Queen of Cups

Overall meaning
The Queen of Cups represents a woman or women in your life who will be supportive and caring towards you. The card is a call to be aware of how you treat yourself and others or to treat people with compassion and sympathy. She can also indicate that you may be more sensitive than you let on and that harsh actions or hurtful comments affect you more than you show.

The Queen of Cups shows a woman sitting on a high protective throne by the sea. The sea, which symbolizes the emotions, is calm. She contemplates the lavishly decorated cup she holds in her hands. On her head she wears a crown. She symbolizes the beloved or adored woman. She possesses a strong inner, passionate emotional world and freely lets it be expressed.

The top of the throne, is shaped like a seashell and symbolizes an opening or the womb, which because it is fixed on the throne, is connected to the earth. An enigma surrounds this woman and her activities in the realm of emotions.

The Queen of Cups symbolizes a high degree of emotional integrity. She is every man’s dream of a woman and every young girl’s ideal!

The card indicates that by showing your feelings openly and honestly, you become beautiful.

And it doesn’t matter if it’s feelings of hate or love. Don’t worry about the people who don’t understand you. There are plenty of others to share your feelings with. The card indicates an opportunity or ability to go deep into oneself, be self-observant, thoughtful, lose oneself in one’s feelings and experience a rich emotional life and love life.
