Knight Of Swords – Deviant Moon Tarot Deck
I. The Description of Knight of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot
An open gate awaits the brave knight ready to plunge into an adventurous quest. Although she is known as the protector of the city, she sometimes leaves that position in pursuit of impulsive actions.
The Knight of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot is acknowledged to be one of the distinct cards from the other cards of the Swords suit because the card carries a fairytale hidden in the images. The use of gender in each card has Patrick’s implication, which may not be obvious in the Major Arcana cards, but in the Minor Arcana, this is completely portrayed in a naked and understandable way. First, the application of the female knight image instead of a strong male warrior is due to the connection between the female knight and the horse she is riding. If you pay a little attention, you will clearly see the image of a single-horned horse – Unicorn in Western culture.
Quite a lot of people know about the image as well as the legend of the unicorn. In European culture, it is a mythical animal. The unicorn itself is white, has a horn or wings. Traditional unicorns also have a goatee, lion’s tail, and split hooves. During the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the unicorn was mentioned as an extremely wild creature, a symbol of purity and grace that could only be captured by a virgin. To get back to the point, it may completely explain why the Knight of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot is female.
In fact, the unicorn is not found in Greek mythology, but instead, in the books of the Indians. Medieval knowledge about this creature has its roots in the Bible. Fables of animals in the Middle Ages disseminate a delicate image, among them, the Unicorn, in the custody of the Virgin Mary. As soon as the unicorn saw her, he rested his head on her lap and fell asleep. This became the basic symbol that underpinned the unicorn concept, proving its presence in all forms of religious art. Along with the rise of humanism, the unicorn also carries the symbol of pure love and faithful marriage. The unicorn is also found in ancient seal designs, a sign of high social status. The horn of the unicorn can dissolve poisons and heal disease. The unicorn is best known among the royal badges of Scotland and the United Kingdom, symbolizing pride, dignity, and rather death than being conquered.
Returning to the Knight of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot, the unicorn in this card is crossbred with a dragon. In the old original is the image of a Knight fighting a dragon, either killing it or himself being killed, in this version, it is about taming and breeding. Of course, to do that, Knight is required experience, accuracy, and strength both physically and mentally. We clearly see the aggression and ferocity of both human and animal figures.
In her hand is a long thin sword, everything becomes flexible, the moon is at its lowest stage, it is time to give way to thinking, using the mind, concentrating without fear. The color used is mainly brown of the earth – the color of trust, stability, support, and serious performance. The silver color on Knight’s body represents wealth, grace, elegance, and sophistication. However, Kight’s impatience and youthfulness are described through her own color and sitting position. If not careful, she would easily fall off her unicorn at any time. That is to say, assertiveness, sometimes accompanied by impatience and haste, is negligence and exhaustion of energy that does not produce effective work.

IV. The guideline of Knight of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot
This card has traditionally been named The Knight, but in some modern decks, it appears as The Prince. It depicts a restless mind, aroused by thoughts of offensive and defensive behavior, rushing to find a target to attack.

Furthermore, with a righteous attitude, he can assign himself the work of correcting offenders. Easy to come to conclusions, he shoots first, asks questions later, and is therefore often committing an excessive crime. This doesn’t mean he doesn’t have his hero side; A single combination can be worth it. However, even if he is doing the right thing, he can do it for the wrong reasons. The right piece of advice for this card is to question deeply your motives for what you are thinking about working. Self-considering will help you discern righteous and unrighteous causes. Control any trace of impulsive judgment!
Sometimes you will notice details on the Knight of Swords Deviant Moon Tarot card, that this person may be more of a woman than an expected man. There is some evidence that the tradition of the knighthood includes a number of “anonymous knights” who took their mythical names and concealed their true identities. Living on the road with little or no servants, they serve as defenders of freedom to tourists, defenders of little ones against the exploitation of both highway robbers and the noble class. Strangely, some of these knights were women in disguise, and that idea is preserved with the traditional image of the Knight of Swords.
