Tarot Court Cards

Court cards indeed have a strong personal touch. Unlike the numbered cards who show the elements against the background of the 10 Sephiroth and are more likely defining various steps of a process, the Court Cards reflect personal human attributes within the elements, and the elements within the elements.

So a more frequently appearing of court cards within a reading implies that personal feelings and emotions are more important than various steps of an ongoing process, wether for the person who is asking or for the cards that are answering. The differentiation between a personal feeling and a step of a process is very important in reading the cards.

King of Swords

“You have a special connection to laws, rules, authority because of your analytical and logical mindset. Research before implementing your decisions.“

A king is sitting on his throne with a double-edged sword in his right hand. The right hand is the hand of the rational and conscious mind, and the left symbolizes the subconscious and intuitive mind. His posture reflects his decisiveness and flexibility to deal with all matters headstrong. The white clouds indicate his desire to attain mastery of spiritual knowledge through his wisdom and intellect. The butterflies engraved on his throne and also one on his crown signifies transformation through subtle guidance. The bright sky indicates mental stability and the end of sweeping confusion.

The draw of the card suggests that you can conquer everything with your courage and intellect. You have attained authority, respect, and power in life because you stand firm on your decisions and speak with conviction. Your stature and tone make people listen to your ideas and believe in what you say.

Logical and intellect are your weapons to navigate through life. You have to be fair in your judgments because your association with law and enforcement drives people to come to you for advice. You may feel swayed with emotions, but you have to avoid distractions and temptations to uphold your impartiality like always.

Reversed King of Swords Meaning :

The reversed King of swords denotes quiet power. You are not loud to express your opinions. But you have come a long way to contribute your share to advocate equal rights for everyone. With authority comes responsibility. Do not let others steer your decisions because of your quietness. The card reflects your lack of decisiveness. You may be feeling lost and doubtful about your options in life. Especially when it comes to your love life, logically evaluate your decision. The person you are currently dating is a good partner for you to settle in a marriage contract or not.

Do not enforce your plans on others—research before reaching any conclusions. If you are thinking of delaying your decisions, avoid this because it will only add more to your confusion and worry.
