If you are asking about what is the outcome of a relationship, and you draw the Knight of Swords, that means that communications may be a little harsh between you and your person. It is astrologically associated with Gemini, which is a strong communication related energy. This could be a relationship where one of you is extremely blunt, to the point of inadvertently hurting the other partner.

Depending on your love language and personal preferences, this could be a good thing or a bad thing. If you are compatible and on the same page on worldviews and values, this relationship will be amazing for you. However, if you’re not on the same page on key issues, this person can be opinionated and overbearing. They can be extremely stubborn, and are unlikely to change their minds about things. So, if you are thinking about taking this relationship to the next level and raise children together, definitely take this into serious consideration.

If you are wondering about a potential relationship, the Knight of Swords as love outcome means a lack of romance.  The Knights of Swords is not the most romantic energy in the Tarot. Sometimes this energy can be mistaken for a lack of Interest, as it is more intellectual and professional than personal.

However, usually if this person is not interested, they will tell you bluntly to your face.

If you are in a new relationship, the Knight of Swords as love outcome means needing to slow down in the relationship. This Knight is always in a hurry, an energy which may not be the most healthy energy to have in a relationship. The relationship may feel like a fast-paced one. You or your person might be very direct, and you don’t beat around the bush about what you want out of the relationship. It might feel exciting to progress from one phase to another at a quick rate, but all good things take time. The journey is part of the fun, so make sure you make a point of enjoying the present moment.

If you are in an existing relationship, the Knight of Swords as love outcome means deciding it’s time to progress the relationship into something more. You could have been living together for years, suddenly decide it’s time to legalize things. The Air energy of this card indicates cerebral energy, so your decision may be motivated by practical considerations, such as tax purposes. However, this does not mean the love isn’t genuine. The two of you may simply not believe in traditional marriage, and you never really saw the necessity for legalizing your relationship. Alternatively, you may go on an impromptu trip together.

If you are inquiring about an ex you’re interested in reconciling with, your ex might want to rush back in. However, make sure that they have properly done their healing, since this Knight has a tendency to rush in with zero planning or consideration.
