The court cards of each Minor Arcana Suit represent people, and the physical and astrological characteristics of a person as well. In the case of queens, there are astrologically significant details that should be made known.  The Queen of Wands is associated with the signs of Pisces and Aries. The nature of the energy that is carried by the Queen of Wands is considered mutable for Pisces and cardinal for Aries. This shows that these individuals are very accommodating and have the quality of flexibility in their energies when the individual being identified is a Pisces, and there is creative and ambitious energy within the Aries described by the Queen of Wands. The elemental property of this particular queen, which is water energy, mixes with the energy of the suit she appears in: fire energy. The Queen of Wands shows a combination of water and fire energy which embodies application. This indicates that the Queen of Wands in a spread is speaking to application of skills and personality. The physical characteristics often found to accompany a Queen of Cups individual include brown eyes and light to dark brown hair. It is advised that the querent pay attention to the woman depicted in the Queen of Wands that has these physical characteristics.

Although there is very little to go on in terms of an outright card meaning, the surrounding cards will be of immense influence and importance to the Queen of Wands and the interpretation of it.

The Queen of Wands in an Upright Position

The upright positioning of the Queen of Wands shows a woman who is very comfortable with herself and her abilities. She is enthusiastic about many different causes and does well for each of them through her politeness and charm. She loves animals and sometimes finds it easier to deal with them than human beings. She is a very charismatic lady who can get people to agree with her in most circumstances due to her warmth. She is usually a very positive person and like to have people around her who are the same. Whenever a court card appears in a spread, it does not necessarily always signify a real human being, but a quality within the card that the querent needs to take up as part of his own persona or philosophies in order to experience growth and a better outlook on life.

The querent can take after the Queen of Wands or may need to take on some of her qualities when she is shown in a spread. The querent may have to learn to be more charming with other people, and they may need to learn how to keep their energy in a positive place in order to be as warm and inviting of a person as possible. The querent may find that they would benefit from getting a pet for their therapeutic properties, or even just for companionship. There may be a need for the querent to have an enthusiastic personality in order to get what they want form others, and there could be a lack of comfort in the querent’s life that is making it hard to be optimistic.

The Queen of Wands in a Reversed Position

A reversal of a court card has an inverse meaning that corresponds with the court card it is attached to. The Queen of Wands reversal is seen as a woman who always gets her way and settles for little else than that. She uses intimidation tactics and other ploys to influence people’s decisions. She is very cliquey and catty when someone goes against her, and she is bossy. The reversed Queen of Wands can also be quite the know-it-all who can’t be argued with at all. She can twist one’s words and trick them into feeling like they’re wrong when the conversation began with them being right. She’s intimidating and has great social prowess: enough to have one ostracised for disagreeing with her. The reversed Queen of Wands is a very nice person when she’s nice, but her control over people is unbecoming and hurtful in many ways, making her someone who shouldn’t be toyed with. If there are court cards around her, these are the objects of her affection and focus.

The querent may find that they are embodying several of these behaviours themselves. The querent may find that they can get to be very manipulative when they aren’t getting what they want, and although this can work well for them, their partners and colleagues won’t be so enthused to work with them. There is a possibility that the querent is also very social and able to change the opinions of others without any difficulties. The Queen of Wands in a reversed position can show where one is becoming too mean-spirited and vengeful. The querent must beware these issues as they can become blockages to their goals. If these qualities are not found within the querent, they are urged to look at the people in their circle that have these types of personality traits. Although, it would be best not to cross them.
