King of Swords

Meaning

When the King of Swords arrives in your reading it could mean that you will have an interaction with a lawyer or police officer, or even just someone else in authority today. Be careful about speeding today! This card also sometimes says that a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius is about to make an appearance in your day. The King of Swords is not a bad guy. He is very intelligent, has a very high integrity, and is always seeking the truth. If you have a problem with him, then your authenticity may need to go in check. Don't be taken aback if he comes without a hug. He means well, he just doesn't show it the same way everyone else does.

Symbolism

With the King of Swords we see a man on a throne with an expressionless face, keeping a watchful eye over the land. Swords represent Air Signs and thus this card could be telling you a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius is in the picture, but is often an Aquarius. In other instances it could be someone that has a lay or a law of the land, such as lawyers, law enforcement, or some other figure of authority. This card brings with it the message that structure, order, and following rules and protocol is required in the situation at hand. If it's an emotional situation, take the emotion out of it and be realistic, and rational when making any decisions.
