Card Reading

The King of Wands

king of wands tarot card

When the King of Wands has visited your reading, you are being reminded to not limit yourself.

It is important to be adaptable and versatile. Now is the time to act spontaneously, give yourself time to be like the Chameleon and change your colors to match your environment. Do not change yourself so much that you lose the connection to your inner self, but allow yourself some change so that you can learn that strength is being flexible and mutable. This card is symbolic of security and strength as well as personal commitment to spiritual growth. The King of Wands is blessing you with a visionary sight, which is energetic and random. Much like taking a course in Improvisational Theater now is the time to act in whatever way brings forth fiery passion from within. No rehearsal necessary. One must develop the sense of intuitive strength and the King of Wands, having mastered this art is here in your reading to help you graduate. Do not hold yourself back. If you have something to say, then say it and if you have been long wondering when you should take that job or take on a creative oriented career, now is an excellent time to do so.

In the Rider-Waite deck, one cannot ignore the presence of this fiery king. Salamanders and Lions surround him, representing the element of fire. Being the Ruler of the Suit of Wands he has the magic of the Magician at his disposal and brings forth the elementals to assist him at any time. The King of Wands is extremely generous and abundant even in his impulsivity; he will help you develop the leadership qualities that you need to move forward in the direction of your desires. This card can at points represent a man, blonde, with blue or hazel eyes usually married. If this is your representative card, then the King of Wands is telling you that you are a courageous, strong, passionate and loyal person who thrives in the traditional ways of life. He exemplifies adventure even in routine. Change while still keeping a level of stability.

He represents healthy, non-destructive growth and he is here to teach you how to honor the change in others, in life and in yourself. Sometimes his character is strong enough that he is capable of dominating others by his willpower so there may be an overbearing person in your life that this card is attempting to represent. If it is representing you then there is a clarity available that speaks to you learning how to believe in your own righteousness. Others will listen because often, you are right. Do not take others for granted; however, make sure to listen in case someone else has an idea better than yours. Life is all about the give and the take and the King of Wands expresses this to you now. You know what is right and what is wrong, and you know how to be naturally honest without being too pressing. The King of Wands is intuitive as well as fiery, introspective as well as funny. He is a vibrant father figure and a helpful spiritual advisor. Perpetuate masterfulness of the creative energy bestowed upon you by this King and you will go far.

The King of Wands reminds you that you have someone in your life that you emulate, someone that taught you what you know or someone that you look up to for having an exceptional sense of inner strength. Seek this person out and ask them for help on how to improve your own sense of self.

The King of Wands in Love When you are single, the King of Wands is telling you to embrace your own inner strength so that you can be more interesting and vital to the people you are trying to attract. Consider this the time for you to be more forward then you might normally be. The King of Wands says to keep a lookout for someone who is either older or just more experienced with a leadership personality as this would be an excellent match for you. Whatever you have going on in your life right now, he is telling you that you are walking through a transit where you could express more of your more ‘wilder’ qualities if you would allow yourself to. The improvisational, all-knowing and intensely intuitive nature of this card will push you on your way to having dynamic experiences. Drop the fear and let yourself be free to be who you are, and others will appreciate your presence.

The King of Wands in Health The King of Wands, when represented in a Health reading, expresses that now is the time to appreciate all that is good and vibrant in your body. You have allowed yourself to become too dormant, either because of pain or a fear of hurting yourself after healing from a disease or an injury. But this is the time for you to embrace the forward motion that is churning up within you. There is no need to worry about injuring yourself further, it is important that you build up your strength again so as to avoid future injuries. Physical activity is an excellent way to get through stressful situations. Take advantage of this transit by getting yourself out to breathe some fresh air.

The King of Wands in Work and Wealth  When your reading is about work and wealth, the King of Wands is on your side to make sure that you get as much abundance as is humanly possible in the moment. He tells you to invest, but to look out for ways that you can randomly make money. Keep in mind this Card’s improvisational style. You must be willing to make money at the drop of the hat by participating in random waves of interest and then ride that wave all the way to the end. In work the king of wands represents going for it. He represents that you are not going to sit back and let things fall into place. What is interesting is that this king is the finale of the suit of wands. In work this can mean you are going to achieve everything you desired. This card can also indicate that you may be able to take advice from someone that is experienced. Wands represent ambition, planning, driving and taking responsibility.  In readings, the king of wands also represents a business or self-employment. This card in work, career or business resonates to not give up. If things fail to learn from them and move on. 

Reversed Meaning - Kings of Wands The King of Wands only ever comes up in the reversed position when you are waiting too passively for life to happen to you. This is the point in your life where you must reconsider your priorities and commitments and if they are not absolutely bringing you what you want with precision then you must cut ties all together and use the creative power of the King to bring more opportunities your way. Remember that there are those that are not always who they appear to be but you must accept that possibility in all forms of life. Do not allow them to blow you off course. Seek internal guidance through utilizing your intuition and you will go far.

