The Knight of Wands Tarot Card Meaning

As a person:

The Knight of Wands as a person is someone who is always rushing into things without thinking. They are very sure of themselves and cannot fathom the concept of failure. They are competitive by nature and thrive on challenges. This makes them the type of person who always ends up getting into fights.. but never really knows why they’re fighting. They’re full of energy and let the passion of the moment rule their decisions. They have the ability to be great someday, but are still somewhat immature.

He may be secretive and interested in the occult, having some psychic abilities and very mysterious.

In love, there could be a male who appears with the above qualities.

Appearance wise the Knight of Wands has blonde or light brown hair with blue gray eyes.

As an Energy:

There is a lot of energy going on around you. You may be filled with this energy as it fuels your passion, motivation and enthusiasm. You are feeling super inspired to create something that you have been thinking about for a while. It’s finally time for you to take action on your ideas and you are soo ready.

You are feeling confident and willing to step out on a limb to try to achieve your dreams. You’re not worried about possible danger in the future- that just excites you more. There is a need for adventure in you, a need to seek out thrills.

The Knight of Wands energy makes you feel like you can take on the world. Nothing can stop you and nothing can get in your way. The more that you accomplish, the more motivated you become and you feel unstoppable. 

While this energy fuels you to achieve your dreams, it is still in it’s immature state. You haven’t yet figured out how to guide others to have the same level of energy an passion that you do. But this doesn’t bother you right now. You are caught up in the attention that your own energy bring you. If other’s can keep up with you- great. If not, then they are welcome to admire from afar.

This Knight can be a little full of himself, a little impatient with an act now, think later attitude. This can end up hurting your chances of success because you are scattering your focus, thus your energy instead of directing it towards a singular goal. Try to take a moment when a new idea shows up to see how it aligns with your goals and current path.

The Knight of Wands Reversed Tarot Card Meaning

When the Knight of Wands is reversed, you may be scattering your energy instead of focusing it on your goals. With your energy scattered, you may be finding yourself a bit restless, because you feel like there is something big you are supposed to be doing, but you can’t place your finger on it. Your actions become more hasty and impatient. You find yourself at odd with others more often because you have become too competitive. Everything has become a challenge to be won. You are spending a lot of your energy fighting with others.

Conversely, you may be putting your energy to use in a more personal way. You are working on something that is purely for you. You are not looking to have any kind of recognition for your efforts, just your own personal enjoyment.

In love, a male may be showing up who is insecure, hasty, or drags their feet. There is a lot of hesitation and a lack of assertiveness.
