King of Swords

King of Swords

Today you may find yourself dealing with an individual — or a situation — that has you feeling like you have no say in your current circumstances.

The King of Swords is typically very stern, abrupt and no-nonsense, with a marked “my way or the highway” attitude. He may be a parent, a supervisor, a judge or some other authority figure who appears unwilling to hear you out or to make any concessions.

He’s decisive and direct. He (or She) can also be abrupt, unyielding and intimidating, but only because you’ve given this person so much power over you that it causes you to feel inferior.

The figure in this version of the card appears as a childlike Hermes, complete with golden sandals and winged helmet. He has a small horn strapped to his tunic. And even the octopus-like contraption he’s standing on appears to have wings. In this respect he’s a messenger, so you’ll want to listen to what he has to say, even if you don’t appreciate the way he says it.

The Sun and Uranus are in sextile today. The sextile can act as a conduit for compromise by bringing ingenuity (Uranus) to the table as means of tempering Ego (the Sun). 

What I loved about this version of the card is that it reduces the stern old no-nonsense King from traditional versions into an innocuous little boy. He’s still wielding a mighty sword. And he’s still got that searing vision that looks off into the distance with clarity and precision.

But it couldn’t hurt to picture the person who has you shaking in your shoes as no more powerful or important than you are.

As with all the court cards, the King of Swords may not refer to an individual but an attitude. A state of mind that is necessary for you to adopt. If this is the case for you today, remember to temper your direction with diplomacy, rather than being too forceful, stern or harsh.
