Card in Reverse:
In reverse, the King of Wands can come off as being arrogant and rash. They can be quite aggressive when it comes to completing their goals, which they may or may not be aware of. Instead of leading with the intention of helping others, they lead with only themselves in mind.
At this time, try to be aware of the things you say and do before actually doing them.
Right now you may also be feeling powerless in a certain situation, which is making you frustrated. It's causing you to try and force things to happen, which only seems to end up making things worse and push other people away. We can't always control what happens around us. Instead of focusing on trying to take control of something you can't, how can you adapt and work around it?

Upright: The King of Wands in love can be a fun and exciting card. The person you are with or are currently pursuing has a thrilling energy to them. It can sometimes be a bit exhausting, and they can sometimes have a fiery personality, but they always seem to turn everything into a good time.
If you've been with your partner for a long time, this card is a blessing. The love between you two is strong, passionate and deep. You both may not always get along, but you have the maturity to work through any situation.
Reversed: There is a chance that the person you are currently pursuing has a bit of a bossy side. They can come across as arrogant and aggressive at times. They may bring you excitement, but does the good outweigh the bad?
If this isn't the case, maybe it's time to take a look at your own actions. If you've been struggling in love, is it possible that you come off as a little too pushy? You might be doing it without realizing it, and that's okay, the King of Wands is here to remind you to be aware of your actions and behaviour. You can't force love, and pressuring anyone in any shape or form will only lead you further and further away from it.
