King of Swords: The Wolf
So it was a given that there would be a wolf in this tarot deck. I admit it was a little tough to find the right tarot that would mesh well with the wolf. The wolf is such a powerful creature, full of beautiful symbolism and has such a presence in a great deal of mythology. A lot of the major arcana cards were already matched up, or didn’t quite work with the wolf. But did the wolf need to be a major card? I didn’t think so. Each card is as important as the next, and I think the powerful wolf ended up with an equally powerful card: the King of Swords. Cunning yet fair, strong willed and fearless, the wolf took the throne in this card with his sword by his side. Tiny white butterflies dot the rocks below to stay close to their king.
