Weekly Tarot Card – King of Swords

He sits on a throne of stone adorned with butterfly and crescent moon carvings. They appear to be in contrast to his stern glaze and the double edged sword he holds upright in his right hand of action. Or, are they? This is a king who rules with his mind. He sees clearly and is decisive based on reasoned fairness. He does not allow his emotions to cloud his judgment, although by the look of his tilted sword and his robes of blue he acknowledges that mercy and compassion are necessary to temper the severity of the intellect in action. He sits on a verdant precipice–he is not afraid of what lies ahead for his way will nurture and give protection to new beginnings and the evolution of goodness.

Weekly Tarot Card – King of Cups

IMG_0782 2A king wearing flowing robes sits upon an upholstered throne with luxurious rounded edges. The curves of the throne correspond to the flowing emotions of this ruler’s heart. He holds a scepter (power) in one hand and a golden cup (emotions) in the other. His throne is perfectly balanced on the wavy sea where ships and fish appear in the distance. ┬áThis week an older man of authority (boss, father, teacher) will show you the value of ruling with the information gained from the heart. Or perhaps you will bring this emotional intelligence into your own way of handling your affairs. The egg harkens to the mystery of new beginnings and the frog reminds us how to live in and out of the water so we never become completely submerged.
