Queen of Cups Tarot Card Meanings
The Kings and Queens can be very useful in a reading to indicate the characteristics and personality description of a mature man or woman appearing in a situation, it can help you to be quite clear in your interpretation. Everyone tends to have a mixture of all the cards, similar to our astrology chart, we all have a balance of the elements, but we also tend to have dominant factors, which is what we look for. In daily life and conversation, we often stereotype people when describing to others and this approach is similar.
Some readers like to use the Kings and Queens to represent a facet of your personality but I like to use them to identify specific people of a particular gender, so the Queens would always be women and the Kings always men (regardless of sexual orientation). In terms of astrological signs, I usually only use astrology sun signs to identify people in email readings, since we don’t have the advantage of a two-way conversation in a normal reading situation. Cups would be water signs, Cancer, Scorpio, Pisces.
Kind, caring and thoughtful, most people like to think they have these attributes and they’re not completely limited to those of the Cups suit, but the Queen of Cups tends to have a very sensitive nature. Whilst most people dislike confrontation or dealing with unpleasant situations, the Queen of Cups will go out of her way to avoid them, which in itself can sometimes cause problems.
They are lovely people and very easy to be around but they can also be worriers and not usually good with self-assertion or letting you know if they disagree. At whatever age they have a wonderful childlike quality but it can also lean to the downside of sulking, passive-aggressive, or being overly dependent on others. On the plus side, they are deeply caring and will notice if you’re not quite yourself and happily sympathise with your problems for hours!
Tarot Card Combinations: All the Kings and Queens have positive and negative traits so within the reading the individual meaning is neutral, depicting a particular person, and relying on surrounding cards to see how they impact the seeker. In future positions it may describe someone you don’t know yet but who will be important to a situation coming in. Multiple Kings and Queens can indicate that lots of people are involved in a situation.
