KNIGHT OF CUPS in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Sensitive, romantic, emotional, loving, caring, sensitive.
The Knight can represent a young adult or a person who is immature for their age. He/she is a dreamy, imaginative, sensitive, emotional, probably quite romantic person.
He/she is loving, caring, generous and will help anyone, often to their own detriment.
On the negative side, they can be overly emotional and hypersensitive, as well as suffering from apathy.
As they have deep emotions and feelings themselves, they will often be very sensitive to the feelings of others and not want to hurt their feelings. This can lead to them being unable to say No, when people ask for help.
It can represent a male or a female, although the figure in the card looks more male than female.
The Knight of Cups is great for wonderful feelings and dreams, however they may struggle motivating themselves or being able to put their plans into action.
The wings are the symbol of Mercury, the Winged Messenger, so this card can be bringing a message.
It can be a person offering love, friendship or support,
Sometimes the Knight of Cups may come up in reading, when there has previously been a King or Queen of Cups and that may be telling you that the cards are still talking about that previous person.
With abundant blessings.
