King of Wands

A stern King in fine red and gilt robes sits on a simple throne. He holds a wand and a small lizard sits on the arm of his throne. A copper shield with a rampant black lion and a rich Persian carpet hang on the wall, and there is a fire burning beside him.

My Interpretation: A man of many talents.

A charming man, witty and enigmatic. Virile, strong and fiery in nature, with a tendancy to be a little hasty.

(Reversed: A crisis may be brewing, and you must keep your head. A ruthless man may try to crush your resistance).

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've added more symbolism to assist readers. This card is different to the Rider-Waite card, although hopefully still easily recognisable as the King and Wand are fairly obvious. Does the face look a bit Ewan McGregorish, or is that my imagination?
