King of Swords Tarot Card Meanings
The King of Swords type is usually something of a dark horse, they can come across as slightly aloof or detached because they don’t tend to give much away unnecessarily. When they do have something to say they tend to get to the point and not beat around the bush. If asked for an opinion you’ll find it logical and well considered, they’re good with facts and figures and process information quickly, so they have the ability to think on their feet.
Swords can be steely so they have strength of character and a tendency to stand up for what they feel is right. As a partner he is strong and loyal and takes responsibilities seriously. In terms of astrological sun signs, Swords could be taken to represent those of the air element. On the downside, they can seem impersonal or insular with a sharp tongue at times.
Tarot Card Combinations: Some readers like to use the Kings and Queens to represent a facet of your personality. As I work predictively, I prefer to use them to represent a mature man or woman in the reading based on their characteristics. You can usually identify the person depicted by the card based on the dominant personality traits allocated to each suit; they each have their strengths and weaknesses, so one is not more favourable than another. Cards surrounding them will show how they influence events.
