KNIGHT OF WANDS OVERVIEW
The Knight of Wands gallops along a beach on her stallion, and they charge full steam ahead towards that passion project that she’s been dreaming about. But wait, what is that in the distance? A campfire? A beach party? Full stop. She’s nothing if she’s not spontaneous, and whatever it is, it looks like an adventure waiting to happen. (Which is indeed the thing that she craves most.) She jumps off her horse and joins the party, grabbing a borrowed djembe and an impromptu tune. Her passionate, fiery energy is magnetic, and since she’s got charisma in spades she quickly becomes the life of the party. After a few laughs, she remembers that her scattered energy can often be the cause of delays in her life, and the very thought of setting herself back has her frustrated by her own fiery nature. She tunes into her purpose, and as quickly as she arrived she’s off again, chasing her dream and becoming her most vibrant expression of self.
