King of Hearts: The Caring Protector Card

1 FEB to 7 FEB

“Leadership is not about being in charge. Leadership is about taking care of those in your charge.” -Simon Sinek

Possibly the most caring and loving person you will ever meet. People who share the King of Hearts card are the most understanding and caring in your life. Wised and heartful by nature, these are the people who will always be willing to be there for you every step of the way. They have no time for hate.

They are very confident and know their worth. No one can bring them down. And although they have fewer glory moments, this is usually caused by others. Yet they bounce back pretty quickly, so you won’t see them mourning a past situation for too long.

They resemble unconditional love. As they genuinely care about the people in their lives and even in their work. But they lack the same passion when it comes to their lover. They are too invested in other relationships in their lives, making them neglect to dedicate their love and devotion to one person.

They are very devoted always to improve their knowledge. And they expand their understanding to many areas. Born natural leaders, they make excellent spiritual teachers. Yet, they also make great traders and sellers. They also show interest in psychology and philosophy. They will bring you kind acts and lots of joy. Having someone with a King of Hearts in your life is a blessing.

Personal Message: Your heart is the ruler of your being. You are kind and translate pure love to anyone who gets the pleasure to meet you. The way you see others is lovely as it is your genuine personality that comes across as very charismatic. There aren’t many bad days on your calendar. Yet when you get involved with people who aren’t as genuine as you, you tend to get hurt. And even though it would be best if you didn’t change your ways.

It’s worth being aware that not everyone carries the same kind heart as you. And when it comes to love, it would be worth treating them in a more connected and romantic way. Too often, you carry that kind of attitude that you have with others anywhere you go. And when it comes to the person you love, you need to love them with more intensity.

Recognize why you fell for them and appreciate their love for you. Or else you might not be able to create a romantic relationship that has the potential to be long-lasting.
