King of Wands Tarot Card, in its core, represents stability that comes from the tempering of desires. This card is associated with the Fire element, representing the Zodiac signs of Aries, Leo, and Sagittarius, and its season is spring.
King of Wands Meaning
When drawing tarot cards, usually they are put in a vertical setting, spread on a timeline of the past, present, and future. In this kind of drawings, the King of Wands may come up upright, as well as reversed. Some psychic readers like to read reversed tarot cards. Some don’t.
Either way, the other tarot cards in the drawing will make up for the way the psychic reader conducts their readings because a Tarot Card deck is connected to the energy of the psychic reader, so it ‘talks’ to them.
Merging the qualities of the “King” and the qualities of the “Wands Suit,” the King of Wands card would represent:
|Masterminding new strategies||Being artistic and inspiring|
|Being an influential, natural leader||Instilling confidence in others|
|Creating an atmosphere of excitement||Setting an example|
|Commanding presence||Being charismatic, theatrical|
|Attracting others like a magnet||Someone may be watching you|
|Earning and giving respect||Being imitated and talked about|
|The focus of attention||Being unconcerned for others’ opinions|
In a reverse position, the King of Wands would mean precisely the opposite of its core qualities, bringing in the drawing:
|Being forceful or trying to dominate||Acting like a dictator|
|Not reliable||Setting bad examples|
|Not proactive||Being ineffective and powerless|
There are also spreads where the tarot cards pulled are placed on vertical as well as horizontal positions. If the King of Wands would sit in a horizontal position, it means you may be facing someone or a situation challenging your power.
This card advises you to acknowledge how you are executing your power, if there is anyone you are hurting on your way, or if you can do things better. You are a natural leader, but this doesn’t mean you don’t make mistakes.

King of Wands – Love and Relationships
The King of Wands in a relationship reading means that you both evaluate the other partner’s ability to be independent, not needy, or too demanding. You believe that in a relationship, you should provide room for growth for both of you and that no one is the leader or the head of the relationship, but you can both take turns, depending on the day and the situation.
How someone sees you or feels about you?
They see you as someone confident, and they are very protective of you. They know how to give you what you want and provide for you and the family if you have one. Usually, the King of Wands represents someone that is Alpha, that if he finds himself in a supportive, healthy relationship, he will give out more than he takes. They have warm feelings for you and feel like even though you are independent and strong enough to care for yourself, caring for you is exciting and fulfilling to them.
Just starting dating?
If you have started dating this new person, the King of Wands indicates somebody with whom you may have a romantic relationship that possibly lasts long and even turns into a marriage. Though you should not be dependent on them, financially or emotionally, you should respect their privacy. They will respect yours. If you can trust them and remain independent, not too pushy or demanding, or even needy, then you are the one for them. Otherwise, they will run.
What not to do?
In terms of what not to do, it would advise you not to try to force your opinion on others, no matter how great they are or how right you are. Sometimes, the ones that are asking for your support are not going to take it, and not only that, but they may be closed-minded people that just can’t understand where you are coming from. Not everyone has your mindset and values, so you need to know where to step away from such relations.
Reverse Position (Love and Relationships)
A reversed King of Wand would indicate that your person has significant commitment issues. They may be flaky, breaking promises, or even abusive. They force their dominance on you. They may belittle you and become a burden for you. It is not the relationship that could survive unless you accept their authority, and you do whatever they want you to. It is a toxic relationship that you need to get out as soon as you can. The lack of empathy and support from your partner is abuse, even if they never hurt you physically.
King of Wands – Finance, Business and Career
The King of Wands pulled in a business-related question would indicate that you have a status, a long experience, confidence, leadership skills, and the wisdom that comes with it. You undoubtedly know how to apply your knowledge, and you may be a mentor to someone else, or hold the position of the boss or the leader in your team.
Regarding finances, they seem pretty good and growing with a steady rhythm. You are in control of your finances, and you are good at managing it. It may also indicate a new idea or innovation in some cases.
What not to do?
In business, this card would advise you to allow others to show themselves their skills and complete a task by themselves. You don’t need to lend a helping hand every single time. Instead, see what they can do by themselves. This way, you can evaluate your team’s capacities, abilities, and what they’re good at. It will also help them grow and earn experience. You can check later and make adjustments where needed.
Reverse Position (Business and Finance)
It indicates that you are failing to commit to whatever your work line is, failing to put dedication in and failing to make decisions. You are almost waiting for benefits to fall into your lap without even lifting your finger. You act entitled, and you are not. If you are in a position of power, a boss, a leader, a mentor, you are possibly bullying your team, too controlling and demanding, out of reasonable requests. In a matter of finances, it may indicate that you lack some knowledge, which in turn will withhold your growth.
King of Wands – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the King of Wands, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest pretty soon. How soon is that? It would be kind of complicated because it would mean springtime, of a Zodiac Sign season Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming pretty soon. From there, you would figure out the time. For example, if it is summertime when you are doing the reading, it would not indicate that your desire will manifest in spring. The highest possibility is that it would manifest during Leo Season or the upcoming month.
In Tarot or any other divination works, it is rare to foretell the future in years because the choices we make along the way alter that future a lot.
