In a general reading, the Queen of Wands signifies a bold outlook to life. You will need to take the bull by the horns and get going. The Queen of Wands is the card you get when you want to travel to the highest peak in the world or if you want to do something daring and exciting.
The Queen of Wands asks you to get your business in order. Make a list and check it twice. She's an innovator and a manager. She may represent an aspect of yourself or someone that you know. You could have an important meeting with your boss that needs to be addressed. If you have any issues or grievances you should speak up.
The Queen of Wands in a reading could have something to do with cats. On a mundane level, I pulled this card the day I decided to get a new cat. I had not planned on getting a cat, but that day I just *knew* I had to get to the humane society because there was a special cat there. The Queen of Wands was telling me that I would come home with a cat!
The Queen of Wands is the personae you need to invoke inside yourself when you need the power to confront someone or something at all odds. Isn't the Queen of Wands the woman you want beside you in a corporate board meeting? She will never be afraid to stand up and say the truth. The Queen of Wands can help you meditate about ways in which you too can draw out your inner lioness and take control of your life or a particular situation.
If she does choose to be a housewife, she does it with ease and charm. She's the type that will have her husband’s shirts ironed and pressed, dinner on the table in a graceful and elegant fashion and the children in order.
She loves creative games, art projects and physical activities. She is the PTA mom, the organizer and the planner. She will probably have her children involved in various activities. She may even have some kind of side job whether it be an online business selling her handcrafted items on Etsy or a part-time yoga instructor.
The Queen of Wands loves to throw parties and her kids parties are no exception. They will definitely be themed and organized. Even if you aren’t totally acquainted with her, don’t be surprised if she sends you an invitation. She wants to create an exciting, inviting and fun experience. Everyone joins in! It’s these parties where she sees an opportunity to not only entertain, but network. Match making single parents might even be in her sights. (Even friends when she’s throwing parties for the adults.)
She can be single or married. In a relationship, she doesn't like to be tied down completely. She needs her freedom. She also needs adventure. Outdoor activities like hiking or rock climbing would be ideal. She is attracted to men who are passionate and fiery like herself. Someone who stays in every night will bore her. If you want to seduce the Queen of Wands just ask her to do something spontaneous. If you ask her, "Do you want to take a trip to Brazil tomorrow?" Be prepared for her to answer, "Yes!" (Even if Brazil is an 18-hour flight!)
I've read time and time again that her legs are spread to indicate sexuality. I do not agree with this assessment. If this was true, then a man sitting with his legs straight together would also represent sexuality, but it doesn't. What I see in this picture is a woman giving birth. If we go back and look at the picture of Cybele we see that her legs are also spread. Sex and birth are one in the same, but our culture currently distorts sexuality. I'd rather see the Queen of Wands as giving birth to ideas. She is the fertile incubator of ideas that spring forth life.
In a love reading, the Queen of Wands indicates something that will happen rapidly. It also indicates for a woman that you are in charge of the relationship and for a man it indicates that she is in charge of the way the relationship will go. The Queen of Wands is highly selective in who she gives her time and energy too. I wouldn't expect a woman like that to be "highly sexual." Not just any man can turn this lady on. He's going to have to bring the fire.
This idea indicates that in a love reading, the Queen of Wands brings passion and a spark that will ignite the flame into a relationship. She brings great love and enthusiasm to the relationship.
And how can a woman who is guarded by lions and a cat be sexual? My cat chooses who she likes and is finicky on when she wants attention. The women in the tarot who represent unabashed sexuality are the Empress (mainly reversed) and the Queen of Pentacles.
