Your Chosen Card – Knight of Cups Upright Thoth Deck
Knights are mature accomplished individuals (father figures) who are in charge of the matters related to their suit and element. They represent important men in the querents life or significant personality traits needed by the querent to navigate the situation. When upright, the Knight of Cups is a sensitive, emotionally attuned man of accomplishment who gives good advice that can be of great assistance. He is often quite cultured and may appear in the form of a helpful physician, therapist, counselor, cleric, or other professional who ministers to the needs of the querent. Some authors feel that the Knight of Cups (Air of Water) comes across as cool and emotionally detached as he tries to give preference to his intellect while he keeps his own feelings under wraps.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ruled by expansive Jupiter and in modern astrology by Neptune, mystical Pisces is the twelfth and final sign. Pisces the Fishes, an adaptable mutable sign, is associated with the Moon card, trump XVIII. The Knight of Cups falls largely under Pisces, a sign whose natives are characterized by these traits:
Creative Tarot: Then there are those who respond not to the synchronicity but to the randomness itself. The meaningless part of it. The twentieth-century avant-garde composer John Cage provides perhaps the best example/way to explain this part of it, even though he chose the I Ching over the tarot to help him compose his projects, the most famous of these being his Music of Changes. The ancient Chinese text, said to date as far back as the tenth century BC, is similar to the tarot, except that it uses tiles or coins rather than tarot cards, and a large book that helps you interpret the patterns formed when you conduct a reading. Cage would ask a question about the composition he was working on, cast the tiles, and then use the answers found in the book to make changes to the music.
Complete Book of Tarot: Third-party readings. A querent may ask you to consult the cards for someone who is not present. Most readers believe you should only do a reading for the querent and avoid consulting the cards to garner information about someone who has not given permission, as it is tantamount to spying. The tarot is not a granny cam. In the words of Hippocrates, ‘Whatever I may happen to obtain knowledge of, if it be not proper to repeat, I will keep it sacred and secret within my own breast.’

Tarot Triumphs: Once you have become familiar with the basic ways of interpreting the cards (in this case, the keynotes just given), you can start to see how they work in combination. This is the main basis of Tarot divination, and it takes pride of place in the Fool’s Mirror layout. I hope this will become clearer over the next few chapters, where the relating of the cards to each other gives the reading its individuality and relevance.
