“He stands erect by bending over the fallen. He rises by lifting others.” Robert Green Ingersoll
If you have come to the realization that you have been shouldering the burden of life by yourself for far too long, then today you may receive the support you need. The King of Cups may appear as a father figure, professional, trusted friend or advisor. He may work in a creative industry or in a care-taking capacity. His emotional stability enables him to accept extra responsibility and he is likely to act with your best interest in mind. On the other hand, it could be you who is offering assistance, comfort, or protection for another. As a result, you may be involved in negotiations, working to impress someone or to improve a situation. This card also triggers intense desire and you may find yourself magnetically drawn to someone because of the deep feelings you share.
Of course, the King can also operate in the shadows. If he does, he can be lazy, insincere, manipulative and self-indulgent in looking out only for himself. He may not be capable of maintaining an intimate relationship. A self-professed gigolo, he may be sexually exploitative or play with the emotions of others merely for selfish gain. He may also possessive addictive behaviors he uses as a means of escapism from responsibility–drugs, alcohol, excess. Obviously, should you take on these traits or meet them in others, your relationships will be complicated and unfulfilling. You will need to be careful of operating in extremes where you become either excessively emotional or emotionally oblivious.
Today’s energy requires that you love, honor and support yourself, your feelings and your relationships.
