Here we have the archetypal Knight-in-shining-armor, a romantic figure on his elegant steed. Pure romance.
It is mid-April, and we are in the midst of an ice storm. It is messy and very un-springlike out there. I woke up in a melancholy state, and then I pulled this card. This Knight was an unexpected and pretty sight. He elevated my morning, from slush and sleet to something refined and noble.

He invites me to wear my heart on my sleeve, to FEEL, to speak words of love, to get swept up in romance, to reach out to loved ones with an open and tender heart.
Take a look at this figure. Look at his beautiful posture, the tilt of his chin, the shine of his flawless armor. He is the bright dream of love. We are in the world of fairy tales, epic quests, Knights of the Round Table, the Holy Grail.
I welcome the appearance of this Knight, but the practical or perhaps wary side of myself is aware that he is in love with LOVE, he is sentimental and romantic, he is moody and changeable. When he offers you his heart, he really means it, but will he still feel that way tomorrow? He is a dreamer, and may enjoy getting lost in fantasy.
Here’s what I posted for my Today’s Tarot Message on Facebook:
The archetypal Knight in Shining Armour. This could be someone riding into your life, making an offer of romance. Or, if this is YOU, it is time to extend an offer of love or reconciliation to someone you care about. Be daring and bold, and act authentically from the heart. Be true, don’t swing towards sentimentality or fickleness. Wear your heart on your sleeve today.
Being the suit of Cups, we are in the world of the heart, love, emotion, intuition, relationships, healing and flow.
Being a Knight, we have high energy, action, the ability to focus on one thing and get it done, movement, immaturity, a desire to serve, idealism.
So what might the Knight of Cups represent in regards to a specific topic?
