For some reason, I seem to feel drawn to the black cat, sitting protectively in front of this Queen. I’m looking at it’s eyes, vigilant and alert. It feels like this cat is expecting company for her Queen. I’ve just noticed that the Queen seems to be looking in the same direction as the cat. There they both are, expectant as ever, as someone known to them is on their way. Someone who can help them, or someone who they can help. This is a generous lady, this Queen. Her cat also knows this and sits ready to protect her in case her generosity should be abused.
I’m now looking at what appears to be two lion’s heads that may serve as rests at either side of her. They provide much needed support, while keeping an eye in opposite directions, helping to ensure this Queen’s safety.
In one hand, she holds her Wand, symbolising her authority, while in the other hand a flower, symbolising nurturing and creativity. On her crown appears to be a wreath, which reminds me of life cycles, death and rebirth. It’s presence within her crown suggests to me mastery over these things.
This card represents a powerful creative force, with the gentleness of feminine strength. This is a Queen of great emotional integrity, a driving force for something better. You either are her or have her around you. Who is she? How does she impact on your life?
There’s a very generous and gregarious feel about this lady. She helps from a place of unconditional love, which is after all, the most powerful force in the Universe.
When we see this card come up, it’s often at times when we’ve forgotten about the support network that we have around us. It’s all too easy to succumb to the temptations of negative thinking and all to easy to justify them with the obvious evidences around us. It’s harder sometimes to see the light at the end of the tunnel.
These are the times that the Universe brings us someone like the Queen of Wands.
