King of Cups

LORD OF WAVES AND OF THE WATERS

THE HIGHS

The King of Cups represents the Fire in the element of water, trying to bring the contrasts into balance. He uses the flaming fire to inspire the passive water. Therefore, there is a certain instability within this Kings’ character, whose emotional demeanor can easily shift.

As all Kings, The King of Cups belongs to the world of Briah, which  is the world of emotions and sensitivity. Therefore, this King has a good senses for art, poetry and music. If he manages to reach real depth and inner conviction, he can provide tenderness and emotional warmth. 

THE LOWS

On the shadowy side, the rapidly rising emotions of The King Of Cups can be overwhelming. However, his interests can fade as quickly as they flare up.  This King is friendly but passive.  He may appear appear unsteady, full of unripe ideas and failed attempts.

KING SOLOMON

The King Of Cups is one of the greatest philosopher kings in history: King Solomon.  Nobody is more of a contradiction than he.  On the one hand, we are told he was the wisest king in the world.  On the other hand, he instituted slave labor, married (or just slept with) many foreign women and had shrines built to pagan gods.

The King Of Cups is flying up from the waves on a white horse. The white horse itself,  symbolizes purity, but also the power to have a vision of purity, love and sensitivity, which go beyond the ego.  The King is holding up a cup high above his head – pointing forward. His shield has the sign of Scorpio on it.
