King of swords in a general reading:

As with all the swords court cards King of swords is a very work, career and duty oriented card. Life is only truly satisfying when you can use your expertise in the professional world. When you are learning you simply add onto the mountain of knowledge within you. This is how you reach for the stars. You ask a lot of people and you might have to lower your expectations a little so that you don’t end up being frequently disappointed in others. It can be hard for you to make friends as the mundane of everyday life doesn’t really interest you. People can quickly become boring to be around unless they are unique in some way. Then they might be able to keep you interested for a while. As all the other kings in the tarot deck, King of swords tends to put people on pedestals they later fall off of. They usually plunge down after you find out that they are mere humans full of mistakes and faults. When this happens you withdraw into the world you love, which is the intellectual world. This is where you feel safe. Having said that, you do love deeply, it is just hard to express it clearly which creates misunderstandings. There can be issues with loneliness.

Someone will come into your life that has the knowledge you are seeking. This is someone who is an expert in a field that will benefit you. The more you spend time with this person the more you will transform into what you need to be at this time. You are learning a lot about yourself in the process.

King of swords as the final card tells you that what you want is within your reach, all you have to do is to find the information to make it possible. This information is available to you. Once you have this information it changes everything for the better in your situation.

King of swords in career questions:

King of swords is an intellectual authority figure who often symbolises chefs, lawyers, judges, doctors, surgeons, and pilots. King of swords is an indicator that you are on the right path in your career. You need to feel stimulated at work and you need to be able to identify yourself with what you do. King of swords is here to tell you that your preparations will pay off in a big way.

King of swords in a love question:

In love King of swords denotes someone very serious about love, and they play by the rules. They have a lot to offer you and they ask for a big return. They need to know that you will be there, even if they will be absent for much of the relationship. King of swords can denote a long distance relationship where you will be communicating through emails, phone, and Skype, and fly/drive long distances to see each other.

King of swords reversed:

King of Swords reversed indicates someone who will manipulate facts to get their own ways. There is a block when it comes to integrity and objectivity. This is someone opinionated and biased. New ideas get mocked and censored. This card sometimes shows up reversed when the seeker is holding back truths they should be sharing. There is an ignorance to this card when it shows up reversed, and the person might even be tyrannical and abusive, especially verbally. King of swords often shows up reversed when someone’s reputation is being ruined, or worse, someone has an excellent public reputation but is cruel behind closed doors.

    king of swords and high priestess shows a long distance relationship?

  2. Inger Bråthen August 30, 2015 at 10:08 am

    The high priestess in relationship readings describe having a strong emotional connection. So whether you live close by or far apart you can still feel and psychically communicate with the other person…

    Hi! What is the meaning of King of swords reversed as the last card – destiny of the relationship, at the soul mate spread?

    King of swords reversed often means you will learn something new, something that might be a challenge to start with. It often involves another culture and/or language.

    OMG! I got the King of Swords as a man’s feelings for me and yes, it is a long distance relationship and your description in love fits him to the tee! Thank God we are both have our own businesses and are emotionally intelligent and independent. For me, I took his feelings as the King of Swords to be serious about me and not let fear-based emotions get in the way of love. What do you think? I would be interested to hear your thoughts.

    I have a long distance relationship with a man, and that was the final card of my reading, can you tell me something about this?

  7. Inger Bråthen November 15, 2017 at 7:17 am

    Hi, Adriana. It depends a bit on the other cards, but it can mean you will make decisions about your relationship, maybe one of you can move etc.
