Knight of Swords Tarot Card Meaning – The Hare Tarot Deck

Knight of Swords Hare Tarot Deck © Liz Shewan 2017

This white mountain hare is full of life and pretty upbeat and cheerful as he leaps with tremendous fearlessness and boundless energy over dizzy heights.  He shows great ambition, determination and strength to succeed no matter what. He is on a roll that’s for sure … but soon he will realise that if he doesn’t slow down he may have a few things to think about to keep him on the straight and narrow.


Representing air signs, his white fur signifies his purity of the intellect that motivates not only himself but others.  Now is a good time to engage with others who have similar skills so that you can share your ideas and develop new points of view.  The skies behind him are filled with storm clouds and the trees in the distance can be seen wildly tossed in the winds that reflects this hare’s mood.

Steady Pace

One thing he will need to bare in mind is his need to slow down so that he can remain balanced to fulfil his mission responsibly and with compassion.  He needs to remind himself to check with others around him to see that they are happy with what he is doing though, as he is prone to lean towards selfishness if he is not careful. That said, he really does need to go it alone in order to build up valuable life experience and maturity.  His ancestors have allowed him this freedom so that he can step into his manhood and gain understanding of the world, well aware that he could blunder along the way – serious burn-out and exhaustion more than likely being the main cause.


There is no intent within this lovely white hare to harm with his thoughts and words, but when you come across him he will definitely share something with you as that is his way – he is very enthusiastic.  Remember that it is in his nature to not always be aware of how he sounds or of the disruption he may cause with what he is saying to you the listener.  He will more than likely challenge your daily routine and your core beliefs.

Remain Vigilant

In his present mood, without foresight or preparation, he could easily charge forth into a dangerous territory and fall prey to potential conflict and challenges with others – so it is very important to keep a watch out for psychic attack.  Dashing about usually amounts in the end to scattered thoughts and energy leaving you open and vulnerable to this, so beware and ask yourself what you are actually achieving by all this racing about. You can also see the fox or the golden eagle waiting for him above and below as if he is their prey – there are constant reminders to show him that to avoid risk he must slow down a little and not cut corners in his hurrying.  If this signifies another in the reading then be aware that this person may suddenly disappear from your life without warning.

Emulate the Signs

Not all signs spell gloom and doom and it would be good to emulate the fox and the eagle here to help you on your journey.  The Fox’s cunning nature can aid you by offering you discernment so that you can see through deception – especially seeing as they are so swift themselves.  The golden eagle will help by stopping you from forcing your way through and manipulating those you meet and helping you see a situation from a much wider perspective.

It is Coming

The golden eagle has a lot more to say than this though – he also says that it is time to soar above the winds and meet our fate, the seeds you have sown, prepare to receive the results.  Someone or something desirable is about to seek you out.  Go after your heart’s desire.  If you’re waiting for news, you are likely to hear favourable news.  Work is coming your way, and this work will make you look good amongst your peers.  Love is coming your way, you will be swept off your feet. Keep doing what you’re doing money wise, more is coming your way.  But all this comes with the caveat ‘Don’t get cocky!’ … you wouldn’t want to burn your bridges would you?   And think long term – quality not quantity.


The meaning of this card very much depends on where it falls in a spread, but one important thing to always consider when this card appears is whether you are or if someone else is behaving in a narcissistic manner, co-dependant manner or showing c-PTSD tendencies.  So, linking back to ‘Remain Vigilant’ this could leave you vulnerable to possible psychic attack or vampire energies.  Either that or you will be perpetrating these onto another.  Always be aware of the affects you are having on others, or the affects they are having on you so that you can take action and clear the space to ensure that there are no casualties, or as few as possible considering the circumstances.

Chosen Jewellery Piece from Lunar Treasures for The Knight of Swords

You may or may not have realised yet that I love to create beautiful things. Each piece of jewellery I make is embodied with different energies to help with different times and situations in life.  For the Knight of Swords I have chosen this beautiful wolf, singing to the moon.  This wolf will offer you the sharp intelligence that you will need during this journey you are undertaking.  He will help you to keep a deep connection with your instincts and give you strength and power within your appetite for freedom.   At the same time he will help you with your personal boundaries and offer you protection.  If you feel you have exposed yourself too much with someone or in a certain situation simply reach up and touch this pendant and it will remind you to step back and give yourself time to strengthen your emotional and physical boundaries.

Wearing this amulet on your person will carry on any healing work you have evoked whilst you are not conscious of it. Also wearing it on your person will act as a reminder for you to look inward to heal any issues in this area whenever you feel it on your skin, or touch it with your hand. It is so easy to sweep deep healing under the carpet, hoping that it will go away. Time does not heal these wounds, only specific introspection and negotiation can heal these wounds.

At this time this beauty is a one off, so to make it yours follow this link to my Lunar Treasures shop.  If by the time you get there it is already sold you can commission me to make one for you so just get in touch.  Any questions or issues please do get in touch.

Chosen Essential Oil for The Knight of Swords

I favour Clary Sage to help aid with the negative aspects of this card.  As you will have read this card indicates that slowing down and finding balance is a must to get you through in one piece.  Clary Sage is a biennial or perennial herb that grows up to six feet in height, and it is known for its calming properties known to be one of the most relaxing, soothing, and balancing essential oils. In the Middle Ages, the Clary Sage plant was frequently used to soothe the skin, which being the outer layer of our physical bodies is often where the first signs of trouble show up in our bodies visually.  Inhaling Clary Sage promotes feelings of relaxation – which will also allow a restful night’s sleep – being at such a fast pace and having to ward off psychic attack sleep may well be evading you.  Clary Sage is derived from Latin meaning clear eyes – medieval monks favoured it for eye troubles and metaphorically it can help you see the bigger picture. Using Clary Sage in your daily routine is a great addition to your ‘tool box’ to help release patterns of un-grounded anxiety.  To get your own personal supply please follow this link to buy from my essential oils shop.  Any questions or issues please do get in touch.

Safety:  Use cautiously during early stages of pregnancy.


Help Yourself to Heal

I have helped thousands of people by offering Tarot Readings which give you an idea of where you are headed, based on your energy in the ‘now’. Readings offer clarity, guidance and reassurance – which is in itself a healing experience; a place where many people start. Readings however do not offer the tools to help you ‘tweak’ your life; Soul Rebalancing is for that.  Soul Rebalancing incorporates all these things, but takes it one step further; working with transmuting your energy. This healing process may involve soul retrieval, soul rescue, chord cutting, energy management, spirit release, past life regression and/or past life readings, removing crystallized energies, extracting hardened energies, learning how to manage entities and intrusive entities, environment issues, transforming toxic emotional energies into light, overwriting imprints to name a few. Anything that is needed to free you up to truly be who you are. It is in effect evolution – and is ultimate freedom. You will need less sleep, kiss goodbye to sleepless nights; gain a clear mind and make decisions and take action with confidence and clarity. Your energy levels may increase tenfold!
