#TarotTuesday – Knight of Wands

Welcome to another Tarot Tuesday!

If you are just joining me, let me explain the inspiration to begin these posts. In Texas, and all across the country, Taco Tuesday is a popular day when Tacos are usually 99 cents. So, I had the inspiration, or Angel nudge as I like to think of it, to create a Tarot Tuesday. Each Tuesday I will post a different Tarot card and give its meaning. I pray and ask for the right card that will bring a universal message.

I created a short video to demonstrate how I pull the card for the posts. If you’re interested, here’s a LINK.

Today, the Universe brings to us the Knight of Wands!

The keywords that accompany this card are: Energy, passion, inspired action, adventure, or impulsiveness.

There are a couple of things worth pointing out about this card. The Knight sits on his horse in full armor, wearing a yellow robe decorated with salamanders (associated with the element of fire), and a helmet with fiery red plumes flowing behind him. He holds a sprouting wand in his right hand, which symbolizes his energy and enthusiasm for his mission. His horse rises up on its hind legs, poised and ready for action. 

That pretty much sets the tone.

When this card appears in a Tarot reading, you are charged up with energy, passion, motivation, and enthusiasm, and you channel that energy through your inspired action. You have a clear vision about what you want to create and, fueled by your passion and inspiration, you are now moving forward with leaps and bounds to turn your vision into reality. This card is your sign to go for it!

The Knight of Wands gives you the feeling you can take on the world! You are so committed to your vision and purpose that you will stop at nothing to bring it to life. As you pursue your goals, your confidence skyrockets, and you realize that your potential is limitless. You can do anything!

Be mindful that the Knight of Wands can express himself as an ‘act first, think later’ type of person. In your pursuit of action, you may be impulsive and impatient, expecting everything to be done yesterday. While you are bursting with energy, you have a tendency to rush into things with little consideration for the consequences of your actions. You may not have a clear plan of attack, hurting your chances of long-term success. If this resonates, find a way to focus your enthusiasm on the activities that will move you closer to your goal. When you have a new idea, rather than acting on it straight away, take a moment to check in and see if it truly aligns with your goals and whether it needs to happen right now. You may realize that you are better served by waiting for a more opportune time to pursue this idea. Or, you may realize that the time is now, and you can charge ahead with high energy and vibrancy.

Only each of us knows how this card resonates and what it indicates. To me, it is encouragement to keep forging ahead with my WIP. Even though I’ve given up on the 50,000 word count goal for NaNoWriMo, I’m still going and will make 30,000. And, I’m okay with that. Any writing is good progress! So, tell me. How does this positive energetic card speak to you in your life?

Thank you for joining me! See you next Tuesday for another inspiring message from the Universe via the Tarot Cards!
