The neck break speed at which the Knight of Wands rushes toward his goal can be exhilarating – as long as he’s headed in the right direction and there are no potholes in the road.
Feel free to add any other unpleasant highway metaphor: speed traps, blown radiator, traffic jam, etc.
Anything that threatens his need for speed can turn the Knight of Wands into the Knight of Whines.
Quite often, it’s his own fault. The highly volatile mix of air and fire tends to make him restless and edgy.
Sometimes, he’ll blindly rush into things without bothering to think about the consequences. For example, in the heat of an argument, he may say or do things that could seriously jeopardize a friendship, relationship – or job.
If this is you, it’s better to say nothing at all until you’ve calmed down. Even if you’re right. “Sorry” may not be able to fix the mess you could create. If this is someone else, chances are he’s already regretting his actions.

He’s a frightening opponent when faced head on. But he’s usually so full of himself that it’s not all that hard to knock him off his horse.
