Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups represents the passionate heart – mastery of the emotional desires which bring out the “lover” in all of us through the expressions and experience of deeply emotional passions.  Relationships with Karmic ties.  You may be offered an interesting invitation, which will result in an emotional experience that will bring high energy and lift you to an exhilarating state as new situations seem to come from nowhere.  Your decisions will be made without much thought and you will experience the feeling of “inner” direction – the experience of warmth, friendliness, love and the need to share these qualities with everyone.  There will be good will and a partnership in which good feelings will prevail.

Direct your imagination into the world – true imagination feeds on “action.” If you do nothing with your dreams – they will remain vague and unrelated to the rest of your life.  Your imagination can lead you to an awareness of the underlying spiritual truth.  Maintain your emotional equilibrium – make constant adjustments – flow with the direction being presented and retain your “inner” control.  Take advantage of your emotional energies – be open and trust yourself.  Explore your deep feelings and you will experience the ecstasy of living.

“Fantasy” – excites, but it lacks any real meaning as you deny your basic commitment to the world and your imagination produces nothing.  “Passiveness” can be a means of denying the temptations and desires that are disturbing your peace.  The “lover” who does not wish to commit to anything – who is attractive yet always remains passive and withdrawn.  Follow a genuine vision, rather than being “pulled” by outside commitments, responsibility or desire – then you can go very deeply into yourself and turn your energy into an exploration of your own inner world.

Emotional, sensitive, creative, dedicated, motivated, sensual, tender – a loving person ruled by the drive for expansion.  Close ties with family and friends – a defender of heart and honor.  The heart of the group, a leader or volunteer.  Art.  Emotional change agent – nurturing, emotional learning and growth.  The younger lover of an older partner or someone taken under the wing of an emotional advisor.  Innocence maturing – a student of romance.  Sacrificing for someone or something else.

Questions to Answer:

  1. What dream, vision, ideal or love are you following?
  2. Who is inviting you on a journey of emotional significance?

    Natalia, spirit talks with us through any means that we are listening to. Tell him you love and miss him and that his continued sharing is special to you – then give him a big mental hug! Be aware of the things around you – he may start showing up in different ways. My mom’s mother use to come sit by her bed sometimes in the middle of the night and they would talk for hours. Trust your higher spirit to guide you with your beautiful daughter … Diana

    My husband continually shows me this card the past couple days when I ask him for a message. Repeatedly I cut the deck at this card. I even asked via an online tarot app and got the same one. It is as if it’s him romancing me from the other side. Reminding me that he loves me. He died unexpectedly on Oct 31 2020. Reconnecting with him after his death, is keeping me going… especially with raising our 19 month old daughter.

    Wow Erin. I know it’s 3 almost 4 years later that I am seeing this but my heart truly go out to you. That is beautiful that your love is still with you and that you took comfort in that sign. I know your love for him will always be there but I hope that you have even more comfort and healing today. Blessed Be.

    I recently lost my love of my life to a tragic accident in June and i was 3 months pregnant at the time. I feel as though he connects with me through these cards at times when I need to hear exactly what they are telling me. This one in particular really hit home because I had a hard day it being 4 months since we lost him and I cannot express my joy when laying in bed and a toy started randomly going off and when I asked if it was him trying to contact me it continued to go off several times. Finally!! A sign!! Came out of nowhere and perfect timing!! Then I read the energy card of the day but not before I asked him to give me something to help me thru and I believe whole heartily this is his message to me for the day 🙂 so grateful for this app!!!
