Reflection questions

  • How can I balance the need for spontaneity with the need for stability and security?
  • Are there any goals or dreams that I have been putting off pursuing? How can I start taking action toward them?
  • Have I ever taken a risk that paid off? What did I learn from that situation?

Knight of Wands Upright

While the Page of Wands represents the spark associated with a new idea, the Knight of Wands is pursuing that idea. This person could represent you or someone in your life. The Knight of Wands thrives on challenge and pressure, like someone who waits until the last minute to complete an assignment and gets glowing remarks. They are ready to charge forward without fear of the challenges that lie ahead. Don’t wait for opportunities to come your way— take action and go after what you want!

Knight of Wands Reversed

The Knight of Wands in reverse represents someone who is impulsive and impatient. They might make mistakes because they’re working too quickly or run into unexpected obstacles due to poor planning. They also tend to be insecure, wondering whether they measure up to the competition. Like the Knight of Wands, you could benefit from making a plan before jumping into action. If you’re feeling hesitant or experiencing impostor syndrome, the Knight of Wands encourages you to “fake it ‘til you make it.” If you show confidence, others will believe in you and your ability to lead.
