The King

The King archetype brings together and governs the powers of the other archetypes—balancing, moderating, and integrating their energies. This archetype has two main functions. First, he creates order by connecting us to our center and governing our life. And second, he provides for self and others.

Posts in this category deal with these main topics: axis mundi, balance, moderation, integrity, discernment, sovereignty, organization, natural laws, creating, inspiring, blessing, and the two shadows of the King—the Tyrant Usurper and the Weakling Abdicator. They also address the synergistic King and the nature of true leadership.
