Traditionally The Knight of Cups was described as a young male adult from approximately 22 to 30 years of age.  In modern times, Knights also can represent women if their energies and personality descriptions fit. If the person depicted by The Knight of Cups is older than 30 years of age, he or she may be displaying signs of emotional immaturity and finding it hard to grow up.  Description wise, The Knight of Cups was very handsome and attractive with fair hair and eyes of blue. Skin was pale and features fine and sometimes feminine-like.  He had a slender and delicate physique with a work of art profile. His slim, soft hands and long narrow fingers were those of the psychic, musician or artist.  He had impeccable dress sense and a love of fashion. His appearance was refined and sophisticated often attracting the name of Dandy or Dapper, at times appearing pretty and feminine-like. He was well mannered friendly, charming, poetic and flirtatious. Remember, these are the old traditional descriptions and may bear no resemblance at all to the majority of people in the world when it comes to skin and hair colouring.  It is his personality description that should be concentrated on and not his looks when interpreting The Knight of Cups.

Striking a Balance Knight of Cups

When The Knight of Cups appears in a Reading, his energy is having an influence on The Querant’s issue or it can suggest that his energy is badly needed in this instance. He can represent a person, an atmosphere, an event, a message, advice or a way of life/behaviour/attitude that either needs to be taken on board or kept under control. With all Tarot CardsThe Knight of Cups can have several interpretations. Because of the nature of Knights and the influence by Fire, their energy can be excessive or extreme at times. Where The Knight of Cups is concerned he can also be unpredictable.  Knights appearing are a sign that balance is usually required in the area of your life The Knight’s Suit represents.

When The Knight of Cups is drawn, one must look at the surrounding CardsThe Querant’s issue and the Question to determine if this Knight is having a healthy influence on the situation or not. In his Upright Aspect, he may be helping the situation rather than hurting it, but we must tread carefully for all Knights are influenced by Fire and because of their Rank and age are prone to sometime outrageous, reckless or self-serving behaviour which at times they seem quite powerless to control. With just about all The Knights they are extremely good when they are being good but can be extremely obnoxious when being bad. With this in mind don’t be immediately drawn in or fooled by the apparent amicability and benevolence of The Knight of Cups, for even though he is of the Water Element and associated with kindness, thoughtfulness, caring and consideration, he has does have a flip side to him, an alter ego, even when Upright, but especially so when Reversed. When this side of him kicks in, it can leave us in a state of disbelief or completely disillusioned and disappointed for his behaviour can become less than Chivalrous or Gallant, descending into duplicity and manipulation.He can lead us up the garden path and astray as we fall totally under his spell.

Leaving that aside for the moment, we will have ample time to understand more about the above later, let us look at what This Knight may be trying to tell us or The Querant when he appears in a Reading. In his Upright Aspect he is generally benign but does have the potential to take advantage if it suits his needs. So, when The Knight of Cups appears in a Reading and is Upright, how do we know if he is to be taken at face value or whether he is trying to manipulate the situation, or us?

The First thing I do when The Knight of Cups appears in anyone’s Reading is to look at the Surrounding Cards to get a feeling for the Reading as a whole and determine where this chap might fit in. If the Cards surrounding him are pleasant and positive then I will run with The Knight of Cups more uplifting and appealing Aspects. I will view him as a welcome sign in The Reading, his energy having a positive influence, for the time being. If there is a lack of Cups Cards in the Reading with too many stressful or intense work-related Cards then he might be turning up to highlight the need to take time out for more pleasurable pursuits, relationships or to attend to your emotional needs. You may be blocking out this side of your life on the basis that you do not have time for it. You may also be trying to avoid your feelings or keeping a lid on strong emotions by keeping constantly busy.

The Acting on Feelings Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups usually suggests that you entering a strongly emotional period of your life where affairs of the heart may figure strongly. When The Knight of Cups is Upright, then this emotional event is heading towards you, it is on its way. Deep Feelings are involved. It is for certain you are feeling in a romantic mood and will be finding it hard to hide the intensity of your feelings. You may be thinking about making a romantic gesture but are unsure of taking that risky step. The Knight of Cups gives you the nudge to go and do it now before you talk yourself out of it.  The time is right and if you make your move now there is a very good chance it will be well received. Don’t lose out on the chance of love and happiness by being fearful of rejection. Sometimes we have to kiss many frogs before we find our prince or Princess. The Knight of Cups can suggest it is time to follow your heart, time to get in touch with your sensitive side, time to act on your feelings instead of daydreaming about them.

Rekindling Romance Knight of Cups

His presence in your Reading might be indicating that it is time for a little love in your life. If you are currently in a relationship then he is urging you to set aside some time to be romantic with your partner.  Do something remarkably romantic just to let them know how much you love them. Take your partner or spouse out on a real date and tell them how much they mean to you. Making an effort where your relationship is concerned can reap so many wonderful rewards. It can initiate a whole new beginning or take your relationship to a new level. It is bound to be reciprocated and the result will be in bringing you as a couple so much closer together. Try and re-capture those early days of your relationship and reminisce about what drew you to each other in the first place. This will keep your relationship fresh and intimate. If your sex life has been less than active or passionate in recent times then let The Knight of Cups into your life to liven it up. Remember when you first went out together? How you spent time on showering and dressing to look well for each other? Has all that slipped? Do you sit around in the same old shapeless leisure suit, or in the case of men don’t bother tidying up your beard or hair for weeks on end? Do you not bother going out anymore or perhaps you don’t even eat your meals at the table anymore where you can talk and discuss the day? Do you favour eating in front of the television instead? Do you regularly go to bed at separate times? This is a sign that you have become complacent in your relationship and something needs to be done about it. The Knight of Cups would swoop into your house and give both of you a strong lecture on the importance of romance and appearances. He would ask you to honestly ask yourselves if you were to go back in time would either of you be interested in the other if you looked and behaved as you are today? The Knight of Cups asks you to think about this and then do something about it to rekindle the passion.

Desperate for Love Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups often suggests that your mind may be preoccupied with thoughts of another or you may have decided to actively go out in search of romance and love.  You may have been single for some time and now feel the need for some love and romance in your life. It is time to stop daydreaming about love and instead actively do something about. This will find you concentrating on your appearance and dressing to impress. It is important not to act too desperate or decide a social outing has been a waste of time unless you meet someone. I had a friend years ago who was always on the look-out for a relationship. She tried very hard to catch the man of her dreams and I think the men could smell this off her and so found her overwhelming and backed off. She would deem the night a complete failure and refer to it as ‘a total waste of make-up’.

Controlling Emotions Knight of Cups

The presence of The Knight of Cups in a reading could indicate that your emotions are playing havoc with your normal routine and stability. You may feel all over the place and find it hard to concentrate on anything other than the situation he is representing. You need to determine whether the level of emotion you are experiencing is in direct proportion to your situation or excessive. Is this Knight’s energy causing your great happiness or is he disturbing your normal calm equilibrium? Is he helping or hurting? Too much emotion can be difficult to live with and can get in the way of how we function on a daily basis, so if you feel slightly out of control where your emotions are concerned then he may be a sign that balance is required.

The Dream Chasing Knight of Cups

When The Knight of Cups appears in your Reading you have to stop and question if there is any area of your life where you might be entertaining unrealistic hopes or are chasing dreams that have little or no chance of being realised. He can suggest that you are not terribly grounded or practical and that you may be looking for a fairy-tale lifestyle that does not exist. If any of this touches home or falls uncomfortably close to the bone, then you must work hard to remove any rose-tinted glasses you may be wearing and take your head out of the clouds. If you set unrealistic ideals or standards then you are bound to be bitterly disappointed when they do not work out.

I Come Bearing Gifts Knight of Cups

The presence of The Knight of Cups in a Reading begs us to question the nature of the Cup he extends. It is very much an offer or proposal of some sort, and usually when he is Upright, the offer is one that stands a very good chance of being of emotional benefit to you. What this Knight is carrying in his Cup may be of great value to you. Therefore keep your eyes open for golden opportunities that might come your way or are directly offered to you. Whatever it is that is on offer is bound to bring you great joy but at the same time, be very sure of the source before you accept it. Make sure there are no strings attached or hidden agendas. However, this is usually a genuine offer unless Surrounding Cards tell you otherwise.

The Creative, Perceptive and Intuitive Knight of Cups

Have an issue or situation that is proving difficult or challenging to sort out? If so, The Knight of Cups appearing in your Reading asks you to use your imagination and think creatively rather than logically to find the best solution. Think this one through and use your natural powers of perception. Look beyond the obvious options that pop immediately into your mind and instead spend some time letting your mind play around with random ideas and solutions that may be slightly off centre or unconventional. Outside the box thinking in this case may prove very worthwhile. Let this Knight influence you creatively and you are bound to surprise everyone with your amazing ideas or answers to challenging and stubborn obstacles. This Knight can indicate that you are about to enter a very creative phase in your life.

The Spiritual and Psychic Knight of Cups

The Cups Suit is extremely psychic and spiritual, and with The Knight’s love of action, his presence may suggest that you are seeking to develop this side of your personality. You may be actively taking classes or entering a course of study to enhance and finely tune your gifts. You may also be working towards taking religious vows. He asks you to listen to the voice within and call on your intuitive side when making major decisions in your life. You are no stranger to gut feelings about things and have found that they generally have been proven right in the past. Don’t try to use your logic all the time. Step back and do not rush into anything. Allow the information to assimilate and any messages from the subconscious to surface naturally. Move slowly and take the time to reflect upon your situation. You will know when the time is right to become more active in this situation.

