Significant Details: The crown symbolizes authority. The staff symbolizes strength of will. The cinnamon symbolizes healing. The waters symbolize life forces. The mountains are the gateways to the spirit realm.

Keywords: Creative, Inspiring, Forceful, Charismatic, Bold

Medicinal Uses: The ancient Egyptians imported cinnamon from china around 2000 BC. “Carminative, astringent, stimulant, antiseptic; more powerful as a local than as a general stimulant; is prescribed in powder and infusion but usually combined with other medicines. It stops vomiting, relieves flatulence, and given with chalk and astringents is useful for diarrhoea and haemorrhage of the womb.” http://botanical.com/botanical/mgmh/c/cinnam69.html#med

My Interpretation: This may be a creative time for you. You may feel spontaneous or bold in your actions right now. You may meet (or already know) someone who is creative, inspiring and charismatic.

Thoughts/Points to Ponder: The King of Wands is the Airy part of Fire. The Kings are in Chokmah, the second sephirah, on the Tree of Life and are ruled by the Zodiac.

What is this king looking at? The cinnamon seems to be giving him strength.
