|Dr.Nikki's Tarot -
|The Knight in history was the ultimate fighting
man. Taking years of training to achieve
Knighthood held responsibility and the need to
adhere to a strict code of conduct. In our
society the bolder, stronger, more mature
representation of the Knight is most closely
equated to the young adult with their new degree.
Fully trained and ready to take on the world
they have the confidence of their education, but
may be short on experience.
It is not difficult to find idealism in the Knight as
he stands in your spread. The fully armored
knight, riding a fully barded steed with lance held
at the ready is an excellent depiction of the
strong masculine energy found in the Knight.
Knights tend to be idealistic or jaded, but
normally tend to one or the other extremes, not
having achieved the wisdom of compromise yet.
The Knight is a bridge between the idealism of
|youth and the wisdom that comes only with experience.
The Knight can be brash and uncomfortable as he
challenges you to use the energy of the element to
which he belongs in your daily life.
The Knight, like the other court cards, can indicate
the arrival of a new person. With the Knight this is
normally someone who carries many of the traits of
their suit. Studying the cards will actually give an
indication as to physical aspects such as hair color,
height, age, etc.
