The Knight of Wands card shows a (very feminine looking) knight riding into battle. The knight holds a wand and the horse is charging forward. This card feels less violent than the Knight of Swords, but it is just as active.
This card, like all the court cards, can represent someone in your life, a role you play, or a message you need to hear. If it is indicating an actual person in your life, the Knight of Wands will be a lusty and free-spirited person who loves action and adventure.
