33-Lord of Wands – Reversed Salem Deck

Your Chosen Card – Lord of Wands Reversed Salem Deck

When reversed, the Knight of Wands warns of travel difficulties and disharmony in relationships. His unpredictability can catch you off guard. He may suddenly change his mind and take off without warning on some half-baked adventure. Remaining responsibly committed to a relationship is not his strong suit. This Knight may light fires that he can’t put out.

Keywords Reversed: volatile, indecisive, unreliable, cruel, intolerant, recklessly unpredictable, irresponsible, stuck in a rut; discord, alienation, disruption, abandonment, unnecessary risk, avoidance of commitment, a break-up in a relationship.

Decans/Timing: 20 Scorpio–20 Sagittarius. Tropical, 12 November–12 December; Sidereal, 06 December–04 January
Astrology: Fire of Fire.
Associated Trumps: Death and Temperance.

Etteilla: Change, departure, flight, alienation, displacement, emigration, moving, relocation, abandonment; (R) separation, parting, breach, discord, disruption, discontinuity, interruption. (Note that the Knight of receptive Cups arrives whereas the Knight of outgoing Wands departs. Cups, being watery, are emotionally oriented and inner-directed. Wands, being fiery, are energetically active and outer-directed.)

When Lord of Wands is reversed you can pretty much take it that life is going well but that’s when life takes us by surprise.  If Lord of Wands is unclear it may help to choose a card from the Major Arcana to provide more insight into what it is Lord of Wands is trying to tell you.  If you had a particular issue in  mind, or want to seek clarification on something else, you can also choose again to get more guidance.

Book Details
Portable Magic: The final stage in the realization of the ritual purpose is represented by the Six of Cups, which bears the title Lord of Pleasure. This card is a good choice for initiating a period of steady growth and success. It is the Sun ruling the second decanate of Scorpio, and also the Sun in Tiphareth. The Sun in Scorpio indicates both heat and penetration. Scorpio concerns the critical phases of transformation in life, resulting in a kind of rebirth. The Sun is the life principle of wholeness and self-integration. Its action in this card is uncommonly strong because it not only rules the decanate of the card, but the Sephiroth where the card resides on the Tree. Tiphareth is the centre of the Tree, the sphere of complete balance and harmony. The pleasure of this card is the pleasure of desire realized. Crowley called this card ‘one of the best in the pack’ (The Book of Thoth, 182).
