Zoom Workshop – Getting to know the King of Wands
19 March 2023 @ 1:00 pm - 1:30 pm
Without a doubt, interpreting the court cards is one of the great challenges of reading the Tarot. In this session, Linda Marson shares her favourite way of reading them, focussing in particular on the King of Wands. Depending on whether you use reversed cards or not, Linda believes court cards represent 16 or 32 ways of responding to situations. If you focus on the rank and element associated with the suit, you have a sure fire way of working with the court cards to see how your client and others in their lives are behaving towards each other and responding to whatever issue is being explored in a reading.
Wands is the suit of fire, so the court or people cards associated with this suit should be fiery, full of enthusiasm, passionate about causes, they should fire people up! Kings and Queens are the top-ranking court cards, so what sort of occupations would you associate with the Kind of Wands?
This will be a lively, interactive session where you have the opportunity to swap ideas about the behaviour and attitudes you could expect from the King of Wands. In what field of work would they shine? Politics, show business, marketing? How would you expect them to behave in personal relationships and family life? And keep in mind that, depending on the issue being explored, a woman could easily turn up as the King of Wands in a reading!
