A few words to describe the card:

Listen to your emotions, intuition, follow your heart

Queen of Cups

The queen of cups tarot card is where the element water meets water. This is a very powerful connection and should be noted.

This card often represents divination or people who practice divination, like tarot or any other forms. This queen is often one who has a strong intuition and can solve some of the more difficult problems.

As cups symbolize emotions and feelings, this queen is listening to those thoughts coming from the cup. She’s letting those guide her in her life.

Often this tarot card depicts a woman sitting on a crown, surrounded by water, looking at the cup she holds in her hands. She is the picture of empathy, with having a very strong understanding of emotions.

If this card is present in a tarot spread, it can symbolize going to someone in your life for advice that has a great intuition, or really understands emotions. This is how you can gain insight.

Alternatively, this card can represent the need for you to follow your heart. When trying to make a decision, listen to your emotions and lead with what your heart tells you; rather than any external influences or listening to your head.

Take the time to think about your emotions and feelings. You could be ignoring them when this card comes to you, and this is a reminder that what you feel does matter and is important.

Your feelings are a great guide, but you do have to listen to them to gain clarity. Try to take a moment to note what you’re feeling.

Still Confused?

Still confused about the meanings of the cards? A few tools that have been really helpful for me have been: practice, taking the time to look at each card, read books like Tarot: Learn How to Read and Interpret the Cards by Kim Arnold. Or try out tarot spreads! Try doing a simple reading every day. The Labyrinthos app is really helpful too. Or try some that I’ve created by looking here: Tarot Spreads.
