King of Cups

A person sits on a throne that appears to be floating on the water.  He holds a scepter in one hand and a cup in another. He wears the symbol of a fish around his neck and his feet are covered in chain mail.  The seas around him are turbulent and a fish is visible jumping out of a wave while a ship is seen sailing by behind him.

A very affectionate person but one who controls his or her emotions carefully.  Capable of staying very grounded and steady, even in the midst of turbulent emotions flowing all around him.  The chain mail beneath his cloak indicates that he may be a trifle protective of his own emotions and perhaps that allows him to remain so stable.

Reversed:  A lover or emotional partner who is not well grounded or reliable.  Perhaps even flighty or mercurial, this is not someone you can count on in a pinch.

EXAMPLES:  A lover who is caring and sensual in private but is really uncomfortable with public displays of affection.

A good friend who is always there for you if you need help but doesn’t much like discussing emotions or affections.
