Reversed Knight of Cups as Intentions

If you are asking about someone’s intentions towards you, and you draw the Knight of Cups reversed, that means this person intends to confuse you with their passive-aggressive approach. They’ll be all amorous one minute and coldly dismissive the next. They don’t follow through with their intentions. You better ask yourself: is this the person you want to maintain a close relationship with?

The Knight of Cups reversed as intentions means that they are frustrated by the reality that not everything will be in their favor. They have set ridiculously high expectations for you. They wanted your relationship to be perfect. But once they experience its imperfections, they don’t know how to handle the changes. They are also notoriously irritable and have a propensity toward excessive jealousy.

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Knight of Cups reversed is a sign of them intending to keep you at bay with their inability to be accountable for their feelings. They are being nice to you now, but they are going to start acting distant soon. They don’t give a damn whether their wild mood swings negatively impact you. While you may enjoy this person’s company and hope for a love connection, you must remind yourself that you don’t deserve their erratic behavior. A genuine relationship cannot thrive on such shaky ground.

For existing relationships, the Knight of Cups reversed represents an intention to make you feel confused. There is something wrong with your relationship, and you both know it. However, they can’t pinpoint the exact areas that need to be addressed. Taking a passive-aggressive stance is not productive and will eventually backfire. Instead of getting to the bottom of the issue, your partner becomes enslaved by their ever-changing emotions which manifests in severe mood swings. You need to communicate honestly and set realistic expectations for your relationship moving forward.

If you are asking about an ex’s intentions, the Knight of Cups reversed shows that they intend to think about whether or not your relationship was ideal or not. They have a different perspective on what love should be. The unrealistic expectations they set ended your relationship, but they do not acknowledge that they are in the wrong. If you want to get back with your ex, they may need to equip a more realistic and healthy idea of what a relationship should be. Unless they do anything different, you will find yourself back where you started.

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Knight of Cups reversed means that this person’s intentions are conflicted. Your partner lacks the decisiveness necessary to get into a deeper commitment at this time. Some days, they want to take the relationship to the next level. On other days, they question the connection you share. For the two of you to be on the same page, you need to have an open and honest conversation about the issue.
