The Queen of Cups ~ Love and Mystery
Tarot Tuesday! The card for the week is the Queen of Cups, representing: Mystery, feelings, love and emotional integrity. The Queen of cups is surrounded by water, her natural domain. “Her being cannot be understood intellectually. You must feel and sense it. She is a mysterious presence, and if you want to know her you will have to go deeply into the realm of sensitivity and feeling.”*
The Queen of Cups is ruled by the astrological sign of Cancer, symbolizing home, family and Mother. She connects us to our matriarchal ancestors, the wise women who have walked before us. She wears her gemstone, the pearl, as an earring, showing her connection to the seas and to timeless wisdom. The pearl is the oldest known gemstone, and associated with the moon. Like the Queen of Cups, the pearl offers protection and security. If you’re looking for comfort from your woes, she will nurture you and provide a safe harbor.
If this watery Queen has surfaced in your life, it is a time to connect more deeply with your feelings and emotions. Know that by being willing to show your feelings you become beautiful, in the most divine sense of the word. Love blossoms freely, as you realize that no one can take away your emotional freedom, unless you let them. The more authentic you are in your emotions, the stronger you become and more willing to give of yourself.
Wishing you a divinely loving week!
