Queen of Cups Tarot Card Description

Traditionally, the court cards (kings, queens, knights and pages) in the tarot pack are ascribed to physical characteristics. When using this approach, The Queen of Cups is said to represent a woman who is over thirty-five years of age who has golden brown hair and blue eyes.

Upright Meaning

When the Queen of Cups appears in a tarot spread, emotions are the centre of your situation. Fortunately, if she is upright you have the emotional insight to deal with whatever comes your way. In family and romantic matters, you have the wherewithal to overcome any issues that require sensitivity and understanding. Should you work in the caring professions, your increased empathy will enable any interventions you make to be particularly successful - as long as you don’t allow yourself to get too involved. The Queen of Cups brings social sweetness, as people are drawn to your warm and friendly demeanour. You could even be lucky enough to come to the attention of a warm, caring individual who will be able to help you overcome any emotional issues - provided you are able to open your heart to them. If you are fortunate enough to meet this very special person, it is likely to be a sign that you are about to take some important steps along your life’s path. Equally, it could be you who helps someone else by lending them a listening ear. If you are concerned about an abuse of animal or human rights, you could find yourself becoming involved in a successful campaign to right these wrongs, either as an individual or as part of a group. The Queen of Cups is also a reminder to alpha, go-getting types, that they need to cultivate a softer and gentler side from time to time and open themselves to the rainbow colours of their emotions.

Reverse Meaning

There is nothing wrong with expressing your emotions, but when The Queen of Cups appears reversed in your tarot reading, it can be a sign that you have taken several steps too far. Could it be potential victims duck and run for cover, as your mood swings like a demolition-ball clobbering the unwary with the force of your angst? OK, so perhaps you are really all sweetness and light. If so, keep an eye out for someone whose over-sensitive nature can make them unstable and sneaky, even if they seem full of saccharine smiles and winning wiles. Don’t let your emotional connection to someone lead you to ignore the fact that they can be as destructive as a hurricane when the mood hits them.
