight of Wands is seen riding upon his horse, which rears up in the intensity of the Knight’s quest for success. The Knight’s face bears the determination of one bound to succeed. The plumes from the Knight of Wands’ helmet and the decorative tassels hanging from his back and arms are the colour of flame and he, like the Page, wears a shirt covered with the symbol of the fiery salamander.”-Biddy Tarot
I picked the card from the Spirit Deck, but I wanted to get the meanings from each for a more rounded and full reading.
Spirit Tarot Deck: A journey, advancement into the unknown, alteration, flight, absence.
Aquarian Tarot Deck: (Knight of Rods) May indicate change of residence, travel, departure
Rider Tarot Deck: Departure, absence, flight, emigration, change of residence.
Since fire is my favorite element, it makes sense that this would be my card (at least today). It must be time to keep charging forward, don’t doubt the confidence, try new things, try not to worry so much (working on that one). Could also mean finding a new place to live in the near future. Like fire, it’s time to keep the flame burning bright, and not let anyone rain on my parade.
