Knight of Swords

St George fights a fierce winged dragon. He rides a grey horse and holds his sword aloft. An orange butterfly flutters in a corner. In the distance, a bird sits in a bare tree.

My Interpretation: A brash young man, hot-headed but keen to do what is right.

Bravery, courage and heroism. Righteous anger. Triumph over opposition. A man of action, one who gets things done.

(Reversed: A fickle, flighty man - perhaps one who has trouble controlling his anger)

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 recognisable as both Knight and Sword are fairly obvious. I have used St George and the Dragon, as the reckless heroism and chivalry of the legendary figure are appropriate for the meaning of this card.
