The Queen of Wands
When one begins to study the tarot and look up the card meanings, the court cards are usually assigned to actual people who share the physical traits on the card. The Queen of Wands is usually assigned to a fair-haired woman with blue or hazel eyes. The Queen of Wands can absolutely stand for a person like that but if you look a bit closer, the court cards offer so much more information.
Imagine what it means to be a Queen. Certainly, a queen is of a certain station in life with a good deal of power. Wands represent fire, passion, excitement and energy. Within the Queen of Wands we see a woman who is respected and revered, who has control over her ability to funnel her passions. Imagine if you were able to direct your energies in such a precise way. That would mean any passion project you worked on would be seen through to its perfect completion. She has total control. The Queen of Wands is also thought of as one of the most sexual females in tarot.
I pulled the Queen of Wands yesterday and I kept her in mind all day. At yoga, I approached my practice confidently (a queen never displays anything less than confidence) even if I did sweat buckets and wobble around on my mat. Later that morning, I passed my driving written test and received a driving permit! I don’t think I’d have survived the seven stages of hell at the DMV if I hadn’t been exuding Queen of Wand energy. The Queen of Wands even stayed with me as I hit the playground, supermarket, as I vacuumed and cooked. Hmmmm, seems the only thing I’m missing is my queen’s court and household staff. Perhaps, someday . . .
Picking a card a day can be such a pleasure if you assume that card and all of its wonderful qualities with you. I like to think we all carry each of the 78 cards within us. Conjuring up a particular tarot card is a great way of giving yourself an extra power boost on any given day. So, go ahead, get your deck out and pick a card, any card. Let it remind you of the magic and amazing things you are capable of at any given moment.
