KNIGHT OF SWORDS in The RIDER WAITE Deck of Tarot Cards
Rushing, risk-taking, lack of thought, speed, impulsive, headstrong.
A Knight on a white horse with a drawn sword is charging through the desert at great speed.
This card often symbolises someone who is rushing headlong into something without giving it any real thought.
The person is often impulsive, headstrong and full of fantastic ideas. They are capable and fearless and can be an impulsive risk taker.
They can be a great communicator but they can also be tactless, sarcastic, blunt and rude. A person can have all the qualities of an Air person, i.e. quick witted, intelligent, sharp brain, great ideas, great communicator and spontaneous.
They can also be rash and impulsive and lack empathy with other people. The Knight is someone who is likely to be quite immature and convinced of their own superiority.
He or she can be a strong ally and fight your corner for you, while it suits them. They can be very fickle and whimsical and you should be careful of placing long term trust in them.
This indicates sudden events, where someone needs to take charge quickly, so that the whole thing does not end up in complete chaos. If you are considering delegating a project, be careful of the person you choose to take on the role.
With abundant blessings.
