The Knight of Wands, Rods or Batons is young* man who has not reached maturity** yet. His vocation in life could be related to the element of fire, home or construction (for example a fire fighter, an architect, an engineer, a carpenter or joiner). The symbolic relationship to this card may not be vocational, it could be a description of his personality. In which case this youth may be passionate, fiery or changeable. He could be someone who prefers to live in the countryside than a town or city. Someone who has a love of nature.
In the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot The Knight is travelling on a horse from east to west and the horse is rearing up or prancing. It is important to note these details when divining who the symbology is talking about. This could, for example, mean a young man who is eager but changeable in his direction or someone who comes from the East across hot lands.
Finally, the symbology is never fixed in its interpretation as this card may not represent a person but a situation. For example it could be a warning about difficulties with travel or a car needing serviced!
*the age of this man could be relative to the person the reading is for. He maybe a mature man but a younger man.
**maturity happens between ages 28 to 37, when a man enter's his 2nd numerological life cycle.
