This could be aged twenty to thirty-something. An ambitious, strong willed, determined man. A well-educated, bright young man. A teacher, a scientist, a researcher, a technician. He could be a policeman, or a military man. There are a couple of other things you can do with Knights to make them more flexible in a reading. You could have them represent journeys, or travel in general. Anything from a short trip to the supermarket to a round-the-world cruise. The Knight of Swords could represent a car journey to take children to school. The driver, the children, and the vehicle itself could be represented by the Knight of Swords. It could also represent a vehicle. In terms of Swords it might be a police car, a military vehicle, anything from a jeep to a battleship. Might be a van or truck from the telephone company. Perhaps a TV company broadcasting van.

The reversed card is essentially a simple vice-versa, though the age-group would remain the same. It could represent a criminal, a burglar, a mugger. Perhaps a dim, or uneducated man. It could still represent a journey, but perhaps a journey that the querent doesn’t really want to make. A tedious journey. In terms of vehicles it could be perhaps a stolen car, a damaged car, perhaps a road accident. In military terms it might represent an enemy tank or truck.

Title: The Prince of the Chariot of the Waters
Element: Air of Water
Zodiac Sign: 20º Libra to 20º Scorpio; October 13 – November 12
Thumbnail Meaning: Indulging in or pursuing egotistical fantasies; poetic abandon and taste; a fierce nature with calm exterior.

This knight cuts an interesting figure. Ideas flow through him endlessly. As a conduit of inspiration, he is sensitive, brooding, imaginative and emotional.

At its best, this card represents intuitive imagination, refined taste and ideal love. At its worst, this card signifies egotism, self-indulgent fantasies, detachment from the world and creative logjam.

Like the Page of Cups, he too is a dreamer, but is much fiercer and far more dangerous than the Page. As the “Air of Water,” this card represents the intellect subordinate to the intuition.

Compare this card to the Queen of Swords, the “Water of Air.” The Queen of Swords represents sagacity, justice and grace; she can refer to a wise leader (of either sex), a straightforward approach or a commitment to the truth. In contrast, the Knight of Cups often represents:

Daydreaming, making idle plans and designs
Being led around by one’s feelings
Feeding the ego at the expense of the soul
Pursuing one’s own vision, “going one’s own way”
A “Hamlet,” prone to excessive brooding, fits of passion and rage
Mood swings

There is much good and bad in this card. Unlike the cool, measured, gracious Queen of Swords, this is a card of intensity and isolation.
