King of Cups

Tarot card meaning:

A king sits on his throne surrounded by a rather turbulent sea. A fish leaps out of the water, and there is a ship in the distance. The king holds his scepter in one hand, a large cup in the other. A golden fish is suspended from a chain around his neck. He represents balance and peace, arts and science.
This card should be chosen for a man with light-brown hair and hazel eyes.

Arthur E. Waite - The Pictorial Key to the Tarot :

He holds a short sceptre in his left hand and a great cup in his right; his throne is set upon the sea; on one side a ship is riding and on the other a dolphin is leaping. The implicit is that the Sign of the Cup naturally refers to water, which appears in all the court cards.
