From the Book

King of Staffs

A scaly-winged dragon coils around the base of a flaming staff. His crown is formed naturally by his scales; he has crowned himself.

Tarot wisdom: Our primitive animal passions are the source of our life energy. They must not be vilified. The dragon coiled around the staff is synonymous with the kundalini force, a serpent-like energy which coils at the base of the spine and is the source of psychic power. This is a card of inner strength. It tells us that we have energy in reserve.

In the card the dragon is guarding the knowledge of fire.
Not just any fire -- but the inner fire....
