VII of Cups Symbolism

I'm taking a serious look at VII Cups symbolism and imagery. The traditional meaning of this card has never really satisfied. I think it is more than just a "pie in the sky fantasy." For instance what is the meaning of the red halo around the head draped in a white cloth? Who is the man standing in front of all the cups, and what is the meaning of the different characters emerging from the cups? And most important, what does this card say to the querent when it shows up in a love reading. Dragons, snakes, heads, jewels, victory wreath, jewels, castle......all emerging out of an individual cup.....seems very mysterious to me. I'm considering interpreting this card as someone trying to control the reality of the querent...someone like the Magician.

I'm referring to the VII of Cups in the Rider Waite deck.
