Knight of Swords

Description

A Knight on horseback, pauses on a rocky ridge and holds his sword high, pointing towards a dramatic, light and cloud filled sky.

Symbolism

Facing the left side indicates that a major part of this learning will only occur once he acknowledges the 'truths' of past experiences. A rider and horse symbolize the union of conscious and unconscious principles. Though the sky is filled with light the Knight is silhouetted against it. The scale of the scene illustrates the vast scope of the task ahead, where the Knight must charge forth, leave the darkness of his past behind him and seek the truth within.

Card Meaning

Knights are an example of the active process of the element of air. Knights are also associated with all the tales of leaving home and searching for adventure, battles, or whatever it takes to cross the threshold into adulthood. They are motivated to test their skills and have a steady focus on their goals. Being an air card in an air suit, the Knight is obviously action oriented. In this example, the Knight has paused to seek a respite from some nameless battle as he honors his guiding spirits of the air. He has entered a phase of high learning, using his mind to cut through the air of words.

Artistic Media

This scene was created entirely within Corel Photo-Paint 7.

Artist's Bio

The artist is an avid collector of tarot decks, closing in on the 800 mark. Educated in Astronomy, Math, and Languages, he works, presently in Operations Management, while doing Noetic Research during his spare time. The majors are complete for his private deck, in black and white, which may or may not be published.
