Daily Mindfulness Thoth Deck
Knight of Cups
Swiftness and violence ill suit a character naturally placid; it is rare indeed to meet a person who has succeeded in harmonizing these conflicting elements (BOT)
This Knight sweeps off the card in an elegant swish. Fire of Water can be volatile if one is not careful but used correctly can be very nourishing. As Crowley says, "he is quick to respond to attraction and easily becomes enthusiastic under such stimulus but he is not very enduring. His name is writ in water."
If we can keep these elements balanced we have grace and enthusiasm, creativity and compassion. But this Knight doesn't have a lot of depth to him so he can easily fall into unsteady vanity and selfishness. At this Knights best though, he is full of tenderness and support, good humor and keen insight. I think this card is a good reminder to stay balanced and letting the energies around us flow openly and naturally and not being blocked off or stagnate.
