The hilt of the sword is decorated with a giant, open eye, which the King has held up right in front of the Third Eye chakra. He holds the sword in the left hand rather than the right, perhaps implying that the sword is linked more to the heart and the intuition than the King realises. The Sword suit, after all, is the suit of logic, reason, thinking, planning, strategy, and so on. Not feeling or intuition. But actually, there is a lot of emotion in all of the Sword suit. So maybe the Sword cards are somewhat in denial of their true nature.
What is the nature of the Dreamer King? 'He is known throughout the land for dealing justice with the king's fair hand,' according to the companion book to the deck. (Each minor and court card in the book gets a 4-line verse by way of explanation. That's it, along with a few key words). His title is Gift of Judgement. To me, Aragorn of Lord of the Rings is an excellent example of a King of Swords. So is Atticus Finch from To Kill a Mockingbird.
That eye on the sword probably represents the clarity of the Dreamer King's vision, meaning his ability to see through to the truth of the situation, and mete out justice accordingly. In this way, the card is reminiscent of the Justice card from the Cosmic Tarot, where Lady Justice's laser eyes penetrate to the truth and then also burn away the dross at the same time. I am sure that the Dreamer King's sword is lightning fast to cut off that which needs cutting off, swiftly and surely.
Message for the day: What needs to be cut off in your life today? What needs to be examined with clarity and then dealt swift but fair justice, without hesitation or further deliberation?
(The answer for me probably has something to do with the junk food always found in abundance on the staffroom community table!)
