Sunday 13th October 2019: King of Cups

Yesterday’s Five of Swords depicted a hermetic figure gathering swords beside the ocean as if to add a watery element to the predominant element of air. Today’s arcana offers the same elements but with a different emphasis with the King (air) of Cups (water).

The King of Cups appears with the full moon which, according to sidereal astrology, is still in watery Pisces (based on the actual size of the constellations), and so by attuning ourselves to the spirit of the arcana we will at the same time be entering into an harmonious relationship with the full moon.

And what is the spirit of the King of Cups? I refer to the spirit of arcana as the Antonine spirit, after Anthony in Shakespeare’s Anthony and Cleopatra. Cleopatra says of Anthony that his delights were delphinius, and when he delighted in something he was like a dolphin swimming in the sea, that is, he was perfectly attuned to the environment in which he found himself.
