Knight of Swords Reversed Tarot Card Meaning

When the Knight of Swords appears reversed in a reading, it can indicate the influence of a young man (can be a woman too) in your life who may be giving you bad advice which is affecting your decision making abilities.

When reversed, the Knight of Swords meaning suggests impatience and impetuous behavior accompanied by bursting of energy in the young man. This man’s enthusiasm lacks any kind of direction, making him take rash decisions.

If the card represents you, you still have a lot of miles to walk in order to get the valuable life experience that you need in order to overcome adversities along the way. Do not be in a hurry to learn everything as your mind is scattered at the moment with too many ideas. If you keep pushing yourself without a break, you will soon burn out.

Reversed Knight of Swords Prediction for Career

 When the Knight of Swords comes reversed in a career spread, the time is not right to undertake a new project. Being impulsive and hasty at this stage could have a negative effect on your work.

You may also face delays in your current plans. It is best to exercise patience and wait for the right timing.

Be careful of the ideas of a young energetic man, who may be intelligent but impertinent, disorganized and illogical. He will be unprepared for the things you want to achieve and will pull you down along with him.

When the card represents you as a person, you may be ruthless or vicious in your ways while aiming for your career goals. You like things going your way and can be pushy with your ideas.

 In a financial spread, this card reversed indicates that there could be a young man in your circle who could be resorting to illegal behavior in order to earn a fast buck. Be wary of him as he could cheat you out of your money or involve you in some scam.

If the card denotes a trait, you are so focused and determined on earning money that you do not care if you cross a certain line in the process.

Reversed Knight of Swords Prediction for Love

 In a love reading, the reversed card may indicate the departure of someone in your life, most probably a male. This is not a good time to alienate yourself from your loved ones. Do not try to control a situation through force and aggression. It may be your own selfish behavior and motivation that could be the cause of your current problems. Getting into heated arguments with the sole purpose of intimidating the other, will serve no purpose other than making your loved one part ways with you.

Sometimes the card encourages you to take a deeper look at your partner as there is something that is bothering them. Is it a lack of chemistry with you that she/he is experiencing?

Reversed Knight of Swords Prediction for Health

 When the Knight of Swords comes reversed in a health reading for you, it cautions you about some hidden issues which may not be so straightforward. You should get an opinion from a doctor about any discomfort you may feel.

A vacation at this time will help you to destress and rejuvenate after all the anxiousness you have subjected yourself to.

 As a Yes/No card-No card.
