The King of Swords card portrays the King to be sitting on his throne. He wears a blue tunic and a purple cape. Blue symbolizes spiritual learning and purple is representative of compassion coupled with intellect.
He holds a large double edged sword in his right hand that is pointed upwards. His left hand is placed gently on his lap.
The middle finger of his left hand (also known as the Saturn finger in divination terminology) is adorned with a ring. His hold posture exudes power and the fact that he is serious about his responsibilities. The background consists of azure sky with very few clouds – meaning that the vision and mind of the King has clarity.
The upright trees in the background represent the King’s stern judgment and also reinstate the fact that the King implements justice in a firm manner. The high backed throne is adorned with butterflies that symbolize transformation and crescent moon that symbolize spiritualism. There is an angel carved on his throne near his left ear — positioned just right to guide the King subtly. This card is all about authority, patriarchy and competence.

Reversed Position: Reversed, the card represents an unsympathetic person who is insensitive towards others. It may also indicate vindictive nature or harsh punishment.
