Tarot February 2024 The Queen of CupsLove and Compassion Rule the Queen

The Queen of Cups in Tarot stands for being loving, tenderhearted, intuitive, psychic, and spiritual. The Queen of Cups meaning in a Tarot card reading is a combination of the positive water energy of all Cups and the inward focus of a Queen. She always has a loving and sensitive nature. She never reacts with impatience or anger, and she has a kind word for everyone. She is compassionate and lets her heart lead the way. The Queen is more open to her inner knowledge and trusts her intuition. She reveres all aspects of the divine’s creation, loves and embraces everyone, and is moved by the tragedies and beauties of life.

Prioritizing Support and Care

In a general context, the Queen of Cups Tarot card can generally signify a woman, or women, in your life who will be supportive and caring towards you. This Minor Arcana card is also a sign that you should be mindful of how you treat yourself and others or treat people with compassion and sympathy. She can also indicate that you may be more sensitive than you let on to the outside world and that harsh actions or hurtful comments affect you more than you show to the outside world. This card can also indicate a tendency to daydream and a big imagination. As a person, the Queen of Cups represents a mature female or feminine person who is kind, caring and supportive. The Queen of Cups is a sentimental, sensitive soul and a good listener. She is empathetic to the feelings of others. As a mother, partner, or friend, the Queen of Cups is affectionate, loving and warm. However, she can also be shy and tend to daydream. She is creative, artistic, and intuitive and she appreciates beauty. 

The Queen of Cups can also represent the trusted inner voice you have within you.

Put Major Financial Decisions on the Back Burner

In a career context, the Queen of Cups can be an indication that you need to consider if your current career is fulfilling your emotional as well as material needs. This card can indicate that you would be suited to a career in a caring profession such as nursing, counseling or healing or a creative field such as art or fashion. It can also indicate that an emotionally mature female will offer you the support and guidance you need in your career. She can also be a reminder to focus on the emotional well-being of yourself and your work colleagues rather than just focusing on business. In a financial context, the Queen of Cups is a good omen as you should be experiencing financial security when she appears. However, this card tells you not to get caught up in making investments or complicated financial deals. Keep an eye on your finances but the other areas of your life should be taking precedence when she appears.

The Queen – Reversed

When the reversed Queen of Cups shows up in a Tarot reading, you need to draw your attention inward and focus on your emotional well-being. You’re great at taking care of others – but now it’s time to take care of YOU. This card suggests that you are emotionally drained because you have been so busy supporting others, but not yourself. You may need to set firm boundaries with your loved ones so that they know you love them but will not take on their emotional baggage. You can hold space for them, but ultimately, they are responsible for their feelings and life experiences, and they need to go on their own journey to learn how to cope.

  • The reversed Queen of Cups could mean you are wrapped up in other people’s emotional responses and have created a co-dependent relationship that is not healthy for either party. You may be giving too much of yourself away, receiving little in return. Or you may be inadvertently fostering dependency so you feel needed. Examine your relationships and see where you can create a healthy detachment. Where can you still give emotional support but not to the detriment of one another?
  • The Queen of Cups reversed is often a sign that your intuition is on overdrive right now, but to hear it, you need to give yourself the time and the space to listen. It doesn’t matter how busy you think you are – see this as your sign to reconnect with your intuition and tune in to your inner voice.
  • At times the reversed Queen of Cups is a warning that you are letting your heart rule over your head and your emotions may overwhelm you. If this resonates, ground yourself, express your feelings privately or with a trusted therapist/coach, and then work through why they’ve bubbled up this way. Be careful not to let your emotions overtake your life in such a way that you worry you are losing control and perspective. Take some quiet time for yourself and meditate or write in your journal. Find a peaceful space to center and calm your soul. Listen carefully to your intuition and your inner voice.
  • On the flip side, the Queen of Cups reversed suggests that you may be out of touch with your emotions or forced to restrict or hold them down deep inside. You may struggle to express yourself, instead bottling up your feelings. If you do not address these emotional issues, they will reach a boiling point. Your stress levels may increase, and your ability to cope with everyday problems could suffer.
  • The reversed Queen of Cups invites you to explore your innermost feelings and emotions to understand what makes you tick. Spend some time alone with just your journal and your pen (Advice from Carolyn Jones). Connect in with your feelings. How are you feeling? How are you really feeling? It doesn’t matter whether you’re experiencing positive or negative emotions. You are being called to listen to your true feelings and honor them in the process.
