The Knight of Wands in Love and Relationships

If the Knight of Wands signifies the one you carry your torch for, you might want to know a bit more about the pros and cons of dating this guy.

He might be a Leo or an Aries or just generally very charismatic and ‘fiery.’  He’s flirty but he can’t help it… right? If he’s mostly a good guy, keep reading. If he’s a bit of an a**hole… What are you doing hooking up with him?!


He’s fun-loving and knows how to show his date a good time. He’s not afraid of attracting attention and usually doesn’t mind public displays of affection. He can be very generous. Young or not he’s usually sexually experienced which means you’ll have a good time doing the horizontal samba.


He can also be very selfish. This is not all bad. The Knight of Wands type person can teach us ladies a thing or two about looking out for number one. He is so very good at it!

Type of date he prefers

Action, please! Bungy jumping, ski diving, downhill skiing, paintballing, skinny dipping… You get the picture.

Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents

Tricky with this one as it may never happen. Commitment isn’t his forte. Your family could perceive him as self-centred. Don’t make excuses for him. It is what it is. He may come around one day once he realises the importance of family. I mean, who else is going to look after the kids when he whisks you off on a romantic mini-holiday?

Wedding style

Las Vegas, baby! Be prepared for the annulment two days later when he sobers up. Or things could go really well if you are on the same adventurous wavelength and continue to have fun together. Prepare to grow younger rather than older together!

Type of dad he would make

Absentee, most likely… but if he’s around he’ll teach your kid some killer moves on the Xbox. Hide the games with inappropriate age ratings if he’s around younger kids. Discernment isn’t his forte either. The kids will love him though. Basically, he’s a big kid himself.

His best match

The Queen of Wands as a) she won’t put up with his nonsense and b) she’s not likely to get too heavily attached emotionally.

His worst match

The Queen of Pentacles because she would a) expect him to behave responsibly and b) be a good provider.

Situation, Challenge, Opportunity and Action Advice

Situation: A departure is imminent

Challenge: Don’t be an attention hogger… Oh, and check any safety gear carefully before you jump out of the aeroplane!

Opportunity: An opportunity for travel or adventure

Action Advice: Start having some more fun. Now may not be a great time to look for ‘The One’ but that shouldn’t stop you from dating.
