Knight of Swords

Frequently, this card refers to you, or someone who strongly influences your life in the situation in question, but does not have to be male. The Knight of Swords comes to the fight primed for battle, his sword waving a challenge to all comers. He leads with his sword, then his head, then his heart. The mind of the person in question, like the Knight’s, is swift and requires constant stimulation. The butterfly on his horse is a symbol of his emergence from a chrysalis: he rapidly transforms into the blazing Knight depicted on the card. He makes a powerful impression, appearing suddenly, aggressively...but will his enthusiasm carry him through to the end, and will his high energy last?
