Card Meaning: Queen Of Wands
Leo, Aries and Sagittarius
Age: young man less than 35 years of age
Appearance: fair hair, grey or blue eyes
Feminine side of the Queen with fiery character of the Wands suit offer very
magnetic, happy and charming energy. The problem is that the clash of fire and
water produces a fog. Indeed, this energy is somewhat elusive and unclear in its
nature. While she is warm, communicative and open, she can also be very shy and
passive. We can see the sunflower in her hand, we can assume it is directed
towards the Sun, the same direction where the Queen is looking. It is possible
that this person tends to look only to the positive, sunny side of the
situations. Maybe sometimes she is avoiding to see the situations thoroughly.
Two lions on her throne further emphasize the importance of the fire element,
the Sun and the astrological sign of Leo, we can almost feel her radiance as we
see her golden clothes. This kind of person will always go after her goals with
great enthusiasm no matter what circumstances are in the play and how strong
opposition is. We can also see that her throne doesn't have a top, a sign of
endless possibilites. On the right side of the throne we can see a barren rock,
indicating that this person is tougher than she looks. On the left hand side we
see the possible outlines of the Egyptian pyramids, the motif we already saw in
the Knight of Wands, indicating the passion for adventures. Probably the most
intriguing motif on the card is somewhat disturbing black cat sitting right next
to the throne. Traditionally it is not considered a very good omen, it shows a
glimpse of the dark side of this card. Black cat is also a symbol of Venus, the
planet that bring sensual and carnal aspect to this card.
Positive: open, sensual, loving, magnetic personality, wise, happy and positive,
sincere, passionate and enthusiastic, spontaneity, independent.
domineering, jelous, overbearing, vindictive, narrow-minded, possesive.
The Wands throughout this suit are always in leaf, as it is a suit of life
and animation. Emotionally and otherwise, the Queen's personality corresponds to
that of the King, but is more magnetic. Divinatory Meanings: A dark
woman, countrywoman, friendly, chaste, loving, honourable. If the card beside
her signifies a man, she is well disposed towards him; if a woman, she is
interested in the Querent. Also, love of money, or a certain success in
business. Reversed: Good, economical, obliging, serviceable. Signifies
also--but in certain positions and in the neighbourhood of other cards tending
in such directions--opposition, jealousy, even deceit and infidelity.
