He holds a short sceptre in his left hand and a great cup in his right; his throne is set upon the sea; on one side a ship is riding and on the other, a dolphin is leaping. The implicit is that the Sign of the Cup naturally refers to water, which appears in all the court cards.

The Knight of Cups is an older man who is a dreamer or very creative. He may be difficult to ‘read’.
The characteristics of the person signified by this card are nevertheless mostly passive, in accordance with the Zodiacal attribution. He is graceful, dilettante, with the qualities of Venus, or a weak Jupiter. He is amiable in a passive way. He is quick to respond to attraction, and easily becomes enthusiastic under such stimulus; but he is not very enduring. He is exceedingly sensitive to external influence, but with no material depth in his character.
When the card is ill dignified, he is sensual, idle and untruthful. Yet with all this, he possesses an innocence and purity which are the essence of his nature. But he is, on the whole, so superficial that it is hard to reach this depth. “His name is writ in water.”

CONCLUSION
Honest man, philosophical or idealistic, doctor or professor, teacher, a man of the law, traveller, promoter, inspirer, hunter, wanderer, sailor, etc. The querent’s actions, business or wants will be judged and brought to light. There may be some exaggeration, fantasy or want of accuracy, but there is certainly hope and promise for the future. Perhaps travelling on the sea. W. rightly observes under this head: “The implicit is that the sign of the Cup naturally refers to water, which appears in all court-cards” (i.e. of this suit.)
