King of Swords Tarot Card Meaning

King of Swords

The King of Swords represents a mastery of cold, hard logic. This isn’t the most sexy and mysterious and engaging type of thinking, but sometimes it is absolutely necessary.

The invitation with the King of Swords is to bring logic into whatever situation you are grappling with. Have you bit off more than you can chew?Are you engaging in wishful thinking? Have you gathered all the facts, or are you operating on assumptions and biases?

Usually the King of Swords is a very useful and necessary part of our life, but sometimes it goes too far. You may be getting this card because you are using reason and hyper-rationality to avoid your deeper feelings and desires that you are uncomfortable with. Look at all the cards and do an honest assessment to see which is true in your case.
