Knight of Wands Upright Meaning:

In this successive and continuous history that is the tarot, those ideas that were in power in the previous card, the jack of wands, are now effectively put into practice by the knight.

Like all court figures, this gentleman can talk about you, your attitudes and your personal moment, as well as refer to a third person, who may be very close to your environment or perhaps a stranger, usually a young man. or middle-aged.
