|Dr.Nikki's Tarot -
|The King in the Tarot deck is the supreme ruler
(at least within the minor arcana). He is
confidence personified. Having been tested by
the travails of life he sits his throne in confidence
and security. The Kings, when related to the
Pages, can be representative of the culmination
of the matter. An ending to a period of growth
and a time of achievement coming, soon to be at
hand the Kings are strong messengers.
The Kings are normally more outgoing and
extroverted than their counterpart, The Queen.
Where the Queen looks within to know, the Kings
look without to see. The Kings are always
represented as commanding male figures.
Having earned their Kingdom through their own
personal enterprise, they are strong in
themselves and able to consolidate their holdings
to incorporate them into a new whole.
The Kings, as an ending figure, can represent
|either the coming or going of a matter. Pay particular
attention to the direction the King is facing. The
aspect of his suit may be lending an influence on the
direction to which he is looking. The ultimate of
masculine energy the King has taken the brashness of
the Knight and molded it into a positive controlled
force always within his control.
On a physical plane, the Kings represent males in the
full bloom of early maturity, normally in their 30s or
40s. When one of The Kings appears in the spread it
should be studied for indications of physical
|characteristics of a new man coming into the picture. This man need not be a
romantic affiliation…he may be the guise of a father-figure or a friend.
