The King of Clubs (Wands) is a forceful character, a highly-creative personality who is also a strong leader. Think of some of the most brilliant, charismatic artists and performers and how they put themselves forward on the world’s stage. They were filled with this King’s fiery, outgoing energy. This card, reversed, comes up now to suggest that you should try channelling some of this energy into your own life and work. Don’t hide your light under a bushel! Open up the gates and let your ambition run wild! At the same time, though, be careful to respect everyone around you, listen to their viewpoints, and accept their assistance where necessary. You can have a laser focus in pursuit of your dreams but you will meet with greater success if you have a strong support system behind you. And be sure to help others when they need it. A true leader is considerate of every member of his team and their well-being.
