In the Crystal Tarot version we see a red-haired young man upon a white horse, draped in a blue-green cloth. The man wears an orange overtunic, decorated with a wand that is the suit emblem for the pips of his element. The associated crystal is Kyanite, of which the book says: "Kyanite will aid communication skills on all levels and help slow you down, so you don't fly past and miss opportunities." That fits well with notions of this Knight charging off gamely chasing whatever has most recently caught his fancy :)
The image makes me think of the way we often miss what is right under our noses, so intent are we on some goal, real or imagined. I wonder what is under the horse's dress... Okay, I couldn't find the official name for that kind of thing, though a soft pad that goes under the saddle is called a numnah - I kid you not! The point is, the Knight may not know what is going on right underneath him, as his focus is out there in the world.

Personally, I would have thought that the Knight of Wands would need the opposite - something to calm him down. I guess, though, that aconite would help give someone his energy and hot-bloodedness...
I have a couple of projects I'm quite enthused about at the moment, including the intention to buy some pens today to write on these Crystal Tarot cards! I don't like always having to look in the book to know which crystal they represent ;) I'll post some scans/pics once they're done - if I haven't ruined them in my Knight of Wands haste :/
I am grateful for the reminder that passionate enthusiasm is all well and good, but we also need to take time to see what is right in front of us.
