Knights represent sudden change and activity. Swords are the suit of taking action and making a move. This card reminds us of the necessity to move on new opportunities and to view changes and sudden alterations of our path as progressive, rather than an obstruction. This card speaks of rewards for decisive action, but warns against impulsive “reactions”. Set a goal and take actions on it, don’t merely react to your immediate circumstances.
Position 1: Background | Present Concern
A period of sudden change and important actions being taken in whatever area is of most concern to you.
Position 2: Your Drive and Motivations
You see things are beginning to look up and are hoping it continues. Ambition and motivation return. That desire present to get on with things or get this show on the road.
Position 3: What’s Blocking You – Fears and Subconscious
Unresolved issues from the past need to be cleared away, distrusting people, looking down on or judging people/situations in haste – a need to slow down and consider things more carefully.
Position 4: Perspective and Further Awareness – What you Need to See Clearly
You have the ability to get where you want to go, and the desire.. now you just have to have faith. Learn to let go of past disappointments and hurts and don’t let them color your opinions about your present situation. Move forward and don’t let yourself lose steam without instant gratification. Persist.
Position 5: Course of Action
Get past your fears by resolving to take action towards your goals despite them. Those who achieve great accomplishments push forward while also accepting their insecurities.
