The Cups Court Cards of a Tarot Deck

By Victor Epand

The Page of Cups takes on the most imaginative and emotional aspects of childhood. This person lives with their feet floating above the ground so that their head can remain firmly in the clouds. If the card represents an event in your tarot reading, the event in question will likely have to do with a child- as in a pregnancy. But it can also be the birth of a relationship or new emotional state.

If the card represents another person or a part of you, it is representative of a romantic. Compassion, gentleness, and imagination define this person. They love peace and can't always handle conflict. There is bravery under their dreamy fadade. But there is also a moodiness and impracticality that stems from not being connected fully with reality. Under this card, dream big and dare to think the impossible can be possible.

The Knight of Cups does not gallop forward as quickly and boldly as the knights of the other suits. He travels slowly, calmly and with his intuition and emotional self acting as his guide. He is often a messenger of love and opportunity. He can be the bearer of the beginning of a new relationship that bears a warning of not looking at it with too much idealism. If this represents a person, expect them to be a romantic dreamer with a flirtatious side. They will be passionate and goal oriented. They can't tolerate those who don't believe in them or their dreams. The Knight emphasizes moderation in dreaming and love.

The Queen of Cups is capable of a great deal of insight. A counselor, healer, psychic and shoulder to lean on all wrapped in one royal package. Her beauty is astonishing and her ability to attract others to her remarkable. She is also a dreamer that can lose herself in those realms away from reality. She defines herself in part by her relationships and thus puts great weight on their success. Her intuitions into others and ability to show them what is there is astonishing but she isn't always able to do the same for herself. Depending on how this card shows up in a tarot reading, it can be a sign that you are not using your intuition enough or that you are relying on it too much.

The King of Cups has a calm, glassy surface and a passionate fire burning below. He can be an advisor or healer, a fair judge, a sympathetic and compassionate ally. Wise, romantic and confident, the King is nevertheless hiding much about himself. He has motives and an agenda. He can be selfish and to those that he draws near unfaithful. At heart, he is filled with insecurity and doubt. When this card appears, use the King's tolerance and fairness to solve whatever problems you are facing. Stay between his fire and water sides to not feel the negative effects of this card. After all, it is no better to drown than it is to burn.
