Queen of Wands
The Queen of Wands is the Tarot card that represents the emotionally mature female. We have an exceptional ability to balance our hearts and minds, though we do have strong emotions. Which is why children and even older members of the family turn to us for guidance whenever they have ego clashes or are unable to resolve disputes among themselves. We have gained this kind of maturity after a lot of real-life experience, not through mere book-reading, and we realise that it is useless to go on the offensive when confronted with hot-blooded people, that it is far more effective to calm tempers with soothing words. Home and family are of utmost importance to us. We have strong opinions but give equal importance to the opinions of other family members as well. We are far-sighted, and when we set our minds to something, nothing can stop us from achieving it. We are quite realistic, though, when setting our goals. We are upright people and will stand by our values regardless of consequences. Even when it comes to choosing a career, we would rather opt for jobs that may not pay too well as long as they align with our values. We are very attracted to spirituality and try to inculcate spiritual ideas in people around us as well. A reading of this card indicates that it is because of this connection with the higher that we never run down the ideas and abilities of others, and can create a harmonious atmosphere around us.
Each of the four suits of the Minor Arcana is divided further. Four Court Cards are extracted from each Minor Arcana suit, and they are classified under each category – The King, Queen, Knight and Page, signifying their specific traits. This makes the total Court Cards as 16. The King is creative, inspiring and bold, and wants to create a lasting impact on the world. The Queen is attractive, energetic, cheerful and self-assured; she does not impose, but subtly influences circumstances. The Knights may be termed as extremists, they express their qualities to the utmost limit. For instance, if they are cautious, they will be cautious to a fault, weighing all the pros and cons meticulously before taking a decision. The Page motivates us to enjoy the thrill of mental and even financial challenges.
