The physical and emotional nature to which this card is attributed is dark, ardent, lithe, animated, impassioned, noble. The King uplifts a flowering wand, and wears, like his three correspondences in the remaining suits, what is called a cap of maintenance beneath his crown. He connects with the symbol of the lion, which is emblazoned on the back of his throne.

Meanings

Dark man, friendly, countryman, generally married, honest and conscientious. The card always signifies honesty, and may mean news concerning an unexpected heritage to fall in before very long.

Additional meanings: Generally favourable; may signify a good marriage.

Reversed

Good, but severe; austere, yet tolerant.

Additional meanings: Advice that should be followed.

Thierens

TRADITION

Country gentleman, man with good intentions and yet severe, honest and conscientious; may be a peasant or agriculturist. Eteilla calls him the father. Marriage, union.

THEORY

Higher octave of the ace, lord of the suit of Air and the mind; coming on the First house. What may have led to the legend of calling him a country gentleman and bringing the whole suit of wands more or less in relation with the country, is not clear. He is the lord of the intellectual kingdom, consequently he may denote every authority or personality of primary importance in some or other intellectual, mercurial or mercenary line. It must be some one representing a high authority himself or uniting opposite interests, while he himself, on account of the same authority he represents, may not or cannot be contradicted. Now we want to put in a remark here concerning the court or personal cards in general: in the practice of divination they are generally taken to indicate persons, and this comes out very often right enough. Still they ought first to be considered as principles; the personification of these principles in men and women comes in the second place only, but is important, of course, in our daily life. So the King of Wands must represent intellectual authority, mastership in the domain of the mind, trade and language.

CONCLUSION

A governor, director of business, high official, postmaster, solicitor, manager, independent trader, Secretary of State, and the principles or functions for which they stand. The house of Mars imparts austerity, security and generally initiative and honesty; in weak cases there may be, however, some doubt with regard to his absolute integrity. He may be the authority, who concludes a union, viz. notary, clergyman or civil authority. In the church he is the High Priest, in the lodge the Grand Master.


Paul Foster-Case

The Hebrew letter Yod in the triangle represents spiritual power. The card represents the force of will in the world of ideas.

Time period

From the beginning of the third decanate of Pisces to the end of the second decanate of Aries, March 11th to April 9th, combining the forces of Mars in Pisces, Mars in Aries, and Sun in Aries.

Meanings

Ardent, impulsive, influential man, one possessed of authority, and strongly marked by the quality of leadership. Somewhat hasty in temper, but just, generous and friendly to the Querent.

Ill-dignified

He represents the same general type, but cruel, ill-natured, intolerant, and probably unfriendly to the Querent.

Appearance

Red-gold hair. Gray or hazel eyes.
