How do you feel about your ability to communicate?
My post today is about the King of Clubs. This card is about mastering our ability (and responsibility) to stand up, take a leadership position and communicate (either through writing, speaking or any other communication field) important knowledge & truth.
I had a dream the night before I drew this card. I looked out my window and saw a huge full moon. Then I saw a large white goose flying into the moon. Then it turned and I noticed that it wasn’t one goose, but five – they were all connected and they started flying at me. I thought they would fly right in my window, but right before they reached me they flew up.
In looking up the meaning of the goose, I realized how similar it is to the meaning of the King of Clubs card.
Geese and their patterns in migration reminds us that as any one of us makes our “quest” (our search of truth) it becomes easier for others.
Geese have powerful voices and great physical strength to endure the migrations. They are quiet as goslings, then break free to come into their own. In mythology, Mother Goose’s fairy tales and stories stirred our imaginations. It is within these childhood stories that we can be imprinted in how we perceive life. The stories and myths of our culture, as well as the types of stories we were drawn to as kids had a role to play in what we end up doing in life.
Our imaginations take us places through oral and written stories, letting us explore other physical locales, other realms and other ways of BEing.
The role of the King of Clubs is to be an authority in the area of their ‘truth.’ They seem to have a direct connection to knowledge and they don’t live by someone else’s philosophy – they live by theirs.
There are many ways a King of Clubs can pass on their knowledge – it isn’t always by being a teacher or writer. Their instrument for sharing comes in many forms, but one thing is for sure – they have a huge responsibility to share and to share in integrity.
One of the resources of a King of Clubs is their precise mental distinction.
Nothing can be out of place or off within their minds and what they are doing, or they will feel off, out of sorts or unstable.
Think about being someone whose very core is this quest for the truth – what transformations they must undergo! Because you can’t be constantly seeking and not run into knowledge that cuts you to the core.
Do they grasp and change due to everything they discover? No…and that is when and where they get in trouble, because they instinctively know they must, but they don’t always make the transformation.
Back to my dream of the geese – there were five of them. Five is the number of change. We must get out of our ruts, out of our mental prisons. Like a person with OCD who is trapped because something is not 100% as it should be, a state of constant exactness can hurt us.
The geese were flying into the Full moon. The full moon is the time when our intentions have either been fulfilled, or we realize it wasn’t what we really wanted and we must let go. It can be the struggle between the head and the heart – between intuition and our rational mind.
On the Solar Spread (what I call The Map), The King of Clubs sits at Uranus and Uranus. This is the ultimate spot of the development of individuality, transcending cultural and societal programming; living outside of the status quo and sometimes our comfort zone. Ignorance is not bliss for the King of Clubs. Our search for the truth must lead us to living as our authentic selves.
The Master of Knowledge (the King of Clubs) represents that place where we are living from the Mind (not the brain or our intellect) but from that place where we are connected to a higher perspective, sharing through compassion and leading with integrity and responsibility. Much success is gained when we come from this place.
Do you have the King of Clubs in your Birth or Ruling card spread?
If so, where? Wherever he is, he brings the desire to know; to master that knowledge and to pass it along as a responsible leader and to be an authority in that area.
For example, my dear 2 of Clubs friend has the King of Clubs as her Mercury card (all 2 of Clubs people do) – thus her mental life is all about mastering her knowledge in the field she loves. She is working on her PhD right now and I’m betting she’ll never really be done with school and learning.
Do you have the King of Clubs in your forecast this year?
He will act as a gift – bringing you the energy of being able to communicate and lead within your area of expertise.
What Planetary period is he in?
If you draw this card when using the cards as divination tool, ask yourself these questions:
- What is my confidence level with my communication abilities?
- What advice do I continue to receive, yet refuse to follow?
- What is it costing me and others by refusing to communicate effectively?
- What confining habits or ways of thinking are blocking my communications?
- Where can I apply my current knowledge to become a better communicator?
- What has to happen to make the information I want to communicate more understandable?
- Am I willing to take a leadership position in my area of expertise?
