My personal 2-Card reading for 06/04/2019: King of Cups (Reversed) & 6 of Wands



The reversed King of Cups indicates that you are focusing your attention on your innermost feelings. You are discovering the emotions stored in your subconscious mind and how these emotions affect you. Through this work, you hope to gain a stronger sense of control over your emotional well-being so that your feelings don’t steer you away from living your best life. You may read more self-help books, journaling or seeking the support of a trained counsellor or hypnotherapist so you can journey deep into your subconscious mind.

When the reversed King of Cups appears in your spread, you may be more prone to emotional upset and drama. Others may trigger you or push your buttons HARD, even to where you worry you might lose it and throw an emotional tantrum. You may feel moody, depressed, anxious and unpredictable. You may also lack in self-compassion, beating yourself up over small things that have gone wrong. If this resonates, seek to understand the root cause of your emotions and bring your conscious awareness to the impact they are having on your life. Pay attention to your emotional balance and find your place of calm and compassion. Other people may trigger these emotional responses in you, but it’s up to you to stay in control!

The reversed King of Cups could show that you are repressing your emotions and withdrawing from the outside world because you fear what may happen if you were to confront your feelings head-on. Your feelings are bottling up inside you, and you are at risk of an emotional outburst if the pressure gets too much. If this resonates, consider finding a therapist to help you to work through your feelings in a safe environment.

At worst, the reversed King of Cups can represent someone who is vindictive and has a talent for being able to punish others through emotional manipulation. He uses emotional blackmail to get his way and to push his personal agenda. He leaves you feeling uncertain about yourself and as if you are the problem, not him. This only leads to (undeserved) emotional instability within you. If this sounds like someone you have met in the past, you still have work to do in releasing yourself from his controlling forces.


Introduction: The King of Cups reversed is about balanced male and feminine energy; he holds all the positive qualities of both masculine and feminine. There can be an element of risk-taking energy when he appears.

General: When you receive the reversed King of Cups, think deeply about what your most important dreams and desires are, and how you might go after them. This King should inspire you to take risks, when necessary.

Work: At times the reversed King of Cups can point to an upcoming emotional outburst from a man at work. This can be unsettling at first, but after some time, everyone involved should have learned something positive and important about the situation(s). Don’t take this outburst personally, even if it is directed at you. But the issues/the outburst may need to be “unpacked” with him, later, to get to the bottom of things.

Love: In general when the reversed King of cups appears, the news is very good in the love realm. If you are looking for love, this card can point to a person coming into your life who is ready to let go of everything to pursue his dreams of love and happiness. It’s a very romantic card. Be open.

Finances: The reversed King can often point to someone who is prepared to risk everything, including financially, in order to pursue a dream. There is nothing wrong with this provided one has a solid plan and is willing to work to bring things about; however, if the “dream” is getting rich at the gambling tables, this is a big problem. Watch out for these tendencies and make sure that you protect yourself.

Health: With regard to health questions, particularly if you are under a doctors’ care, the reversed King of Cups reminds us to trust that the healers in our lives are there for a reason. Be cautious (and then some) when it comes to “alternative healing” for serious conditions, if you have a diagnosis of one. (If not, this card does not mean that such a diagnosis is forthcoming.) Treat your body with care and compassion. Learn as much as you can about supporting health and treatment options.

Spirituality: The reversed King of Cups can indicate a tendency to be cavalier when it comes to spiritual seeking. It’s important to think for yourself, and explore for your own self, when he appears. Don’t follow a flock, and above all, think deeply many, many times, before making major life changes to, say, join an ascetic spiritual community in Tibet when you’ve never previously left the country. If that’s where your spirit calls you, that’s fine, but be cautious. Take one step at a time. There is no need to hurry. You might repent hasty decisions made on the basis of a short-lived “spiritual” insight or because of a charismatic spiritual “leader.”


The Six of Wands appears when you have reached an important milestone or achieved a significant goal, and you are confident, self-assured, and successful. You harnessed your strengths and talents to bring about a happy outcome in your endeavours and made it through the chaos of the Five of Wands, minimising your distractions and focusing on the task at hand. Yes, there were challenges along the way, but you overcame them by concentrating your energies on the one target.

The Six of Wands suggests that not only have you achieved your goals, but you are also receiving public acknowledgement for your efforts. You may have recently received an award, acclaim or recognition from your peers for your work. It may even be just a pat on the back, but this attention is a big boost to your confidence and gives you the strength to continue your endeavours.

The Six of Wands also encourages you to put yourself out there and be proud of what you achieved. Shout your successes from the rooftop and set it all out there for others to see and cheer you on. Be open to receiving love and support from your biggest cheerleaders, who are energised by seeing you succeed. Now is your time to shine!

The Six of Wands is a positive encouragement to believe in who you are and your accomplishments so far. Have faith in what you’ve done and how others will receive it. Do not let fear or guilt stand in the way of your success. You ought to be proud! Hold your head up high and know you‘re worthy of admiration.

While the Six of Wands marks an important milestone, keep in mind that you’re not quite at the finish line just yet. You still have some way to go, and challenges may sit on the path ahead – but take heart knowing you have the support of those around you and they are here to back you 100%
