Knight of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
All the Knights bring movement and represent an event of some description. Some people view the Knights as being representative of adolescence, although in readings I find it’s easier to focus upon the Pages as minors, then Kings and Queens as mature adults.
Traditionally, the Knight of Cups represented a marriage proposal and this may be so in the right context when combined with the right cards, but it can also indicate various offers of a romantic nature. However, I find that this card brings in all types of different offers and proposals that have an emotional impact, so is not just limited to affairs of the heart.
For those that read the Courts as facets of character, the Knight of Cups is dreamy and romantic, although somewhat idealistic so not always very realistic.