The Amicable and Benevolent Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups turning up in your Reading can simply imply that you are feeling very benevolent and kind-hearted. You may be in an obliging mood and happy to offer your help and support wherever it is needed. Indeed if there is an atmosphere of upset around you or are aware of someone who is going through a bad time or needs something, whether friend, work colleague or bare acquaintance there is a very good chance that you will be the one to make a huge difference and turn the situation around. However to do this you must not just sit there feeling sorry for whoever it is or wait for them to come to you with hand out held or head hung low. Instead you must take action. Give the matter some thought and determine in what way you can help. This Card suggests that you have been blessed with a loving and caring nature so are amply qualified and entitled to make the approach and extend the offer of help and support. You will be glad if you do but will deeply regret it if you don’t. Push aside any notions that might suggest to you that you are intruding, that it is not your place or that the responsibility lies elsewhere. The Knight of Cups tells you that if you feel strongly enough about the situation then you are obliged to do something about it. Don’t be nervous, shy or timid in your approach but be sure to let the receiving party know that you are looking for nothing in return and that your reward is simply to see the person or persons get through whatever issues they are caught up in. You are in a position to help and that is all. People are sometimes wary of accepting offers of help as they feel under obligation or in debt to their benefactor so you must not go about offering help in a showy or condescending manner. You must be discreet and assure them that you help because someone once did the same for you and now you would like to give back to the Universe. Assure them of your confidence and discretion at all times.

The Peacemaker and Mediator Knight of Cups

On a similar note, if there is a tense situation around you, warring parties or a hostile atmosphere, then let you be the one to act as peacemaker, go-between, mediator or negotiator. Keep an open mind and listen to the grievances of both sides without taking sides. With your wonderful power of diplomacy and understanding, you will be able to find some form of common ground to work from which will initiate the healing process so that harmony can be restored. Likewise, if you have fallen out with a friend or family member don’t just sit around brooding and sulking about the whole issue. Be the one who makes the first move and extend the olive branch. Excess emotions are likely to have been the cause of any arguments causing bad feeling and animosity between those involved. Be the one to do the right thing and apologise or forgive if necessary. The longer you allow the unhappy situation to fester the lower your mood will become and the more entrenched the situation will become. Adopt a calm approach.

The Socialite Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups turning up in your Reading can suggest that you are planning a celebration or party and are in the process of extending invitations to friends and families. Then again, it may be you who has received an invitation and are looking around for the perfect present or gift to bring with you. There is certainly an air of anticipation and excitement about the upcoming event and you will be determined to have a great time.  This could be the party or wedding of the year or possibly a family re-union or engagement party. The Knight of Cups can often suggest meetings of one sort or another which are of an emotional nature. These meetings tend to bring people together who have mutual interests and connections, very often family and friends. The Knight of Cups extends a warm welcome to everyone and is genuinely happy to see you. He can imply that you are getting great pleasure out of spending time with friends and family, or if you have been keeping yourself to yourself for the last while then you should make time to be more sociable, get out and about, visit and keep in touch with loved ones. Under this particular influence of The Knight of Cups there will be the temptation to overindulge in Alcohol and Food so try to pace yourself and think moderation. Think bad hangover too and this may discourage you.

The Fashion Icon and Trend-Setter Knight of Cups

When The Knight of Cups appears in a Reading he can suggest that you are paying close attention to your appearance. You may decide to put yourself forward for a make-over or a total re-vamp of your wardrobe. You want to look your best and this may be simply from a personal point of view or because a certain situation demands it of you. He suggests a love of fashion and keeping up with the latest styles and trends.  You probably take hours preparing to go out and no doubt plan your wardrobe weeks in advance. You have a tendency to worry about what others think of you all the time and find it difficult and upsetting when you discover someone dislikes or criticises you. You like to stand out from the crowd so may go for a slightly eccentric or quirky style of fashion, which others then may attempt to copy. You do like to wear clothes that you won’t see on anyone else. You probably enjoy travelling abroad when you want to purchase something very special. You like your clothes to be the centre of attention and the focus of conversation. You have the ability to talk endlessly about how you put your outfit together and your choice of colours without giving any information about where you purchased it or how much you paid for it.  You even allow people to believe that you had some of your garments especially made for you. You enjoy being elusive about this side of you for the last thing you want is others running out to buy the same. The thing is that some of your purchases are quite cheap but with your wonderful creative imagination and natural flair, you have the knack of working them with other items so that they look designer and expensive.

This Knight’s presence may also suggest that are trying to polish up your appearance and smooth off any rough edges that are not working in your favour. Then again you may be contriving a look or attitude that does not truly represent you at all. It may all be a front and a façade with designer clothes and a studied sophistication and elegance that does not come naturally. You may be trying to impress someone by giving a false impression of yourself. If The Knight of Cups is surrounded by Reversed Pentacle Cards then you may be spending too much money on clothes and luxuries, or it may be possible that you are seeking access into the inner circles of the wealthy set by appearing to be one of them. There may be a hidden agenda behind all the finery and manufactured appearance.

The ‘Too Stressful For Me’ It Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups has a tendency to remove himself quickly from any form of distressing or unpleasant situation. He uses the excuse that he has not got the stomach for it or that it has nothing to do with him. Often the truth is that he has not got the courage to face up to the situation or deal with those that are involved. If this is the case with you, then The Upright Knight of Cups implores you to do the right thing and face your problems head on, in fact be the one to go out after them rather than sit waiting for them to catch up with you. Don’t try to sweep them under the carpet or bury your head in the sand. Emotionally upsetting as they may be, you will feel proud and gain much respect once you take charge and control. The Knight of Cups generally despises himself after he runs away instead of confronting his problems. Don’t let that happen to you. If this is your mess then let it be you who is the one to clean it up. Don’t leave it for others to tidy up. This may involve you having to grow up and assume responsibility for once. Tough as it will be, it has to be done.

The Personality and Appearance of Knight of Cups

As a description of a person The Knight of Cups will be aged between 22-30 years with fair hair and blue/green eyes. He is traditionally of slim build with a distinct elegance and sophisticated air. He is romantic, poetic, imaginative and creative. A lover of music and the arts, he is a sensitive, sentimental soul who feels and responds on a deeply level. He is charming, gallant and chivalrous, a true Knight in Shining Armour. He is touched by the beauty and aesthetics in people and nature. He will be a soft, gentle person who speaks quietly and calmly but may appear delicate at times. He is strongly in touch with his feelings and the feelings of others, but can get easily hurt or upset which causes his famous reputation for being moody or sulky.  He is not afraid to show his feminine side and will be seen to cry during both happy and sad movies. He is deeply connected to his family and enjoys spending time with them. This Knight will look forward to the day when he too will have his own family.

In his spare time he likes nothing better than to hang out with his friends or get lost in his creative projects such as art and music. He likes peace and quiet, and walks by the sea. He is a good swimmer, preferring the pool or ocean for exercise rather than muscle building in the gym. He likes to read and go to the movies regularly. He is more a wine drinker than a beer swiller and his taste in music will tend towards love songs, golden oldies and classical.  Due to his love of nostalgia and the past, you will find him attending concerts of artists his parents listened to as he grew up. He is not instantly drawn to new or loud music but does like to keep up to-date with new bands. However, he can appear out of place at some of the heavier concerts and wild music festivals. When he holidays, he more than likely heads for the sea or to romantic settings such as Castles, or cities associated with love and fashion such as Paris or Rome.  He has a love of history but again from a nostalgic point of view. He enjoys period dramas that often depict an unrealistic representation of times when ladies were ladies and men were men. He is a stickler for etiquette, good manners and politeness.

Peace loving and a seeker of harmony, The Knight of Cups is tactful and diplomatic in his dealings with others. He will often appear refined, immaculately dressed and fashionable. He takes his time and is not prone to hurry. Obviously these descriptions apply to his positive side so we must remember that like all The Court Cards they do have a Negative Aspect, and when it comes to the Knights, because they are influenced by Fire, these negatives can be quite extreme. The Knight of Cups is a dreamer and has a tendency to idealise life and love. He may entertain unrealistic goals or ideas and get caught up in grand schemes that end up going nowhere. He will avoid conflict and unpleasantness at all costs and does not like to get his hands dirty. He prefers to take a back seat when vital or important decisions are being made as this causes him a great degree of distress.

Relationships and The Knight of Cups

Love and Romance is on The Way Knight of Cups

And so to the ever important area of Relationships where The Cups Suit are mostly concerned. When The Knight of Cups appears in a Relationship Reading, prepare yourself for the arrival of a new relationship, lover or a time of intense romance and flirting. Attraction is in the air. Your Knight in Shining Armour or in this case Amour (love) is close by and this Knight is very different from the Wild and Roving Knight of Wands. Here we find the Fairy-Tale Knight who rescued Rapunzel from her tower and brought Sleeping Beauty out of her slumber with his long lingering kiss. This Knight approaches love in the old-fashioned traditional way, through wooing and courting.  Valentine’s Day is one of his favourite days in the year along with your Birthday and Anniversaries when he really goes to town on making them a special occasion. He enjoys all that goes with dating, and likes to feel protective towards you. As we look at this Golden Cup this can symbolically represent how he feels about you. He may consider that he has struck gold in finding you or that he now has in his care something precious and of great value that needs to be carefully and respectfully handled. Gentle and devoted this Knight may very well be besotted with you and has worshipped you from a distance for some time.

