Weekly Card King of Swords

140501 RWS King of Swords

Rider Waite Smith Tarot

 You are now in the high court of the land and would do well to hold your tongue while you look, listen, and learn.  The King of Swords is the authority and decision-making position in the Tarot deck.

You’ll remember that each Court Card has its elemental association from its position in the Court and its suit.  King of Swords is the Fire of Air card.  Kings are the robust and constant energy of the Court.  Swords have to do with ideas, concerns and communications.

Have a respectful chat with the King of Swords while you have his presence this week.  Let him teach you about clear communication.  Ask him about logical analysis and planning for your projects.  Learn what you can about how to discriminate rationally.  Ask him to show you the crux of the matter when you’re ready to make decisions.

The King of Swords upholds law and order, so this is not the week to explore rebellion.  Instead, deepen your understanding of the things around you.  Think about what you would do if you were the mastermind in your own life.  Remind yourself what the King of Swords lives by, that Knowledge is Power.

May the intellectual force be with you!
