This knight is all dressed up and ready to go. His horse is moving, but not charging a head. He is holding his cup, in touch with his feelings, but also looking up to see where he is going, he hasn't sunk into fantasy, which cups can do. I like this Knight, who is balancing thought and action, feeling and analysis. This is where you want to be, moving ahead, perhaps a mite too cautiously, but moving in the right direction.
I like the Inner Child version showing us the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz, the man convinced he had no heart but acting in the most caring, tender way because of it. He is seeking what he already has, and what he needs to find is faith in himself, he has everything else he needs to finish his quest.

The young man looks into a cup and sees… a fish!
If this card refers to a person - he’s creative, looks outside the box, and has a great imagination. He’s the sort of kid you send out to sell a cow and comes back with 3 magic beans, kind and sweet, but not always thinking things through. He can have his head in the clouds and you might have to yank him to get his feet back on the ground. He is idealistic and sweet, and distractible, but things usually work out just fine for him.
If this card refers to a situation, if it’s a new job, things won’t always be as clear cut as you would like it, but there is a chance for creative expression, for trying new things.
The shadow side of the card is it’s sensitivity - It can also refer to a situation where people are emotional and getting their feelings hurt all the time, where you feel you have to walk on eggshells.
I love the inner child version – so many people feel themselves as goldilocks, on the outside, looking in. In this card the page is searching for his/her place in the universe.

I call this the Happy Ever After card. It looks like the scene at the end of the movie where they smile and hug under the rainbow and the words ‘and they all lived happily ever after’ appears. Of course, happily ever after is never constant, but this is a card of contentment, of joy in a family/home environment. If I’m asked if a relationship will work and this card appears, we both smile.
It’s a wonderful outcome card, and I’ve also seen it as a basis card, if you operate from this basis, though troubles may come, you can sort them out and give them the proper balance, because home is safe and strong and loving…
I like this image of the family pets snuggling before the fire, this is the coziness and hominess that this card holds.
