Tarot Contemplation – King of Wands (reversed)

When the King of Wands appears reversed, it indicates that you or someone around you is having trouble with authenticity.  It could be that you are having trouble knowing what you truly want or who you want to be.  You could be doing things that don’t feel aligned with your authentic self.  Someone else may seem like a phoney to you.  You may come across someone who is a real charmer, but does not follow up on his or her promises.  You may be using authenticity as an excuse to do what you want.  You, or someone around you, may have an attitude that says, “I am who I am, and if you don’t like it, I don’t give a damn!”  Though it is important to follow our inner light, doing so with lack of consideration may be ill-advised.  The King of Wands Reversed could also be warning against risky behavior, such as gambling with your financial security or physical safety.  Ask yourself if you could survive the worst-case outcome of the risk you’re taking.  If not, a change of plans may be in order.  For today, sit down and think about your goals.  You have a very clear understanding of yourself, what you’re capable of and what you want in your future.  Use that energy to get intentional.  Not only can you set great goals today, you also have the energy to start working towards them!