There is a very good chance you have caught the eye of an admirer who has developed strong feelings for you. These feelings may have been kept under wraps or control exerted over them for some time, but now the person involved is prepared to make a move. It is quite likely that someone is going to declare their feelings for you or you may be asked out for a drink, dinner or a very special date. Whoever it is will not take the casual approach so be prepared for possible flamboyant romantic gestures. If you are female you could easily receive a wonderful bouquet of flowers to your front door or work desk. This person is not afraid to express their feelings and you will be left in no doubt as to the nature of their interest in you. Should you refuse or reject their advances they may very well play on your emotions by threatening to kill themselves for they cannot possibly live without you. The person represented by The Knight of Cups finds it difficult to take no for an answer and will keep coming back at you until they wear you down.  In fact their initial approach may be quite overwhelming. The romantic attention being bestowed upon you will change the way you feel about yourself.  If this Knight of Cups attention is desired then you could easily find yourself floating just above the ground with a silly grin on your face and unable to concentrate on work or daily chores. You will want to hug yourself for being so adored and worshipped. Here you will find the person who you deserve at long last. A partner or lover, who adores the ground you walk upon, hangs on your every word, treats you like a lady, is caring considerate and wants to be with you all the time. Really this Knight you have found just can’t get enough of you and you will feel in seventh heaven.

The person The Knight of Cups represents may be about to propose or offer you something of emotional value. It could be an invitation to a dance, social occasion, to move in together or possibly marriage. He may be about to pop the question.

The Idealistic Romantic Knight of Cups

The Knight of Cups idealises love, is caring, calm and gentle. He will be sensitive to your needs and likes harmony. He will avoid conflict at all costs so there should be no arguments and rows but there may be some silent moods or even sulking if things don’t go his way. Generally though, he is happy as long as you are happy and he will do everything in his power to keep it that way. He is comparable to the Troubadour who rode the lands penning love songs and poems for Queens and Princesses. He will do the same for you but it will be more like wining and dining, roses, chocolates and silly cards. He simply loves romance and all that goes with it.

The Deeply Romantic and Loving Knight of Cups

In the Upright Knight of Cups his intentions may be very pure, like a Knight in Shining Armour; he may ride in and sweep you off your feet with his gallant and chivalrous manner. He is the partner who will give you his coat if you are cold, open doors and pull out seats for you. He will drop you straight to the door of the restaurant to save you getting your hair wet in the rain and will happily trail around after you, in and out of fashion boutiques, holding your bags while you try on clothes in the fitting room and then give you his rapt attention when you ask how you look. This Knight will find shopping for clothes with you the perfect day out for he loves fashion, and for each shop you enter, he will be quick to find the men’s section where he will lose himself flicking through rails and holding clothes up to his frame in the mirror. There is a chance that when you do go to look for him to seek his opinion on what you have tried on, he will more than likely be in a fitting room himself, with a heap of clothes to get through. You might find that by the end of the day, your Knight has more shopping bags than you do. His shopping bill will probably be much larger too as he has a love of fine fabrics and designer labels.  He thinks nothing of splashing out on good clothes and shoes. He is a lover of the latest trend in underwear too so you won’t be disappointed when he begins to peel the layers off. This guy looks after himself and is the furthest thing from scruffy you can get. He likes to look nice but he also wants to look nice for you so you won’t find this Knight turning up on your door for a date looking as if he is heading off to work in the fields while you are dressed up to the nines. He takes dressing very seriously so it is not uncommon for him to start planning his outfit for an important occasion or event weeks in advance. He may not be everyone’s cup of tea and certainly if you like your men a bit rough around the edges, rugged and muscular, The Knight of Cups may not be for you. You won’t find any dirt under his finger nails for he rarely gets his hands dirty, he will never smell of anything other than expensive after shave and he keeps his hair tidy and knows his hairdresser on first name basis. He may even accompany you for Spa Treatments and pedicures.

There is nothing that The Knight of Cups will not do for you, for your wish is his command. He constantly expresses his deep feelings for you. He will also brighten and warm your day with constant romantic, and often risqué texts. He will phone as often as he can leaving umpteen voice mails telling you that he just had to ring to let you know how much he loves you. This will find you making excuses to run to the restroom in work, with your phone secretly tucked in your pocket or sleeve so that you can listen to all his romantic declarations. If you protest and say it is too much he will simply dismiss your complaints with his poetic manner of speech, claiming to be powerless to stop himself listening to your beautiful angelic musical recorded voice message, his day being meaningless until the time comes when he can hold you in his arms.

And when it does come to holding you in his arms, you may find it hard to get anything done for he is very touchy-feely, affectionate and tender. He enjoys long lingering kisses and even longer love making sessions. In fact many of his gestures and delivery of speech will be laced with sexual innuendo leaving you quite breathless at times, especially when he whispers lustful words in your ear when in the company of others. He is the master of seduction and you will find it very hard to resist this Knight and his amorous behaviour.

If you get the purest form of This Knight of Cups, then this guy will only have eyes for you and everything he says, he will mean 100%. Here is a man who will never forget your birthday or anniversaries and will always have something special planned for the occasion. Consider yourself lucky, and hopefully you feel the same for him. Remember that The Knight of Cups will hopefully mature into The King of Cups one day and should you find him a good match, then you can look forward to a very happy and extremely loving lifetime together for he has the makings of a caring and affectionate partner, husband, indulging parent and doting grandfather. This guy is definitely marriage material and a lifer. If you are lucky enough to end up with The Pure Upright Knight of Cups, then you can prepare to grow old with him for he will love you as much today as when you are old and grey. He will stick with you through thick and thin. Luck you and lucky him.

The Smothering With Love Knight of Cups

However, there is always a catch isn’t there? Let us look at other Aspects of this Upright Knight of Cups. So you have this Knight in shining armour wooing and courting you 24/7. You are head over heels in love and spend every free second together, he is attentive and adoring, constantly as King after your welfare and if there is anything he can do for you. He is consistently by your side or texting and ringing to see when you are coming home because he misses you. When you are out with your friends he rings every twenty minutes to see how you are getting on and what exact time you want to be picked up for he won’t hear of you getting a taxi, even though all your friends are getting one. He thinks it is not safe and he is just trying to be nice.  He is constantly surprising you with gifts and cuddly toys or leaving romantic notes for you in your coat pocket or handbag. He spends more time getting ready to go out than you do and may go back into the house to change because he doesn’t ‘feel right’. He prefers dinners for two instead of dining out with a group. He insists on holding your hand everywhere you go and refuses to allow you to carry even one shopping bag. When you sit down in the evening to watch your favourite soap his hands are all over you and he wants you to cuddle into him. He is constantly suggesting early nights and you can’t move in the bed without attracting attention from him. He asks you several times a day if you are okay and whether you still love him. He texts you to let you know that you forgot to kiss him goodbye before you left the house. His clothes are spilling over into your wardrobe space and he has more face and hair products than you do. He knows when and where all the Wedding Fairs are on and thinks they would make a good day out. He insists on the two of you having Sunday Lunch with his parents every week and rings his mother nearly as often as he rings you. He is the one who asks to hold your friend’s babies and talks non-stop about having a large family one day because he loves kids. He cannot understand when you want to go away for a weekend with your friends, leaving him on his own, for he never wants to leave you.

Then one day you wake up and as you try to slip out of the bed unnoticed, just to use the bathroom or make the coffee, he instantly becomes wide-awake and wanting to know if you are alright, where you are going, and if he can get you anything. He is only asking to be helpful because he just wants to make you happy, but you suddenly feel stifled and smothered by his constant attention. You either ignore his question or become snappy and short with him, telling him that you think you can manage going to the bathroom or making your coffee all by yourself. He then asks you if you are okay as you sound upset, but you march out the door slamming it behind you and he is left behind confused and hurt by what has happened. You on the other side of the door feel like running out onto the streets and disappearing for the day for you cannot bear another moment under the same roof as him. You cannot believe this has suddenly happened but you know it has been brewing for some time. The fact of the matter is that he is just too much, way too much, overpowering with his feelings. You feel he is everywhere you turn and that you cannot make a move or any decisions without him wanting to take that load off your shoulders. You feel terribly cossetted and smothered by his presence. You are sickeningly tired with all the nonsense texts and phone calls, and if he doesn’t stop this holding of hands bit everywhere you go, as if you are love-struck teenagers attached at the hip, then you just might vomit on the spot.

You feel terrible because he is such a nice guy but that is the crunch isn’t it? This version of The Knight of Cups is too nice, too good, overly-loving and attentive. So spotless is his personality and so intent his feelings for you that you feel a right bitch for wanting something different and thinking as you do. Really, you wonder why all your girlfriends envy your relationship instead of the men they are constantly chasing around and trying to pin down. They have to pull all kinds of stunts to get their attention or anything from them, and there you are with your Knight of Cups, a gem in your hands, gushing forth with love, affection, care and romance. God, how you would love to have a fling with some bad boy rogue, just like The Knight of Wands for a change, someone to make you feel alive and buzzing. Someone who you may have to wait for days to get a text or phone call from as you check your phone every ten minutes, just in case.  You feel you are drowning in a sea of emotion, his emotions, when you are with him, and also just want to be able to sit down in the evening without attracting any sexual attention from him. If only he played a little harder to get, if only he wasn’t so goddamn nice all the time, if only he gave you cause to have a row with him or did something to make you jealous, if only he wasn’t so predictable and reliable. You think you have gone mad for thinking such things, for after all, isn’t that what every woman wants? He is the ideal, loving romantic, chivalrous partner, but when we get too much of a good thing then we may not want it so much. The Knight of Cups in this Upright Aspect has lost his Elemental Balance. He has allowed Water to dominate, and his Fires to subdue. He needs to bring a certain amount of The Knight of Wands into his personality for when it comes down to it, women like men to be men and not some shadow image of themselves. They want all the love and romance but they also want the uncertainty and having to be kept on their toes Aspect of The Knight of Wands. This works both ways, and without a certain amount of mystery between the two, things can become mundane and people complacent.

