The Tarot of the Old Path Queen of Cauldrons is dressed in a richly pearl decorated blue costume because blue is the color implying the element water.
Ermine trimmed cloak implies dignity.
The Queen of Cauldrons, represents an attractive gentle person who has expressive eyes and a generous sensual mouth. On her lap is a peach, implying that she possess good qualities of character.
The Three peaked design on her crown suggests the three states of the Goddess, maid, mother and crone.
The hand supporting the Cauldron has on it a sapphire ring, which again implies water, and the cauldron is reflecting all that is around her suggesting that this gentle woman is sensitive to all that is around her.
The primary meaning of this card, is about a woman who is at ease in any situation and is kind, warm, and gentle of heart.She may have brown hair, and hazel eyes, and is interested in the or talented in the arts. An attractive and romantic person who is touched by all she sees.
The Thoth Deck Queen of Cups, represents the Watery aspect of Water, it's the power of reflection and reception. That is why there seems to be no Queenly Human form in the card, yet subtlety it is there.
The Queen of Cups is a "mirror" which reflects the nature of the one "looking" at Her. She rules in the zodiac from the 21st degree of Gemini to the 20th degree of Cancer.
To see the Truth of the Queen of Cups is hardly possible, as she not only reflects the nature of the observer but that she is also associated with dreaminess, tranquility, and illusion.
In the Thoth deck tarot, she is enthroned on still water, and bears the Lotus cup of Isis, and the Crayfish of a shell cup---crayfish represent the regenerative state of water as they shed their shell to become anew.
The endless curves of light robe and veil her and the sea upon which she is sitting, reflects her almost unbroken images of the image she represents. Being the perfect agent of reflection and reception, she is unaffected by what she is transmitting.
The chief pleasure of this type of Archetypical personality is to lead and attract others. Such a person seems not to have a great character of their own as they are reflecting those around them. Of course, to do so requires a skill in receptivity.
If ill dignified, all these bright reflective and receptive properties are distorted by her own inner turbulence and everything that passes through her is refracted and distorted. Generally speaking, her characteristics depend on the influences which affect her.
Such a woman , if not ill dignified, would easily be receptive to a mans wants and reflect his passions, seemingly the perfect reflection of her husband. Her inner fantasies and dreams totally unaffected by him.
She is the "Moon Pool" of the Oracle or Seer as she is receptive to their seeking and reflective of forms past, present and future. Since She is extreme in surface reflectivity, most of us fail to see the depth of Her but there is more than one side of a Mirror and Her dark, depths , called the Dark Isis, should be avoided by the frivolous for only well trained initiates of Gnosis, can find their way back from such a journey! The Abyss of the Dark Night of the Soul is on the "other side of the Mirror" that reflects form and the nature of the observer....on the dark side, there is no reflection only endless reception and we lose our self-image and become the Darkness observing itself!
Personality wise, the Queen of Cups personality will often be very popular, as she seems to "fit in" were-ever she goes.
