Today’s card is the King of Swords from the Goddess Tarot. We see an Egyptian pharaoh sitting upon a concrete bench. His posture is showing his self confidence, his integrity and authority. He is the personification of God on Earth. So he better be right when he decides or speaks. He uses his intellect as a sword to cut away needless discussions to get to the bottom of things and to provide clarity for his subjects. He will not be ignored and is a force to be reckoned with.
This king isn’t painted with blues and grey’s as usual to emphasize his airy aspects. but instead with the warm colors of Egypt. His face is gentle and kind, instead of strict and severe. This king will also teach me one or two things on how to settle an argument.He reminds me of my father who was a King of Swords at heart but also such a loving dad. He has taught me the importance of seeking knowledge, of reading and checking facts before you make a decision. And he would always come to my aid if I needed advice.
Today I will try to be more like my dad; to listen carefully and with patience before I speak my mind.
“There are two things over which you have complete dominion, authority and control: your mind and your mouth” African Proverb
