The Knight of Swords Tarot Card

Knight of Swords Tarot card


Determination, will, perhaps anger. Leading a life and death charge into harms way. This Knight believes he is right. He is not prepared to accept less than victory. Although he is equipped with outstanding intelligence and wit, he must be on guard against impetuousness and impatience, which are his weaknesses. He craves action, and may be prone to start fights for the excitement of it. He is brave, but he can also be a bully. At his best, he may be the hero of the battle. At his worst, he may be the cause of the war. Upright, this warrior is hard to stop and is likely to win the victory.


When reversed, the Knight of Swords still strives for victory. But in this aspect, a dark side presents itself. Bravery may replaced by treachery, intelligence supplanted by cunning. The reversed knight may connive and backstab to have his way, or his revenge. The reversal could also indicate fatigue or futility, a letdown following his explosive charge. Depending on the context of the reading, this card reversed may also be interpreted as impending troubles with air travel.


Element: Air

The Knights relate to energy, travel, adventure, aggression and goals
