Short meaning: A young and impetuous male that you find rather charming bears an influence on you now. Be wary as he will act with superficial knowledge of a situation. He is quick to change opinion and therefore direction, meaning he could leave your life as quickly as he entered it.
In-depth meaning: In a situation, the Knight represents a hasty change of opinion, or a knee jerk reaction, to someone or something in the Subject’s life. There is a lot of energy and movement with this card and they may be impatient for things to move on. The Subject should consider if there are loose ends to be tied up, or responsibilities to be seen to, before they gallop down off down their new path.
As a person the Knight is clever, witty, talented and energetic. He is easy to admire and everyone wants to be involved or associated with him. He is not very mature, though, and has little in the way of consistency and dependability, unless it suits him at that time. His opinions and beliefs are flighty because he has no real experience to draw on and so his opinions, beliefs and allegiances, continually fluctuate. These characteristics are damaging to his personal relationships and hard on people who come to rely on him. The Knight regularly hurts people and, as soon as he perceives a situation has become stale or boring, he will move on.
Notes on the image: This Knight is the only one of the four Knights that has his horse rearing and ready to charge into the fray. His Sword is raised and he is keen to get on with the challenge ahead. Whilst there is a glimmer of sunshine in front of him there are grey clouds about. His horse is looking one way and he in a different direction. The image represents being impetuous and not paying attention to details, or signs, that might have an impact on the situation. This image is also about action first, thinking later which portrays knee-jerk reactions, and the love of action rather than consideration.
