The Queen of Cups is a card of intuition, emotional maturity, and feminine power. She represents a nurturing and compassionate figure who is in touch with her emotions and can use them to bring healing and understanding to others. In a reading, she may indicate a person or situation that embodies these qualities, or she may encourage the querent to connect with their own intuition and emotions in order to navigate a situation with more wisdom and compassion.
In the reverse position, the Queen of Cups can suggest a lack of emotional maturity or an overemphasis on emotion that is causing problems. It may indicate that the querent is being overly emotional or allowing their feelings to cloud their judgement, or that someone in their life is being manipulative or emotionally dishonest. It can also suggest a need to set better emotional boundaries or to connect with the deeper, more intuitive aspects of oneself in order to find clarity and balance.
