Today’s card is the King of Cups from the Morgan Greer Tarot. In combination with the Five of Cups, my Card of the Week, this King is all about compassion and understanding for people in desperate and challenging situations.
He is the master of the emotional realm. He has lived through the entire suit of Cups and knows perfectly well that emotional setbacks can be so detrimental for your well being. This is why he is determined to guide others who are going through similar things he has experienced. And he will do so in a very gentle and caring way.
For today this King can represent someone who is really there for you when you need him the most; someone who will listen without judging. Someone who will give advice when asked for and who is able to be still and just sit with you when needed
The king of Cups can also represent a book, a movie, a deck of cards, or even your dog. Any trigger which will give you guidance and insight in what you’re going through and how to move forward on your healing journey.
Last but not least the King of Cups can represent yourself; the gentle kindness for yourself when nobody else can give you this; the inner voice that urges you to take a walk or a nap, to paint, to journal or to just sit and be with what is, without fighting or wanting it to be something else.
Naturally when we are feeling up to it, we can be the King of Cups for somebody else. Often when you have been dealing with some heavy stuff it is easier to relate to others who are having a hard time too. This is when we've come full circle.
