The Queen of Cups Brings Love!
“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.” —Elizabeth Barrett Browning, English Poet
These words could be spoken by the Queen of Cups. For this card brings you the power of a queen plus the love and sensitivity of the suit of Cups.
You may be interested to know that this is MY card. When I bought my first deck, I asked which card represented me, and this is the one that appeared then, and has done ever since in the relevant place and at the appropriate tme.
In the Rider-Waite Tarot card, water — the most flexible of all elements — flows at her feet. She sits on the shore contemplating the cup in her hands. In the Old Path deck she holds a peach, a symbol of tenderness and love. And that’s what this Queen offers: unconditional love.
When this card appears in a reading, she may be inviting you to be more understanding of others. Have you been critical of someone? The Queen of Cups, sometimes called “The Listener,” asks you to hear that person. Try to understand behaviour before you judge it — unconditional love, right?
She may also be asking you to reveal the sympathetic and loving side of your personality, especially if you’re male, so be guided by her gentle hand.
Despite all these positive qualities, there’s a downside to the Queen of Cups. Her gentle and sensitive nature may make her — and you — vulnerable to such things as mistreatment, emotional manipulation, or gossip. But you can counteract this vulnerability. Use the intuition she represents. If force oppose you, listen to your inner voice.
Although I don’t read reversals, this card in reverse can signify jealousy, resentfulness and harburing a grudge. Well. she is a Scorpio lady so that’s par for the course!
This card may mean you’re falling in love or renewing love — or love is in your immediate future. If this is the case, be sure you’re in touch with your truest and deepest feelings before taking definitive action. Don’t rely too heavily on passion. Keep this Queen’s contemplative nature in mind. Don’t rush a commitment without first considering its ramifications.
Finally, let the power and positivity of the Queen of Cups enhance your confidence. She heralds great things on your horizon, so be ready to accept them with an open heart.
