The Knight of Wands is the Tarot card that suggests we are very ambitious and motivated people. Our emotions are strong, and experiences intense. We are very creative, imaginative, dynamic and confront circumstances with real passion. We have good communication skills and make good teachers. Sometimes people may think that we are too opinionated, which is not true, it’s just that we are not afraid to voice our opinions. We know we can be wrong, but our paths to achieve our goals usually turn out to be the best and most efficient ones. When we find something that greatly interests us, we put our heart and soul into it. But unfortunately we have a tendency to lose interest in things very quickly, and then we tend to altogether drop the project, which can be tough on people who depend on us. This also happens to be true in our love lives. When it comes to relationships, we have difficulty in committing ourselves to one person, because we love freedom, variety and abhor the concept to being tied down to one person or one situation or one place. A relationship with us can last, though, if our partners constantly bring fresh ideas into it to keep it exciting. A reading of this card indicates change – maybe travel, shifting to a new location or taking up a new project.
Each of the four suits of the Minor Arcana is divided further. Four Court Cards are
extracted from each Minor Arcana suit, and they are classified under each category – The King, Queen, Knight and
Page, signifying their specific traits. This makes the total Court Cards as 16. The King is creative, inspiring and
bold, and wants to create a lasting impact on the world. The Queen is attractive, energetic, cheerful and
self-assured; she does not impose, but subtly influences circumstances. The Knights may be termed as extremists,
they express their qualities to the utmost limit. For instance, if they are cautious, they will be cautious to a
fault, weighing all the pros and cons meticulously before taking a decision. The Page motivates us to enjoy the
thrill of mental and even financial challenges.
