Finally, the journeyer has arrived in the middle of the night to find the brilliant ninetails kitsune, the King of Wands, standing atop magma in front of a carved ruby throne resembling a phoenix. He has immediate commanding presence and represents the earth of the fire suit; the journey in the Suit of Wands culminates with him. He inspires, bringing enthusiasm and excitement to learning, instills and teaches confidence in others. He is a natural leader, choosing not to lead by force but the harmony of the natural order, and is creative, original, and inventive. When this card shows up in a reading it represents a man who is charismatic and is watched, imitated, talked about and is the focus of attention even should he seek otherwise. He is assertive when necessary, and earns respect through managing authority carefully and standing on his own regardless of what others may think. Opposition is confronted directly and if it suits him, non-confrontational methods are utilized. The safe and easy route may vary with energy levels and he always believes in his capacity to take calculated risks and come out on top. He is dynamic, passionate, loving and active, jumping in and creating results with- not forcing- others. This King is portrayed in a playful position.
