Tarot of Vampyres

Knight of Swords

Mercury in Gemmini:  Logical, restless, quick-witted, trickster, scattered.
Number 12:   Opposing energies, unbridled creativity.

Move out of the comfort zone that’s stagnating you. Create your own reality. Consider new approaches to resolve lingering issues and problems.

This Vampyre appears more the Prince than Knight, but then all the Knights in the Tarot of Vampyres are referred to as Princes. With blood-soaked dagger in one hand and blood-stained rose in the other, there’s a Byronesque air to this finely-garbed young man. I see a bit of a Poet. As the Suit of Wands is tied to the element of Air and the Knight of Swords is directly connected to an Air sign (Gemini), it would make perfect sense for him to be clever with words – Gemini is all about communication, thoughts, and ideas.
