47-Knight of Primordialism – Reversed Mage Deck

Your Chosen Card – Lord of Chalices Reversed Mage Deck

When reversed, the seductive Knight of Cups casts his spell so convincingly that you don’t realize you are walking about in an illusion. You may think he really cares about you, but in reality he is using his charm for his own ends regardless of how it affects you in the long run. The reversed Knight of Cups is the archetypal Don Juan of classical literature. He will mislead or seduce you into providing him with momentary pleasure. Don’t expect a committed relationship. Forewarned is forearmed.

Keywords Reversed: Escapism, illusion, deception, passivity, hedonism, impracticality, fraud, trickery, artifice, seduction, superficiality, boredom, dishonesty, unreliability, breach of confidentiality, mind-expanding drugs; a con artist, a Don Juan; ‘wham, bam, thank you, ma’am.’

Decans/Timing: 20 Aquarius–20 Pisces. Tropical, 09 February–10 March; sidereal, 04 March–03 April
Astrology: Fire of Water.
Associated Trumps: The Star and the Moon.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books

Complete Book of Tarot
Book Details
Complete Book of Tarot: Waite (1911): A hoodwinked female figure balances two swords upon her shoulders. Divinatory Meanings: Conformity and the equipoise which it suggests, courage, friendship, concord in a state of arms; another reading gives tenderness, affection, intimacy. The suggestion of harmony and other favorable readings must be considered in a qualified manner, as Swords generally are not symbolical of beneficent forces in human affairs. (R) Imposture, falsehood, duplicity, disloyalty.

Tarot Books

Complete Book of Tarot: Astrology: The stern taskmaster Saturn in the first decan of watery Pisces, realm of the Knight of Cups (Fire of Water) and the inconstant Moon (Pisces). Saturn is linked to the World.

Reversed Cards: I for one quite enjoy Mercury retrograde cycles, as I see them as a time of retrieval. I imagine Mercury dashing back to his cosmic office to get all that I need to make my dreams and wishes come true. I see him seeking out all the connections, resources, and people I need to bring my goals into the physical world. To achieve my goals, I work with the Magician in the reversed position a lot. Next time Mercury is about to do his backward slide across the sky, try this spell and see if you can find a way to make his energy work for you and not against you.
