For those who are following our FB page, this topic may be familiar. I have wrote few posts about Queens in Tarot, in a sense like they are living creatures in their environment.
In Tarot readings Court cards may cause some difficulties when we are explaining them. Sometimes they can be connected to a specific person, in other times they represent us, and sometimes they represent situations. Almost always other cards in spread are telling us which field Court cards are describing, but even then we can be unsure. The best way is to know all the things that they represent, so then we can make a sense in story, sometimes they even have double meaning, they speak in two or three languages at the same time,. For example, Queen of Cups with 6 of Wands, and 3 of Pentacles.
You can explain that like: Your compassion will bring you triumph through the hard work and things will look very bright, or you can also say, your mother will help you get over some difficulties just trust her and things will work out, or maybe, you will get things done by trusting your intuition. And maybe all that answers are correct , maybe you should get attention to all that things that cards are telling you. You should be very good with your intuition and trust yourself when you do the readings, and always listen the question very well, sometimes the answer lays in question.
When you get four Queens in a reading you can be sure that some gossips are going on behind your back, and not to mention big ones and they can do you harm.
When you get three Queens in a reading it means you will participate in the gossip which you should avoid.
When you get two Queens in a reading it means you could get in a quarrel with your female relative or friend.
So let me start with the Queens, one by one 🙂
Queen of Pentacles
Astrology relates to Libra and Taurus, and planet Venus, she loves nature, animals and all the pretty things, she loves esthetic, design, gardening and plants.

So, this is a small overview of the 4 Queens in the Tarot, you can imagine how they interact together, they are at Queen of Pentacles, having tea with some herbs for relaxation and good mood, eating pumpkin brownies with chocolate sprinkles. Queen of Swords is sitting there, not very interested, she is doing her part because they are all old friends so she had to come to this tea party. Queen of Cups and Queen of Pentacles are talking about astrology, Tarot, runes and love, Queen of Wands is annoyed with Queen of Swords, pulling the bottle of expensive rare Cognac from her purse, to get things going.
Queen of Cups is like, “oh I shouldn’t” but she knows that fun is starting, Queen of Pentacles is bringing her best china for the Cognac, Queen of Wands is talking to the Queen of Swords “Oh relax a bit, don’t hold the world on you shoulders constantly, have a sip”, Queen of Swords agrees finally after a long negotiating, and starts to melt her strict appearance, they are singing, crying, laughing and dancing.
Next morning Queen of Wands is still in the some jazz club preparing to finally go home but with a few friends, “hey it’s weekend” she is saying.
Queen of Pentacles is tidying up her home, feeding her cats and birds, drinking some potions for hangover which she gave to all the Queens before they left, still filling tipsy and joyful.
Queen of Cups is at home, drank all the potion for the hangover and preparing for mediation and sleep with a warm feeling around her heart, asking herself that maybe she could get together with her friends more often.
And Queen of Swords is like, “Jeez, I really don’t know why are that bi**es soooo immature, that old hags…” with a smile coming on her left side of the lips, opening the doors of her big house, with no one in, sipping that potion and heading straight to bed.
