Card Meaning: Knight Of Wands
Leo, Aries and Sagittarius.
Age: young man less than 35 years of age.
Appearance: fair hair, grey or blue eyes.
Rampant warrior on a wild horse that symbolizes his uncurbed instincts and
passion is storming through the plains. Salamanders on his mantle and ornaments on
his armour describe his fiery and fearless nature. In the background we see the
Egyptian pyramids, probably indication of his adventurous nature. His courage is
not always good because partly it is product of his rashness and
lightheadedness. As a consequence this warrior often over-commits himself in
endeavours that are not worthy of energy he invests. He is a keen believer into
chivalry and will be first to help the weak and oppressed.
dramatic changes in events; moving away from one's residence, travel,
advancement into unknown, enthusiastic, atheletic.
impulsive, violent, restless, argumentative, jealous.
He is shewn as if upon a journey, armed with a short wand, and although
mailed is not on a warlike errand. He is passing mounds or pyramids. The motion
of the horse is a key to the character of its rider, and suggests the
precipitate mood, or things connected therewith. Divinatory Meanings:
Departure, absence, flight, emigration. A dark young man, friendly. Change of
residence. Reversed: Rupture, division, interruption, discord.
