When reversed, the King of Cups indicates that you are still working towards complete mastery of your inner self. Emotional upset and drama may still shake you up, and you may find that your own emotions are actively hamstringing your ability to remain composed in the face of adversity. Strive for equilibrium. Don’t repress yourself, but work hard to temper your emotions when you feel a tantrum on the rise. This position may also symbolize a force in your life that is emotionally manipulating you. Carefully assess the people in your life to determine where this negative energy may be coming from. You don’t deserve it, and it’s time you take steps to break away from it in any way you can.
