35-King of Wands – Reversed Rider Waite Deck

Your Chosen Card – King of Wands Reversed Rider Waite Deck

When reversed, the King 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 King relish the words of Ephesians 5:22: ‘Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as unto the Lord’ (KJV).

Complete Book of Tarot: Throughout history, all cultures have sought messages from the divine in the random happenings of daily life.
