Tarot Card of the Day Thursday 5 May

“It is the soul’s duty to be loyal to its own desires. It must abandon itself to its master passion.

— Rebecca West

Knight of Cups

It’s funny that the Knight of Cups shows up as our card of the day shortly after I immerse myself in the Scorpio energies of the upcoming lunar eclipse. (You can find my Eclipse article + Tarot spread HERE). You see, this is the Scorpio Knight and nobody is more passionate than he is. Like the other knights, he is on a quest. In the case of the Knight of Cups, what he is questing for is true love.

Unlike the other knights, the quest of the Knight of Cups inevitably leads him to and through various stages of initiation. The reason for this is that when we earnestly seek true love, love demands that we shed all fear.

We either allow love to push itself into our being and begin the work of soul alchemy or we hide in our own shadow. In the case of the latter, the Knight of Cups may still experience passionate love relationships but they will always be stormy and cannot last for very long.

So many of us with a checkered romantic past can relate to this Knight. We have all had to learn about love the hard way. Why? Because of past/childhood pain and trauma. When you quest for love but at the same time have a lot of unhealed emotional baggage, that is just how it goes. As soon as we accept this and start doing the healing work in earnest, we stop allowing these painful lessons to play on repeat.

What to Do On a Knight of Cups Day

When the Knight of Cups is our guide, we simply must follow our hearts. All the better if we can do this with healthy boundaries and awareness of our own shadow. But even if that is not the case, we must still follow our heart because it will take us to the lessons that we must learn in order to heal and ascend.

Angelic Tarot Correspondences for the Knight of Cups

The main angel I associate with the Knight of Cups is Azrael, the Angel of Scorpio. He is a great comforter in times of transformation, such as after a painful break-up. If you are looking to manifest to invoke your perfect romantic match, then ask Archangels Haniel and Raphael for help.
