A phenomenon (Greek: φαινόμενoν, from φαίνω phainō, "I show"), plural phenomena, is any observable occurrence. Phenomena are often, but not always, understood as 'appearances' or 'experiences'. ("Phenomenon")
The Princess of Cups represents the earthy part of Water; in particular, the faculty of crystallization.
She represents the power of Water to give substance to idea, to support life, and to form the basis of chemical combination.
She is represented as a dancing figure, robed in a flowing garment on whose edges crystals are seen to form.
For her crest she wears a swan with open wings. The symbolism of this swan reminds one of the swan in oriental philosophy which is the word AUM or AUMGN, which is the symbol of the entire process of creation. . . .
The character of the Princess is infinitely gracious. All sweetness, all voluptuousness, gentleness, kindness and tenderness are in her character.

The Princess of Cups represents the earth in the waters of Briah, an island floating in the groundless seas.
She is far from her father's flames and her mother's depth, and she lacks the researching spirit of her brother. . . .
On the dark side, the island can turn out to be a castle made of sand, sinking in the seas of irrationality and daydreaming.
