The qualities and faults of the Knight of Cups
- One of the flaws of the Tarot deck knight may be that he tends to be a bit narcissistic at times.
- A second flaw may be that at times he may tend to rely on his emotions to guide him through life.
In any case it's a loved one who knows how to act with kindness. But he's not very inclined to use his mind or the analytical side of his brain. When he has to make a decision, he'll always listen to his heart. He will not be inclined to use reasoning or logic.
So he will find it easier to use the law of the universe for example, or to listen to his intuition. This will also mean that he will be able to make decisions on impulse. One thing is sure, he is not a person who knows how to make plans. He doesn't like to think for a long time before embarking on a project for example.
For you, in a draw, the knightTarot deck cut may indicate that you're gonna receive a news (as with the jack of clubs), or that a person is about to arrive in your life and it will have something to do with the emotional sphere.
The Tarot Card Cutter may also indicate that you may be opening yourself up to emotional experiences. In any case, you will develop energy in this area. This will allow you to move forward in life, in your projects...
The advantages of the Knight of Cups
The right-side cutting jumper will also be able to indicate that you are now in connection with your intuition or your Higher Being and that through this you will finally be able to realize some of your dreams or in any case you will understand how to overcome the obstacles you are currently encountering.
The Cutting Jumper represents the creative side of everyone. He is the logical continuation of the cup jack and therefore extends his action especially in the creative side of the implementation of projects.
The difference between the two Tarot cards is that the Cutter Jack is at the beginning of his action, of his project, and he is setting up the events and the elements to shape it, whereas the Cutter Jumper, already has the elements present in him to put all this in place and he is starting to apply them.
This means that you are already more advanced and that you will start to create your project. You are now able to project what you have created or imagined and make it take shape. So the cut knight, like all knights, and a action card. So you go into action and implement the dreams and projects imagined by the valet.
The romantic aspect...
The right-side Knight of Cupsr blade can also work as a tip or warning so that you can listen to your intuition and romantic side but keep the middle way.
Indeed, this is one of the biggest problems of the cut knight and it is necessary to find a balance because otherwise it can become totally unrealistic and no longer be able to connect with the real world. In this case, he will take his imagination for the real world.
On the other hand, the Knight of Cups is an invitation to explore all the emotions and beautiful things that are inside you. He asks you to live your passions and implement your greatest ideas.
So the cut knight may ask you to devote yourself to a passion and maybe even go beyond and live from it for example. What is important with the Tarot cut knight is that you don't have to go fast to do things. The most important thing is rather to really be in touch with your inner self and to find a balance between imagination, implementation of ideas and finally action so that you can reach your goals.

The Tarot deck knight card is drawn backwards:
When the knightof the Tarot Cup is drawn backwards, it will represent a emotionally immature person just like the jack of cups. In this case, there will be no balance in his emotions which he will then fall prey to. He will tend to do things on impulse. He may be nonchalant, jealous, angry, or even temperamental. In extreme cases, the Knight of Cups will be unable to manage his emotions.
The Cup Rider may also show a part of you, or certain aspects of you that you find hard to see or don't want to see. It may be the message that you need to look at the way you present yourself to the world or how you act... What are your motivations, the basis of your actions...
