The Knight of Cups. Are You Trustworthy?
Hi all and welcome to Spirit's blog. Today is Tuesday and I like to draw a Tarot card and use it's guidance for the next week. With that said, the deck I am using today is the Deviant Moon Tarot by Patrick Valenza. This is a 78 card deck, loosely based on the Rider-Waite-Smith deck. I personally enjoy this deck due to it's amazing graphic design, ease of use and slightly different interpretations.
Today's card is the Knight of Cups. The suit of Cups is associated with the element of water. Whether it is slow moving trickles, ripples in a pond or gushing rapids, water is always moving, flowing, and adapting. The element of water is linked with emotions, sensitivity, empathetic natures, and our responsiveness. The darker side of the water element is moodiness, vulnerability, secretiveness and a high level of dependency on others. The most notable traits of the water element is intuition and creativity.
The Knight of Cups is what is known as a court card. This lends an extra elemental influence to the reading. A Knight of any suit is associated with the element of fire. The fire element is enthusiastic, energetic, spontaneous, intense, inspirational and creative. The down side of the fire element is impulsiveness, fierce temperament, and controlling or overly dominant. The most notable traits are generally independence and being fiery or feisty.
The Knight of Cups is graceful, romantic, sensitive and chivalrous. This card could also represent movement or travel, a quest, and connection to the dream world or realm. This could also signal a surprise invitation. The Knight of Cups brings a message of hope, and of an strenuous journey ending in transformation. This card can also signify new ideas brought about by another, and an opportunity. It also comes with a warning that the journey may be difficult due to deception, lies, or scams. It makes us seriously question the motives of others on our path. Are they there to help or hurt?
The colors in this card have meanings as well. The color blue is associated with the planet Jupiter. Jupiter is the ruler of leaderships, business, growth, money and power. The green in this card represents the planet Venus. Venus rules over healing, beauty, growth, abundance, feminine energy. The color yellow represents the Sun. The Sun brings us happiness, joy and success.
So to put it all together, you may embark on a journey, physically or spiritually. This will be a difficult journey, but also a learning experience. You may go through spurts of happiness and points of confusion. The best advice to take from this card is to be like the water. In every way the element of water is never ending, confident and constantly moving. Just remember in your learning adventure, not all are trustworthy. Every person has an energy, trust is a high energy endeavor, so do not be afraid to take things with a grain of salt. Just like the oceans. Blessed be.
