Card of the Week: Knight of Swords

Knight of Swords from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck.

Knight of Swords, from the Universal Waite Tarot Deck, appeared this week.

This card depicts a knight on his horse charging into the storm wielding his sword. He is brave, strong, skillful, and eager to overcome all difficulties. But, because he recognizes no limits, he tends to be fanatical. He has difficulty with long, steady plodding because he has a restless mind, and expects his enemies to fall under his charge.

Do things seem to not be moving fast enough for you? You may be courageous, and feel ready to move forward quickly, but you may want to take time to reflect upon the situation. Should you push ahead, or is being too headstrong and aggressive not the right approach? What are your motives?

People may admire your drive and ambition, but also be aware of the situation and your skills. Courage and confidence is good, but look before you leap so you are prepared for what is ahead.
