The Knight of Wands tarot card sits atop his horse, ready to leap into action. His shirt is yellow with a pattern, his armored helmet displays a large red feather plume. In his hand he holds a wand as his orange, fiery steed rears. Along his arms and back are tassels in the same fiery orange. He represents being full of life and full of energy, ready to charge ahead and go out on an adventure. When the Knight of Wands appears in a reading, it’s a sign to go out and travel. Get away from the mundane everyday and go find an adventure. The Knight brings change – change of address, change of project. But don’t let him carry you away. Make sure you keep a realistic view of things so that you can handle anything that comes your way.
In love the Knight of Wands tarot card meaning represents someone who may have just entered your life rather suddenly. They are rash and impulsive which can make it difficult for them to settle down, but they are also able to charm you and are very passionate. He can also represent that your love life is suddenly very erratic and you are prone to taking impulsive risks which are more likely to pay off now than at other times.
When it comes to your work you are ready to take on a new adventure, passionate about a new work project, and ready to tackle new responsibilities in order to push the projects’ progress along. Don’t just sit back and wait for things to get rolling. You must use your own energy to advance.
The night of Wands Reversed Meaning
If you deal the Knight of Wands tarot card in reverse all his energy turns from charging into adventure and instead he turns tail and runs. He lacks direction, runs from commitment, and foolishly loses money. You are likely suffering frustration from delays you feel are unnecessary. You may be angry over feeling a loss of personal power and loss of control which is leading to severe pessimism and even a loss of self-confidence and self-esteem.
In your relationships you’re facing recklessness and instability either on your part or on your partners. Things feel unsteady and that leaves you anxious. It’s far too easy to spark an argument with your loved ones and you should take care to keep your temper under control. If you’re not in a relationship then be wary – someone may come into your life and spark desire but they are more focused on the pursuit of romance rather than actually starting a relationship.
Career wise, a reversed Knight of Wands tarot card shows that you lack direction and are feeling as though you have no idea where to go. You may be bouncing between jobs, settling into nothing, and while some unpredictability is normal, for you it is beginning to become a problem. Instead of looking for something new to do every day, focus your direction upward and begin to climb the ladder toward success.
