Street Wise Hercules


"Where's the streetwise Hercules to fight the rising odds?
Isn't there a white knight upon a fiery steed?...

...He's gotta be strong
and he's gotta be fast
And he's gotta be fresh from the fight.

He's gotta be sure
and it's gotta be soon
And he's gotta be larger than life!"*

* * *

Here is wildness, sweeping in and making himself known. Showy, but with control. The I-NEED-A-HERO guy of song. His style has a sense of mystery due to his armor, while at the same time you KNOW who it is.

There is somewhat less control of his use of energy - Wildfire!
He's joyful, brilliant, strong. There is a sense of overwhelming (perhaps a bit overstate?) passion and bravery. Courage, daring, someone looking for a cause to champion and preferably a LOST cause. There is also loyalty, fearlessness and nobility shown here. He is proud, and has the capacity to be aggressive, even violent, if the situation call for it.


In the same kingdom landscape, the Knight makes a splashy entrance. His body, though barely covered, is protected in the places which are most vulnerable (head, heart, loins). As a companion, his fiery steed is full of his master's energy. The knight's helmet is that of a lion. This harkins back again to the Magician.

This card can also mean a journey or a change of residence.

*song for Knight Wands: I Need A Hero by Bonnie Tyler


  1. I LOVE that song! And the knight's impetuous energies! You can't help but root for the fellow!

  2. Hi Leigh! Yes, oh to have his energies! I think just being around him would create a whole new level of experience. :) I also love that song. I was so hoping that I could use it somewhere in my meetings!
