The Knight of Wands card tells us about a young adventurer, full of energy, vitality and impetus, with a determined spirit. So, I had an idea based on a space traveler, which has an armor with technological applications. Our knight mounts an alien dragon; the dragon represents the fire, the corresponding element of the wands. I decided to work on a color palette with very bright and warm tones, based also on the fire element. The dragon is crowned with an antler, as a reference of Aries, one of the zodiac sign related to this card. To reinforce the sci-fi theme in the illustration, I created a background full of planets, constellations, stars, etc. I’m very fortunate working on a card with which I identified with in many different aspects, especially in its positive vibes.
When this card appears in a reading, it is a fiery torch, lighting a fire under you, and telling you (in no uncertain terms) to change it up a bit…you’re stuck in a bit of a rut and this card appears to tempt you to try something new and daring. Something that will infuse you with energy and help you get moving. Yes, you should think it through, but don’t get bogged down in making too many plans. Instead, allow your conviction and passion to guide you…just don’t let confidence turn to arrogance. And make sure that your enthusiasm and desire don’t turn into frustration and anger at the first hurdle – reign in your temper.
The Knight of Wands can represent a passionate, imaginative figure currently in your life, or coming into it soon. They are charismatic and daring, offering you a chance of adventure, an opportunity to say “to hell with it” and take a few risks. We’re usually attracted to them, like a moth to a flame…enjoy it, but don’t get burnt!
