King of Swords


King of Swords - Upright



  • Intelligence, authority, achievements, clear thinking power, truth





The King of Swords is a card of power and suggests that you currently have the strength, determination and wisdom to accomplish all of your goals. This card represents judgement and authority and suggests that you may need to control your emotions in order to keep a clear head and judge certain situations accordingly.  The King of Swords asks that you remain objective during situations that require your judgement and decision making in order to pick out facts over rumour and find the truth, and in order to make the correct decision for you and those around you. Use your knowledge of the situation to your advantage and let your intuition guide the way to what's right.

The King of Swords indicates that you have been too easy during a certain situation and warns that the only way you will get what you want is to become a bit sterner. In order to find truth, you must detach yourself from all emotions and simply judge the situation for what it is. Emotions can get into the way of your clear thinking and can often cloud your perception of a situation, making you see more or less than you should. Don't worry about not appearing sympathetic or caring during this situation, you need answers and this is the only way that you will get them.


King of Swords - Reversed



  • Anger, cruelty, manipulation, abuse, rudeness 





The King of Swords in a reversed position could suggest that there is someone in your life who is abusing their power of authority. This person is selfish and manipulative and is only interested in their own goals and needs. The reversed King of Swords asks that you be cautious around this type of person as they can be very deceiving and might be hiding their manipulative ways under a blanket of charm. This person may be nice at first but the only thing that they care about is their own personal interests and they will do absolutely anything in their power in order to get to where they need to be, even if this means knocking anyone down who gets in their way.

The King of Swords in reversed form suggests that you can be very indecisive in character and are unsure of your goals and confused about what direction your life is heading in. This indecision has caused you to feel uninspired and unmotivated about the future and what it holds. The reversed King of Swords asks that you take some time to reflect on your dreams and just go from there. Once you have a plan figured out, this card urges you to act on it as soon possible. Don't hold off on your success any longer than you already have.
