For each card interpretation, I use my knowledge of the card’s history paired with a literary and artistic analysis of images and symbols interacting on the card’s face. I chose the Rider-Waite deck because the images are clean and great for interpreting. This deck was originally published in 1910 and is one of the more popular decks used in the English-speaking world. Following each card description, I provide readers with a few bullet points they can use to apply the card’s meaning to that of their own lives.The questions are only meant as a guide; the person receiving the reading needs to take charge, deciding how the card is applicable to them.
The Queen of Cups is a sensitive card that combines the positive water forces of the suit with the thoughtful and loving nature of the Queen. The cup that the queen holds is always closed, which means that the thoughts and feelings associated with this card emanate from within the subconscious.
