For today I've drawn the King of Cups from the Mary El Tarot. For me he is the master healer, the empath, He feels deeply without drowning in his own or other’s emotional tidal waves.
In the picture we see our king floating in the water between blue lotus flowers. He is holding his scepter, signifying he is Poseidon the God of the Ocean.
The king of Cups is master over the deep realm of our unconsciousness, of dreams and imagination.
It seems like there is not much going on in this depiction but although the surface may look calm and peaceful, we never can quite grasp what is lurking in the undercurrent. Al we can do is trying to be still and listen, like this king is doing
I've picked up my meditation practice (Four days in a row J) This will help me to be still and listen to what is going on in the deep waters of my soul. I do hope I can keep it up and try to see it as a gift to myself instead of a chore.
