Knight of Cups

A man in a winged helmet and spurs rides a thick-set grey horse with fine gilded trappings. An angel offers him a message and he holds a cup aloft. A large fish jumps in the dark sea. In the distance a wooden lookout can be seen on the seashore.

My Interpretation: A sensitive young man of depth.

An opportunity approaches. A new lover or intimate friend. An inspired and creative person. He is emotional and capable of deep and intense love, but afraid to commit for fear of being hurt.

(Reversed: A departure. A charming, attractive and enigmatic person who is capable of great disloyalty. Beware of trickery and fraud by someone you trust)

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've swapped pictures around and added more symbolism to assist readers. This card is now more similar to the Rider-Waite card, hopefully easily recognisable as both Knight and Cup are fairly obvious. There is water for the suit, and a winged helmet and heels to signify his task as a messenger. There is also a scroll-bearing angel to signify news, and a watch-tower, from which an arrival could be seen.

Dedicated to my wonderful brother Harold McMahon, without whose support I would have been homeless and/or starving before finishing the deck.