Wheel of Fortune

Wheel of Fortune tarot card

The Wheel of Fortune card is one of the most symbolic cards in the deck because it integrates Egyptian, Greek, Hebrew, zodiacal, animalistic, and color symbolism all in one card.

The wheel itself is a standard representation of the goddess Fortuna’s mythical wheel, including the letters R, O, T, A which make up the Latin word meaning ‘wheel’. This symbolism is true for just about every deck, however the Rider Waite deck differs in it’s inclusion of the YHVH symbols in Hebrew, which is the unpronounceable name of God. It also includes red as a standard power color showing that the universe has the power to grant your wish. The symbolism of the sphinx atop the wheel indicates that you need to be careful of what you wish for, as the outcome is known by the highly intelligent and intuitive creature. The figures in the corners of the card represent the elements, earth, fire, air, and water. The animals and the zodiacal imagery on the card represent balance, as if to say that everything is aligned in your favor.

Essentially this card denotes that your wishes can surely be granted, but you have to know exactly what it is that you want. It does not act as a fairy god mother card, allowing anything of your wildest fantasy to come true. No, instead of this, it asserts that your desires are within your reach and the universe is conspiring to help you in your goal. Because the universe is in harmony with your desires the “how” will happen easily. However, be sure your goal is within the realm of possibility not the fairy realm. Resist the temptation to succumb to greed this luck will not last forever so you don’t want to waste it. Once you have identified what it is that you want, then the gambling side of the Wheel of Fortune comes in handy. This is a card that tells you to play your odds. Determination wins out. The law of averages speaks in your favor. The more that you perpetuate something that you want, the more likely you are to receive that very thing, even if it feels impossible. These manifestation possibilities are endless and range in subject matter; from love, to money, to success, to happiness.

When the Wheel of Fortune is transiting your reading, this means that now is the time for you to take action, because the odds are better for you than the average person. Some times in life, this is not so, but if this card is coming up as a main representative in your life then it is like having a lucky ace in your pocket, except legitimately.

The Wheel of Fortune in Love  “To everything turn, turn, turn…” Relationships with others are balanced from the beginning fluttery stages to the boring ho-hum mediocrity of stagnation and even blood-boiling fights from time to time. In a healthy relationship there is cycle and nothing stays the same forever. If you haven’t experienced the changing stages of a long term relationship, then you are about to because drawing the Wheel of Fortune card says that in romance, one way or another your luck will be changing; and most of the time that change will be positive. If you happen to be one of the small percentages of people that think everything is perfect in your relationship, you may be in for a bit of a bumpy ride. The change aspect of the wheel is less dramatic than other cards in the deck, but it is there. Rather than representing an ending it is merely a shift in direction that is coming. This is also an excellent time to go into a joint venture with your partner, to begin searching for the perfect home to purchase, to begin having children or to make other big decisions that you think might be somewhat of a gamble. If you take some risks, the Wheel Of Fortune will bless you if it is meant to be.

For those seeking love, the Wheel of Fortune is a good sign indeed. If you currently have no relationship (and thus no fortune in the love department) then you have nowhere to go but up! The presence of the Wheel is a sign that there will be someone coming into your life that is new IF you remember to put yourself out there. This is not something that is going to fall in your lap, but if you make the effort the card denotes a possible relationship that could become a long lasting one.

Wheel of Fortune in Health Often indicating cyclic health changes, the Wheel of Fortune card refers to things changing either for the better or the worse. Depending on your current health state the card shows that there will be a difference or change coming soon. If you are having health issues you need to be mindful of where your wheel is currently, so to speak. Consider researching the Native American Medicine Wheel. Locate where your most common ailments are and begin tackling this. A stroke of luck generally accompanies this card and usually you will notice vitality and an increase in health… however also be mindful of taking advantage of your good health and pushing your own physical or mental boundaries too far.

Wheel of Fortune in Work and Wealth Usually when the Wheel of Fortune comes up in a work or wealth reading there is a hint of good luck and positive energies surrounding you at this time. Work and finances will come together and there is no need to make any drastic changes. You should consider continuing on with what you are doing right now and make sure to jump on any opportunities that come your way that might benefit your current circumstances. If for example you want enough money coming in that you can afford a Cherry Apple Red Jaguar, then what do you need to do? You need to keep a lookout for advertisements that describe your perfect Cherry Apple Red Jaguar and then jump on the bargain deal. Do not be afraid to take a chance, luck is on your side.

Reversed Meaning Of Wheel Of Fortune The Wheel of Fortune in reversed represents general stagnation and the need to be more active or mobile. It can also indicate that you are in an unlucky period in your life and warns against taking unnecessary risks. This will come up if you are a perpetual gambler and is warning you that you have strained yourself and the wheel will not support you. Take a break from gambling and consider working with what you have only for a time.
