What can you tell me about the King of Swords Tarot card?

I read interpretations on the internet, but sometimes other people’s insights have something more valuable to offer whether that be from personal experience with a King-of-Swords type guy, or because of different interpretations THEY’VE learned.
So how about it?


  1. The first thing I think of when I see the King of Swords is a sharp tongue, someone who is rather biting in criticism. I can also see him as an individual who is intelligent and often very much in his head. If you want to associate this card with a zodiac sign, consider it as you would an Air sign man, someone who’s more intellectual than emotional. I often pull this as a “person” card for a Libra.

  2. King of Swords – Intellectual, logical, driven, calculating, sharp wit. Not a guy who’s given to letting his emotions rule him. Definitely a head over heart type of guy. Often associated with air signs (Libra, Aquarius, Gemini). Also often associated with people who are olive-skinned with light eyes and dark hair.
    I used to date a King of Swords type. He was a physicist and he was intensely logical, ambitious, and in day to day life he put very little value in emotions and feelings. He was only ever emotional in his private life. Coincidentally he also had brown hair and light green eyes. He was a Cancer, but he had a Libra rising and he came up as a King or Knight of Swords in all of my readings.

  3. To me, I feel like that this is the type of male that depends primarily on his rationalizing, analytical abilities. Decisions are not based so much on feelings and emotions, but rather on fairness and logical deductions. This is the type of man who could be working in some branch of military or governmental intelligence unit or simply someone who holds much authority and commands respects in an organization. Wise and just by nature, he is often seen as the arbitrator in an argument or dispute and has the ability to maintain peace at any cost to the parties involved.
    However, on the flip side, too much logic and rationalization often leads to suppressed feelings and the possibility of making cold, calculated decisions. This type of male might seem cruel and perverse at times to the more feeling type of individual. I see this as a blend of both Fire (King) and Air (Swords) and the driving force is to maintain a sense of harmony and control about any given situation.
