CREATING CHARACTERS THROUGH TAROT CARDS: KING OF SWORDS
By Karen Cino
KING OF SWORDS
The King represents a man over the age of 35. You can usually find him in high power jobs, such as a lawyer, government official, advisor or president of a company. He is a man of power, stern and not to be reckoned with.
There is no excitement with the King of Swords as he has all his emotions blocked, not letting them affect his judgment. Most people see him as arrogant and controlling, having no conscience.
Romantically, the King is blunt, sometimes to the point of indifference. You have to give him breathing room because no matter how much you try to get any sort of emotion out of him, he will put up the walls and block you out. He can be a loving partner, however, he is quick to cut off his emotions and use his independence as his reward of intimacy. Getting close to the King on an intimate level can be a struggle. If you can make it carefully through his barriers he can be a good partner.
The King of Swords is the perfect person to work out solutions quickly and cut to the chase in chaotic situations and provides the solution needed to move forward. Most of the time, he is truthful and can be relied on to handle situations fairly and honorably.
Moral/ethical leader, lives by the highest principles, works against dishonesty, impartial, applies reason and logic, rational, wise, authoritative, good communicator and practical.
Bullying, scheming. Impersonal, calculating, vengeful, can be violent and cruel, emotional issues, uncaring and extremely over emotional in an out of control way. ♥