The personalities this Aspect of The Knight of Cups represents often are terribly confused as to why they cannot make a success of relationships or maintain them after the initial heady intense period. They see their only crime as being loving, caring, considerate, romantic, and affectionate, adoring and devoted. What they fail to see is that, just like life, there is a time and a place for everything and therefore there is a time and place for all the above, but not constantly. Regardless of how your partner lapped it up in the early days and couldn’t get enough of it, a time comes when it becomes tedious, boring and regrettably irritating all at the one time. In the early days, those involved in a relationship don’t need any personal space because they just want to be together. However, as time goes on and the relationship develops, both need to learn to take back their individual personal space for periods of time at a go so that they can do their own things, meet their own friends, spend the day or night on their own, chill out in front of the telly, or go to bed with a good book without having to consult the other. This maintains freshness in the relationship.  Even in a marriage, the same applies. The Knight of Cups in the above Aspect does not need personal space and so does not understand their partner’s need for it. If their partner does bring it up, then it is perceived by The Knight as a personal slight, rejection and a lack of love. Unless, The Knight can strike a balance with these tendencies, it won’t be long before their partner leaves or tells them to go because they want their life or identity back. When we are dealing with this age-group they should be mature enough to understand this without it having to be pointed out to them, but sometimes with The Knight of Cups, both Upright and Reversed, they fail to arrive at this understanding, and so their claustrophobic partners have no choice but to get away.

I have clients who come to me with this dilemma all the time and The Knight of Cups makes a regular appearance in their Readings. They act from a good heart but it needs to be balanced. I help them analyse their pattern of behaviour in relationships and hand on heart, it often mimics the above paragraph. I try my best to advise them to not be so nice all the time (I know that sounds terrible), to not give all away too soon. Instead to let a relationship evolve rather than force it. If you wear your heart on your sleeve and give everything of yourself too soon, then there is nothing left for later on. Boredom can set in from the other side and even though we all love a devoted puppy dog, an over eager one who constantly wants to play and wants our attention can get on our nerves. I advise them when they do meet someone to exercise some restraint and not to be too much in someone’s face with their feelings and declarations of love. One of the common issues among these clients is that they fall in love too easily and too readily, a common trait of The Knight of Cups, so desperate are they to be part of a couple. They see potential soul-mates in everyone and are prepared to use those special three words; ‘I love you’, far too soon. The thing is that because of their desperation and love of love, they confuse the early stage of all their relationships with ‘being in love’ and automatically feel that the subject of their affection and desire feels the same. ‘Sure what is the point in waiting around, let’s get engaged now for I have found exactly what I am looking for?’

Unless the other person is on the same wavelength they feel that everything is moving too fast and will start to pull back. It may be confusing for my clients to see their adored and loved one break off a relationship, only to fall into the arms of another who most certainly won’t treat them as well. The problem lies in being too idealistic about love and letting their feelings and emotions run away with themselves. Rose-tinted glasses are put on and love is seen in every chance encounter or casual introduction. Here is another form of Elemental Imbalance. We have Water literally spilling out over the top, with emotions and feelings surging towards the person involved like a giant tidal wave, while Fire then takes over and becomes overly eager and overly excited. The person on the receiving end becomes exhausted with the whole lot, and honestly would prefer to be single rather than have to put up with the constant unrelenting attention of their determined Suitor.  Just think of those times when you have entered a friend’s house only to have their dog jump all over you and every time you go to move they are on top of you, trying to lick your face and hands. At first you think it cute and tell your friend that it is fine as you love dogs, but after a while you just can’t wait to escape to clean the slobber off your hands and the hair off your clothes because it has all become too much.

The Self-Serving, Seducing Knight of Cups

Like The Page before him The Knight of Cups can also have the reputation of using charm and romance in order to seduce. If so, he will take what he wants and be gone in the morning as the Fire energies come in encouraging him to move on. When we see The Knight of Cups in a Relationship Spread we must question the nature of the relationship and how committed this Knight is likely to be. The first thing we do is consult the Surrounding Cards and The Reading as a whole, because on his own, The Upright Knight could easily mislead us with his innocent and charming appearance. We need to ascertain whether his intentions are pure and honest or deceptive and self-serving. His charming nature and behaviour can easily enchant and beguile, so he will be hard to resist. This type of Knight of Cups can be immature and has commitment issues. This could be down to hurts from previous relationships or is his way of covering up low self-esteem and emotional issues. He tends to veer towards instant gratification in love, as he is either unwilling to let a relationship mature and develop or lacks the skills to sustain it. In this manner he blows hot and cold and can be terribly unpredictable; all loved up one day and running from it the next. We see this scenario in both The Upright and The Reversed with it being more extreme in The Reversed. This is where the battle for supremacy between Water and Fire can swing wildly from one to the other.

Unfortunately, even when The Knight of Cups appears Upright in a Relationship Spread he can be a ‘love em and leave em, smooth talKing seducer’. He knows women, has gone out of his way to study their species, has learned how to read them and knows how to bend them to his will. This is a guy who truly understands the power he wields and uses his ‘way with women’ personality traits to get what he wants with scant regard of who he might hurt. Instead of looking for a loving relationship as The Pure Knight of Cups would desire, this version of The Knight is looking to score and could very easily notch up more successes on his bedpost than The Knight of Wands at his very best through dishonesty and manipulation. This is because we generally see The Knight of Wands coming a mile off and unless we are very stupid or deluded, know exactly what he is looking for. To be honest, The Knight of Wands tends to be very upfront about why he is showing an interest in you, and in his Upright Aspect does not set out to mislead or take advantage of you. Not for him the romancing and wooing way to lure you into his net. Not at all for he will call a spade and a spade and makes no apologies for it. Any misinterpretation of the signals he is sending out is your sole deluded responsibility and there is no use crying and ranting and raving about him for treating you in such a manner. The Knight of Wands is generally looking for someone like him, someone who just wants a bit of fun with no strings attached and no commitments. He likes to stay friends with all his women for who knows when he will be next in town again and in need of some female company.

However, let us go back to The Not So Pure Upright Knight of Cups. This version of The Knight is deliberately misleading. He sets out to catch his prey using a false and extremely contrived personality. He calls on all the loving, caring, sensitive, gentle, chivalrous and gallant type of behaviour of The Pure Knight of Cups, but that is where the similarity ends. He uses his romantic and poetic approach, along with his carefully constructed image, dress sense and immaculate looks to magnetically draw the subject, or subjects, of his desire to him. He creates the illusion that he is god’s gift to all women, women who will find it very difficult to resist his charm.

This version of The Knight of Cups can have him juggling several different pseudo relationships all at the one time. He certainly could have a woman in each town and the terrible thing is that each woman would think they are the only one. He likes to keep them all on a string and under his spell until he has decided he has done with them. He likes to be in control of the dumping part for as easy as he finds it to use someone and then dispose of them when he has got what he wanted, he does not take too kindly to it being done to him.

You will find this Knight of Cups hanging out in Wine Bars and Clubs all over the World. Those who watch and observe him refer to him as a Lady’s Man, Womaniser, Rake, a Seducer or Cad. His eyes wander continuously around the room scanning for his next catch and he certainly has no problem drawing them in. Women flock to him like moths to a flame for he is so adorable and so interested in them. He says such lovely things to them and is so complimentary that they positively glow in his presence. Unfortunately this is simply cleverly guided flattery and controlled manipulation. He is a master of seduction and studies closely the behaviour of his prey to deliver exactly what she, or they, wants to hear. He is gentlemanly, courteous and extremely generous.

This is the guy who will send a bottle of champagne over to your table when you are out with friends leaving you all pleasantly surprised and quietly wondering which one at your table he is most drawn to. He will usually continue to sit at the bar, occasionally glancing over and smiling, not singling out any one in particular, but rather keeping you all secretly guessing and hoping. You all agree that he is ‘just gorgeous’ and when one of you whispers ‘oh my god, he is coming over to us’ there is a sudden dive into handbags for lipstick and perfume. He will never just plonk himself down at the table without asking like The Knight of Wands might. This Knight plays by certain rules and will ask in a gentlemanly like manner if he ‘might be granted the pleasure of joining such lovely ladies for a drink?’ 99% of you will readily agree, already shoving up on the seats so that you can be seated beside or directly opposite him. Only 1% of you will find him off putting and transparent. This 1% will socially withdraw from the conversation or behave in an indifferent or almost rude manner towards him, much to the dismay and annoyance of the rest of the table for they do not want him to leave. This blatant rebuff he will find annoying for he does not like to be disliked and will probably decide to single out this person to focus his most charm on in an effort to disarm and win her over. If he fails, so what, for he already has the other 99% eating out of his hand. He will typically ask if they are going on to a club and one way or another manages to extract individual phone numbers or is happy to hand his over to them safe in the knowledge that several of them will either text or phone in the next day or two.

