Is the King of Swords in tarot is actually real? Can he help you? Was the king in the tarot card actually? Like decadeS ago?
Was the king in the tarot card actually real that lived here on earth?

Answer by The Booger Man
Oh, the King of Swords tarot CARD is certainly real, though it doesn’t actually represent anything.

Tarot cards, crystal balls and other means of forecasting the future (or divining someones personality or stupid relationship) are nothing more than mumbo jumbo, hocus pocus and “a-là-peanut butter sandwiches”.

Tarot cards and the other trappings of the “mystical arts” only signify what you want them to. In other words, they can be interpreted any number of different ways depending on the desires of the user.

They are nothing more than the sad tools of wishful thinking.

Answer by GrayPict
Yes the kings in the Tarot deck, represent the four of the most powerful rulers as well as the elements.
Cups (Hearts) Charlemagne and Water
Coins (Diamonds) Caesar and Earth
Clubs (Clubs) Alexander and Fire
Swords (Spades) David and Air
I am not sure what you mean “can he help you?”, Tarot is a method of prediction,
the cards represent many things and the symbols on the cards represent different
things depending on the deck being used. But, If you carry a king of swords, will the spirit of David be available to you – NO.

Source : Yahoo AnswersQuestion : What does the Knight of Swords mean in Tarot?

During the reading I asked about if/who/when I would get married. I got the Knight of Swords and a few other cards. The reader said that the person I would marry would possibly be an old lover of mine. From the Knight of Swords she got that he would be an authority figure, the two do not make much sense to me though. Are their any personality traits a man could have regarding the Knight of Swords?

Answer by Efd Jhmn

Jesus was a Capricorn by the way

Answer by Sagittarius Girl
The Knight will relate to a fixed sign and swords is either air or water, so I’d say either Leo or Aquarius. Your reading showed a man who was full of power and authority, so I’m assuming possibly a Leo.

Answer by Morbidius
I’ve heard two interpretations.

1. A ruthless man, a fighting spirit.

2. A smart, intellectual and ambitious young man. The card can represent that a man who means/brings trouble shows up.
That you meet a smart man, but he has a sharp tongue and can be tough to deal with. Or difficulties in starting a relationship due to gossip, enemies, bad people.

Answer by Miss 6
The Swords suit represents the Air signs, Libra, Aquarius, and Gemini.
The plain meaning to the Knight of Swords is assertive and courageous, using intellect above all else. Showing strong mental skills rather than physical force. Will encourage you to use your mind more.
Its strongly associated with a man between the ages of 25-40 who is most likely an air sign.

Answer by George
The Knight of Swords can be many things, which you’ll hear those who scoff at Tarot use as an attack on it’s validity. Remember those who have become gifted in Tarot use their intuition to tell you more than just what the card could represent. Some are better than others.

One thing it is certain of though is that you won’t be marrying an older man, he’ll be young (18-28+).
See this article for an explanation of age in tarot court cards of the minor arcana and the significance of 28 years in astrology and numerology:

Swords is the element of air, which means it is the intellectual element of the 4.
Explanation of the elements in Tarot can be found here:

I’ve found from personal experience that the element of the court card does not represent the astrological sun sign of the person it points to.
Rather it points to their vocation in life, career or personality.

Knight of Swords could be, for example, a policeman, lawyer, doctor, dentist, academic – even a hairdresser (someone that works with sharp tools!).

How to Read Tarot Cards : Finding Your Personal Deck of Tarot Cards

Written by Ashnadel

About Me:
I’ve always ‘seen’ things that people would say are psychic and paranormal – and as a child, I had predictive dreams of ‘things to come’. Being that age, I was growing and playing but being a kid, I never really questioned this too much. Not until I got to about fourteen, when for some reason, I became very aware of it all and began to question. It was then that I suddenly started to realize that not everyone was having these dreams. Or that no-one else had their own ‘Cosmic Teachers’ who would come along, dressed in white and teach me.

I am not as anyone here, you can try by yourself, I am an expert in a different way, holding in my hand the secret of your life, I am from Land of the Pharaohs, I am Egyptian, we going to see together what is going on with you in your life, let’s start our journey into your deep inner and search into your Past, Present, and your near Future, only, for your own highest good. I used many tarot cards, I know lots of spreads, I hold lots of secrets, I can contact with your inner angels, to bring you your best thing for yourself and for your life.

Since being here on Oranum I have already been able to give guidance and spread the healing seeds of positivism, which I am a great believer of. Happiness is achievable for all of us if we learn how to ask for it.

You are at the right pace if you need to talk to someone about your worries and dilemmas, if you are you having self-esteem issues, and feel low on energy.
