Queen of Cups|
Guardian of Water
The Queen of Cups is the elemental guardian of water.
She holds court from a submerged continent where lost artifacts and ancient
treasures stand as mute witnesses to another place and time. She’s adorned
herself with gemstones and jewels, including moonlike pearl earrings that
suggest the ebb and flow of the tides. Her three-pronged tiara is styled
like Neptune’s trident.
She seems quiet and unobtrusive, but she’s sitting on
the head of a warrior, who seems alarmed at his predicament. A fallen marble
angel is a mute lady in waiting: she’s lost both arms and a wing. In the
background, four Doric columns stand like sentries. Beside the queen, a
garden of flowering sea coral adds a splash of color to the endless blue of
the underwater landscape.
Queens are also stereotypically female, and this queen
may be the most idealized version of the bunch. She is compassionate,
creative, receptive, empathic, and intuitive. She’s a constant presence in
her underwater kingdom, and she nurtures and protects her realm with
patience and love.
