Exploring Tarot Cards: King of Swords

Let me tell you one of the stories of Chanakya, the renowned teacher, strategist and political advisor to Chandragupta Maurya ( A powerful king in Indian History). Chanakya’s teachings are famously known as “Chanakya Niti” and are relevant even today in dealing with challenges of life.

Once an acquaintance met Chanakya excitedly and said “Chanakya, I have something to tell you about your friend.

Before the acquaintance could continue , Chanakya asked him three questions.

1) Are you sure that what you are going to tell me is the truth? The acquaintance said no, I overheard it from someone else.
2) Is this news telling me something positive about my friend? The acquaintance said no.
3) is this information of use to me? The acquaintance again said no.

Thus, Chanakya said that if the information is not true, not positive and of no use to me then I don’t want to hear it.

The story ends here.

The King of Swords represents a person with personality traits of Chanakya- being articulate, clear and using his/her judgement to avoid petty politics.
