King of Cups shares emotional loyalty – unconditional love and commitment – the ability to give emotional comfort, support and positive regard to others. Qualities of generosity, reliability, respect – one who provides wise counseling with much empathy. A quiet spirit, filled with love that has moved beyond “ego” and vanity and offers unconditional spiritual healing and uplifting.
Your happiness is the key to being alive. Laugh, love, smile and bring pleasure to your life. Regenerate yourself and you regenerate and heal others. Achievements derived from your creativity – shape life in a way that separates you from your playful imagination. To achieve success, you discipline and even suppressed your dreams – directing all your creative powers into socially responsible achievements and confining your natural energy flow. Always trying to maintain a calm exterior may cause you to subconsciously suppress your feelings and troubled emotions. Balance of your imagination and discipline is essential now – lighten up and have some fun. Healer by example and by touch. Faith is love, centered on the one God.
