A Queen is one of the strongest and most influential members of the royal court. Even in the old times, queens were the rulers at many places. In the places where kings were the rulers, the queens were their right hands and most trusted allies. They kept and protected state secrets. A Queen was not only the wife of a king but also the mother of the next king of a kingdom. The attributes of a queen were fertility, management, mercy, creativity, and authority. A Queen’s personality is matched with water that is flowing, nurturing, life-giving, and having a steady and controlled flow and the cycle of emotions. The Queen of wands is Water of Fire.
The Imagery and Symbolism of the Queen of Wands Tarot Card
The Queen of Wands is sitting on a throne that is a seat of power. Two lions are engraved in the arms of the throne and the other two are made at the back of the throne. That can be a tapestry that is hanging behind her. The lions are fiery and majestic animals and depict strength and courage. The queen is wearing a yellow robe that shows joy, optimism, and clarity and a white cape on her back is a symbol of purity and perfection. She is wearing a crown on her head that shows her power and authority and green leaves emerging from the crown symbolize growth and fertility. She is holding a wand in one hand that shows her fiery energies and passion and a sunflower in the other hand. Sunflower is a symbol of loyalty and dedication. Her throne is set on a grey platform; the grey color symbolizes neutrality and impartiality. There are three mounds in her background that show her past achievements. A black cat sitting at her feet is a symbol of mystery, secrets, and rebirth. Overall her image reflects strength, generosity, and determination.
Astrology and the Queen of Wands
The Queen of Wands rules the first and second decan of the fiery sign of Aries and the third decan of Pisces. Aries rules the Emperor in Major Arcana. People born under the sign of Aries are adventurous, energetic, courageous, confident, dynamic, and quick-witted, just like the Queen of Wands. Pisces brings the qualities of kindness, compassion, and sensitivity to a person. The Queen of Wands is a perfect combination of the qualities of both signs.
Queen of Wands and Kabbalah
In Kabbalah, all four queens and all the threes belong to the Sefirot of Binah (Understanding). This sefirah is the energy from which all life emerges. Binah is the giver of life and the Queen of Wands belongs to Binah in Atziluth, which is the highest of the four worlds.

So you may say that the Queen of Wands can represent any mature adult.

This card represents such people who are confident, dynamic, motivated, loyal, and dedicated and also keep a sensitive side. It shows the people who are charming and attractive but have control of their intimate desires. This card may also represent such mothers who are also successful entrepreneurs.
