Knight of Swords Upright Draw Meaning

Humans are largely action-oriented beings that, when focused on an idea, will often do whatever it takes to see it come to fruition. That is the tragic flaw of the Knight of Swords. Driven by the desire to fulfill their dream, they have failed to see how their actions will indeed pan out. Though the Knight of Swords is a figure capable of using their intelligence, they have chosen to ignore the risks or dangers.

You, too, have chosen to embark on a new journey that may not have been planned out as thoroughly as you should have. Though you have a great ambition to succeed, rushing into things and cutting corners will result in a shoddy mess. Avoid hastily piecing together a foundation, lest it will fall when the true test comes. And don’t push others away when you grow frustrated by the lack of progress because they can help you when trouble rears its head.

Since you have well-developed skills, now is the time to merge them with your intelligence. Have conversations with other people. Bounce ideas off of them. In the end, you can use that inspiration as a guiding light. Action is needed, as long as you have thought through the consequences.

Knight of Swords In Love and Relationships

Good news! Knights know how to sweep people off their feet, and the Knight of Swords is no different. Get dressed up to hit the town. Tonight is your night to find the knight of your dreams—whomever that special person is for you. Even those in committed relationships will find themselves met with a deeper and more satisfying love.

Love letters, loving communication, actions, and words of love are all ways you can bring this Knight’s energy into your life. This Knight also likes to spice things up in the bedroom; why not share fantasies and maybe even try something new, with consent, of course.

Knight of Swords In Career And Finances

The Knight of Swords is actually a fair omen in terms of looking for work. The job that you’ve been hoping for may surprise you with a very decent offer. For those already employed, you can expect things to get busier—in a fulfilling sense. You will find happiness in these new accomplishments and be able to add something special to the workplace.

Financially speaking, the Knight of Swords means you may also be receiving some money you weren’t expecting. Don’t be obnoxious and spend it all in one shot. Share the wealth a little, then tuck the rest away because the return on those investments will be astounding.

Knight of Swords Reverse Draw Meaning

There are a couple of meanings associated with the Knight of Swords reversed. First, it has to do with character. The reversed version of this Minor Arcana card is one of impatience, impulsiveness, and selfish energy. In fact, an individual like the Knight of Swords reversed is oftentimes so scatterbrained that they pull others down with them. If you encounter this kind of person, be careful not to get spellbound by their bubbly energy, as this will suck you in and send you spiraling.

Actually, there is no better time than now to go it alone. You are being called to experience life independently for mature growth. Search for freedom and independence away from home. Make mistakes. Be held accountable.

Lastly, if you have become a maelstrom of all work and no play, you need to settle down. The Knight of Swords reversed shows that you are approaching burnout. Don’t get involved in anything else right now, as the wheels are spinning too rapidly and may fly off, leaving you with a mess to clean up and no energy to do it. Sort out those priorities.

Don’t say I love you on the first date. Don’t rush into things too quickly. Enjoy the newness and your firsts at a natural pace.

Knight of Swords Reverse Draw Career and Finances

Be careful who you back at work vocally. It’s not to say you should stay silent in the face of wrongdoing but you never know people’s true intentions. Don’t be anyone’s scapegoat.
