Visual Description of the Queen of Wands:
The Queen of wands sits on her throne. It is decorated with two lions that face each other, symbolic of the strength she has and the passion that burns inside her. She holds a single wand that is sprouting, and around her sunflowers bloom in a lush, green garden, showing that she has great powers of manifestation and has created an environment that is fertile and leaves her happy and fulfilled. At her feet the black cat serves as a reminder that in order to build this kind of garden the Queen had to be aware of her shadow self. Even though it consists of the lesser known aspects of her being she is well acquainted with how to manage and tame them.
Divinatory Meaning of the Queen of Wands:
Upright Meaning of the Queen of Wands Tarot Card:
The Queen of Wands generally points to the more feminine energies but can still appear as a male. This card’s meaning may pertain to the querent or someone in their life. As such, if the meaning does not resonate with the querent the person referred to by this card is someone in the querent’s life.
“You are satisfied with the circumstances you have created for yourself. You have worked with your passion and shadow self in order to find a balance that really works for you. Like the Queen you now sit in the splendor of all you have created. As a result you have become a pleasant person to be around. You are not stressed and you can express yourself in a loving manner.
As a result of all you have attained you are generous with what you have and you share freely. In fact you love sharing your knowledge and wisdom as much as your wealth. You give advice in a loving and kind manner and want to help those that come to you to attain the same success you have.”
The success referred to in this card is not necessarily associated with money, it may also be Spiritual wealth.
If the querent does not resonate with this card and still finds themself lacking they should look for a person in their life that will help them understand and come to terms with their shadow side which may still be undermining them through self-sabotage.
Reversed Meaning of the Queen of Wands Tarot Card:
Reversed the Queen of Wands represents a sinister energy. It is the energy and emotions associated with the shadow self and can be related to the querent or someone in their life who will in turn bring these characteristics to light in the querent themselves.
“Nobody is perfect, we all know that, but working with your shadow side does not mean letting the feelings of jealousy and vengeance take over your actions. You may be feeling particularly sinister at this time, but rather than giving in to these feelings find a way to channel this energy toward something more constructive.
If you continue to let your shadow self run rampant you run the risk of acting in a way that you will regret in the future. If you are married you may become so vengeful that infidelity becomes a means of taking revenge. Before things spiral out of control and you start meeting with opposition, rather set yourself some clear personal boundaries and work on taming the wild energies of your shadow self.”
This card is a warning from the Universe that things are at a tipping point and should they proceed the consequences will oppose the vision the queret has for themselves. They are therefore advised to seek the source of this imbalance and right it as soon as they can.
