The main meanings of The Knight of Cups are romance, faithfulness and Prince Charming. If you’re looking for love, you’re in luck! Be prepared to be swept off your feet!
The Knight of Cups is a romantic character who cares about you and your feelings. He brings you flowers, takes you on dates and shows how much he cares. If you’re single, then the Knight sends you the message to not worry; he’s on his way.
If you’re attached, this card can serve as reassurance that your partner only has eyes for you. If they’re being a little distant recently then The Knight of Cups can mean that they are going to start showing you more love and attention.
Sometimes, the Court can represent you as an individual. Perhaps you are the one who is loyal and committed. You always try to see the best in other people. In a positive reading, this trait obviously serves you well but in a negative reading, it can mean that you’re willing to overlook things for the sake of a content life.
Although the Knight of Cups is generally positive, there will be times when it signals an idealised version whatever it is you wish to achieve. You (or the Knight of Cups character) will be going about life with rose-tinted glasses on. If this is the case, then you need to be more realistic about your goals.
