Tarot Card Interpretation & Meaning - King Of Cups Reversed

King Of Cups Reversed
Introduction: The King of Cups reversed is about balanced male and feminine energy; he holds all the positive qualities of both masculine and feminine. There can be an element of risk-taking energy when he appears.

General: When you receive the reversed King of Cups, think deeply about what your most important dreams and desires are, and how you might go after them. This King should inspire you to take risks, when necessary.

Work: At times the reversed King of Cups can point to an upcoming emotional outburst from a man at work. This can be unsettling at first, but after some time, everyone involved should have learned something positive and important about the situation(s). Don't take this outburst personally, even if it is directed at you. But the issues/the outburst may need to be "unpacked" with him, later, to get to the bottom of things.

Love: In general when the reversed King of cups appears, the news is very good in the love realm. If you are looking for love, this card can point to a person coming into your life who is ready to let go of everything to pursue his dreams of love and happiness. It's a very romantic card. Be open.


Finances: The reversed King can often point to someone who is prepared to risk everything, including financially, in order to pursue a dream. There is nothing wrong with this provided one has a solid plan and is willing to work to bring things about; however, if the "dream" is getting rich at the gambling tables, this is a big problem. Watch out for these tendencies and make sure that you protect yourself.

Health: With regard to health questions, particularly if you are under a doctors' care, the reversed King of Cups reminds us to trust that the healers in our lives are there for a reason. Be cautious (and then some) when it comes to "alternative healing" for serious conditions, if you have a diagnosis of one. (If not, this card does not mean that such a diagnosis is forthcoming.) Treat your body with care and compassion. Learn as much as you can about supporting health and treatment options.

Spirituality: The reversed King of Cups can indicate a tendency to be cavalier when it comes to spiritual seeking. It's important to think for yourself, and explore for your own self, when he appears. Don't follow a flock, and above all, think deeply many, many times, before making major life changes to, say, join an ascetic spiritual community in Tibet when you've never previously left the country. If that's where your spirit calls you, that's fine, but be cautious. Take one step at a time. There is no need to hurry. You might repent hasty decisions made on the basis of a short-lived "spiritual" insight or because of a charismatic spiritual "leader."
