The knight of cups is seen as somebody who has a perfect ideal of how they would like things to be, particularly when it comes to emotions. They like to idealize, and they like to project these ideals onto others. If these ideals of theirs don’t happen to fit what these other people feel in their own hearts, they may take it personal. As they take it personal, they may become upset. Because of this, they may be seen as moody. When what they project hits its mark though, and these other people appreciate what you are sending out, they shine. This truly puts them in their element.
The knight of cups is most definitely a people person. They love to engage and be active with other people. At a party, chances are they are the center of attention. Likely, they have many friends. People are naturally drawn to them for their exuberant personality. But they need to be careful. They run the risk of being overbearing. Not everybody will share their enthusiasm for togetherness. They run the risk of coming on to too strong, causing people to take a step back, lest they become overwhelmed.
Ideas suddenly pop into their head. They love to have fun, and to bring people into their circle to have fun together with. Their natural tendency to see the good in a situation makes them an optimistic and positive person. Sometimes, they may be a little too positive. A little too optimistic. They may sometimes deny the problems that exist, which does not do them any good.
When the knight of cups comes up for you, it may be advising you to be realistic. It’s great that you don’t dwell in the negative, but accept things for what they are. When you always wear rose colored glasses and smile when you your heart is frowning you run the risk of coming across as phony. People will see through this mask. Be careful about that. Stay positive, but at the same time, stay real.
Project too much falseness, and people will stop taking you seriously. Nobody will care what you have to say because they will just assume that you are not being genuine. Don’t end up dismissed every time you open your mouth because people know exactly what you are going to say. You’re denying yourself important life lessons when you do this. Find the balance between reality and optimism.
