The King Of Swords sits on his throne very well aware of what is going on around him, but remains logically detached. This is my least favorite of the Kings, although he does have his strong points.
Swords represent the element of air, which are mental. This card is also ruled by the planet Saturn, furthering the serious tone of this King. Saturn is the planet of responsibility and the King of Swords is certainly responsible and level headed. King Of Swords rules the signs of Gemini, Libra , Aquarius. This King rules with his head & not his heart. It does not mean he does not have any emotion, but it often appears that he does not ! He comes to swift conclusions based on facts, and he will always do what he feels is the right thing for him to do logically. This is an extremely intelligent man, although it could represent a woman depending upon the rest of the reading.
For the upcoming week, the King Of Swords is suggesting that we take a very stern, but fair role. You have clarity and can see the truth right now, so it’s time to take the lead and provide an objective point of view. You are in a position to judge the situation appropriately while identifying the limiting behaviors of both ourselves, and of others, that are getting in the way. This is a time when you will need to leave your emotions out of it and remain objective & rational. You may need to reason with others and be quite direct about what you are observing. You may be concerned that you are not being particularly caring or sympathetic but at this point in time, this detachment is what is needed most. ( If you are not normally a “King of Swords” type person, this will be extremely difficult!)
Similarly, the King of Swords encourages you to use your logic and intellect to navigate your path ahead. You will need to get to the heart of the matter, make firm and well-researched decisions, and ensure that you are firm but fair in your dealings with others. You need to be able to take any situation, look at it with total objectivity, and then come to a decision that is both fair and insightful.
So this is the energy for the upcoming week. Look at the situation, acknowledge and appreciate the facts from all angles, and come to a fair resolution. Do not be attached to your emotion in regards to this situation, ,rather, remain objective and do what is right. The King of Swords encourages us for the week ahead, and has your back!
Love & Light,
