The Knight of Swords
Upright - A clever, skillful and active person, courageous and strong, always at his best in a difficult situation. He may have a tendency to dominate and depending upon surrounding cards, his movement may be either in or out of the querent's life for either better or worse. He is the archetypal warrior.
Ill Dignified or Reversed - The card reversed, lends itself to someone who is impetuous, sly and deceitful, fierce in action with little staying power. A starter but not a finisher of things. Quarrels may be indicated, but this depends upon surrounding cards. Application of great force and energy becomes 'simple-minded indulgence'.
