Episode details

The Queen of Wands tarot card is about passion, enthusiasm, and creativity.

As a fire sign, she is constantly in motion, striving to achieve her goals.

She is confident, independent, and self-assured, and her energy is infectious.

Her ruling planet is the Sun, which symbolizes vitality and strength.

The Queen of Wands has always represented the feminine principle in tarot.

She is the counterpart to the king of wands, who means the masculine principle, which I will talk about in the next episode, which is the last of the Wands suit.

Together, they represent the perfect balance of yin and yang.

The queen is often associated with the element of fire, which is said to express her passion and intensity.

Before delving too much into the Queen of Wands' meanings, let's go over the history and appearance.

The History And Appearance Of The Queen of Wands

Historically, the queen of wands has been associated with many goddesses, including Isis, Hathor, and Sekhmet.

She is also often associated with the Queen of Cups.

In some decks, she is represented by a lioness, representing her power and ferocity.

She is also sometimes linked to the Virgin Mary. In more recent years, she has come to be seen as a powerful businesswoman or entrepreneur.

When you look at the Queen of Wands in the Rider-Waite-Smith deck, you will see the woman on a throne with lion patterns on her clothing.

The lions represent strength and fire, and these lions are facing themselves in opposite directions.

You will also see sunflowers, which mean happiness, life, and fertility, behind her crown and left hand.

She has a wand with a sprout representing life on her right hand.

If you look at her feet, you will see a black cat which means she is not afraid to be in touch with her dark side or shadow self that you may not even think of when you envision the Queen of Wands.

But like anyone else, she has a shadow side.

And let's go over what it means when you get the Queen of Wands in a reading.

What It Means When You Get The Queen of Wands In A Reading

The Queen of Wands is an excellent card for anyone pursuing a creative endeavor.

She will guide and inspire you, whether you're starting a new business, embarking on a new relationship, or simply trying to bring more creativity into your life.

So trust your instincts and follow your heart - success is sure to follow.


If you see the Queen of Wands in your reading, you are full of energy and ready to take on whatever challenges come your way.

This is a time of great vitality and strength.

Now is the time to go after your goals with passion and determination.

The Queen of Wands encourages you to follow your dreams and pursue your passions.

Trust your intuition and let your creativity shine.

It can also represent a woman in your life who has this energy, or an aspect of someone's personality, which may be yours in a situation that is relevant to the reading.

When you think of the Queen of Wands and a career, you may think of an inspiring teacher, a motivational speaker, an entrepreneur, or a coach.

If you can think of a woman who inspired you somehow, chances are she had the Queen of Wand's energy.

However, not always. That is not always the case.

And I can tell you, if you look at the Queen of Wands through the eyes of Risa Green, this is someone she would be jealous of because she represents everything that Risa wishes she had.

Full of fire and energy, popular, successful, and someone who has a true zest for life.

And I can guarantee you, if someone with that energy came up to Risa and befriended her, Risa would reject her.

Those dealing with that level of depression do not want those who have this energy around them.

And the ironic thing is that plenty of people have depression that comes off as having that type of energy.

They do what they can to hide it. Therefore, they go out of their way to appear as if they are full of zest and passion and are friendly and charismatic.

Yet they suffer within. What does it mean when the Queen of Wands is reversed?

Queen of Wands Reversed

The Queen of Wands reversed can mean two things. Either you have reached a level of confidence that you are not bothered by the opinions of others.

You know your truth. Or, it can represent the traits of the upright card, such as being determined but is not nearly as engaging.

There is introversion in the picture.

Therefore, you can imagine someone who is shy and quiet on the outside, but when they have close friends, they are the same as the Queen of Wands upright.

I should add that someone like this could also be full of passion and energy online and have a large following.

But that does not mean they are that way in public, which also does not mean they are sociable in real life.

They may decide to go for dinner or a coffee with a close friend or two once in a while.

Therefore, the Queen of Wands reversed may appear fiery and passionate online and may receive a lot of engagement.

However, the reality is that she prefers to work from home, and her idea of fun is lying on the sofa, watching a movie, and having her dog beside her.

She would do that on any day over hanging out with a group of friends or doing a public speaking engagement.

She may do a virtual live stream, however. Now, let's talk about applying this card to your life.

How To Apply The Queen of Wands To Your Life

When you are dealing with some adversity, such as business competition, for example, then the Queen of Wands is there to remind you to kick butt and to be bold in your actions and undertakings.

She is there to remind you to believe in yourself so you can conquer what you can.

If you need some support from the Queen of Wands, you can take the card and use it as a reminder to use your power and strength to get through what you need to get through.

You can see it as a Seven of Wands or a Nine of Wands type of thing. But she is there to support you.

You can also think of someone you find inspiring and who has that Queen of Wands energy.

Focus on how they overcame something and how successful they became. That alone will help you with your challenges.

Lean on them if you are fortunate enough to have a friend who matches this energy.

The next card I will go over is the King of Wands, which will conclude the Wands suit.
