Man (or Woman) on Fire
The King of Wands is a charismatic leader who is able to inspire people to follow him along on his journey. He’s enthusiastic, and he has a talent for convincing people that he has the best plan of action for whatever needs to be done. People admire his confidence and are therefore more likely to follow him. Someone clearly believes in what they are doing can often fill a void for people who are not sure what to do. The King of Wands will fight for what is right. They are not afraid to take on the opposition.
So it’s hard not to look at this card this morning without also thinking that there are only 33 survival gear shopping days left until the US presidential election. Because really, the King of Wands has all the qualities one needs to be a high profile politician. And there’s nothing wrong with that. As a wise person once said, “it’s not the technology. It’s what you do with the technology.” Or in this case, energy.
Along with all the leadership qualities the King of Wands has, as opposed to the other kings, he (or she) has more of a propensity for narcissism with all its trappings. I’m not saying that all wand kings are like that, but there is a dark path that I have seen politicians go down time and time again. Once they are in power they cannot be seen to be unworthy of it, and they certainly can’t do anything that would cause a majority of voters to take that power away. So they will twist the truth a little here, cross their fingers while making a promise there, and get all self-righteous and angry if someone points out the flaws in their policies, despite the fact we can all see the gaping holes. As bad as the Internet can be for disseminating misinformation, it is ridiculously easy to use it to verify whether someone is telling the truth, so much so that I can’t believe everyone isn’t doing it. But then all the meme makers would go out of business, I suppose.
If you are one of these political kings, you owe it to yourself and everyone around you to have a strong sense of integrity. Remember, it’s called public service not self-service. That probably sounds like political suicide in modern politics, but some people seem to be doing a pretty good approximation of it. Granted, none of them are running for president (anymore).
