Inspiring Enchantment & Illumination with Tarot & Intuitive Guidance

Tarot Card of the Week: May 28 – June 3, 2007

To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily.
To not dare is to lose oneself.
— Søren Kierkegaard

Get ready for a busy week! The Knight of Wands is here!

The Wands suit, of course, is about Fire, action, will, and energy. And the Knights of the Tarot are always how that suit is put into action. So, as Tarot writer James Rioux notes, “There is no card in the Tarot that portrays such daring and enthusiasm as the Knight of Wands. His energy and courage are boundless, and he has no fear of anything.”

The plumes from his helmet and shirt look like flames, and he wears the symbol of the salamander – mystical creature of fire. Unlike those on the King of Wands’ robe, however, his are open, without the tail connected to the mouth, representing incomplete plans, loose ends. He is just at the beginning of his quest, whereas the King has arrived at his mastery and accomplishment. The Knight’s horse rears up, eager to burst into action, dashing off to the quest.

The Knight of Wands is spontaneous, hot-headed, charismatic, quick to laugh or anger, and a creative blaze of activity. He is often charming, and pulsing with sexual energy. But he is also extremely loyal to his, understandably, huge circle of friends. While he can be impulsive and unpredictable, he takes his honor and integrity absolutely to heart, and is a true heroic figure.

This week, boredom will be in short supply. Riding the powerful energy surge of the Sagittarius Full Moon, this is an ideal week to begin a quest, set out on a new adventure, or perhaps commit to a creative project. This is probably not the best time for multi-tasking – the Knight of Wands is much happier (and effective) when he is focused, all his intensity like a laser beam of light and passion. When this is the case, there is no limit to the achievements possible.

If challenges come your way this week, saddle up your steed, and face them head on – as long as you are the honorable champion that combines might for right. And be generous with others, for you have energy and goodness to spare.

Speed, focus, daring – these are your allies. This week, tap into the fiery places that are your energy source and that fill you with passion. Then, like an arrow on fire, streak ahead to your goal and give it your all! Go for broke! There are worlds you can win!
