Knight of Cups as Feelings Tarot Card Meaning Sibyl Tarot

The Knight of Cups is the card of idealism, charm, charisma, romance, and diplomacy. The card shows a knight riding on a white horse. He holds out a cup as an emotional offering, perhaps as a truce. His message comes from his heart. He moves gracefully forward, neither charging nor holding back.   

The Knight of Cups reminds us that romantic love can be a true whirlwind of charm and idealism. There is a perfect someone out there for you in the Universe. The Universe hears you, and your intentions will be manifested back at you. The Knight of Cups is a reminder of the beauty of romance, lovely and tempestuous in all of its forms. 

Upright Knight of Cups as Feelings

If you are asking about how someone feels about you and you draw the Knight of Cups, it means that this person is feeling in love with you. They are in love with being in love with you, and they go out of their way to show it to you. They are feeling idealistic about you. They see the positive in everything that you do. They are sensitive and sensuous in their approach to everything. 

This person may also be so up in their feelings that they have unrealistic expectations about love. They feel like you are the perfect partner for them right now, but what will they think when they realize that you are just a human being? This person needs to become more aware of how they are approaching their relationships. While there is nothing wrong with taking an idealistic approach, they should make sure that they are also grounded in reality. 

For singles and those embarking on new relationships, the Knight of Cups means that this person is feeling like they are falling deeply in love with you. They are in love with being in love with you. They go out of their way to show it to you, whether it is buying you flowers or sending you romantic poems. They feel like you are their ideal partner, and they see the positive in everything that you do. Their idealism is beautiful, but take care that it doesn’t get out of hand, otherwise they will be disappointed later on when they find out that the sun does not always shine at every point in a relationship.  

For existing relationships, the Knight of Cups indicates that this person is feeling very romantic towards you and your relationship. They love being in love with you. Although you have been together for a while now, your partner still has very tender feelings toward you. The love and the magic has never disappeared for them. They believe that you are perfect for each other, and they are happy in their bliss. 

If you are asking about an old flame or an ex’s feelings about you, the Knight of Cups indicates that they are dreaming about you. They romanticize being with you once again. They see your past relationship as being flawless, and they regret what they left behind. If you are asking about reconciliation or getting back together, your ex is interested. However, for a reconciliation to work out in the long run, they need to stop their cycle of romanticizing something and then devaluing it. They need to be grounded in reality.  

In the context of whether or not a relationship is headed for commitment, engagement, or marriage, the Knight of Cups is a good sign. The cup outstretched in the card can be a symbol of a proposal of marriage. Your person is feeling very good about your relationship right now. They are viewing the future with rosy eyes. They believe in you and your relationship, and they are in the right mindset to want to take it to the next level.
