Knight of Wands Description

As “Mister Adventure”, The Knight of Wands is shown rearing his horse up on two legs. This controlled maneuver requires a lot of training between rider and mount, and is a highly symbolic announcement of action before action. It is also grandstanding.

Something big is about to happen. This card is testosterone feeding the brain. The result is a need for action, danger, and fun.
