Reversed King of Wands as Reconciliation

If you are asking about how your ex feels about reconciling with you, and you draw the King of Wands reversed, it is a sign of extremes. On one hand, your ex may be very forceful in trying to get back together with you. On the other hand, your ex may feel coerced to reconcile with you. Your ex feels powerless either way. This could indicate somebody who is not ready to commit, yet is still guilted into committing. They might view you as a trophy partner, somebody they can show off to people in their social circles.

King of Wands reversed as reconciliation is a sign of conflict. Egos clashing, possessiveness, jealousy, and selfishness are all part of the package. It can be a sign of a volatile relationship. Explosive anger and manipulative tactics are red flags to look out for. In the upright, this King represents leadership qualities, in the reverse position this may indicate being overly controlling. Your ex might want freedom for themselves, but they’re not willing to extend the same freedom to you. Infidelity may be an issue when this card appears in the reverse position. If your partner felt coerced into entering into this reconciliation with you, they could lash out in unpredictable ways.

When your ex thinks about reconciliation with you, they feel as though they have lost their vision for your relationship. They feel unsure as to which direction it should go. They feel obsessed with the idea of wanting to possess and control you, while also not being ready for true commitment. There is a fear of missing out, and they may reconcile just because they don’t want to see you with somebody else. They could also lack a vision of what they would like your relationship to be, and end up giving mixed signals.

If you’ve recently split up, King of Wands reversed means this person is disappointed that your relationship didn’t manifest the way they envisioned. This person is stuck within their ego. Talking about reconciliation is not something they are ready to do right now. Don’t be surprised if they lash out into a rebound relationship. The more obsessed your ex is with you, the more they will lash out in unpredictable ways. It’s crucial for you to not take this personally. Let this person blow off whatever steam they need to blow off before approaching them.

If you’ve been in separation for a while, King of Wands reversed means that rather than being seasoned and matured, this person has become cynical and jaded. This person’s memory of you is bittersweet. They still feel a physical attraction toward you, but this person may have negative memories associated with the relationship. This person would never admit that they still think about you. This person might also feel a bit vengeful despite all the time that has passed. While they might be open to a reconciliation, make sure that it is coming from an authentic place of love. 

If the two of you are still considering whether or not you should break up, King of Wands reversed means that your relationship is currently very toxic. The two of you often argue with each other in a non-constructive way. Both of you are hurting each other and the relationship. What you need to know is that your partner is coming from a very selfish place. They are not interested in listening to your side of the story. They prioritize themselves. You probably do not have the same vision and goals for the future, and they are not likely to accommodate your plans into theirs. This is your opportunity to really assess if this is what you want.
