Knight of Cups Tarot Card Upright Meaning

If pages represent children or child-like attitudes, knights are teens or young adults. Did the armor, horse, and cup make you think of one of King Arthur’s knights on the quest for the Holy Grail? They should. The Knight of Cups is an idealist and hopeless romantic who seems to fall in love with people or ideas at the drop of a hat. They often wear their hearts on their sleeves. This is the sort of person who loves to sweep potential paramours off their feet with grand gestures. They may be an artist or involved with the fine arts in some way. This card may indicate a marriage proposal is likely. Like the Page of Cups, this card can also signify a Cancer, Scorpio, or Pisces.
