The Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups tarot card

The Queen of Cups is an excellent card representing one being in control of her emotions and is a great card regarding emotions and love.

More than that she is a wise queen that understands that there is a balance between emotion and intuition and seeking out a common ground for your own inner feelings of peace.

Internally the Queen of Cups shows tender love and can reflect good signs as well for feelings of spirituality and harmony. It’s an excellent time to focus on the goals that make you happy and internal love. Pending the placement of the card, there are aspects of your life that are full and like a tapestry of warm colors adding to your own internal peacefulness. The Queen of Cups is already at her station in life and she has figured out the real and true aspects of her life that are worth her efforts. She understands that not all things not matter how well that they may sound, are good options for her. It can indicate a time for you to look at your life and ask yourself if you are truly happy. You want to be sure that the energies that you are putting out into the world are going to be ones that bring rewards back to you that matter and make you feel like you have done something worth doing.

When the Queen of Cups is present you may also want to be on the look out for an older female, usually someone that has somewhat of a mothering personality to her. She often will be lending her assistance while you are working out issues in your life and is someone that you want to be sure to be listening to. This is someone that you can trust and someone that you can know is looking out with your best interests at heart.

The Queen of Cups in Love  In love, the Queen of Cups often knows what she wants and can be a good indicator that it is time to follow your feelings or gut about a relationship or someone in particular. With the Queen of Cups showing up in your love reading you can breathe easier knowing that there is some fulfillment coming your way. Because the Queen is ruler over the realms of the emotional and spiritual, it is also wise to understand that there is little tolerance in your life right now for not being responsible emotionally.

There is an air of acceptance and empathy around you, but do not take that to mean that you can get away with whatever you want. Right now, the pressure is on your whether looking for love or in a relationship to be the open one and to be honest about your feelings. You are in control. You have the power and direction to make things happen in love at this time.

The Queen of Cups in Health  The Queen of Cups can be a concerning card when it comes to health because she often can be a person showing concern or care. Where concern and care are present, it usually doesn’t bode well for health. Now may be a good time to get your check up and just make sure everything is on track. The good news is that water is a healing element and anything you catch now should be early on and easy to heal.

The Queen of Cups in Work and Wealth  The Queen of Cups is often a good card in other areas of life, but not the best indicator for finances or wealth. Think of her as a woman not concerned with money. She likes to be comfortable, but she isn’t going out of her way to make money. For you, this doesn’t mean it’s bad news thankfully… but it doesn’t mean good news either! Now isn’t a great time to be focusing on new investments or growth in this area. The card coming up when you are superficially asking about finances can tell you that it is time for you to be focusing on other aspects of your life.

In work specifically it is a good indicator that you need to consider what you are doing to make a living. Is what you are doing paying the bills but not feeding into your happiness? If you find that you dislike your job it is a great time to find something that is more suiting to you. Be sure to balance out all of your needs in the long run. It is also good to focus on the other cards including this one in a reading to see what direction the reading as a whole is taking. Often when the Queen of Cups shows up it will be when there are concerns about happiness but a requirement is present to balance all of your current needs. Focus on what will fulfill your needs in the most areas.

Reversed Queen in a reading Reversed the Queen is still present but lacking direction. In the reversed position she can show erratic emotional states. The emotion is there but there is a lack of control and it will often show that there is a more serious underlying issue at hand. With the Queen not in control there is havoc in the castle and in your own life even you may find that you are surrounded with rumors, innuendo, or dysfunction. Now is a time to be on your guard and to walk on eggshells. Be careful how you react and ponder ways in which you are not being reasonable emotionally. Do not allow yourself to get overextended or emotionally exhausted as it is bound to cause problems in your relationships, friendships, and at work.
