The Meaning of the "King of Wands" Tarot Card

(Applies to the upright position)


The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:


The King surveys his empire with confidence and vigor. Salamanders and lions adorn his throne and cape, and a small salamander skitters at his feet. He holds his flowering wand as if braced for action, even though he is sitting down. His fiery crown and the other symbols resplendent throughout the card represent his domain of fire.



The Meaning of the Tarot Card:


This fiery and honest man represents successful mastery of the attributes of fire. The King of Wands embodies loyalty, focus, and success in war or similar business ventures. The lions and salamanders on his throne, his cape and at his feet are his servants, they do not overrun him. This card always represents the quality of honesty in a spread, the type of honesty that wins loyal friendships. With the King of Wands in any position in a spread, victory over the situation is almost always guaranteed.


The King of Wands is also a very robust figure that represents the very peak of machismo. If this comes up for a woman, it will almost always represent a lover in her life. If it comes up for a man, it means that he is doing something right - in the bedroom or boardroom. This man is a man of conquest and desire, ever ready for the next challenge, and only the rest of the cards in the spread will tell you if he is likely to stay around.
