The Queen of Wands is likely to represent you or another important female in your life. If the Queen of Wands does not symbolize you or your lover it is possible she is someone who (good or bad) has a say in the situation at hand or an individual who will become relevant in the future.
The Queen of Wands is the ambitious female of the Court Cards. She is the type of woman who wants to climb the career ladder or run her own business. In fact, many Queen of Wands characters end up in positions of authority due to their leadership qualities and ability to take charge of creative projects.
This Queen is also known for taking pride in being a good friend and ally. Although she enjoys being in charge, she weighs up the feelings of others before making any judgements or decisions. She likes to think she treats everyone fairly.
When not in the board room, The Queen of Wands enjoys the natural wonders the Earth has to offer. She will take frequent trips to the zoo, strolls in nature and walks off the beaten track. The Queen of Wands has an interest in keeping fit and taking care of her health.
In a more negative reading the Queen can represent an ambitious and domineering female who stands between you and the things you want.
Alternatively, it is possible that you are the one who is controlling and oppressive, trying to micro manage the people around you. If this is the case, then you need to take a step back and check yourself.
The Queen of Wand's Historical Meaning
Before the 1950’s this card was usually always read as representing a woman who had an interest in the seeker. Typically, she lived or originated from the country, not the city. Sometimes this card can also symbolize that you or the Queen of Wand’s character has an obsession with money, possibly to the point of greed but also success in business (hence the modern interpretation).
The Queen of Wands in a Love Tarot Reading
The Queen of Wands is a rather strange card to receive for a love Tarot reading. While this Queen usually means no ill will, she is often wrapped up in her own ambitions, wants and needs.
It is possible that the Queen of Wands is a sign that either you or your partner is very focused on their work, and even their friends, but not on the relationship. They do not set out to be this way intentionally but can be inconsiderate with their feelings and actions; if you would like to discover your partner's true feelings towards you, you can do this with my Love Tarot Meanings e-book.
The Queen has a reputation for being bossy and doctorial in the pursuit of what she wants. Perhaps you are putting too much pressure on your partner and trying to badger them into wanting the same things which you do.
If in an outcome position, the Queen of Wands can represent someone who will come into your life and help your relationship. However, if the reading is more negative it can predict a woman who will come between you and your partner in the future.
The Queen of Wands in a Business Tarot Reading
The Queen of Wands is a very positive card for business. It shows that you (or another individual represented by this card) are business minded, to the extent that you have the qualities to make some serious money through your endeavours.
The Queen has the positive aspects of the Page and Knight of Wands with the added maturity and will-power to see things through to the end. She is intelligent, creative and cares about her work. In fact, I would go as far to say that the Queen of Wands encompasses all of the positive aspects of all of the Queens in a business capacity.
However, there will be times when the Queen appears as a negative in a business reading. In these situations it can simply mean that you are so focused and driven you do not take time to pause. If the Queen pops up in an outcome position of a business reading, it can mean that you one day will develop all of the qualities of a Queen of Wands, but you do not have them yet.