When they do get in touch he will appear delighted and over the moon to hear from each one of them and quickly make a date but likes to keep it private from the others. When he does take the lucky lady out for a meal or a drink he is extremely attentive but will find it hard to keep his eyes on their face for they will be seductively and lustfully roaming over her entire body. He will keep the conversation light so as not to drag out the evening for what he really wants to do is to wrap things up as quickly as possible and get you back to his, or your place, where you can ‘be more relaxed and have a proper talk’. Really there will be very little talk involved except to possibly ask you if you would like red or white wine, for the bedroom door will be wide open and before you know it he will have it closed behind you in a flash. Have no fear that this Upright Knight of Cups would never force himself upon you, absolutely not, that is not his style for he has done the ground work and you will be exactly where you want to be and agreeable to his sexual advances. The Knight of Cups Reversed may not be as polite.

His love-making, or sex, will be long and very intense, but somewhere along the way you will suspect that he has worked hard on his skills and probably exercises them on a regular basis. If not, then you could easily fool yourself into thinking that he is absolutely crazy about you. He will typically want to draw this love-making marathon out until the next morning or even until lunchtime the next day until he eventually tires and falls asleep or you have to go. At this stage, he can seem quite distracted or distant, and when you ask if everything is okay he will just say that he is tired and that he will ring you later that day when he has recovered from his sexual athletics of the previous night and morning. He will then close the door behind you and instantly forget you while you go home exhausted, but on cloud nine. Three or four days later after checking your phone continuously for calls or texts from him and only ever getting his voicemail or the engaged tone when you ring, you will begin to cop on to what has happened and realise that he used you and has no intentions of getting in touch with you. You feel embarrassed now because you excitedly rang your friends to tell them of your date with the gorgeous man and now you have to explain to them how you were duped and fooled. What you don’t know is that he has already being on the phone to one of your friends telling her that it was she he really was attracted to and how he had made a mistake asking you out. He will cunningly play one against the other. Your friend will soon find out for herself and all of you will have learned a valuable lesson. This Knight instantly spotted your willingness, and that you were open to meeting someone. However, he never spelled it out to you that all he was looking for was a one-night stand. If he had being honest and upfront, you more than likely would not have been interested. You see he doesn’t like rejection so he uses falseness and deception to attract women. He flatters them, lies and then misleads them into thinking that he is really interested in them.   This Aspect of The Knight of Cups Upright leaves him thinking only of himself and all his actions are self-serving.

The Love Rival Knight of Cups

The presence of The Knight of Cups in a Relationship Reading can simply imply the presence of a Love Rival who is attracted to the one you are with or the one you have set your hopes on. You may have some stiff competition for your fair maiden’s hand so be prepared to go head to head in battle for her heart, but in a gallant and chivalrous manner, with no dirty tricks or smear campaigns. Let the best man win and believe that what is meant for you will not pass you by.

Careers, Work and Business Knight of Cups

Where Work or Career is concerned there could be good news on the way for you, if you have applied for that dream job or college course. His presence may indicate that it will be offered to you. The offer is bound to make you very happy and is emotionally beneficial.  An offer of a job, promotion or golden opportunity may also come your way out of the blue. If so, take your time to decide what you want to do about it. Think carefully and consult your feelings about this offer. You must be very honest with yourself and not put on rose-tinted glasses or entertain unrealistic notions about the offer. Use your natural perception and intuition to break it down into what the offer really involves. If you can find no fault with it and it is something your hearts sings out for then follow the call from within and go for it. However, if others have to work hard to convince you that this is in your best interests then there is something wrong. Don’t be pushed or forced. You are the best judge in this matter and the bottom line is that whatever is being offered to you, be it on a gold plate or wrapped up in fancy packaging, it must make you happy or it will all be for nothing.

If you have been offered a job or have a choice of Job offers then whichever Reading this Knight turns up in is the one that will bring you the most happiness and will allow you to creatively express yourself. It is bound to be a harmonious working atmosphere with little high competition and a nice homely welcoming feeling. There is an excellent support system and staff is well treated. This job is not highly demanding or too stressful. However, check with surrounding Cards as it may not be the better paid job, so you will have to way up the pros and cons and see where your priorities lie.

Business wise, if you are experiencing challenges or obstacles then a creative approach may be necessary to solve the problem. You will need to employ your imagination and come up with some ingenious ways of moving forward. The Knight of Cups can also indicate that you may be offered a partnership or asked by a friend to go into business with them. Take your time in reaching a decision about this. If business is a bit slow, why not organise an open day and invite all your suppliers and customers to visit your business. Offer free samples and have some nice wine, finger foods and refreshments to hand around. The Knight of Cups can also suggest that your business needs a face-lift, be it the premises, uniforms, website or overall image. This will boost staff morale as well as make you more visible to customers.

Career wise, The Knight of Cups is highly gifted with wonderful creative and imaginative abilities and talents. This makes him often drawn to a career or job where he can freely express himself through art, music, poetry and writing.  A career as a professional dancer is quite popular and of course his love of acting, fantasy and dressing up will find him making a living as an actor or working in movies, television or the theatre industry, whether it is on set or behind it. He also has the ability to make an excellent costume designer and will excel with period or fantasy costume.

This Knight is of The Cups Family and so in his Upright Aspect follows their tradition for being caring, compassionate, sympathetic and understanding. These qualities could very well find him carving out a successful career as a counsellor, psychotherapist or social worker. He also is drawn to nurturing careers such as nursing or a care-worker, being sympathetic and gentle with the elderly and infirm.

We also must look at the fact that he we have a Knight who is both spiritual and psychic. These gifts could take him in two directions. He may seek to develop his spirituality through religion and the clergy or he could run in the direction of the world of psychics, mediums and metaphysics. He will fit in wonderfully in the world of Holistic or Alternative Therapies and is a natural Healer.

The Knight of Cups with his natural flair for style, fashion, and his of fine dressing could find him working successfully in the world of fashion as a designer, model, blogger, fashion show organiser, buyer, window dresser or retailer. He will make an excellent hair dresser too and could easily work his way to the top in this industry. His famous melodramatic outbursts and moods will fit in nicely with the above occupations. In fact they will be expected of him.

He can also use his creative abilities in the kitchen and may be found expressing himself through the culinary arts. He could make a Head Chef or specialise in elaborate cakes which would suitably play to his artistic side and creative side. His explosive emotional outburst will work wonders for him in this industry too.

There is also a place for The Knight of Cups in Politics where he can have a wonderfully successful career as a diplomat, mediator or negotiator. He can also carry over these abilities into big business and financial dealings where his tactful and amiable approach can help him seal deals and contracts where other more aggressive personalities fail. He is often called in during crisis talks where there is unrest or grievances and here he will work with the opposing parties to find a solution. This also can be applied to family mediation where he needs to remain unbiased but sympathetic and understanding to both parties while seeking a harmonious and mutually agreeable solution or way forward.

The Cups are especially drawn to the Water so a career in and around the sea, lake or canals may be attractive such as marine biology, fishing or chartering yachts for pleasure cruises. The Knight of Cups is not terribly sporty as he can often lose his nerve when in competition and his moods plummet when he loses causing him to brood on his failures too intensely. However, he has the ability to become a professional swimmer, yacht racer or oarsman. He could run his own surf school or be a Water-ski instructor.

We must also look at the symbolic nature of The Knight of Cups and when we do, he may be suggesting a career with horses, gentle training in elegant disciplines such as Dressage or Show Horses.

As The Knight of Cups Reverses, Fire and Water become very unbalanced and often sway wildly from one extreme to the other or become totally fixed at one side. When this happens, depending on the swing of balance it can cause several personality disturbances and dysfunctions for This Knight and those involved with him. He becomes extremely unpredictable and his personality can range from simpering, weak, ineffective and grovelling, to cold, calculating, cruel and vindictive. Let us look at the myriad of ways this Reversed Knight of Cups may be affecting your life and emotional wellbeing.

The Knight of Cups Reversed can herald an emotionally upsetting situation or event that is either approaching or retreating.

Emotional Turmoil Knight of Cups Reversed

The Knight of Cups appearing Reversed can be a sign that your emotions are in turmoil. You may be feeling things on a very deep level as above but now those feelings bring pain, upset, stress, uncertainty, doubt and possible paranoia.  Too much emotion may be clouding things, especially the way you perceive or judge situations. You need to pull back and ask yourself if your feelings or emotions are excessive in relations to the situation or issue you are dealing with. Are they even real? With The Reversed Knight of Cups you still have a powerful creative imagination, but this time it may not be working in your best interests. You may be over-exaggerating a situation, making mountains out of mole-hills and letting your imagination run away with you. When Water becomes overly dominant, melodramatics and hysteria often accompany The Knight of Cups Reversed.

The Emotionally Insecure Knight of Cups Reversed

The appearance of this Card could highlight the fact that you are terribly emotionally insecure at present. You may be unhappy with your image, looks, weight and feel ill at ease in your skin. You may be questioning how much you are valued, loved and needed or may be suspicious of any compliments, offers or proposals that come your way thinking that there must be something wrong with them or doubt their validity. You have a low opinion of yourself and therefore believe that others feel the same way about you.  As a result you may appear to shrink in yourself and fade into the background, too timid and reticent to make your presence known or felt. Your self-esteem and self-confidence plummet under this influence and you may feel that you have become invisible and unimportant to the human race around you.

