Card Meanings

Dating the Knight of Swords

Swedish Witch Tarot Knight of Swords

Anyone who doesn’t take truth seriously in small matters cannot be trusted in large ones either. ~ Albert Einstein

All the Knights are on a quest for something and this one is on a quest for Truth. He has an Aquarian feel to him. If he finds something to be true, he latches on to it for dear life but if a new (and possibly completely opposed) theory makes more sense, I promise you’ll never see anyone make a quicker 180 degree turnaround and cling to this new truth more forcefully.

So what if his friends or family can’t keep up? Let’s face it, they will never matter as much as The Truth to this guy.

He may be a an arrogant pain in the arse sometimes (aren’t we all?) but if you know this guy and he is mostly well-meaning then please stay here. If he seems to take pleasure in proving others wrong and/or using his intellect to decimate others then please refer to 8 Types of W*ankers.

Pros: If he finds a worthy cause that he believes in, he will be a staunch ally and advocate for that cause. He is not emotionally manipulative and jealousy doesn’t float his boat.

He has a genuine interest in the bigger picture and doesn’t mind putting the footwork in to research things to get to the heart of the matter.

Having a sharp, analytical mind, he’s often found in the IT industry where he earns a good living. The money is never what motivates him though.

He’s not afraid to experiment and try new things in the bedroom.

Cons: The whole dating and romance game often seems silly and like a waste of time to him. He’s also quite quick to pick faults with things… and people. So if you’re sensitive to that sort of thing, you’re probably better off with someone who’s a bit softer.

Even though he often demands complete freedom for himself in the relationship, he can be oddly possessive about his partner.

Sexually, he may be more interested in technique than intimacy.

In his old age, you can find him pondering the evils of Christmas on ‘Grumpy Old Men.’

Type of date he prefers: The cinema (preferably SciFi) or simply a game of chess. Why complicate things?

Time from your first date until you introduce him to your parents: Not until he is convinced being with you makes sense. Since love never does, you may have to wait a while… Or he may introduce you to them after the first date. Expect the unexpected!

Because his heart is not always aligned with or in proportion to his mind, he often surprises himself too when the odd swell of emotions takes over.

Wedding style: If walking down the aisle to the theme of Star Wars is your idea of the most romantic wedding ever, then this guy is your man!

Type of dad he would make: Aloof but usually quite concerned with the academic side of things. He also loves his gadgets, so don’t be surprised if your baby is the first of the toddler playgroup kids who knows how to use a laptop.

His best match: The Queen of Swords as a) she probably bumped into him at Comic-Con in the first place and b) her heart is the least likely to get broken by his sometimes thoughtless fault-picking. His worst match: The Queen of Cups because she would a) quickly be reduced to tears by his sharp tongue and b) would feel very lonely as she craves ten billion times more emotional intimacy than this man is capable of.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts, feedback and questions. Please note that, while I'm happy to answer questions about individual cards, I don't interpret spreads. I get several requests every day about interpreting DIY readings based on my spreads. Even if I had the time, I don’t think it would be a wise investment of my time to ‘read on readings’ – A reading is done in synergy between the cards, the question and the reader… in the MOMENT.
