The Llewellyn Encyclopedia

Term: king


King: In the standard Tarot deck, the Kings are one of the four “Court” cards found in each suit of the Minor Arcana. In a reading it indicates a swift but possibly unenduring force of the suit that is associated with the meaning of the suit. Thus, the King of Wands, related to the element of Fire, indicates a decisive and passionate approach while the King of Cups, associated with the element of Water, is associated with the fine arts or legal profession. It may or may not be related to a person.Donald Michael Kraig, Certified Tarot Grandmaster
