The King of Cups
Here sits the King of Cups on his throne, with a fish shaped amulet. He is a tarot card that shows generosity, control and emotional balance. He is a creative spirit that thrives in the calm waters surrounding his throne and the fish amulet is a representation of this.

The Queen of Cups
Here sits the Queen of Cups, on her throne, on the edge of the ocean. The water lapping at her feet symbolises unconscious feelings. Her position is a clear representation that she sits between shore and sea, this translates as thoughts and feelings. Her feet never touch the water to symbolise her looking at her thoughts and feelings from the outside.
The unusual looking cup she holds, is representative of an angel. It is clearly closed showing unconscious controlled thoughts.The Queen is enjoying her time alone and taking it as a time to think.
The Knight of Cups
We move away from the theme of the throne and see our trusty knight proudly riding a beautiful white steed, carrying a cup. He moves steadily forward demonstrating peace and calmness.
In all tarot a horse represents drive, energy and power. The white colour of this horse represents spirituality, light and purity.
Of all the knight tarot cards, the knight of cups is the most feminine. This indicates that he is in touch with his own emotions and intuition.
The Page of Cups
Here stands the Page of Cups at the seashore, wearing a tunic decorated with a floral print holding a golden cup. The page looks surprised to see the fish peeking out of the cup and is stymied by not being able to drink from the cup.
