King of Cups - Minor Arcana Card

Excerpt from Dark Days Tarot Guidebook by Emily Mundy:

The King of Cups

A wise and sensitive figure has presented himself to you, or soon will. Advice and assistance from him can be safely accepted from this presence in your life. This card has also to do with correct use of feeling, justice, and fair play in present circumstances. You are encouraged to emulate the honorable qualities in your father-like figure: embrace that you are worthy of support and love. Reversed, however, indicates a misuse or abuse of personal feelings and sentiments. Beware of emotional control and manipulation, avoid dishonoring yourself.

Suggested prompts:

upright: wisdom; advisability

right: backing; reinforcement

left: manipulation; high-expectations

reversed: oppression; abuse of authority
