Tarot Card Comparisons: The Thoth- Knight of Wands & The Witches Tarot-King of Wands

The Tarot of EliThe Witches Tarot- King of Wands, is the  Knight of Wands in the Qabalistic Thoth Tarot.  A. Crowley called the traditional Kings- Knights, because he wished to suggest their active nature as battle-warrior Kings.

The Witches Tarot-King is shown bearing a blooming Hawthorn wand, smiling and leaning towards you, implying he is an eager and wise leader. The Gleaming gold crown, studded with rubies suggests high spiritual and mental development. For in the language of minerals, rubies represent crystal clear and sharp mind.

The sign that he is a mature and wise King is also implied as his tri-colored hair.

His golden outfit, complete with heraldic lion and voluptuous red cloak, are also in the colors of Fire, the Element of this card. Lions, are the symbols of royalty, sun and power and are shown both as arm rests on his throne and on his golden chest.
Around his neck is the golden chain of office, that is also studded with rubies.
The blazing red and gold sky of sunrise is behind this, passionate, and generous king. This implies not only the element of fire, but a positive depiction of a new day and fresh possibilities.
He has one foot forward, as if eager to be off of his throne and into the thick of it.


Thoth Tarot- Knight of Wands:

The dramatic Knight of Wands, is called the King of Wands in most other decks. Crowley and Lady Freda Harris, wanted dynamic motion and protection applied to these traditional Kings so they are rendered as Armored Knights/Battle Kings on swift chargers. His power radiates from the Crown that is Kether, which is also Eheieh in Hebrew meaning "I Will BE!" There is no doubt here, his goals must be achieved.


The Court Cards are roughly descriptive of persons whose Sun or rising sign at their nativity, falls within the Zodiacal attribution of the card.

The Knight of Wands represents the Fiery part of Fire---The Lightning flash, and he rules from the 21st degree of Scorpio to the 20th degree of Sagittarius.

This is an active personality archetype. The qualities of generosity, fierceness, impetuosity, pride, impulsiveness, and swiftness in what is most often unpredictable actions.

If ill defined, he is evil-minded, cruel, bigoted and brutal. This ill definition will be shown by the cards around him.  Often, because he is "as a lightning flash" , if he fails in his first effort, he has no resource, so he is strong willed and merciless.
Obviously when needed, this Personality trait can be helpful when the goal is known, and the issue at hand is well thought out. However, this is not the trait of this card, so the Querent is advised to  be apprehensive, yet calm and resolute while being energetic. Beware of untimely action and go forward with aware confidence of their own ability. This is a revolutionary personality, startling in its passion, and perilous in its charge as shown with the Dark Horse leaping.

Here is the "Hard Charging" of Sex Force,(represented by the flaming Ace of Wands in his hand) which is Kundalini in the lightning sense of masculine electric force. A real steady mind is needed to handle such explosive force/god power and the only safe bet is that this force is well contained in the Magnetic Force of the Female--within or without, the individual.
That is why Shiva's Dance is with the Goddess Shakti; both in rhythm. For the "Cooling forces" of the "Water" (woman) aspect of magnetic female force are needed here.  Without this female balance this personality is quick to anger which easily flashes into rages and violence. If a lot of cup cards, or a  Princess or Queen are thrown in this reading, the querent may rest assured that the water is there to handle and/or contain this volatile  part of personality. 

At the best of times, this is a great personality, bold, adventurous,  and a "Proper Spear Point" in battle, as long as their is the Female empathy, and mercy qualities balancing it.  Otherwise, a perfect demon. Fiery part of Fire is not easily contained and the person or querent  who has this personality archetype will raise up just fine from childhood, if they have understanding parents who won't try to "drug them down" from high levels of activity but rather channel this powerful person into many activities that capture their attention. Needless to say, active parents work  well with this child personality. Abusive parents will easily turn this bright flame into a horrendous monster.

We have the Fire of a Dragon here! This is the fiery nature of the Yod [Spirit] which in the mind is shown as Willful and stubborn.  It may help you to know that Spirit is Power and is not always friendly. Spirit is will---and sometimes great will can cause great harm! Here is an internal "burning" of divine frenzy "to Be", so it can go either to good or bad.

WHEN THE KING OF WANDS OR KNIGHT OF WANDS IS THROWN DURING A READING:
  • The Querent is a person who loves country living.
  • One who is wise, educated and intelligent.
  • Evolution and change taking place at a deep, passionate, core level of inner self.
  • Experiencing a sense of conviction.
  • Achievement-oriented, creative, and self expressive.
  • The ability to be ones self.
  • Positive male power. A powerful personality capable of achieving long term goals and handling  difficult situations.
  • A master of wit and charm.
  • A decisive, mature male, who is a harmony of outer and inner self.
IF ILL- DEFINED OR REVERSED:
  • One who is dogmatic and critical.
  • Ill natured and violent.
  • Intolerant and prejudiced
  • Unyielding..
