Wildwood COTD : King of Arrows

Today is Thursday and the King of Arrows comes out to play. His RWS counterpart is the King of Swords and boy, that for my just means trouble today! He’s about directness, saying your thoughts, standing up for yourself, not caring about the consequences.

Card of the Day
King of Arrows – Kingfisher

He’s a dangerous part of anyone’s psyche, including my own. He’s not one I like to mess around with a lot and if I can, I keep him well under wraps. For me, I can say exactly what is on my mind and hurt people. I’m Pisces, I don’t like being all direct, arrogant, rude, spiteful… I don’t often see the positive side of the King of Swords, but in this interpretation I do see some positives.

For one, this King is graceful. There’s beauty in his directness that I very rarely attribute to the King of Swords. He does what he does (fish rather well) in order to survive, he doesn’t do anything that is unnecessary or unkind or malicious.

So, there’s a few good things about this King that I had not seen before, but I still find him somewhat intimidating.

So, there are a few things to look out for today. One is to say what needs to be said, but not a vindictive way. The other is perhaps, to be nice about it and only do it if you really need to. Like fishing for food, it’s a necessity, not a given luxury.
