Embrace Your King of Swords

Today’s card is the King of Swords from the Shadowscapes Tarot by Stephanie Pui-Man Law.

Many of the women I work with are afraid to embrace their more masculine sides. They see this power as pushy, bossy, and even downright scary! Unfortunately, not wanting to embrace all of your sides can lead to imbalance, frustration, and even depression.

Today this King of Swords invites you to embrace some of the aspects of your masculine energy. He is calm, centered, and focused. He has friends around him who fly ahead and look out for him, and who are loyal and kind. He is a wise leader who has grown sure of himself over time.

Where can you use this energy in your life? Perhaps you need to dig deep and discover who you truly are. Maybe you need to say no to that next bake sale or driving 10 kids to soccer practice so you can sleep in this weekend. Or maybe you just need to look in the mirror and say, “I’m okay, and my life is pretty darn good!”

Embrace the King of Swords today. What can this energy do in your life?

    The next time you do a reading for yourself, pull out a second deck and draw the same cards. Lay the two beside each other. What do the meanings for each tell you? Do they interact and work together? Are there conflicts between the illustrations? Note how each card makes you feel and how you feel when you see them together. Reading from more than one deck at a time can help you increase your knowledge of Tarot and help you see many possible sides and interpretations. It can be tremendously helpful when you draw a card and you have no idea how to interpret it or what the deck may be trying to tell you.
