King of Cups

A bearded King stands on the seashore, gesturing toward a large cup. He holds an arrow and looks into the distance, where the people on one ship point to another one sailing off in the distance. A small crab creeps up the rocks.

My Interpretation: A warm, loving man who will give good counsel.

Intuitive, creative and gentle. This man does not need to portray a macho image as he is totally comfortable with both his masculine and feminine sides. He is enigmatic, with subtle strength - a quiet achiever. Spiritual satisfaction is more important to him than material success. He may also be a mediator, or a benevolent leader. This card represents the zodiac sign of Cancer.

(Reversed: A man with great hidden sadness. He keeps his emotions within, which leads to self-destructive tendancies)

Edit notes: Different to v1.0 card as I've added more symbolism to assist readers. This card is now more similar to the Rider-Waite card, hopefully easily recognisable as both King and Cup are fairly obvious.
