Tarot Card of the Week: King of Swords

King of Swords from Morgan Greer Tarot.

This week, I pulled from the Morgan-Greer Tarot.

The card I drew was the King of Swords. This card depicts a king, standing strong and proud with a sword and wheat stalks he is holding straight up in his hand. Oak branches with green leaves surround him. This king is in charge, mature, and in full command. In whatever field he chooses, he is the authority. With his sword in front of him, he appears ready to defend his beliefs. He is intelligent, perceptive, and strong willed. This King is intellectual. He analyzes problems using logic and can solve them with ease. He is just; when he makes a decision, he is not only honest and insightful, but also impartial. The King of Swords lives by high principles and ethical standards. The oak tree symbolizes his strength, and the wheat stalks symbolize that he will follow through until the ideas have harvested.

This week, look for the energies of the King of Swords. Is it within or around you? Is it time you embrace the strength, intellect, and logic of the King of Swords? You have proven to be successful and have followed through on your ideas, show this. Be honest and straightforward in your interactions. Be confident that you are an authority on the matter. If decisions need to be made this week, approach it like the King of Swords would using intellect, logic, and impartiality.
