Knight of Cups Upright Meaning

by MoMoTarot

A dilemma, deciding between feelings and actions.

Card Details:

Unlike the swift riding stance of the Knight of the Token or the Knight of the Sword, the Knight of Cups' white horse is gentlemanly, traveling gracefully, much like his master. The Knight of Cups holds the chalice flat, and his gaze is somewhat dreamy as he gazes deeply into the chalice. His clothes have a red fish motif on them, the fish symbolizing imagination, creativity, and spirituality, and the red color points to the knight's zeal. His helmet and shoes have wing motifs on them, symbolizing imagination. This man and horse are thus heading towards the river.

His horse is much more negative than the sceptered knight's horse. Due to his imagination, he has now slowed down and needs to "feel" a form and understand his emotions. The wings on his helmet and boots symbolize his intuition and imagination, which are enough to make him surpass any obstacle that may confront him.

His attention is divided between the goal in front of him and the cup in his hand. On one side was the need to act, on the other the call to remain still. One path would lead him to become King of the Scepter, the other to become King of the Cup. Knighting also means a period of deciding whether to wait or act, to let things develop fully or to find new opportunities. In order to discover fulfillment, perhaps now is the time to go with the heart (symbolized by the river).

The Holy Grail symbolizes worldly emotional communication, and the Knight of the Grail moving forward with the Grail signifies that he has pursued earthly feelings as well as keeping those dreams. It further represents the pursuit of the ideal relationship of the heart and is enjoying a sweet and romantic love affair. This card represents a person who is sincere in his heart and cherishes his feelings, and he has the charm to make the other person happy.
