Tarot Goddess

Title: The Lord of the Wide and Fertile Land; The King of the Spirits of Earth
Element: Fire of Earth
Zodiac Sign: 20º Leo to 20º Virgo; August 12 – September 11
Myers-Briggs: ESTJ – The Guardian
Thumbnail Meaning: Maturity, dependability, authority, tenacity, sternness.

As “The King of the Spirits of the Earth,” this card rules over all that the earth gives us: food, and shelter, and the raw material for all our technology and civilization. The bounty of the harvest shows up again and again in depictions of him.

This King can also represent great wealth and prosperity. He is conservative, reliable and unlikely to be carried away by emotion. Within these limits, he can be very generous, especially with those he trusts.

He is not a man given to lofty thoughts or feelings. Like Calvin Coolidge, he believes that “press on” can and will solve all problems of the human race. He may sound like a bit of a sourpuss, but he is not; he quite enjoys life and his wealth.

Others may get frustrated when he doesn’t follow every trend or cause, but he’d rather be true to himself than to fashion.

This card can refer to:

A philanthropist
A manager
A financial advisor
A patient and dedicated leader
A successful entrepreneur

It may also mean:

A tremendous work ethic leading to great payoff
A materialistic focus
The wisdom of success
Waiting without strain for one’s efforts to bear fruit
A harvest

In some contexts, this card can refer to greed. Cards like The Devil and the Seven of Swords bring out this King’s natural cunning, amplify it and turn it on itself. No longer does he succeed for enjoyment, but out of a lustful craving for more and more and more.

The King should represent a mature man – perhaps late thirties to late fifties. You may wish to include an elderly man in the possibilities, but probably the reversed card would be better for representing older age. In terms of Coins he might be a businessman, a senior manager, director, vice president. Any mature office manager. The king might also represent the completion of something, though perhaps not necessarily a completely successful one. The surrounding cards should help to determine the meaning of the card.

For the reversed card, the age group should stay the same. Other than that it’s a straightforward reversal. It might be considered as an unsuccessful conclusion to something.
