The Earth element in tarot refers to matters of the physical world / energy. This suit represents something earthy, tangible, solid, dense or steady. Money, physical body, health, career, resources (including computers), security, stability, safety, and matters of physical manifestation here on Earth are all embodied by this suit.

In Tarot, the Court Cards represent the people, archetypes, or situations in our lives or within ourselves. They can be the most elusive cards in the deck, because they are filled with flexibility, variety, people, and situations that are ever-changing. This part of the deck requires deep spiritual listening, for the story may not be as clearly presented until you tune in. The meaning of the suits (elements) in the Court Cards carries over from the Numbers Cards. 

King of Earth

The King of Earth represents hard work, stability, steadiness and diligence. It signifies a desire to hold a strong personal reputation and higher status. With Capricorn energy behind it, when you think of the King of Earth, think Leader, President, CEO—someone who likes to take care of people and situations and be in control. Consider the King card a mini-Emperor. A card with Cardinal qualities, it brings the message of new beginnings, forward movement, initiation, rules, and creation.
