I find this card odd. Such a Pagan image, from the mythic forest & all that; ivy, antlers, a forest clearing, and yet in the book she writes;

"In the MAAT Tarot, the King of Swords is the "risen" Jesus of Nazareth under the guise of Joseph of Arimathea, the name of his father. He is now the maimed King having suffered physical injuries after taking on the Roman authroities"

Try as I might I just see nothing of Jesus or Christianity in this image. I've been thinking about it & looking at it since yesterday and it just seems so beautifully & utterly Pagan...
