Your Life Reading

Relationships

Say what you mean, and mean what you say. Your friends and partners need straightforward feedback; give it to them. Avoid trying to control what someone says or how he or she says it. When an argument's over, let it be over. Do what you said you would do.

Work

Don't waffle. Make commitments and stick to them. If you say you'll meet a deadline, do so. If called on to evaluate the work of others, don't sugar-coat the results; render a fair verdict. Strive to be known for your honesty; avoid brown-nosing and voicing empty praise.

Spirituality

Listen for the still, small voice, and, when you've heard it, act on its advice with total confidence. Don't hesitate to confirm your verdict with a wise counselor whose opinions you respect. Be sure to let your spirituality temper your conversation, and match your words with deeds.

Personal Growth

Strive to be consistent. Let your word be your bond. One measure of maturity is the ratio of words spoken vs. words listened to. Grow (and gain respect) by learning to hear what others are saying. Reserve judgment until after all the evidence has been heard.

Symbols and Insights

To emphasize the airiness of this suit, the throne of the King of Swords may be decorated with flying creatures - or, in some decks, may hover in space. Air's qualities include logic and communication. How might these qualities be deployed to improve your situation?

The gravity and wisdom of this King are unmistakableÑhe is an incarnation of Solomon, who ruthlessly applied logic in order to render wise decisions. In your own situation, should you rely more on logic or wisdom? What might happen if you blended the two?

How comfortable are you with the fact that not everyone may support or applaud your decisions? How willing are you to make decisions that alienate some people?

The Marseilles King of Swords is composed and alert, maintaining a posture of readiness. He can be seen as a reminder that paying attention is half of solving any problem. Watch the actions of those around you. Weigh their statements carefully. Review records. With a holistic picture in hand, you'll make a better decision.
