“A leader has the vision and conviction that a dream can be achieved. He inspires the power and energy to get it done.”
~ Ralph Lauren
The Kings are the Masters of their respective Element and the King of Wands, being the Master of the Element of Fire, is the Master of anything his heart desires. His driving force is the desire to express his own unique personality fully and to shine brightly in the world.
His weak point is a lack of attention to detail but that is usually not a problem since he is charismatic enough to gather people around him who are inspired by his vision and more than happy to help with the more menial tasks.
Another possible weakness is arrogance and lack of understanding for those who, unlike him (or her as the card can signify either gender) is not as inclined to pursue success. It is quite amazing to watch how quick people are to forgive him is pride though. They often wish to be near him so that some of his boundless optimism will rub off on them.
This quote could have been penned by the King of Wands himself:
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, but of choice. Not something to wish for, but to attain.”
~ William Jennings Bryan
Affirmation: “I understand that I am as powerful as I think I am and banish any limitations to my power now.”
