Watcher Angel Tarot (SpiralFire Studio, 2010) gives us another Court card to examine.
This time it is the turn of the King of Wands, subtitled The Visionary. There's something about his pose that I don't like, it seems indecorous and arrogant. All that fiery power and authority, and he treats it so casually.
Yet the keyword gives quite a different, far more positive, perspective on this King. He is someone with vision: he wields power because others have seen that his ideas work, and that he is confident leading them.
Perhaps I am only uncomfortable with this image because it feels so far from my own experience. I prefer to work freelance because I dislike others having authority over me, and definitely don't want to be the boss either.
My Dear One can sometimes be a bit of a moral absolutist, and that's something I see in this card, also. So, perhaps today this card is about acknowledging his point of view, accepting that it's how he deals with things, and then figuring out how I can make things okay for me, too.
I am grateful for a man who, while absolutist, is also loving and supportive.