The Scruffy Knight of Cups Reversed

The Knight of Cups Reversed may be trying to tell you that you need to make more of an effort with your appearance. You may have let things slip recently and need to do something about it. Time to re-vamp your wardrobe and stop sitting around in your pyjamas all day. Your hair may need a new style or updating. You need to shake yourself up and take more pride in how you look. Then again you may feel dull and dated because you have little or no money for new clothes, shoes or the hairdressers. You feel dowdy in last year’s or the year before clothes. Now is the time to use your natural creative skills and take a good look at what is hanging in your wardrobe. How could you re-vamp what is hanging in front of you? Could you make a skirt out of a dress? Update an old jacket with new buttons or possibly re-dye your faded jeans or shoes.

The Self-Obsessed and Narcissistic Knight of Cups Reversed

We also have the situation of vanity with The Knight of Cups Reversed. He can become self-obsessed and narcissist. He may be in love with himself more than he is with you and is constantly checking himself in the mirror and asking you if he looks okay. He is overly proud and struts around like a peacock basking in the glory of being gazed upon. He likes to be the centre of attention and believes that everyone is talking about him. The whole world revolves around him and he will be very critical of everyone else, especially their appearance, as no one ever comes up to his standards. He is a taker and has nothing of value to offer or give anyone else. He views every situation as how it will affect him. He puts his needs and feelings ahead of everyone else. He regularly spoils everyone’s night out if he feels he is not getting enough attention, the venue is not glamorous enough or if someone tries to upstage him. He puts himself up high on his own pedestal. This Knight of Cups Reversed can sometimes imply a lack of sophistication and refinement, or pretending to be someone you are not. You may be able to dress him up but you will not be able to take him anywhere. It is not possible to make a silk purse out of a sow’s ear. He may be a fake and phony and more bling than fashionable.

Offers Declined or Withdrawn Knight of Cups Reversed

Don’t be surprised if any help or support you offer to others is declined or rejected when The Knight of Cups turns up Reversed. You can only but try and people do have their reasons, especially pride, for not accepting. There is nothing you can do about this except assure them that you are there if they ever need you. On the other hand, you may be quite taken aback to find that the help and support you expected from family and friends does not materialise or has been withdrawn. This may leave you feeling low and disappointed but you must rise above this and use your creative imagination to find a way to help yourself.

The Creatively Blocked Knight of Cups Reversed

This leads me on to the possibility of creative and psychic blocks when The Knight of Cups appears Reversed. You may not be listening to the voice within or are ignoring your gut feelings about certain matters, preferring to consult your head and not your heart in certain matters. Then again you may not trust your intuition or perception of things. Those involved in the world of spiritualism or metaphysics may find that their work is not up to its usual standard. The messages or energies are just not coming through. This will lead again to self-doubt and despair but you must ride this one out and be confident that it will all settle down again. The biggest block to creative, psychic and spiritual flow of energy is fear. The harder you try, the more you will fail and the more fearful of subsequent failures you will become. You may have been working too hard and trying to force these energies when they should be allowed filter through at their own pace. One never forces a gut-feeling, can plan for or time it. Gut-feelings just happen.

Likewise, under this Knight’s Reversed Aspect you may feel that your normally excellent judge of character fails you. You might discover that the one/s you offered friendship to and confided in breaks your trust and is disloyal. This could leave you shocked and terrible let down or disillusioned.

The Supernatural Obsessed Knight of Cups Reversed

When it comes to the world of psychic side of life, The Knight of Cups Reversed can imply that you are spending too much time dabbling in this area. It is essential when developing your psychic abilities to keep both feet on the ground. If not you are in danger of becoming obsessed with all things of a supernatural nature. You can lose touch with reality and become unbalanced or one-sided. You may check out of the physical world in favour of other realms and dimensions. You hear voices and have visions that may or may not be a figment of your imagination. You begin to see mystical signs in everything and lose interest in everyday activities. What started out as an interest or hobby can become an obsession. You might find that you cannot make a decision yourself without consulting your Tarot Cards or Pendulum. You may be spending too much time and money on psychics and mediums looking for answers externally when the answer lies within.  There is a worry you might be be tempted to dabble with dark magic or ouija boards . There is a danger you might become psychologically and emotionally unstable under this influence. You need to find a healthy balance here as you are a spiritual being living in the physical and not the other way around. For the time being, planet earth is your home and you should endeavour to connect with it as much as possible for stability and balanced health. Moderation is key.

The Emotional Tactics and Strategies Knight of Cups Reversed

When The Knight of Cups is drawn Reversed he may be drawing attention to the deliberate use of emotional tactics or strategies to gain attention or sympathy for your case. You may be making out a situation to be worse than it is. Tears, tantrums, sulking and feigning illness or fainting could be part of the act. You may also be claiming depression and take to the bed. This is seen time and time again in separation or divorce cases where the injured party tries to play on the emotions of the surrounding audience or judge by making out they are the victim of prolonged and sustained emotional abuse.

There is also a growing number of, and I am sorry to say, women who begin a smear campaign against their partner when a marriage breaks down. Police are regularly called to the house every time there is an argument on the basis that she felt threatened or scared. The aim is to build a history of abuse that they can use as a weapon to punish, and for revenge. I hear this all the time from clients. This goal is to be awarded a protection or barring order to get the partner out of the house. Wild stories of terrible emotional and psychological abuse are also leaked out so that they can circulate around family and friends thereby ostracising the other party. The old saying that ‘hell hath no fury as a woman scorned’ is very apt in these cases. I have seen this happen among my own friends and it becomes quite ugly. Every incident, regardless how small and insignificant is magnified and blown out of proportion with the sole purpose to blacken their partner’s character. The communication of incidents to others grows in the telling and is carefully and skilfully manipulated to create a shocking emotional impact. However, more and more of these cases are being thrown out of Court as the stories become more far-fetched and the accused is able to prove their innocence. The terrible thing is there are still a huge number of women, and men too, who suffer terribly at the hands of their partner or spouse. These people have real cases instead of just acting out of spite or sour grapes, but their claims are now viewed with growing suspicion and they must work harder to be believed.

The Exposed, Vulnerable and  Overly Emotional Armour-less Knight of Cups Reversed

When too much Water gains hold, this Knight’s Shiny Suit of Armour dissolves or wears down to a thin varnished veneer that can barely withstand the force of a cotton bud, let alone a sword or dagger. This leaves The Knight extremely vulnerable and because he is of The Cups Suit this means that his heart and emotions are laid bare and exposed to attack. With no protective shield in place to ward off bruising or injury, this Knight is a sitting duck and is bound to get very easily hurt and upset. This does not mean that people are out to get him, not at all, even though he may think that, it is just that he perceives even the slightest breeze on his heart or emotions to be that of a sharp and painful weapon. He becomes hyper-sensitive to everything. He begins to take everything personally and becomes self-absorbed and obsessed with his own feelings; brooding on comments that have been directed towards him, getting instantly upset by any form of criticism or suggestions. He has knee-jerk reacts to situations without feeling them out or thinking them through and creates a stressful environment around him wherever he goes. He causes people to walk on egg shells when dealing with him, necessitating those to carefully examine their words before uttering them for fear he may get upset or take it up the wrong way. Indeed he may be deliberately looking to misinterpret comments for this feeds his sulky mood and the whole world is against me outlook. This creates a situation where people around him refrain from telling him what is going on, or conceal information that he is likely to get upset about. He does not have the decency to keep his moods to himself preferring to let everyone suffer along with him.  He comes across as vulnerable and too sensitive to deal with any form of harshness. He may suffer with his nerves and has a delicate constitution. He needs careful handling and constant protection from upsetting matters. He may not be able to fend for himself.

In this Aspect he can act terribly immature, slamming doors and sulking for days. He is famous for his dark thunderous moods and melodramatic outbursts. Regardless of his age he can resemble a spoiled brat of a child who has been used to getting his own way for too long. There is a good chance that this may be the root of his problem. If he has been molly-coddled and overly protected or pampered during his formative years, then he may not be able to cope with being out in the real world where he has to deal with the ups and downs of real life situations and people, just like everyone else, without a mother or father to sort it out, fix it or make it right for them.   He needs someone to be constantly on hand with a Band-Aid and a kiss and make it better approach.  This version of The Knight of Cups is extremely emotionally insecure but may not realise that is what is causing his unpleasant behaviour. We often see this type of personality among celebrities or the offspring of celebrities who live privileged lives, feel the world revolves around them and believe that their every need should be pampered to.

The Poor Friend Knight of Cups Reversed

The Knight of Cups Reversed often raises the question of how much you can trust your friends. There may be a certain person who is being disloyal, talking about your behind your back or spreading gossip. There may be envy and jealousy behind their behaviour or just a negative personality. They can be very two-faced; all sweetness and light to your face but conniving and duplicitous when you are not around. Be careful who you share your confidences and secrets with when this Knight appears Reversed for he traditionally carried all the gossip, secrets and lies in Medieval Courts and could cause considerable trouble. Gone is the peacemaker and in his place comes the gossip and dabbler in other people’s affairs. He likes to stir things up for his own amusement and pit friend against friend. He can become extremely bitchy and nasty.  If he is confronted he will deny everything and possibly blame another. Then again, it may be you who is not being the friend you should right now. You may be caught up in your own affairs but it is important to make time to offer help to a friend in need. Don’t wait until they have to come on bended knees, be the one to make the first move and stop being so reluctant. There may also be a situation where a falling out between friends or family is dragging on and on. This Reversed Knight may refuse to forgive or apologise. He could carry a grudge for a long time.

