The Queen of Cups is among the most loving archetypes in the tarot deck. She indicates compassion, love, and concern for ourselves and our fellow man. Often when the "court cards" come up in a reading, they indicate an actual person, in this case a woman, in our lives. The majority of the time when the queen of Cups appears, and is "standing in" for a person, she is representing a female with hair on the lighter end of the spectrum.
Generally the Queen of Cups indicates female energy that is solidly "in your corner," that women in your life are very much supportive of you and/or that a woman will come to your aid. The queen of Cups also reminds us to treat ourselves with love and compassion. No matter who and where you are, there are things in you that are worthy of love and respect
Career & Employment
In the context of work the Queen usually indicates a literal woman who will be very helpful to you. Often this woman has light colored hair. The queen reminds us to bring love and compassion to our work, and that this is possible even if we work in a factory with objects all day rather than people. Things are probably better in your working world when this card appears than you are realizing. Think positively.
Love & Relationships
When the Queen of Cups comes up in the context of love, she often indicates a very positive outlook about a relationship. If you are single and she appears, it's a good indicator that you should "get out and mingle," as a new, very positive, romance may be on the horizon. The thing is, when she appears, it is easy to get carried away regarding love. Keep your balance and your perspective. Even with the excitement of brand new love, it's important to keep track of the other things happening in our lives.
Finances & Income
The Queen of Cups often indicates good news with relation to finance. No matter what is happening in your financial life, give yourself a break, and know that you can make a positive difference if you have need of more prosperity in your life. The queen indicates creativity and that you can reach out to others (particularly women) now, and get the help and advice that you need to make a positive difference financially. Again, expect positive movement.
Mental & Physical Health
This card signifies support and love in the context of health. If you have need of healing, look to women/those with strong feminine energy. She also indicates the need to be loving and supportive of yourself, particularly if you are facing health challenges. If you are dealing with illness of some type, the queen of Cups can mean that you need to forgive and send love to your body. No matter the situation, your body has doubtless been good to you in some ways. Think positively and trust in the universe's healing energy. She can also mean good news with regard to health.
You are likely to be very in touch with the inter-relatedness of all beings now. The Queen of Cups can indicate marked increases in clairvoyant experiences. Be open to the magical energy of life and feel the love flowing all around you. A woman may be an important spiritual leader to you now. Whether male or female yourself, consider feminine archetypes and energy now. They will lead you into new and deeper spiritual understandings
