Multiple Knights in a Tarot Reading

Ever wondered what is the significance of receiving multiple Knights in your Tarot card reading? Why are you getting two, three, or four Knights in your Tarot spread? Today, I am going to explain what pulling all of these Knights mean! 

Is there any special significance to receiving two, three, even four Knights in your Tarot card reading.jpeg

Knights usually symbolize young men or individuals in their late teens to early thirties. I read a reoccurrence of Knights as representing situations which you will be involved in that will be typical of a Knight. 

With the above interpretation, my own experiences and historical resources from the 19th century in mind, I am going to explain the significance behind receiving two, three and four Knights in a Tarot reading. 

Four Knights in a Tarot Reading Meaning

As four Knights represent young men (or women for some people), then four Knight can predict a situation which you will be in with lots of Knights around you. Therefore, I often interpret four Knights quite negatively as it can sometimes symbolize time spent in prison. 

Clearly, when applied to a love reading, then the above interpretation can mean that the four Knights in your Tarot reading means that you or your lover may be incarcerated; this will have an impact on your relationship. Alternatively, it can predict that you will begin a relationship with someone in prison. 

If four Knights appear in your business or career reading, the interpretation is not that bad. In career focused reading, four Knights mean that you will work with prisons, psychologists, criminologist or local authorities as part of your work. The exception, however, is if you’re involved in any illegal activity; if this is the case watch out! 

Three Knights in a Tarot Reading Meaning

According to A.E. Waite, the creator of the Rider Waite Smith Tarot deck, historically, three Knights in a Tarot card reading predicts ‘lively debate’. Personally I read this to mean that three Knights in a Tarot card reading symbolizes debate and discussions, but not necessarily arguments. 

In love readings, three Knights in close proximity can mean that you and your partner are well-matched on an intellectual level. You have the same mentality, and can disagree without hostility. Your relationship is a solid one due to your mutual interests and love of debate. 

For business and career readings, I would take three Knights in your reading as representative of the fact that you will have to defend your viewpoints, expertise and systems for doing things in your industry. You will have to stand by your convictions with regards to your career. 

Two Knights in a Tarot Reading Meaning 

I have personally found that two Knights in a reading usually means that you will bump into individuals you have not seen in a long time. While Pages can represent friends you have only recently met, Knights are more indicative of childhood friends. 

In relationship Tarot readings, two Knights can mean that you and your lover will meet each other’s long time friends. If your romance is serious and you have already become acquainted with each other’s friends, then the two Knights simply represent outsiders (who are old friends) who have some level of impact on your relationship. 

Finally, in business and work related readings, I am inclined to say that two Knights in your Tarot reading means that you will begin to work with people from your past. For example, you might hire an old friend, or one may start a position at your current place of employment. 

That’s all for what it means when you get four, three or two Knights in your Tarot card reading!
