What is the meaning of the Three of Wands? Read on to find out...

High energy and full of charisma, the King of Wands leaves a strong impression wherever he goes. Within minutes of being in his orbit he’ll make you a believer in all of dreams he has for the future. This tarot royal shares the passion and optimism of the other members of his court, but he also has just a tiny bit more experience under his belt to help him understand the importance of discipline. The King of Wands is also linked to Fire signs, so they can represent an adult born under Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.

Remember, court cards don’t always refer to a specific gender or even to a specific 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 Kings represent a mature and outward focus, and the suit of wands is tied strongly to courage and creativity. He believes in his big visions for the future and isn’t afraid to do what it takes to make his dreams real.

What is the Meaning of the King of Wands in a Love Reading?

We mentioned how creative this king is, right? The King of Wands in a Love Reading brings all of that creativity and energy to his love life too. He’s a dynamic lover, invested in showing off how well he can take his lover to heights of pleasure. He has plenty of charms outside of the bedroom too, often drawing you in with his passion for life and the way he sees the possibilities all around him. This king sometimes has the vibe of a mystic too, so if you were hoping to find a spiritual lover, this could be the one! If you are already in a relationship, your boo might suddenly be on fire with a dream or develop a more positive outlook on the future, which will benefit your relationship too.

If the King of Wands comes up representing you in a love reading, it’s time for you be bolder in showing the world the things you are passionate about. That kind of enthusiasm is hella sexy! And while you are doing the things that light you up, your energy will pull in folks who want to be around that vibe on the regular. Be unapologetically authentic and the right one will be drawn to your shine.

When the King of Wands is reversed in a love reading, there’s a lot of jealousy to wade through. It might not necessarily be jealousy of another person, but one or both of you could be jealous of the other’s success, popularity, job, or even just optimism. From there, it’s not too far of a leap to sabotaging each other’s happiness, either passively or on purpose. This card can also indicate a twin flame situation that has gotten toxic. This relationship is going to need a lot of help in order to salvage it—if it can even be salvaged at all.

What is the Meaning of the King of Wands in a Future Reading?

Traditionally, all the court cards are supposed to represent people. This being the 21rst century, king doesn’t always equal male, as much as it indicates an individual with a more outward (as opposed to inner) focus. The King of Wands could mean that a person who is very creative with a bold, visionary outlook is about to come into your life, or that someone born under a fire sign (Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius) is going to take a larger role in your life in the future. This person may have some sort of leadership role and inspire others to share their vision for better things.

When the King of Wands turns up in a position representing you, the Universe may be nudging you to step up into a leadership role, or at very least take on more responsibility towards a cause you feel is important. This cause doesn’t mean saving the world singlehandedly (but hey, if you can, more power to you). The cause can be anything close to your heart, like volunteering at your favorite park on clean-up day or mentoring a young one in your life who needs a little guidance. The important thing is that your actions mean something to you.

If the King of Wands appears reversed in a reading, it could indicate that someone is trying to weasel out of their responsibilities. Someone who seems like a leader is actually a con artist—more interested in what power and position can do for them, instead of actually being concerned about the people they promised to serve. You need to be very wary of other people’s words. If you are getting a feeling that something feels fake or too good to be true, trust your instincts.

What is the Meaning of the King of Wands in a Career Reading?

The King of Wands in a career reading is telling you to keep your dreams big. While optimism isn’t a guarantee that you will end up with the job of your dreams, you absolutely need to believe that it’s possible for you in order to have a shot at it. This is an audacious royal. Take on some of his confidence and set your sites on positions that will challenge you or bring you more responsibility. You are more than up for the task!

If you are looking for a job, you may find one either in a company that values creativity or one that has visionary goals. Finding one in a non-profit organization or any place that is trying to change the world for the better is also possible. The idealism in this workplace is contagious. You might find that you are more motivated in other aspects of your life because of the positivity.

The reversed King of Wands in a career reading is a warning that you may be getting shortchanged or outright conned at your job. Management is going to be audacious all right, by paying you the bare minimum, giving you too much to do or giving you too little hours, while low-key making you feel like you aren’t worth better treatment. Even if it isn’t this dire, there’s a culture of lies that is deeply ingrained in this environment. That vibe is going to eat at you, bit by bit, until you make a break for it. Start planning your exit strategy sooner rather than later for the sake of your mental wellness. If this card came up reversed in a position representing you, you may be thinking about lying or covering something up to save face. This is a risky proposition, so you may want to look at the surrounding cards to get a better idea of the repercussions.
