Alternate Names: None

 

Keywords / Additional Meanings:

Generally favourable may signify a good marriage. Reversed: Advice that should be followed.

 

Description:

The physical and emotional nature to which this card is attributed is dark, ardent, lithe, animated, impassioned, noble. The King uplifts a flowering wand, and wears, like his three correspondences in the remaining suits, what is called a cap of maintenance beneath his crown. He connects with the symbol of the lion, which is emblazoned on the back of his throne.

Divinatory Meaning:

Dark man, friendly, countryman, generally married, honest and conscientious. The card always signifies honesty, and may mean news concerning an unexpected heritage to fall in before very long.

Reversed Meaning:

Good, but severe; austere, yet tolerant.
