The second court card in the swords’ suit is the Knight of Sword, and here, we have an energy that oozes confidence, dynamics, and fearlessness.

The Knight of Swords is a double-edged sword. On the one hand, he is bold, righteous, loyal, and determined. On the other, he is egotistical, arrogant, passionate and self-righteous.

This is the fearless activist who will go where others fear to tread. He will fight tooth and nail for a just cause, and his courage is unrivaled.

But this is also the intolerant zealot who refuses to listen to anyone else and will silence the opinions of others, which stems from an unwavering view that he is always right.

Quite the character! Knight of Swords energy is powerful – but with great power comes great responsibility.

The Knight of Swords has several meanings, including:

  • Fighting for what you believe in
  • Honesty
  • Bluntness
  • Being rebellious
  • Quick-thinking
  • Fanatical
  • Obsessive
  • Warrior
  • Heroic
  • Risk taker
  • Critical
  • Speaking without thinking
  • Leaping before looking
  • One-track mind
  • Daring

What Does the Knight of Swords Mean in Love & Relationships?

The Knight of Swords can take on several meanings in a love and relationship reading. If pulled in the position of how someone feels about you, it indicates that they are feeling very determined about you. There is definite interest here.

However, this card can also indicate the hit-and-run lover who is there one minute and gone the next – so for anyone looking for a long-term relationship, it’s not the best card to get. There can be cruelty attached to the Knight of Swords, too – this is the type of person who would dump you by text message or brag about their exploits with you in the locker room.

For how someone sees you, the Knight of Swords indicates they see you as a go-getter who isn’t afraid to stand up for what you believe in. They may feel a little intimidated by you!

For what someone wants to happen between you, this card is one of action. They want things to speed along. They may grow impatient, thinking nothing is happening or things are going too slowly.

What Does the Knight of Swords Mean in a Career Reading?

Career-wise, this card indicates a fast-paced and dynamic career or workplace. This could include sales, media, journalism, or a fast-paced environment like a fast-food restaurant.

This card can also indicate politics, as the Knight of Swords is an astute thinker who feels strongly about social issues. A career linked to politics or embassy work is likely with this card.

The Knight of Swords could indicate someone with his qualities – go-getting, straight-talking, passionate, and determined, which will impact the career you wish to pursue.

What About the Knight of Swords as an Obstacle?

As an obstacle, the Knight of Swords indicates that the qualities of this knight have veered too far toward the negative.

There may be fanaticism or over-zealous behavior involved. An inability or unwillingness to see things from others’ viewpoints. A desire to force others to think the same way as they do or face some kind of punishment.

As an obstacle, this knight represents someone or a situation that is too overbearing and controlling. There is no room for compromise – the knight’s energy is being misused, and emotional healing work is often necessary to work on the obstacles and remove the energetic blockages.

What About the Knight of Swords in Reverse?

Reversed, the energy of the Knight of Swords turns on its head. Where we had a fearless, heroic individual who boldly dares while others watch in awe, we now have a bully and a tyrant who insists on getting their way.

The Knight of Swords reversed can be petty and nasty. If disregarded, this knight can be very vengeful.

Reversed, the Knight of Swords indicates someone who has lost passion and enthusiasm for a cause, person, hobby, or relationship. The drive is gone, and the flame has died out. It has become a great struggle to feel excitement as they once did.

As a reversed card, this indicates one-track-mindedness that can become dangerous when not kept in check.

How to Make the Knight of Swords Work For You

While this knight can be volatile, his energy is ultimately one of courage and daring. When faced with a daunting or frightening situation, one of the best things you can do is harness the Knight of Swords energy.

These affirmations are wonderful to repeat to yourself morning and night to harness the energy of this wayward knight.

  • I am brave and strong
  • I will stand for my values
  • I believe in the strength of my convictions
  • I am confident in my ability to communicate
  • I will fight for a cause and not give up
  • I will see it through till the end
  • I am fearless in the face of danger

Let the Knight of Swords Guide You to Victory

The Knight of Swords is a warrior and will stand true to his beliefs. When this energy is harnessed at its best, he becomes the noble hero, gaining crowds of admirers and fans.

How the energy is harnessed depends on the individual. But at his best, the Knight of Swords is truly a force to reckon with.
