King of Wands

The King of Wands

As the Son of a coal miner, we always had a roaring fire in our childhood home, and if you’ve ever sat at the side of an open fire, then you know exactly what I mean when I say that the heat can be absolutely ferocious. When I think of the element of fire, the energy that drives the fiery King of Wands, then you have a pretty good idea of the temperament of this powerful character. 

The Characteristics of the King of Wands have always fascinated me, a card that I’ve meditated upon many times, for he holds such power, action and drive. The qualities that take us forward in life. In many ways, he’s like the heavy ball in tenpin bowling, when he unleashes his strike. Not only can he knock all the pins down, but he has the capacity to demolished the wall behind the skittles too. Don’t think he’s all fire and brimstone, for astrologically he has Scorpio in his chart. While he is driven, potentially ruthless and forceful when needed, his might is somewhat tamed by the watery aspects of his personality.

As with every court card within the tapestry of a reading, each character brings their unique personality and energy to the mix and the King of Wands is no exception. Note the word “mix” within the previous sentence, for today’s message will centre around this idea, for we’re all a complex blend of energies. We all know people who have leadership qualities, the nurturers and carers, the grounded and practical, the more passive and assertive types etc. The King of Wands falls into the active group, a natural-born leader, strong, reliable, but ruthless if provoked. The King of Wands often charges into a reading when there’s a need to defend our position or stand up for ourselves. You may be going through a challenging situation at present, or in the near future, where you’ll need to show others that you’re stronger than they thought, or no easy target. You’ve been forewarned, so get prepared!
