OAT #5
All about the balance of logic and emotions. A dreamer and visionary, The Knight of Cups (in reverse), is asking you to look deeply at your relationships and discern truth from fiction / fantasy from reality (yours of course), and be sure all involved have one another’s best interests at heart.

This is the 5th installment of an ongoing, weekly series we’re trying out here on the 1HP site called Oliver’s AfterThoughts. Each Friday morning I post a card from the Afterthoughts tarot deck by Corrine Kenner. These tarot pulls consist of a single card garnered by means of my attracting one infused with the energy of the Oliver collective, intended as its prediction of what to expect for the weekend / week ahead.

The Kenner Afterthoughts deck is based upon the concept of “what happened next?” in the scope of a classic tarot reading. In tarot, the cards in the spread show what is occurring. If you continue to pull cards thereafter you’ll unveil the history leading up to the shown events. But, then what? What can you, the conscious, 1HP creator expect moving forward? What is about to unfold? And, thus… After Tarot!

Let’s begin.

Knight of Cups (in reverse)

 Knight of Cups

When a Knight shows up in a tarot reading he suggests a new quest or adventure is about to begin (or possibly end if in reverse), or a rescue is on its way. Most stories about knights are actually stories about transformation. In most renditions, a knight is on a quest for a mystical object, like the Holy Grail. As he pursues his mission, he encounters and overcomes a series of obstacles which have all been deliberately contrived to test and challenge him.

Card Description (quoted from book):
The Knight of Cups drinks from a golden chalice. He and his white horse have stopped to rest near a crystal-clear stream, fed by a rushing waterfall. He rides gracefully and quietly, and his winged helmet symbolized the misty clouds of his imagination. Elementally, the Knights of Cups embodies the steamy combination of fire and water Astrologically, the Knights of Cups represents the mutable water sign of Pisces.

Key Symbols:

  • In touch with intuition and emotions.
  • sensitive and introspective
  • Charming and attractive to all sexes.
  • He is in love with love, itself.
  • Looks to emotions to form a life map.
  • Will always go with what his heart tells him, whether logical or not.
  • A strong need to share the qualities of warmth, friendship and love.
  • Is most often a messenger, an invitation, or an offer of high emotional benefit
    Be Alert
    In this scenario, the drink from the challis is going straight to the Knight of Cups’ head, and if he doesn’t hold on he is going to fall off that white horse of his. The Knight’s cup runneth over with TOO much emotion and that person, situation, or event isn’t what you thought it was after the bubbles from the all those spirits have popped. Things are not what they seem in the area of love.
