The Golden Tarot Knight’s
Knights are supercharged with energy. They actively bring something into your spread and into your life. It could be a visit, news heading your way or major changes. Depending on the energy of you spread, a Knight could be a serious opponent or challenge in your future. The Knights are very special cards because they are all active, they are on their way and on a mission. Pay close attention to their message for they want to take you somewhere and show you the best way to continue on your path. They serve the King and Queens of their suit and usually announce actions, news and revelations. Knights are about forward motion, high spirit, drive, determination and almost reckless demand for compliance.
The Golden Tarot Suit of Swords
The Suit of Swords is associated with action, change, force, power, oppression, ambition, courage and conflict. Action can be both constructive and/or destructive, sometimes resulting in violence. This suit can also mean hatred, battle, and enemies, and of all the suits, this one is considered to be the most powerful and dangerous. The Suit of Swords deals with the mental level of consciousness that is centred around the mind and the intellect. Swords mirror the quality of mind present in your thoughts, attitudes, and beliefs. Swords themselves are double-edged and in this way the Suit of Swords symbolises the fine balance between intellect and power and how these two elements can be used for good or evil. As such, the Swords must be balanced by spirit (Wands) and feeling (Cups). The negative aspects of the Suit of Swords (i.e. when the Swords cards appear reversed) include anger, guilt, harsh judgement, a lack of compassion and verbal and mental abuse.
Comprised of imagery from the European masters paintings, Golden Tarot cards pay tribute to artwork of the Middle Ages and early Renaissance. The Golden Tarot of Klimt is one of the best for artwork. Golden Tarot aims to reconnect the Tarot aesthetically and esoterically to its origins in early-renaissance Italy. From a time of violence, pestilence and oppression came poignant images of gentle beauty and human frailty.

Here are some snippets from a few of my favorite books
Complete Book of Tarot: Ruled by fleet-footed Mercury, the messenger of the gods, Gemini comes third in the zodiac. Gemini the Twins is an adaptable mutable sign associated with the Lovers, trump VI. In Greek mythology, the Gemini twins were the mortal and immortal sons of Zeus who so loved each other that the divine member of the pair made the choice to forsake his immortality so he could remain with his mortal sibling for eternity, joined together as the constellation of the Twins of the zodiac. The Knight of Swords falls largely under Gemini, a sign whose natives are characterized by these traits:
Creative Tarot: Which is, essentially, what the imagery of the tarot does as well. Every gesture, every color, every archetype and figure stands in for something greater, something very personal and meaningful to us. Its no wonder, then, that surrealists were drawn to the tarot.
Complete Book of Tarot: The Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot, published in 1909, undoubtedly the most popular deck of the last century. It has been cloned many, many times.
