Reversed Knight of Cups

Thread originally posted on the Aeclectic Tarot Forum on 19 Dec 2003, and now archived in the Forum Library.



Siwan  19 Dec 2003 
I keep getting him in my readings?

He first appeared when I did a reading before I went out on a date.

The Knight of Cups reversed and also the Devil fell out.

I went on the date which was exactly what the cards fore-warned me about. So I took it to mean that the Knight of Cups reversed was telling me about the very dishonest person I was on a date with. Very easy to spot.

My confusion is that I have not pursued this person any further so why in readings I've done myself and readings done by others does the Knight of Cups still appear?

I am so new to tarot that I can only read enough to understand that this card was definitly a fore - warning, but the continual appearance of this card has baffled me!

Siwan: Perhaps the message here is "why were you attracted to this person". Why didn't you spot his dishonesty straight away? (I take it is was a "he"?) Have you got yourself involved sometimes with other people who are similar to him?

Is the card trying to tell you something not about someone else, but about yourself? Warning you about a certain fragility that you may have? And asking you to work on it? 


ros  19 Dec 2003 
I agree.
Also I think this card may be telling you that you should keep control of your emotions. Does this person controll your emotions some how? With the Devil also you may chain yourself to the emotion that you feel when you think of him.
Just some ideas.

Hi Siwan,
Even though you have not contacted this bad date have they tried to contact you?
Sometimes the Knight of Cups rx is warning you of someone who might have a possesive personality.
They're clingy and need constant reasurance.
But they're very self serving, not really ever thinking of you.
This can make you even on a first meeting feel trapped.
At their worst they can be real control freaks.

Has the Knight of Cups come up rx every time? 


Siwan  19 Dec 2003 
Hell everyone and thank you for replying.

Hi Diana, I went on the date to see whether the cards were going to be right about this person. I did have a bad feeling about him but being the curious type I decided to go on the date anyway.

After returning from the date, the first thing I said was that the cards had been right as well as my own intuition, however I was glad that I went because otherwise I would never have known.

The truth is that since the date I haven't once thought of this person and even when we parted for the night I knew that I wasn't going to see him again but that didn't bother me.

Hi ros, I can be emotional but I am definitly in control of them. This person has had no real effect on my life. Perhaps the Knight of Cups is showing as a future warning? To keep away from people like this? This person was a very dishonest person which did show a bit to begin with but on the actual date it was impossible for them to hide it.

Hi Lark, I would say that 9 times out of ten this card appears for me. Only once has it appeared upright. Maybe I am looking at this from the wrong angle and that this card has nothing to do with my date!

Any ideas you can give me will be greatly appreciated!!

I find when I get this card for myself it's usually talking about rejection.
I'm rejecting something because I feel it's not good enough.
Sometimes that's because it truly isn't good enough. (like that guy)
Or just because I'm being to picky about something.
Or I'm rejecting something because I think it's TOO good for me.
And then I look at any self esteem issues that may be my problem but I'm denying them.
Does this make any sense?

I think this card appearing so often is a warning to change an aspect of yourself. Your admitting that the cards fore warned you as well as your intuition that going out with this person was not right but you still went to see what would happen and if the cards were correct is a bit startling. This experience ended quite benignly but the next time might not. As some one mentioned previously this person might still be calling and annoying you etc. I think you might need to look at why you ignored the cards and your intuition. 


Inana  21 Dec 2003 
Are you afraid about acting guided by your emotions, about showing your feelings to the others?
Forget about that guy, if you keep getting the card it has to do with something more deep inside you.

Knight of cups can be about dreaming too much and having irrealistic views,being closed in a dreamworld and unconected from the world. Or just the inverse: closing yourself to any kind of romanticism and idealism. Both ways, the result is the same: feeling you are not in control of your emotions and some kind of isolation and sadness.
Other things to consider with the knight of cups, more if paired with the devil: dependance and excesses issues with stuff that gives pleasure but is bad for you.

Can any of this apply to you? 


DeLani  22 Dec 2003 
I would say that I agree with Diana and Lark. I do think it is coming up for you because there is some issue about love/romance/relationships and who you are attracted to. On the one hand, could be you are attracted to the wrong type - self-centered, players, etc. Or, could be that when a really good man comes along, you may reject him for whatever reason.
Perhaps your ideas/feelings about what a lover should be, or what a relationship is supposed to be, may be in need of change. That is what I would tell a client if they got this card (esp. over and over).
Good luck! 


Siwan  24 Dec 2003 
Thank you everyone for your input.
I think that Inana is probably right. I am a dreamer and tend to have ideas that don't really apply to this world.

A lot of people tell me that I tend to have 'wild' dreams.

The best thing I think I can do is just wait and see, maybe the cards purpose has not been fulfilled yet and could be warning me to be careful with my dreams? To not let them rule my life which at present do.

On the pragmatic side, how many spreads have you been doing for yourself? Outside of a daily card, it's not a good thing to do spread after spread after spread. Unless you're doing it to learn the cards (in which case what comes up is academic and should be viewed as such), keep readings for yourself, serious readings, down to once a week--or just when you feel you need an answer to an important question.

9 out of 10 times would indicate to me that you're overdosing on spreads. And I rather think that the our reversed Knight of Cups may be trying to tell you that. Knight is the apprentice (you learning the cards), cups is psychic abilities. Message, "Cut it out!" Take a rest, take a break, you've drained the psychic cup dry.

Devil as well = addiction to doing readings. Very common. It's hard to put the cards down once you're into them. But there comes a point where there's really nothing new the cards can tell you. A signal of this is usually a card that repeats, over and over again, informing you that the deck needs a few days off to refresh itself....and you need to stop investagating your life for a bit. 


Siwan  31 Dec 2003 
Wow thanks for that thirteen!
I suppose being very new to the art I am overdosing a bit!

Maybe that would be a good New Year's Resolution!

Happy New Year everyone!
Blwyddyn Newydd Dda pawb!

This is excellent advice...... Should be flagged for the Beginner.... I soooooo remember OD'ing on throwing cards!! :(
