The Knight of Cups is young* man who has not reached maturity** yet. His vocation in life could be related to the element of water (a fisherman, a sailor, a plumber etc.) or emotions (a counsellor, psychologist, actor etc). The symbolic relationship to this card may not be vocational, it could be a description of his personality. In which case this man will be a sensitive, caring, romantic and perhaps even a gullible or innocent youth. Sometimes it refers to a youth who has feminine qualities or who is highly intuitive or even psychic.
In the Rider-Waite-Smith Tarot The Knight is travelling on a horse from west to east and he is about to cross water on his journey. It is important to note these details when divining who the symbology is talking about. This could, for example, mean a young man who comes from across water (overseas) and/or from the West.
Finally, the symbology is never fixed in its interpretation as this card may not represent a person but a situation. For example it could be a warning about drinking and driving!
*the age of this man could be relative to the person the reading is for. He maybe a mature man but a younger man.
**maturity happens between ages 28 to 37, when a man enter's his 2nd numerological life cycle.
