Vessels Suit Meaning

Vessels are most associated with emotions, feelings (positive and negative), and romance. Vessels represent Water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, and Pisces. Water signs are generally led by their emotions and rely heavily on their “feelings” surrounding a given situation. When they allow themselves to be ruled solely by emotion, however, they can appear moody and difficult for others to understand. Depending on the deck, this suit could also be called Cups, Chalices, Goblets, Cauldrons, or Hearts, to name a few.

General Meaning of the King of Vessels

The King of Vessels symbolizes a leader who is compassionate and generous. As a court card in the suit of Vessels, he represents creativity, the unconscious mind, and of course, emotion.

When the King of Vessels appears in a reading, he reminds you that you have an uncanny ability to navigate life’s ups and downs with emotional maturity.
