Prince of Cups - Book of Thoth court card

Prince of Cups  divinatory meanings

The Prince of Cups represents the airy part of Water. The symbolism is Scorpio, as he rules the last decanate of Libra going into the first two decanates of Scorpio. An intense secret nature – on the surface he is calm, but underneath is intense passion, and as a result, people do not trust him.

Book of Thoth

The moral characteristics of the person pictured in the Prince of Cups are subtlety, secret violence, and craft. He is intensely secret, an artist in all his ways. On the surface he appears calm and imperturbable, but this is a mask of the most intense passion. He is on the surface susceptible to external influences, but he accepts them only to transmute them to the advantage of his secret designs. He is thus completely without conscience in the ordinary sense of the word, and is therefore usually distrusted by his neighbours. They feel they do not, and can never, understand him. Thus he inspires unreasonable fear. He is in fact perfectly ruthless. He cares intensely for power, wisdom, and his own aims. He feels no responsibility to others, and although his abilities are so immense, he cannot be relied upon to work in harness.

Passion lies underneath the exterior of the Prince of Cups.
