Each Thursday I choose one reader's comment from Intuitive Tuesday and pull an additional card for more clarity...so check back on Thursday to see what cards come up.
Isn't the Queen of Cups a beautiful card? This is again from one of my favorite decks, The Gilded Tarot (book and deck available from Amazon). I use this deck most often with my clients. The artwork and symbolism really speak to me.
The Queen of Cups is a charming, compassionate woman who is highly intuitive and very nurturing. She has the energy of a mother and can also symbolize the side of you who is a romantic lover. If you are in a relationship, your significant other probably sees you as his Queen of Cups.
Cups symbolize your feelings and emotions so this queen is very open to how she feels, how others feel and how to best take care of herself and others. She is loving, emotional, creative and spiritual.
I believe each person possesses the traits of all four suits. That is, we have the emotional feel of the Cups, the intellectual feel of the Swords, the material/business feel of the Pentacles and the extroverted/energetic feel of the Wands. We may have one queen that symbolizes us most of the time, but we can also flow back and forth, depending on what role we are in.
In pulling the Queen of Cups today, you are being asked to bring out your Cups (emotional and feeling) qualities. It might also mean that you have been in this role a lot lately and pulling this card confirms that this approach has been ideal for the situations you have been facing.
Queens can sometimes symbolize your mother. If today's card feels like your mother, perhaps it is suggesting reaching out to your mom to let her know how much you love and appreciate her.
For me...the Queen of Cups symbolizes my role as a loving wife. My DH and I can become so busy that we forget that first and foremost, we are partners in all of this.
Knowing this...I plan to take the clue from the Queen of Cups and do two things:
What will you do with the Queen of Cups information? Do tell...
- I'll set up a date with my DH so we can spend some alone, romantic time together.
- I'll call my mom (and two other women in my life who are mother-like) and let them know how much I love and appreciate them.
