They are sitting completely still, drawing you in. The Knight of Cups will seduce you toward him. Even if he is pursuing you, it will feel magnetic.

Like all of the court cards, the Knight of Cups tarot card usually represents an actual person in your life. Lucky you!


If not someone in your life, the Knight of Cups could be telling you to step up, romantically speaking. Bring more of this knight’s energy into your own life, first by seducing yourself and then by turning that energy toward your heart’s desire.


Of course, not all questions are about romantic love and this card can be read in other ways. It can indicate travel over water or approach and arrival to a new situation.
