35-Master of Wands – Reversed Salem Deck

Your Chosen Card – Master of Wands Reversed Salem 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).

Book Details
Portable Magic: The members of the Golden Dawn may not have understood why elemental Earth must be omitted from the Hebrew letters, and consequently from the trumps of the Tarot. They made an attempt to slip elemental Earth into the Greater Arcana correspondences through the back door, as it were, by creating a dual association for the final trump, the World. In most tables of the correspondences based on Sqbher Yetzirah and confirmed by the Secret Chiefs, the World receives only the planet Saturn, but in some documents of the Golden Dawn where the correspondences are shown (Regardie, The Golden Dawn, 6th ed., 651), and in similar documents of Aleister Crowley (The Book of Thoth, 2’78), the World is also given elemental Earth.

Tarot for Beginners: The Lovers card read reversed could indicate a misalignment of values, or disharmony in an area of life related to relationship with others or with self. Commitment issues and/or break-ups may be indicated, especially if one partner would rather pull away than work through difficulties. Whatever comes of the choice made by you or someone you care about, it will ultimately be for the good.

Reversed Cards: Have you ever been stuck at the departure gate at the airport or worse, on the tarmac? If you have, you know exactly how this card feels when it is in the protection position. You are all set and ready to fly away, move on, and get going, but instead—nothing. You just sit there. No movement whatsoever. Complete bummer. Most of the time you find out why after the fact, which is more than likely the case with this card as well. Knowing why it is in the protection aspect won’t serve you in any way. If anything, it will only aggravate you. But later, after you have arrived at your destination, hindsight will be a beautiful thing.