The Passive Aggressive Knight of Cups Reversed

A slightly improved version of this Aspect of The Knight of Cups Reversed is the personality who is normally great; friendly, warm, considerate and obliging, that is until something goes wrong or you have to tell them something unpleasant. They then regress back into the above personality and have to be slowly coaxed back with people apologising and saying they didn’t mean what they said or confabulate a whole lie just to back track. It can come as quite a surprise to people when they see this dysfunctional side suddenly appear as it is normally well hidden. This personality is extremely unpredictable and can be released without warning or with the slightest provocation.

The Ineffective, Timid and Simpering Knight of Cups Reversed

The Reversed Knight of Cups can become ineffective and loses his true Knightly sense. Passive and lacking assertiveness, he dithers, cannot make decisions and becomes fearful of life. He finds it impossible to face up to his responsibilities or duties and cannot confront problems or issues head on. Instead he prefers to bury his head in the sand and sweep problems under the carpet pretending they do not really exist or are not his. He may put a spin on troublesome issues by sugar coating them so that they look benign and simplistic. When there is a crisis or something difficult has to be done, he will make himself scarce as he won’t want to get his hands dirty or have to deal with any unpleasantness. Mind you he will have no problem whining and moaning about situations behind the scene, but will stand back and let others do the dirty work for him rather than get stuck in with them. He is a fence sitter and people pleaser preferring to go with the flow rather than stand up for himself or anyone else. He is gullible and easily influenced or impressed. He is a name dropper and can carry airs of grandeur and importance about him because of his connection with those in the know or higher circles. He rarely amounts to anything himself as he can never accomplish that which he sets out to achieve for he has no staying power, tenacity or stamina. He lacks initiative but can get caught up in unrealistic schemes and plans, becoming out of touch with reality and infatuated with fantasies.  The Reversed Knight of Cups in this Aspect is a procrastinator. He can aim to impress by alluding to the book he is going to write or how he is going to make it big in the movies any day now. These are but just fantasies or a Walter Mitty approach to life, and never amount to anything.

He generally does not earn respect by actions or deeds but instead uses flattery, fawning and wheedling to get what he wants or to get ahead in life.

The Con-Man, Swindler and Fraudster Knight of Cups Reversed

In The Knight of Cups Reversed we can find the con-man, the swindler, the thief and fraudster who uses his charm and cunning ways to manipulate situations, and especially people. He comes across as sincere and gentlemanly like, but he is two-faced, dishonest and deceptive. He doesn’t mean a word he says and doesn’t a care a jot about you. If he has singled you out for attention then it is because you have something he wants; something of value, and he will be very crafty and duplicitous in how he goes about getting it. He could lure you into a scam by seducing you with showy presentations and glowing testimonials that play to your emotions. He will reel you in by offering to fulfil your deepest fantasies and desires, but it is all a façade and a front, and more fool you for being duped by his scheme. He can read people like a book by negatively using his natural powers of intuition and perception for self-gain. He knows who he can easily influence and doesn’t waste his time on those who would prove difficult to persuade; the cynical, sceptical, naïve and trusting.

Relationship and Love Reversed

The Commitment Phobic and Flighty Knight of Cups Reversed

When The Knight of Cups appears Reversed in a Relationship Reading then you had better prepare for the departure of love and romance instead of the arrival of it. He can herald the end of a relationship, a broken engagement or the cancelling of a marriage.  This can be for several reasons. If he became too emotional early on in the relationship and then let Fire rush him forward, he may have made some hasty or impulsive move, committing to a person or even proposing but then discovering shortly down the line that he could not follow through. He often confuses Lust with love. The initial Fire of Passion can either blown out or becomes barely a flicker.  He can realise this at the eleventh hour as he returns from fantasy land and the world of rose-tinted glasses. He then cannot go through with any undertakings he has entered into with his partner.  He can suggest broken promises, going back on his word, the withdrawal of emotions and affection and a change of heart. The guy, who wanted it all, suddenly doesn’t want it anymore and may be in a terrible hurry to get away from you and the situation in general. This Reversed Knight of Cups can leave you high and dry, in utter disbelief at his heartless and thoughtless manner. He is the ultimate heart-breaker. He may not even have the decency to tell you to your face. He may or may not leave a letter, you certainly won’t get a phone call, but you might get a text or find out through one of his friends, or a friend of your own who hadn’t the heart to tell you before.  He blows hot and cold and could deliberately manipulate a situation to erupt into a row, thereby giving him the excuse to walk out the door. Consider yourself lucky for you have been saved from making a great mistake.

The Reversed Knight of Cups often lacks the courage to speak up when he is unhappy in a relationship and can let things drift for some time. Even if provoked by his partner into telling her or him if something is wrong will generally deny it as he will not be able to cope with the emotions or tears that follow.  He will appear normal one day and then withdrawn and distant the next which causes a terrible unsettling atmosphere for his partner. He may be waiting for you to do his dirty work.

The Loves Too Much Knight of Cups Reversed

This Reversed Knight of Cups only crime may be that he is guilty of being overly romantic and too idealistic about love. The intensity of his feelings and affection may be cute and wonderful at the beginning of a relationship but can get bloody boring and tedious after a while. His feminine side can become top-heavy as a result and he needs to balance this out with some manly or macho behaviour by bringing in the Fire energies. He is too much and too overpowering needy and slobbering. This can be a terrible turn off but this Reversed Knight may fail to see where the problem lies. This results in him continuing to chase love but never being able to sustain it further than the initial stage. He will be at pains to understand why. To learn more about this Aspect, please read The Section        in the Upright definition. This Card also deals with the area of Co-dependency.

The Seducer, Cad and Womanising Knight of Cups Reversed

This Reversed Knight of Cups is not in love with being in love like his Upright Aspect. Instead he is in love with being in lust. He prefers one-night stands to developing a relationship. The Fire within keeps moving him on and he can build quite a reputation for himself when he tots up his number of scores. Yes, score, that is what he is after and nothing else. He is the artful seducer who uses his charm and magnetic appeal to lure his prey and will manipulate the situation for his own gain. He is after only one thing and will use any means possible to get it. He doesn’t really have to try that hard for he has learned his art or skill well and is the master of seduction. He is a womaniser, a cad and a scoundrel. He may pretend to be gentlemanly like but he is a blackguard who preys on women and their emotions. He knows all the chat up lines and what women like to hear.  This Reversed Knight has absolutely nothing to offer you. His cup is empty even though he may pretend it is full. He has no respectable intentions towards you and regardless of how adorable he may appear you are best giving him a wide berth. Better still, ask around about him and you may find may who will be happy to offer their opinion of him.

The Sex Addict and Abusive Knight of Cups Reversed

He usually gets women without a problem but he does also have a penchant for prostitutes and frequenting brothels where he can indulge his sexual fantasies. He is a sexual deviant who likes to experiment. He could be a sex addict who lives on a diet of porn, group sex or threesomes. He is prepared to try anything, and as his addiction grows he needs to feed it with even wilder abandon. He has little or no respect for women and uses derogatory and degrading language when talking about them. What he doesn’t realise is that he also has no respect for himself or his own body.

In his most negative sense, this is The Reversed Knight who will spike someone’s drink at a party or on a date and take advantage of them once the drug has taken effect. He is underhand and not to be trusted.

The Alcoholic, Drug Addict Knight of Cups Reversed

This Aspect of The Knight of Cups is prone to addictions. He may be drinking excessively or using recreational drugs to heighten his sensitivities and pleasure.  He could be burning the candle at both ends. He is out of control and heading down a slippery path. At the root of this is deep unhappiness and a desire to escape from the harsh realities of life. He may not have the capacity to give or receive love. The cause of this is usually rooted in his past.

The Got No Time For Love Knight of Cups Reversed

There is also a chance that this Knight of Cups Reversed just doesn’t have the time for Love or Relationships. He may be working hard, trying to build a business or concentrating on his career. If he is single then he is affecting no one but himself but if he is in a relationship then his partner will be suffering and there is risk they may drift apart due to lack of intimacy and too much time spent apart. However, due to the Spiritual Nature of this Knight, it could highlight that he has entered the clergy and taken a vow of celibacy. Like-wise this Card can suggest leaving a Religious Order or way of life.

The Unrequited Love, Cheating and Unfaithful Knight of Cups Reversed

The Reversed Knight of Cups can suggest unrequited love, cheating or deception. Something may be going on that you are unaware of.  Look to the Surrounding Spread to see if it provides any corroborating Cards. Open your eyes, for not all is as it seems. If you have met someone recently who seems too good to be true and you are getting niggling doubts about them, there is a good chance you are being very perceptive when this Knight appears Reversed. Trust your gut instincts and observe him carefully. This Aspect of The Knight of Cups is very clever at concealing any knavery he may be up to. He will act angelic, as if butter wouldn’t melt in his mouth. Try not to fall for this ruse.

