The meaning of the Knight of Cups Tarot card is ‘romance.’ The Knight of Cups represents faithfulness and can predict a Prince Charming coming into your life. If you’re looking for love, you’re in luck – be prepared to be swept off your feet!
In some Tarot card decks, the Knight of Cups is called the Prince of Cups or the Son of Cups or Chalices. However, the Tarot card meaning of the Prince/Son of Cups/Chalices and the Knight of Cups is the same.
Knight of Cups General Tarot Meaning
The Knight of Cups is a romantic character who cares about you and your feelings. He brings you flowers, takes you on dates, and shows how much he cares. If you’re single, the Knight sends you the message to not worry; he’s on his way.
Knight of Cups – My Thoughts
“The Knight of Cups symbolises a Knight in Shinning armour character. It is a very good card to receive if you’re single and looking for love.” – Lisa
If you’re attached, this card can serve as reassurance that your partner only has eyes for you. If they’ve been a little distant recently, The Knight of Cups can mean they’re going to start showing you more love and attention.
Sometimes, this Court card can represent you as an individual. Perhaps you are the one who is loyal and committed. You always try to see the best in other people. In a positive Tarot reading, this trait obviously serves you well, but in a negative reading, it can mean that you’re willing to overlook things for the sake of a content life.
Although the Knight of Cups is generally positive, there will be times when it signals an idealized version of whatever it is you wish to achieve. You (or the Knight of Cups character) will be going about life with rose-tinted glasses. If this is the case, you need to be more realistic about your goals.
I often interpret the Knights as representing friends or associates. The Knight of Cups can represent a sensitive person who will introduce you to your future partner.
Knight of Cups Love Tarot Meaning
In a love Tarot reading, the Knight of Cups represents a partner coming into your life who you can depend on. You may have kissed a lot of frogs in the past, but now you’re going to meet your Prince Charming. If you’re wondering about a partner’s feelings toward you, they are completely devoted. The Knight of Cups is one of my top Tarot cards meaning love.
If you’re already in a relationship, the Knight of Cups is a positive omen, as it means that your partner is committed, devoted, and faithful to you. If you’re not in a good relationship, the Knight could be your partner changing for the better or someone else coming along and getting ready to sweep you off your feet.
The Knight of Cups is the type of person who wants to spend all of their time and energy focusing on their romantic relationships. Just as the Knight of Wands can suffer from energy burnout, the Knight of Cups can be plagued with love burnout. Although romantic in the beginning, the Knight of Cups can begin to chase the thrill of a new relationship, so try to keep your partnership a balanced one. Don’t get too caught up in their fantasy.

Knight of Cups Feelings Tarot Meaning
If the Knight of Cups appears as a feeling, it means that the person you’re reading about is in love with you. They want romance. They will like to take you out on dates, buy you flowers, and send you cute text messages. The Knight of Cups is very loving.
Knight of Cups Career & Business Tarot Meaning
When it appears in a career Tarot reading, it’s highly possible that the Knight of Cups is a loving partner who’s giving you emotional support during the building of your business or career.
In a more negative career Tarot reading, the Knight of Cups can represent an idealized attitude about your circumstances. Perhaps you are convincing yourself your plans are going to work out without doing any research, or you may think that the area you’re going into is easier or more profitable than in reality.
The Knight of Cups often appears in business readings when you see your situation clearly. You have an idea that you think will give you the perfect work-free life, but this is not the case. Passive income is not as passive as you think.
Knight of Cups Future Tarot Meaning
When it appears in the future of a Tarot reading, this means you’re going to meet a hopeless romantic soon. That isn’t to say they are going to be a lover of yours; they may simply be a friend. In any event, the Knight of Cups character is either going to become a prominent feature in your life or assist you in some way.
As already stated, the Knight of Cups can represent your lover. However, if your current partner is not romantic, I would not read the Knight of Cups in a future or outcome position of a love spread as a positive omen for an established relationship. In these cases, the Knight of Cups represents a new lover who you’ll meet in the future, not the partner you currently have.
