The King of Cups is the fourteenth card in the Major Arcana deck and is about a king but deals with emotions.  This card is a balanced card showing water and a scepter.

The King of Cups represents good thoughts and being mature, so it is a positive card to appear for the most part.


The past with the King of Cups is that you will have an argument and refer to someone you used to be close to, most likely a male figure.  These events that happened in your past that were traumatic will still affect you today.  However, you must understand you are very mature emotionally, and you think about a choice where you acted with good sense and didn’t follow your negative emotions.


The King of Cups in the present represents that you have to make hard decisions in your life.  The best thing to consider is that you will make choices like an adult rather than just jump into the choices without thinking.  You can contact someone who will help you and someone who will show you things.  Listen to them and pay attention to what they teach you.  Your feelings cannot control you.  Make plans that influence you externally. This position is all about taking the mature stance and making adult choices.


The future of the King of Cups is a position that allows people to come to your rescue.  They will be a partner or a friend and will help you with all things in your life.  This will be someone older than you, which can give you balance and help you make good choices. This will likely be someone you know, but may be a new person that enters your life for a time to help you make sound decisions.


In your job, the King of Cups will be there to help you impress people.  You will impress your boss and do things that will please them.  You will show them who you are, which will help them be happy.  Take care of yourself. This is a wonderful card to pull if you are hoping to get noticed in the hopes it leads to a promotion.


In love, you will see good signs.  You will find someone new that you never expected to meet, and they will be very smart and mature.  You will look up to them, and you will grow in your relationship.  The card will represent who you are and help you to make good decisions in your life.  Make a choice to do activities instead of just using words. Taking action is a plus with this card.


The health of the King of Cups is a good card to pick if you want to be healthy.  If you haven’t been going to the doctor as you should, now is the time to go.  If you have a good diet and are active, good, if not then you should work on these healthy habits.  Get a check-up and make sure you are in good health. If you are not, get help to improve and stay healthy. If you desire things, try to find balance.


The spiritual part of the King of Cups is a compassionate card.  This means that you will look at your life and see if you can balance it.  As a result, you will have a calm period of time where you will be happy and content. Enjoy this time, allowing the peacefulness to bring hope and healing to your spirit.


In the reverse, the King of Cups shows emotional maturity, and that you can handle the situation without being greedy or ignorant.  You will have new experiences and will not hurt other’s feelings.  You have to control your jealousy, anger, and hatred when you are around people.  Don’t be uncertain about what you feel. Losing your temper or losing control of your emotions will work against you.