If his love is unrequited or abused, this Knight can fall into a morose depression and can suffer real heart-break and deep rejection. His capacity to experience emotional hurt can be extreme and he may find it hard to get over an old flame. Hurt, upset and sad, he may sink into a melancholic state and become completely unsociable. His friends may find it hard to bring him back from despair. He will feel the intensity of a relationship break-up in the same manner he would bereavement. Should his partner be unfaithful and cheat it will cut him to the bone and eat his heart out. He will need plenty of time to get over it, and careful handling after, as he will be fearful of letting his heart get involved again. This may cause future problems for him as he is wary of committing to anyone. The Reversed Knight of Cups also has difficulty letting go. He may find it hard to forgive and forget, so can carry a lot of emotional baggage and unhealed wounds which he will project onto others. He could blame a new partner for what an old one did and take out his grievances by doing to them what was done to him. His emotional wounds can take a long time to heal.

The Won’t Take No For An Answer, Harassing and Stalking Knight of Cups Reversed

On the other hand, he may refuse to accept that his romantic advances are not welcome or that his relationship is over.  He may be incensed by this rebuff or totally dismiss it as just playing hard to get. He may become obsessed about the subject of his attention and be determined to wear them down regardless of how much stress he is causing them. This is due to a form of personality disorder and emotional dysfunction. He may become a nuisance by harassing his subject, following or stalking her and constantly ringing or texting. In general, after a show-down or threats of legal action, this Reversed Knight of Cups will reluctantly back off and move on but sometimes the infatuation turns to obsession with the distinct impression that he has laid claim to her, owns her. At this stage it doesn’t really matter if she likes him or not as long as he can continue to indulge in his fantasies.  This twisted Knight’s interest shifts and morphs from supposed love, to a desire to instil fear which may be a form of punishment for rejecting his advances or love. Taken to the extreme, legal intervention or protection may be required, along with a change of telephone number, locks on doors and sometimes a change of address.

The Misogynist Knight of Cups Reversed

In extreme cases, the disturbed Reversed Knight of Cups can develop misogynist traits and begin a hate campaign towards her or women in general. He believes that he is superior, and that no woman should turn him down. Women are there for his pleasure, company and use. When they fail to fall for his charms, he takes it personally instead of what most men do in his case which is, just get over it and move on. He then makes it his business to make them pay. Surrounding Cards would have to be very negative to imply such depths of deviation or personality disorder. One would be very worried indeed if the cards pointed to such behaviour but in general, The Querant would be aware of this threat and is probably visiting you for that reason. There is a huge difference between not wanting to take no for an answer and refusing to take no for an answer.

Non-Traditional or Unconventional Relationship Knight of Cups Reversed

The Knight of Cups Reversed also represents relationships that are non-traditional and perceived to be unconventional. Therefore he can suggest homosexuality as the feminine energies of Water become abundant or in excess. This Knight of Cups Reversed may be about to declare this to the world and put an end to secrecy and hiding the facts from family and friends. He can suggest that now is the time to come out into the open.

Careers and Business Reversed

Offers Falling Through Knight of Cups Reversed

Where Careers and Jobs are concerned, The Reversed Knight of Cups can imply that you will not be offered a position you have applied for or the college place you hoped to secure. Alternatively you may turn an offer down after examining what is involves. The offer may amount to nothing or not be as advertised. It may have been dressed up to lure applicants but nothing of any value can be gained from it. You may be bitterly disappointed with the Outcome as you had been looking forward to availing of it. You may also have had a change of mind or change of heart.

Leaving or Losing a Job Knight of Cups Reversed

This Knight of Cups may also be inferring that you will soon be leaving your job or there may be a possible job loss. If you are leaving your job it is because you are not happy there. It may not fulfil you emotionally or you may not have the opportunity to creatively express yourself or use your natural talents.  The working atmosphere may be hostile and unfriendly. This Reversed Knight of Cups can also be trying to tell you that the work you are doing does not suit you. You are not realising your full potential and there will be little opportunity for you to do so. However, it all depends on what your priorities are. Money may be key in your life now and you may choose a job that does not fulfil you but pays well.

If you have been burning the candle at both ends, drinking heavily or taking drugs, then this is bound to be having a negative impact on your work. You may be missing too many days due to exhaustion, hangovers or just being totally out of it. You won’t be able to get away with this indefinitely so it is time to pull yourself together or prepare to lose your job in the near future.

The Drifter Knight of Cups Reversed

The Knight of Cups Reversed can be a bit of a drifter. He may find it hard to stay in one job for too long or develops a habit of moving on when it becomes difficult or challenging. Instead of dealing with issues in work, or with colleagues  head-on, and in a direct and forthright manner, he prefers to leave, blaming all those left behind as being responsible for his troubles. He will find that this happens in most jobs he secures. There will always be something that upsets him and makes him want to leave. Your work may be uninspiring or lacks imagination.

Lost Business Opportunities and Fraud Knight of Cups Reversed

In business you may miss out on a golden opportunity or you are not invited to take advantage of it. You may have moved too slow and lost your chance. Then again, you may have been duped and conned into getting involved in a scheme that is fraudulent or non-existent. You might have invested in a product or company that has turned out to be a scam. This may have resulted from moving too fast or making impulsive and hasty decisions before properly checking out all the details. You may have been swindled out of money by dishonest practices.

The Unsavoury Business Knight of Cups Reversed

Then again, it may be you who is behind all the scheming and underhand business dealings. Your business may involve Fraudulent Practices, Embezzlement or Extortion. You could also be working in the vice business, porn industry, drug dealing or illegal trafficking of goods.

The No Business Savvy Knight of Cups Reversed

If business is failing, this may be due to a lack of creative imagination on your part. Your business is jaded and could need re-vamping. You may be trying to push a business that holds little appeal to the public.  You are out of touch and have your head in the Clouds. You might need to address your public image and learn how to sell to people on an emotional level. You could be taking a very logical approach or listening to unsound advice from others instead of listening to your intuition and paying heed to gut-feelings.

Then again you may not have the stomach for business. You could realise this too late after entering into dealings with another or investing. You may be too soft and unable to deal assertively with staff, suppliers and clients. Making business decisions may leave you stressed and worried. You might take your work problems home with you and brood or dwell on them.

You might be spending your business profits on wining and dining business clients along with trying to make an impression with flashy car, clothes and premises. You might have a habit of closing down a business at the first sign of trouble instead of having the courage to see it through. You will probably not learn your lesson from this and continue to open and close businesses on a regular basis. Here today and gone tomorrow.

The Lack of Business Support Knight of Cups Reversed

If you have asked for help in relation to your business, be it through friends, family or financial institutions, you might be upset and let down when they refuse you or withdraw their initial offer. You on the other hand may refuse an offer made to you when you realise that it comes with strings attached.

  1. Your page is having serious Technical Difficulties when trying to read up on signs. Throws me to a different section of website. Will not stay on the sign that I’m inquiring about. Very frustrating. Thank you. Hope u get fixed.

    • Hi Cherretta,

      Sorry to hear you are experiencing difficulties. I have just checked the links on the Knight of Cups Page and they all seem to be working. Can you let me know exactly where the issue is as the signs can be linked to from a few different pages. I am going on the presumption it is on the Knight of Cups page as that is where you posted your comment but I may be wrong.

      I haven’t been back over that work in a long time and the site is still a work in progress. I did notice there should be more links to the signs so will address that in the coming week. In the meantime if you get back to me re the above I will have a look and see what might be going on.




      • Hi Cherretta,

        Have had some similar messages about this page, so am forwarding them to WordPress as it must be some technical issue with their ad system. It is working perfectly on my end, so it may be country specific which is why I am not seeing it. Hopefully it will get sorted quickly, but in the meantime I can email you a copy of the Knight of Cups if that would help. You can let me know.

        Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for your patience.




    • I am also having this problem. I love your site but whenever I try to scroll up, the page jumps to the bottom where the advertisement video is playing. It continues to do this even when the advertisement is done playing, and even if I stop the page from loading. I can’t even access the menu. It has happened on almost every page. I am using Chrome. Hope this helps.


      • Hi Erin,

        Have had a few messages about this issue and I am forwarding them to WordPress as it must be something on their end with how they have set up the ads. I am not experiencing this problem when I check it out, so it might be country specific. I will have to wait until WordPress look into it but will keep you all updated about any feedback I get. In the meantime, if you want me to email you a copy of the Knight of Cups, let me know. Sorry for the inconvenience and disturbance to your viewing. Hopefully it will be sorted out quickly.

        By the way, thanks for letting me know as I wouldn’t have known this was going on in the background.




      • Hi,

        Just an update on site issues. Have been on to WordPress and they confirm there is an issue, with other sites reporting similar problems. They are working on it at present and hope to have it resolved as soon as possible. Thank you for your patience.

  2. I am having the same problems. The page constantly jumps back to the advertisement video, even when it’s done playing. I can’t scroll up – I can’t even access the menu, I have to start over by re-entering your home page into the url – I am using Chrome. Hope this helps.


    • Hi,

      Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. I have been finishing off a major post and wasn’t keeping an eye on my messages. Right, there is obviously something happening on the WordPress end of things. I use Chrome myself. I have checked this page and hung out on it for some time, but it is working perfectly for me. I wonder if it is a location thing? Where in the world are you? It may be particular ads they are playing in that region. The ads vary from country to country. What I am going to do is forward your message and the message from the other person to WordPress Support and get them to look into it. I would say there is a glitch of some sort that is causing the problem. For a while I had issues with audio ads playing on my site and no matter how many times I turned them off, they just turned on again. Thankfully, this seems to have been sorted.

      I will get back to you as soon as possible. If you are having ongoing issues, please let me know and I will email you a copy of the Knight of Cups so your viewing won’t be hampered.
