Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position)

The Symbolism in the "Knight of Wands" Tarot Card:

The young knight charges into battle, full of trepidation and purpose. The worried look on the face means that he knows what he is getting himself into, but is doing it anyway. The desert underneath his horse, the flames suggested by the horse's mane, and the flaming plume on his helmet almost suggest that the Knight is a pure embodiment of the element of fire.

The Meaning of the "Knight of Wands" Tarot Card:

The knight is all purpose, all energy. A situation is being galvanized from inaction to action. Desire, charisma and loads of potential are contained in the Knight - the cards that surround him determine whether or not it will be focused enough to produce results. A more literal meaning of this card is a move of some kind. This is likely to be a literal move of location rather than a movement from one relationship to another. It is a move borne out of necessity; note the speed at which the Knight is moving. He is either running away from something or towards something, depending on the situation and the card's position in the spread.
