QUEEN OF CUPS
To an Astrologer,She rules from 21 degrees Gemini to 20 degrees Cancer.
To a Qabalist, She is Water of Water, i.e. Specific Water in the World of Primal Water.
If you'll notice, there is a Crayfish in her cup and she has her right hand with lotus on an Ibis, The Crayfish relates to the Moon and one of the characteristics of this card is that its flow changes to the influences around it. The Ibis is in the Egyptian tradition, a bird associated with Thoth-Hermes who has an aspect of being The Moon God. The lotus in her right hand is a flower sacred to Isis. These waters on which the lotus float are a means of transmission of Forces (emotions).
The Divinatory meaning of this card, represents a mature woman with a deep sexual and fertility powers which can manifest as motherhood or giving birth to a creative line of work. In whatever she is doing she is deeply, emotionally, committed.
Everything in her life is about nourishment, sexual exchange, giving and receiving with deep passionate feeling.
In a more esoteric vein, The Queen of Cups is the Emotional Reflector (notice the reflection on the water of this card). People find it easy to discuss or express feelings honestly and responsibly around the Querent, with out fear of blame or judgment. However, the Querent has probably been blamed for too much imagination which one easily does with this much water (subconscious mental influence) allowing easy creation of fantasies but lacks the motivation to fulfill them. The shimmering, beautiful , and tranquil aspects of the Queen of Cups, reflects well on the Querent whose maternal love and stable support make her very popular with others. The only ill defined aspect of this card is that fantasy becomes more popular in her mind than reality----making it difficult for her to deal with "real world" problems. She is also mainly unseen, as she reflects the feeling, emotion and image of the one examining her. This card is usually well defined, especially if other Cup or Wand cards are around her. She mixes well with Sun-light.
