“Why am I so restless all the time and need to change everything in my life to stay happy?”
The Knight of Wands is connected to the astrological fire sign of Sagittarius. The Wands are connected to the summer season in the northern hemisphere and the winter season in the southern hemisphere.
The Knight is another Prince, connected to the Royal Court, in the Tarot. He is the Page’s older brother, growing into his role, as the next King.
The Knight represents the spark of creativity that will enter your life suddenly, which may represent a time of travel, a sudden relocation or move, a change of job or career. The Knight may also represent a new lover entering your life, or a lover that is ready to leave your life. The timing of this card is fast and you can expect something to happen with sudden rapidity!
If you look closely at the card, you will see the Knight is in a big hurry, the hoofs of his horse are rearing off the ground, and his horse has wings that further help the Knight to move at a blazing speed.
The Knight holds a blazing torch in his left hand which represents fire, but fire is also a metaphor for action, speed and desire. The Knights right hand is controlling the reins of his horse which represents that he is in control of his surroundings, and his environment does not control him. His blazing torch represents his guiding north star that will lead him in the right direction.
Here is a short story about the Sagittarius constellation: Once upon a time Philyra and Saturn had it all figured out – they were never going to get caught – they were going to cover their tracks – they made sure they had a good alibi – they decided to change themselves into horses.
Philyra and Saturn turned themselves into horses so they could have an affair and become secret lovers. By turning themselves into horses, they became incognito to everyone around them, and the reason they did this was because Saturn was married.
Later, Philyra became pregnant and delivered a bastard child named Chiron. Chiron was born a Centaur, half horse and half man. Philyra was so ashamed that she abandoned her child and Chiron grew up alone in isolation because he was different. The Knight’s connection to the Sagittarius constellation makes him feel different, and maybe the reason for the Knight’s restlessness!
The Sagittarius fire sign represents strength, courage, pride, drive, and vitality and is known as the explorer who is always on the move and radiates a need to feel free to be at peace with him-self.
Sagittarius is ruled by the planet of Jupiter, which represents good fortune and health. Jupiter gives a sense of well-being, agelessness and immortality. The planet Jupiter also represents the man a woman will marry, but be careful with the Sagittarius, because they are also known as the bachelors of the zodiac.
Sagittarius cannot stay in one place too long until they are ready to do so. I always wondered why that was true, but if you look at their zodiac sign, you can see they are represented by the archer and the horse, the symbols of travel. Sagittarius needs to explore all areas in life that they have not experienced.
When the Knight of Wands comes out in your reading, you are going to be consumed by restless creativity. The Knight of Wands also represents a person that is about to change their residence. In fact, they are always changing everything, including the places they live, their cars, jobs, clothes, friends, lovers, just about everything they touch. Since the Knight is young, he is still learning about himself and going through a growing phase that requires him to be constantly on the move and seeking change.
His impatience deters him from waiting idly, and there is no holding him back from his desire to be on the move. He is charming, enthusiastic, fun, passionate, and a good lover. When the Knight is ready to settle his restlessness settles down because he feels at home and is not in a hurry to travel and change everything in his life all the time.
