Artist Interpretation 

The King of Cups is representative of the element of water. Nautical imagery was chosen to reflect this – there are elements of the crab for Cancer and the fish for Pisces. The King of cups is intelligent and wise, so an expanded translucent cranium was created to show this. He is also calm, collected, compassionate and confident. He holds an organic living cup, effortlessly as if it is part of him, and he has a deep understanding, an almost symbiotic relationship with his cup. I depicted a universe is being created from his cup, to show his powerful ability to create with compassion, art and science.

The space squids and dolphins were chosen to represent energy and flow. The dolphins symbolize creativity and the balance between the conscious and subconscious mind. The etheric space squids crown his head and complete the cycle of energy, aiding the king in his creation.  

Card Meaning 

When this card appears in a reading, it is suggesting that you draw on your experiences to make decisions today, remembering that your wisdom has been forged within your head, but also within your heart. So you should rely upon both, understanding that all your words and actions have an impact on others, employing compassion where possible, especially when you may have to make a hard decision. Be diplomatic in your conversations and dealings…you never know what someone else is going through.

The King of Cups can represent a commanding, wise and understanding figure in your life currently, or coming into it soon. Someone who stays calm when others would fail to do so, who you naturally feel can advise you, his goodness shining through his every interaction. Inspiring you and offering ways to be more tolerant in your day to day actions.
