35-King of Wands – Reversed Golden Deck

Your Chosen Card – King of Wands Reversed Golden Deck

When reversed, the Knight of Wands may come across as rather domineering and egotistical. His excessive pride and arrogance often turn people off. His stern and intolerant opinions can cause difficulties for those who are in relationship with him. Religious versions of the reversed Wand Knight relish the words of Ephesians 5:22: ‘Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord’ (KJV).

Keywords Reversed: Impetuous, fanatical, bossy, authoritarian, orthodox, patriarchal, egotistical, arrogant, stern, intolerant, impatient, unyielding, cruel, aggressive, overpowering, domineering.

Decans/Timing: 20 Cancer–20 Leo. Tropical, 12 July–12 August; sidereal, 06 September–07 October.
Astrology: Air of Fire. (Note the airy backdrop of blue sky, clouds, and mountain peaks in the distance. In the foreground, the hot dry dessert becomes a setting for the throne capped with the head of a lion. The salamander at the Knight’s feet is associated in mythology with Fire; the Central European ‘fire salamander’ has fiery golden-yellow markings on its back.)
Associated Trumps: The Chariot and the Sun.

Mathers: Man living in the country, country gentleman, knowledge, education; (R) a naturally good but severe man, counsel, advice, deliberation.

Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: … the meaning of divination cards changes over time, shaped by each era’s culture and the needs of individual users. This is partly why these decks can be so puzzling to outsiders, as most of them reference allegories or events familiar to people many centuries ago. Caitlín Matthews, who teaches courses on cartomancy, or divination with cards, says that before the eighteenth century, the imagery on these cards was accessible to a much broader population. But in contrast to these historic decks, Matthews finds most modern decks harder to engage with.’ 10

Complete Book of Tarot: The freeloader myth: never buy your own cards; they must be given to you as a gift.

Complete Book of Tarot: Tarot, on the other hand, has evolved to become a tool to tap into one’s intuition, understand one’s motivations, gain insight, and brainstorm. The modern focus on the use of the tarot has changed from fortune-telling to gaining perspective, clarifying issues, and taking responsibility for one’s life. The older fortune-telling aspects of tarot do not fit well with the current approach of empowering clients to make informed decisions. In fact, the majority of modern tarot readers prefer not to be viewed as fortune tellers.

Tarot Triumphs: It’s important to become familiar with the names and images of each card before trying out a Tarot divination. If they are new to you, I suggest that you get to know them all as if you were becoming acquainted with guests at a dinner party, or fellow travelers on an expedition. You don’t need to know everything about the Tarot Triumphs at this stage, but it’s crucial to be able to recognize all of them and have a sense of their key meanings. That way, your intuition can work with the card combinations because you have already absorbed the essential identity of the individual cards. You can use the illustrations in this book, your own pack, and the two sets of descriptions that I’ve given earlier to get to know the twenty-two cards. It’s good to master the numbering too if you can, but it’s not compulsory at this point. We’ll discuss the sequence of the numbers in the next chapter.
