Knight of Wands Tarot Card Meaning

Element: Fire

Function: Function: Will, activity, Imagination, Beginnings

The Page of Wands has matured and acquired armor and a strong horse. He bravely ventures forward. He is still wearing his tunic with salamanders, a sign of passion and the power of fire, the ability to turn thoughts into reality. His tunic is now ripped, perhaps he tore it trying to get it on over the armor.

His new armor is white, the color of youth and naivete. His horse is chestnut, reflecting the enthusiasm and high spirits of the color orange. Now that he has his armor, horse, and an air of check and boldness about him, he is ready to go. But we wonder if he has all that it takes to transform the pages desires into reality.

We aren’t sure where he is going or even if he knows. Maybe he doesn’t care. He is still in the desert so might not have an idea of what lays ahead and what is going to occur when he gets there. There are three mountains or possibly pyramids in the distance. They represent challenges but the knight rides away from them.

This card represents a time of contemplation and dreaming that is now over and action that is now about to be taken. It could point to the planning stages or even the first step to achieving your dreams. Actions will derive from the initial desire and the confidence to be triumphant.

The Knight of Wands can also point to someone who is foolish, too confident and slightly arrogant. The self-focus of this card means t isn’t about achieving something together, or about developing a strategy. Although the knight is handsome, he is still a boy. His daring character and charm are something you see in a man who hasn’t matured and thinks that youth is all you need.

This man has no concerns for others or how his actions may affect everyone else. Unlike the other cards in this suit, there is nothing except the man and his horse, not even a wand. With nothing else on the card, the knight is able to concern himself with just his needs and desires. With nobody else to worry about, he can act without thinking beforehand.

When Reversed:

In this position, the Knight of Wands is a sign of self-importance. Literally speaking, movement is denied or blocked. It might mean that being overconfident leads you to fall flat on your face when you make a move. You may be completely impractical regarding your capabilities and gifts.

On the other hand, it could mean that you don’t have enough faith in yourself and that you fear any sort of transformation or action. You fear and anxiety could be. So powerful that you are completely unable to move.

At the other end of the scale, the Knight of Wands can suggest someone is impulsive and reckless in their behavior. This person does what they want and when they want to without thinking of any consequences.


Your spontaneous actions in the past were not without thinking of the potential consequences first. It suggests that you were wiser than your years as a child. It is not a bad idea to look into the past and see how you were different from how you are today.


There might be one very important challenge coming up for you. You might be looking for greater meaning in life. It might also mean that you are craving a getaway and even a weekend trip will open your mind but better yet, a trip to a foreign country. Expect good news soon.


Your future will be just as you had hoped as long as you make an effort for it. Use a combination of passion and your abilities to get what you desire. Start seizing the opportunities that are available to you. Learn to say yes, especially if this helps you come out of your shell.

Yes/No Question:

The answer will be yes.
