In honour of Mother’s day I am going to reflect on the personalities of the Queens.
They are first of all women.
As representations of human beings the queens are multi faceted, but here we will keep it simple.
Every woman contains traits of all the queens, but will identify more with one or two of them.
Since life is full of surprises we all end up playing many characters at different stages of our lives.
Let’s start with the Queen of Wands.
She is the most confident. She is the life of the party. She is very active and knows how to live intensely. She is ambitious, warm and affectionate. She is a born leader who goes after what she wants. She works hard but knows how to have fun.
As a mother she is a great role model. She will drive her kids to sport activities and tournaments. She may even be a coach or instructor. She will inspire her kids to dream big and work hard to make their dreams reality.
Her passion is her biggest asset, but she needs to keep it in check to avoid becoming an overbearing prima donna, too arrogant to consider her children’s own needs and desires.
The Queen of Cups is an extremely loving woman.
She likes to feel connected and at peace. She is a good listener and very observant. She likes beauty and harmony. She is creative, sensitive and intuitive. She wants to get along with everyone.
Conflicts drain her and she avoids them as much as possible. She is a very caring and sweet mom. Her kids feel loved and heard. She raises loving, sensitive and compassionate children.
Since she wears her heart on her sleeve and cares so deeply, she easily gets hurt and disillusioned.
By nature she is not likely to directly confront who has done her wrong. She is more likely to get depressed, moody, passive aggressive or manipulative.
The Queen of Pentacles is the most practical queen.
She enjoys simple pleasures. She will cook healthy and tasty meals. She will surround herself with things that look nice and make her life easier. Her home is her castle. It will look nice, warm and welcoming. She loves a full house. She will do her best to give her children love and a stable, comfortable life. Her door is always open to family, friends and pets. She is a beacon of light when life gets stormy. Her favourite sound is laughter.
She needs stability and security and therefore she appreciates a safety net. She will occasionally lose a good, but risky opportunity. She prefers to play it safe. She may appear stingy, too set in her ways, stubborn and reluctant to try new things. She will adapt when she needs to, because she is resilient, but she will fight it first.
Last but not least we have the Queen of Swords.
She is fiercely independent and extremely smart. She is curious, open minded, values logic and fairness. She knows how to communicate effectively. She is not afraid to ask the tough questions or make the difficult choices. She does not need to be a mother to feel fulfilled. She is very ambitious and driven and she can easily dedicate her life to a career she loves or a cause she believes in. As a mother she will raise kids that know how to think for themselves. Who will not be afraid to question authorities, or the way things are done. Human beings that will study hard and search for ways to improve life for everyone. People that know how to stand on their own two feet.
She may lack warmth and sometimes be a tad too harsh and critical.
In my opinion the world needs all these queens and all women should be free to express or try traits of all of them when they see fit.
Let’s celebrate all mothers, but also all the women in our lives.
In conclusion, I apologize for not writing the card of the week for quite some time. We are going through strange times and I find it too hard to guide many with just one card. I hope you understand.
Please stay safe and be well.
