Can a gifted advisor tell me more about the Knight of Swords?

Do you want to know a secret?

In recent years, the Knight of Swords tarot card has been coming up often in my spread, but it wasn’t until recently that I realized why!

Because I finally took the plunge and consulted a very gifted advisor who completely changed my perspective!

I didn’t realize that this card meant a new beginning for me!  I think it’s because I have been thinking of moving on from my current relationship and starting a new one!

I’m ready now to be swept off my feet by love again.  I want to stop taking love for granted and start loving more fully, as this is the only way we can grow as individuals.

I was a bit unsure at first because it’s hard to find someone you can trust.

There’s an abundance of fake “experts” out there, but very few genuine advisors who can offer practical life advice.

That’s why I recommend Psychic Source. They provided me with a unique insight into where my life should go, including who I was meant to be with.

Having tried several online advisors, I think they’re the most caring, compassionate, and knowledgeable network of professional advisors out there.

The Knight of Swords reversed meaning

The Knight of Swords reversed means that there is some conflict that exists in your relationship.

It could be:

1) A secret about a past relationship, which may come back to haunt you

2) Something serious going on behind closed doors, perhaps regarding finances or love?

3) There’s an attraction between the two of you but neither of you speaks up about it.

4) It can also mean something petty or childish is going on in regards to jealousy or ego.

Either way, this card signifies conflict between two individuals. Some other common interpretations include:

Past hurt

The Knight of Swords Reversed can also mean that your lover has betrayed or in some other way hurt you.

Because you’re holding onto this past hurt, you’re afraid to let your guard down in fear of history repeating itself.

You’re being dominated or controlled

The Knight of Swords Reversed represents someone who is controlling and domineering over your life.

This person wants to control every aspect of your life, and he will not hesitate to use his power and influence over you against you if he feels that this is necessary.

Look out for red flags

The Knight of Swords Reversed can also signify a relationship that might be emotionally or physically abusive.

So, if you’re newly dating, be on the lookout for red flags and if you’re in a toxic relationship, the card is a signal that it’s time for you to leave.

Be wary of users

If the Knight of Swords appears reversed in your reading about love, it means that you are being used by someone close to you.

This person will use your life and love for his benefit, and he won’t hesitate to hurt or use you if he feels like it’s in his best interest.

Don’t let your guard down. Chances are, this person is not your happily ever after and is simply a false twin or a karmic partner.

Don’t be afraid to cut ties, for all if someone is using you. Stop wasting time on someone who doesn’t deserve you.

But if you want more clarity on this, I’d suggest speaking to a gifted advisor at Psychic Source.

I mentioned them earlier. They have helped me out in the past and I’ve always found them honest and compassionate in their readings.

So instead of trying to solve all your love problems on your own, speak to an advisor who’ll give you the answers you’re looking for.

Knight of Swords meaning for twin flames

The Knight of Swords can signify a relationship with your twin flame is on the horizon.

A twin flame relationship is one where you find your perfect match or your soul’s mirror.

Twin flames are destined to be together whether in this lifetime or the next and accompany you on your spiritual journey as a guide and a partner.

This card can also represent your twin flame’s presence in your life, even if you haven’t met them yet. It’s indicating that they are somehow part of your life but you’re not ready to make the connection yet.

If you’re in a relationship with your twin flame, the cards indicate that this relationship is of great importance. The card is a sign that you are very much attracted to this person, and it’s a great sign if he or she appears in your cards.

The reversed card means that there are some problems in the relationship and that you need to keep an eye on it.

All twin flames go through periods of turbulence, after all, it’s just part of the twin flame journey.

However, simply just having the knowledge will enable you to turn things around.


Hopefully, the interpretation above will shed some light on what the Knight of Swords can mean for your love life.

But if there’s a part of you that still wants to know more, I recommend speaking to a genuine, professional advisor.

And there’s one company that I always end up recommending, Psychic Source. Not only did they blow me away with their accurate readings, but they were also kind and understanding of my situation.

So if you’re tired of wondering about whether or not things are going to work out with your current bae or boo, get in touch with a legit advisor and take your future into your own hands. I did, and I’ve never looked back since.

If you want specific advice on your situation, it can be very helpful to speak to someone with special intuition.

I know this from personal experience…

A few months ago, I reached out to Psychic Source when I was going through a tough patch in my relationship. After being lost in my thoughts for so long, they gave me a unique insight into what my future holds, and the confidence to make the right decisions when it comes to love.

If you haven’t heard of Psychic Source before, it’s a site where gifted advisors help people through complicated and difficult life situations.
