KING OF Cups DETAILED MEANING
To close the suit of Cups, The King is confronted by a small fish floating immediately above a vertical golden scepter, in front of turbulent waves. A galleon is tossed by rough seas. A larger tropical looking fish arrives unseen. Having just returned from the bay of Elounda, I know messages from the King, sometimes in dreams, bring far reaching changes.
The King is immensely creative, though he usually applies his creativity in an ordered, scientific fashion. He may well indeed have a scientific connection and though he is the head of the suit of emotions, he is the most analytical court member. The King finds displays of emotions a challenge & always remains in charge of his feelings, giving an air of detached aloofness. The small fish is a direct confrontation to his sensibilities indicating the King will be faced with something that forces him to directly face his emotions. This card often has a serious message, I have seen many times that if The King of Cups appears to a questioner he is making them confront unexpected mood swings where they feel helpless or trapped with no obvious cause. The message here is there is an underlying cause, the questioner just has to be ready to accept it. I recently gave a reading for someone who had accepted a new job that involved extensive travel, they loved the job and package, the prospects seemed great, the crunch was they had serious travel sickness that was going to be a major hurdle. They had ' forgotten ' that in the course of the interview, thank fully I have since found out, a combination of hypnosis & travel sickness medication has made this aspect of the job bearable, if not yet completely enjoyable. The galleon pictured warns that if internal emotions or underlying restrictions are ignored, eventually they will break free & may prove difficult to bring under control. The King of Cups - Why are you feeling like this ? Get in touch with your emotions.
