The Knight Archetype

Upright Meanings: leadership, applause, success, being in the spotlight, acclaim, achievement, stability, praise, being a leader, riding high, having the advantage, supporters, triumph, victory, goodwill, pride, fame, good news, celebrity, winning, recognition, crowds, confidence, well-wishers, sharing your victories, fans, awards, strength, self-esteem

This particular card is all about public recognition, victory and success. Not only have you managed to properly succeed in achieving all of your goals, but you are also being publicly acknowledged for them and the results that youÂ’ve managed to attain. You may have received an award or some sort of public acclaim. The card is indicative that you have managed to harness the strengths and talents that you have within you in an attempt to bring a particularly successful outcome in your life. You have managed to properly get through the confusion which is brought by the card before this one – the Five of Wands and managed to properly minimize distractions, thus successfully focusing on your goals and achieving them.

Reversed Meanings: broken promises, pride in riches, failure, fame hungry, egotistical, being hunted, postponement, pride before a fall, treachery, disgrace, losing, ill-will, disadvantage, lack of achievement/recognition/ support/ confidence/ endurance, diva, disloyalty, mob/ pack mentality, bad news, weakness, arrogant, being a follower, disappointment

When the card is reversed, this suggests that you might find yourself doubting all of your abilities as well as your overall potential to achieve any kind of success. You might be feeling particularly negative about your entire self as if you have failed others as well as yourself. This is a symbol that means that you lack the confidence and drive that you need to achieve. You need the overall support as well as recognition of third parties in order to pick you up, to emotionally provide you with some much-needed strength.
