Knight of Cups Upright Draw Meaning

It is often said that while the Knight of Cups is closest to Prince Charming, the energy from the card is mostly feminine. Rather than recklessness, this knight is in touch with their intuition and emotions. That charm makes the knight a romantic, poetic, yet energetic individual who knows how to draw the map of their life and travel in the right direction, no matter the missteps that they make.

For this reason, the Knight of Cups doesn’t always have to be a person who appears in your life. The Knight of Cups could reside inside you, be a friend, family member, mentor, or even something as amorphous as a sign along the road. Usually, this person or event comes bearing a message that invites you to do something new. Once you accept this invitation, you will find the power needed to transcend life’s hurdles within you.

Just beware of getting too caught up in fantasy. While these dreams are exciting, you won’t get anywhere just thinking about how grand life could be. Explore your passions. Revel in your hobbies. Always take the steps needed to get you closer to your goals.

It may be in the form of inheritance or an upswing in stocks, but either way, nothing is as bad as you might it is.
