Knight of Wands Description and Symbolism


The Knight of Wands is on an amber colored horse, riding through the desert. His horse looks as if it is rearing up or about to jump. This signals a lot of action! The Knight of Wands is holding his wand straight up in the air. It looks strong and steady. He is wearing a yellow tunic over his armor. The tunic has black salamanders on them. Typical to the wands court cards, the tunic has salamanders on it. The tail is closer to being swallowed, but not complete like in the King of Wands. Yellow symbolizes passion, ego, and self esteem. This knight is very confident.


We see his fiery red feather playfully fluttering in the wind. It looks like it has sprouted from his helmet. His feather looks more like fire than a feather indicating the fiery, take charge attitude of the Knight of Wands. It also indicates growth from the Page of Wands smaller feather into a larger more blossomed and flourishing feather sprouting from the Knight of Wands armor. In tarot, feathers represent the evolution.


The etymology of the word pyramid comes from the Greek word meaning fire. In the Page of Wands, Knight of Wands and Queen of Wands we see pyramids, which represent the element fire of their suit.
