Prince of Wands (Air of Fire)

 

Prince of WandsPrince of Wands (Revised) by G A Rosenberg

 

Burning to create
His passion fueled by new thought
The eternal quest

 

Self-directed
Beholden to no one
I build my flame
and speed of movement
I devour everything in my path
yet do it with a love and passion
deeper than any you’ve known

 

Mind-stimulating
Seducing your senses
I tell you reasons
that lie beyond madness
I dance swiftly body and mind
yet do it with logic and voice
sweeter than any you’ve known

 

All-Sides Seeing
Committed to Nothing
I argue any position
and take it in stride
I glow with brilliant intensity
yet do it with humour and jest
warmer than any you’ve known

 

The suite of Wands deal with force-creative, spiritual, and vital and are associated with the element of Fire. Princes deal with the transmission and the endurance of the energy, the result of the union of the King’s Force and the Queen’s generative and nurturing of the energy. He combines the spirituality intrinsic to Wands with the quality of intellect inherent to the Princes. He is generous and honourable yet mischievous and tormenting. He is swift in movement and in his interests and his energy can cover a lot of diverse ground very quickly. He has an amazing and constant sense of humour and sees the funny side to just about anything and while he may seem cruel in his jests he is seldom ill-intentioned. Due to his innate ability to read others, he can often sense just how far he can take the joke without going overboard. He is romantic and loves to be exposed to anything that is novel and new including cultures and beliefs. At his worst he will descend into cruelty and sadism and leave behind scorched wreckage in his wake.

 

Astrological Correspondence: 21° Cancer – 20° Leo Elemental: Air of Fire – This combination of Cancer and Leo qualities could be seen as a mystical extrovert. Ever able to create spiritual connections and then communicate them outward. He would have a love and appreciation of beauty but due to his ability to see beyond the surface he would be able to perceive beauty where others would not. He may be seen to have many ideas that are extreme and unusual in nature tho due to his charismatic nature he will always have people who will listen to him.

The hexagram for Fire is over that of the Mountain. As fire spreads over the mountain swiftly, this hexagram speaks about constant movement as a way of continuing abundance. In this way more can be learned including the ways in which one must modify their behaviour when among strangers. Usually this hexagram speaks of things of short duration such as lawsuits but can also represent that once we have experienced what we have come to any particular place to experience then it is time to continue onward.

 

The Prince of Wands in a reading can often refer to a person or energy who is going to change your world oft times in a very literal sense. This card can often signify a change in residence or environment. It often refers to an energy that springs into your life with little or no warning. This energy is often difficult to resist so it is best to let ourselves get swept up into things so that they can be taken care of in the best way possible.The Prince of Wands can also refer to a new project that we should approach with lots of enthusiasm but not so much that we lose sight of the objectives. With this energy, honest and realistic communication oft becomes a necessity

 

When the Prince of Wands turns up reversed in a reading, it can mean that things have gone awry and are in a state of confusion. It may mean that we have been expecting things around us to fall into place and have become thrown when we have not met with the cooperation that we have been expecting. Usually this happens when we have failed to pay attention to details. The Reversed Prince of Wands may also mean that we find ourselves facing unexpected delays

Sun The Gentle Wind
Chen Arousing Thnunder

This Hexagram is about one whose energy and movement can help save the world. Someone who gives himself feedback and improves therein.

The Knight of Wands inspires as he burns. Wind guides fire and the Knight of Wands is guided from within. Slow to decisions but quick to action. He is almost always in activity, mentally and spiritually. His own opinions are arrived at slowly but he will argue any position for the sake of the discussion itself. Charismatic, he draws people to his orbit, but they must keep offering him something new, as he grows bored quickly ever ready for the next adventure.

While Astrologically, the Knight of Wands has mainly Leo rulership , the last decan of Cancer brings in some interesting characteristics. A sense of timing, rhythm and creativity comes with this energy. The moon’s influence here can cause vacillation. If the Knight can avoid this vacillating, success can be possible, otherwise there may be much of the talkative spiritual dreamer about him.
Luckily the first decan of Leo lends some ‘staying’ power, pride and authority, stubborn yet people-pleasing.The second decan of Leo with its Jupiter influence also lends a well-developed sense of humour to the mix.

When this card shows up in a reading and it does not refer specifically to a person, chances are an adventure is in the offering, one that could involve things happening very quickly . What I refer to as rabbit-hole time
Reversed, there is a feeling of false starts possibly due to over-confidence. It can also be cautioning against being too cute for the room as in charm wearing thin
