The King of Wands card portrays the king sitting on the throne holding a blossoming wand in his hand. The blossoming wand is a symbolic representation of life and creativity.

The king wears a bright orange colored cape. His crown is shaped like the flames of fire. These represent the energy that the card exudes. This throne and cape are decorated with the figures of lion and salamander, symbolic of the fire and strength.

The salamander can be seen biting its own tail which reminds us of the infinite cycle in which life moves - life moves forward no matter how many obstacles it may face.

Upright Position: This card is all about passion and energy. The subject is thought to be a leader and visionary. Once the person sets a goal, she/he sticks to it by all means. People are naturally attracted towards the king. The person enjoys challenges and does not shrink from finding solutions to different problems. The person is respectful and compassionate towards others. The card may bring news of upcoming new opportunities. It may also be a message to lead a life that has a purpose.

Reversed Position: When reversed, this card speaks of a person who is arrogant and egoistic. The person is aggressive in her/his pursuit of her/his goals and does not mind attaining it at any cost, whatever that may be. The person shuns from seeking assistance even when the person is unsure of whether she/he is heading in the right direction. This is a trait for destructive obstinacy. This person is so used to being the center of attraction that she/he may take others around him for granted.
