King of Swords - Minor Arcana Tarot Card

September 17, 2017


Below is an excerpt from the Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:


The King of Swords


The primary principle in this card is mental strength.  Skilled sword smiths forge their blades with a mastery that requires years of diligent practice.  Your mind, too, requires a lifetime of stimulation and expansion to ensure its precise lucidity.  The King of Swords card indicates an astute mental mastery, therefore a sharp sense of self.  This card facing left or inverted suggests a disruption in cerebral clarity.  Turn a fiery focus toward your mind’s overwhelming power.  Take your intellect seriously.


Suggested prompts:


upright: mental sharpness; encompassing awareness; knowledge

right: study; practice; development

left: in need of discipline; laziness        

reversed: interruption; unsound thought; ambiguity
