NOTE: Reversed cards now interpreted as Upright – with greater emphasis.
Wands represent the element of Fire, a living light emanating directly from the infinite; they stand for the spirituality inside us all – our human soul.
To rule justly and fairly, a King must possess wisdom and be of strong moral character. The Kings represent knowledge gained as a result of accumulated philosophical learning. The King of Wands questions everything that inflames him in order to pinpoint its psychological source. The wisdom he gains as a result will allow his “masculine fiery energy” to endure without burning out. The King of Wands IS creative, revolutionary, passionate, sexual, thoughtful, honest, and adventurous.
A very positive card, the King of Wands signifies an abundance of energy is at your disposal. The King of Wands also symbolizes mutual caring between two people and embodies one of the individuals in this relationship. This person is someone who has protective, caring feelings for you; they will do whatever is necessary to make the relationship work. Spiritually, you are well on your path of exploration; of knowing who you are and what you want.
(The Prince of the Chariot of Fire is Air in Fire, intellect in a firestorm. The King of Wands represents action, enthusiasm, maturity, and growth.)

In addition to the regular methodology I use for drawing my Daily Tarot Card, I’m starting to draw a SECOND card from the top of the deck (curiosity mostly, but also to compare the two):
10 of Pentacles – Earth
