The Knight of Cups from the Rider/Waite/Smith deck shows a knight mounted on a gray horse. He is dressed in armor, including a winged helmet. He holds a cup in his outstretched hand. This knight is riding forth to meet his destiny and pursuing a path of self discovery. Since cups are the suit of the emotions, he is seeking to learn emotional expression, which may mean that he offers his love in irresponsible ways. Today’s Journey Tarot’s Youth of Water celebrates life to the fullest. He surfs the waves with abandon in his pursuit of the joys of life. This is the approach he takes in life and relationships so like the knight, his emotional immaturity causes him to be careless with the emotions of others.
