Queen of Wands – Tarot Love Relationship Outcome & Reversed


Queen of Wands

Queen of Wands – Love and Relationship Outcome

The Queen of Wands in a Tarot reading is someone who will be friendly towards you and is highly intuitive, however, she is also materialistic and this could influence her choice in relationships. She can be a very good business partner and helpful to you with regard to any joint commercial venture.

In the reversed position she is not someone that you would wish to cross!

Queen of Wands- As a Woman, Outcome and Feelings

A woman of economical habits, wealthy or desiring wealth, steadily resolved to get at riches, certainly not ‘cheap’; more or less artistic, may be a painter, dancer or musician; she is faithful, but may be subject to moods and changes of taste. Honesty may be certified, but not without a certain amount of egotism, e.g. materialism. She is very passive and cool, phlegmatic and not easily to be roused to passion, if ever. This of course makes the impression of ‘chaste.’ There is, however, a solid sort of sensuality. In strong cases there is real virtue. Banking, agriculture, art, capital, money. The latter more to be seen as ‘money-matters’ than as ‘ready money,’ and rather papers of value, shares, bonds, banknotes, than coined money. A. E. Thierens, [1930]

The Wands throughout this suit are always in leaf, as it is a suit of life and animation. Emotionally and otherwise, the Queen’s personality corresponds to that of the King, but is more magnetic.

General Book of the Tarot

By A. E. Thierens, [1930]

Queen of Wands

Country woman, honest, economical woman, honourable and loving, virtuous, chaste, good and inclined to be friendly and interest herself in the querent. The card may also indicate love of money, economy and gifts.

Queen of Air on the Second house of economy, money, country life and art. Some of the traditional renderings certify this remarkably well. Now what does a queen in general mean? In divination a woman simply, but in general, as the king is the head of the hierarchy or suit as the spiritual synthesis and masculine representative, so the queen may be said to be the material synthesis and the chief female representative. So the queen of wands must be, apart from all personality, the representative of banking, exchange, agriculture and of the arts in general, painting, music and dancing in particular. In Waite‘s picture of this card, a cat is seen before the feet of this queen: a remarkable indication of the house in which, as astrology teaches, the moon is exalted. It indicates rightly, that in weak cases there may be some falsehood in the nature of persons indicated by it. Cajolery, but apt to turn into peevishness. Taurus-people are generally good-humoured and good-natured, patient, benefic for their surroundings in material things, but also desirous of luxury and possessions, wealth, riches.

The Oracle of the Tarot – Exoteric Tarot

By Paul Foster Case (1933)

Queen of Wands
The vesica pisces in the triangle represents spiritual substance, and is closely allied to the first letter Heh in IHVH. The card represents the operation of the human soul in the world of ideas.

Time period
From the beginning of the third decanate of Cancer to the end of the second decanate of Leo, July 13th to August 11th, symbolizing the influence of Jupiter-Neptune in Cancer, Sun in Leo, and Jupiter in Leo. A card of adaptability, attractive power, and power of command.

Well-dignified, a kind and generous woman, but resolute in the face of opposition. Strongly psychic and intuitive, but practical in applying her psychic gifts. Intense, magnetic, friendly to the Querant, and favorable to the success and business of the Querant. If ill-dignified, inimical to the Querant, obstinate, dangerous to the Querant’s affairs, revengeful and tyrannical.

Red-gold hair. Blue or brown eyes.
