Danse Macabre Knight of Cups

Knight of Cups

You see a purple heart floating by in a stream. You catch it and hold it to your own heart.


The arrival of someone or something. An invitation or request may be received. An appeal or proposal may be made on behalf of someone else through a third party. He wants something so strongly that he is blind to the possibility of defeat. He may leave his residence to advance towards his goals.

The knight is looking to his emotions to provide a map. He is the person who is ruled by his heart rather than his head. When faced with a decision, he will always go with what his heart tells him, whether it is logical or not.

The Knight of Cups represents the undertaking of a creative adventure. He is charming and attractive to others, regardless of their sex, while still expressing the romantic, poetic view of life in his unique way. He may be in love with love itself.

The Wise tell us to seek the middle path of balance and moderation. Knights do not heed this, and want to do things all the way, not half-way. They push the energy of their suit as far as it will go, maybe farther.
