Queen of Cups

     The Queen of Cups is one of the cards of the Minor Arcana, however I have classified it as a Royal because it, like all other Queens, it represents the adult Feminine nature of this particular suit. This, like all other Queens, represents the Matriarchal or parent self. Depicted on this card is a queen in flowing robes sitting in contemplation of an ornate and intricately designed cup, as if she saw a vision wherein. Water surrounds the garden spot on which the throne stands; cupids adorn the throne.

     There is a myriad of symbolisms on this and many of the other cards in both the major and minor arcana. In order to present a comprehensive and easy to use as a reference source set of pages for this and other cards, I will refrain from going into great detail regarding the individual symbols on the cards. On a future date I will go over the more explicit aspects of them. If you have a question regarding a particular symbol you can email me at Tamerin.
