Synopsis of the Queen

The Queen is the essential feminine symbol in the Tarot deck but like the King, can refer to persons of any gender.  The Queen is a complement to the King and indeed, represents strength and control in its symbolism as much as the King does.

With Queen, we are reminded of how the essence of life is ongoing in a never-ending cycle of birth and death.  There is a constant ebb and flow of all energy and the Queen seems to have her finger on the pulse of it

The Queen is every mother, the mother we all are as well as our own mother.  She suggests that throughout life, we are in a constant process of rebirthing and recreating ourselves.

Queen reminds us that while other people may have given us our start in life, we bear the responsibility for who we choose to be, regardless of our birth and early life.

Embody the Queen and provide yourself with whatever you require to nurture and thrive.

Upright Tarot Card Meaning:

The Queen of Wands is a woman who loves company as much as she values her independence.

Smart and sassy, she flies through life with great ideas which she loves to use to help people around her.

Once you have gained her trust, she is unfailingly loyal and devoted - in friendship as well as love.

She loves deeply and passionately and her sense of humour and fun lead to good times.

While she doesn't appreciate or tolerate possessive behaviour, she needs admiration and a little reassurance to feel truly comfortable.                  

Reversed Tarot Card Meaning:

Naturally giving, the Queen of Wands can be guilty of making promises she doesn't keep.

She means well but her flightiness over time will make some friends not take her seriously.

The same loyalty that makes her a wonderful friend is also present in her less loving moods.

She can hold jealousy and anger long after the original offense has been committed.

Sometimes, the Queen of Wands reversed can stand for a slightly unstable person who wants only to create conflict. Stirring up trouble is commonplace with this person. Keep her at a distance or her drama will absorb you.
