King of Cups
The Card: The king is holding one cup and his sceptre. He is dressed in blue green and red, sitting on a grey throne. Around the throne is water and the sky is grey.
Interpretation: Where the queen still sat on a bit of land the King is now completely surrounded by water. His throne looks to be afloat in the midst of turbulent waters. But how flowing is the King ? His throne looks like a grey rock, the same colour as the sky, and he has got a stern look in his face. He knows its time to let fully go, we can see his foot is sliding towards the water, as if he was going to slip into the unknown territory below.
He knows his power symbolised by the sceptre. Perhaps he is reviewing his life, deliberately staying on his little rock of well known structure before he jumps in. Or maybe he has managed to balance the structure and the flow, he can navigate the deep waters of emotions and surfacing subconscious on his floating throne, with one foot connecting him to the waters.
Prediction: With experience I will navigate the situations of uncertainty, and constantly changing situations. I keep a measure of structure around me since it is useful, but I know its good and necessary and good the invite the spontaneous, uncontrollable and unknown.
Keywords: Structure and uncertainty blending, method and spontaneity, experience and personal power, accepting the unknown.
