If the King of Swords is a man in your life, you will find it hard to sway him from his way of thinking, which, in his mind is logical and decisive. You will need a good mind and logical approach when dealing with him.

This is a man who can help you through any problems you are having, albeit his assistance may come in the form of cold, hard facts and be lacking in emotional support.

If you are dealing with anything that needs an objective viewpoint then this is the man for the job. Lawyers, Accountants and Teachers may be featured as the King of Swords as they all have something to contribute when it comes to knowledge.

The signs of Gemini, Libra and Aquarius are also linked to the King of Swords.

He is a good conversationalist and possesses a wide berth of knowledge. Argumentative he may be, but he backs up his arguments with cold hard facts.
