Episode 46: King or Knight of Cups
2 days ago
Here is the Lord of the Waves and Waters! It's the King of Cups, as he's called in Rider Waite Smith - or the Knight of Cups, as he's called in Thoth. (For a broad overview of the courts be sure to check out Episode 32, the King/Knight of Wands episode.) Associated with the 'fiery' part of water, his is an ephemeral and brilliant nature, a reflected charisma. Of all the heroic leaders of the courts, his calling is the most spiritual. What is the nature of his mystical quest? What rainbows does he chase as he races over the sparkling sea? In this episode we speak about his relationship to the 7 of Swords and the 8 and 9 of Cups, as well as to the major arcana: The Star and the Moon. We consider the will to dream, the gifts of poetry, the call to chivalry. We speak of gurus and diplomats, peacocks and snakes, Charlemagne and the Suicide King, fishy feet and wavy crowns, Pegasus and Bellerophon, the Grail quest and the elixir of immortality.
