King of Cups

Description

Seated upon his casual but none the less official throne, we see the King of Cups in a reflective moment. His position commands those who are in his presence to acknowledge his authority, but he entertains with friendly informality. His mind, given to natural and often indulgent thoughts, may wander, but all who know him grant him these distractions, in hopes of winning one of his delightful smiles.

Symbolism

Crown, throne, and Cup say "King!" and so he is. 

Card Meaning

Desire, transformation, power. "I desire" says the King of Cups, and he can be aggressive, ambitious, and competitive in seeking his goals. He is emotional, passionate, and warmly sensual. In his heart his deepest desire is for spiritual liberation, both for himself, and those he intuitively knows strive within for a similar condition.

Artistic Media

Coloured pencils on drawing paper. Title done with calligraphy pen.

Artist's Bio

Fulgour began studying Tarot in 1969, and Runes shortly after. He is a 1978 graduate of Southern Illinois University, where he majored in English Literature of the Renaissance. He and his wife Christine, a native of Scarborough, England, make their home in Belvidere, Illinois, along with their very amazing kitty, Madeline.
