King Role as Overleaf Energy in The Michael Teaching

The King is an action role who knows how to get things done on a large scale. Adept, or at least, prone to  delegation and directorship, the King Essence is often a perfectionist and sometimes imperious. Created as the aspect to assume the position of greatest dominion atop whatever hierarchy it will find itself in.

Often ambitious at any Soul Age, yet tending to peak with the Young Soul era, the King when in a male body may assume an aggressive posture when grandeur or might has failed to win the day.(Donald Trump or Charlemagne) In a female body, a queen-king might have attributes of self confidence and presence that might be thought of as masculine or at least highly assertive: Madonna, Xena, Katherine Hepburn.

Life Metaphor and Implied Motto

Sovereign self determination is everything! Life is a kingdom to be ruled.

Cultural Archetype- Exalted Arcana
