Full Moon in Pisces | Knight of Cups

Published by Alison Cross on

In September, we celebrate the Full Moon in Pisces, or, as we prefer to refer to him here in Tarot Thrones Towers, The Knight of Cups.

Alexander Daniloff Tarot

The Moon, in Tarot, is associated with imagination, dreams, subconscious and illusions.  If there is one Knight who knows all about THAT stuff, it’s the Knight of Cups.

The Knight of Cups is very much a Grail Knight to me, so expect to find yourself caught up in a new quest or challenge.  Yes, the Knight of Cups will have you all fired up and trotting off to fight for a cause – or at least taking part in the ice-bucket challenge.

But, like the ice bucket challenge – you might be getting involved in something that you don’t really know a heck of a lot about.  Do your homework before you ride off into battle to make sure that you are not under any illusions about what you’re doing!

The Knights represent polar opposites, so if he sees himself as a Righteous Warrior For The Cause it’s likely that other people will see him as something entirely different – at worst he’ll come across as an Evangelical Know It All (who really doesn’t know terribly much and who hasn’t got a huge amount of experience) and at best others will consider him a half-assed meddler, a romantic dilettante.

As Air of Water, we do have a lot of fizz in our Knightly chalice but, like fizz, the bubbles won’t last terribly long, so if you spend too much time gazing at your cup, you’ll find that you never actually DO anything other than day dream.

Air and Water can lead to quite a lot of turbulence – strong emotions, grand gestures…..but rooted in what kind of reality.  He’s in love with the idea of love, not the nappy-changing, smelly reality of it all.

This is Petrarch and Laura – loads of adoring poetry, but not much in the way of an ACTUAL relationship.

If you are planning any new project or job that requires imagination and creativity he’s very auspicious! However, don’t get caught up in just dreaming about what you’ll wear on the red carpet when you go to pick up your Best Actress Academy Award – you need to get your booty down to the community acting class first!

Don’t be caught up in the dream, get out there on the Quest.  And when you’re out there on the Quest, when you spot the Grail don’t just sit in admiring silence – Go. For. It!

The Tarot's Court Cards are my specialist area.Β  They talk to me. Not LITERALLY though ....

He's been popping up a lot in readings for me (me reading for others that is) recently. I rather tend to see the Knight of Swords as the righteous warrior and Cups as more of a dream-chaser. All that Grail stuff is a bit other-worldly and romantic but not terribly practical or down-to-earth πŸ™‚

Love this write-up! What a delightful description of this romantic, often over-the-top, dramatic knight!

Ha ha, I'm definitely full-on in the nappy-changing, smelly reality of life. Still, I take the warning to take the steps needed to make my dreams happen. And that's not dreams of the mothering kind πŸ˜‰

    Glad to hear it! As they sang in Rocky Horror 'don't dream it, be it'
