Knight Dream Meaning | What Does it Mean To Dream Of A Knight?

Knight dream meaning | What does it mean to dream of a knight?

The knight dream meaning is quite special. What does it mean to dream of a knight? I had an unusual dream the other night, of a knight, in fact. Yes, a knight in shining armour. Actually in my dreams, I saw about three knights, one after the other, all dressed in shining armour, some battle weary, and all carrying a sword and shield.

Of course, there are knights in a game of chess, and there are knights in tarot. One of my favourite tarot mistresses is Biddy. Here’s what she has to say about the knight, “Knights are also slightly more mature than a Page. They have enough experience under their belt to know what they’re doing, but the trouble is that that do not have the full life experience that the King and Queen have, thus they are prone to being extremists. Such excessive feelings and behaviour can be either positive or negative depending on the circumstances.”

Your dream of a knight might indicate protection issues

Knights are there to guard, to protect and to serve. They have been gifted with special powers by royalty. They are supposed to be honourable. In this way, they might represent honour, dedication and protection.

Some interpretations suggest that dreaming of a knight means that you are seeking protection, or are already being protected. The knights in my dream all looked very worn out, as if they had been fighting for me for some time.

Knight also go forward, looking for adventure. They seek out battles, and aim to win them. Seeing a knight in your dream might indicate that you are also about to embark on an adventure, perhaps you are seeking your fortune.

Knights are heroes, and they are chivalrous. But sometimes they are also aloof, and untouchable, right? Remember that the expression “knight in shining armour” means something that will rescue you.

What is the meaning of a sword in my dream?

If your knight is carrying a sword like mine was, this can indicate victory from a battle. In tarot, swords are associated with taking action, and the action can be positive or negative. Dreaming of a sword in the hand of your knight might mean that you are feeling brave, and ready to take a chance, to defend your honour.

What is the meaning of a shield in my dream?

Shields can indicate protection, either on Earth, or from up above. You might be feeling exposed and vulnerable, and you are trying to shield yourself from what you fear. If a knight in your dream appears holding a shield, he is there to assist you in your protection, and to keep you guarded from what you fear. He is on your side. This knight dream meaning is trying to tell you something!

Your dream of a knight could mean ‘to show courage’

Be brave, help protect the weak, even if that weak person is you. Your dream of a knight is there to show you that you are braver than you think, more chivalrous than you know, and ready to take charge into battle, even if you don’t know it.

This is a great dream, because it is there to show you that you are stronger than you think, and that you have honour and dedication. The knight dream meaning is really something special.
