The Meaning of
the "King of Swords" Tarot Card

Fairness
A person of authority who is evenly judgemental. A decision without prejudice. The King of Swords is not swayed by petty disputes or favoritism. A just leader.

[ inverted meaning ]
Favoritism and nepotism are at work. Someone has the inside track. What appears an even race is far from it.

Advanced tarot interpretation

(Applies to the upright position) The Symbolism of the Tarot Card:

The king sits on his lofty throne on the top of a high cliff. He has a sullen, but not threatening, look on his face, as if in deep contemplation. Elements of air surround him, including clouds and a butterfly that adorns his throne. He holds his sword aloft in his hand with a sure grip, even though it looks like a very heavy sword. He reflects the archetypal figure of Justice in the Major Arcana of the same, but he is more of a "real world" figure that dispenses Justice.

The Meaning of the Tarot Card:

A high ranking scholar such as a university professor or an experienced scientist. One who has sacrificed other areas of their lives for the life of the mind. May also be a person involved in a superior position in law enforcement or a law firm. Power, authority, and the judicious use of these in all things. An exceedingly fair, but firm person.
