The King of Wands Tarot Card
The Kingdom of Wands symbolizes energy, inspiration and desire. The King of Wands is a natural leader who has no doubt that he is in charge. Courageous, charismatic, generous. His ambition drives him ever onward toward greater achievements. His confidence, energy and enthusiasm infect those around him. He greatly enjoys social events and is a loyal friend. As a parent, he is more likely to lead his children by influence and inspiration than with discipline. He enjoys starting new projects, but does not always finish up. Traditionally, honesty, integrity, talent, genius.
The reversed King of Wands can be intolerant, impatient, overbearing and domineering. He may be childish, selfish, short tempered or jealous. He might lash out at those he believes are not paying him enough respect. Another facet of this reversal may be the King’s abdication. Perhaps the responsibilities of leadership are more than he can handle. If looking at health related issues, pay attention to circulatory problems and be cautious to avoid head injuries. Traditionally, excess, exaggeration, severity.
