King of Swords Love Tarot Card Description

Upright Meaning

Intelligent, ambitious, wise and rational, the person represented by this card has a lot going for them. They eschew displaying their emotions preferring rational discussion; at worst this individual can use their intellectual gift to bend others to their will. This person is devoid of romance but they can still be a perfect partner as they base their relationships on respect and ambition. On the plus side they are straightforward and are exactly as they appear. If you are single and interested in this person, you may struggle to work out if they fancy you or are just interested in having someone to debate with. The solution is simple ask them - you will get a straight unflustered answer (though not a romantic one). If there is no such person in your life then the King of Swords could refer to you, in which case the cards recommend that you try to let your emotional side out for an airing on occasion, your partner might appreciate this too.

Reversed Meaning

The reversed King of Swords represents a stubborn, opinionated, bombastic person who is prone to bullying others to get their way. If this person is the object of your affections; forget it, they are incapable of loving anyone but themselves.

In relationships the reversed King of Swords points to serious arguments and controlling behaviour. You can try using reason to calm things down, but be very careful you do not turn into a doormat. If your words fall on cloth ears you may have to walk away. Occasionally, this card can refer to an abusive relationship, don't waste your time or put yourself at risk by trying to discuss the situation; it won't work. Get away and stay away.
