This card is from the Rider-Waite deck, originally published in 1910.

This King is the calm, steady type, always reliable and in control of himself. He’s adept at building and growing things - a garden, a house, an empire. He has a talent for finance and is a philanthropist who uses his wealth to benefit the community. He doesn’t take a lot of risks - he sticks with the long-term, safe investment. His focus is on the future and creating a good, comfortable life for his kingdom. This card suggests that his energy is important to you right now. Perhaps you’re faced with making a crucial financial decision, or you’re feeling ungrounded, without a clear sense of where “home” is and what to do next. If so, consider meditating on this card and asking what this King would do in your situation. Remember there’s no hurry. Great things take time to grow. And working for the benefit of others as well as yourself is always a good investment.
