Tarot: Knight of Wands

Emotional Turbulence, Changes, Relocating

The Knight of Wands isn’t necessarily a bad knight, but somehow he manages to create anxiety and emotional turbulence whenever he appears.

He has a strange tendency to disrupt the internal harmony of an established group or family, and their traditions of the past.

How does he do this? He likes to explore the new and the unknown. The Knight of Wands is all about change and transmutation.

He loves to travel, in a wandering kind of way. In fact, he could be a vagrant, or a floater – an intruder in your home even. But he always seems to be absent, or on his way out the door.

He likes to investigate and he often appears to be on a quest for something, either practically, mentally or spiritually. But that something seems to change with the wind.

Although he tends to live in the past and he’s sentimental to a fault, he needs something new, strange or different. He may even be drawn to the occult.

You won’t feel settled or at rest with this person, especially if you like to maintain the status quo without rocking the boat. A family, home or other established group or tradition will be disrupted with this card – for better or for worse.

When The Knight of Wands Shows Up In A Reading

Health and Body Image: Your food, wellness or healing protocol may need some modifications. In fact, you may want to consider a whole new makeover. Make sure your health routines consistently evolve so you don’t get stuck on a plateau.

Occupation and Finances: Do you like travel or buying and selling homes? The Knight of Wands is your confirmation card. Otherwise, look for new innovations or developments in your occupation or career. It’s time to break out of any ruts and change things up.

Relationships: Either you or the person you’re in a relationship with, or considering a relationship with, doesn’t like things to stay the same for very long. They might change directions on the fly. You’ll either need an adventurous or revolutionary spirit to keep up with them, or you can expect your frustration and anxiety levels to skyrocket.

Hidden Meaning: The Knight of Wands is the card of occultism and well as transmutation and transmigration. Nothing stays the same in this physical realm. Nothing. Our bodies, lives and experiences continuously transform into something new.

Reversed: Reversed, this knight is still an explorer but he lacks practical wisdom and good judgment. He might speak with unrefined ignorance or disrespect, especially about things you consider sacred or private. He can’t keep secrets. He might be hostile, intolerant or prejudiced. Communication with this person might be blocked for whatever reasons. Maybe there’s a family feud, or there’s dissension over social equality, or a disagreement over some kind of cultural tradition which needs to be abandoned. What we know for sure is that a reversed Knight of Wands indicates rupture, dissension or estrangement.

Advice: Whether you’re changing residence, changing a health protocol, career or relationship, or changing a belief or thought pattern… change is in the air. It’s likely time to leave someone or something, such as an old self-identity. With any kind of change comes emotional turbulence. If you can discover your love for adventure and wild rides into the unknown, you should be just fine.
