Knight of Swords Interpretations

He does not delay. The Knight dashes through the air with the swiftness of winds and the turbulence of flame. He is seen as wise-man, maybe the one who formulates combat strategies; However, he is probably also seen on the battle-field executing them. I see this individual as some one who could bring humor into their wrath, not dwelling on things, but moving through them with touch-and-go.

Additional Interpretations

“He i active, clever, subtle, fierce, delicate, courageous, skillful, but inclined to domineer. Also to overvalue small things, unless well dignified. If ill dignified, deceitful, tyrannical and crafty.” 6

“Represents the fiery part of air. A man, active, skillful and clever, fierce, delicate and courageous but often unreflective. Ill-dignified: A man incapable of decision, deceitful, tyrannical and crafty.” 5

“Represents the fiery part of air, wind and storm; the violent power of motion applied to a manageable element. He is represented as a warrior with a helmet bearing a revolving wing, and mounted on a maddened steed. He carries a Sword and a Poniard.” 5

“Dashing through the air this knight embodies al the winds of heaven.” 5

Axank’s Dream Recall

May 12-13, 2014
I believe I was building some kind of model home—then burned it. My father was unpacking some florescent-tube lights that were tinted deep-red. He was also apologizing for what had happened with the old ones.

The model home ending in destruction maybe is an act of the Knight of wands… and the way I see my father at times, in relation to him getting replacement lights, could mean he destroyed the old ones in a rage.
