Meet the energetic, enigmatic and vibrant Queen of Wands. Queens are more concerned with the inner realm rather than the outer. Despite that, this Queen is very gregarious and sociable. Their secondary element is water that keeps them in touch with their emotions, meaning that the Queen of Wands is a little on the steamy side! This royal is the most active of the four tarot Queens, so watch out you don’t get burned as she passes through.
The Queen of Wands sits forward facing on her throne, her gaze slightly to the left. One foot peeps coquettishly from under her gown. She is dressed in gold with a silver cloak held at the neck by a fox-head clasp. She wears a golden crown that is not so elaborate as the King’s. In her left hand is a sunflower just like the ones in the Sun. In her right, she holds her staff. Her throne has carved lions at the armrests. On the back of the throne are two more engraved lions and three sunflowers. Just in front of the Queen sits a black cat staring right at the viewer.
The Queen of Wands is often found in a circle of friends. She draws people to her easily as they are charmed by her good nature, generosity, creativity and sense of humor. She is often a career woman who is incredibly enthusiastic about her work. She rarely questions her purpose in life because by adulthood she either knows exactly what she wants to do or is so secure in her abilities she assumes she will be successful whatever she attempts. On the domestic front, she is not so good. She is usually unorganized, untidy and late.
As a friend, you couldn’t wish for better. She is confident, funny, intelligent, comforting and will be your friend for life. Her downsides are that she is a bit flighty and temperamental. As a romantic partner, she is passionate and delightfully unpredictable. Her mothering skills are erratic, but no-one could deny the love she has for her children. In many cases, she will choose to forgo motherhood in favor of her career.
If the Queen of Wands appears in a general reading, she may be connected to a real person who could have influence over the current situation. She may represent the seeker or someone s/he knows. It’s possible, depending on where the card is in the spread, that the seeker needs to take on aspects of this Queen’s personality or energy to navigate their circumstances.
Reversed, the Queen of Wands sometimes indicates infidelity and promiscuity. She might also be telling you that you are too wild and out of control. Your behavior has become a false front, hiding the person you truly are.
