Knight of Swords Tarot Card Description

Pages, Knights, Queens and Kings often describe a person who plays a major role in your life. Physically, the Knight of Swords is said to represent an adult who is under 35 years of age, who has a fair complexion and light hair. This card can also suggest someone who is as bright as a new coin, but as subtle as a sledge hammer.

Upright Meaning

Knights often show the energy of the suite they belong to at its most extreme, and the Knight of Swords is a very extreme individual. Keep an eye out for someone who is intellectually as sharp as a shiny new sword, but who is anything but Machiavellian. The kindest thing you can say about this person is that they are refreshingly honest; the worst is that they are blunt and rude. They certainly do not suffer fools gladly, and they can’t see why everyone doesn’t share their point of view. The Knight of Swords encourages you to use your intellect, but warns against rushing headlong into anything, you need to take the time to think things through properly. It is also important that in your drive for action, you don’t disregard the feelings of other folks. A little diplomacy will serve you better than bucket loads of bluster. You should also be aware that your energy and charisma may mean people follow you, even though they secretly feel you are mistaken. As a result of this tendency, you need to ensure people are telling you what you need to hear, not what they think you want to hear. The Knight of Swords can suggest that a relationship is marred when one partner is aloof or distant. Alternatively, they may decide to rush ahead without consulting the other person. Equally, a new beau may be too demanding, tactless or refuse to take no for an answer. If you are a little meek, the Knight of Swords encourages you to seek your stronger side and stride forward with a confident step.

Reversed Meaning

Getting the balance between when to use your head and when to favour your heart is often tricky. At the moment, you could be undervaluing your emotions. When faced with an overbearing individual it is too easy to give in. Remember, a mosquito may appear to be small and insignificant, but it can make a lion move - don’t be browbeaten. If you are a dominant character, be careful that you don’t inadvertently bully folks - a little tact is far more likely to produce results than press-ganging people into doing your will.
