The Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups is the sensitive, stormy Romeo in the Zodiac.
Changeable and visionary, he is a poet who lives faithfully by his
emotions and his dreams. When this Knight appears it means change is
arriving at great speed — usually in the super-charged areas of sex
and creativity.

You are headed for an ecstatic and delicious experience with a new project or hobby. Your energy is becoming more expansive, and your fear of the new is shrinking. The Knight’s appearance may also indicate that such a person is entering your realm, and as the nature of the Knight is extreme, he can have contradictory and paradoxical effects on your life. He brings with him incredible passion, a love of all things beautiful, and an uncanny ability to read your emotions. But as he is ruled by water, he can also prove to be impractical, withdrawn, and afraid of commitment. Fasten your seat belts! It’s going to be a bumpy night.

When the card is reversed, it’s a warning to investigate the reality of your current situation, and gauge whether you might be moving too quickly — or perhaps too slowly. Are you taking an active role in your own life, or are you passively allowing things to happen to you? This is an opportunity to soberly look at exactly whose dream you’re really living.
