Knight of Cups




Upright position:


Intelligence, romantic dreamer, the coming or going of an emotional matter


The Knight of Cups like most if not all of the Cups suit, is an optimistic, good card to see in a reading. Like all Knights/Knights, this one often comes bearing messages. Usually these are the kind of good news that we all want to receive.

General: In general the Knight of Cups would tell you that things are going to be going well. You are likely to be feeling charged up, ready for action. This card often means that good news (particularly in the realm of matters of the heart) is likely to be headed your way soon.

Work: Work projects are likely to move ahead in a positive way, sooner than you're expecting, when this card shows in a reading. You should be proud of your accomplishments and your contributions.

This is a very, very positive card to get when you are asking about love. If you are single, this card often indicates that someone is about to "sweep you off your feet." If you are in a relationship, the Knight can indicate final commitments/marriage. At the least, in the context of love, this card means positive messages, things that you would like to hear. Be open to exploration of your feelings.

Finances: This card can mean that you will soon get very good news about your finances. The Knight often indicates messages that are uplifting and positive. If you're concerned about finances and get this card in a reading, if nothing else figure out exactly where you are financially, to the penny. The situation is almost certainly not as bad as you think.

Health: If you are waiting on test results regarding your health and you get this card, relax and know that the news will be good. In general with your health, the Knight means you will soon be feeling better/even healthier!

Spirituality: You are getting ready to enter new realms in your spiritual exploration. The Knight often means that you will soon receive a message from spirit (this sometimes comes through another human, however,) which will open up new ways of looking at things for you. Pay attention to things that seem like coincidence. These are often the way that spirit "gets through" to us.




Reversed position:


Trickery, fraud, sensuality, idleness, an untruthful person


The Knight of Cups reversed, is generally an optimistic, good card to see in a reading. The appearance of Knights often mean that you will soon be recieving a messages. Usually such messages are positive, with the cups suit.

General: In general the reversed Knight of Cups means that things are going to be going well, although you may be feeling pulled in several different directions now. Prioritize.

Work: The reversed Knight can indicate that you're feeling some resentment about the demands that your work is making on you, even though, in general, work should be going well. If you are feeling this way, give it some thought, and see if you can "unpack it." You may simply need a vacation: a long weekend could be a great start.

Love: The reversed Knight of Cups is still a positive card to get when you are asking about love. It can mean that if you are single, you may soon meet someone who might"sweep you off your feet." You may need some time to adjust to changes, if so.. give yourself the time you need. If you are in a relationship, the Knight can indicate that one or both partners may be feeling emotionally overwhelmed by the demands of the relationship. This can be worked out if both parties want to do so. Explore, and share, your feelings. Pay attention to the signals your partner is giving out, however. If he/she seems overwhelmed, this is not the time.

Finances: You may be tired, tired of working, tired of worrying about money, tired of everything, when you recieve the reversed Knight. This will not last, but you may need to distract yourself from financial issues when this card appears. No, you may not have everything that you want, but you are very likely to have (or acquire) everything that you need. Keep a solid perspective. Give yourself a break.

Health: The reversed Knight says that you may be going from zero to sixty in a negative way with regard to your health. Don't make negative assumptions until all the facts are in (if ever.) Think postively. Dread about health and about health procedures is almost always worse than the reality of them. Read about healing.

Spirituality: It may be difficult to find the time to enhance your spiritual knowlege when your life is as busy as this card indictates. Know that it doesn't have to take hours. A brief mediation or a few minutes talking or reading about spiritual matters is much better than nothing. Take the time. You will benefit more than you can imagine.
