Different Perspective

"Because fire itself symbolizes movement, the Knight of Wands shows this quality in extreme. He represents eagerness, action, movement for its own sake, adventure and travel."
- Rachel Pollack ~ SEVENTY EIGHT DEGREES OF WISDOM

The Gilded Tarot's Knight of Wands comes across so harsh, like his energy in action is negative.  Where as the same Knight's energy In the Fairy Tarot comes across as exciting and adventurous.
I quoted Rachel Pollack above because she stood apart and analyzed the cards from a esoteric and cerebral view point in her first book on Tarot.  She mostly used the Rider Waite Smith deck for her observations of tarot but had wide experience with many philosophies .
Starting my day with the energy of a knight could be a really good thing, but not energy of the knight in the Gilded Tarot.  It goes back in the box and in the back of the drawer, cause I am not sure I want to give this kind of energy to another.

  2. Wow, those two knights really are different. The stagnancy of the Gilded just doesn't seem to fit what I think of as the KoW's personality.

    1. When I turned him up after the shuffle my first thought was "Yuck" Can't ride on that kind of energy and get anything done. Good riddance.
