Knight of Swords


Knight of SwordsThis is a young man with a great deal of air (Gemini, Libra, or Aquarius) in his chart. This could be a woman in touch with her masculine self. This young man is bright and sharp as a tack. He is on a mission to right a wrong or start a revolution. He is a critical thinker, but doesn’t always look before he leaps.

If you are looking for change, this is the man with the energy to carry the project through to fruition. However, he can be a bit of a loose cannon. He might get so caught up in the energy of moving forward, he loses sight of a small, but important detail. He probably has a sharp wit to go with his sharp mind. He can be a little sarcastic, but it’s seldom mean-spirited. This guy is an up-and-comer. If you’ve got him on your side, be prepared for a fun ride.

The images in the suit might be alarming to some, but they are not simply aggressive. Yes, we can use blades to inflict pain, but we also use them to carve, shave, and trim.
