Knight of Wands Tarot Card Meanings
All the Knights represent an action or event of some description. Remembering our Royal Court, the bold Knights were action-orientated, serving the Kings and Queens to defend the realm or sent on quests and crusades.
The Knights can represent adolescence, although in readings I find it’s easier to focus upon the Pages as minors, then Kings and Queens as mature adults.
The Knight of Wands is the main card I look for to indicate someone moving home or changing address, which can be a very helpful indicator in relation to questions concerning house sales, and the like. However, sometimes it can indicate home renovations, although not too frequently.
An interesting twist is that if this card appears in the work area of the Life Spread it has usually shown where the person changes office within their existing organisation, it shows a change of location where they do they normal work, although not a change of job, (this would be Eight of Pentacles or Ace of Wands.)
The Knight of Wands is also a card to represent a long journey or travelling, sometimes it can be both rolled into one, representing emigration.
For those that read the Courts as facets of character, the Knight of Wands can be headstrong, exciting but dashes into things without much thought
Similar or supporting cards:
Ten of Pentacles (property matters) other cards representing travel (Eight of Wands, Six of Swords, The Chariot)
Opposing or contradictory cards:
Stagnating or slow cards, since all the Knights bring plenty of action.
Knight of Wands Tarot Card Combinations:
When you have multiple Knights it shows plenty of action and lots happening, usually with speed. Watch for the reinforcement of other travel cards (as indicated above).
In relation to house moves I usually look for the following to strengthen the association and interpretation: -
Ten of Pentacles (home, property) Knight of Cups (the offer) Ace of Pentacles (contracts with money and the new beginning) Justice (contracts) King of Swords (legal man, or Queen for lady) King of Pentacles (finance man, or Queen for lady)
Six of Pentacles (money exchange).
The World > Knight of Wands > Ten of Pentacles: adds to the international flavour of emigration and moving abroad.
> Six of Cups: moving back to somewhere connected to your past.
