The Kings Cards in the Tarot

Languages ranging from Albanian to Zulu each have a proverb that says something like “Every man is a king.”

So what do we know about the King cards in the Tarot deck?

tarot | zoomtarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotKings represent male energy, masculine authority, and/or someone who wants to be in control. A King can also signify that the meanings of the cards in a reading are unambiguous and long-lasting.

Each King represents a different quailty, depending on his suit.  In a Tarot reading your reader will explain what he means specifically to you.

On a literal level, a King stands for a person, typically a man aged 35 or older. He likely has a strong and controlled — or controlling — personality. He’s not flighty or changeable. Instead, he’s a responsible person who wants to be the boss at his job and the provider for his family.

When a King card appears in a past position, he probably denotes your father or a father figure in your earlier life — perhaps an older brother, or a male mentor. If influenced by negative cards when in a past position, he might represent a domineering male influence from your younger days, such as a bullying male classmate or a tyrannical teacher or colleague.

If dealt in a present position, the King might represent an aspect of yourself, such as your drive to be in control, your ambitions, and your determination. He rarely represents violent upheaval or radical changes, but instead has to do with orderliness, stability, and gradual movement in a positive direction.

A King, of course, can refer to a love interest, especially a man over 35. If you’ve embarked on a new romance and a King shows up, it’s generally a good sign. Be careful, however — he can represent an ideal choice and stand in contrast to the man you’ve chosen. He might be telling you to find someone more like a King, someone stable, pleasant, successful, and in control of his life.

When a King card pops up in a future position, he probably forecasts security. He may herald the end of a state of chaos that has surrounded you. A stable future lies ahead and, if the card refers to a person, a true leader is about to enter your life. You might expect a satisfying and productive new job or hobby, or an incoming manager at work who’ll end a period of confusion. A King in a future position may also mean you’ll soon gain a clearer idea of your life’s direction.

Regardless of its position, any King nearly always bodes well. So relax, take comfort in his presence, and prepare for good times ahead!

Four Fascinating Facts about Tarot Cards

Number 3 Might Amaze You!

tarot | zoomtarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe philosopher Arthur Schopenhauer said, “Boredom is the reverse side of fascination.” If you’re bored due to the lockdown or anything else, here are four fascinating facts about Tarot cards.

1. Tarot Cards Weren’t Banned by the Medieval Church

It’s often claimed that the Tarot was specifically forbidden by the Medieval Catholic Church. During the Inquisition in Spain careful records were kept about what the Church did and did not label as heresy. Interestingly, the Tarot is never mentioned. The reason for this may have been financial. Printing was an important industry. Printers depended in part on printing cards for their livelihoods. The money they made contributed to local economies and supported tithes to the Church. So the Church, benefitting from the printing of cards, was reluctant to ban them.

2. The Hierophant and the High Priestess Cards Came Later

Because of the connection to gambling, playing cards were sometimes banned by communities, but there’s no evidence that was the case for Tarot cards. This probably had to do with their popularity among the wealthy nobility, who of course wielded power with both the Church and the State. However, after the Reformation the Church did object to cards depicting the Pope and Papess, two Major Arcana cards at the time. Therefore, card printers substituted the Hierophant — who still looks like a Pope in most Tarot decks — and his female counterpart, the High Priestess.

3 Tarot Cards Weren’t Designed for Fortune Telling

The original Tarot cards were meant for gaming. These games included “tarocchini” in Italy, “tarot” in France, and “königrufen” in German-speaking areas. Some of these original Tarot card games are still played today. For example, in 2001 “königrufen” was Austria’s third most popular card game. It uses a deck like a Tarot deck, with an extra face or court card and the Major Arcana. Tarot decks began to be used for fortune-telling on the continent by 1750. The cards were popular as divination aids later that century in France, when the Tarot of Marseilles was being printed.

4. No Card Is Truly “Bad”

Some cards — such as Death, the Devil, and several Swords cards — might look scary, but no card is inherently “bad.” For example, the Death card could mean the death of a habit such as smoking or overeating, which is certainly not a negative thing. It shows that something is ending to make way for something better ahead.  A Tarot reading points out the things you need to pay attention to in your life, and whether a card is negative depends on how the card is placed and what other cards accompany it.

The forceful Knight of Swords brings rapid change

One of the most dynamic cards of the entire Tarot, the Knight of Swords shows a rider charging across a landscape as the wind rages and storm clouds gather overhead.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotSwords Tarot cards have to do with forcefulness, courage, and change, as well as with the negative qualities of power-seeking, oppression, ambition, conflict, and even violence. Unlike many Swords cards, however, the Knight carries cheerful energy. The Knight of Swords also may point to your physical, emotional, and spiritual energy being at a peak.

This Knight may be telling you that someone or something desirable is coming your way. If reversed or poorly aspected, the card may mean you need more balance of your energy—becoming less forceful, for example.

A knight can stand for abstract qualities, or for a person. If it indicates qualities, it may mean reality, bluntness, plain talk. Perhaps there’s an overabundance of these coming from yourself or others in your current situation.

If it represents a person, he is likely to be an adult male under thirty with brown or light brown hair and blue, green, or hazel eyes. He is probably a Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius and he embodies the dynamic qualities of the card. If he’s not already in your life, rest assured that he is about to seek you out.

Overall, the Knight of Swords suggests that rapid changes are about to occur. These can be life-altering events, creative thoughts that race through your mind, or problems that are quickly solved.

Whatever might lie on your horizon, this card assures you that life will be stimulating and exciting, so brace yourself for a wild ride!

Interested in investigating the ex-wife? Queen of Wands does the trick.

Queens cards generally signify the creative force, the feminine, and that which nurtures. As such, a Queen signals upcoming growth or development, a time when things come to fruition and become real.

tarot | tarotbyemail | emailtarot | tarot readings | tarot reader | Tarot London | corporate tarot | business tarotThe Queen of Wands is a card of energy, happiness, and self-confidence. In the Rider Waite deck, this card shows an enthroned woman holding a sunflower with a black cat at her feet. Because of the cat, she almost appears to be a witch — but she’s a good witch, and one who is healthy, radiant, and physically fit.

As a court card, the Queen of Wands may represent the qualities the card symbolises, or it may stand for an actual person. If she’s a person, she is likely to be a woman, someone with reddish or light brown hair, blue or green eyes, rosy cheeks, and perhaps freckles. She may be athletic, enthusiastic, and self-assured but not arrogant. She’s also likely to befall under the star signs of Aries, Leo, or Sagittarius.

If the card instead stands for its qualities, it may mean you need to enhance your own fitness, self-confidence, independence, and leadership ability — for you have the potential for these things. If the card is reversed, you may need to be less arrogant and demanding, or to rein in your anxieties.

This Queen brings success in competitive endeavours, whether at work, in sports, or in social or romantic competitiveness. The appearance of this card is a good omen for a relationship, as long as you’re able to exude confidence and trust the universe to deliver love and supportiveness.

Quite interestingly for me, when I first read the Tarot for my partner, this card appeared as his ex-wife! Now, I haven’t met the woman, but I understand from other people that this description is quite a good reflection of her. (Personally, I think the reversed version may be more appropriate…)

If you’re interested, I can help you learn more about this and other powerful Tarot cards. We can even investigate your other half’s ex – in a very lighthearted way, of course…!
