Knight of Cups - Creative Vision Quest

Drawing the Knight of Cups, another Court card, in the suit of cups again, sparked my interest. This happens a lot, often drawing related cards for a number of days. I am partial to the suit of cups, because the suit represents the emotions, relationships, friendship and matters of the heart. It is also the suit associated with water which is the element I most relate to, because my Moon is in Pisces, and I am often reminded of this on a daily basis being a creative, and I intuit my way through life.

What can be problematic for me, has been change and inconstancy. I have worked hard on both areas of my life and continue to do so. It is a good thing to know that I have the best possible vocation I could have, pursuing art, as I'd never been happy at a desk job or with employment where I could not use my creativity. Many years back I was told by an Astrologer that it was important for me to pursue a spiritual quest in my life. He was right.

The Knight of Cups is on a quest, perhaps romantic, possibly creative or spiritual. The Cup could represent the 'Holy Grail' and the fish in the water is also a symbol of spirituality.
 I am not romantically searching, but as far back as I can remember, I have had a spiritual and creative vision quest.

What stands to me is that this knight isn't in a hurry. He lets his horse walk slowly, while taking in the scenery. Spiritual and creative quests can not be rushed.

I like seeing the Knight of Cups as being on a spiritual or creative quest - at this stage of my life, it makes more more sense that romance! :)
