The Knight of Cups is not unlike the fiery attack of rain or springs. He rules the Zodiac from 21st degree of Aquarius to the 20th degree of Pisces. All Thoth Knights and Tarot Kings are the personifications of the 2nd Sephiroth of Chokmah.
The fluorescence characteristics of the personality signified by this card are surprisingly passive, as dictated by the Zodiacal attribution of Aquarius and Pisces connection (Feb.9th to March 10th). With the qualities of Venus, he is a graceful dilettante (a weak Jupiter). Passively amicable and quick to respond to attraction but the stimulation fades away as he is not very enduring. Emotionally triggered by outside influence, this person has no real material depth of character. The Knight of Cups has an undeniable innocence and purity that is hardly clouded by his ill dignified sensuality, idleness, and untruthful nature. In fact, at times he may be so superficial that it is hard to reach any depth in him.
This card represents Dewi, the ancient lord of the Abyss, who is also known to the Irish as Bran the blessed who later became the Christianized Fisher King or Rich Fisher of the British, named Bron. He represents ageless power and strength, a reliable protector of the needy with a quality of irresistible force underlying a calm surface.
There is great difficulty in rightly mating water with Fire, as the swift violent nature of fire (Knight of Wands) ill suits a character that is naturally as placid as water. It is a rare personality indeed that has mastered the balance, so most often we find the personality mismanaging his affairs and unless good fortune attends him, his career and life is littered with a trail of failure and disaster. There is a mental "civil war" here, and this can lead to depressions, and/or schizophrenia. The abuse of stimulants, alcohol, and narcotics is not uncommon with such a personality. As always the case, the surrounding cards will help the Reader decide the positive or ill dignified nature of this card and often within the Reading is recommended the nature of correcting the unwanted behavior of this ill dignity. All in all, a very fun bubbly, bright person to be around---as long as you show attraction, to stimulate his/her attention. Good fun for short visits!The Core of this type of personality archetype is found on the Tarot Wheel of Birth dates- from February 9th to March 10th. Anyone born during this time is associated with the Knight of Cups personality type. This is used as a "Significator" card in a Celtic Cross reading.
The Tarot of The Ages-King of Cups, follows traditional tarot in the naming of this card, that is comparable to the Thoth Knight of Cups. His head dress is much like a peacock's tail, multi colored and spread wide. He holds his cup, the symbol of the element of water. He maybe Mayan in appearance; However, in his hand is the Phoenix Wand of the Western Magic initiate linking him to the Western magic Knight of Cups. This Mayan image is the King who governs union, and separation, delight and need, flood and drought. The protector of the weak and master of the strong. Everything attributed to the Thoth Knight of Cups, is attributed to this King of Cups, as an personality archetype.
