I. Analyze and describe the Knight of Wands Thoth Tarot
Knight is the embodiment of the fiery power that makes a creative genius hidden in each of us and arouses it to step into the outside world. This is shown by the burning torch in his left hand, symbolizing the vision of introducing ways to recognize the new world.
His head (chakra crown) is decorated with winged horses, the symbol of innovation and the ability to move towards new goals because he sits on his wild black horse and heads up into the air. The winged horse figure in the center of the knight connected to the real horse, by the real horse with a unicorn horn on the forehead, an emblem of the instinct that was tamed. The horse is a symbol of instinct, and conversely, the unicorn can only be caught when trapped by a virgin.
However, the king’s cloak constitutes a fiery background and in front, there is a character who is shown to be creative beyond himself: this is his personal causal structure that has been woven into the foundation of daily life, connecting the lines of his actions to the destiny carpet that he moved simultaneously on (“traveler and the road is as one”).
He is not dependent on destiny, but he is destiny because God’s creative will exists in every fiber of his body. As theologians and physicists have said to each other, “The law of the universe changes itself gradually through the start of each of its parts.” The Knight of Wands, therefore, represents “Creator created” or “creative creature” that is prepared to take responsibility for its goals.
Only Zeus, the father of Gods, be mindful with this great primordial energy. He is a symbol of first power – always considering independence – finding new things to overcome old boundaries and opening up new opportunities. Zeus took over the rule that was inherently outdated and was an enemy of his father, Cronos. Before Athena was born from his forehead, he lived through and suffered from extremely loving and cruel sentiments of love. As a man of creative power, he cherished freedom to plant his wisdom throughout the world.

The image of the Holy Father is shown to comfort and useful to us, but it also draws us into our own notions because the self often prefers to strive for its own Lord rather than those super-personal value. Only in spiritual experience does this card connect the “I want” with the creative understanding of what “it needs in me” or what “I am missing”. This is not only a matter of expressing ideas about ideals or personal will but also about facing a person’s triviality. This King is manifesting a great maturity, demanding that we also become aware of the inner aspects that we are shy or embarrassed about.
