When it appears in a Tarot reading, the Queen of Cups symbolises a loyal female. This individual may appear as you or another woman in your life.
Those she loves is the Queen priority. She always considers other individuals and puts others above herself. No matter what they did or didn’t do, the Queen sees their side and gives them nothing but compassion and empathy.
Sometimes, the Queen of Cups can appear in a Tarot reading when you need to be more like the Queen. It can mean that you’re not looking at other people’s side and selfishly focusing on your wants and needs. Ask yourself, “How can I be more understanding when it comes to the feelings of others?”
A more negative trait of the Queen of Cups, is that she can be willing to overlook things. Even if someone she loves is in the wrong, she is still willing to advocate for them. Individuals close to her can also easily hurt her feelings, especially if they are not as loyal and warm as she is.
If the Queen of Cups appears in the Outcome position of a Tarot reading, this can mean that you will meet a female with her qualities in the future who will assist you in some way. Sometimes the destiny of a situation can be in the Queen’s hands.
