Queen of Cups

The Queen of Cups is a compassionate, nurturing Queen. Her strength lies in her emotions — a bit of a strange concept in our culture, where we so often view emotions as a weakness or liability.  But the Queen of Cups recognizes that the ability to feel is a strength, that it brings greater compassion and empathy for others.  Yet she must be careful not to become ruled by her emotions, to make sure that she doesn’t allow the extremes of emotions to take over.

When the Queen of Cups shows up, ask yourself if you are showing compassion and empathy — to others and to yourself? Are you allowing yourself to experience emotions? Or are you letting your feelings take over and cloud your perception? How can you learn to feel while still remaining centered?
