The Kings are the Masters of their respective Element. So 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. By doing so, it is inevitable that he inspires others to do the same. The King of Wands is the consummate visionary who easily rallies others around him in support of whatever cause he is on fire for.
“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
Weaknesses of the King of Wands
The main weak point of the King of Wands is a lack of attention to detail. However, that is usually not a problem since he is charismatic enough to gather people around him who share his vision and are more than happy to help with the more menial tasks.
Another possible weakness can be arrogance and lack of understanding for those who, unlike him (or her as the card can signify either gender) are not as inclined to pursue success. It is quite amazing to watch how quick people are to forgive him his pride though. Others often wish to be near him just so that some of his boundless drive and optimism will rub off on them.
“Destiny is not a matter of chance, but of choice. Not something to wish for, but to attain.”
~ William Jennings Bryan
Affirmation: “I AM limitless and dwell in the realm of possibilities.”
King of Wands Prayer
Dear Mother-Father God, thank you for granting me a vision of limitless possibility. Inspire in me the best possible vision for the Highest Good and the courage to take bold action to manifest that vision. Amen and so it is!

The King of Wands in Love and Relationships
A natural-born leader, this guy is the Master of the Fire Element. If it is one thing he’s not short on it is confidence. Have you perhaps fallen in love with your guru or the CEO of the firm where you work? Maybe you are part of his group of rebels and he is in charge of organising the next coup d’état?
How close you get to him may depend on how willing you are to share his vision.
If you’re looking for a man to inspire you, this is your guy! He could sell snow to Eskimos. His optimism is extremely contagious.
He’s a straight shooter. You won’t need to second-guess him.
He’s adventurous and loves to surprise the one he loves.
He’s passionate and spontaneous and can make things really sparkle in the bedroom.
And he’s usually quite lucky.
He can be a bit of a clown and sometimes suffers from foot-in-mouth disease.
His spontaneity can go overboard and put himself (his health) and his family at risk (finances).
He doesn’t like to feel tied down and is one of the Courtiers most prone to commitment phobia. He can be quite authoritarian and tends to see the world in black and white.
Type of date he prefers
Anything spontaneous and active… surprise him!
Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents
Ohhhh… not so sure he wants to meet them at all. If he loves you, he’ll do it for you but only when he’s good and ready. Then again, if you tempt him with borrowing your dad’s yacht for a spontaneous weekend of fun and frolics in the sun…
In a far-flung place surrounded by strangers suits him just fine and appeals to his sense of adventure.
Type of dad he would make
The goofy side of his personality (it’s quite prominent even when he tries to hide it!) will love playing with the kids. He wants to make sure they grow up with the right values. He may bring his kids along for his travels or encourage them to travel on their own. At his best, he inspires independence and confidence in their abilities.
His best match
The Queen of Swords as a) she appreciates his philosophical side and b) she doesn’t mind getting married far away from her family and friends.
His worst match
The Queen of Pentacles because she a) usually needs to stay where she has put her roots down and b) values a man who knows how to repair the tractor over a man who travels the world and writes self-help books.
