Description and Symbolism

The Queen of Wands sits upon an amber coloured throne, that is adorned with sunflowers and lions. The sunflowers symbolize positivity, happiness and prosperity, and the lions represent strength and personal power. She wears a yellow robe which symbolizes her intellectual activity. In her left hand she holds a sunflower and in her right she holds a wand. A black cat sits at her feet. It represents awareness and psychic ability. The way she sits on the throne with her legs open indicates her self-confidence and sexual passion.

General Meaning

In the Queen of Wands, the elements Water and Fire are combined and therefore the realm of the emotional and the passions. If she does not represent a person, she can symbolize situations when you follow your passions and ambitions and when you are full of energy. If you have to face any decisions on your way, you will listen to your heart more than your head and you will also listen to your intuition to lead you to success. In a more negative sense your ambitions could be driven by negative feelings like revenge or you might have a hot temper.
