Card Meaning: Knight Of Cups
Astrology: Scorpio, Cancer and Pisces.
Age: young man.
Appearance: fair/brown hair, brown or blue eyes.
Knight of Cups is riding gracefully and calmly, he is not galloping across
the plains as do Knight of Wands and Knight of Swords. He is the knight but he
is also a messenger, we can see that by the wings on his helmet, reminiscence on
the Greek god Hermes, the messenger of the Gods. When this card shows up we can
expect invitations, proposals of romantic nature and generaly speaking -
good news. This is also the card that signifies intuition. Maybe we will meet
someone who is intuitive or maybe we will encounter the situation that will
demand from us more intuitive behaviour.
inducement, invitations, news, intuition, advancement, arrival, instant
Negative: lies, trickery, emotions abused, cunning.
Graceful, but not warlike; riding quietly, wearing a winged helmet, referring
to those higher graces of the imagination which sometimes characterize this
card. He too is a dreamer, but the images of the side of sense haunt him in his
vision. Divinatory Meanings: Arrival, approach--sometimes that of a
messenger; advances, proposition, demeanour, invitation, incitement. Reversed:
Trickery, artifice, subtlety, swindling, duplicity, fraud.
