If you’ve drawn the Knight in any suit, it often depicts a person in your life. However, it can also be indicative that these qualities are present in you, and should be attended to.
In the suit of Swords, the Knight represents being headstrong and determined to succeed. What amazing drive! Depending on placement, this card can mean you or someone in your life is rushing forth with passion about an idea of project (much as the imagery suggests). This vigour can definitely be advantageous, but at other times needs to be checked – especially if the card is reversed.
In positive terms, the Knight can take you forward through difficult waters, and out into a better place. I often picture the Knight in Sleeping Beauty – chopping through the thorny underbrush and fighting off the dragon to get to what he wants. Someone may be coming to your aid, a literal “Knight in shining armour.” Perhaps YOU yourself may be the Knight you need. Quick thinking and decisive action will likely be needed on this path, and may be helpful at this precise moment. During times that require a quick choice – your gut intuition is your friend. What feels right?
The horse seems less keen about the Knight’s plan, so this card can also indicate you are pulling or being pulled into a plan that is not to your liking or best interests. You may need to step forward and say “no” if you are being dragged into something. Or, you may want to check in with others around you if you are the one holding the reigns.
Another cautionary message with this card is the possible disregard for the consequences of one’s actions. Are you pursuing something without thinking of the casualties along the way? Is there destruction or chaos in your wake? Pause, turn around and check for damage. You may need to do some clean up!
If you draw this card in a love spread, get ready for some passion! Yet also be prepared for your lover to potentially be firey and quick tempered. He (or she) often represents a Gemini. Be prepared to go deep quickly with this one! This is likely a partner who will fight strongly for your affection, and defend your honour.
