How someone sees you or feels about you?

Things will rapidly change for you as they have decided to take the plunge and express their feelings towards you. They are coming with the truth, and their heart on their sleeve, so brace yourself to receive it.
Just starting dating?

Still, in this case, you should be careful of their manipulation and decide for yourself if this person is sweeping you off your feet and not catching you when you fall.
What not to do?
It advises you to be frank about how your partner makes you feel, and not allow them to dictate how you should feel, love, or how much pain you should be in. It also advises you to remind yourself of your values and grow your self-esteem, as someone represents by Knight of Swords, as an air sign, is very talkative, demanding and sometimes can become too much for you to handle. You should come back at them with the same sword they come to you, meaning if they are sarcastic or have dark humor, if you can’t talk back to them in the same manner, they are not someone for you.

In someone else’s eyes, you seem just to keep moving to the next big thing or always jumping into another opportunity, but only you know how much thought and preparation you have put in your action.
It can also indicate that you may get promoted or you are moving to a different branch of career or traveling for work in another state where there’s another branch of the same company you work for.

You are not seizing the opportunities coming because you are not sure if you can handle them or if you deserve them at all. On the other hand, it could indicate that you feel very much in power, but you are leading yourself to failure because you have not done all the research you should have done, you have miss calculated your moves as a result of self-bragging, or being too full of yourself. Regarding finances, it can indicate a sudden loss.
Knight of Swords – Timing
When will something happen answer?
If it is a question that involves around the timing of an event and you pull the Knight of Swords, this would mean that whatever you desire or wonder about will manifest, but it will take time, as an Air element indicates movement, and a swift one.
How soon is that, it would be kind of complicated because it could mean Wintertime, or that of a Zodiac Sign season Gemini, Libra or Aquarius.
The way you want to interpret this is keeping in mind that whatever you are asking about is coming, though it could come in a breeze or not stand for long.
With the Swords Suit, the best way to go around figuring out the time would always be to think at least one later, and it would go something like this: If it is already Winter, your best bet would be next month or around Aquarius season.
