Interpretation of the card:
The image depicts a "sacred warrior" who believes that they are fighting in the name of a higher power, against those who do not share their beliefs. They use their sword and horse to destroy the perceived inferior places of worship and eliminate those who differ in faith. The cross on their shield represents in whose name they carry out their perceived "righteous duty." They believe that they are participating in a "holy war."

The meaning of the Crusader Symbolon card
1) As a single or first card The problem
By acting against your better judgment and suppressing your formed opinion, you brandish your sword against perceived dissenters. Your desire to assert your perceived "correct" opinion blinds you to the fact that this behavior only masks your intention to fight and destroy. You try to disguise your aggression with comforting words, but you fail to acknowledge it within yourself.
​​​​​​​2) As the next cardWay through the problem
At some point, you must possess the courage to defend your opinion, even if it means engaging in conflict. Simply understanding the issue is insufficient if you are not prepared to turn it into action. Of course, it's not productive to fight against something, but rather to fight for something.
3) as the last card︱​​​​​​​Result
Your actions will now be guided by common sense and maturity. Your blind aggression will no longer dictate what you do, but instead the power of your conviction will. You have come to understand that it is too easy to fight against yourself, to battle with your own reflection.
