Course Update

Hello to all my Tarot Friends around The World,

Knight of Wands Upright

Yes, I have been missing for a while but am back now and I have been very busy. Some of you know that I have been unwell and unfortunately my health has not been great in the last couple of months. During that time writing was difficult but I am feeling much better now and have some good news for you. The Knight of Wands has been re-written and is now ready for viewing and reading. Be warned though. I got quite carried away writing about him so there is a lot to read. Really, I could have said a lot more about this dashing Knight but one must draw the line somewhere, and I also have to finish his fictional drama. You have already seen the first instalment, and for those who enjoyed it, the second instalment is due for posting in the next couple of days as I have also been working on that too. So you see, I have been keeping myself busy and not lying around recuperating or feeling sorry for myself.

As with all the other Cards, there is detailed information on the Card Imagery and Description, along with Personality ProfilingKeywords and Meanings for both the Upright and Reversed version of The Knight of Wands.  They are also to be found in the sub-menu of Lesson 2,  Part II, The Court Cards. 

Should you only require the Keywords and Meanings, then they can be found in the SectionThe 78 Cards -Brief  by clicking on the link The Knight of Wands. This section is being created as I finish re-working each Card. There is still a great wealth of information available in this section and is probably most suited to those who just want to find out what their Cards mean rather than an in-depth study.

So without further ado, let me introduce you to The Knight of Wands. Just click on the link or on the image below and you will be brought directly to his Page. 

The Knight of Wands

Knight of Wands Upright

I do hope you enjoy reading about this very charismatic young man and I look forward to bringing you the next exciting instalment of his fictional drama. We will see what he has been getting up to since we last visited his castle where we left the King and Queen of Wands, along with a certain Lady-In-Waiting impatiently awaiting his arrival. All were eager  to welcome him home from his foreign crusades and victorious battles.

I have some Reading Practice Exercises prepared in relation to The Knight of Wands but I will give you the time to read and study his personality before posting them. By the time you have finished, you will know and understand the nature of this Knight inside out and be very confident about interpreting him in a Reading.

Then we will move on to The Knight of Cups, but I think you have enough to be going on with for the moment.

    • Thank you Janet for your concern. I certainly hope to improve even more over the coming weeks, and trust all my hospital test results will be fine. I do hope you are enjoying reading all about the Tarot.

  1. Hello Vivien,

    I am overwhelmed with the amount of knowledge and insight you have so freely made available to everyone. Not only is it wonderful to have access to the deeper understanding of the tarot that so often goes unseen and which is surely needed to interpret the tarot insightfully and with any real relevant meaning and accuracy but, is is also exceedingly generous of you.

    Some subjects ie tarot; astrology being another I find very difficult to learn, absorb the information effectively and work proficiently with. I have personally tried to study this subject on many occasions but found it all too much for me, there are just so many levels to it.

    As much as I wanted to learn and gain a deeper understanding, try as I might I was not able to break it down and collate in a way that would easily make sense to me, it such a huge subject. I often lost heart and then motivation, it seemed like a maze to me, although I kept trying to find the answer. You see, it is not enough for me to use just my inner guidance and intuition- although of course these skills are part of the key to unlock the insight into the tarot. I needed to understand the relationship between the cards and their relevance to each other along with a hundred other questions that I never quite managed to formulate?! ……yet?!

    With your guidance and help I think this time I might actually achieve my aims…ever so slowly! I am really rather excited and am so very grateful to you.

    It amazes me that you have also been working on this with such poor health too. That surely is a dedication of love. I am glad to hear you are starting to improve but with your permission I will now add you to my healing list?

    Bright Blessings to you dear Vivien.


    • Thank you, and yes, please add me to your healing list. I can do with all the healing I can get my hands on right now. You call my working with poor health, dedication while others call me insane. My partner has to prise me away from my computer at times. I am feeling mighty good at the moment and it might even be down to the healing you sent me, so blessings be to you. I have been managing to get exercising again and back on my bike. My balance was gone for over a year along with several other health problems.

      To be honest, The writing is just pouring out of me and it is something that just has to be finished, but of course Tarot never is. Some times I read back on my work and wonder where the hell did all that come from? I can’t remember writing half of it. About 6 months after my son died from cancer, I went to see a Medium who was renowned for her work. My son came through immediately and he spoke of many things but he did want to talk to me about my Tarot writing and to stop this starting and stopping writing that I was doing. He said that I needed to sit down and just write. He also told me to go back to my healing work. He said his hands would work with mine for both. Maybe I am channelling as I write, who knows but I am so glad I have got this far. I am very disciplined and write most days, regardless of health issues. I just wish I had more time as I do love to make my dolls as well.

      I have great plans for this site, which is really only beginning and there is so much more to come.

      I hope you keep finding inspiration and insight, and also answers to some of those hundreds of questions swishing around in your mind.

      Blessings Be,

      Vivien (your Tarot Teacher)
