The Son of Wands is a one man victory parade. He is a beacon of self-confidence and assurance. The wand he holds seems to literally be a beacon, sending out heat waves that ripple across the card.

The angle of his head makes him look like he’s marching with some swagger. The extended tongue just adds to this effect. If he could talk, I can almost hear him saying “I do what I want, and I do it well!” Rather or not this attitude is merited is still up for debate!

We can’t help but admire his self-assuredness, but it also seems to border on cockiness. He stares straight ahead – he might have a plan, but he certainly doesn’t seem to have a back up plan. He’s banking on one thing working, and might not have the maturity to deal if it doesn’t.

The Son of Wands is constantly seeking new adventures. He isn’t someone to stick around when things get boring or stagnant. He’s the life of the party, he knows how to be suave (but it can be hard to tell when he’s just blowing smoke). His priority is following his next great adventure, but he struggles to enjoy the present moment. He’s always up for a good time – but he might be gone before you know it!

In a reading, this card can suggest that you need this type of passionate, confident energy in your life. What feels hot to you right now? How can you dive headfirst into what lights you up? March towards excitement, but be cautious of the implications of your actions.
