In a Tarot reading, the King of Wands can represent you or an important man in your life. Sometimes, the cards suggest that you take on the qualities of the King of Wands, especially if this card falls in an advisory position.
In some Tarot card decks, such as The Wild Unknown, the King of Wands is called the Father of Wands or Batons. However, the Tarot card meaning of the Father of Wands/Batons and the King of Wands is the same.
King of Wands General Tarot Meaning
The King of Wands represents pure passion. When he makes an appearance, it means that the person represented by him is consumed with the pursuit of the things they want. Not only do they have the drive but also the know-how to achieve their desires. Like the Queen of Wands, the King is a step up in maturity, persistence, and skill to the Knight and Page of Wands.
Confidence is a defining trait of this King. He enjoys being somewhat of a center-stagist. Perhaps he played sports in his younger years or has an interest in sports. In his older years, he is likely to be a boss, business owner, or in charge of others in some way. The King of Wands often represents men who are in authority. He is also knowledgeable and well educated, even if self-taught.
Usually, the King of Wands appears as someone who is business-orientated. They have good ideas and like to take charge of others. They are typically on the cutting edge with their creativity, inventing the iPhones, software, and solutions of tomorrow. You (or whoever is represented by the King of Wands) have the power to shake things up in your life.
The King of Wands is certain of his convictions and will argue his case to the end. However, he can be dictatorial in his views, preferring to think of everything in black and white terms. The King of Wands will make it his mission to encourage other people to convert to his way of thinking. Regardless of this trait (or because of it), The King of Wands can easily amass himself a following.
King of Wands Love Tarot Meaning
The King of Wands is not too bad when it appears in a love Tarot reading, and some readers interpret its meaning favorably. Generally, the King of Wands does not make a bad life partner. They are willing to go out and work hard for their families. While he may be enthusiastic and creative, he is not the type to prioritize partying over his loved ones.
The King of Wands is much more secure than the Knight or Page of Wands. He knows what he wants, and usually, Tarot Kings settle down with their partners, as they are at that stage in life. If the King of Wands represents you, this means you’re the one who’s ready to commit to someone, even if you’re still focused on your career and work.
I will say that the King of Wands can be difficult to live with. If you’re certain of the things you believe in but this clashes with what the King of Wands thinks, this could become a problem. The King of Wands can be an extremist. If the King of Wands appears in a negative reading, it can mean that they are not willing to listen to your opinion or change their minds, even if they’re in the wrong.
