Queen Of Cups

Queen Of Cups


The Queen of Cups is a young and beautiful woman, seated on a throne by the sea. She is the queen of the suit of cups. She admires the golden cup she holds in her hand which has decorated handles in the shape of angels. The angel motif is also repeated on one side of the throne. Her throne is decorated with motifs of fish, sea nymphs and scallop shells and she sits under a pleasant blue sky. The water near her is calm. She places her feet on the pebbles before her. It is also always good to know about the opposing card, the Queen Of Cups Reversed.

While the sea and fish symbolize the unconscious mind, the water stands for perception, emotion and spirit. It feels as if she is one with her emotions. In this card, the Queen’s emotions and thoughts emerge from her subconscious and recesses of her soul.

Queen of Cups in an Upright Position

In this cups tarot card, there are so many references to the sea that there’s a clear reference to the unconscious mind, while the Queen of Cups has her feet firmly placed on the ground. This proves that she is firmly rooted in reality.

One foot of the Queen is revealed and perhaps a little wet with the seawater, while the other is hidden. She is immersed in unraveling the mysteries of the cup, which signifies the spiritual world and her creativity.

The seashells, nymphs and fish symbolize the birth of the goddess of fertility, Venus. This Suit of Cups is linked with artistry and creativity. However, since we all need a balance in life, her creativity is nicely balanced with her rootedness in reality.
