Rider Waite Smith Five of Pentacles Tarot Card Meaning

Knight of Cups


The Knight of Cups is a deeply emotional and tender card. The consummate romantic, the Knight of Cups loves approaching life with an artistic and poetic flair. They're drawn to dreams, myths, and art, of course, but their main focus is the intoxicating power of love. They seek it out eagerly - you could say it's their main quest - but when it comes to the nitty gritty of commitment, they're quick to become flighty and bored, maybe even a little bit resentful. Look to this Knight for a refreshing change in perspective, the desire to stop and smell the roses, and a bit of daydreaming irrationality. 


A young, intense, and passionate person who loves creating special details - buying flowers, planning a special getaway, making visionary art, etc. They're true dreamers and have issues with the restrictions of reality.


Enchanting and a welcome escape from the doldrums of the everyday, the Knight of Cups invites you into their special world. Go against their magic, however, and you might find yourself in an uncomfortable position. This Knight is not so gifted at regulating their emotions and lashes out at constraints, imperfection, and challenges.
