The King of Cups sits high in the trees, the only one of the court who has left the seashore. She looks kindly at the bird who was resurrected in his hands. A mystical interpretation makes her a miraculous healer. In a more everyday setting, she is someone who gives second chances.
Seen in a positive light, this King is fair, charitable, and generous. On the negative side, she can be selfish and manipulative, raising herself too highly above others.
