In a group not known for laid-back energy, the Knight of Wands is the most extra of all the tarot knights. He runs at two speeds, fast and faster. Whatever they want, they want it with the intensity of a thousand suns. Whatever they do, they do with their whole being. Their confidence is off the charts and hella attractive to anyone in their orbit. The Knight of Wands is also linked to Fire signs, so they can represent a teenager or young adult born under Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
Remember, court cards don’t always refer to a specific gender or even a particular person. Sometimes they show up as a nudge from the Universe when it’s time to embody aspects of the royal in question. All the Knights represent youth, intensity, and idealism (a.k.a. no chill), and the suit of fire is tied strongly to energy, passion, and yep, even more intensity.
Knight of Wands Meaning in a Love Reading
This knight does NOT waste any time in getting things started! When the Knight of Wands charges into a love reading, expect intensity from the get-go. Your new boo could probably power a city with the kind of energy they give off. There’s a decent chance that they have a physical hobby because they need to keep moving. Their upbeat energy usually goes along with having the charisma of a rock star. And you’d best believe they like showing off their moves like Jagger in the bedroom. If you’re already in a committed relationship, expect the sexy times between you and your love to ramp up in frequency and intensity.
If the Knight of Wands comes up in a position representing you in a love reading, it’s time to take more chances with romance. Try doing something you haven’t done before to bring love into your life. A change in your approach can give the search for love a shot of new energy it needs. Don’t be afraid to really put yourself out there. No risk, no reward.
While the Knight of Wands has a bit of a player vibe to him upright, that can be magnified x1000 when he shows up in the reversed position. This is one-night stand territory at best. At worst, he’s outright lying about his intentions—and any other lovers he might have on the side. If all you’re looking for is a little fun, you could do much worse. Just don’t expect much more. This fire will burn itself out quickly, leaving you looking for warmth somewhere else. If the reversed Knight of Wands came up representing you, it’s a sign that your heart is def not in this relationship for the long haul. Don’t force things to be something they aren’t.
The Knight of Wands Meaning in a Future Reading
Are you hoping for chill times ahead? Sorry to break it to you, bestie, but there’s a lot less chill and a lot more complications when the Knight of Wands rides into a future reading. Consider any ruts you may be stuck in officially busted. People and situations might feel like they are moving fast, leaving you to play catch up. The good news is that if you can keep up, new opportunities might open up, especially with travel. This knight could also represent an impulsive teen or young adult taking on a bigger role in your life. You may need to act as a grounding force for them, but they’ll definitely bring a lot of energy and enthusiasm to your life.
If the Knight of Wands turned up in a position representing you, the universe is telling you it’s time to take a much more active role in your life. That scary thing you’ve been putting off? Yeah, now is the time just to do it! Try not to over-intellectualize or over-analyze (yeah, we get it—that’s tough for us, too!) because you could end up talking yourself out of a good experience or opportunity. If you have to give it any brain space, ask yourself what’s the worst that could happen. You may find the reward way outweighs the risk.
If the Knight of Wands came up reversed in your future reading, it’s time to slam on the brakes! Something is becoming an energy suck, leaving you with little or nothing to show for it. Reclaim your time and try to make as graceful a separation between you and it as soon as possible. If the reversed knight represents you in a spread, slow your roll, sis. You may be on the verge of making a rash decision with unpleasant consequences. Check the surrounding cards. Check with your squad. Check with anyone you trust! A different perspective can keep you from committing to something that will not serve you.
The Knight of Wands in a Career Reading
When the Knight of Wands comes into a career reading, excitement is always on the table. If you were asking about your chances of getting a new job, you’d probably get it, but you may also need to hit the ground running the second you start it. All the learning will happen by actually doing. If you were asking about your current job, there might be a radical shift in how daily work is handled, a project’s direction, or the company’s priorities. This may not be a bad thing, but you will need to lace up your kicks and be ready to run with the way things are going. There might be a nice payoff for those who can keep up with the changes.
The time is right to make bold career moves if this knight shows up in a position representing you. Opportunities to make the most of your talents (and be recognized/ rewarded for them) will be right there in front of you, but you need to be assertive about claiming them. Be brave and set your ambitions high because the energy is right for you to make those money moves.
Did the Knight of Wands show up in a reversed position? Expect things to go down in a blaze… but def not a blaze of glory. Some bad decisions could make everyone in your department or organization feel the pain. If the card comes up representing you, stop everything and make sure you aren’t enabling or making hasty judgment calls. It’s worth taking the time to double-check with your colleagues and coworkers before making a final call.
