This article continues my series on the Court Cards. For some background information on this series, see "Court Cards, Part I: The Kings of Tarot" and "Court Cards, Part II: The Queens of Tarot."
For this series, we are looking at the Court Cards as representing other people involved in the situation that the querent is asking about. Knights are known for focused action that generally gets results but may be oblivious to anything else going on around them.
When a Knight appears in a reading, it is a good indicator that someone will take swift and decisive action that will impact the situation.
Committed to completing whatever quest they seek or to fulfill whatever vow they've made, the Knights rush about seeing only what concerns them directly. Although their goal that may or may not have anything to do with the querent's situation, the Knight's action will affect it somehow and may even wreak havoc in the situation. They can be unpredictable, extreme, and chaotic. Keep an eye on them!
The best way to keep a Knight from running around and potentially causing problems is to get their attention focused on something productive. Knights can, in the right circumstances, have a powerful positive affect on a situation. However, it is not easy to capture a Knight's attention and refocus his energy. But if you understand what motivates him, you stand a good chance of enlisting his support. Get him interested in your cause and you will have a commanding champion in your corner.
Each Knight brings his own unique personality, motivations, and faults to any situation.
