Logic is the King of Swords love Tarot meaning. He is overly intelligent and uses his brains to get one over on his enemies. Known for being quick-witted and sharp, he can hold a position of considerable responsibility (although not necessarily). The King of Swords is someone who has experience in arguments and debates.
In some Tarot card decks, the King of Swords is called the Father of Swords. However, the Tarot card meaning of the Father of Swords and the King of Swords is the same.
Court cards can appear as you or another individual in your life, and the King of Swords is no acceptation. If he appears in an outcome position, it can mean that you will meet a King of Swords character in the future who will help or hinder the situation.
If the King of Swords represents another person, it can be a warning that you are harshly judged and assessed by a King of Swords type of character. This man is watching what you are doing with great interest. The King may be a person of official authority, like a teacher or professor, but he can also be a lover, father, or close family member.
The King has a tendency for being highly manipulative. He knows how people work, what makes them tick, and how he can bring them over onto his side. You may or may not be fooled by the King, but that doesn’t mean that other people aren’t.
However, the King has his good traits. Sometimes this Tarot card can mean that you have to separate yourself from your feelings. You must use your mind, not your heart, to navigate the situation and turn it to your advantage.
King of Swords Love Tarot Meaning
In a love reading, the King of Swords can represent your partner. While I would not say that it is desirable to have this King as your lover, some people are attracted to his personality.
In the feelings department, The King is cold and detached. His love life is not his priority. At times, he can appear inconsiderate and aloof. He is the type of man who cares more about other things (social standing, career) than he does his romantic relationships. Even if The King of Swords likes the thought of having a family, he cannot give the emotional energy it takes to sustain a happy one.
However, for whatever reasons, some people like having a partner who is emotionally detached and reserved. If this is you, then you’ll be well suited to the King of Swords. If not, then he is not your guy.

King of Swords Feelings Tarot Meaning
Your lover is not the type of person who deals with feelings. They see this relationship from a purely logical standpoint. I do not take the King of Swords to be positive when it appears as a feeling or intention because, for me, it highlights the fact that your partner is not feeling with their heart, but thinking with their head.

If the King of Swords appears in the outcome position of a love or relationship Tarot reading, it can mean that you will discover your partner has many of the same traits as this King. In the future, you will learn that your partner is cold, aloof, and detached but also intelligent and logical.
