Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - King Of Swords Reversed

King Of Swords Reversed
Introduction: The King of Swords reversed usually represents a powerful, opinionated, forceful man in your life. He will often, but not always, have hair on the darker end of the spectrum. He is not particularly open to new ways of doing things. It will be difficult to get him to be open to any sort of change.

General: In general, the King of Swords reversed points to very forceful energy, whether or not he represents a literal man in your life. You will need to accept that you can't always change anyone's mind; sometimes the best you can hope for is compromise. And being forceful or like a bully yourself is not going to change anything; in fact it is likely to have the opposite effect.

Work: With the reversed King of Swords, a man in your work environment may be holding back from saying things that it would be helpful for him to be saying. Keep your ear to the ground and listen carefully. If you are looking for work, as with the upright meaning, a man, likely to be dark haired and the stereotypical "man's man" may be in a position to hire you, but you will have to impress him on every level to get the job. Stress your understanding of tradition and the importance of following the rules.

Love: In relation to love, the reversed King of Swords can mean that a strong, forceful, opinionated man may be part of the scenario. He could be stubborn to a fault. As with the upright meaning of this card, if his man is your beloved, it means that you are going to have to accept him as he is, and whether you are male or female, you'll best deal with him by drawing on the feminine aspects of your nature. Don't put up with being mistreated, however. This man can walk the line between being stereotypically manly, and overstepping his bounds. Protect yourself, and also do not accept dishonesty from him, "man's man," or not.


Finances: When it comes to finance, the reversed King tells you that it is important that you are meticulous now regarding your finances. You could easily find mistakes which have been made - and some or all of it could be in your favor. If you can't face slogging through "your books" on your own, ask for or hire help. You may be very pleasantly surprised about what you find out.

Health: It's possible that your medical practitioner is not open to hearing what you have to say and may doubt your interpretation of events and symptoms, with the reversed King of Swords in the reading. It may help to keep records. Overall, though, it is your responsibility to advocate for yourself and if your current medical doctor is not open to hearing your concerns; you may need to switch to one who will.

Spirituality: You may need to think critically and logically about some spiritual information coming your way now. It's possible that a spiritual leader of some kind is twisting something for the benefit of his organization (yes, he is likely to be male - or a woman with very masculine energy.) Again, trust your instincts and your intuition. If something doesn't resonate with you, then it doesn't resonate; it doesn't matter who says it or why. You don't have to accept everything even a trusted advisor offers.
